93rd Monthsary at YABU

One of the cutest and most romantic gestures Paolo (my fiance, and boyfriend for 7++ years) and I have is celebrating our monthsary religiously. I know, when you're a teenager, or a new couple, celebrating monthsary is mandatory but for "old" couples like us (who have been having monthsaries, anniversaries since 2004) monthsys are quite umm, normal.

But not in our case. Celebrating our monthsary every 16th of the month has been a tradition. For SEVEN years, we make sure that we greet each other once the clock strikes 12MN (Yes, teenage habits never grow old!) and a special lunch /  breakfast / dinner date must be set on that special day.

And for our 93rd month, Paolo chose to celebrate it at YABU.
Paolo personally chose this place (no not because he has Japanese blood) because he has been wanting to try the best Katsu everyone is raving about. Being a Japanese food lover himself, he cannot miss the chance of trying out a great resto like YABU

And as expected Yabu exceeded our expectations.

Look at the excitement on Pao's face while grinding and making his tempura sauce
Since I'm addicted to pork tonkatsu (or anything that is deep friend and breaded), I made sure that I ordered their Hire Katsu Set (150grams!!)
And oh, wow! It was a piece of heaven. I've never tasted pork tonkatsu that is as tender and as crispy as Yabu's. I'm a bit particular with meat's tenderness cause its always been hard to bite / cut (food pieces) using my teeth (cause of my bite problems resulted from wearing braces). But with the Hire set, eating was a breeze. And I also loved how the breading sticks to meat perfectly -- it won't come off (as what normally happens on other Katsu). Adding the perfect japanese rice, miso soup-- my Hire Set was indeed orgasmic.
On the other side, Paolo (who is always in "diet" mode) had 150g(!!) Chicken Katsu which he also enjoyed. I loved the fact that he kept on saying SARAAAP every 3 minutes on our meal (which he does everytime he's blown away with any sort of food) and had 3 cups of rice (take note: he stopped / decreased eating rice for since January!) just because he enjoyed the food so much!
Obviously, both of us left the place with happy tummies and happy smiles. We've never enjoyed Japanese food as much as we enjoyed YABU and yes, we are reccommending it! (The reason why I am writing a blogpost about it because we are so overwhelmed with YABU's great food). Aside from that, the staff are so friendly and warm that made our dining very comfortable.

After our "perfect date" at YABU (did I mention that we purposely not eat breakfast and lunch just for this? haha!), we watched Prometheus (which I regret) and made a little shoe shopping in between. It was one of those cute, laidback dates we had and I truly enjoyed it. It makes our relationship feel so young and fresh. :)
And oh, I would like to share to you my current facebook profile photo. :) A lot of people were tricked and thought that we've gotten married already, but not. This was taken a month ago at a friend's wedding which we took to give us a preview of what's bound to happen Nov 16 next year.

PS: It was actually my idea to collect the flowers on the table and pose like this. Cute and sweet!:)

Much Love,

Wow! What a sweet tradition! We don't celebrate our monthly anniversary- but we do try and take the time spend special time together! Lately it has been challenging (new job, new city, etc etc)- but it is important to staying connected!
