Planning a Valentine’s date can be a tad difficult. Aside from having the default date places like cinemas and malls packed, going on a date can be quite expensive. But that doesn’t always have to the case, really. Here are some ideas on what to do or where to go without breaking the bank this Valentine’s.
10. Spring Film Festival at Shangri-la Plaza
If you and your date are movie buffs, try watching a movie at Shangri-la Plaza Mall’s Spring Film Festival. Different movie genres are available here; just make sure to line-up a bit early as tickets are limited.
Cost: Free Admission
9. Eat and Run at Kpub
Foodies can Eat and Run at Kpub Trinoma! For one (1) hour, you can eat all you can from the selection of meat, banchan (korean sides), gerranjjim (steamed egg), kimchi pancakes, house salad, ssam, spring rolls, and rice punch for dessert.
