The 100 Pesos Date Challenge

My boyfriend and I love going on what we call "mini dates". It is defined as a date after work on a weekday (in our dictionary). Sometimes, it is planned. Sometimes, it is totally random that one of us would invite each other out to eat (since our place of work are far from each other). Recently, we had a P100.00 date! Happy happy dates need not burn a hole in your wallet after all. :)

We went to Shangri-La Mall and ate at Steak Escape. It was at the Garden Court at the ground level. I never knew there were cheap food in Shangri-La. We were drawn to this particular brand because it was the only stall/mini-resto in the area that had a line waiting to be served. The others were serving the usual fast food so we wanted something different for a change.

Here's what we ordered:

Chicken Strips with Java Rice (P45.00)

Burger Steak with Java Rice (P55.00)

I loved that these meals were served with lots of rice plus free soup, which was not included in the pictures. The meals were tasty, but there was nothing special in it (aside from the fact that I was eating it with my loved one). :)

For a job well done, we rewarded ourselves with this:

Dunkin' Yan in Chocolate (P36.00)

This reminded me of Meiji's Yan Yan. I ate only 3 sticks because I found it too sweet. I prefer their Strawberry Sprinkle Donut, which is my favorite (because it's pink, pretty, and yummy).

I hoped you enjoyed reading about our P100.00 (+ P36.00) date challenge. You should try it too at least once. :D



  1. During our earlier years together, MB and I had a P500 date. We wanted to do this 100-peso thing but couldn't as we wanted to include even the transpo expenses. That's how we came up with the amount. It's really fun as it pushes you to be creative and just enjoy each other's company.

  2. Oh yeah, I forgot to include the transpo expense! :D P500 date is also a great date. It proves that we don't need to spend a lot to have fun. :)

  3. you know, this post reminded me of my pichi and I when we were still dating. hahahaha.. we'd spend 30 pesos to watch a movie in SM Manila, since it has a 15 peso movie ticket promo, then spend 14 pesos on transportation to go to robinsons Ermita, buy some food not costing to above 50 pesos and chill in his condo unit at padre faura.. and we really enjoyed every moment. hay those were the days.. ^^

    1. I remember those movie "sales" at SM Manila! I thought they were P10 each. Haha! Cheap dates are okay as long as you're enjoying each other's company. :)

  4. hahaha! it was 10 pesos before? And I thought it was already cheap hahaha! cool!
