Tenth Month-sary As A Couple: Diamond Jewelry!

By: Mhe-anne L. Ojeda -Isidro

Tin, Aluminum and Diamond jewelry are associated with tenth wedding anniversary since a marriage that lasted for ten (10) years is said to be flexible and durable (like tin & aluminum) and beautiful like diamonds. So on our one-oh month-sary as a couple (and trying to make - up for missing my husband's birthday yesterday), I decided to fulfill the condition for the cash gift given by a very dear friend, and got ourselves a custom-made matching rings, 14 karat yellow gold adorned with titus diamonds

our wedding rings 
My dear friend gave us a generous cash gift on our wedding day and indicated that it should be used for a purchase of a 40 - inches LED TV and wedding rings, two gifts that will always remind us of her. But since we still have our respective old and simple television sets and our simple wedding rings, we held off with the purchase until now. Glad our tenth month-sary is a timely excuse to get those shiny sparkling gem as a gift! 

To complete the tenth month-sary celebration, we wrapped up the day with a visit to the newly opened Fairview Terraces Mall in Maligaya, Fairview, Quezon City. The mall is the biggest integrated medium to upscale shopping development of Ayala corporation unveiled last February 28, 2014. It was our first time there and really impressed with its artful, creative, spacious, lush green looks. From the various dining options, we chose Recipes and ordered Tofu with Garlic Sauce (P135), Chicken Curry (P190), Plain Rice (P38 each), Mango shake (P85) and Dessert of the Day /Buko Pandan with Ice cream (P90). Oh my! The food is really tasty and did not cost us a ton! We love it and were filled! 

Just like the food served by RECIPES which are based from tested recipes, there is also a RECIPE for a Happy Marriage so that we will not only last till our tenth wedding anniversary but until eternity. I found this poem - 

"Recipe for a Happy Marriage"

Combine two caring hearts Melt into one Add alot of love Mix well with respect, and trust Add gentleness, laughter, faith, hope, and joy. Pour in much understanding (Don't forget patience) Sprinkle with kisses and, a dash of hugs Bake for a life time Yield: One Happy Couple
