FATHERS have a special and unique way of showing their love for the family. They work hard to provide for the financial and material needs of their beloved wives and children. They squeeze in quality time to bond with the kids while they, at the same time, try to make time to keep fit not just for their own benefit but to stay healthy for the family.
On Father’s Day this Sunday, June 17, 2018, we turn the table on them and celebrate the special men of the house by treating them to satisfying feasts and relaxing staycations.
Here are some options:
MARCO POLO ORTIGAS
Marco Polo Ortigas Manila urges everyone to pay tribute to the family’s ‘hero’ via a culinary journey at Cucina, Lung Hin or Café Pronto as well as a rejuvenating massage.
