Dads are different; they can be funny sometimes.
Generally not as vocal about telling their families – devoted wives included – about how much they care, they resort to other means of communicating the love thatâ€™s definitely there, albeit obscured in fatherly awkwardness.
Sometimes they surprise you with the new gadget youâ€™ve ogled countless times on Sunday window shopping, and other times, they gently offer to be your personal chauffeur for this weekendâ€™s party to save you (and your outfit) the hassles of commuting.
Donâ€™t expect hugs, kisses and displays of TLC from them, but know that you can always count on dad to be dependable, even in hisÂ silence.
Donâ€™t wait for him to speak up; make the first move and show himÂ how much he means to you this Fatherâ€™s Day with Novotelâ€™s guaranteed dad-friendly activities this June.

Start by getting him season passes for the UEFA playoffs to be aired live at The 6th – Novotelâ€™s Pool Bar and Lounge. Score goals from June 10-12 with the experience that also features European bar chow that comes complete with hearty snacks and beers (think German fried pork knuckle, meaty sliders and imported beers!).
If dadâ€™s into the classics, then heÂ should definitely visitÂ Food Exchange Manila where itâ€™ll be a fiesta for the whole family with Pinoy favorites like caldereta, kare-kare and lechon alongside international selections for more adventurous palates, also fromÂ June 10-12.
You can also helpÂ dad out with his attempts at romance with mom and suggest the Novotel + Araneta Center package that gives them a hotel stay with tickets of their choice to the coming Brian McKnight (June 17-18) and Culture Club (June 20) concerts this month.
But if dadâ€™s finally ready to let loose and let the entireÂ brood know that he really does love them, then the overnight family package thatâ€™s full of freebies and discounts for the love of his life and the kids will surelyÂ hit home.
