It's all started from 10 years ago...

Today is Valentine's Day. Valentine's Day brings me lots of memory, both good and bad.

10 years ago (Wow time flies, I feel that I'm so old now! LOL!), hb and I went out for the first time on Valentine's Day. It was my very first so-call Valentine's Set Dinner at a hotel, together with another couple. And that was also the only Valentine's set meal that I ever have. And coincidence, the other couple and we get married on the same year and same month.

3 years later, on V-day too, hb and I registered with the Registrar of Marriage at Thean Hou Temple. We paid RM150 for the group registration.

Few years back, our relationship was at a very rocky state. It happened right before the Valentine's day. So the V-day of that year brought me lots of pain. But eventually we have survived.

Can't remember is it last year or 2 years ago, we had the worst V-day meal. It was a working day. Both kids were with us. We did not particularly go for anywhere for the celebration. We wanted to dine at the western restaurant near our house, but it was fully pack. Both of us did not like to wait long for the food. So we went to another restaurant, serving western food too for our dinner. We have been to that restaurant few times only. Usually this restaurant had very few patrons, as the food were so-so only. But that night, the food was terrible. Hb and I swear that we won't go back there again. And not too long after that, the restaurant closed down.

This year, earlier I was thinking where should we go to dine for the V-day, and was hinting hb I have not received V-day gift for many years. However something unexpected came up last week making us on a very tight budget. We decided not to buy any V-day gift. Tonight follow the usual schedule; we will be having dinner at my parents' house. So it will be just another normal day for us. But more important is we are still loving to each other, we still care for each other, raise our 2 kids together. Nonetheless, we still wish each other

Happy Valentine's Day!

V-Day is not all about fancy dinner at restaurant or expensive gifts. It's the thought that counts. Ya ya...i know it sounds corny..but a sundae at McD and a stroll at the park can also be very romantic

Small Kucing - Totally agree with you and been practicing that too. But always "sundae at McD", once a while going for something fancy make us feel good. And to me, V-day is just an "excuse" for it. Else normal days, we will hardly think of want to eat something good. :)

In my opinion, Valentine's day should be celebrated everyday...Feb 14 is a date for commercialism... Don't you agree? Happy belated Anniversary to you, Chee Yee:)

Alice Law - Wah so romantic and thoughtful! That's the best Valentine's gift that cannot be bought any where else. LOL!


Eugene - Thanks. I hope so. :)


prince n princess mum - :)

Olive - Hahaha we won't stop loving each other even if it is not Valentine's day. Whether it is for commercialism or not, I think at least it gives me an excuse to go eat something different. Just an extra day to celebrate besides the birthday. As other days, we are very much stick to the schedule. :)
