live, love, laugh. Just the way I like it.
Just a short one. I know most of us are probably cracking our brains on what to do this Valentine's Day, especially if you are working. The key to a great Valentine's day is to plan ahead. To some people, Valentine's day is just another day for an excuse to buy that lovely girl you've been crushing on roses or a box of chocolate. Cliche but sweet after all, who doesn't like gifts?
Ever since I started dating back when I was fifteen, I've only celebrated Vday single, once. Sure it's nice to mingle and party all night long, but I prefer the home cooked dinner, traditional cum lazy way of spending this romantic day. I remember that year, it felt weird not spending time with a "special" someone (hate how commercialized this has become) so me and a friend went grocery shopping and cooked a great meal that night. Purrfect.
Tips for this Valentine's day, single or attached:
#1 Road trip picnic
I think I smiled a lot more with my teeth back then. That reminds me, gotta get scaling done soon :D
Single or attached, it's fun to go on a road trip somewhere, even just for a day. Can't decide where to go? Grab a map of your current state, close your eyes and point at a spot on the map.
There you go, easy! Don't forget to bring some sandwiches if it's going to be a picnic :D
#2 Love & Other Drugs
I've watched this movie three times now and I still can't get enough of it!
Sometimes the things you want the most don't happen and what you least expect happens. I don't know - you meet thousands of people and none of them really touch you. And then you meet that one person and your life is changed (Love & Other Drugs, 2010).
I think this would be a good choice of film for Valentine's Day. Not your average cheesy love story.
#3 Host a party be it two person or MORE = S.A.D (Single Awareness Day)
#4 Do something you've always wanted to do but have no balls to! E.g. Ask that hot chick/dude out for dinner, or go on a blind date!
Work Book a suite at a hotel nearby and pretend like you're on holiday..somewhere =P
#6 Gift ideas? When it comes to gifts, I take forever to decide on one because men have such limited items to buy for! (Games, Wallet, Shirts, Watch, Sunnies, Pants, WHAT ELSE WHAT?!)
How about some e-love vouchers for him/her?
Make sure there's an expiry date.
#7 Good food
Note: Good food and expensive restaurants are two different things.
By the way, we had sumptous Japanese dinner last night @ Nihon Kai, Old Kland Road.
I'm a loyal fan of Sushi Zanmai but I think the food here is a lot better.
Look at how thick the sashimi is!
Their dinner set comes with Chawanmushi (steamed egg), miso soup, and your main course.

Taking some time off to rant my stress away but I'm really sleepy now,
why can't there be more than 24 hours a day? 8 hours of sleep, 8 hours of work and 8 hours of play? Not quite enough.
