Valentine’s Day just went by. Like every other year, love filled the otherwise very stale and humid Singapore air. Guys with large flower bouquets in hand carried all sorts of expressions. There were some who appeared shy and embarrassed, and then there were others walking around with their heads held high, all dressed up and looking ready for a romantic night ahead. Girls and women, on the other hand, seemed to be playing their own game with a different set of rules. If you really look around at those carrying flowers (I presume from their boyfriends/husbands), you’ll actually notice how they take quick glances at bouquets carried by other girls, as if comparing others to their own. Nasty.
In one of my earlier posts, I think I painted a picture of how I was going to celebrate Valentine’s Day with my boyfriend this year.
I was supposed to have spent a very simple, no-frills Valentine’s Day with him. I wanted no gifts and no fancy dinner; I just wanted to spend it with him – nothing more. But we didn’t keep to that. Well, we did, but we kept to only one half of it.
No gifts were bought, so that’s the half. He did, however, surprise me with a relatively fancy dinner.
I quite like the ambience at the restaurant. We were seated at the inside corner of the restaurant, next to a glass window that presented us with a full view of the large waterfall feature just outside the hotel.
I’m still trying to understand how my boyfriend’s Canon 650D works. Sorry for the inconsistency in quality and lighting. Haha.
It’s a season of and for feasting. Valentine’s Day was right smack in the middle of Chinese New Year. Just had another 8 course reunion dinner last night. Still have one more to go on Thursday. I haven’t gotten the chance to start any diet plan ever since I got back from US. Arghhh…. Not good, not good.
