Happy V-day :-)

It’s V-day, love and romance is in the air. I can’t wait to see what surprises my dear friends will receive. If I were a guy, I would definitely be able to make my girl happy, touched and love me very much. Ha, having said this, I remember AZ told me when we were in Sec 5, that if she were a guy, she knew what I want and she sure managed to court me.

One colleague who is married to her childhood sweetheart, in her slightly past 35 I guess told me that old couple, will spend time at home, watching DVDs. Her hubby said eating in restaurants on V-day is expensive. But just now, her hubby actually had 3 dozens of roses delivered to office! Gosh, this is what we call, least expected. :-)

YJ, was once again, disappointed with K yesterday because of his always-busy-and-I-tried-hard-to-meet-you attitude. She told me they have been bickering these few days that it is almost impossible to have romantic day tomorrow. And last I heard K has parade at 6pm, making it even impossible to meet her for surprise. So, he “made effort” to meet her on eve of V-day. YJ is a drop dead romantic girl, and I can fully understand her need to be pampered once in a while. This morning, K surprisingly gave her a surprise, he went to YJ's house early morning, gave YJ a bouquet of rose to make up for his absence tonight and sent her to work. Wow, another happy surprise. :-)

ZL’s boyfriend came with a few friends the other day. They sang at the reception area, then her boyfriend gave her a bouquet of rose and kissed her. Ha, you are right, what, in the office? Well, young couple with youth and energy.

R called last week, telling me his wife told him that she wants a break, would like to have some time off their marriage. I guess it was because his wife was under exam stress. He was very worried, asked me what to do. What can I say to such important matter? It’s the marriage we are talking about you know. I could only pray for their well being.

R just called again. He said his wife finished exam and he is buying her a hand phone as V-day gift. Honestly, he has been buying new gadget for her every year. For the first year I know him, he bought a hand phone for her, the next year, he bought her a laptop. This is the third year, and he is buying her another hand phone.

That day when I was having lunch with my colleagues, we were talking yet about the same topic, V-day.

What are you going to buy for your wife?” JL was asked.
Nothing” he answered.
How about you?” DW’s turn.
Not sure yet, depend on what she buys for me” he replied.

Then the table turned to me “if your better half didn’t buy you anything, would you be angry?

Well, when I was with my just-turned-ex boyfriend, he didn’t buy anything for V-day, B-day, Anniversary or X’mas” I answered.

But you’ve got such a big bouquet of flower on your birthday last year!
Yes, going to sound unfair, but I got that bouquet of flower because I threw tantrum! Not because he was romantic or anything” I explained.

It’s really funny, when I was with B, I had this expectation or hope that he’ll make some effort to celebrate with me. But as of now, I hope my friends around me get surprises from their better half so that they are happy. I am happy by myself, I have even bought a box of Andes mint chocolates so I can make everyone happy. (I hope I am generous enough to get a stalk of rose for each of the girls in the office, but would I be a bit too extreme?)

To those in love out there, may you guys treasure your loved ones as if everyday is V-day. Happy V-day, muuuaaacks!
