Valentine With The Significant Other

I used to discriminate against Valentine’s Day because my Hubby won’t buy me flowers they are over rated .  But come to think of it, over the years, Hubby and me used to dine out during Valentine’s Day. To me, Valentine’s mean nothing but a normal day with the excuses to eat-out.  We don’t have to go lovey-dovey and confess all the sweet nothing to each other on that miserable day.  We have 365 days to do that.  To say that we don’t celebrate Valentine is an understatement.  We just did not do it big.  If I am in the mood, I will get him a gift.  If not, there will be nothing.  And heck, I’ve been buying him something on and off and I don’t see why gifts have to be present on that particular day only.  That goes the same for my Significant other and I don’t expect a V-Day gifts at all.

Do you think woman that doesn’t like flower is not romantic?  Yea, that is me.  I rather have the cash anytime and since Hubby and me are on the same frequency, we click! Hehehe!  Few years ago, I did get a stalk of rose.  And you think Hubby is romantic that year? Nah!  He was having lunch in a kopitiam (coffeeshop) and was approached by some youngsters selling roses for charity.  RM10 for a stalk of rose – I think that is the standard price during V-Day.  And till today, I still tease him about that as if I am his charity case.

So, how did we celebrate V-Day this year?  Like I’ve said, it is merely an excuses for us to eat out.  We dined at our favourite eatery with the kids and avoided ordering their love bird’s set course dinner.  See, told you we discriminate against V-Day :p .  As for the gift, I get him nothing cos I know he got me nothing too. LOL!  But wait, that is no the end.  Sometime during the afternoon, a car salesman came to look for me in my office with a paper for me to sign.  I thought it was a prank but he said, “Mr Neo ask you to sign on the dotted line for the purchase of new car.”  And I go, “Say what!”  It took me one whole day to recover from the shock.  Since he bought me a gift, maybe I should buy him something too.  What about I pay for the car insurance?  Gonna decide that later by checking auto insurance reviews.

And this funny thing happened after our dinner.  While walking back to our car, we spotted this young couple.  The lady was clutching a large bouquet of flower in her arm like a baby and instructed her boyfriend to take a photo of her.  That is so cheesy!  So I nudge Hubby and with my puppy eye and pouty mouth, and decided to tease him, “Daaadddy…..” (still pout-pout a bit).  Daughter was laughing as she know what is coming as I’ve told her the story of “charity-rose”.  Hubby whipped out his camera (phone), “You go borrow the flowers from her la.”
