Valentine’s Day is possibly the most commercialized day ever. Large displays of affections, flowers and red hearts everywhere. Most people choose rather to stay at home to avoid the many couples along the streets holding hands and girls holding bouquets of flowers. I guess it’s safe to say that this day would be the best if you are attached (and if your other half buys into the whole idea of celebrating Valentine’s) or the worst if you are alone because society tends to rub salt into that wound a little more on February fourteenth.
For me, the best Valentine’s days were back in school. Rushing to Far East Flora after school the day before to buy flowers and staying up till the wee hours of the morning that night to churn out home-made cards for your friends. Receiving stalks of roses and chocolates the next day and going home with a big plastic bag of assorted red. Feeling all warm and fuzzy inside as you read through the sweet and funny personal messages that your friends wrote for you. Yes my favourite Valentine’s days were in IJ and college.
This year, I celebrated Valentine’s Day with my family at The ART and it could not have been more meaningful especially with Fenny’s birthday falling on the same day. As mentioned in my earlier post, the evening was a 4-course Set Dinner Menu at $40 nett per person.
