It's the eve of Valentine's Day and life is normal with a capital N. We've got no grand plans or romantic getaway to escape to. In fact, it has been this way for several years now. We're just not into paying exorbitant prices for flowers, candle light dinners and big gestures.
Okay, I admit I was more into it when we first started dating. Ah, those were the heady days of love. I remember buying a gift and making a scrap book for CH and he gave me something and brought me somewhere for dinner. Gosh, that sounds so long ago. I can't even remember where we went or what we ate now. But you see the point?
At some point, we have to descend from cloud 9 and return to reality. I do agree it is an important phase of love that is powerful, intense and keeps our species procreating. But of course for practical reasons, we cannot sustain that intense emotion over a long period of time.
Can you imagine if everyone's only thinking about romance and procreation, who's going to do any work or look after the kids? Or an entire nation of the young and old are out celebrating Valentine's Day? Gee.
Still, every girl (from the young to the very old) secretly hopes to be treated with tender loving care and adoration on Valentine's Day. I always say this is nothing but a hyped-up day but I've yet to find out if I'll be so nonchalant if I were neglected by CH. So far it hasn't happened yet.
In fact, he has bought tickets for us to catch DARK KNUT : WELCOME TO AVENUE QUANTUM - parody sketches, spoof songs and countless moments of sheer comic ecstasy, delivered with a uniquely Singaporean twist and a lot of naughtiness.
We'll probably be laughing so much we forget all about Valentine's Day. Thanks CH, you're a sweetheart.
