St. Valentine’s Day

Others may find Valentine’s Day annoying, boring and “baduy”, maybe I thought of it the same way in the past especially during my unmarried years but as I come to age I realized it may not be as important as Christmases less the trimmings and the lavish gifts but it’s significant in its own. VDay is a day of love, a celebration of the hearts. Though it may sound perfect only for couples, you can actually come up with your very own unique Vday that is inspiring and remarkable.

I remember my early 20’s, lovelife was cold as beer zero but I have a bunch of friends to celebrate Vday itself. We would partied hard every Feb 14, we would bar hopped like there’s no tomorrow, we’re each other’s Valentino. And I don’t mind if the crush of my life was dating someone over, hahaha. I know we’re all a little weird then and life is a little weird too. When we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness that is. I miss my V dates, I miss the Gs, I miss the girls, I miss the rest of the P-Boys, I miss Congo Grill, I miss Gerry’s Grill, I miss our stints at Kampo in West Ave., I miss the road trips. Vday may not be the same for us but that won’t keep me from making merry on this lovely occasion. 🙂

My other half had been my Valentino for the past 8 years and I look forward sharing all future VDays with him. We don’t celebrate it grandiose, he don’t go over the traditional flowers and chocolates, we don’t go on a fancy date on a fancy restaurant, we don’t splurge in short but despite the scarcity of those we find time to sit down, have a decent meal and spend time. And I can only wish we have B around to celebrate this love day.

Later we have no real plans, and I might visit the nail salon first before going home, I have a party to attend tomorrow. I’m planning to bring home some take outs, unless some last minute changes happen our V-date would be in front of our old TV set watching our most-awaited teleseryes. For the younger folks, bring it on and go on a date, “Dance like nobody’s watching; love like you’ve never been hurt. Sing like nobody’s listening; live like it’s heaven on earth.”

By the way, I brought a tray of spaghetti at the office earlier. I told them it’s my little treat packed with my labor of love thingy. And oh I went at the office in red today, even asked my colleagues to go with the same. 🙂

   Love puts the fun in together, the sad in apart, and the joy in a heart.  ~Anon.

Happy Heart’s Day folks! 😛
