Valentine's Day

Despite of the no. of times the media had "reminded" that Valentine's day is not a day to be celebrated by Muslims, yet flipping the newspaper these few days... I saw tons and tons of advertisements from the restaurants, florists, goldsmiths and hotels!

Hah,

The harder you hit the ball, the higher it bounces.


For all the single ones out there,
The best way to celebrate Valentine's Day is by having a great meal with your single friends and curse all the lovey-dovey couples passing by guessing how long they can last.

Okay, I'm just kidding.

And, Nonnie's definition for Valentine's Day



(For ladies)


- The day to show their "market value" to the whole world.

- The day they daydream so much thinking what would they received, e.g. the no. of flowers and the carats of the diamonds and from who.

- The day they can show off how caring, how rich, how handsome, how whatever their boyfriends or husbands are.

- The day they get so disappointed by the yellow or white chrysanthemum or plastic diamonates sent by their other half and later threaten to break up if they don't see a big bouquet of red roses or huge diamonds in the next 2 hours.

- The day they spend hours in front of the mirror wearing the 1" thick make-up, used up half a bottle of hair gel and spray litres of perfume.
(And if they're unlucky, maybe late for the dinner or what... she'll end up looking like a peacock/ xmas tree kana people stared in Mamak Stall. Or, if it rains.... Muahahahaa, you imagine yourself lah)



(For guys)


- The day that florists slash their throat by jacking up the price of stupid roses and all other flowers except the one Chinese use for "pai-pai" so sky high but yet they still got to buy it to show their token of love.

(And curse the idiot who invented the flower-giving thingie)

- The day they might get scolded, or even worse... lose a lover if they bought the wrong thing.

- The day they spend hours stuck in a stupid traffic jam, and another hour just to find a stupid parking!

(and in the end, the restaurant tutup already and they ended up eating pasar malam food, Good also.. cheap and nice)

- The day they spend another hour to have a candle light dinner that cutting the goddamn hard-like-rock steak (yet still have to act gentleman trying not using the best utensils, a.k.a hand to eat), pay so much extra just for ONE STALK of stupid rose and the so-call special gift.

Worse, the dinner's not even filling. End up cooking Maggie at home later.

- The day they have to spend so much money just to give their girlfriends or wives face to show off in front of her friends and colleagues.

- The day they can get free sex (if they're lucky) <- The only thing that makes guy like it I guess?

Oh dear, I'm sounded so UNROMANTIC!!!

What I said is just for fun nya la... You can laugh at it, or exit my blog if you want.


The fact is, sometimes I don't understand why is Valentine's Day so over-rated.

I mean, ya, it is a day for love birds to celebrate or a good timing to express your love towards someone but...

isn't everyday spent with your love one also a day worth celebrating too?


You might disagree with me saying, "Eh paloi, different lah. Normal days where got so much feel compare to V-day?"

For me, every moment spend with Bobby has a lot of "feel" and is enjoyable and memorable (if we're not having any fight that day it is)

Why would I want to wait till 14th February just to show him how much I love him? I can tell him that any time I like/want what.

And, Valentine's day got a lot feel because of the love songs that radio play continuously, the restaurants, florists, and goldsmith having their ads in the newspaper boosting the "feel" and the pretty girl sat next to you keep on telling you how she's going to celebrate it with her boyfriend and how many roses she received last year.

Take away all those, what is the difference between February 14 and all the other 364 days?

God, I sound like an angry woman who just got dumped by an ugly guy.

Bobby and I had a great fight and we're not talking to each other... And I'm mad now!

Gotcha! Hahhaaa. For a moment you're worried for me right? I do hope so. Proves that you really care for me.

No lah, nothing happen between us la. Just pulling your legs nya.

But sadly, we're not seeing each other today since he's going to Miri with his dad.

Nevermind, we already had an advanced celebration on his birthday, and we're meeting up each other tomorrow and celebrating it belated.

Okie people, I got to go back to my card. Still have a little bit of touch up to be done.

But I can give you guys a sneak peek first.

*ta da*



(Sorry, I have to blur it just in case Bobby happens to browse my blog later)


We're not getting each other anything this year. Only a hand-made card.

But I think it's sweet enough since I know not a lot of guys bother to make anything with their own hands for their loves one.


Lastly,


HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!





p/s: Remember to get some "protection" if you're still not ready to be a mother/father/murderer.

lunaticgal said...

ingsiang: Wow~ so nice the sofa -.-

Sha said...

Actually, I think Vday is alright. Everyone may claim that it's a commercialized piece of crap, but let's face it- every girl wants that bit of extra attention on a very commercialized day! lol.. As long as it's kept nice and sweet and nothing naughty, I think Vday is okay :)

Horny Ang Moh said...

HA!HA! NONE OF THE THINGS U MENTION ABOUT GUY ON VAL DAY APPLYED TO ME. I AM DIFFERENT, I AM 'HOR NY ANG MOH' SOMEONE SPECIAL'S/EVERYONE'S SPECIAL, I JUST PRESENT MYSELF 2 HER LOH!!! (IN MINE BIRTHDAY SUITE!!!).
BTW IT IS NOMAL FOR LOVER TO QURREL/FIGHT ONCE IN A WHILE. ITS STRENGHTEN THEIR LOVE, JUST LIKE WE FEEL SICK ONCE IN A WHILE, ITS STRENGHTEN OUR BODY DEFENCE SYSTEM.

Nonnie King said...

Sha : Ya, as long as it's kept nice sweet and nothing naughty.. Ok... maybe get a little naughty just to spice things up lah.

HORNY ANG MOH : YOU'RE SO LUCKY. CHEH... GIVE YOURSELF TO HER, NOT SINCERE AT ALL PUN... YOU DON'T EVEN SPEND A SINGLE CENT.

Iwan Sanchez said...

muahahahahahaha!!!

u too ok...

just kidding!!

i hope u have a great time!!!

rebelandaliberator said...

it is kinda over-rated, obviously the commercialisation of this hallmark holiday has something to do with it.. but then again, if i wasn't so single i wouldn't mind going out and getting a little something for that someone..

ps. naughty is good. ;)

LuUeE said...

Happy Valentines day to you Nonnie,
Hhaha.. Anyways, the last line, you talked about the protection.. What r we talking bout? I don understand.

Hai. ya The retailers are really smart, jacking up at price of a candy marking it up by 300 percent for a thing which is only 1.99.

People like me so smart. Don't celebrate Valentine's day on that day, but on another day. So more special. Mwhhaa..

Nonnie King said...

Iwan : *Blehz*
You have a great time in Oz too yah!


Rebbe : No target now kan? Or you're just having high expectations?
Naughty is good when there's someone to naughty with. *double winkz*


Luuee : Don't understand ah? Oh..Wait till you grow older then Jie jie tell you ah. Kuai~
