Valentine's Day



Valentine's Day is just 3 days' away. What have you planned?

Although it's not encouraged for Muslims to celebrate this day (that's as far as I've read and know-lah) but I'm sure at some point of our lives we cherished and looked forward to this day. It's as though it's THE-day for all dating couples, especially teenagers :)

But I never believed in all the expensive roses bought and sent on that day. For a start I'm not a flower-person (though I'd melt when someone gave them to me ;p) and I always thought that the exorbitant prices of flowers during V-day is just a waste of money! Especially when the flowers come in huge bouquets and can run up to hundreds of ringgit. Better use that money for a more everlasting gift. Diamonds/jewellery perhaps? (they appreciate in price too!) Diamonds are a girl's best friend, right? ;p

I also never believed in celebrating the occasion extravagantly on that day. Love can be expressed on any other day, right? and it should be the same throughout the lifetime. Plus restaurants take advantage of this overly-commercialised day and make consumers spend more. We used to celebrate it before the actual day. More like a reason just to have a huge, expensive meal for us!

This year? I'll be going outstation :( but nevertheless to us it's just another commercialised celebration, so it does not matter!

What do you have planned?

Actually we too won't be celebrating on the day itself, partly because it's a weekday. Thought of doing something on the weekend or maybe a few days after the event.
