Since 2-3 years ago, i have already decided & conveyed to huby my decision of abolishing the celebration for Valentine's Day! Over the years after marriage & in particular after having children, the mounting of celebrations were slowly but obviously felt and we began to feel the taxing of keeping the celebrations on-going........
wedding anniversary.....3 birthdays.....mom's birthday.....dad's birthday.....mother's day.....father's day.....christmas.....CNY.....aren't that enough to torture your earnings?
As much as i would like to acknowledge the importance of these dates, i can't deny the fact that they are all cash-consumption events thus they should be kept reasonably & valid. So to me.... probably due to catching-up of the age, Valentine's is now meant for young & unmarried couple where the love was still hot burning in the air!! Well, safe for me to say that i don't feel it as meaningful & as important as back then.....
But now can u imagine a 30 somethg woman receiving a valentine's gift from a 40 years... old man, cute hor??!!
I no longer expect my huby to remember this date which i have already mentioned to him years ago BUT maybe being a FORGETFUL person he used to be and could it be due to his recent 'wrong-doings'.....he SURPRISED me with a little gift full of thoughtfulness !! Still hard to believe this.........hahaha. No wonder yesterday night before we retired, he greeted me happy valentine's day while i was still as 'sotong'/blur as ever !!
It was cheap and yet it managed to lit up the light of our marriage....so no harm doing it & surprise your love ones.....thou only once in a blue moon!! And it happened to be something i reckoned very suitable to our home.....though the handwritten card.....oh no it was 'A4 paper' was errr....., ahhh....., don't want say lah!
Love it so much...thanks dear !!
Happy Valentine's Day !!
