Valentine's Day

Yesterday I woke up to the sound of someone banging on our door. When my flatmate informed me that there’s an Island Rose delivery outside for me, I was genuinely surprised. I had thought such sweet gestures would stop when we got married. But apparently my hubby is just inherently romantic. Truly, lucky me :)

I really do hope it would be his last purchase with Island Rose. Not because I am dissatisfied with their merchandise, it is because it would mean that next Valentines I get to finally celebrate it the proper way. With him. Now where the h**l is my visa?!

Fortunately my flatmate is also alone yesterday (her fiancé works in Singapore) so I had someone to celebrate Valentines with. We enjoyed a lovely dinner at Dome Shangri-la, where we ordered the works – pasta, cake (1 for each! I reckon every girl has a license to overeat on Valentines), coffee and a bottle of wine. After that we then headed, a bit more giggly than usual (thanks to the wine), to watch the it movie this Valentines, the creatively titled (what else?) Valentine’s Day.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.

Valentine’s Day is the American version of Love, Actually. Although the latter is still way better than the former in my humble opinion, Valentine’s Day did not disappoint me. Its A-List cast, which includes Julia Roberts, Ashton Kutcher, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Garner, Anne Hathaway, McDreamy, etc., is enough to delight me. The multifarious plot lines satisfactorily come together and get closure in the end. Though I hate that Bradley Cooper's character is gay (and I must say after leading me to believe he would end up with Julia Roberts' character plus of course he's sinfully cute, it’s downright cruel!), it is a pleasant twist that the Pretty Woman herself aside from being a tough Army captain doesn't need a requisite leading man to get her happy ending. It is a feel good date movie. Definitely not a waste of money.

P.S. Oh by they way, belated Happy Valentines to all! Hope you had a wonderful day yesterday :)
