As much as I hate to think that Valentine’s Day has always been overrated and commercialised, I still long for the days in my youth when I received all these cute cards, notes and bunches of flowers from admirers. It has been years since I received any of this, except from Lyn who would, for every Valentine’s Day, diligently draw red hearts on her coloured paper and placing it on my pillow. I, in return would give her chocolates or would take her out for a nice dinner.
Not anymore, at least not this year. She has a boyfriend now and they have their own plans this evening. So, what is there for me to do this evening? I have no idea. No husband, no dates, and no boyfriend…
A few friends sent me Valentine’s wishes via the email, IM’s and SMS which were lovely. My special thanks goes to Mikey my Jamaican friend who sent my very first wishes. Thanks Mike! Not sure how you say it in Jamaican but I can imagine being serenaded by the beach and eating fried conch! 😉
Oh well, doesnt matter. Perhaps I would head towards Souled-Out in Hartamas, enjoy a bowl of pasta and just enjoy the evening away, just like any other evenings.
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
