Like St. Valentine,

Photobucket

sean and i celebrated our first valentine's day this year, had to celebrate it the weekend before monday since he wasn't planning on being around on monday. he had to be at camp (he told me that! haha my boyf's a liar oh oh oh) but it turns out he gave me a surprise on monday itself hehe he knew i liked surprises :') but in other words, i'm easily tricked.
i apologise for blogging close to a week late after v day itself, but i cannot skip over valentine's day post especially because i had such a nice one this year. i kinda miss sa's celebration though, all that writing little notes to the classmates, hand made gifts, candies and what not. and the ongoing activities in school. so much fun!! well then, it never held much significance for me, romance wise, for two years i s'pose. i know many despised valentine's day, and think that feb 14 is nothing more than a commercialized day, or the entire idea is meaningless since 'everyday is valentine's day with you'. it's true, to a minimal extent. i'd like the idea of making the person you love happy, feeling special altogether. it doesnt have to be romance wise, it's a day to recognize someone important in your life. i mean i know you have to, every other day, but how do i put it? uh dont want to sound cliche, but i think thought still matters, so fuck the cost. just make your loved ones happy.

like any other girls, i spent many hours, in fact, weeks, in brainstorming sessions and i still find it tough to decide on what gift for sean, we exchange gifts every month and... i've ran out of ideas. i got him a vans tee shirt in the end, and a box of something(as seen in the picture, i blurred it because the bf says not to reveal) and clubbed the gifts with a handmade card, as well as some heart shaped short bread cookies! i suck with the icing, made one whole lot of it and it didnt turn out well, threw it all away. ended up melting some chocolate and coated it on instead.

sean stenciled my name on the box!! he's really creative when it come to handmade presents. he knew that i liked handmade stuff more than anything.. in the box was two dresses from tracyeinny, as well as his cutesy little stuffed toy, mooty the cow(i used to call it moomoo until i realise there's a tag, and his name's actually mooty lol) that i've been eyeing on since forever. there was even a message from mooty himself, hehe asking me to take good care of him. awwww too cute, of cos i will!

fast forward to that evening, the boy reserved a table for two at min jiang, goodwood park hotel. it was my first trip to min jiang btw, i've heard so much about it so i was pretty excited! i like the fact that we get to dine outdoor, love the alfresco concept where the dining terraace is just next to the hotel's pool. the boy said he'd prefer in door though (air conditioned that's why), i liked it this way! wont be too cold either. overall, the ambience was pleasant and soothing.

it was a seven-course chinese cuisine. i love the idea, it's pretty unique isnt it. so different, unlike the usuals.... we had lo hei, just the two of us! it was pretty hilarious..... hahaha and obviously we couldnt finish the whole plate of it, especially when i only pick out salmon and crackers. poor sean he actually tried to conquer it, but we ended up throwing more than half a plate away. my favorites are the shark fin's soup, and that prawn dish. the prawns were amazingly big and fresh!

the usual camwhorish me. btw, i love my dress! i got it just two days before the dinner, at first day. and for my hair, i did it early in the morning(lots of hairspray at the back) with the help from youtube gurus.
hairspray works wonders.

i wanted a picture together at the stairs because of....yeah the red carpet. felt like a star huh LOL
we caught black swan in the theatres before making pictures outside sota, next to the cathay. i feel that it's important and is a must to make pictures for keepsake purposes.... and especially on special occasions like this, where both of us were dressed up. well it seems like we take pictures every date out, but nah it's so not true hehe ^^
