Valentine Weekend

After his Saturday morning errands, PaPa came home with 3 stalks of roses for me although I've specifically told him not to.
Reasons being :
1. Extra expensive on V-day.
2. I have to dry them then figure out what to do with the dried flowers.
But since he was being extra sweet, I'd better quickly say "Thank You" and appreciate his thoughtfulness.

~ roses from my Valentine ~

We don't really celebrate Valentine's Day in a big way anymore. As time goes by, we put less and less emphasis on special dates. There are just too many to commemorate. And some are just too commercialised. As long as he remembers them, it's good enough for me. Don't have to shower me with gifts or flowers. But of course, some surprises thrown in once in awhile would definitely send me to cloud 9. :D

Hubby suggested we go for seafood dinner coz he knows I love crabs. We had dinner at a nearby Chinese restaurant and the highlights were cheese crabs (not very satisfactory - will stick to their sweet and sour crab next time) and tomyam prawns (cooked and served in a coconut shell and it's really yummy! *slurp*). Again, sorry for not taking any pictures coz I forgot when the food came. :p

Since we didn't go out on Saturday, we decided to go for a movie on Sunday as we've got free GSC tickets which will expire on Tuesday. We went for dim sum at Tai Thong restaurant in Cheras. Hubby said the food wasn't nice. For that kind of price, I'd say it's just so-so. Next stop, Midvalley Megamall. We have some time to shop around before the movie. Then "armed" with popcorns, drinks and nuggets, we watched The Wedding Game. It's a romantic comedy and I find it quite entertaining (I don't have high expectations) but hubby said it was boring. One thing for sure, it's not suitable for kids as there were some kissing and intimate scenes. It was very funny and embarrassing when XY went "haiyo...". hahaha

After the movie, we had a very late lunch (at 5 pm) at a mamak shop on the way home. Had to rush home coz the air-conditioner installers were coming. The unit in our room has broken down. We must be the unlucky few as it's only 3 years old. It costs a lot of replace the IC board and motor fan so we bought a new unit. Panasonic air-conds are quite reputable, no?

After some popcorn indulgence and being out almost the whole day (meaning no proper rest), didi started having fever early this morning. Coughing a little bit too. Sigh... jie jie has just recovered from fever, redthroat and slight cough. Now it's didi's turn. Luckily his fever's not very high - below 39ÂșC. And I'm so thankful force feeding medicine is a thing of the past. *phewww*

Everyday Healy said...

Yeah... I think as we get "matured", we prefer something solid rather than flowers. Ha! What a materialistic girl I am.LOL!

Somehow, it's still so sweet as long as he remember. :)

Get well soon, Didi.

It's really nice to celebrate V-day with all ur loved ones around and the flowers are surely a bonus! Just found out that next year's CNY falls on V day. XY is so cute...haiyo-yo...I realise our kids are starting to be aware of those scenes...hmm...

if u dun mind traveling a bit to maju junction, KL d chinese rest (think taithong related also) offers pretty good deal...30% disc on total bill (dimsum & oth dishes)...food was good to our std.
reason being bis was only good during workg days & during weekend, that place was quiet!!
