Our First Valentine’s
Obligatory Valentine’s post because the boy pressured me to update my blog LOL. Sometimes i feel that he secretly (or shamelessly) likes to read my blogposts about him. Feel like a superstar huh, sayang? 😛
We celebrated a few days earlier because on the 9th is the only day we are free. And we had pre-planned activities for the day.
Started off with tenpura sushi for $1.50/piece and 2 to-go Starbucks cuppa. I ordered Caramel Machiatto but it tasted like Flat White and I don’t take Flat White. Was contemplating of changing it but i drank 1/4 already so i bitterly switched my drink with the bf’s. Felt guilty that he has to drink my shitty drink but since his go-to cuppa is always Flat White then i guess it’s okay?
After that, we went to watch…
My bestie warned me that it isn’t a good Valentine’s movie but i really really wana watch this so just wing it and we both like it very much. I was in awe of how pretty the movie is (pretty in an cinematic artistic sense) and true, there wasn’t a happy ever after but at least it has a happy ending. Not gonna say more but I’d urge you to go watch it!!
After that we went swimming/ chilling at the sauna & hot pool. Chill till we’re hungry and went for dins!
We almost couldn’t make it to our dinner because we arrived at Waxy O’ Shea’s at 8.45pm and the maître d’ had to go into the kitchen and ask the chef if the kitchen is still open. Luckily it was (phew!). If not, all my dressing up and make up efforts are wasted lor. At that time, I doubt other restaurant is still open so last resort is to eat Chinese takeaway from a box T3T
Still, thankful that that didn’t ruin our Valentine’s celebration.
For starters, we had Seafood Chowder.
It came in this huge ass bowl – sort of like the huge bowl used for tomyam soup at home. I was shocked to see how gigantic it is and was a little worried if we could finish it. And even if we could, we would be full and what about our mains then? Anyway, no time for negative thought. Just dig in!
Greedy me gulped a huge spoonful and it burnt my tongue but don’t care. It’s so creamy and delish! As I’m typing, i’m silently swallowing my saliva. Anyway, because of this yummy experience, the bf gasped excitedly whenever he sees seafood chowder in any cafe. Which is like… always. Haha.
Then came our mains.
The boy chose pork belly.
While i had the Surf & Turf.
In the end, we only finished the meat then doggy-bagged the rest. YES! LEFTOVER! I love leftover food!
Throughout the night, I sneakily asked about my presents. In the past, I was always good at finding loop hole until my ex would reluctantly spill the beans. But with Ozias leh… he is very smart at dodging the question. He is so good at changing topic i can’t even. He will keep avoiding answering my questions but i have the patience to repeat till I get what I want. And he came up with a ridiculous answer which was pfft.
After dinner & grocery, I continued asking him about my present.
Him: Neh the Loreal serum I bought you just now.
Me: Hah my present is only $20 ah?
Him: Wahhhhhhhh (in disbelief that I would say such thing)
Me: Hahaha no la kidding la.
Him: You sad ah your present so cheap?
Me: No la. I’ve always wanted it anyway… so thanks!
Then he asked me to boil the water. I begrudgingly do it while sighing “Haih, come back home still need to kerja (boil water)”
And I heard a very loud thump in the bedroom. And walah!
I squealed in delight but what made me super excited was the book. 50 Shades of Grey book! I asked him why he got me the pillow and his replied, “Because few weeks ago you complained about neck pain so bought you this.” Aww…. melt <3
Umm, wasn’t so happy with the chocs as i’m trying to be in shape BUT I’LL STILL TAKE IT! 😀
A close-up of the chocs.
It’s from The Seriously Good Chocolate Company!!! A couple of weeks ago we went there and check out the coffee but good job bf for thinking ahead of time and got me this. Haha.
The inside – only 9 pieces?! Why so luxurious 1?! I’m hesitant to eat it already. Can i keep it forever?
On the 14th, we popped this open. Although not my fav but still good enough. On the night itself he gave me a small card and i wrote him a letter to fulfill our “gift exchange” ritual LOL.
Now, you must be wondering where’s my present to him right? I am embarrassed to announce that… it is still in progress. I made this something something that requires me to be attentive and detailed oriented. It is so delicate that… it is a really time-consuming project. I reckon it will take another 60 hours to complete. From my rough estimation, a vertical line takes an hour to complete. Huge project with very fine details. Can’t reveal more. I promised the bf to claim it on the 14th March. Fingers crossed it will be done by then la hor.
Okies, thanks for reading. Hope you guys had a lovely Valentine’s Day with your other half and Happy CNY y’all!
