And just like that, Valentine’s Day is over, as well as Chinese New Year. Well, that’s how fast so universe moves on. Anyway, my boyfriend’s family invited me for dinner on the fourteenth. His mom said they secured me so I don’t date other people. Hahaha. It sounded possessive but I was so overwhelmed of how much they like me. We went to a coffee shop after dinner and they took me home. I missed AJ even more. He would always drive me home and now going home alone is such a struggle for me.
So V-Day happened and someone just delivered me a bouquet of flowers. Wow! He makes things happen even if he’s far away. It was so sweet of him to take his whole family into helping him get flowers for me. I didn’t know until his mom told me the backstory. Very heartmelting and funny. I couldn’t be so much kilig.
What I did for my part was that I asked his friends there to get him a whole pizza. I couldn’t ask his friends to buy stuff for him because they were all so busy with their work. So I might just buy the gift here and find a way to send it to him. So yeah, that’s just how my day went. We also talked on the phone for quite long. Not much happened but still felt so much loved. I’m good with the phone call and a lovely bouquet of flowers. Oh, and by the way, the card? His mom wrote it.
If last year our Valentine’s Day was so perfectly planned, this year was kinda spur-of-the-moment. My original plan was to put a dozen of balloons inside his car with pictures or notes dangling on each flying balloon. It actually should be 14 supposedly but well, a dozen is only 12 and there’s no way I could change that. But what happened was so fail. I sabotaged his sister to help me with the set up. I was even on a leave on the 13th just to prepare everything. Monday came and the circumstances had gone cuh-ray-zeee! I wouldn’t tell the story anymore cos I was really disappointed. So the original plan was canceled on the list. Then I thought of just leaving the balloons together with my gift outside their condo on the 14th at early morning. But then again, fate wasn’t so good to me, I woke up late and I had to ran errands before going to work. Ended up I just handled him my gift in the office since we’re now working in the same company. Yay! Talk about perks of being officemates with your lover. if I had just arrived earlier than him, I could’ve placed the surprise on his table.
I knew he had something for me. I might sound too assuming but well, his surprises are never-ending even on normal days. What more on Valentine’s Day? Lol. Early in the morning, he dropped by at my cube with a bouquet of roses. I couldn’t react. I was so kilig I could’ve hugged him but office etiquettes, people. I don’t know but I just don’t get sick receiving flowers. They’re just so beautiful, they can brighten up my day for a week. Jokes. Okay for a month. Or maybe until I receive another flowers. Haha! Anyway, we ended the night with good food. Had dinner at some Chinese restaurant and went somewhere park-like to talk about how our day went. Then he drove me home at midnight but gave me a 500 gigabyte hard disk with movies before he went home. This guy is really practical. Always giving me things I could really use. Well, except for the flowers, of course. Last year he gave me a strolly bag for my travels. He never gave me chocolates or cake which are usually what girls get on V-Day. I told him not to give me sweets cos I sure won’t eat them. I would just stare at them until they melt.
We planned on continuing our Valentine’s celebration yesterday, Saturday. Go to Kartzone again and watch a movie after. But you won’t believe what just happened. I got my period last Friday so I couldn’t drive the go kart. The weather’s too sunny, my monthly visitor wouldn’t like it. Anyhow, we had lunch at some place called Snakyard. It’s actually our first time trying there. I suggested the place since I’ve read some good reviews ‘bout it. And the food was really good. The place isn’t that really big though. Their space is a bit tiny but it will do. I’m glad my boyfriend wasn’t disappointed with the food. Y’know he’s too picky when it comes to his appetite and he would seriously complain. That cute chubby boy!
