Celebrating Valentine’s Day In A Simplistic Way [2012]

Hello Everyone,

today’s Valentine’s Day and so here’s wishing all of you readers a Happy Valentine’s Day!

Well, Valentine’s Day in Singapore is usually very commercialised because you will see the prices of roses going up and you will more often than not come across many restaurants whom want to capitalise on this opportunity to earn some extra profits with their “Special” Valentine’s Day Menu.

As for Baby and I, we both celebrated Valentine’s Day with a simple dinner at Popeye’s @ Punggol East! Ok, the thing is this, although Valentine’s Day is just once a year, we didn’t want to spend so much money on just this day alone because we would rather spend it over the weekends where we could have more time with one another. Moreover, the Popeye’s food voucher that we brought from Groupon can still be used so we thought why not just utilise it on this day?

Well, in total, we spent less than $15 for this entire meal!

The Chicken Tenders is a way tad too salty! I didn’t really fancy it and after eating too much chicken for a day, I think I am going to abstain myself from chicken for a few weeks.

The Mashed Potato with its Gravy Sauce tasted perfect. In fact, I like the gravy alot and the mashed potato was not too soft and neither is it too hard either. The texture was just right.

One of Popeye’s Signature Sides, the Corn! Well, when I dipped my spoon in and scooped some corns to eat, there was already a buttery taste and upon biting the corns, the sweet juices of the corn just oozes out. Way much better than the corn at MacDonalds.

And as for the gifts that I got for Baby…

Well, I gotten a stuffed toy from CNS for her. And while on the way to Popeye’s, she took the stuffed toy out and displayed it at the dashboard of my car.

And Baby made me chew this white chocolate with the words, “Happy Valentine’s” just so that she could snap a picture of me.

Oh, and did I mention? Baby loved the stuffed toy so much that she put it into her handbag with its head popping out. Machiam like bringing a dog out for a walk.

So yes, this was how we celebrated our Valentine’s Day this year and no, I didn’t spend a bomb because when you truly love someone and wishes to bless them, it really doesn’t matter how much those things cost; rather, what is most important is the thought that goes along with it! As the saying goes, you can give without loving but you can’t love without giving.

Once again, Happy Valentine’s Day and stay tuned for more updates from us!

God Bless!
