i’d be lying if i hadn’t thought about keeping things “simple” this year just because i was too lazy to think of something epic to do for Valentine’s day. hahaha in fact, 1 week ago, i still had no idea what i was going to come up with for feb 14th.
but then the lazy bum that i was decided to wake up my idea and trawl the net for some really good suggestions of what to do for valentine’s. the choice of search terms are very crucial of course. half an hour of research later searching “valentine’s day crafts”, i came across this brilliant website and knew that it was definitely what i had to do this year to make it special.
i LOVE presents!!!!! and while i love giving them, i enjoy receiving presents even more :P so i blatantly shared with jeremy the concept of gifts by the hour, hoping that he’d buy into it and we can have an enjoyable evening of present exchanging every hour!
the thing about vday by the hour is that the gifts don’t have to be extravagant at all. in fact, all my gifts are either handmade or cost less than $10.
the creator of this idea had gifts prepared every hour for the whole day! of course, 1 week was a little too tight to get started on 7 hours of presents, let alone 24. so we only started from 514pm (the time we met) until 1114pm.
let’s get the ball rolling with the pictures from today!
the most annoying thing about vday is the absolutely rip-off set meals they offer in restaurants on the day, and the fact that you’d have to make a reservation ages before or risk spending half your evening queueing up at a place that doesn’t take reservations.
so we stuck with our favourite jap restaurant of all time: Ichiban Boshi, and had their affordable Gyu Steak Gozen set meal ($25.90) which was more than enough to fill our stomachs the whole night despite having an early dinner.
no need for reservations, restaurant was quiet and peaceful, and the staff made miniature roses with crepe paper on toothpicks just for us!
i gave him a bunch of coupons to use! included things like “a free get-out-of-argument pass” and “permission to drag me to jog with you at ecp” hahaha
his present to me: intaxes of us taken earlier on in the day
and mine to him was a card to end the day off with a heartfelt message (:
such an eventful feb 14 this year! <3 thank you jeremy for making it so special :D
