I know, I know, it's been two days already. Still, I would like to share how we spent that day.
So much for not celebrating Valentine’s Day.
Well, technically we didn’t, because my definition of V-Day celebration is to really splurge on expensive gifts and a lovely candlelight dinner followed by you-know-what.
The plan was to have dinner and then go for a movie at Midvalley. As soon as I stepped foot inside the largest shopping mall in Malaysia, I could feel the lovey-dovey-ness of couples everywhere. The girls would be carrying a stalk (cheapskate!) or two or a bouquet of roses (my boyfriend loves me so much!).
Many of them were also in matching colour shirts (pink was very popular) or worse, in identical T-shirts!
I wanted to go to Manhattan Fish Market for dinner, but they didn’t serve any ala-carte dishes. Obviously cashing in on love, its image in my eyes has somewhat dropped.
The waitress said, “No sir, no ala-carte on Valentine’s Day. What we have is only Valentine’s dinner set, costing MYR49.90++ per person.”
To that I said, no thank you. We’ll be on our way.
We had Japanese food instead, which came up to less than RM50. For the both of us.
For movies, we watched Prime. It was quite good and hilarious, about a 37 year old divorcee who likes a 23 year old artist. CF enjoyed the movie a lot, judging from his laughter.
Meryl Streep is excellent, as always. Uma Thurman is pretty and the male lead, Bryan Greenberg is absolutely yummy. Especially how he looked in the movie, when he got out bed ….
Greenberg was voted one of the top 10 sexiest men on Gaywired, which I agree.
After the movie, we walked around a bit, window shopping. It was about nine o’clock, and the mall was teeming with couples. Definitely more people than a normal weekday.
Only now it struck me what would the other young and old, teen and adult patrons think. CF and I were amongst the very few male-male pairs (there were others, but of course we were overwhelmed by the straight ones) on Valentines Day.
We were being touchy-feely and arms-over-shoulders a lot, but I think most of them were too busy looking into each other’s eyes to even notice the people around them.
Including us actually. ;P
