I have never celebrated Valentine’s Day. For one, there was no one to celebrate with. And even when I did have, he wasn’t around.
Even though I am attached now, I don’t plan to do anything special this year. Why spoil a 24 year old record of no celebration, right?
I really don’t see the point of doing something when almost everyone else is doing it. It’s not like me to jump on the bandwagon
Which reminds me of what happened last year during my birthday.
A small group of us were at Chilli’s in Midvalley to celebrate. It was quite packed for a weekday (it was a Thursday). On that day, I distinctly remember at least five other tables where the happy birthday song was sung.
Heck, a friend of mine from high school who shares the same birthday as me, was even sitting with his girlfriend right at the next table!
And I thought I was special and unique and fabulous.
Oh wait. I am actually. But on that day, my sense of individuality took a slight dip.
Never mind, that was last year anyways.
Not to say that I don’t believe in love or the celebration of it, but in this day and age, it has become waaaay too commercialized and very pop culture.
I would rather celebrate and spend time and effort for days which are more meaningful, like CF’s birthday and our anniversary.
Still, I am a romantic at heart and I do celebrate in spirit, which is why I am wearing a pink work shirt now with a matching maroonish tie.
Happy Valentine’s Day all!
P/S Not trying to rub it in or anything, but even though romance is not in your life now, it will be. Not today, but it could be tomorrow. As they say, it may take a long for him to appear in your life so that you would appreciate it when he does. In the meantime, enjoy being single and being surrounded by family and friends.
