Roses, kisses and love-hearts. The day, also know known as St. Valentine’s Day, is a day on which people all around the world celebrate and express their love for one another.
I have never been huge on the whole affair probably because I like to think that every day is special with my loved one. I make the most of every moment I have with him (or I try to at least!) I still buy chocolates as a little token for all my close girlfriends and to show some love.
I do feel that Valentine’s Day is a bit commercial and a money-making gimmick to some extent but I like the sentiment behind the historical significance of this day of love.
This year, I will be away from my own lover, Mr. SbS as I’m currently in Malaysia while he’s in Australia. Ah well, tis life. For now it’s Skype date and we will catch up on the V-day when we see each other soon.
For those of that want to do something out of the norm and stay home instead with a lovely home-cooked meal, popcorn and curl up on the couch with one of these movie picks from me.
With your lover
When Harry met Sally
I love re-watching this one and it’s funny with Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan. A love story that takes places over many years and a couple development over time, the essence of true everlasting love.
Need I say more? We have Paris, two people, characters played by Ethan Hawke and Julie Delphy meet and then who knows what could possibly happen…
Romeo and Juliet
The original to this adaptation was written Shakespeare but this version is set in modern day directed by Baz Luhrman. Every bit the fairy tale, start crossed lovers who have to hide their love from their family. Worth a watch if you haven’t!
For the singles
I haven’t forgotten all the singles out there, guys and girls. I’ve been there myself and know what it feels like to be single at this time of the year. Do not fret, if you choose not to party the night away then here is something for you! A reminder that there’s someone out there for all of you:-)
