Quote of the day: "Love sought is good, but given unsought, is better." - Shakespeare, William
Well, here's hoping that your Valentine's was good - in the end we (and by that i mean Albert, Boon, Jo Lyn, JJ, and myself) went to Clear for drinks, for company, and for the opportunity to just be ourselves (that is, as debauched as our conversation). That, and i finally got to actively watch a WWF match on the TV, for lack of having anything better to do...
It was relatively depressing, what with the multitude of couples that kept passing by in front of us.
Yet uplifting, in a group therapy kinda way.
Still, at least i had some good company - and thats always welcome in my book. Thanks guys! ;)
On a more pleasing note however, in the only memorable Valentine's Day planning that i was privy to, Vikram took to heart my recounting of my last Valentine's Day tale: Three/four/five (ouch) years ago i bribed my little brother into playing the part of a butler and chef (he's a great cook) while i entertained my date with that classis combination of wine, candles, a 3-course dinner... uh... my 'wit', and a 36th floor penthouse view of KL city by night (God bless my home. And the convenience - fantastic!). Just the right kind of personal touches to make it both private and memorable. ;)
Anyhow, seems like Vik cooked up a storm last night and even managed to decorate his house with at least 30-odd candles - heck, he even added a nice touch by sending her a formal invitation complete with a menu (which i had reviewed prior to its sending). The theme was based around gold or/and purity with all the dishes he made being of that hue - complete with titles for each course like... erm... 'Golden sunset' for the dessert of vanilla ice cream and mango slices (somewhat corny really - but this may be the bitter and lonely cynicist in me speaking). I can't recall the details but i'm pretty sure there was an asparagus/mushroom soup and butter/cream prawns in there somewhere... you get the idea. I'm guessing that this theme was made to match the gift which was a lovely gold necklace he had bought the week before.
Anyhow, written at the very bottom of the menu (and i have to say this) was written the following post-dinner degustation - "Price: One Kiss"
I still have no idea as to whether she paid the asking price. I'm pretty sure she did, although something about his behaviour today tells me she might have given him a generous tip in the bargain... *winkity wink*
So... how was your Valentine's? :)
Oh, was bored so i did some quizzes (thanks Midnite Lily!) too:
