"You dont need over-priced roses in an extravagant vase and arrangement to show her you care. You dont need pricey chocolates, or splashy jewelry...You dont need the extravagant, money-grubbing, frivolous things. . . just each other."
Wise words from Pio (an amazing blogger btw, considering his age) in Kim's page. But you know what I think?
Obviously that's the ideal situation that us guys would love to have. No need to spend a single cent on overpriced goodies, just spend time with each other, and all the other stuff from those schmoozy woozy tear jerking romance movies like The Notebook. Two people sitting on a fallen tree log by the seaside watching the sun goes down. Awwwwww...
But this is the real world. Girls want over-priced roses on Valentine's. They want expensive chocolates. Of course spending time with each other is important too, but ITS VALENTINE'S DAY DAMMIT! You're supposed to treat me better than the 364 other days that's not Valentine's Day and the 84 other days when I'm having my PMS! Otherwise, what's the point of Valentine's? Correct or not?
As much as girls tell their bfs "Flowers? No need lahh... don't waste money". I know girls lah. Outside, they blast the V day but deep down inside they secretly want it one.
"I don't want flowers" means "I want flowers."
"Lets just eat Maggi Mee for dinner" means "I want my candle light dinner at the 5 star restaurant."
"I've got a surprise for you in the bedroom tonight" means "I don't want to have sex with you tonight."
That's why girls are so hard to understand. They say they want one thing, but what they want inside is a whole different thing.
Say you're a girl and you go out dating with your boyfriend on Valentine's Day. You see all these couples around. So you peek at one of the couples to see what the boyfriend got for the girl.
What's that? One single filmsy rose in a cheap plastic wrapper? HAHAHAHAHA! My boyfriend got me lilies ah! Hear that or not? LILIES LEHHH!!! TEN OF THEM SOMEMORE! Expensive one leh! Somemore my one comes decorated with baby's breaths leh. BABY'S BREATHS LEH!!!!!
What else he got for you? Silver necklace? From where? Pooh Khee Mah Goldsmith in India Street? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAA!!! My boyfriend got me PLATINUM necklace leh! Not just any necklace you know. Don't play play, TIFFANY & CO LEHHH!!!
You think girls don't like to compete with each other? Hoh! Sometimes they are even more competitive than guys one you know! I call it the MBABTY (My Balls Are Bigger Than Yours) syndrome. Everyone is suffering from the MBABTY syndrome, including girls. If you have something, I want to have it too - and I want it to BETTER than yours.
Girls criticise Valentine's Day for being too overrated. Guys complain about Valentine's Day for being too commercialised. So who's left celebrating Valentine's? Despite so many people openly attacking it, many couples still celebrate Valentine's Day. Why? GIRLS LAH! Abuthen?
Ok I know many females read this blog. So, I expected to get flamed for this. Let the Kenny-Blasting session begin. :)
P/S. This will be my last entry about Valentine's Day I promise. Shall revert back to the old classic blue kennysia.com's theme from the next entry onwards. :)
