In Korea and Japan, 14th February is the time when sweet young nubile kawaii girls would personally hand make chocolates and give it to the guys they like.

The couples, obviously, go out and do the things normal couple do.

For unattached guys, this is the day they find out which girl (or girls) is having a crush on them. The popular guys would get tons of boxes, while the not-so-popular ones would have to buy chocolates for themselves so they don't look like losers.

If the feeling is mutual, then a month later on the 14th March, the guys would buy white chocolates for the girls in return. They can start dating, and take the relationship on from then on if they want.

Things are different in Malaysia. Over here, 14th February is the day when stupid guys like us get suckered into buying OVERPRICED roses, OVERPRICED soft toys and OVERPRICED chocolates from some opportunistic money-minded vampires to give to the girls who'd just sit there acting like a rich TaiTai wanting to be pampered like a spoilt princess.

Why? Because we want to me her feel SPECIAL. Because we know that if she sees all her pretty girl friends getting all these fancy chocolates and cards and roses and teddy bears, while she gets nothing more than a "Oi, when are you gonna come back and cook dinner", you BET she's gonna wither away and melt in a green pool of jealousy.

What do the guys get in return?

NOTHING. NADA. ZILCH.

There's absolutely NO requirements in Valentine's Day tradition for the girls here, single or not, to do ANYTHING for the guys at all. Tell me, what's a girl supposed to do for a guy on Valentine's Day?

More importantly, what CAN girls here do for their guys on Valentine's Day? Brush his teeth?

Heck, the girls here probably don't even know how to make chocolates at all. They just expect you to buy them stuff, stuff, and MORE stuff. Too spoilt. It's the same story EVERY Valentine's Day. Men are always on the losing end.

WHERE'S OUR SWEET YOUNG NUBILE KAWAII JAPANESE GIRLS?!

WHERE'S OUR GODDAMN HANDMADE CHOCOLATES?!

WHERE?!?!?

One month later all our hard work, money and meticulous preparation will conveniently be forgotten because hell, she just had this tsunami-sized bitch fit with you! And it probably stemmed from something sooooooo small, such as us playing too much computer games and not paying her enough attention.

BAH! Hate feeling unappreciated!

It's sad. I'm almost about to join my brudders in protest and take the first flight out to Japan. It's too much hard work being a man celebrating Valentine's Day in this increasingly kiasu society where sincerity is no match for money.

But you know what? Despite how expensive things are, all the bitching and all the whinging, we guys still give in to it.

Yea, guys are suckers like that.

It doesn't matter how we're treated, we'd still buy the most expensive roses, the biggest soft toys and sweetest chocolates in the world, just to be able to share THAT MOMENT looking into each others' eyes and smile. And when that happens, it's as if our world is finally, finally complete.

Man, this love thing is evil.

I don't know why guys like to buy soft toy for their gfs...at least I don't like it.

Unregistered

i'm the 1st..yeah!

Unregistered

First!

Unregistered

oh...im not...:(

Unregistered

total there wif ya man... heart shaped like an ass yet so many buy into it...

Unregistered

Thank God that my loved one is not categorized in the kiasu society...or maybe the other way around on me! =P

Unregistered

god, i do hope I can give out gifts even if it is an expensive one...coz i dun any GF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Unregistered

Happy Valentine's Day Kenny!

Unregistered

Priveledge that girls get and guys suffer for it. Man that sucks.

Unregistered

Obviously you are not a romantic fool but sometimes girls do like absurdity. I, for one, is a romantic at heart gal. That's the wonder and beauty of being in love.

Unregistered

too bad..cos we r GUYS n live in MALAYSIA ^^

Unregistered

It's been a long time since I've posted a comment here.

I celebrated Valentine's Day with my gf @ home. We made our own meals (well she did all the cooking and preparation while I cleaned up). Nothing beats homecooked meals!

Unregistered

Touche' XD I agree-lah. Come, let's all boycott Valentines day!!
*gets shot by the tons of girls who expect lots and lots of presents on valentine's day*

Registered

Totally agree! Valentine's Day is meant for dumbass.

Unregistered

The girls have to feel special on this day. This accounts for all the traffic jams and the overpriced dinners and everything else. If only they don't mind a dinner on the next day, or roses on the next day, the prices go back to normal and there is more money to enjoy. Stupid to let the merchants make all the money from the guys.

Unregistered

hehehe! I just buat bodoh when my wife hint at me...I told her tonight dinner, we tapau 2 roti kosong and light red prayer candles want or not?? her face blank already.. i told her, everyday is a valentine to her as long as i treat her very well, massage for her every night...money is not everything...

Unregistered

Awww!!! Well, at least I got my boyfriend chocolates 8-) One of every type of vegan chocolate Haigh's had to offer 8-) And dark chocolate frogs! >_

Unregistered

The best part about Valentines is its for couples to get together and get closer, and for the wannabes to get started. But the thing is, Kenny is right. Girls are always on the winning end, heck they ARE girls! They get pissed and say you are not romantic enough and then ditch you. And its not enough, they go around telling all their friends and as many as possible that you are an asshole..

And no, I have not experienced having a girlfriend yet. Just looking at my friends give me the heebie-jeebies..

Unregistered

My husband doesn't believe in showing his love to me only on valentine's day and that's how it's always been since we started dating. But him not giving in to the marketing schemes equates to us getting into a disagreement every valentine's day. No matter how much this wife of his tries to understand where he's coming from, the pressure takes on a different meaning on the actual day and when she feels like she's not loved like all her other friends, cousins and co-workers who get flowers and chocolates. So if you guys wanna stand your ground on this day which is obviously money-making, be prepared to cuddle and "pujuk" your significant other so that she still feels special despite the lack of gifts.

Unregistered

I find that Valentines Day has become waaay too commercialised for my liking. Valentine's Day for me is not about the gifts at all, it's about quality time spent with your partner.

And besides, the whole chocolate, flowers and soft toy notion is so cliche.

I don't understand how any girl would feel special when every other one around her is getting the exact same thing.

I think it's so much more refreshing and romantic if you set yourself apart from the pack (and believe me your partner will appreciate you more for it). Homecooked meals, a picnic in a park or wisking your loved one away to some exotic locale are some things that i have done for my partner.

Brand differentiation is the key people!

Cheers

Boys... Imagine if ppl around u are using o2 Atom and u are stuck with Nokia 3310... How would u feel?

Imagine the rest playing wit X-box and u r still stuck wit PS1, how would u feel?

Obviously, gals jus wanna get even wit their peers... It’s not like they are not getting anything for u in return...

And btw, only the guys actually think roses + choc = valentine... In sum gals opinion, sincerity is way far more important... If out of cash, den plan a home-cooked dinner that is romantic la... Just bcuz u r short of a few bucks, dont whine and kill the atmosphere... Use that brain of urs pls!!!

And gals get guys far better and practical gifts den what a guy can think of... U know y? Bcuz guys will nv grow up and are still obsessed wit their expensive play-toys... So, we gals, too burn our pocket to cheer u up...

Yea, i understand some freakin gals like diamonds, platinum and bla bla bla.... So when the guys cant afford them, wat they do? Buy roses and choc... which are NOT PRACTICAL….
1. If u got money, get us diamond and platinum
2. If u dun have but still willing to spend (minus the whining), roses & choc is not a bad idea
3. If dun have money, or freakin kiam siap, go figure sumthing out, bake cookies or cook pasta…
4. The BEST: If u got money and luv ur gf a lot, but her diamond and platinum, roses and choc & cook for them as well… personally think these type of guys extinct dy, bcuz most of u r the egoistic MCP

After dat, hang in there…. Ur gf might come running in wit a new SE W800i, hand made cards, etc jus for u…. Which are PRACTICAL!!!!!!

Unregistered

well, what you guys want or at least hope to get in return for those gifts is sex at the end of the day rite? else I don't see why ANY guy would even bother... duhzz

Unregistered

hush hush stop crying. Hmmmm maybe we should all join the chauvinist movement :)

Unregistered

Pffffffttttttttttttt! I buy more presents for my boyfriend than he does for me. And we rarely celebrate Valentine's Day. At most he'll bring me out to a nice-ish restaurant on the weekend.

Unregistered

Happy Mass CONsumerism MAN-slaughtering Day to Kenny & kennysia.com blogders :p!

- Jacky ~_~ -

Unregistered

that is true about guys always giving, but i personally dont care if my bf doesnt get me anything, and i wouldnt get jealous cos itll be a neutral agreement between me and my partner not to buy presents for the day.. =)
well happy valentines day anyway!

Unregistered

not all girls are like that.... plz I rather my bf save the RM500 for bouquet of flowers(which they'll die in few days) to get me blink blink( at least they last FOREVER) on my bday or something.

Me and BF decided to pre valentine day dinner which serve good quality food instead of ex but tasteless food.

I rather him to surprise me with flowers on normal day (which make me feel more special) than parading with other girls on Val day.

And this valentine we decided that I buy him a meal, and he buy me gifts(not OVERprice softtoys) but something practical which on the NETT price.

I you really love that fella, everyday is a valentine day....dun hafta wait for this stupit day to celebrate rite.....

btw, KL jam like hell....how to rush in time for Valentine dinner? KEKEKEKEK

SO not ALL girls are like that.....*wink*
Cheersssss........ and Happy V-day to you fellas too!!!!!

I agree, but I do get something in return... A VISA to go oversea hunting KAWAII Jap girls with my classmate next month, without have to bring her!!! Yo!

Unregistered

Am I missing somethere here? You means guys give gifts and girls give nothing? I thought girls also give stuff to their bfs? No?

Unregistered

Hey Kenny!

I've been following your blog for a while now and I find it thoroughly entertaining! It's a nice read to take a break with, from all the studying! Surgery can be a real bore! >_

Of late, it seems to me that you have quite alot to say about women; Or rather the fact that guys are perpetually getting the crap end of the dipstick when compared to the opposite sex.
I guess that is not an unnatural surmise- IF you do not consider the BIGGER picture.

See. I think (personally, really :)) that WOMEN are the ones getting short changed.

First up- MENSTRURATION. Consider how much money we have to spend purchasing pads, tampons, and pain killers (for those unfortunate girls who suffer intense cramps) The price tag for that comes close to 10 GRAND.


Mood swings (a.k.a. PMS)
We don't like them.
All that hormones makes us retain a jack-load of fluid!

Then there's the basic up-keep.
Hair removal. Pluck, pull, wax, epilate, trim, laser- Consider the pain factor and co$t.
Make-up. It's not cheap.
Purchase a sub-standard one and you'll end up with an appointment with a dermatologist.
An expensive one, and there's a dent in the purse.

Clothes.
Men can wear the same pair of denim and tie- No one kicks up a fuss. If a woman sports the same outfit (or even PART of an outfit) twice in a week.. It's frowed upon. Regardless of the fact that we have our white coats over it! :P

Then there are the DISEASES.
NO more do women live 10 years longer than men. With the increasing amount of women in the workforce, AND stress (Let's not even tread into the fact that women are discriminated against in the workplace in terms of promotions!), women are at the same risk of cardiovascular diseases as men(especially post-menopause).
Women are also 4X more susceptible to Rheumatiod Arthritis and every other freakin Autoimmune disease there is out there. We get Lupus more than men. Just dandy.

Here's the ringer- LABOUR! Imagine being in pain for 8 hours prior to delivery. No drugs (least ones that has an effective enough sedative effect!). Just continous excruciating pain. Then comes the pushing. Envisage squeezing a pork roast out of your anus (since you lack a vagina, and your urethra would rupture)- How dinky! :P

And if we give birth at an early age, or TOO many births, we are more susceptible to Cervical cancer.

If we don't give birth, we are more susceptible to developing endometrial and breast cancer.


And these are but a FEW issues highlighted.
So really. One will have to be on crack to think that we women have it easy.

Thus be nice.
It's Valentine's day.
You don't have to be extravagant.
Girls are gay-er than you think.
We are a sucker for nice guys.
:)

There.
That's my 2 cents worth :)

Good to see that my knowledge of Japanese culture is still correct. I was having doubts about whether March 14th existed.

Unregistered

i disagree, kenny.

girls put alot of effort into gifts you know. not everyone wld "just sit there acting like a rich TaiTai wanting to be pampered like a spoilt princess".

Unregistered

Well...kenny happy valentines day^^

Unregistered

Well, It won't cost much if can spend few hours driving to Cameron and can get few times cheaper than the KL price. I just went up on Monday morning around 8am and got back around 3pm. 5 of my friends are sharing my petrol + tol and some pocket money too..hahaha..

+ can get strawberries..
Hey.. girls like strawberriess !!

Unregistered

I agree with Candice*...

that's y women have a day dedicated for them...

on March 8 it's World's Women's Day!! :)

Unregistered

Well, there IS one thing that girls are supposed to do on V-Day.

Or more accurately on V-Night.

Happy Valentine's Day to all single people reading this.

Unregistered

Just to savour that moment...as you said, to feel complete......man will do anything, even through history is proven, ex: taj mahal..etc..
Wat girls got to offer? .....

Unregistered

All you need to do
Is tell her that you love her
On your blog
And wait for her to melt.

That is all.

Unregistered

She gave me Godiva and I made cabonara bow spaghetti at home to pack out for her to eat :) That's what a gal can do, cook something special for her partner!

Unregistered

singaporean girls make chocolates for their guys..


oh well.. at least i did..

and i really rather have something other than roses (which will wither and stink the whole room a few weeks later and i still dun bear to dump it) and bears (it will just be dumped to where the other bears are at.. then a few months later, off to the storeroom)..

no?

Unregistered

Great. More feminist-inspired tripe coming out of the woodwork.

Or is it that sort of "entitlement" syndrome women are more susceptible to nowadays? Whatever. Reading some of the comments made me remember why I don't miss my ex-es.

Nice post Kenny!

Unregistered

u still owe me kolok mee wit extra kiaws. hahaha

happy valentines :)

Unregistered

i'd buy roses for you kenny!!! hehe

Unregistered

Don't surrender yourself to those over-priced stuff on valentine's day. Buy them the following day when everything's half price :p *LOL*

Unregistered

I think those overpriced soft toys/flowers/chocolates are meant for those lousy lovers, both the males consumers and females present receivers.

If you can get them a little of something, which reflects on how much attention you're paying her. Like tiny things which brings her back some sweet old time memories. Or maybe something which she mentioned sometime ago.

Pls laugh your ass off if you want, but this year I bought my gf a butter+sugar bun with a small packet of everyday chocolate milk. That's what I used to buy her every single morning during high school for one whole year before I left for auzzie. First Valentine's in 3 years' time. Hope she likes the presents.

Unregistered

how did i spend my valentine? practice for up coming performance the whole day with my gf; lunch at wilson's chicken rice (mlk), dinner at malay foodstall, and supper at mamak. mannn.. what a great valentine. ahaks~

if it works for me, it'll work for you too! mamak : try it today!

Unregistered

i spent valentine's at home doing work, which i'd rather much be doing then at a dinner feeling so cheesy with so many couples around...

-_-'

Unregistered

heh, i bought the chocolates for my guy. ;)

Unregistered

so fucking true la I was just telling every malaysian girl I know about this stuff man its like our minds were connected or something bloody vampires that are not worth it and yet ask for so much but dont look at themselves in the mirror to see what they actually are cheh...ridiculous

Unregistered

heh. not all girls are like thatlah.

valentine's day is...tasteless. :P although it does provide a great opportunity for people to ask their crush/potential partner out on a date, but that's the extent of it.

personally, i agree with candice* and joyce. very geli and self-conscious to be part of the couple-holding hands-act lovey dovey scene. and urgh..labour *shudder*

Unregistered

maybe it's better to make roses out of tissue papers~!...HAHA...cheap n interesting XD

Unregistered

Come on guys, you've got to be kiddin'?

Pampering the girls for just one freaking day in a year is nothing compared to cooking & cleaning for husbands almost every day of their marriage lives, right?

I seldom hear wives bitching about not being appreciated by hubby coz of this?

Unregistered

I got nothing more than a phonecall at 5pm saying "Eh, so tonight how ar?Wanna come my house for dinner or what?"
A week before it was "Eh, tell you first ar...I'm not getting you any flowers ok?"
(as if he's been sending all these while)Truth is, the "sent to office" flowers were never from him. How ironic and so sad.How's that for reversed manipulation?I've been had...

Unregistered

That's why it's stupidity for local women to NOT expect.You don't expect, you get taken for granted.

Unregistered

True, oh so true.....

Unregistered

Interesting to note that during festivities... there would be lotsa sales promotion with price markdowns. BUT for V'day... prices would be marked up. What gives?

For V'day.. its damned if you do, and damned if you don't. Whatever it is at least something must be done to appease the opposite sex.

Why dun the guys unite and check out the MAS Travel fair and buy tickets to Tokyo and survey the .... err... chocolates.

Unregistered

thought u r going to tell us how u spent this day??

Unregistered

Ya lah... i was shocked when my japanese friends told me their tradition is girls buy guys chocolates on vday.. and guys ARE NOT EXPECTED TO DO ANYTHING.
Wish i was in japan with them .. (*'-')

Unregistered

well... valentines, i took a day off, prepared dinner for my gal. one week ago i started making white chocolate roses for her. i rather make than buy, roses are not worth their money during v'day...

dinner - RM 500.00 (had champagne and good good lobster from sabah)

look on her face when she saw them white chocolate roses - PRICELESS

Unregistered

Well, i guess guys are pretty sucks here...i pity them.
but i tell u what, not all girls are like that ok! We girls do buy things for our boyfriends too, ok!!!

Unregistered

nowdays guys have to have a gold mine and f*ck like street dogs to setisfy a girl...

Unregistered

leo-chan, that's so sweet... god bless to both of u!!!
this is an example of a guy that dun complaint!!!

Unregistered

Those chocolates in Japan or Korea must be poisoned!!! u Malaysian guys must be careful, k? hehee...

Unregistered

Valentines should be about spending time together...maybe just having a movie marathon together. Even if my bf did not get me anything it would be okay, as long as he was there by my side during this time. Or as we are in an LDR and being students, we spent our Vday chatting on the internet and it was the best day I've had in weeks! Too bad some gf's dun understand that love is not about the material stuff you receive, anyone can buy you stuff, even the perfect jackass, a man who loves you may even forget the day exsited at all, but drive you to the clinic when you get sick and force you to finish up all you medicine and call you up to make sure you're doing fine...
Why dun u jus whip up a decent dinner, light a few candles, invite her over and spend the night eating and talking about random stuff. Trust me, she would be more than appreciative...and if she doesn't, then thre's someone else out there who will!

well, this is the problem with singapore and malaysia...

i did see gf(s) being given flowers but it was their bf(s) that holding them...OMG! That defeat the purposes...

maybe we should migrate to japan and korea

Unregistered

we don't buy stuff for each other, we go out for good food and enjoy the evening. When it comes to paying, both insist on paying so in the end we come to an agreement, he pay this, i pay something else. It has always been like this.

And I think valentines is a little over rated. If you love a person, it's an everyday thing.

Unregistered

totally agree with candice*
you go girl!

Unregistered

heh. the thought of japanese and korean girls making chocolates for the guys they admire is really cute! we should really start that tradition around here (or at least, i should start it with my boyfriend).

if he doesn't return me white chocolates on 14th march, hell, the relationship is over!~ (unless he forgets, of course)

have to agree with candice* though.

Unregistered

eh, how would you guys feel if we girls give u flowers? crush the ego?~

just a thought.

Unregistered

candice*: Doctors are scary.

Unregistered

some girls just have a misconstrued definition of "female empowerment".

they go on and watch all these demented american sitcoms thinking that whatever depicted in them scenes are meant to reflect how things are supposed to be in real life. before people start to knock me off for being anti-feminism and all that, can i just suggest that they examine what the true purpose of the whole feminist movement is? dont get me wrong, i'm all for advocating equal rights for women and all that but what i'm trying to say is, dont go making every molehill into a mountain and think that all men owe you a living. when we relent, you say we're poofy. when we put our foot down, we get labelled as chauvinist pigs. what has the world become to?

sometimes, i really wished pandora had not opened that bleedin box.

Unregistered

I dont like this entry at all..

You sound like you're back in Form One la woi..or back when guys still hate girls or starting to like but cant admit. Ish, this entry either sounds very bitter, erxperienced (to which I say u had a lintah darat for a gf) or just young. Take ur pick?

FYI Not all girls skip out on giving their bf stuff ok..!I bot him a Boost Controller that cost me almost RM500 and it was a very jazzed up presentation okiee...for u to just dismiss us as TAITAIs really too muchh, yo!

I also remembered my family okay! Bot them ALL stuff and cards & teddies & shiet..what's ONE of day expenses when it makes them feel special?

Agreeably, many guys declare 'its just another day' but if we dont celebrate it now, when do we ever? Bday? When's the last time you did something really sweet for a girl lehh? Once a year? When she comes back or when what?? Argh.

Is it 'just another day' when it comes to them receiving presents?

Nabeh..just cos Vday is commercialised & exploited by florists & what-not doesnt mean we all oso exploit our bfs maaaaaaaaa! KNNCCB!

Agree with Candice*. She better blogger this round, ding ding ding!

*Bluekkkk Kenny!*

Unregistered

You could not have put it better. That was the perfeect description for a typical Malaysian girl/woman.

I don't mean that all women are like that, just mostly in general.

Unregistered

Yeah. Especially that swearing part. Typical.

Unregistered

Bleah!:( says the Doggie in "Peanuts".

Talking about V.Dae knots, here's some freshing ones -- not Kenny's coconuts though -- those are being sent to the Sarawak Tribune for entertainment!

From Howdy'S:

*What did the boy bat say to the girl
bat on Valentine's Day?
You're fun to hang around with!"

**What did the boy cat say to the

You're purrr-fect for me!

Unregistered

VD celebration = Very Delayed celebration... with the long traffic jam to town and long Q to dinner. But we are still suckers to this cliched celebration.

Unregistered

wassup wif complaining who giv wat? it's the satisfaction when u're givin tat counts.it's enjoyable to c the expression of the person receiving our gifts. if u cant afford a lil stg, jz do like everybody else, make a homecook meal la, or mayb jz giv her the attention all day la.

n wat's wif all d complaints about givin flowers n chocolates? it's not like everyday u guys giv chocolates n flowers la. some guys even feel out of place when givin flowers on a normal day.and heck, y does it hav to b d darn red roses? i think even if u giv a special Valentine's Day Card made by urself, it'll satisfy her enough.

U guys really think all the gals hook up on u jz for ur money ar? let's say u're rich n one day u bancrupt..how? if she stil stays wif u, i think u'll regret ever thinkin tat way. idiotic morons!

Valentine's Day is the day when all lovers get the chance to show how much they care towards each other when they are too busy every other day else to do so. It's an opportunity to do the things tat you both wana do together n hav the privilage to tell tat someone u havent forgotten about her or him. Apa la u ppl ni.. treating it like a day when u must spend some dime to make it perfect for everyone else to see. G Damn U!

Unregistered

haha. how abt a bf who bought u NOTHING while u bought him gifts.
a bf who was away from your side the whole day and night despite u calling him from 10pm - 3am?

Unregistered

Nothing is fair in this world. The girls get all the pampering, soft toys and stuffs while the guys slog hard to get that (insert some absurd amount of money
)(insert something girls like here) for them. Guys, ever wonder why your not a gal? why your a guy? why?

Unregistered

KENNY!

Can't wait till you blog about what have you done on Valentines... Let me guess... Making chocolate at home? :P

Unregistered

Haha, I know a guy that one year suddenly decided that Valentine's was terribly overcommercialised and didn't agree with it and wouldn't celebrate it... apparently he didn't tell his gf coz she turned up at his place with a HUGE handmade polisterene heart with a poem on it and a bouquet of chocolate rose or sth like that... and we just laughed till we cried because we knew he was so dead. Apparently he got away with telling her he forogt it was Valentines.

A note about those Japanese girls though... hahah, you see all that sweet stuff on your Japanese serials or anime perhaps, but Japanese girls can be super-duper-way-more materialistic, just depends on the type of girl. Don't you know most modern Tokyo girls aren't the submissive sweet type you see on TV anymore?

Unregistered

I boycott Valentines. Its just another day on the marketing calendar. A day of commercialism targeting victims of consumerism. Putting sexism aside and who is to get who what and all that - Regardless of gender - cos we all know a little bit of giving gets some 'loving' in return - so one should really not whine. Or at least, save it for the bedroom.

Interesting blog all the same.
My first comment. Ahh.....how exciting....*squeals like a Jap school girl with two fingers up*

Unregistered

cool entry..money is not everything, but only the heart that comes within will show the sincerity.Sometimes guys find it hard to express themselves, thats why they shower them with expensive gifts on V day.

Unregistered

"Tell me, what's a girl supposed to do for a guy on Valentine's Day?"

Go down on men.

Unregistered

Amen... Took the words right out of my mouth. Right out of my blog in fact. Wanted to write about it, you beat me to it. Let's see if I can find another angle.

Unregistered

kenny, i have to agree with you!!! lol i guess south east asian ladies are mostly like that~ so guys just have to bear with that fact..

Unregistered

ya.. its damn true.. i hate those kind of materialistic gals.. for those guys who have these kind of gf, u better take k.. for those guy who doesnt have these kind of gf, congrates.. q:

well...wat i think is...u DUN HAVE to buy flowers or expensive chocs to pleased the girls...it's just the effort that counts. As long as u turn it into a special day, do something memorable, i guess that'll be fine.

A bouquet of flowers --- RM300
A box of choc --- RM100
Expensive dinner --- RM250
The look on her face --- Priceless

XD

isn't the reason u spoil ur partner is because u love him/her? And with that - you'll 'gladly' sacrifice a little bit of ur time and money to make them happy.

But every relationship should be a balance of give and take. If u find urself giving (or taking) all the time, then i think ur in a messed up relationship.

anyways, happy hearts day.

Hey I didn't get anything on Valentine's Day ok? Instead I cooked for my boyfriend somemore. And I'm not complaining.

OK a bit-lah.

Technically in Korea, I don't have to do SQUAT for Valentine's... but I couldn't resist and bought the Korean gf a bar of chocolate anyway. I know... damn chia lat lah, been too domesticated from being around Malaysian women la!

Have a read here about the real deal in Korea ~

"It doesn't matter how we're treated, we'd still buy the most expensive roses, the biggest soft toys and sweetest chocolates in the world, just to be able to share THAT MOMENT looking into each others' eyes and smile. And when that happens, it's as if our world is finally, finally complete.

Man, this love thing is evil."

And it works the same this way...

Unregistered

Who says you need to spend so much for V-day?

Nothing beats home-cooked meals and just spending nice quality time together. Don't have to be Mandarin Oriental or Lafite or whatever.

Why do you have to feel pressured into buying overpriced present? It's guys' kiasuism and ego as well lah... If your gf throws a fit about not getting a RM250 bouquet of flowers, then it's time for you two to sit down and talk about your relationship.

Just my opinion and beliefs :)

HAHAHA! That last line is so true!!! ;p

Unregistered

IN defence of ladies...not all us blood-sucking vampires LIKE Valentines Day...it ruins the taste of the blood.

Registered

All you people who said homecook food is so fantastic, maybe you're not being realistic.

First, you gotta actually KNOW how to cook. Maggi Mee not that romantic right?

And even if you can cook, your date will become food critic and suggest ways to improve your cooking.

And even if you know how to cook, and you're an expert in cooking. I STILL don't think you wanna invite your partner for a date at home.

What? You wanna share your partner with your sister, her date, your brother, his wife, your father and mother all on the same table? Like Chinese wedding dinner liddat!

Registered

Aazani, hey I never said the ladies are blood sucking vampires! ;) I said the opportunistic BUSINESSES are blood sucking vampires. Personally I'd prefer my ladies to be sucking... well, nevermind.

Oh and I know not all women are like what I described. I'm generalising and I know that. God, please let my readers by less politically correct.

Unregistered

Ish.. first entry I found quite annoying to me *bleahss*
First of all la.. This is from the guy's point of view ma..

Some *caring* gf-s will make chocolate also la k.. I also did that even though it ain't v-day.. I knew some of my girl friends went through every single shop to find something special for their bf. Some of them spent hours thinking of something special and diy the item to gv to boys(o gals XP).. Some of them woke up 4am in the morning to make chocolate or lunch boxes..

| all the gals want is a memorable v-day.. the only way that boys can think of to make it memorable(and convenient to them) is spending a big load of money and starts doing the same thing every year.. |

Erm.. if u wanna talk bout $$ leh.. Well.. though this is something materialistic.. but then.. one of my girl friend went n bought a RM300 crystal-dunno-wat-shit-is-it-for bracelet + a RM500 branded watch for her EX-bf.. cos she claims she still love him.. |dam rich gal =.= |

Anyway.. if boys are more creative at making the valentine's day more memorable.. they wouldn't have to spend a hell load of money lahh....

eg: A day splashing at the beach with ur love one

Tayar(if she dont know how to swim)-- RM5 |can use how long u want |
Hot dog or burger for lunch -- RM 10-20 |can eat till full full|
People singing for u -- FOC (on ur radio on the car lahh )
Tasty drinks -- RM6 (go get sparkling juice lah.. alcohol bad for brains lahh)
Parking fees -- FOC (they dont charge lahh.)

however.. if ur gf still wants to have a high class dinner..
then hor.. only thing I can say is.. once in a blue moon ma =.=


Unregistered

Haha...M'sian money making vamps?? Yo dude...I'm studying in Japan and uhh....do you know that Valentine is introduced here as a move to promote chocolate?? Yeah, there are girls who make their own chocolate but majority buys them...and you won't believe how much chics are willing to spend for chocs... so yeah, Japs are very much a money making vamp too!!!

Unregistered

wahh .. like that i want a korean gf .. nevermind that I know nuthin korean .. but I got choco at least

Unregistered

I have heard n seen enough bullshit from the girls. I dun mind if i got a 3310 n the rest got O2.Do u know that 3310 has the furthest throwing record due to its weight having enough mass and surface area to glide..

Unregistered

hahaha

Valentines is overrated

Unregistered

It really depends on how the expectation is set between 2 parties, many have different standards. I guess it is all about give and take.

Unregistered

Nahhh... saggy guys are just not romantic enough laa..(an advice =P )

Unregistered

Kenny, ur the man! First u said guys have to be suckers and lavish gals wif expensive gifts. Then u said gals can suck **** in return??! lol

Unregistered

Hi Kenny! I made some handmade Valentine cards and giving out to my colleagues and yes, that includes d guys. So far they r happy (otherwise they'll b blacklisted next year he..he..he). It seems d happiest of d lot is d ladies, thinking that someone is having a crush on them. Well, until they c my name, there goes their crush fantasy he..he..he.. Nevertheless, everyone likes it. Just sharing on wat i did during Valentine's day :)

Unregistered

Suck My BALLS........BITCHES!!!!!

Unregistered

Hey, I'm sure not all girls are like that. I baked cookies for Valentine's Day to give to my loved ones, which include my friends. I don't think all girls just wait to be pampered like a rich 'taitai'. Some would make something special to give to her loved ones too.

Unregistered

aww, this is so sweet.


actually, i'm pretty sure that not all girls are into the whole soft toy and flower, commercialized thing. As long as we know that we're important to the guy, and that he's thinking about us, we're happy ...


Of course, most girls would be happier if they received gifts lah. Just to feel manja-ed. =)

Unregistered

adding on to your Japan/Korea Valentine's custom, if the guy do not like the ger that gives him the chocolate, he'll give back the ger marshmallows on 14 March.
a subtle yet still polite way of rejecting the love.
aren't they full of ideas??

Unregistered

learn how to cooklah doinks! Can even spend money, dun wanna put any effort...mite as well dun hav a gf rite?Like Im sure even a caveman knows how to burn his meat...Whip up somethingla, it the thought that matters. Honestly if she complains abt the food jus DUMP her! Ppl who dun appreciate r not worth anything!

Dun tell me ur parents and bro & sis are gonna sit beside u & ur gf on valentines day? Sure they have their own thing to do aite?

Actually, this suggestion is more feasible for those living together or married. Get ya fly members to cooperatela...Cmon, if you have so many ideas on what to blog abt dun tell me u can even figure this one out...

Unregistered

some msian gals make chocolates for their loved ones too.. just maybe u havent been meeting one yet...

Unregistered

March 14 - that is called WHITE DAY in Japan. Where many guys can reciprocate to the gals they like...how sweet :-)

Unregistered

Been reading your blog and always found it quite entertaining.

So what was the damage? ;)

I understand the pain and angst that guys go through every year, but I find that your entry is a tad one-sided. The women suffer too, and not just on Valentine's Day. Write on, Candice*!

Unregistered

hmm...my bf might have gotten me a big teddy bear for V-Day and I know it costs him a lot, but I did my part too k! I did get him something as well, so he cant complain about not being pampered :p

Unregistered

helloz kenny,

try looking into the lens of the camera in the mirror while taking a pic in front of the mirror. that way u won't look as if u are taking a pic of someone else. :)

jes

Unregistered

v-day, yeah right, now every1's debating on "most" gals being materialistic and what not, and those business-minded sucking $$ from stupid guys.

well here's what i fink: IF I HAD THE CHANCE IN THE WORLD, I'L EVEN BUY A RM1000 ROSE FOR MY GF!

the only thing that count is the will in the heart of doing it. sometimes guys juz don care how much they spend as long as they see satisfaction in the eyes of their love ones. and gals will always get touched even if the steak that u cook sucks. its the thought that counts!

this day comes once a yr, y r u all so "ngiau"??? to me, if i hav the chance, everyday's a v-day to me.

Unregistered

yeah man, if u owned red ferari, i wanna hav ur baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!lolz..

Unregistered

Aiyoh, go and celebrate steak and bj day loh.. so simple :p

Unregistered

you obviously dated a lousy girl/girls who gives u nothing in return. have better taste lah. all my gal frens handmake or buy stuff for their crushes/bfs, ok?

Unregistered

bwahahahahaha

Unregistered

thats fair..... girls are supposed to be pampered....... guys should do all the hardwork for girls.... and spend for them too..... then you'll know if you have a rich boyfriend or not.... thats the first priority if you are looking for a partner!! $$$$$$$ hehehehe

Unregistered

not every girl is like wat u said to be. mayb u were jus unlucky tat u found a bitch.

valentine's is not just a day of gifts n flowers n chocs...its a day where u share tat special moment wif the one u love...its as simple n easy as tat..

Unregistered

my fucking bastard boyfriend dumped me before Valentine's Day so he could go screw his fat ass sister. you wonder why some girls are so bitter.

Unregistered

Actually,i would gladly make the special day memorable for us both ^^...It's not really about the money to me..Coz money can be earned again.But...Guys too wanna feel appreciated u noe ;P

Unregistered

love is wonderful..
exploitation sucks..
i'd like to do a driveby along the waterfront and kill every person who tries to sell a half dead rose just so they can go home and laugh about the stupid sucker who didn't do anything earlier and thought how romantic it'd be to get his gf one..

Unregistered

c'mon be more practical la this society has bring upon materialistic morons around...

Juz forget about the wither flowers u killed, the digested chocolates u ate & the useless big bear for kids.

Girls,
Get something useful where he get to wear & use it, i think guys will much appreciate the gift than anything else.

gadgets - Electronic Shaver / HP / pocket PC / Laptop
Clothings - Ties / Shirts / Tees / bermudas
Bags, wallet, pouch

Something which he has been eyeing for & within your budget...


Unregistered

....not all galz r lyk dat....well....i rather he just say happie valentine day den buying anything useless *especially roses* how bout cactus?! i lurve cactus!!! and i like ice cream 2 hahax.....well...i don't mean 2 say that i want him 2 belanja or anything...just sms happie valentinez day can liao loooooo.....nway....i don't have a boyfwen....I'M JUST 14!

Unregistered

Dun get a gf loh... as simple as that. U claim u'll love her until the day u die. That u can never live without her but when u have to spend a few ringgits, u start grumbling like anything. Si be kiam siap ah... gals slave for u all year long and u only have to treat her nice ONCE every year yet ur complaining like hell already. Valentine's day is almost equal to Labours' Day for girls. I don't mean only girls should get good treatments lah. It's just that a lot of ads always make valentine's day macam for the girls only pulak. I think it could be because guys need reminder but girls have initiative to surprise their partners with wonderful gifts. Anyway, that's just my opinion... But I just cannot stand idly by when kaum sejantina is being unfairly judged. I do admit though that you've got a point there. Make love, not enemy with ur gf la~

Unregistered

just read this post.

dudeeee.. seriously. streotyping. i for one DO NOT like stuffed animals. one single long stem white rose is enuff to make me feel special. chocolates?! seriously?? that's so0oo old school.

i rather go do something with my guy... like spend a day at sunway lagoon or genting or something like that. spend the day being together taking pics or something.

or just spend the whole day making out or something.. thats so much more fun. =P

Unregistered

Go on its really good http://spank.ath.cx

Unregistered

I'm damn late in saying this, but the culture here compared to Japan is REALLY different. Of course, not all people are like that, just generally. (wish I live in Japan though)

But yeah, the nice thing about living here is that at least we'll know when someone (esp in a guys shoes, which incidentally, I'm a girl XD) truly cares for you if he/she buys you something lol

Unregistered

Impossible, how GOOD your work is. I am realy surprised. http://medicalfetish.enscot.com

Dunno where you get your girls from Kenny. I buy my husband stuff... all the time!

Unregistered

I agree fully with kenny, I wanna be pampered too you know.

Unregistered

Jonathan Ross is dubbed "risque" by Ofcom but not in breach of rules over an interview with David Cameron...

Unregistered

kenny .... u r 2 fat for chocolates so forget the sweet young nubile kawaii gals in japan and korea. Besides, a bunch of stupid roses and some tacky stuff toy doesn't compare to the amount of bloody frustration that we gals have to put up with you when it comes to guys and your *#!!@!!* attitudes for a whole year.

Unregistered

If guys are buying expensive stuff, that's the price they gotta pay to keep a high-maintenance trophy to show off to their buddies.

Unregistered

I soooo totally agree with Candice*.
Those r but a FEW reasons women should be given at least some(more) attention and appreciation.

But it is only a matter of how we define what is due appreciation and what is partial gratitude to the woman who sticks by the man she loves.

I agree that overpriced valentine gifts r in fact hazardous to the economy!! But then again, if a man does not make valentine's day a special day for his lady, he is missing out on ALOT!

The world has given men a chance to win the lady's heart over and over again, year after year, so why not seize the opportunity when LOVE IS IN THE AIR? Plus, V-day is such a hoohaa that i believe no one will ever forget its a day to pamper your loved ones.

Personally, the "reward" i return to my beloved is endless support and daily appreciation. And...he just LOVES my doing that!!!

Unregistered

Hey i know how to make those mini chocolate things!!!!

Unregistered

dude,i'm so sorry for you.u surround urself with the wrong ppl lah.xP

Unregistered

hmm.. u are overgeneralizing here, i guess.. as a woman myself i dun think women are as bad as what you've mentioned here.. no offense, but perhaps u found urself disappointed with such kind of women then causing you to jump into conclusion that girls are that "useless"
does it bother you so much that a girl doesn't know how to make chocolate? and does it burden you so much to buy gifts for girl during V day? if it is so, you might as well forget getting a girl at all, thus you CAN really save much much money that way.. peace \/

Love,

Ann

I contacted Dr Ijebu regarding my ex girlfriend. who was no longer wanted to love me anymore, after begging and pleading with her I realized it was because of another boy, she really was leaving me. My co-worker went threw a similar situation and told me that Dr Ijebu had helped her. I cant thank her enough, I'm grateful to her for introducing Dr ijebu to me. After discussing the resolution with him, his spell has done more than what I expected. My ex girlfriend not only came back to me, but she had also totally left that boy for me and now were engaged, we are getting married soon, I don't know what I would have done without Dr ijebu, I believed he is my guarding angel. DR IJEBU want to thank you & your gods for all that you've done for me all these years.I'm thankful for all the time & effort you & your gods have put into my PROBLEM. I am very happy for always been sincere and honest to me, His email is ancientijebudespelltemple@gmail.com
