What is it about Valentine's day that makes everyone think about roses, chocolates, and presents? I'm not denying that people think of presents and roses and chocolates at other times as well, but even more so when V day rolls around. Perhaps it's the commerciality of it?

Reflecting on that, what does Valentine's day actually mean? Is it the only day of the year that couples, friends, and family members can show to their loved ones how much they actually care about each other? Or maybe it's just one big conspiracy created by those vendors looking to make a quick buck each time V day arrives? :p You know, when they can overprice roses, chocolates and gifts without being told off for it because it's common knowledge that where there's demand, there will be inflation. :/ (ok, not so common knowledge, but if you study economics you will know lah)

Personally I think that if you love someone, be it your boy/girlfriend, family member, or friend, you don't show extra affection just on that day. What I mean is, everyday can be Valentine's day, it doesn't have a specific date, and it sure doesn't have to fall on the 14th of February of every year.

True kan? Why must you conform to the V-day craze and spend so much money on overpriced items?? Might as well use that money to get other more important things :p

On a totally separate topic, I was on the way back to the client's office from lunch today when I heard this Mandarin song on the radio. Initially the only thing that caught my attention was the nice melody it had. Then the chorus came along, and when I heard the words.....suffice to say that it has more meaning to me now than previously :D

Don't ask me who the singer is because I do not know. I only know it's a guy la. So here's the English translation of the song (chorus only la):


Because you're my everything,
that's the only reason
that I have the courage to face all obstacles

I want to give you everything,
as long as you say the word, no matter how many tomorrows there are,
if i can give it to you, I will

Then my future will have more meaning, because your love is my everything


hehe, of course what I'm feeling now is NOT as kua chang as the songs does sound a little unrealistic talking about tomorrows and stuff..but sounds sweet la kan ^^

If any of you knows which song I'm talking about, can you please let me know? :D Thanks banyak banyak ^^
