While the whole world was having a date, I was having a romantic relationship with deadlines. By 8pm, Leo fetched me and handed me a single long-stemmed, red rose. I must say it did the trick. It’s just more romantic than the huge bouquets that are so embarrassing to carry. Plus he went shopping with me for some flats. I didn’t want chocolates this time, so after having bluntly asked for his Valentine gift budget the night before, we went to megamall to look for colorful flats and picked up two pairs – a green suede ensemble and a blue and yellow beaded pair. Nice ü.
