A Little Thing Called Love!

Valentine's Day is fast approaching and it's that time of the year where roses and gifts from the “heart” fly off the shelves. Singapore being the ever modern country that she is, sees thousands of couples of all ages celebrate LOVE in many ways. Some with extra dough in hand will dine at fancy up-scale restaurants while some would opt for something a little more romantic like a picnic under the stars at the beach.

I would fall under the “I DO NOT CELEBRATE VALENTINE'S DAY” category. I reckon the last time I celebrated Valentine's Day was back in my teenage years. Mostly because most of my friends were celebrating it and I wanted to impress as well. Yes, those teenage years! I for one choose to believe that everyday should be Valentine's Day. We should love each other like there's no tomorrow and appreciate life for what it is.

Well if my girlfriend Stephanie was in Singapore, we would probably do something crazy just for the sake of doing something different. She's an extreme sort of person. She loves skydiving, bungee jumping and base jumping. I on the other hand am extremely comfortable in my own little world. I can't imagine myself jumping out of an aeroplane yet alone off a bridge or building. Having that piece of rope or a parachute doesn't help one bit!!!

Take for example her recent trip to Singapore. I have NEVER been on a roller coaster in my life. Heck I went to Hong Kong and I gave away the express roller coaster passes! But she comes along and boy did she rock my world. We went to USS and I not only took a roller coaster for the first time in my life, I did it 6 times!!! For those wondering, yes I took both the Battlestar Galactica's Human and Cylon ride twice each!

In short, every moment spent with Stephanie is Valentine's Day to me. We have so much fun together as two scorpio's in a relationship that it's impossible to tell you about it in a single blog post. We even made lying under the stars at a beach in Sentosa fun. Nooooooo, we didn't do the ahem on a public beach. Instead we checked out sand castles, listened to good music and laughed for three odd hours.

Maybe you can do something fun as well this Valentine's Day. There's is this contest where you can win fantastic prizes. It's the Durex Love Box Pose and Post Contest and the grand prize is a 4 day 3 night couple trip to the beautiful resort island of Krabi, Thailand worth SGD$5000.00!
