These photos were taken a few weeks back and I finally got around in editing and posting them here. :)
So anyway, yesterday was Valentines day and boy, was it
For us single people, its just another day.
Except its not. Flowers are everywhere. Red and pink hearts will flood your sight. My instagram feed was filled with cheesy couple pictures with messages as captions and sweet gestures captured in a 15 second video or slideshow of some sort. Feb 14 is just a reminder for us single people that we are indeed, single and is celebrating it with our lonesome (and some shots of tequila OR maybe an anti valentines day party? HAHA)
The traffic was horrible too because every couple in the city wants to parade their couple-y self in every restaurant. Add that to the fact that its friday and payday…
I literally got stuck in my car for 2.5 hours traveling to what used to be a 20-30 min drive.
Don’t get me wrong, I love seeing happy couples. I like being happy for friends that are happily with their significant others. It somehow gives me hope that one day, I’ll also have
some bouquet and chocolates to instagram and cheesy romantic gesture to take a video of and someone to spend valentines day with.
In a way, it kind of makes you jealous and makes you think to yourself how you also deserve a big bouquet of beautifully arranged flowers and a well thought out plan to celebrate the day or something, anything to make your heart swoon with giddiness.
I guess being a romantic sucks when you’re kind of cynical and bitter.
I don’t like sounding cynical and bitter but maybe that’s what happens when you’re single. Everything you say sounds bitter and cynical. Especially at this time of the year. haha
Anyway, I posted these photos because for some reason, they kind of apply to the romantic theme don’t you think?
And say hello to my little sunflower! Too bad it died 3 days after I bought it. Safe to say I indeed don’t have a green thumb. It did, however, brightened up my otherwise dull outfit shots a bit noh? (This was of course before it withered into a sad pale excuse of a sunflower 3 days after). It was really cloudy when I shot this so I was having a hard time editing it.

So, how was your Valentines day? :)
I hope it was better than mine.
