Yeah Valentine’s Day STILL Sucks – Be My Anti-Valentine

I’ve always been anti-valentine’s day, I’ve even been in the papers for my views on this.

It seems trendy in the last 1-2 years to go against Valentine’s day, it seems anti-commercialism is finally hitting the mainstream.

Valentine's Day

What’s the point really? Overpriced flowers? Overpriced dinners?

As I mentioned before, I learnt a very good lesson about 20 years ago from my lovely mother, I bought her some tulips on mother’s day as is customary.

She scolded me upside down..

The gist of her message was why…why did you buy these flowers today when they are triple the normal price? What does today mean? Why do you need to buy these flowers today? Can you not show your appreciation to me on any day? Or every day? Because the flowers are triple price, that means on other days you could buy me flowers 3 times rather than 1, and they would be unexpected, so more appreciated.

She advised me if I wanted to do something, make her a card, or make something, that would show I really put some effort and not just dropped some money, which anyone can do. And it doesn’t support the commercial bastards who are intent on emptying our pockets.

Basically she said the day is bullshit, and the same goes for Valentine’s day, appreciate your partner every day.

Not just when the man wants you to so he can grab your money. Buy your girlfriend flowers whenever you see some nice ones, surprise her with a nice dinner. Celebrate your anniversary, because that is a meaningful day.

Don’t celebrate Valentine’s day, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day or whatever other spend-your-money Day they come up.

And to those singles who say Valentine’s day makes you feel more single, you are a bunch of wet, spineless, no brained fuckers too.

Valentine’s day has never made me feel anything, either way…because it’s a meaningless day created to make money.

Don’t support Valentine’s day.

Valentine's Day

Be my Anti-Valentine.

Happy Valentines Day..Or not..

    Although I totally agree re Valentine’s day. Mrs I often asks, “what are we doing this Valentine’s day?”, to which she gets the frankly unromantic answer of ” we’ve been married 18 years – so same as every other bloody valentines day, dinner, drink and watch a film….or something 😉 “

    Another to be Anti-Valentine is not to talk about Valentine Day. Or you can try vandalize Valentine Day entry at Wikipedia XD

    You’re absolutely right…. I wouldn’t want my husband to buy me overpriced flowers on Valentines day but a normal priced gucci bag and a holiday at some Aman resort will do nicely. THank you…

    Suddenly I feel much better for being stuck with two guys in a car in a 12-hour road trip from sending off a friend going off to Aussie from Kuching.

    does anyone know how to get to Little Genting – Puchong?

    i’m staying in petaling jaya.

  13. narrowband February 15, 2007 at 12:21 pm #

    Hahaha. I like this. I feel better now.

    Btw the only Little Genting I know is in Cheras-Ampang area. It’s a place where couples go for their makeout-dezvous.

    Asyraf Lee: Hey well business is business!

    Chapree Da Grande: Wiki entry is already protected 🙁

    clement: Er, basic English la dude, go look up ANTI in the dictionary.

    Aunty Ningku: Aye that’s the right idea 😉

    kianbung: Well I’m glad I made at least 1 girl happy!

    100kg woman: Well we disagree on that one then 😉

    cpyeoh: The only Little Genting I know is in Cheras…not Puchong. And why are you asking here?!

    cpyeoh: Well we do know I guess, the little genting is in Cheras though, not Puchong, not far from Pandan Indah area.

    changeiam & gazard: Glad you agree 🙂
