We originally wanted to share a slice of cheesecake, but we had ice cream earlier that day (a treat from the boss). I got sick of the thought of having more sugar so I opted for something savoury.
I am a SUCKER for Valentine’s Day!
It makes me smile whenever I see couples being romantic. Everything just seems better and happier on this day of the year. By now you must have booked a romantic dinner date or ordered flowers or chocolates to be delivered to her office. If not, what are you waiting for?
No budget for a date night? No problem. As I am kuripot, I believe there are ways to celebrate this special day without spending a fortune. Well, maybe this is just me, but I would rather have time (and a lot of attention) on this day rather than presents (unless it is something I really, really like).
From the moment we got a job and start earning our first salary, we were told to save so we can have enough money to feed our family, and to buy a house and a car. We were designed to desire the best things in life and we were told to work hard so we can afford them.
As soon as we get our paycheck, we spend on clothes, restaurant food, travel and so many other things. Advertisements from TV, social media, and magazines scream to us on a daily basis that we NEED to get the latest gadget, the most stylish pair of sneakers and the celebrity-endorsed cosmetics. As a result, we work extra hard so that we have money to spend on things we think would make us look and feel good.
