Un-Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is coming up faster than you can imagine.  In roughly 2 weeks, lovers everywhere will be sharing smooches and chocolates.  Don’t have a valentine for this year’s Valentines Day?  It’s okay, there are plenty of us out there as well.  So, I’ve decided to compile a list of things to do this Valentine’s Day for all those singles out there.  Just because we’re single doesn’t mean we can’t have fun on this day, right? 😉

Here we go:


Get with some of your single girlfriends (or boyfriends if you’re a guy) and celebrate your independence!  Make some food, decorate it, have fun, eat, and do some girl (or guy) talk.  Sweets are always nice, so I suggest baking some cookies, cream puffs, and cupcakes.  Oh!  And if you gals (or guys) want nice meals, perhaps a Giada de Laurentiis book might help.  Her recipes are always delicious and mouth-watering.  When the food is ready, turn up the music and have some good ol’ girl (or guy)time.


Maybe you have a friend or sibling who’s going out for a romantic night with their significant other.  And they need someone to babysit.  I say you go for it and have a good time with the child (ren)!  Believe it or not, kids are fun beings and they will definitely entertain you.  It also gives you a chance to feel like a free-spirited child again!  haha~ You and the kid (s) can make crafts, watch T.V., play a game, etc.  If you [hate] kids, this might not be a good option.


Maybe this is a good time for you to think about life and what you want.  Sit with a warm cup of tea or coffee and relax while doing some thinking.  Plan out what you want to do with your life and what you are looking for in a relationship.  I mean, you’ll have to do this sometime or another.


Go shopping!  Treat yourself to some goods.  Maybe gather some girlfriends (or guy friends) and go get a new wardrobe.  Find a new style for you and try a new look.  Kohls, Kmart, and Walmart are very affordable.  But if you’re really feeling up for some high-style shopping, Banana Republic, Commes de Garcon, Lacoste, and Burberry are nice picks for starters.  Or choose a store (or stores) to your liking.


Pamper yourself!  Whether it’s a massage or a day at the spa, get pampered!  I haven’t even had the fortune to try one of these yet (I think I’m also too young).  But if I could, I would love to spend the day at the spa.  All I know is that they rub a variety of scented oils on you and slather you with a bunch of other stuff.  But also imagine the hot springs?  Oh-la-la~ Take your mind off of everything and get treated with love.

Okay, so those are my top 5 ideas for un-valentining February 14th.  Maybe you’ll take my suggestions, maybe you won’t.  Either way, I hope you enjoy your February 14th, it’s a day of love, not just for couples, but also for yourself.

As you all know, Valentines Day is coming closer as we speak.  Once again, lovebirds will celebrate … love… on February 14th (Sunday).  *sigh* And also yet again, this year I will once again be alone on this day.  Actually, no I lied.  Chinese New Year happens to fall on the same day as Valentines Day this year!  yay~ So this Valentines Day, I’ll actually be with my family for Chinese New Year fun (meaning food, red packets, and watching those New Years Gala shows on CCTV).  But that’s not the point… LOL

Anyways, this post is reserved for love and Valentine’s Day.  I’ll probably discuss Chinese New Year fun in a separate post, LOL, because the two have no relation to each other.

Yea, so Valentine’s Day.  I have yet to experience what love is… but I do know that love can make people healthy!  Hahaha apparently research has shown that love can cure almost any health problem (of course, this is only to some degree).  Plus, it can make people happier and live longer!  Wahhh~ I think you just got the secret to immortality… Kekekeke…

Umm… but seriously, ehem…, I truly hope lovers out there will enjoy their Valentine’s Day this year.  Take the time to be with the one you love.  Be romantic, happy, giddy, etc.  For 2 people to find each other and have chemistry is very rare… So enjoy the fact that you were lucky enough to find that person and take the day off to be with him or her.  Love is something that most people have a difficult time finding and sometimes when they do find it, it doesn’t last.  Cherish what you have… because love is pure and rare, like a jade stone… Happy Valentine’s Day to all the lovers~  I wish you the best of luck and happiness.

… And then there are those of you like me.  Alone and without that special someone this year for Valentine’s.  *sigh*  It’s okay though.  There are lots of stuff you can do to enjoy the day, even if you aren’t Chinese and don’t celebrate Chinese New Year LOL.  For example, love on Valentine’s Day isn’t only for lovers… The day celebrates love between family and friends as well!  So feel free to go out with your friends and have a girl bonding day (or if you’re a guy, some guy time).  Talk and reconnect with friends and family.  Share the love and be thankful of the love surrounding you.  Happy Valentine’s Day~!

Bai Bai~~~

Love, Kai li
