Alternative?


Hey guys, its love month (February) already. How are you going to celebrate your valentines? I suppose it’s with your special someone. And that could be the girlfriend, boyfriend, hubby or the wifey. Anyway, Valentines is supposed to be celebrated with that special someone who is very close to your heart. I am asking this because I have learned from a good friend who is planning an “alternative celebration” to that special day of hearts. Why “alternative”? Alternative in the sense that the couple celebrating is planning on a not so typical celebration like going out to a sumptuous, romantic dinner, a little nightcap with a little drinks and the everafter afterwards (hehehehe, you all know what I mean). Anyway, the alternative celebration my friend is planning is to celebrate this special day with one homeless child to care for in one day. According to my friend, they have so much love in their relationship and family and will be using that love they have to care for somebody who is in need of so much love. And they found a street child to care for and give love to for one day. Very noble love. I can’t help but be envious as this is not your regular celebration. I would have loved doing something like this. I just thought that it was just great to use that love that they have for each other and share it with somebody else. It’s a kind of a “pay it forward” stuff but a bit different. I don’t know about you guys, but it sure looks more romantic to me. So, got any alternative ideas than the usual flowers and chocolates? How about dinner on top of a tree or a nightcap inside a cave, (to creepy!) how about going bungee jumping after a splendid dinner (hate what might happen afterwards, yuuukkkk!) or picture this... just the two of you with the setting sun as backdrop, having dinner and conversation and what have you, on top of a barge about a mile offshore... very romantic eh! not so, cause there'd be sharks circling by and be careful not to go into a fight as somebody might end up as fishfood for the night... just joking guys! wishing you all the very best in this here month of hearts. ciao!

Well, that alternative celebration of your friend is also okay. But we sure can do that on any ordinary day. Valentines is valentines is valentines.. he he! Mostly for ladies, a dinner out and some music is the best. Sweet yun, di ba?

Thanks for the vote. Bukas ulit ha? he he.. Thanks so much for the time you wasted in there. See yah again, Bong!

And what's your plan on Vday? Taking the missus somewhere special? Hehe...

Your friend's way of celebrating VDay is indeed different & something worth pondering about. It's good to know that people are starting to think of various ways to share the love so to speak. Vday or not, I'm sure a lot people who are not as fortunate would love to be treated that way.

Here at home, our Vday is just one of those days. It's the little that makes a big deal out of it so the Dad has no choice....hahaha. She's been counting the days so walang lusot ang ama nya...

Anyway, thanks for the visit!

Happy weekend!
