This would not come as a surprise: Raft3r is not big on Valentine celebrations.
I just amazes me how commercialized this whole occasion is.
Blame it on Hallmark. While we’re at it, let’s include the flower and chocolate industries, as well.
Now don’t get me wrong. Raft3r is one romantic kid. I just don’t like being ripped off.
Love does not involve money. Spending a thousand bucks on roses for one day is ludicrous. But that’s just me.
Raft3r prefers not to go out on Valentines, too. Roads are clogged. Restaurants are filled to the brim. Motels are booked like crazy. It’s insane.
One memorable Valentine date comes to mind, though.
Since I prefer not to go out on the 14th, an ex insisted she’ll make it worth my while. Who could say no to such an irresistible offer? I said yes.
Raft3r came to pick her up after work. She gave directions as to where to go. As I parked the car, she said: “I’ll take you to a place you have never been to.”
I felt my knees weaken. Raft3r immediately made a mental note if he brought protection. I was good.
She took me by the hand and led me to a dark narrow alley. My heart was racing.
As we turned the corner, the surprise was waiting. She took me to a turo-turo (eatery).
Raft3r had kaldereta (beef stew). She had dinuguan (pork blood stew). The free soup was excellent. She paid for dinner.
Although the date did not actually fulfill any of my sexual fantasies, the ex definitely scored points for originality.
ever day is a valentine's day for all in love couples. even a simple phone call from overseas is already enough to make someone kilig..happy hearts day rafter
Ay, pareho tayo dyan. I'm not a fan of V Day, but I am a romantic person if I say so myself.
And yes, it's ridiculous to spend a thousand buckeroos over two dozens of blood red roses. Tsaka bakit ba mas mahal ang mga bulaklak pag Valentine's Day?
bestfriend, Asus. Speak for yourself. Hehe
katherine, Lahat mas mahal pag February 14. Hehe. Welcome to The Deadbeat Club!
I've said this before and I'll say it again: Valentines sucks.
It sucks, it sucks, and it really sucks. It does, I'm serious.
There, I've said my piece. I feel better now, ehehehe.
For what's it's worth, happy Valentines, man!
andy briones, Not only does it suck, it blows. Hehe
Oh yeah, Valentines blows — big time.
Yesterday was pure hell: the mall was invaded by lovebirds, restaurants were full, and the MRT was still crowded at 9pm. I'm pretty sure businessmen love Valentines, ehehe.
andy briones, Pera lang ang labanan. Hehe. Trapik din along Cuneta Ave. Hehe
!WORD! on the silliness of valentine's day. and no, im not saying this just because i've been single for a millennium. it's just too overrated. tama ka.
i have to give props to your ex too. she knew what buttons to push to make raft3r happy. eh bat ex na sha ngayon? hehe.
Somebody invited my sister out. She said no. Ang corny raw kasi. hehehe
Anyways, V-day is reminder that love works. It may not work for some, but at least I'm assured that it's working for others. :p
judayski, One word: commitment. Hehe
len, You are right on target. Bull's eye, ika nga.
It's fun to watch girls carrying bouquets of flowers everywhere during Valentine's Day. Personally though, mas gusto ko ang chocolates hehehe. Flowers are pretty to look at and all, but they're worthless after a day or two.
wendy, As worthless as the guys na nagbigay sa kanila? Hehe
What an awesome Valentine's Day!
ar-dee-see, Ya think? Hehe
naks... si rafter nag-eat in the point-point...excellent sa girl! dapat nag-try rin kayo ng mix-mix..
belated happy v-day!
hitokirihoshi_kawaii, As in halo-halo? Hehe
kala ko pa naman, "happy ending".. hehehehe
belated happy vday to you too! =)
laieesha, Wala naman happy endings sa mga stories ko eh. Hehe
Hahaha. Di naman siguro lahat. May effort naman yung iba, dumayo pa sa Dangwa.:D
ayos na valentine memory un ah. mas ayos sana kung meron "dessert". nyahaha....
wow...sarap ng kinainan nyo ha sa turo turo...hehehhe...atleast nakatipid ka pa di ba hehehe
wendy, Naku. Isa ako dati sa mga dumadayo pa ng Dangwa. Hehe
the scud, Nyahaha. Gets kita. Hehe
pixie27, Tipid. Sya gumastos, eh. Hehe
oh wow that is one surprise LOL but let me ask, why did raft3r did not have a proper scheduled date with a lady love? hmmm... me and my man did not celebrate v-day too, but even if we were together i'm sure it won't be that big too since everyday is more important to us than commercialized holidays. and good boy for bringing protection! always ready huh?
prinsesamusang, Boy scout. Laging handa. Hehe
papangalanan ko din ba ito gaya noong taga las pinas? hahaha
pete, One more at banned ka na dito sa The Deadbeat Club. Hehe
