For everyone passing by this blog today or this week, have a wonderful and lovely day with your loved ones or friends! May love fill your life everyday!
How would you celebrate it? Or are you one of those who refused to fall for the merchants' traps?
For us, we believe that Love fill our lives every single day and we do not need any special day to remind us to cherish each other. Valentine's Day has become too overrated in our humble opinions. Price of Red Roses shot up by a hundred fold. Chocolates are snapped from the shelves in every stores. And those poor men worry weeks before the actual event over what presents to buy and the amount of money that they have to spend... flowers, gifts, chocolates, restaurants, the list goes on. I'm just glad I'm not a man and get to be pampered for a day.
I recall a particular episode in Gordan Ramsay's show when he tried to save a restaurant. One advice he gave that I remembered and will always keep in mind is, "No matter how bad a restaurant is, there are two days in a year that it will be fully booked. Christmas and VALENTINE'S DAY". This goes to show you how important this day is for the restaurateurs. They could probably cover months of their expenses based on this day's earnings?!
So, Ur Resident Chef has made Mr K's favourite Chocolate Truffles(with a slight twist) for his present. I think a handmade gift beats any commercial presents or giftcards ten times over. Don't you think it's great to be able to bake and cook?
