My Funny Valentine

As years pass by, Valentine’s is getting more and more commercialized here in Phnom Penh. It may not be a holiday in the country, but I’ll say it’s more than that. It’s getting bigger and fancier! You’ll see flower vendors in almost every street corner and even the youngest students in the school goes home with a flower in tow from their classmates and friends. Lovely isn’t it?

So, how about my Valentine’s?


Nestle and I never had any solid plans on how we wanted our Valentine’s to be, and to be fair, he had asked me on the things I want to receive or places I want to go. At the end of the line, practicality prevailed. Valentine’s is one of the many days in the year where there are so many promotions to choose from, and when we talk about the prices, they could go sky high depending on what you prefer to do. Going back to my date, we started off surprising each other with simple tokens of love, and though it may not be that pricey like what others get, it’s always the thought that counts.

Here’s what he gave me:

Here’s what I gave him:

Dining will never be out of our list that’s why right after Nestle’s work, we headed to Shabu Shabu at City Mall and what else can you expect – it’s jampacked! We even needed to eat fast from the moment the table was ready, because the movie were going to watch will start at 8pm. So, it took us only about 40 minutes to fill up our big tummies. Such in a hurry.

This Means War with Reese Witherspoon completed our night. I love it and it’s hilarious! Were very lucky to be able to watch it ahead from others in the world, and I am telling you, it’s a MUST watch movie. A big tumbler of caramel popcorn and huge soft drinks while laughing is definitely a great way to end Valentine’s!

I had fun and I enjoyed the simple treats. This one’s down surely to my timeline 🙂

Ooops! I wanna say thank you too to all of my dear students who made effort today. I love you all!
