Valentine’s Day Dinner @ High Society

Purple bouquet of flowers delivered to my office. Most memorable – the china delivery man called and said he couldn’t locate my office building and asked me to come down to collect the bouquet. Love was very pissed and he thinks the delivery man deliberately did that so he could shorten the time and do more deliveries. Oh well…

We usually celebrate with a huge feast at some hotel buffet after work but since this year’s falls on a Thursday, we thought of feasting on Friday instead so we can spend the whole night away without worrying to work the next day. The plan after work was to meet up with my Malaysia cousins whom came to Singapore for CNY visit at MBS, but due to the rain, we were unable to meet up, therefore, Mr.LTT and I went to find dinner ourselves, settled at High Society.

I didn’t know they only serve Valentine’s Day meal and that set meal cost $145++! Unexpectedly, we spent our Valentine’s Day meal at High Society.

That’s not the end of the episode, we waited for nearly 2 hours for the entire course meal to be served and the waiter only told us that they are short of chefs in the kitchen in the middle of our wait. It’s like i thought it’s Valentine’s Day and you guys should know that people (or rather couples) will be dining out. What’s the point of offering a Valentine’s Day Course Meal when you are not prepared.

Well, when the bill came, we said we are not going to pay the 10% service charge. At least the saving grace was that they offered a discount and compensate with two complimentary cupcakes.

Reached home and saw this postcard in my mail! Love from Steph during her Taiwan trip!
It feels good so loved to receive handwritten cards, those are rare gems now. <3

Valentines’ Day Dinner @ Shangri-la, The Line

The day started off with a morning surprise of a bouquet of flowers sent to my office despite my *NO FLOWERS* warnings.
I’m not a flower-fan nor do i know how to admire them, when i receive flowers, i simply take a look and chuck it off beside me and when i reached home, i’ll just put it in the fridge.

I’m quite a practical person, so i would prefer something more practical which i’m able to use or wear it everyday.
PS: i don’t mind money notes folded into flowers thou

Our 2nd year celebration for Valentine’s day and both occasions are met with obstacles.

Last year coincides with Chinese New Year, so we have to pre-celebrate it while this year, he is on reservist!!
Luckily, he’s able to book out for in the evening before rushing back to camp at 23:59.

Being a self-proclaimed romantic guy, he had everything planned beforehand.

A table reserved at Shangri-la’s The Line buffet where we can eat our hearts out.

The whole restaurant was romantically set-up with rose petals sprinkled on the floors and each table was given a complimentary stalk of rose!

Even the desserts are specially decorated with heart shapes!

What i remembered was i kept eating the Alaskan crab leg which was super thick, cold and SALTY! I like! Now i’m craving it as i type.

Oh! and the valentine buffet price (steeper than usual) includes unlimited flow of champagne!

Me with my bouquet of flowers

The damage on his pocket and yes, he drank Tiger beer again! =_=

And by the way, if you think the story ends nicely here, IT DOESN’T!!

While we were enjoying the buffet half way, my colleague called and said she doesn’t have the key to lock the office and i realized i’m the one who took the key the previous night and forgot to put it back!

So in the end, due to my carelessness, i had to rush back office after the dinner to lock the freaking office door!
<3 accompanied me before rushing back to his camp and both of us were so sad that we are unable to spend the night longer together =(

Nevertheless, i had a nice valentine's day celebration with <3, hopefully next year nothing goes in our way!!

Happy Valentines' Day everyone! Cheers!
