Every year I take time to pen down my thoughts about our relationship. We are celebrating our 9th anniversary this year. I think I am not going to repeat what I wrote last year but just to say, he still does those things I’ve mentioned before till today. And for that, I’m really thankful to have him by my side.
A relationship is not based on feelings alone. It is by choice. It is by choice that we choose to stay with each other despite our flaws. It is by choice that we choose each other as our partner, our companion. It is by choice that we choose to stay committed to each other. As much as I would like the feeling of butterflies fluttering in my stomach to stay, you know it is pretty impossible for a 9 years relationship. Haha.
In fact, it is by choice that we continue to put in effort in our relationship. It is by choice that we choose not to walk away when communication break down. It is by choice that we choose to open up to each other, fix it and solve it.
So Prawn brought me to Boiler after my work (yeah. need to work on a sat) for dinner as our 9th anniversary and birthday dinner.
Picture taking while waiting for our food to come.
Luckily got apron as the whole meal was pretty messy. lol.
And here comes our beer!
Here’s my beerita. A cocktail with an upturned Corona beer.
Tasted really good! I love it so much!
Our food in bags are here!!
I think we are supposed to throw everything on the table but we didn’t.
A photo with our food before things get messy! Btw, beer goes really well with seafood.
Check out the lobster! It’s hugggeeeee and very tasty!!
And tasty mussels and prawns!
Falling in love is easy. Staying in a relationship isn’t. Thank you for for choosing me over and over again all these years!
My valentine is a practical man. He doesn’t buy me roses and he doesn’t draw me a card all the time. But he would do it occasionally if he has the time because he knows what makes me happy. I love flowers but not bouquet but I appreciate anything handmade or handwritten. He once sewed me a bunny doll which he claimed it to be the ugly miffy. He had also handwritten a card for me before and delivered a short “speech” on why he loves me upon my request. He often sings for me because I love his singing.
This year is the 9th year we are celebrating Valentine’s Day together. Every year we wanted things to be simpler but things got even simpler year by year. lol. He said he would cook a nice steak for me and then watch a movie together.
V day or not, he would still cook for me and I love it! He is very meticulous when he cooks. I took care of the chopping board and the washing while he took care of all the cooking.
We bought Angus Ribeye Steaks which cost much more than the other steaks but he wanted to pamper me on V day. ^-^
I love the steaks and I love the man who cooks it for me.
You see, this man always know how to capture me at my prettiest.
He also wouldn’t mind taking photos with me. Sometimes he would be the one who requested it!
V day is only a day of celebration but our relationship takes years to form a solid foundation. He can buy you the most expensive bouquet and treat you to the most romantic meal you can ever have, but money can’t buy love. As long as we are together and having fun, it is the greatest gift that you can ever give to me.
Before I fell
in love with words,
with setting skies
and singing birds,
it was you I fell
in love with first

It’s hard to believe that 8 years just went past like that. I can still remember vividly how we met during our common module in polytechnic, the first conversation we had, the jacket he always wear, the first time he called me cutie pie and I ran away, the very awkward first date when we shared a spoon and a straw, the first gift he gave and the first song he sang to me. It’s as though everything just happened yesterday and fast forwarded till today, 8 years of relationship we had.

You see, couples like us who have been together for more than 5 years, start to crack their head hard over what to do on birthdays. I’ve been thinking about what have we not done for the past 7 years and suddenly the idea of prawning came to my head. I’m glad we usually don’t do the expensive kinda dates often, leaving us with some more to-do ideas on birthdays.
So I brought Prawn to go prawning (pun intended. hehe) at Fish @ Big Splash! It’s $18 per hour, $28 for 2 hours. And we decided to stay on for 2 hours.

Happy National Day to all Singaporeans!
This year I didn’t stay at home to catch the NDP parade. I went out with Prawn and we caught a movie Guardians of the Galaxy. After the movie, we decided to buy some food and to catch fireworks near the Esplanade area. Unfortunately the road was blocked by SPF. They directed us to Bay Front instead. We were rather intimidated by the crowd so we decided not to watch the fireworks and go Suntec Mall for a walk instead!
Then we spotted a crowd outside the mall. Were they waiting for fireworks here? It seems like a pretty good spot. So we camped here and ate our food.
8pm finally arrived. We saw reflections of the fireworks but there was nothing up in the sky as it was all blocked by the tall buildings. So this wasn’t a good spot! Prawn and I quickly moved down and at last, we caught the fireworks for the first time together!
Fellow Singaporeans cheered along as we saw the beautiful fireworks. What a blessing in disguise. It sure feels good to be watching the fireworks together!
After a really tiring seven days work week, my holiday has finally begun!! Thanks to Ling, I’ve gotten a 1-for-1 buffet dining voucher at Rise Restaurant. You know, yummy food has always been my living source. I would curse and swear if I have a not so good meal. To begin my holiday with a filled stomach sounds totally wonderful! I haven’t brought out my camera to shoot for quite a long while. Yesterday was quite an exception.
