Valentine's Day's just a few hours/minutes away. Honestly, I feel like it's a bit overrated, but at the same time I feel it's sweet too. Ngeh. For a Muslim like me, it's not encouraged to celebrate such day as the day is actually dedicated to a celebration for the Christians. Everyone has their personal opinions, right?
For me, it doesn't necessary mean that you can only show your expression of love on Valentine's Day. You can do it any other day, by all means. I guess as long as your intention is right.
On the other hand, celebrating the day feels kind of exciting too because you can actually feel the aura in the air, the color, the decoration you see in shopping malls, the overly-expensive-but-gorgeous red roses, stories of how-we-first-met in the papers, the pretty love-shaped cakes and gift boxes, Valentine's Day breakfast/lunch/dinner promotions, the smile you see on the couple's faces, the hope and the dreams.
On this very day last year, my then boyfriend asked for my hand in marriage. Unfortunately, sometimes good things don't last forever, do they? Oh well, there are reasons behind them, I guess. As the Malays would say, ' Ada hikmah di sebalik setiap kejadian. Manusia hanya mampu merancang'.
And hikmah it was because then I realized that I was blessed with amazing girlfriends who tried so very hard to make sure I was still sane. They made sure I was OK and get this, they even made sure my weekends were filled up with dates with them (to make sure I won't be moping around, ngeh). Another hikmah was that I met a lovely guy, and I think this is by far the best decision I've made, insya-Allah.
A few days ago I was watching this on Youtube and I love it instantly. It's sweet like that, you know. So, Happy Valentine's Day, people. Love ya to bits!
