Valentine's Day

For most guys the dreaded V-day is upon us again. Its not that the guys do not love their partners/spouse/gf on this day nor do they dread the celebration of their love on this day. Its more of the commercialism that comes part and parcel of the day. If I wanted to buy roses last week it would inevitably cost me only about RM50 for a dozen ( I think), but if I were to do so tomorrow on v-day well.. its gonna cost at least double that minimum!

From a business point of view I can understand it. Its a real opportunity to make money! Scratch that... make a HELL LOT of money :) But pity us poor buggers who have to shell out for presents, flowers and dinner... sigh...

BUT as they say, one can never put a price on the happiness of your partner... trust me... a happy gf/wife/partner is the best thing you could ever wish for. If she is happy... trust me you will be happy too! :)

You can always tell yourself that you don't need to spend that kind of money on her AND she may agree with you... BUT remember she is a woman and a woman LOVEs to be wooed and showered with gifts and love... OOh and if you can do it in her office it would be EVEN better. You are sooo gonna get some that night! hahaha :)

NAh... I'm not trying to put a hamper on the day nor the need to spend the money on her. Please do so.. I think I will too :) Like I said be fore a happy GF is a happy Ken!

So Happy valentine's day to you all!

I'll share something I got from one of my friends...

To My Friends Who Are...........SINGLE
Love is like a butterfly. The more you chase it, the more it eludes you. But

if you just let it fly, it will come to you when you least expect it. Love can
make you happy but often it hurts, but love's only special when you give it

to someone who is really worth it. So take your time and choose the best.

To My Friends Who Are............NOT SO SINGLE
Love isn't about becoming somebody else's 'perfect person.' It's about
finding someone who helps you become the best person you can be.

To My Friends Who Are............PLAYBOY/GIRL TYPE
Never say 'I love you' if you don't care. Never talk about feelings if they

aren't there. Never touch a life if you mean to break a heart. Never look
in the eye when all you do is lie. The cruelest thing a guy can do to a girl is
to let her fall in love when he doesn't intend to catch her fall and it works
both ways...

To My Friends Who Are............MARRIED
Love is not about 'it's your fault', but 'I'm sorry.' Not 'where are you',
but 'I'm right here.' Not 'how could you', but 'I understand.' Not 'I
wish you were', but 'I'm thankful you are.'

To My Friends Who Are............ENGAGED
The true measure of compatibility is not the years spent together but how
good you are for each other.

To My Friends Who Are............HEARTBROKEN
Heartbreaks last as long as you want and cut as deep as you allow them to
go. The challenge is not how to survive heartbreaks but to learn from them.

To My Friends Who Are............NAIVE
How to be in love: Fall but don't stumble, be consistent but not too
persistent, share and never be unfair, understand and try not to demand,
and get hurt but never keep the pain.

To My Friends Who Are............POSSESSIVE
It breaks your heart to see the one you love happy with someone else but
it's more painful to know that the one you love is unhappy with you.

To My Friends Who Are............AFRAID TO CONFESS
Love hurts when you break up with someone. It hurts even more when
someone breaks up with you. But love hurts the most when the person you
love has no idea how you feel.

To My Friends Who Are............STILL HOLDING ON
A sad thing about life is when you meet someone and fall in love, only to
find out in the end that it was never meant to be and that you have wasted years on someone who wasn't worth it.

If he isn't worth it now
he's not going to be worth it a year or 10 years from now
. Let go.....

My wish for you is a man/woman whose love is honest, strong, mature,
never-changing, uplifting, protective, encouraging, rewarding and unselfish.

Life and such...

Gong Xi Fa Cai to all of you out there! I know its a little bit late being after chap goh meh already but what the heck... I still wanna wish you all the wealth, health and wisdom.

CNY this year was a more solemn affair. One week before CNY, I found out my cousin passed away in OUG from a car accident. He was thrown from his car and pinned underneath it. He was only 35. Married with 2 young kids. this is the second loss we had in our family in a space of 6 months... it was one week from his birthday as well... sigh... Rest in peace Sng Tien Piao... We will always miss you... say hello to Tua Ee up there for me.

The only good thing this CNY was that my sister was back from Italy with her hubby Marcello and we all went to Pangkor for our usual CNY trip there. It was good to have the whole family around for holidays.

Ah well.. my thoughts are a bit disjointed...

Perak has also fallen back to the BN party. So sad... But I guess thats what u get when u have stupid ppl in your party. Frogs all of them! The worst had to be the Hee lady. What a running dog! I hear even the market ppl refuses to sell vegetables to her family. Thats how bad it is there. The other 2 fellas was expected to jump but this woman really took the cake. I would venture to say she if the first woman in Malaysia to bring down any ruling government body!

I don't know what this means for Perak but I hope it will get better. It was getting better with the Pakatan government. Now I don't know...

Daulat Tuanku... I believe you have not listened to your rakyat... nevertheless... Daulat Tuanku!
