Today is a double Celebrations for those who celebrate Valentine's Day and Chap Goh Mei. We don't celebrate these occasions but instead we will have our all in one celebration two days later on my birthday.
The boy's school declared "cuti peristiwa" today in conjunction with Chap Goh Mei. We love cuti peristiwa as it means no replacement school needed for the said declared holidays.
This morning we had a bit of revision done before heading out for lunch. We stopped at our favourite air-conditioned cafe nearby and took a peek from our car only to spot heads, heads and only mountains of human heads through the tinted glass partition of the cafe, full house it was.
The boy was famished so we ended up in Pizza Hut for a quick lunch. The boy spotted couples dining at the restaurant:
Boy: Ooo, mommy, today is Valentine's Day hor and look, so many couples here.
Mom: We are a couple what and you are my Valentine.
Boy: No, daddy is your valentine, I am not.
Mom: No, you misinterpreted the word "Valentine". It simply means your loved ones. Am I your loved one?
Boy: Of course yes!
Mom: Then next time hor, when you take your mom out for a meal on Valentine's Day, don't feel awkward ok? I am your valentine (loved one), remember?
Boy: *nodding his head while enjoying his bowl of mushroom soup*
