Yesterday afternoon, I was so nervous.
I had asked her the day before if she would be my Valentine's Day date, and she said "YES"!
It was a chance I bet many guys would have given their left nut for, but the lucky one this time was me.
There I was getting all nervous preparing for the big night.
I took 20 minutes and picked my favourite white shirt.Then I sprayed on myself the perfume that all the ladies always tell me makes me smell irresistible.
Then I jumped into my little car and braved the traffic jams all the way to pick her up from her home.
She hopped into my car and we started driving to the restaurant which brought me to my next problem.
I wasn't quite sure where exactly to take her.
At first I thought perhaps I could take her to Rasa Sayang Hotel's Spice Market Buffet that costs over a hundred bucks per head... but I knew buffet dinners wouldn't be romantic enough.
Now people tend to relate romantic dinners with fine dining.
I was considering taking her to a French or even German restaurant... but in the end I just decided that the right thing to do would be to take her for something that no other Valentine's Day date would take her...
Now I don't know about you guys but there is nothing more romantic that watching food cook with a hot pot in a very noisy environment... seriously...
Okay okay fine fine.
Here's the truth.
My friends and I go to Golden Gate Steamboat every Wednesday for our weekly steamboat ritual, something we call Steamboat Day!
It just so happens that this year's Valentine's Day falls on a Wednesday ie Steamboat Day.
Now Valentine's Day is cool and all, it's nice to take a girl out dating but if you had to pick between Steamboat Day and Valentine's Day... you just HAVE to PICK STEAMBOAT DAY!
So that's right... even the beautiful girls in our group threw away their Valentine Dates just to come for STEAMBOAT DAY!!!
One good example is Linsey over here.
See how happy she was to be at Steamboat Night instead of at Haagen Dazs with her date.
So there you have it.. that's how I spent my Valentine's Day.
To the guys who Linsey rejected for her Valentine's Day date: I'm sorry dudes... it's just bad luck that Valentine's Day this year clashes with an even more important day. She didn't mean to... and she does like you... muster the courage to ask her out again okay?
