Valentine’s Day 2016

It was V day a few days ago; and I got around to doing the post a bit late.

Anyway hope all of you had a great day with your loved ones.

Valentine's day 2016 (4)

This year, it was Chhoriā€™s first V day so we made it special for her by taking a few photos. I always want her to remember this day as a happy time shared with family. I also want her to know that we love her a lot and will be there for her no matter what.

Here are some photos from the day with Chhori. I hope these photos will tell her many stories in the years to come.

Also in the morning, AS made a very yummy breakfast. I have to give him A+ for his effort and the result. He made this nice round pancake with a red heart in the middle accompanied with mixed berry smoothies. It took him quite some time in the kitchen though šŸ™‚

Valentine's Day 2016 (1)

Chhori was very excited and happy about everything. When we put her in front of the breakfast tray, she was so excited that we couldnā€™t stop her from trying to grab everything.

This year for Valentineā€™s we became 3 from 2 and I love it so much. Hope one day in a few years, it will be 4 from 3 and we have a complete family šŸ™‚

Take care everyone and hope to see you with another post very soon.

My Valentineā€™s Day 2015

Normally I love Valentineā€™s Day and as you know from my previous posts from past here , here and here, I plan things for the day in advance.Ā  But when you are as heavily pregnant as I am, you are not as excited about Valentineā€™s Day. All I want these days is to get a good nightā€™s rest and for baby to come to this world safely.

So when AS asked a few days ago, what I wanted to do for Valentineā€™s Day which fell on a Saturday this year, my answer was to stay home and rest. I did get my wish and lots more for sure.

I know Valentineā€™s Day doesnā€™t mean just red roses, cards, chocolates or gifts but it means love, care, hugs and affection and I am so glad to have a partner who showers me with all that and lots more.

As I told you before, I keep waking up in the middle of the night, these days and it is so hard to go back to sleep. So on the morning of 14th, I woke up early (4am) and was struggling to go back to sleep. I was so thirsty as well and to my dismay, the bottle next to my bed was empty so I woke AS and ask if he could get me some water.

What he came back with took my sleep and tiredness away and made me so happy for rest of the day. He had a bouquet of roses and a wonderful card. I am not sure how he manged it but every year he manages to surprise me and make me so happy. He makes me feel like a Princess and he is definitely the best man a woman could ever wish to have by her side.

valentine's day (3)The roses were just perfect and card was heart touching.

It read:

To You,

My Lover, Partner and Friend

on Valentine’s Day

I wish one special word

could describe

all you mean to me…

1 word that would say

parent, friend,lover

all in one

…but since a word like that

doesn’t exist.

I hope you know that

when I say “I love you”,

I mean all that and more…

because you mean

everything ti me.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Anyway after that, he made sure I was comfortable and OK and put something on the TV for me (normally this helps me go back to sleep). I must have drifted back to sleep soon after as I donā€™t know when I fall asleep.

In the morning, we had a nice home cooked breakfast and had a great-relaxed day.

valentine's day (1)This pregnancy is getting to me for sure because, by afternoon I was sleepy again so decided to take a nap. I was awakened by the nice aroma of food. I really did not know what was happening so I went to the kitchen.

My hubby was busy preparing lunch for us and he was almost done. He asked me to relax and served me homed cooked yummy lunch. It was a really great idea than going out this year for sure. The rest of the day we enjoyed each otherā€™s company. My day was so perfect that sometimes I couldnā€™t believe what I have done to deserve a husband like him. Seriously, I couldnā€™t have asked anything more.

valentine's day (2)

I fall deeper in love with him and he is definitely one of the most caring andĀ handsome manĀ that ever walked on Earth. I have to say he is the most important man in my life on this day and he always knows how to make me feel precious and beautiful and I am so blissfully happy to have found the perfect man.

Can you believe this is the last valentineā€™s day that will be between two of us only, then for rest of our life, we will have another addition to our family, our daughter to make our love even stronger,

So how was your Valentineā€™s Day? Hope you all had a blissful day too.

Take care,

Our V day 2014

This post is a few days too late but finally here it isā€¦ I know most of you think Valentineā€™s Day is overrated and I do believe that and here are some of my post from previous years.

But love is not about spending thousands of dollars for your loved one. Rather it is the day to make your loved one feel special.

valentine (2)

As I mentioned on the previous post, my V day started great with my dear hubby showering with me with lots of love. In the morning I got an amazing message on our benchtop with rose petals. It was followed by a warm hug, which absolutely made my day.

valentine (1)

He also gave me a bunch of roses with a balloon with the messages, ā€œI love you.ā€ and ā€œI am crazy about you.ā€

valentine (2)

We went to work together and after work caught up in the city for dinner and a movie.

While I was waiting for AS, I was a bit annoyed that he hadnā€™t turned up even after saying he will be there in 5 minutes. But I couldnā€™t complain when I found out the reason. He bought me another rose, a single one this time. He said, ā€œI donā€™t think you should be walking around without a flower in your hand so I bought you another rose.ā€ Sometimes I wonder what I did to deserve such a wonderful husband.

valentine (7)

After a brief stroll in the city, we went for dinner. It was a Korean BBQ and we ordered pork, chicken with salad and sides.

valentine (5)

The marinated meat was nice and we loved the food. We had a great time.

valentine (3) valentine (6)

After dinner, we went for a movie and went back home on time to relax and rest. It was a simple celebration but it was one of the best days of my life.

The next morning, he came to me when I was getting ready to go out. He gave me a lolly in the shape of a heart and said. ā€œHappy day-after-Valentineā€™s Day.ā€

valentine (1)

He just melted my heart and I fell in love with him all over again. Hope all of you had a great one too.

Take care ,

He knows how to make me smile

They say that the small things in life are important and I really believe in that. I really donā€™t think about big things when I think about happiness but small things always manage to make my day.

I believe that the perfect guy is not one who has the most money or is the most handsome guy you’ll meet. He is the one who knows how to make you smile and will take care of you each and every day until the end of time and that is my hubby for me. AS always manages to do small things that always makes my day. There are so many incidents that his one word or one action had made me smile.

I have decided to document and share them here so I can look back and smile againĀ  šŸ™‚

I have told you before that AS is a very introverted person and sometimes it is hard to make him talk. But with me he is always comfortable and his cheekiness comes out which I love so much šŸ™‚

Normally I make sure we eat healthy and sometimes tell him off when he eats too much junk. One thing we try to do is not to eat dessert or sweets late at night. And as I have told you before, AS loves anything with chocolate.

The other day I baked chocolate cupcakes and it was on the kitchen table.

After dinner, we were watching TV when suddenly he stared a conversation

AS: Babe donā€™t you think those cakes are going off?

Me: No, I just baked them yesterday. They will be fine.

AS: Look they are going off baby so let me finish it now so we donā€™t have to throw them away.

I couldnā€™t do anything but laugh when I looked at his face. Yes, he ended up eating them as I couldnā€™t say no.

Our Story : Our first Valentineā€™s day – Part 17

This is a continuation of my previous post. Please read the previous posts here, Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5 , Part 6 , Part 7 ,Part 8 ,Part 9 , Part 10 , Part 11 , Part 12 ,Part 13 , Part 14. , Part 15 and Part 16

I am sure you all know by now I am a hopeless romantic. I was eagerly looking forward our holiday to Thailand but before that, there was one more celebration. Yes, it was 14th of February and it was our first Valentineā€™s Day. Bubbling with excitement and anticipation, I spent hours thinking what I should do to make the day special. Luckily for both of us, it was our day off so we were planning to spend most of the day Skyping. In addition, I want to make the day memorable and was thinking what I should do to make it special for him. I really wanted to surprise AS with something, as I love surprises.

We both decided that our holiday the following month would be the best Valentineā€™s Day gift we could give each other. I told him not to spend money buying overpriced flowers and I would be happier shopping with that money in Thailand instead. But when he talked to me, I got the feeling that he was keeping a secret and that he was planning something. I had to restrain my excessive curiosity. After all, I wanted to be surprised so I didnā€™t push for any hints.

On my part, I tried to think of a nice way to show him that I loved him. I really wanted to send him a small cupid but I couldnā€™t find anything online that would be delivered to him. So I had to settle for a heart shaped cake with a cupid on it, a card and a rose. I knew that it was not what I really wanted to give him as a first Valentineā€™s Day gift but it was all I could do when we were thousands of kilometres apart.

If he had been here, we definitely would have done it differently. I would have made sure that he had breakfast in bed and we would have spent the day enjoying each otherā€™s company followed by a romantic dinner somewhere nice. Then there would be a bubble bath in a hot tub with aromatic candles flickering on the side. But alas that was just a dream and I had to keep reminding myself that it would happen soon enough when AS moved to Sydney and all I needed to do was to be patience.

So Valentineā€™s Day arrived. The morning seemed more refreshing than usual. I got up early, had my breakfast and finished all the chores to have a free afternoon to talk with AS. I knew AS would still be sleeping and didnā€™t want to wake him up too early. I had already placed my order for him so was expecting it to be delivered around mid-day. I hadnā€™t told him anything as I knew it would be a nice surprise.

After I was done, I logged on to Skype and there was a message from AS. It said,

Wake me up when you see this message.

Wish you a very happy first Valentineā€™s Day my love.

I love you a lot baby.

Ā :-*Ā  :-* :-*

Talk to you soon love.

Looking at the time I knew that he was up late the night before so I decided to wait for him to wake up and come online. I so wanted to talk to him but I knew it would be better for both of us if he was fresh and not tired with lack of sleep. I watched my rerun of the Sex and the City series and enjoyed Carrie Bradshawā€˜s amazing world.

When it was around mid-day, he came online and I was so happy to see him. I was so looking forward to talk to him.

AS: Good morning love.

Me: Morning my dear. Happy Valentineā€™s Day baby; wish you were here and I could have given you big hug and a kiss.

AS: I will be with you soon baby. Just count the days.

Me: I canā€™t wait for Thailand. Few more weeks šŸ™‚.

AS: I know, I am counting too. Why didnā€™t wake me up earlier?

Me: I wanted you to have some rest.

AS: Thank you baby but you could have waked me up at least a few hours ago.

Me: So what is the plan for today?

AS: No plans. Just want to be online with you so we can have a special day.

Me: I love your planĀ šŸ™‚

AS: Good. I do too.

It was such a great feeling to be able to have a Valentine and more important to be loved so much that I thanked god to have given me AS in my life. Love always sounds so clichĆ© until you fall for someone and you realise that everything they told you about love is so true. I couldnā€™t believe that I loved AS so much.

We were having a great afternoon and I was having an awesome time but something was bothering me. It was past midday in AS’s place and still no one had called AS to deliver my gifts. I started getting worried that he was not getting anything and I had also lost my money. I had ordered it online and it was a company that I had used in the past. They had always delivered my order on time but this time I thought they had failed me on this important day. I really wanted him to get the gifts that afternoon when we were together online.

I knew they must be very busy because of Valentineā€™s Day so was holding my silence for another couple of hours before I asked AS if anyone had called. Those hours passed as well and there was no sign of anything so finally I had to ask AS just so that I know what is going on. Normally they call in the morning and deliver by the afternoon but it looked like AS hadnā€™t got any call at all. Otherwise, he would have mentioned it.

Me: Hey did anyone call this morning?

AS: What do you mean?

Me: Just asking if you got any call from anyone this morning like someone you didnā€™t know or a miss call on your mobile.

AS: No, why

Me: No just asking.

AS: You mean did someone call me to give this?

And he showed me the card, cake and flower I had sent him. I was a bit annoyed with him that he didnā€™t tell me that he had received it already. He was waiting for me to bring that up while at my end, I was worried that he didnā€™t have it.

Me: OMG, I canā€™t believe that you didnā€™t say anything to me. I was so worried.

AS: I know but I was waiting for you to tell me.

Me: I am really angry now that you left me hanging so long.

AS: Hahaha come on, I wanted to surprise you and it was worth the reaction I got.

Me: Not fun for me for sure.

AS: Ohoo baby come on. Sorry, that I didnā€™t tell you straight away but thank you so much. I loved the card, the cake and the flowers. I havenā€™t cut the cake yet because I wanted to do it while you were still online.

Me: Still you should have told me as soon as you got it. BTW when did you get that?

AS: A few hours ago when I was talking to you. Remember I went out for a few minutes? That is when they had come. Thank you so much for it baby. It was very thoughtful of you and I loved it so much. But it is not fair because we said no gifts.

Me: I know we did but I just wanted to surprise you, I hope I did.

AS: Of course, you did my love. Thank you so much.

He showed me the cake, the flowers and the card even though I was on Skype and couldnā€™t see it properly. I asked him to describe what the cake looked like.

He said it is pink with pink flower on the top. I was surprised that they delivered the wrong cake so I asked him to send me the photo. When I saw the photo I was shocked. I actually ordered for him this beautiful white vanilla cake with red cupid on the top. Around the cake were red hearts making the cake so meaningful for Valentineā€™s Day.

valentine's day (1)

What he got was a pink heart shaped cake with some pink stuff on the top which didnā€™t look anything like a cupid. If I didnā€™t know what it was meant to be, I would have been super confused. In addition, the hearts around the cake were upside down. I am sure I could have baked a better cake than that. I really donā€™t know what kind of business those people were running but it was surely a disaster.

valentine's day (5)

We didnā€™t like the cake much so I thought I should let them know what happened so I wrote the following email to the company, Thamel online, regarding the cake but they never got back to me. Therefore, I stopped using that company.


Thank you for delivering my gift. Just want to let u know I was a bit disappointed with the decoration of the cake. This cake was more expensive than other cakes and I chose this cake especially because there was a cupid on the top but when he got the cake it didn’t even look like a cupid. I am sending the pics 4 comparison. Hope you will take more care about these things in the future as we sends gifts 4 sentimental value and it is not just a cake for us.


Now coming back to our Valentineā€™s Day. We had a good laugh about the cake. I sent AS the original picture of the cake promising him that my intention had been good. He knew that and told me not to worry about it at all. He cut the cake and told me it was quite sweet but he would definitely have some for sure as I sent it especially for him on our first Valentineā€™s Day.

I couldnā€™t believe that we spent almost 8 hours online talking to each other. Definitely one of the best Valentineā€™s Day of my life.

Then ASā€™s told me something that would make our first Valentineā€™s Day more interesting still. Sometimes love across borders has more than a few hurdles to overcome. He asked me if anyone called or delivered something to me and I was surprised. It was 9pm my time then so he was worried that I didnā€™t receive anything at all.

AS: Did anyone called or leave something for you at the door.

Me: They didnā€™t. I have been in front of the computer all day, with you.

AS: Come on donā€™t lie if you have received something.

Me: I swear nothing came and I am not hiding anything from you.

AS: That is really bad then.

He had placed an order for a Valentineā€™s Day gift for me a few days before to be delivered on this day but I didnā€™t get anything and so he was obliged to ask.

AS: Let me call the company and find out what is happening.

I waited while he got on the phone.

AS: They said that they have delivered it today. They said no one was home so they left it at the door.

I went out and checked and there was nothing there.

Me: You know I was home all day and no one has buzzed or called me. They normally call when no one answers the door so I donā€™t know what is happening baby but thank you so much anyway. Tell me what you had sent. I am just very happy that you sent me something :).

AS: I better keep that a surprised as half of it is already ruined. Ok let me call them and will be back in a minute.

It took him a while but they told him that they were very busy that day and they are still delivering so I might get it in the next few hours. I doubted that as it was 9.30 pm but I didnā€™t say anything. He seemed unhappy about what happened but I assured him that it was OK. I was just glad he had put so much thought into our relationship and tried his best to send something for me.

I talked to him for another hour and went to bed happy. Even though I hadnā€™t received anything and he received the awful cake, we both had thought of each other and we were so much in love that it didnā€™t matter. It was just awesome that we had each other.valentine's day (2)

The gift he sent me didnā€™t come the next day either but came the day after AS emailed the company twice to complain of the lost order. What an awful service that they didnā€™t even pick up the call and had to be emailed to get a response from them.

valentine's day (3)

valentine's day (4)

Finally, I received his Valentineā€™s gift. It was a teddy bear with I Love You written on it, a card and red roses. I was happy to receive them but the company neither apologised nor contacted either of us regarding their mistake. Definitely not a good company that delivers Valentineā€™s Day gift on 16th of February.

The company is called freshflowersandgifts.com.au if you are wondering.

Anyway, as usual our first Valentineā€™s Day was quite an adventure even though both of us were thousands of miles apart Skyping the whole day.

Next Stop Thailand, so see you there with another post soon.

Till then, take care.
