Love - Happy Valentine's Day

It's Valentine's day.
Despite having nothing planned tonight, no fancy dinner, no carefully planned home cooked meal, not even an impromptu one...it made me think of love.

Today, SC didn't buy me no flowers, no chocolates, no branded goods, but he has done a lot to support me and my exhibitionist antics of blogging.

Normally, he's really careful with how we spend money (Regardless of whose money it is. His money, my money, is our money), but he encouraged me to get a DSLR, pushed me to upgrade to a better camera or lenses if necessary, never flinched at the expensive meals I dragged him to try (despite truly loving Cafe de Coral, Fairwood and Ajisen Ramen), taught me (a huge idiot and a slow learner) basic photoshop tricks to improve my photos, never complained about food getting cold as every dish get photographed from every possible angle, doesn't get embarrassed when I did my weird poses photographing food in public, doesn't mind being posted in my blog in various stupid poses...

...always willing to hold food in position for a longggg time while waiting for 29,876 shots to be fired...
Wakayama - IFC, Central, Hong Kong

...or hold a slurping pose...
Sichuan Hot Cup Noodle 東門町 - 正宗重慶酸辣粉 - Kwai Fong

...or hold a stretchy string of cheese off a pizza cone...
Cafe Pascucci

...went to dine with me despite swollen gums from recent wisdom tooth extraction...
Bistecca
...ordered and ate a whole fish despite his pure hatred towards anything with bones...

...joined super long queues under the rain, in humid summer heat to try "famous" eateries...
Macau - Waiting for Noodles

...and generally SUFFERED...a lot...
Paisano Pizza
....all for me to get my money shots.

Now, all of the above, I think, is LOVE.
^_^

SC, there is no word to express my gratitude for all your support.
This blog is what it is today because of you.
Happy Valentine's Day.

Hi Rita,

Thks for the sweet post - it has reminded me to see deeper than the V-Day celebration itself

Today I'm sick, cant do any love theme cooking/baking, was so envious with many other bloggers with their fancy creations today

Also no celebration whatsoever all along in regards to V Day
(DH never appreciates this day *sigh*)

But after reading your post, I feel much much better
I have my V Day everyday everytime DH and my 2kids say I Love U to me
and not to mention all small little things they have done to me all along and so many more to come :)
Also not to forget my other family members and my dear friends who love me too :)

Thks again and happy Valentine's Day! :)
