Sometimes Valentine%u2019s Day doesn%u2019t always turn out the way you expect it to be.
Have you ever had a whole wonderfully, romantic day planned for your beau and it went horribly wrong? Or perhaps your last minute plans surprisingly turned out spectacularly successful? Either way, your real life Valentine%u2019s Day experiences would simply make you laugh as you reminisce about the good memories.
Valentine%u2019s Day is not too long away, and for some of us we%u2019re just fresh out of romantic ideas! So we thought it%u2019ll be fun to ask our followers and Redsters about their own funny (or embarrassing, maybe?) encounters on this day of love. We%u2019ve gathered a couple of short funny stories, real life stuff that we%u2019re sure will make you laugh, cringe or even tear.
Here are two of our most favourite ones from the lot:
Redster Andrew Chee
decides to bring some spice into his own love life, literally:
%u201CMy funny Valentine%u2019s happened a few years ago. I was crushing on a classmate of mine and I thought it%u2019d be interesting to go over to her place with a surprise I had cooked up. Instead of going for the common gifts that you had to pay money for (we all know when it%u2019s Valentine%u2019s Day, everything is marked up), I got bold and decided to make her some homemade cookies- using my very own recipe. My girl crush at that time was a big fan of spicy food and cookies, so I decided why not put two of her favourite things into one?
It was the wrong move but at that time it seemed like a brilliant, fool-proof plan. I drove all the way to her house on Valentine%u2019s Day and presented her with an entire box of my homemade savoury cookies. She kindly accepted them and I nervously asked her to give one a try. Surprisingly she obliged as she took one and popped it into her mouth%u2026 and that%u2019s when it happened- she started coughing as she asked what were in those cookies. I guess I should not have gambled with a uniquely, original present but just played safe with presents like flowers and chocolates. I%u2019m pretty sure my savoury cookies gift made it the most unforgettable Valentine%u2019s Day for the both of us, in a weird way%u201D.
Ooops! Perhaps two things don%u2019t necessarily go well together even though they%u2019re two of your favourites. But don%u2019t worry, Andrew assures that his then-crush was quick to brush off that awkward situation though she still jokes about those %u2018savoury%u2019 cookies every time they walk past a Famous Amos Cookies outlet.
Another real life tale that made us go %u201CAwww%u201D was Redster Parvin Nair
%u2019s Valentine%u2019s Day surprise:
%u201CI%u2019m a belly dancer and my boyfriend thought of surprising me with a personal belly dancing performance, complete with the outfit and even a little bit of makeup. On the day before Valentine%u2019s Day, he told me that he wouldn%u2019t be able to meet me up for Valentine%u2019s as he had to work late that day (this was all part of his plan). As there was nothing planned for me, I decided to continue with my own plans as normal- I give belly dancing lessons to kids on a part time basis. He knew I%u2019d be at my dance studio so he brought his surprise there. He waited for me in one of the dancing rooms and changed into the belly dancing outfit, complete with the upper garment, skirt and even the shimmering belts! What he didn't know was that the floor length mirror in the studio room he chose was a two way mirror and at the other side of the mirror, I was having class with a group of kids at that present moment. I then got news that I had to switch rooms to the other side, which was the room where my boyfriend was hiding.
My boyfriend was half way practicing his belly dancing moves when the kids and I suddenly barged in! We completely took him by surprise as he certainly did not expect anyone to walk in on him (and he wasn%u2019t supposed to be in the studio in the first place). The students started to let out giggles as they saw my boyfriend in the getup and they caught a glimpse of him busting a move during his practice as well. It was hilarious but really sweet as he performed officially for me%u2026 in front of all the kids and their parents too! It was a much more tamed version than what was originally planned, but it was a great Valentine%u2019s Day surprise nonetheless. Sigh, if only I snapped a photo of him in that belly dancing outfit to preserve the memory%u201D.
We gotta say kudos to your man for being such a great sport, Parvin! The story definitely made us laugh but it was definitely a good twist to the surprise.
