Why I didn’t buy a rose…
You have been reading it a lot on Facebook and also on morinn’s blog, Valentine’s day is one of the most commercial celebrations of the whole year. While there is usually a decrease in price for gifts on Christmas or sales on practically everything for the new year celebrations, “loving or cute objects” have an unexplained price rise for this day, the 14th of February….
Specially the roses! Yeah, on normal days, a rose is usually sold at about Rs20-Rs30 but the same thing gets 2 to 3 times more expensive!!! I am no economics expert but should not their price go down because of the high demand?
I believe that there should not be a special day to celebrate with your girl friend or boy friend… For some couples, the 14th February is an excuse to shower additional love to their better half… Fortunately, things are not like that for Dhaneesha and myself…
For example, last year we had an exceptional dinner on the streets, eating noodles and “boulettes” on the streets of China Town since everything was closed by the time we left the cinema hall lol!
It was again exceptional too, you will read why lol.
Since I haven’t met Dhaneesha since one week, I picked up her home early in the afternoon, as any other day. We first went to KFC and then to Star Curepipe to watch my cousins from the film Avatar.
As you can see, we are entitled to a reduced price, lucky DCDMC people 😛
Wonderful film indeed! After the movie, we walked to the parking, stepped into the car and you know what?
A car breakdown!
The car did not want to start! The battery was down for some reason! I called the towing service which sent someone in less than 15mins. He “re-boosted” the car’s energy by connecting its battery to another battery through an electric cable… Unfortunately, he did not have a USB connection 😛 The car immediately turned on.
We quickly bought 2 burgers from a nearby snack and drove away to the heart of Curepipe where I tried to take some shots. Finally, I dropped her back home…
Oh yeah, I forgot about the gifts… I got hmmm hmmm, hmmm, hmmmmm and hmmmmm. Thanks swthrt!
And that’s the end of the story, without any rose… Ain’t I romantic? 😛
Nevertheless, here are some roses, directly from my garden. They are for Dhaneesha, of course!
With these words, my wishes again go to Dhaneesha : Happy Valentine’s Day and to everyone reading this blog… Hope that you enjoyed yourselves, hopefully without spending too much!
As I said last year, everything is dou lol!
