But this is not what i really want to blog about. It was more of what day is it because it's the Chinese Valentine's Day - Chop Goh Mei, which marks the end of Chinese New Year.
What i want to point out is that darn popular proposal that happened last week. I believe no one would forget David Tan, the Malaysian Cassanova who made headlines by proposing to his girlfriend, Kelly Tan with the "RM40,000" billboard and RM14,000 engagement ring! Click HERE for more info.
This is the numbskull who raised the level of expectation of women or around for mere mortal gentlemen. It's foreseeable in the future, if guys can't live up to expectations, girls will said,"How come you cannot be like David Tan?! So romantic!"
Many would argue (including girls) that the money would have been better well spent on things like a house or a car. We can only imaging being able to spend that much at one go! Joanne Lee said it would be more romantic if they both flew to Paris and he made the proposal there with the money.
But then again, it's his money, his life, his girl (soon-to-be wife), his way and his ad. Perhaps he takes the cake for outrages proposals ever done in Malaysia; he deserves the credit.
Anyway, i heard my colleagues joking about this, before the news was published, and if Kelly were to say yes, David, in a month's time, would splurge more cash and put this up.
For me, a hopeless, pessimitic romantic, i can't imaging myself doing anything romantic, what more something this huge, for a girl. I don't see such future for me, i think.

But I cant help falling in love with you
Shall I stay

If I cant help falling in love with you..."
