Doubt thou the stars are fire,
Doubt that the sun doth move.
Doubt truth to be a liar,
But never doubt I love.
– William Shakespeare
Christmas lights were long gone around mid-January but were soon replaced by the bright red heart cut-outs. Come February and you experience a certain magic, if not in the outside air at least inside the shops and malls. Decorated shops with heart-melting messages, flying cupid ready with it’s arrow to hit you and the ecstatic fragrance you smell every time passing around the perfume section makes you fall in love with this month. The month of love, the month of Valentines.
My love-affair with February is somewhat recent and with ‘Valentine’s Day’ in particular. But, there have been times when I dreaded this month. On certain occasions I have even cursed it, increased my liking to all Taylor Swift songs and humming ‘All the single ladies’ and even cried with Bridget Jones feeling lonely without a partner. And now I happily fall in the list of couples who surf the net to find out ‘Romantic things to do on Valentine’s Day’ to the ‘Top 10 passionate gift ideas’ and more. Wow!
But this time my search produced some intriguing and hilarious results. I am sure you would fall off your seats laughing just as I did, so buckle up tight and read on…
I am asking the same question as Justin Bieber to the super market chain ‘Cooperative’ about their Ad on British eggs “What do you mean?”
Seriously, what do you mean?
Conservative groups in Pakistan condemned Valentine’s Day saying its contrary to their traditions. While the conservative group in India that shared the same sentiments with its neighbour seems to be hit by the cupid this year. Where one group has decided to set up a selfie point in Mumbai and decided to decorate it with heart shaped balloons for couples to take pictures, the other group has decided to dump their anti-Valentine’s Day movement. Have they really changed? I doubt.
Underwhelming Picture Sharing
The Guardian invited its readers to share their underwhelming Valentine’s Day pictures. That’s what we call being different. And of course, the readers did share their disappointing pictures of which I found this one the most disappointing.
