Valentine’s Day fell on a weekend (for most) this year. It was a working Saturday for me, so while I was stuck at the office, Hubby was at the KFC monthly activity. At around 10:30am, he called me to go down the office building and I just knew he had something for me. I was right.
|three red roses!|
That afternoon was my first physiotherapy session, so I headed to the hospital right after work. By the end of the 30-minute session, Hubby and Caila had already arrived at the hospital and were waiting for me at the lobby. We then headed to another hospital where Caila had a 6:30pm appointment; she had been having cough and fever on and off since Thursday night, and the Voltaren and Adol we were giving didn’t seem to be helping. While waiting, Hubby and I talked as to whether we should have dinner someplace after, and if so, where. We suggested a variety of restaurants, but in the end, we just went home. The reason? We spent too much time at the hospital! You see, we arrived at 6:10pm, the doctor saw Caila at 7:20pm (almost an hour after her scheduled appointment!), we went to the Pharmacy for the prescribed medicines at 7:50pm, and was finally served 45 minutes later! By the time we left the hospital, it was almost 9 o’clock. Fed up with all the time we wasted by just waiting, we decided to reschedule our date for the following day.
The next day (Sunday), our original plan was to go to mass, have dinner, and then buy groceries. So after work, we went to St. Mary’s Church for the 6pm mass, then headed to Deira City Centre. As we got out of the lift in the mall, Hubby said he wanted to go to the Nike store first to check out the recently released Jordan shoes. I just rolled my eyes, made a silly face to tease him, and followed. We saw Jenny and her sisters on their way for their post-Valentine’s dinner so we chatted a bit, and then we headed to Nike. And then we bumped into Joel and Lhen, who did a great job of convincing us to forget our dinner plans and join them in watching a movie. When they told me it was a spy movie, I knew I wouldn’t like it because for sure there would be violence. But since I was outnumbered, I just went along. So instead of a sit-down dinner at a restaurant, Hubby and I ended up having panini from Tim Horton’s, a hotdog, nachos, and slush from the cinema food stand.
On Monday, we went back to DCC and went straight to PF Chang’s where we ordered their Four-Course Menu.
|Egg Drop Soup (one each)|
|Chicken Lettuce Wraps (starter)|
|Kung Pao Chicken (entree 1)|
|Honey Shrimp (entree 2)|
|Banana Spring Rolls (dessert)|
After Hubby paid the bill, we headed to Carrefour to shop for groceries.
And that’s how our Valentine’s was spent in 3 days =)
