A Valentine Story

As usual, the special Valentine’s Day is celebrated every year on the 14th day of February. This year, the celebration is made even more special when it has riled up a hoo-ha in this country as reported in  both the print media and the electronic media.

Recently, a youth leader from a political party proposed  a Valentine’s Day crackdown to curb sexual immorality from taking place. His good intention was somehow being responded with criticism from his counterparts of other political parties including the ones from his party’s alliance. It did not just stop there. When a religious teacher urged a group of younger people not to celebrate Valentine’s Day, she actually linked the immorality caused to the culture found in Christianity. A few political figures stood up to rebut her sermon.

Despite all the hoo-ha, Valentine’s Day actually makes a young man  to recall his memory of the last Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day  coincidentally fell on the same day as the Chinese Lunar New Year of that year. This young man who was in his final year as a varsity student chose not to go back to be with his family members on the first day of Lunar New Year. Instead, he took a bus to Kuala Lumpur to buy a Valentine gift with the hope to impress his heart-throb when the day would become midnight. At night, after the clock struck twelve on the 14 February 2010, the young man set his journey of sending the gift on foot. Actually, he was a shy man. But he had made up his mind to conquer all his shyness and fears to accomplish his mission…

Eventually, that man had actually failed to win the heart of his heart-throb. He felt extremely down. His final year as an undergraduate student was almost as good as collapsed. He almost flunked his final year paper which could have cost his on-time graduation…

Today, this man is doing quite well as a working professional. He does not really care whether he has a girlfriend or not. He has somehow found out that romance is made in Heaven. A decent girl is meant for another decent guy. Therefore, it is important to maintain one’s decency. He has actually learned this while watching the film, ‘Aku Masih Dara’.

    At this stage of life, what I can say is that, romance is just solely a ‘dessert’ of our life.
    What gives you the most satisfaction? Main course! (like what you are working on it)
