ok, ok , i need to stop complaining about this new blogger thing.. need to move forward. hehe. tama na yung 2 posts na puro reklamo… ibang topic naman 🙂 yung masaya naman…


Happy Valentines!!! This is one of the day in a year that i always look forward to, not because im looking forward on a date but instead to see happy faces with matching flowers 🙂

kahit saan ako lumingon ang daming flowers talaga… roses, tulips, daisies, malaysian mums, etc.

today its not only hearts day but flowers day too 🙂



There are varying opinions as to the origin of Valentine’s Day. Some experts state that it originated from St. Valentine, a Roman who was martyred for refusing to give up Christianity. He died on February 14, 269 A.D., the same day that had been devoted to love lotteries. Legend also says that St. Valentine left a farewell note for the jailer’s daughter, who had become his friend, and signed it “From Your Valentine”. Other aspects of the story say that Saint Valentine served as a priest at the temple during the reign of Emperor Claudius. Claudius then had Valentine jailed for defying him. In 496 A.D. Pope Gelasius set aside February 14 to honour St. Valentine.

Gradually, February 14 became the date for exchanging love messages and St. Valentine became the patron saint of lovers. The date was marked by sending poems and simple gifts such as flowers. There was often a social gathering or a ball.

In the United States, Miss Esther Howland is given credit for sending the first valentine cards. Commercial valentines were introduced in the 1800’s and now the date is very commercialized. The town of Loveland, Colorado, does a large post office business around February 14. The spirit of good continues as valentines are sent out with sentimental verses and children exchange valentine cards at school.



For me valentines is not just about giving gifts but sharing sincere and unconditional love.

ikaw ano valentines day para sayo??
