Valentine's Day 2015

Happy Valentine's Day to all my Insta / Facebook and Blogger friends... young, old, married, coupled or happily single Smiley

How do you usually spend your Valentine's Day? I personally think that Valentine's Day is an "overrated holiday". People always seem to see today (February 14) as a time to splurge money to show love via flowers, chocolates and/or jewellery for their significant half.

To me, Valentine's Day is just another day of the year, it is no different from yesterday or tomorrow, except yesterday was Friday and tomorrow will be Sunday Smiley

Hubby and I have been together for so long that we're both agreed that if you truly love someone, you should show and tell that person everyday of the year, not just on one particular day such as today.

Anyhow, just because we don't believe in splurging money on random craps doesn't mean that we don't celebrate at all. 

This morning both of us got in the kitchen, while he prepares breakfast, I'd make us coffee. Together we ate and Casper has some of our leftover.

While I clean up, hubby washed the car and then we went to Scarborough Beach for a stroll up and down The Esplanade with our 4-legged baby, Casper.

We got to the beach about 12pm and there were hardly anyone there, which was just perfect because there were plenty of parking spaces for us *woo hoo*

It was a nice day at the beach today. Slightly windy but sunny day, not as hot as the last few days were. Thank goodness! 

After a short stroll, we decided to grab some Fish & Chips to share. I wasn't particularly hungry, so hubby got enough for himself and a bit extra chips for me to munch on.

Casper of course, waited patiently for us to finish so we could walk some more.

We got home at about 3:30pm, rested a bit and then hubby went straight to the fridge and got himself one of these parfaits (see below) that I made last night and devouring it within minutes!

These Port Wine Jelly-Strawberry Parfaits were an adaptation to Jamie's recipe via her My Baking Addiction website. You can find my adapted recipe at Indochine Taste of Asia's blog. 

Overall, we had a great family day out and would definitely look forward to the next family day-out very soon!
Happy Valentine's Day to you all!
