Five hundred twenty-five thousand minutes. How many of that time do you think of your loved ones?
For me, I have to be honest, with all the hustle and rush living in a highly stressful urban city like Singapore probably less than 20% of that Five hundred twenty-five thousand minutes. Valentines Day is thus a timely reminder to "remember the love" as so aptly mentioned in the lyrics of the song "Season of Love".
Many of us have different ways to spend this time with our love. Some prefer to have a lavish dinner at some posh restaurant. Some will catch a lovey-dovey movie in a couple-seat at the cinema. Or maybe you are just like me who will go the traditional route of buying a simple gift. Regardless which is your preference, it is always the time together that really counts.
Even a simple gift buying can be an uphill battle to decide what to buy. For this season, I have compiled some of my favourite "love" theme gift for 2020.
