How we spend our Anniversary/Valentine's Day

Valentine/anniversary day was a usual busy workday for David and I. We didn't even have enough time buy gifts for each other or arrange dinner somewhere. Maybe the novelty had worn off...In the past I received potted plants or flower, sweet cards, chocolates and even jewelries. This time though, after our big trip, we mutually didn't feel like giving each other gifts. I am not sure whether this is a good thing or a bad thing.'

We did something though- since Ray wasn't at home, we made a spontaneous decision to just eat some take-aways in Chermside (if Ray was home we normally cook supper)- where he normally picks me up after work. I told him that I wanted to watch a movie called Rendition. He was gracious to oblige, so we went to check out the schedule...6.40 pm (perfect!). so we bought the tickets at 5.15 pm and had first pick of the choicest seats. We ordered and ate our chinese take-away food at the mall, strolled down to Myers and bought a card reader (for my camera) then proceeded to the cinema (Birch, Carroll and Coyle). We were the first ones there. There were just a few people who came it- less than 20! but it was cool.

Verdict- great movie, spellbinding and intense. One of the best I've seen in a couple of years. We both liked it.

We really enjoyed our day- we didn't spend much either- $20 for takeaways and $30 for the movies - $50 in total- so far the cheapest spending for a celebration. When we got home we had a glass each of red wine from the cask.

It was really a blessing in disguise that we didn't get a booking earlier in fancier restaurants. We felt happy and just enjoyed each other's company!
