I had a date last Valentine’s Day. With a guy.
(The fourth lady is not in the picture above because she’s the one wielding the camera.)
No wonder some random dude at the bar got jealous of Jefrey for having so many girls. Actually told him so. And also told him that he would make a great husband someday, though it probably wasn’t because he had so many girls. I think.
But I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s start with the dinner first. Cate, Tatsie, Gay, Maya and I went to Jef’s place where we feasted on pizza, chicken, cupcakes, and wine. Pizza Hut’s heart-shaped pizza + Twelve Cupcakes’s red velvet cupcake heart topper = perfect for Hearts’ Day! 😀
After stuffing ourselves full, making toasts to Valentine’s, and nearly dying of laughter from the pictorials, we headed out to Clarke Quay, Singapore’s bar district, which was just a walk away.
Cate and Tatsie suggested this bar called Paulaner where you could get 2 martinis for the price of 1. I loved that the place had a live band. We switched tables twice until we found one that was directly in front of the stage, giving us easy access to the band and the dance floor.
The band’s singer asked us what we wanted them to sing, and Jefrey asked for “Clarity.” The singer said they would sing another song first before giving him his request, and said he made a great choice. When she belted out the song, we danced and sang along.
At first, we were the only ones dancing (as well as that stranger who talked to Jefrey) but as the night wore on, more and more people started to join in on the fun as well. When the dance floor was packed, the band’s singer got out her phone and started shooting a video of the audience. Whoa. Seems a bit backwards, yeah? 😛
We would have wanted to do that all night, but we are not as young and energetic as we used to be, so we had to start walking back to Jef’s place at around 3am.
It was a really fun Valentine’s group date. Who says singles can’t enjoy Valentine’s Day too?
P.S. For more pictures of Jefrey with girls wrapped around him, including one from our college days, click here. I know, right? Lucky son of a gun.
