Finding What's Missing

I'm a bit jaded about Valentine's Day. I have been in a long relationship before but I still see it as a commercialized event. If you asked me what I did on Valentine's Day, I'd tell you I went to work and went home early and slept the day away. It was refreshing. I missed the traffic and the PDA's too! Hahaha!

Maybe my heart is missing because lately my mind's on overdrive. I've been too focused on work that what's left of my so-called social life is distributed to family and really close friends. Everytime I feel the usual heart-thumping followed by cheek-flushing, I'd distract myself. No, I am not giving up on love. I still feel it. I think I just need a jumpstart.

It wasn't a boring Valentine's Day though. I wore black because we had this famous couples costume contest at work and my friends and I joined (and we won!).

Ate Dennis as Harry Fotah and me as Cho Va

hippie (John Lamon and Yoko Sayo) and geeky couples

My shift was actually fun that day. I just enjoyed my officemates' company and it's all good. See more pictures here.

I actually found bits and pieces of my missing heart when I saw this PostSecret Valentine video:

If that doesn't work, just click this link. This really touched me. May we find the love that we need and want, not just on Valentine's, but always.
