Valentine's Day 2010

How was your Valentine's Day? My Vday was simple yet very sweet. Since Lunar New Year falls on Valentine's day, we had to celebrate it earlier. Saturday night was NYE so we couldn't go out..had to stay home and pray the Gods and then after midnight, it was time to go to the Temple and pray some more. Half of Sunday was spent at the Temple as well and the other half, i helped out at the resto..so no choice but to do it on Friday night.

we ate at The Keg in Old Montreal. They could not take reservations for the occasion so we had to wait for 10-15 minutes, which isn't all that bad. i told myself i would enjoy the food so much more after the waiting and i did. =) i didn't take any pix of our food because there were a lot of couples staring..especially the table beside us. there sat an asian couple of around 50 years of age, they were sitting their backs to us but every now and then, they would turn around and just STARE at us without blinking. it was very very rude and awkward. besides that, we really enjoyed our dinner. food is always good at The Keg..i love that place, not too expensive for the quality of the food served.

here's what we got each other for Valentine's Day
a lot have asked on my formspring
small box = his Valentine's gift
big box = his early 8th anniversary gift, which is in March...but since he liked them so much, i just bought it at the same time as his Vday gift. =]
can you guess what i got him?
Louis Vuitton Inventeur Damier Graphite reversible belt
can be worn for work [black side] or play [damier side]
very versatile, he likes it a lot
it matches with his Damier Graphite wallet i bought him while we were vacationing in Hong Kong. aww we match too, i like Damier and he likes Damier Graphite [cheesy i know]
he told me this year he wasn't going to get me a Vday gift for X reason..i was ok with that. it doesn't bother me because he buys me random presents from time to time so..i was like ok whatever. on saturday, we had nothing planned so we went out for a casual lunch at Amigo 168 in chinatown [by the way their salt & pepper pork chops are pretty much the best in town]. he asked me what i wanted to do the rest of the afternoon so i said..i dont know. he told me lets go shopping and i practically refused because i had nothing in mind that i needed to get and i was sure i was gonna spend on random things if i ever went. he asked me: "so you dont want your Vday Present?" i was soooooooooo happy because i knew what he was gonna get me...he's asked me before if he was ever gonna get me a gift, what would i want between an LV Palermo GM or Christian Louboutin shoes? of course i skipped the bag because i'm still very in love with my Trevi...so i told him i wanted a first pair of Chris Loubs [i only had a pair of wedges and they're not considered like real Loubs because Louboutin is all about the sexy HEELS, hello!?!]

after we were done eating, we headed over to Holt Renfrew to check out what they had. my boyfriend picked out his favorite, the Rolando 120 in glossy black patent leather. he has good taste! ^^ they were also one of my favorites. i wanted the Very Prive, but he said they are peeptoes and are only good for summer whereas the Rolando are closed so they are much more versatile as a first pair. i listened to him since he's always very logical.

i asked the SA for a size 36 and a 37 because i didn't know what would fit me better as i never bought Louboutin heels before [my wedges were 37, but i usually wear 36]. he came out with 2 boxes but told me he didn't have the 36, only 36.5 and 37. i tried the smallest first but to my surprise, they were a little loose at the heels. i was bummed because that would mean i wont have my shoes right away =(. SA checked in the system and found a pair at Holts Vancouver, we told him to order them and so we left our numbers and left the store empty handed. its ok, since i know Rosenstein carries a wide range of Loubs [only Holts and Rosenstein carry Louboutin in Montreal]. if they have it, we'll just cancel the Holts order. i went in there with really high hopes, because they do have 2 WALLS reserved for the red soles. i spotted the regular calf leather version and asked the SA about the patent ones. he said they dont carry it, or did he say it was sold out? i dont know...but i know it was a NEGATIVE answer....the last store and still with empty hands. i was so depressed..urghhhh that means i had to wait for the Vancouverite shoes to come!! after 4 painful days of waiting...

i finally received the call from the SA, i was SUPAH EXCITED and called my boyfe right away. he told me previously that he would go pick them up for me but on the phone, he told me he wouldn't make it because the store closes at 6pm and he finishes at 5:30. half an hour to go downtown is definitely not enough..bummed again i left work like usual. got home, Prince was already home playing with Tatsu. i was kinda in a bad mood and i think it showed on my face. on top of not being able to have the Loubs right away, some people irritated me at my workplace. T_T" the day could not get any worse. i laid on my tummy with my face covered. i heard my bf moving around and going out of the room, i thought he was going to feed Tatsu. a minute or 2 later, i heard his steps coming back to my room again...but it wasn't the only thing i heard...i could hear Tatsu breathing and also a noise of papers shuffling, when i lifted my head up, there he was with Tatsu in 1 arm and a nice big pink bag in the other. I SCREAMED LIKE A MOFO because i realized he went to pick them up for me in the end. he is the sweetest everrr!! i couldn't stop screaming because i was so happy. i never ever screamed like this in my whole entire life! not even for a handbag...!! let me take you through the unveiling of my pretty valentine's present...

i am even in love with the dustbag...*sighhh*

Extremely sweet. :)

The part about your boyfriend picking the heels up for you, I sort of already guessed that much, haha~

Nice to see you had a wonderful Valentine's Day.

Btw, how tall are those heels? I want those so bad but I don't know how I would ever be able to walk around in them. Are they comfortable? :)

My new years was spent at temple as well. How are the ones in Montreal?
Waitng 10-15 isn't too bad for Keg. The first time I went there we had to wait for about an hour. They estimated 45 minutes but it was over so they gave us free appetizers. We could order as much as we want. lol That sucks that you had people staring at you though. That really ruins the mood at times.

Reading about your bf and the gift made me smile cause you sounded so cute and those pumps are to die for! I wish I can affor those right now. How are they? Are they comfy?

Miss Queenie said...

do you think i'm taller than you with these on?? muahahah i feel REALLY tall…as in 155cm + 12cm tall!! =D i just hope i wont break my face with them..they kind of scare me a little. why did you save the pic? for gift ideas? or do you have some sort of heels fetish hehehe OMG i KNEW it i knew people were gonna think that!! thats why the comment's there!! T_T tsk tsk tsp boys boys boys..

yes it was very sweet…and i guess it maybe was kinda predictable..but in the moment..i had no clue!! loll

you should def get a pair of Loubs!!! they ooze with sexiness…

it was very lovely! =]
those heels are 120mm high!!
they were stiff when i first tried them…but i guess they will become more comfy over time.

thanks sweetie!! ;)

oiiii i never thought about my feet being small…but i'd look rather weird with bigger feet hehehe

thank you hun!! =] he isn't very good with surprises, but he does try his best tahahah

it was VERY crowded on NYE, the temples were full! i see so many girls dressed up as if there was a club event at the temple..so wrong!! T_T" i felt like i was an outcast huh
nope, the waiting wasn't that painful! =] holy cow…ONE HOUR?? thats really long..i would've collapsed. it was bothersome because when i eat, i have a hard time with people looking at me eating..it made me uncomfortable!!
the shoes are now very comfy…but i've yet to take them outside!! we'll see when spring comes.

thank you sweetie! ^^
