Hope Cupid was kind to everyone and the stars were clearly aligned when Valentine's and Chap Goh Meh (the Chinese version of Valentine's and also the last day of the Chinese New Year) coincided on the same day.
There were some workplace shenanigans going on during that day. Siew turned out to be pretty handy with a pen and post-it during a conference call. At least she managed to put a smile (literally too!) no our team mate.
The office resembled a florist's shop with bouquets of flowers and stuffed toys propped up at cubicles. This lucky girl received one of the sweetest gifts I'd ever seen and quite a number of people crowded around her cube oooh-ing and aaah-ing over the effort her other half put in for the present: handmade paper figurines complete with a moveable lever that makes the couple "kiss". Her other half has easily set the benchmark pretty high for other guys, huh? :)
And because Siew and I were devastated that our husbands refused to be swayed by mass commercialism, we treated ourselves to Starbucks green tea fraps. Look at what sad cases we are to persuade the barista to cheer up our drinks, LOL.
