I woke up today with a pang in my head. I need to slow down a bit. When I took a bath, got dressed, had my breakfast, and headed to the office, I was thinking about priorities and what needs to be done today. I imagined all the good things – I wished I could be in the South Island right now.
Wenda text me, told me about that good news, and of course the “Happy Valentine, dear!” Same to you dear friend. Oh, gosh, it’s already mid of February! Then, I text all my girl friends including my former boss, wishing them ‘happy Valentine Day’… well, from the bottom of my heart, I really wish you all a special time with your dear ones – and they’re not always have to be your husband/wife or significant others but your friends, your team members, your family, etc.
My friend in Bandung told me about her only son who bought her an IDR 5,000 bouquet of flower *smile*. I bet it’s not about how much money he spent for his mom but the love and attention dissipate from his deed. (I kissed my mom before I headed out of the house this morning… guess, I need to do it more often.)
After my morning meeting with some Clients, I arrived back on my desk… and found a heart-shaped chocolate stick wrapped by clear plastic and pink ribbon *smile*. It’s from one of my team members. Thank you, dear.
I brought my team to have lunch at Duck King in Senayan City. He, he,… never been in that mall before. We laughed and had a good time together. I teased one of my team members who dressed up so nice – ‘are you going to have a date after office hour?’ By three in the afternoon we made our way to the office again *smile*. Boleh dong…. we spent long hours too, right?
Olip text me to have dinner out together, but Pipiet couldn’t make it (had to accompany her mom who stayed home by herself) and Christi already made a ‘date’ with her Psycho friends.
Yani called just to remind me to call the day off. Got a response from Bonita, she’s in the hospital for Hep C treatment. Take care, dear.
Well, maybe for some people Valentine Day is just like any other day – but for me, at least, it’s a day that I force myself (who’s always busy) to spend the time to connect with my dear ones.
Udah, Piet, jangan sensi gitu ya… nyantai aja. Nggak perlu kan semua hal dianggap serius, pusing kita ntar *smile*.
