How Valentine's Day Originated

Dear lovers, 
Today Loversville would like to share the story of how Valentine's day originated....

St. Valentine's Story

Let me introduce myself. My name is Valentine. I lived in Rome during the third century. That was long, long ago! At that time, Rome was ruled by an emperor named Claudius. I didn't like Emperor Claudius, and I wasn't the only one! A lot of people shared my feelings.

Claudius wanted to have a big army. He expected men to volunteer to join. Many men just did not want to fight in wars. They did not want to leave their wives and families. As you might have guessed, not many men signed up. This made Claudius furious. So what happened? He had a crazy idea. He thought that if men were not married, they would not mind joining the army. So Claudius decided not to allow any more marriages. Young people thought his new law was cruel. I thought it was preposterous! I certainly wasn't going to support that law!

Did I mention that I was a priest? One of my favourite activities was to marry couples. Even after Emperor Claudius passed his law, I kept on performing marriage ceremonies -- secretly, of course. It was really quite exciting. Imagine a small candlelit room with only the bride and groom and myself. We would whisper the words of the ceremony, listening all the while for the steps of soldiers.

One night, we did hear footsteps. It was scary! Thank goodness the couple I was marrying escaped in time. I was caught. I was thrown in jail and told that my punishment was death.

I tried to stay cheerful. And do you know what? Wonderful things happened. Many young people came to the jail to visit me. They threw flowers and notes up to my window. They wanted me to know that they, too, believed in love.

One of these young people was the daughter of the prison guard. Her father allowed her to visit me in the cell. Sometimes we would sit and talk for hours. She helped me to keep my spirits up. She agreed that I did the right thing by ignoring the Emperor and going ahead with the secret marriages. On the day I was to die, I left my friend a little note thanking her for her friendship and loyalty. I signed it, "Love from your Valentine."

I believe that note started the custom of exchanging love messages on Valentine's Day. It was written on the day I died, February 14, 269 A.D. Now, every year on this day, people remember. But most importantly, they think about love and friendship. And when they think of Emperor Claudius, they remember how he tried to stand in the way of love, and they laugh -- because they know that love can't be beaten!

So my friends, this is how Valentine's day originated :)

First Date

To all our single friends out there, Valentine's is just round the corner and this is your best chance to impress the girl/ guy of you dreams. For those of you who have yet to make your move, you'd better get going, Valentine's only come once in a year you know!! Now, here are some tips for you on how to impress on first date. 

First impression is the best impression. So, Be Prepared!! Preparation can be as important as the date itself, so never leave things till the last minute. If you're planning to bring your date to a fine dining restaurant, make sure you make a reservation beforehand and If you're planning to watch a movie, purchase the ticket online first if possible as having to switch restaurants and failing to watch the movie you planned can be disastrous. It would definitely be a plus point if you can take your date to a place that is unique, where she would not have gone before. Say a flower field, or a boat in the local lake or a fun fare (I certainly haven't been to a fun fare in ages!). Make it a memorable and interesting place, something she would not forget for a long time.

So now, the big day has arrived. Three words- Dress to impress! However, do not go to every shop in the mall buying something new as you can never really tell if it’s good on you as you would be wearing it for the first time. Be smart and wear clothes that are comfortable and best suit your personality.

It is also good if you keep a list of conversation starters and make them general questions. Ask about their life but never get too personal. Try to be witty and humorous as girls are often turned on by that. Never brag on how big your biceps are or how many girls were interested in you before. Present your plus points in a subtle manner as it will be much more effective in connecting with her. By looking into the eyes of your date, it means you are showing interest in her. And don’t keep on yapping, allow her to talk. When she is talking listen to her. Don’t be cheesy or behave like a tramp, instead appreciate her in a honest manner. 

At the end of the date, when you drop her home, switch to a romantic topic and give her a kiss preferably on the cheeks or maybe a peck on the lips if she allows to. That would definitely be a memorable one. Good luck guys!!

TGV makes loving so much sexier

Hi lovers,

We made a visit to Sunway Pyramid the other day and checked out TGV's latest Beanie Plex, and all we have to say about it is.......SUPER ROMANTIC!!!! Although a little pricey, RM 38 per couple seat, the seats are comfortable like a big couch. With the annoying hand rest out of the way, you can just cuddle with your sweetheart for one whole movie. The chairs provide a certain amount of privacy as well with its slightly raised arm rests at the end. Totally worth it lovers. Do checked it out if you can... Cheers lovers

Valentine's Must Watch Movies

Dear lovers,

As we all know Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. It is one of those days we tend to work the hardest to find that one thing to express our feelings to our loved ones in a special way. Coming up with an extraordinary idea is difficult, and there is no doubt many of you are feeling the pressure. If you are facing this problem then let us assure you that you truly are deeply in love with your partner and he/she is absolutely gifted to have you. Many of you may have loads of ideas in mind, a hot air balloon ride probably, or a candle light dinner in a beautiful park or maybe even a special firework show for your dearest. What ever it is, ensure that your ideas revolve within your budget and the resources that you have. With that in mind, we thought what better way to fill your minds with some interesting ideas to do on this affectionate day. Our quest in making the best of your Valentine’s Day starts today. We will visit restaurants and suggest movies suitable for a passionate evening. Ideas and comments are most welcomed.

For now, we have a list of possible movies you might want to consider:

The TITANIC is a wonderful film by James Cameron, and it is by far one of the most touching films we have ever watched. For those who haven't watch it, we highly recommend you to get a copy of it and watch it with your loved one during Valentine's. The movie tells the tale of a well mannered Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslet) that is pressured to marry a rich man by the name of Cal Hockley due to her family’s condition – an idea which Rose would prefer to avoid. Attempting to commit suicide, she was saved by Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio) a raffish and charming third-class passenger. Jack and Rose started to spend time together, ultimately falling in love, in spite of the disapproval of both her mother and Hockley.

JERRY MAGUIRE on the other hand is a modern day film. The movie has a blend of comedy and romance. With Tom Cruise playing the leading role as a super sports agent named Jerry Maguire who losses his job due to a mission statement he presented. Joining him is a 26-year old single mother, Dorothy Boyd (Renee Zellweger), who is so moved by Jerry's Mission Statement that she's willing to throw away a safe job to be part of his new venture. The film describes how the life of both individuals grow into a magical love story. In this film you'll be surprised to find how our Mission Impossible hero, actually has a sensitive side.
