In lands I never saw -- they say
Immortal Alps look down --
Whose bonnets touch the firmament --
Whose sandals touch the town --

Meek at whose everlasting feet
A myriad daisy play --
Which, Sir, are you and which am I
Upon an August day?

    @takafromtokyo Thank you for your thoughtful response. Actually, the last sentence of the funny coincidence, intended to be a little joke.

    This one is for you @GemmaRowlands

    Happy Valentine's Day anyway!

    Aw thank you very much, I appreciate that :). I still had quite a nice day, even though I didn't have a partner to share it with.

    I'm still biding my time for when travel to Pakistan becomes safer @Bubbly.

    @mheredge don't bid your time for it. Just plan it this year. Safety and security will remain a question mark forever!

    I will do some research @Bubbly. I know my Singaporean friend is keen to visit as he's never been to Pakistan and he is thinking about seeing some of the World Heritage Sites in the south of the country.

    When is the best time of year to come?

    @mheredge If you want to travel in the northern areas of Pakistan, then it is the ideal time from the weather's perspective (Jan to April). But, you can also plan from September onwards, because the weather is very pleasant all over the country. If you want to go to Sindh (for different sites of historical and cultural heritage), you can plan it anytime except May, June, and July because the temperature is above 45°C in the Province Sindh in these months.
    You need to identify the places that you really want to visit before you plan it.

    I always worry about travelling to a place with known safety issues, and I have probably missed out on seeing lots of wonderful things because I am just too nervous to go!

    Last St Valentine day my girlfriend was ill. So we stayed home and i cooked for her, i nurtured and took care of her. It was not really the evening both of us were expecting, anyway she appreciated a lot my efforts to make her feel better and i was glad of that.

    By the way i am in the list of people that believe that St Valentine day is way too commercial and that love could be disclosed in every moment we wish.

    I agree that it is far too commercial. There is too much pressure to spend money, when it should be more about the love that you share with your partner.

    The tradition when Valentine day come is to men bought floweres, exactly roses for his women. Apart roses I bought one t-shirt for my girl, and she is being very hapy for that suprise.

    I'm afraid I didn't even notice the day this year. I was in Kathmandu and though I'm sure that young couples did celebrate, there was none of the obvious commercialization you would see in some countries.

    I don't like the fact that it is so commercialised here, but my partner and I just spent time together, we didn't really buy into doing anything big.

    In this valentine day ,I and my boyfriend went to watch a drama.but we were unable to watch it beacuse of the crowed.so I took him to dinner that was my gift for him and he bought me some new clothes.they were really nice.anyway I spent the day with happines. :)
  • mheredgemheredge Posts: 39,683 ✭✭✭✭
    That sounds like a very good way to celebrate @sammani. Do you mean that the theatre was crowded and fully booked so you couldn't watch the play?
  • sammanisammani Posts: 433 ✭✭✭
    @mheredge, yeah.that was an open theater in our campus.there were huge crowed and I was unable to go in eventhough we had tickets.but it was okay . :)
  • mheredgemheredge Posts: 39,683 ✭✭✭✭
    I have to say that I hate very crowded places @sammani, so I would have been happy to do like you did, have a nice quiet evening together.

    It is a shame that you were unable to watch it, though I expect the fact that it was Valentine's Day made it a lot busier than it might have been otherwise.
