Valentine’s Day is celebrated in so many parts of the world today, a day the whole world is celebrating love and romance. As Valentine’s Day falls on a weekday in 2018, why not send a bouquet of flowers to your special someone and have more time together to celebrate on the weekend?
In all honesty, that’s so Malaysian - as long as your girlfriend, wife, partner, or date does not mind that is! Below are some ideas for a nice leisurely weekend or even a weekday celebration.
Picnic at Desa Park City
Shop: Picnic blanket, plate, cups or glasses, food (sandwiches, fruits, drinks)
Price: As fancy as you like it 🙂
Address: Desa Parkcity, 52200 Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
When was the last time you had a picnic? If it rains, this plan might go bust but otherwise it’s wonderful to take in some nature while spending time with your partner. If you want to make it a surprise, you can prepare all the food in advance and surprise them with a nice setting. I’ve heard of couples having picnics in their living rooms with a favourite movie! Being together is all that matters.

Book Here: Trader’s Hotel KL
Price: From RM531/night (rooms with the view of the Petronas Towers, as of 24/01/2018)
Address: Traders Hotel Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Lumpur City Centre, 50088 Kuala Lumpur
Why not plan a wonderful time with your loved one in a hotel room with room service? For some with highly stressful jobs, the idea of celebrating the occasion can even seem tiring. A check in at a hotel without needing to cook, prepare or do anything other than relaxing may just be the thing a couple needs. We suggest booking a room, enjoying the room service with a wonderful view of the towers and enjoying drinks at the bar on the topmost floor, aptly named Sky Bar. It’s open air and boasts one of the most breathtaking views of the city skyline.

What better time to indulge in a luxurious afternoon tea than on Valentine’s Day? All the pastries are made fresh daily with plenty of options for tea. The scones are warm and crumbly and the ambience of the hotel, calm and soothing. Live piano music is played in the The Tea Lounge which creates an all-around atmosphere of love. Romance is definitely in the air here! This website even suggests choosing teas with rose, jasmine or lavender for an added touch.
Cook something together

Price: Starting from RM50 onwards
Address: Your home 🙂
If you’ve never cooked something together before, why not try a hand at it? Splurge on some nice ingredients and have fun with it! Recipes you could try out include a classic spaghetti carbonara, salmon with garlic lemon butter sauce, and pan fried chilli and honey prawns with a side of salad.
The challenge of trying to get a nice meal for two on the table together may seem daunting but it can be interesting and above all things, make it fun. For married couples, surprise your partner who usually does all the cooking by preparing the whole meal on your own from start to finish. You may need some support if you have children but as long as you both don’t stress over the tiny details, enjoy being together as a couple, because that’s what Valentine’s Day is about.
Valentine’s Day isn’t just about the date and gifts, trying to impress your girlfriend, wife, partner, or even date but it’s the thought behind the effort that matters the most. Whatever it is you plan this Valentine’s Day, make it something meaningful and memorable with small details to make it just that bit more special.
Last but not least, don’t forget that you can select their favourite flowers from BloomThis’ Valentine’s Day Collection which includes roses, hydrangeas, lilies and many more wonderful blooms.
