Would You Be My Girl

Happy Valentine’s Day to all, that’s yesterday’s greeting! ;P
I came across some very old valentine cards I received when I was younger. It was pretty funny, looking at the boyish scrawls and reading declarations of love and forever – all that written about 10 years ago!
There was a card from a boy who wrote a long poem about liking my hair, my eyes, my smile, my laugh, my walk, my bum ….. gosh, all that at the age of 14?! It was pretty funny. πŸ˜‰
What happened next was, he called me in the afternoon, and if i can recall the part of the conversation went like this:

boy: You liked my card?
me: (acted cool) It’s ok.
boy: Did you receive others?
me: Yes. A few more. Flowers, too.
boy: Oh. Ok. I just wanted to tell you ………. (paused a while) …….
me: What?
boy: I don’t know how to say it, but maybe I can spell it out for you.
me: (exaggerated sigh) Ok. What is it?
boy: W-U-D …….. Y-E-W ………
me: (scribbled down the letters on a piece of paper, thinking, “Aiyo.”)
boy: (continued) …. B-E-E ….. M-A-I …. have you got it so far?
me: I guess so.
boy: ……. G-U-R-L ….. ok. Tell me your answer later, I will call you back. (Hung up the phone.)

Back in the school days, Valentine’s Day gave boys the courage to ask the girls they like to be their girlfriends. Haha! Thinking back, those were the innocent days. As working adults now, sometimes it can be as indirect as this:

guy: So … (nudges girl sitting beside him)
girl: Yes? What?
guy: Are we going out ah? Since you agreed to have dinner with me tonight?
girl: Eh, can you ask properly or not?
guy: Don’t want la. So old fashioned meh …. Have to ask properly!
girl: -__-

  1. now to comment =P
    huhu one has gotta miss being a kid.
    and that is true about when we grow up. we just let things happen naturally and don’t go through the “will u be my girl?” part.

  2. happy belated valentine’s day babursssssssssss
    hope you had a good one!
    yeah, it was good being a kid. πŸ˜‰

  3. happy belated v’day to u too bimbooooooooooooooo!
    had a simple one.
    we’re not that into celebrating v’day cos it’s just ridiculous how they marked up the price of things. and why must celebrate love only one day in a year? why not everyday? bleh.

  4. baburs: come on…just because u are a retard u dont have to give that excuse. vday is vday u cant run from it.. why? did u go to Mccas? i dont think is ridiculous to celebrate vday. well, i celebrate love every single day but vday is the very special day to express love to him/her. u want to change history?

  5. heyyyyyy johnson, endroo, pikey, pokai, baburs, chzehong: i had a good valentine’s day! thanks for the wishes! πŸ˜‰
    karheng: angpowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!! and minummmm πŸ˜‰
    lx: do you need to get laid or something?

  6. KhinKo: ehehehehehehehehehe πŸ˜‰
    karheng: my paperbag is a bit dusty now, need to find a new one first! πŸ˜‰

  7. lx: dream on! stuff a carrot up yourself for the time being lahhh!!! please don’t be so bloody rude with our commenters here. we love our readers equally, unless they become f*cking rude.

  8. haha lx u crack me up. you’re just like any other typical asian who goes to australia, and feel that everyone from back home is below you just cos you’ve got international exposure.
    sorry i don’t use the aussie term mccas.
    how we enjoyed it, is not for you to know. but rest assured it was something you would never think of. there is something called creativity in case you’ve never heard of it.
    lastly, name calling is just so childish. even more childish when you do it over the net when we’re miles apart. come back here and say it to my face. i’ll make sure you enjoy it.

  9. and lx, you just made a huge contradiction by saying you celebrate love everyday, with all of your rude comments and such here.

  10. I know I’m a tad late but Happy Valentines Day people!!! Say come to think about it, what happen to the old fashion way of asking someone to be their gf. Kills the romance if the guy doesn’t ask properly. It’s as if he’s not serious about it. Wouldn’t kill to make some effort right? *wink*

  11. I know lar it’s digital age now but be more romantic a bit mar. Call me old school, I think if the guy were to ask me to be his gf with an sms, he could also divorce me with an sms. *_^
