One Valentine’s Day years ago, hubby’s car broke down. We were still dating then and I was really upset as I had looked forward to a romantic dinner together. Even worse, it was raining, the roads were jammed and we were running late!
Sometimes life does imitate art. Like a scene from a romantic Korean drama, hubby pushed the car out of traffic’s way and dashed into a hawker center nearby. He chatted up a stall operator and amazingly managed to ‘rent’ a bike!
Everything happened so fast that I was still in a daze as we weaved our way through the crawling traffic and reached the restaurant, albeit completely dripping wet. I looked foolish with heels, nice dress and all! The flabbergasted waiters were hesitant but after some ‘explaining’, they allowed us in.
Everyone stared; but I was SO touched with his loving devotion. That was the sweetest Valentine’s ever. Right there and then I knew HE’s the one I wanted to spend the rest of my life with.
Nowadays whenever tensions start to brew, hubby often asks cheekily whether I need a ‘romantic bike ride through the rain’ to calm down. That always has us laughing and getting all lovey-dovey again!Allysha's story won her, among other things, a Dinner By The Cruise for two, courtesy of Mines Cruise. She and her husband got to enjoy to a romantic, private 4-course dinner while cruising slowly around the lake.
Congratulations, Allysha--and this time, we're sure you got to stay nice and dry!
