A few days before Valentine's Day, restaurants have been overflowing with reservations.
The flower and gift shops are bound to be busy, too.
Are you wishing that February will skip 14?
While you can choose to ignore the bouquets and gifts arriving in your office or the officemates leaving early for dinner, you can actually do more to enjoy the day.
You don't have to ask the universe, "Bakit sila may date, ako, wala?"
Just remember: "Hindi ka nag-iisa."
It may also be just a phase in your life. For all you know, it may your last Valentine's Day as a single lady, so make the most out of it.
1. Get a haircut.
Wala kang pinagdadaanan, you simply want to look good that day. Period.
2. Buy something for yourself.
How about a nice shade of red lipstick? Revlon's Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor is priced at P431.25.
3. Learn something new...like baking.
Who knows it will mark the day you start building an empire out of cookies.
4. Indulge in chocolates.
If you're on a diet, declare Valentine's Day as your cheat day.
