Valentine's Day Ideas

14 February 2013, 15:00
With all the harsh news going around, time for some light reading and escape... "All you need is love, love is all you need."- The Beatles

> Create a poem with your lover’s favourite song lyrics. The Beatles and Queen have incredible lines…
> Place petals on the bed, spelling the letters of their name. Too long a name? A letter for each petal.
> Lingerie too expensive these days? Wrap yourself in a large bow. He must unwrap only using his tongue and teeth.
Prepare the room like a beach getaway. Pour champagne upon your darling… Cool water and bubbles, just like the ocean.
> After showering together, tell him/her to meet you in the room. Come back only with whipped cream on the important bits… Shower again. Hehe…
> Prepare breakfast in bed, but unique in that under each item he/she finds a word. They spell out whatever he/she means to you.
> Buy a rose for his/her mom… She raised him/her after all.
Try making a card instead of buying a soppy one. “I took time for you…” says so much more.
> Take him/her on a picnic. Prepare a type of treasure map of the park you choose. Every tree or bush indicated on the map hides a word describing what he/she means to you.
Spell their name out with adjectives:
e.g. IAN…




> Go to the movies early, ask the people in charge if you can insert something before… “John, I love you…” “Thank you for everything, Jane…” He’ll be so surprised when you start watching the movie.

The trick to romance is pure originality and knowing what your lover likes.
Is he/she a racer? Prepare a trip around in a McClaren, or whatever his/her favourite car may be. Test drives are free or cheaper ;-)
A boxer? Get him/her new gloves with the words “Love” and “You” on each hand.
A tour guide? Surprise him/her with a tour of your body. Blindfold him/her. And explore you, tongue only.
A doctor? Play his naughty nurse side-kick… “Doctor, I’m not quite sure how to turn you on… Mind showing me?”

There’s only as far as your imagination can take you…

Why I love Cambodia’s capital

There are so many reasons to hate Cambodia’s bite sized capital of Phnom Penh. Open sewers, naked children, piles of burning garbage on every street. Its a dirty, smelly, noisy amalgam. But Phnom Penh grows on you and by the time you leave it will occupy a special place in your heart. Read more...

We all know what do when we cut or scratch ourselves, right? Our first response, without even thinking about it, is to go for the medicine cabinet – grabbing the antiseptic ointment and a plaster or two.  Read more...
