Since Multiply is shutting down as a social networking platform soon, I have to migrate my photos and blog posts to Facebook and Blogger respectively. Starting December 1, 2012, Multiply will focus only on its niche of being an e-commerce portal.

Stefan Magdalinski, Multiply CEO, has issued this formal announcement:

This is a repost from one of my Multiply photo albums. 

Date: February 14, 2009, Saturday
Location: Serendra

We were not girlfriends and boyfriends back then yet. Louie has not been to our house. On this Valentine’s day, he planned for a surprise—meeting me at our very doorstep. Unfortunately for him, his plan didn’t turn out the way it should. At 2:16PM, he said through he was sorry for he will be an hour late (4PM instead of 3PM). But nine minutes after, he sent a text saying that it was only a joke. Actually, he was already waiting outside our house.

I went down and looked for his car.

Left. 

Right.

Clearly, it was out of sight.

So I called him up. He said he was right outside our door—on the right floor but wrong tower! Good thing he did not ring the bell. We met at the lower ground parking lot, and he was carrying a humongous bouquet of flowers. I left the flowers at home with him then rode our way to Serendra.

It was raining then, but as if the gods and goddesses of the skies had casted spells on the weather in a split-second, the rain had stopped the moment we arrived. The place was a sublime sight even for the bleary-eyed.

It was a day away from the ordinary.

Oh, scratch that.

It was an ordinary day; he just made it special. ^^

    Louie surely knows how to make you happy on this special day. I’m wondering what surprises he has for you today. Happy Valentine’s day to both of you!

    Ordinary days turned special are one of the most unforgettable. These kinds of story are worth to keep and be told in the next generation to your future children.

      I agree. When your special someone works as an antidepressant, there’s no life or moment in it that you’ll spend wallowing in self-loathing, bleeding wrists and feeling sad. Any ordinary moment would be special. I hope I will remember that and not take the opportunity to be with him for granted.

    so sweeeeeeeeeet! anyare after 4 years? 🙂 *kilig much* kahit di nagkaintindihan masyado…tsoks lang!

    • Rochkirstin Santos

      Haha. After four years, we feel more grown-up. There’s less kilig moments (at least to my point of view). We’re just much more comfortable talking about the long-term future.
