Whether you're single by choice or not, Valentine's Day can be an annoying time, to say the least.
Your favourite restaurant is all booked up and even if you manage to get a table, you can't avoid the 'are you alone?' question which often comes with a look of pity (as if everyone's happiness depend solely on being with another flawed human being).
Not to mention all the events that seem to cater exclusively to couples, ignoring the existence of amazing single people who might want to have fun on the day too.
But worry not. We have compiled a list of things that you can enjoy alone, or with your equally single and awesome friends today and tomorrow. So, here you go.
The Anti-Valentine's Day Show with Joanne Kam
This is for all you Valentine's Day haters, whether you're single or in a relationship.
Joanne Kam is no stranger in the comedy scene. She's set to make you laugh till your stomachs aches with her take on love, relationship and Valentine's Day on the 14th of February.
Tickets are sold at RM60 online and RM70 for walk-in customers at the Crackhouse Comedy Club in TTDI.
Drag your besties, or just you own beautiful self for a night of laughs.
Strictly for the boys, SCORE at the Roof is opening the establishment to those who wish to toast to their friendship and have a good time today and tomorrow.
The event involves alcohol, so be a good mate and take away your friends' phones if you see them getting a little too drunk and about to text their ex.
Extra PSA: Don't drink and drive!
Geisha's Playground - Galentine's Day
Girls, gather your squad! It's time for an 'extra' slumber party.
Put on your cutest pajamas (if only all parties could be this comfortable) and head to Kyo KL for a night of fun and games.
The best part? Entry and selected drinks are free! You also stand a chance of winning some great prizes.
The event starts at 11pm today (13th February) and goes on all night long, so be prepared for loads of fun and no work the next day.
Tome Raider - Valentine's Day Bookstore Scavenger Hunt
Now, this is not strictly for singles but hear us out 'cos the event is open for both singles and couples.
Just imagine: You've got an hour and a sheet of clues that you can buy for RM5 each, you're rushing through the shelves trying hard to ignore the tomes you've been coveting for months when your view clashes with those of a super cute person holding...your favourite book!
What could be better for a bookworm than spending Valentine's Day surrounded by books? Whether you walk out with a book that you could fall in love with, or the phone number of someone who holds the same promise, it's a win!
Art Jam for Singles
Regardless of talent, an art jamming session allows you to let out your artistic side and relax.
It gets even more fun when you do it with strangers with whom you can create a masterpiece with, since you'll have no idea what to expect!
Head over to BindUp this Saturday (February 16) for a jamming session, especially for singles. Who knows? You might just meet you next soul mate or BFF on top of painting something fun.
There you have it. There's plenty to do this Valentine's Day regardless of your relationship status.
