Mr Cinical: I attempted to reserve a Banyan Tree Villa in Bintan for Valentine’s Day, but it was all booked out.
Me: Oh, so what’s your alternative plan?
Mr. Cinical: Nothing. And I thought it was the thought that counted.
Me: Before marriage, it was the intention that matters. After marriage, it’s the action that counts.
Mr. Cinical: And I thought it was the other way around.
