Three Colours: Red

Work takes priority, even on Valentine's Day, for Xiong, who was hoping Kwok would pick her a gift

If you had a lonely Valentine's Day, you are not the only one. Model Lynn Xiong Dailin was all on her lonesome as well.

Gifts to remember

1 Home-made video

This is a great idea for a shy person. While it can sometimes be hard to say what you want to face-to-face, it's easy to record a video message. Plus, you can take out any bloopers before sending it to your valentine. It's also easy to archive the video to enjoy another time.

We just clicked

SOME GUYS HAVE all the luck when it comes to dating, and Shanghai IT worker Wang Liang is definitely one of them. He's having his cake and eating it tonight.

Valentine's Day


Forget sending red roses.

What about gold ones instead?

Did you know it is the tradition in Japan for women to give chocolates to men on Valentine's Day?

What are some aims of this type of marketing scheme?


It is common for Valentine greetings to be humorous or cute and to have fun with the English language.

Fact and fiction

When a young woman murdered her mother one night in 1980, and stuffed her remains into a locker in Warsaw's main railway terminal, she altered the course of Poland's film industry, if not that of Europe, as well.

If an excuse is needed to show love, this is the day

Having been bombarded with advertising in recent weeks telling us we should buy something special for our loved one on Valentine's Day, the pressure to take the advice is immense. To do otherwise and forget the occasion by not buying flowers, chocolates, jewellery or any of the recommended myriad of other gifts would be to ignore the societal expectations of doing what is normal.

A special day - but not just for lovers

In a world divided by conflict, shamed by poverty and misery, threatened by bird flu and now racked by Muslim protests over western blasphemy, time out to express love and care for others comes around all too rarely.

True love isn't all hearts and flowers

So how did you celebrate Valentine's Day?

These days, Valentine's is no longer a boyfriend-girlfriend or a husband-and-wife thing. It can also be a friend-to-friend, son-to-dad, student-to-teacher thing. You don't need to be madly in love with someone to show them you care. Those you respect and cherish should get a look in, too.

Day for lovers leaves others seeing red

If you're seeing red today it's probably not just the two dozen roses blocking the harbour view from your penthouse suite. (Dream on!)

St Valentine's Day seems to have a habit of provoking behaviour that might not strictly be regarded as, well, romantic.

Search for love proves fruitless

It's Valentine's Day. So Lai See spent yesterday investigating how other people planned to celebrate it.

The news wasn't heartening.

It looks like the forces of anti-romance have the upper hand this year.

Over in India, youth gangs have been attacking shops selling Valentine's Day cards because they're 'loaded with nudity and sex'.
