Most couples celebrate St Valentine’s Day by taking their significant other out on treats. Some go to the club, some to the beach house, while others just want to have fun at home by themselves with no distractions or third party.
As you all know, the ban on Okada and Tricycles has increased time spent on the road. So many will prefer to be at home and serenade their loved ones with cool music and loving care, instead of spending a lot of time on this unpredictable traffic quagmire.
