Valentines Rubi, by Clara Tse

Clara and I aren't really into the whole flashy–Valentines thing. Neither of us had anyone for most of our lives, and we're both painfully aware of how small the holiday can make you feel when you don't have someone.

So instead, we spent our evening doing what we did when I first confessed to her: hanging out at Happy Lemon and sipping bubble tea and rock salt cheese coffee. We even discovered an amazing new bakery in Sydney which will be the subject of an upcoming post.

That said, Clara did go out of her way to make me a box of adorable chocolates, and spent an amount of time I'm too afraid to ask about drawing that epic picture of the Rubénerd mascot Rubi above. How she can call herself untalented is absolutely beyond me, though I suppose her modesty was one of the things that attracted me to her in the first place ^_^.
