best place to celebrate Valentine's Day in Kuching


Valentine’s Day is just a couple of days ahead and I am sure many are thinking of where is the best place to celebrate Valentine’s Day in Kuching this 2021.

I’m sure this is a huge question for many couples in Kuching since some restaurants have limited occupancy due to Covid-19 Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) which may not allow much tables to be open like previous years.

The limited number of tables, coupled with how Valentine’s Day sort of ‘sneaked up’ behind everybody, just after Chinese New Year would have likely caught many off guard.

I am sure some are scrambling to plan what they can do to make this 2021 Valentine’s Day special.

KuchingBorneo is still about home

This is where this post comes in.

I am here to offer a suggestion to those of your unable to plan your Valentine’s Day as grand as it used to be.

Don’t worry, KuchingBorneo is still a travel blog about home, and this post is still related to home although it’s now talking about your Valentine’s Day options.

You see, it is important that you can celebrate Valentine with your love one, so I hope this place I am suggesting would help.

One place fits best this year

There’s only one place which is the best place to celebrate Valentine’s Day in Kuching this 2021.

The place I am talking about is inexpensive, easy to find, and best of all, free from Covid-19 and also Covid-19 SOPs.

On top of that, reservations aren’t required, so you can walk in at any time.

If you must, you could opt to scan the temperature of your date, but I am very sure it will read ‘hot’, knowing how he or she, is your significant other.

With all these perks, the best place to celebrate Valentine’s Day in Kuching this 2021 is none other than at home.

Yes, Valentine’s Day in Kuching this 2021 will be best celebrated at home.

Before you scoff off the idea, hear me out first.

Never under-estimate the power of staying in during this pandemic time.

If food is a problem, order in. Our food delivery services have been very efficient lately and there’s plenty of choices as well.

Celebrating at home not only will ensure the safety of you and your partner (and family), but it also opens the post-dinner activities to a whole range of possibilities.

These include watching movies, playing video games together or just sipping wine while talking to each other.  That’s just a few things out of the top of my head, but I am sure there’s plenty to do together, for the lowest cost possible.

On top of that, both you and your significant other need not wear a mask, so you both can adore each other’s facial features the whole date. No worries about looking out for enforcement officers who may fine you RM1,000 just because you wanted to gaze at the looks of your date!

Valentine’s Day will be mask-less if done at home.

It’s a really great way to spend this special day, without breaking the bank, or breaking Covid-19 SOPs.

Also, if you are staying in with your family members which makes a private dinner not possible, then consider an online dinner/date instead.  It’s not fancy, but it works too.

On a serious note

I’m sorry if you are disappointed to learn that I am proposing you stay at home this Valentine.

But the Covid-19 pandemic is far from over, and we really need to get our numbers in Kuching down so that things will get back to normal.

Staying in as much as you can, as well as avoiding places with plenty of people, can help decrease the infection rate of Covid-19.

This in turn will help us return back to normalcy in the near future, and hopefully then, dinner outside for Valentine’s is can be an option.

With that said, Happy Valentine’s Day everyone.

Stay safe.
