“Starlight, star bright, With this star I free tonight, Fly up high amongst turrets and towers…” Here’s a famous spell from The Worst Witch. Whenever there’s anything magical, people often associate them with the stars. That’s because the star itself is a dark body but glows with the radiation from the space that fell into it, which makes it unusual yet brilliant in so many ways.
While people are making wishes by praying to the stars, many youngsters are also caught up with the idea of reading their partners’ compatibility or human personalities through the star signs (also known as horoscopes). In this article, we aren’t going to just help you understand your twin flame’s overall personality, but suggest perfect date ideas to make your Valentine this year more exciting than expected.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
Known as a sign that is responsible and hardworking, but could be pessimistic and stubborn at times, Capricorn is a zodiac sign with the earth element that makes them grounded with their dreams. That being said, as a partner of this sign, you must make Valentine’s Day a chance to encourage a break from those hassles and indulge the two of you at a relaxing pace.
One fine way that would be a good idea for your date if you are taking a typical Capricorn out or being a Capricorn yourself is to go for a boat ride. This doesn’t only get you two in-touch with nature but it expands your worldview as well.
Despite the current MCO, you could still rent a boat and go for a tour if you are staying nearby the beach area. However, the most suitable place for this activity in Malaysia is Langkawi where it’s defined as an archipelago of many islands that would benefit the boat tour experience. If you aren’t able to go for this option at the moment, perhaps saving it on your bucket list and take your partner there once the movement order is lifted would be great!
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
Ah~ we’re hitting the most eccentric star sign of them all, I mean they’re the idiosyncratic candidate. It’s not a bad indication, but dating them requires strategies and deep understanding to prolong the love spark. Although they may seem changeable all the time, do you know that the two things that will last with this star sign are humanitarianism and nature bonding?
The fact about being Aquarius or dating them is that they don’t usually open up their heart to the people around them easily. Thus, the best way to make your dating plan as eventful as possible, you may consider joining any sort of volunteerism program with them. On top of that, going for a coastal walk in the park, woods, or beach would be suitable. This may sound too plain for an important day, but that’s all Aquarius needs as they love simplicity.
Pisces (February 19- March 20)
Being known as the most imaginative, intuitive, and kind, Pisces needs an outing that would calm their nerves from the emotional realm. The best suggestion that would help you and your partner to enjoy Valentine to the fullest is to visit an art gallery or museum nearby. This doesn’t only allow fellow Pisces to expand their creativity, but the two loving couple would get to pick up the same interest at a time, which draws them closer than ever.
Places of suggestions that can be listed in your consideration are ChinaHouse in Penang, Galeri Petronas in Suria KLCC, Baba & Nyonya Heritage Museum in Malaka, Orang Asli Crafts Museum in KL, and Brooke Museum in Sarawak.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)
Ranked as the first in western zodiac mythology, Aries is well-known for its adventurous and fearless traits. Likewise the chivalrous personality of the house of Gryffindor in Harry Potter Universe, Aries is always looking for something to drive their passion and fulfill their adrenaline excitement.
To keep up with them, or unleash your bravery nature as Aries yourself, getting involved in the impulsive sporty activity with your partner would be a great fit even during Valentine’s Day. After all, who says we can’t be romantic when doing sports right?
If you find yourself feeling pumped when hearing terms such as high ropes course, zip lines, and slides, you should consider listing ESCAPE Theme Park (Penang and KL) and Skytrex Adventure (Sungai Congkak, Langkawi, Melaka) as your dating destinations. You could even sign up to MIR Adventures for more rock climbing programs.
With the current pandemic season, it’s difficult to enter these places for fun, but there’s still no harm in taking your partner to a casual hill climbing in any place nearby your house where you can visit them for free while keeping social distance on the track.
Taurus (April 20- May 20)
Taurus is arguably the most patient and diligent sign of them all. Although looking silent most of the time, Taurus is good at financial management and focuses on quality of life more than anybody else. With that, Taurus needs their partner to be able to keep up with their pace and be independent.
If you are dating a Taurus or being a Taurus yourself, planning a romantic at the beach would be fascinating. Imagine trotting on the sand while getting your feet to sink in the water, not only that it’s soothing, but experts claim that it could be healthy for our metabolism as well.
Malaysia, being a tropical country, is surrounded by the sea where beach walking is possible everywhere. To look into some tourist attractions that allow beach walking with a more relaxing holiday vibe would be Batu Ferringhi in Penang, Tanjung Rhu in Langkawi, Perhentian Islands in Terengganu, and Tanjung Aru Beach in Sabah.
Gemini (May 21- June 21)
Likewise their Aquarius counterpart, Gemini is bound to act changeable at times. The reason is that their minds are constantly filled with strange ideas and easily attracted by the new peculiar things. Despite coming off a little impatient and indifferent, Gemini knows ways to be as romantic as they could be.
You’d be surprised when everyone goes for a new dating style to experience different things, Gemini, with them fancying themselves being unique than others, would appear unexpectedly typical whereby they prefer having a simple candle-lit dinner with their loved one.
Almost everywhere has cafes and restaurants that support this romantic service, but here we’d like to recommend a few with high rankings based on their reviews. For instance, Monsieur Bar & Restaurant in Penang, Samira in KL, Marini’s on 57 in KL, and Laundroluxe in Sabah.
Cancer (June 22- July 22)
Cancer is being known as a sign that’s full of love. As someone loyal and persistent, Cancer may occur defensive and sensitive in some ways, especially with family. That said, Valentine with a Cancer partner is completely different than others as they are family-centered and might want a date with their partner while having family members joining in on this special day. To find an activity that allows the participation of a group, water rafting is definitely a brilliant idea for you.
Places that host water-rafting activities for tourists are Sungai Kampar Perak, Water Rafting Xventure Selangor, White Water Rafting Taman Negara Pahang, and Sungai Sedim Jeram Terbaik. Though the idea is forbidden at the moment, you could always plan for it to be carried out after the MCO, or spending time watching water-rafting videos on the internet with your partner from home would be a creative way too.
Leo (July 23- August 22)
Known as a generous and confident star sign, Leo possessed strong leadership skills which make them admired and respected all the time. Nonetheless, they tend to care too much about other people’s perspectives on them.
Leo enjoys feeling elegant and elite, which includes the dating scene as well. Thus, spending a night with them in a bar or proposing a rooftop lounge night out on Valentine’s Day is definitely going to turn Leo on!
With that, places such as Gravity Rooftop Bar Penang, Three Sixty Revolving Restaurant and Rooftop Bar, Sky Bar Penang Hill, and Canopy Lounge Rooftop Bar KL are some of the options you could browse through on your bucket list.
Virgo (August 23- September 22)
Perfectionist, modest, and diligent…If these traits sound familiar to you, you are probably hitting a Virgo, or being a Virgo yourself if you can relate to them. While serving people as much as they could give, Virgo needs encouragement from the people around them, especially their romantic partners.
To help Virgos build more confidence, doing yoga together would be interesting and remarkable on a big day as Valentine. For instance, The Habitat Penang, Life Hot Yoga @ Mont Kiara, and De Yoga House Penang are a few places with yoga schedules and classes available for people of all ages. While public sports are not encouraged at the moment, couples can still take their yoga mat to nearby parks or gardens and enjoy yoga with one another quietly (with social distancing applied).
Libra (September 23- October 23)
Have you ever read through the traits of Ravenclaw house in the Harry Potter Universe to find the similarity between them and fellow Libras? Libra associates with the features of intelligent, creative, aesthetic, and excellent interpersonal relationships, which makes most of them a qualified Ravenclaw.
There’s always a myth about Libra- Gracious outside, lazy inside- that is partly true in 90% of them. To cater to this complex personality, a day on a cruise ship would be a captivating plan for your Valentine’s date, if your pocket is thicker than usual. For those who can’t afford this luxury lifestyle or are restrained from it due to the pandemic, a virtual tour into the ship can be a great idea. Otherwise, reading a storybook about pirates sailing through the sea of the world with your partner can be satisfying as well.
Scorpio (October 24- November 22)
Based on the western zodiac signs, Scorpio is a horoscope that emphasizes the nature of sincerity, single-mindedness, and observation in general. With that, Scorpios are more in touch with their inner-self and that enables them to be more aware of their mental state compared to others.
To keep up with Scorpios or being one, a date in a spa center isn’t only an idyllic treatment for stress relief, but it could also bridge the gap between couples along the process of relaxing as well. According to Gina Percival (2017), an aromatherapist, spa helps the body to release oxytocin where ‘cuddle-affection’ between you and your partner is increased.
There are a few places in our country that offers spa services, some of them include Thai Odyssey in Penang, Tower Spa Penang, Rock Spa @ Hard Rock Hotel Penang, Lost World Hot Spring Night by Spa, Spa Village Kuala Lumpur, Ozmosis Health & Day Spa, and Attiya Spa Kuching.
Sagittarius (November 23- December 21)
Out of 12 western zodiac signs, Sagittarius is defined as the most patient, cautious, and kindest horoscope. While they can be realistic and persistent in some situations, people still draw to them for their maturity and determination. If you are in a relationship with a Sagittarius or being one yourself, you should consider involving your dating plan with natured related activities. Camping is one of the go-to options that would make your Valentine’s Day a memorable one!
Most Sagittarius don’t mind staying overnight in the outdoor environment as they are outstanding warm-hearted human beings with a broad aspect of environmentalism. There are, in fact, places that host camping services with bonfire allowed such as Rainforest Camping Perhentian Island in Terengganu, Longsha Campsite Kuala Terengganu, FRIM Camping Area in Kuala Lumpur, The Hill Relaxing Camp Penang, and Polumpung Melangkap View Camp Site Sabah.
The campsite services may be unavailable during the MCO, but you could still plan for it once everything’s stable. Another creative way to make it real without offending the current rules is to host a virtual camp with your partner where the two of you set up a tent in your respective room and video call each other simultaneously. Not only do the two of you get to enjoy yourself, but it also creates a different experience than sleeping outside.
There go all twelve dating ideas for each zodiac sign. Amelia Quint, the brand astrologer once said, “Pairings are not set in stone. It’s a complex web of interlocking features that doesn’t have limits, so don’t let this put you off.” We hope by providing you with the tips based on different constellations, it’d make your dating experience on this coming Sunday smooth sailing. While keeping safe, we still want to wish all the lovely birds out there a Happy Valentine Day. Be sweet and be safe!
