Double the Fun, a V-Day Tribute

Our V-Day tribute. Nothing says love more than couples in match-y clothes!

OK, so Valentine’s Day isn’t exactly my favorite of holidays, but I’m not going to rain on other people’s parade if they find it all lovey-dovey and romantic and stuff. So, for you love birds out there, this couple coordinated-wardrobe post is for you! Happy Valentine’s Day!

7 Eleven purple tank tops in Ao Nang, Thailand. Not pictured: the 7 Eleven store to the left.

Let’s not forget these two goofballs. I think it’s hilarious of the four shirts we allowed ourselves to pack, we both packed the same shirt. Sigh..

All jokes aside, I often wondered whether there are stores in SE Asia specifically designed for the Sadie Hawkins type couple. There has to be, right? In any case, whether you show it in flowers, chocolates or matching hats, it’s the thought (and clothes) that counts. Share the love.

Share and Enjoy

    I love your website.. i think i spent a solid two days at work reading all your stories.. LOL its actually inspired me to to plan a trip to SE asia for 2014… ive noticed that you had a few posts of the things you didnt really like at the places you’ve travelled to.. but do you have any sort “horror” stories.. people trying to scam you, etc.. and advice on how to avoid these circumstances? this will be my first time travelling overseas.. and as much as i am excited for the trip.. i am also very much afraid that something might happen to me… i want to travel and explore and get away from all the tourism spots and experience the life.. but i dont want to stroll around like im a “bubble boy” worried about having any fun..

      Hey Jon! Thanks for your comment. We didn’t run into major horror stories really.. you just gotta be aware of your surroundings and that usually deters the pick pocketers and scammers. Don’t make yourself out as the obvious target, blend in. We weren’t too paranoid on this because we felt safe in most places. You can certainly do your research ahead of time to avoid the tourist traps. I read about tea scams in Shanghai from another blogger where girls would con you into afternoon tea and you end up with the fat bill, so when we were approach in Shanghai, we just said no and walked away. You don’t have to stroll around like ‘bubble boy’, just don’t stroll around at 3am in the morning at dark alleys alone. LOL. Best of luck and don’t let the fear of ‘scams’ prevent you from great experiences. Trust your gut instinct. 😀

    Oh, you should see Korea! There are couples in their match-y shirt everywhere. Chris and I might have even gotten sucked in. We have an album dedicated to all the matching lovers that we came across. So funny!

    • http://www.GQtrippin.com/ Kieu – GQ trippin

      Really?! We didn’t see any. In fact, I thought the Koreans are the most well dressed of the Asians.. LOL

    Hilarious…I can’t tell you how many times MJ and I have made fun of couples in matching clothes. Of course, we often wear something very similar by mistake and promptly change:)

    • http://www.GQtrippin.com/ Kieu – GQ trippin

      Hahaha.. Right?! Gerard and I have to ask one another when we’re wearing that maroon T so we wouldn’t match that day. LOL

    This is hilarious! I’ve never seen so many couples dressed alike. Your similar shirts have nothing on these head to toe look-alikes. :)

      Haha.. yea but we did look like twinsies when we where them. Especially with our denim jeans. LOL
