My translation may not be accurate....

Dunno how reliable are these....
Won't they be very busy if there's valentine's day on every month??

Now I know why YEH's bro left the message on YEH's CY saying Chocolate...
Wonder who will be the lucky guy to receive YEH's chocolate and who will be the one giving her chocolate/candies next month?
