Who's Valentine

Before we discuss about Who's Valentine, let us have a quick glance at what valentine is.

According to an English Dictionary, its meanings are as follow:

1. a card or message, usually amatory or sentimental but sometimes satirical or 
   comical, or a token or gift sent by one person to another Valentine Day, 
   sometimes anonymously

2. a sweetheart chosen or greeted on this day

3. a written or other artistic work, message, token, etc., expressing affection
   for something or someone

Clearer now? To narrow the context of our topic, meaning no.2 is referred. 

So who the earth is Valentine?  Well, it depends. It can be a girl friend, a boy friend, a book, a cat, etc. that means so much to the person.

To those who haven't found his or her valentine, Gurney Hydro Toastmaster Club's coming meeting might be a great platform for you to search for one.

While  I can't assure you a 100% success rate, I'm certain that you will be realizing that Gurney Hydro Toastmaster Club is your long-sought valentine after attending the meeting.

I mean, who else will be sitting there quietly and listening attentively to what you speak if you are poor in this part and giving you constructive and friendly suggestions for speech improvement
who else will always be there wowing and cheering non-stop at your speaking flair if you have one? None except your valentine-to-be, GHTC.

Now, here is your love letter:
