Kim, a creative director at Kim's Florist, set up at Jalan Sungai Chat here 35 years ago, is one of the oldest florist shops in Johor Baru.
The youngest among three sisters, Kim said she grew up among flowers.
"For the longest time that I can remember, my birthdays have all been in the shop.
"I've been helping my mother (who founded Kim's Florist) since young. February 14 is one of the busiest days of a florist's life so sometimes we get so busy, no one has time to celebrate my birthday.
"Last year, it was the double celebration because Valentine's Day happened to coincide with the Chinese "Yuan Xiao Jie" (the last day of Chinese New Year and fondly known as the Chinese version of Valentine's Day).
"This year, there were more "pick-up" orders than deliveries. The reason being that Valentine's Day fell on a weekend, so many couples have opted to go away for a holiday.
"We have couples residing in Johor, or coming from Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, but most of them would just order a bouquet and bring it along to some holiday destination," she said.
This year, there were also two wedding receptions on Valentine's Day which had ordered flowers from Kim's Florist.
"So, I am going to have a busy Valentine's Day," she said.
Kim said sales of "chocolate bouquets" priced at RM150 each comprising 12 stalks of chocolates, were much sought-after by her customers.
"You can have your flowers and eat them as well when you order the chocolate bouquet," she said.
As for the price of roses this year, Kim said she is maintaining the price as of last year.
"The classic red roses are still the most popular among my customers. We have bouquets ranging in price from RM100 to RM1,000 (for a bouquet of 99 red roses).
All the roses at Kim's Florist were imported from China, India, Kenya and Ecuador.
