Feb 14, just another normal day
Feb 14th, its just another normal day for me..
I dont celebrate Valentine for few reasons, but lets just leave it at that.
Anyway, was doing some reading on Wiki regarding Valentines day
In Japan, in 1960, Morinaga, one of the biggest Japanese confectionery companies, originated the present custom that only women may give chocolates to men. Unlike western countries, gifts such as candies, flowers, or dinner dates are uncommon. It has become an obligation for many women to give chocolates to all male co-workers. This is known as giri-choko (義理チョコ), from the words giri (“obligation”) and choko, (“chocolate”). This contrasts with honmei-choko (本命チョコ); chocolate given to a loved one. Friends, especially girls, may exchange chocolate referred to as tomo-choko (友チョコ); from tomo meaning “friend”. By a further marketing effort, a reciprocal day called White Day has emerged. On March 14, men are expected to return the favour to those who gave them chocolates on Valentine’s Day.
In South Korea, women give chocolate to men on February 14, and men give non-chocolate candy to women on March 14. On April 14 (Black Day), those who did not receive anything on the 14th of Feb or March go to a Chinese restaurant to eat black noodles and “mourn” their single life.
A friend of mine brought up a topic last night regarding speed dating as he’s attending one to accompany his friend and never have been to one. I never knew such ‘speed’ thing exists. Dont you thing its a little rushed, especially for those who gets nervous in front of girls?
LOL all you want, but at my current state, i guess i’ll be attending it in years to come ;__;
Anyway, good luck in your love life, although i think Valentines Day is a little OVERRATED as you can always show your love at any time under the sun.
