Happy Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day has been celebrated worldwide no matter what religion you belong to and what are you. It has become so commercialized that it practically means wasting money. You can always say that Valentine's is all about spending money, and it doesn't really bring any significance just because it's Valentine's. Everyday is Valentine's if you treat her/him everyday like that. You may see that from that point of view and there's not a need to celebrate a day as such.

Guys I know will say things like that. Girls in the other hand say the opposite. They say why can't we celebrate together with other couples to show the love and yada yada. They want to be treated differently, a day to be treated extra special. Well, I don't know. Haha.

I received 2 cards this year which is pretty awesome. It's a good start HAHA. But this is more like a friendship card. Hehe, STILL! It came as a big surprise because I did not expect this at all.

Anyway, Valentine's Day fell on the day when I was still in Japan. Just like in Korea, Japan celebrates Valentine's Day with the girls giving the guys chocolates too. In Korea, it's the girls expressing their love through that and the guys will reciprocate on White Day which falls on March 14th.

I have learned that in Japan, it is not necessary that the girls have feelings for the guys. Sometimes, it's just a courtesy of giving chocolates. It may be co-worker, friends and etc, they do practice it like that. But, it's not the same type of chocolates given from the guy they like to the guys they have no feelings for.

The chocolates that they sold had been wrapped up very prettily and nicely. I want that on March 14th!! 

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!
