this week i am in charge of cooking our meals so today i woke up at 6am to cook dinner because i might be rendering overtime later. after cooking i turned on the laptop then proceeded to taking a bath. this is what i saw when i came back to my room.
you don't know how much i love receiving flowers. i've been dreaming of receiving tulips since the day i discovered they existed.
i was very happy. giddy. teary-eyed. happy. giddy. i wanted to shout! veeeery happyyyyy (^____^)
|one pot contains pink, red, and white tulips :)|
i immediately thought that they were from mommy joy and daddy roel since there were 2 pots of tulips. then i felt sad because it would have been better if they came from Basuraman. then I saw Basuraman sent me a message in gtalk saying that he's already at the office, greeted me a happy valentyms day and said he wished he could send me some flowers and sweets but he's afraid they won't reach my place. i was starting to have tantrums.
before mommy joy and i left the apartment she said that they were from Basuraman. they were just his accomplices. right there i took a picture of the flowers and cake and posted it on facebook. it was the fastest way for him to know that i received them. what more can i say. I married the sweetest man in the world ^_^
i love you Basuraman ^_^ thank you!
some facts about celebrating st. valentine's day here in Japan.
Many women feel obliged to give chocolates to all male co-workers, except when the 14th falls on a Sunday, a holiday. This is known as giri-choko (義理チョコ), from giri ("obligation") and choko, ("chocolate"), with unpopular co-workers receiving only "ultra-obligatory" ch?-giri choko cheap chocolate. This contrasts with honmei-choko (本命チョコ, Favorite chocolate); 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". (Read more here)
we didn't give chocolates to our male co-workers. sorry hindi kami hapon. juk. we're not really comfortable with that custom (tsaka nagtitipid kami ahem) and we're kinda worried that some might misinterpret the action. deadma na lang. at least they won't be obliged to return the favor on March 14 or what they call here White Day wherein it is the time for men to give the ladies chocolates (triple the value of what they have given).
Happy St. Valentine's Day! Muah Muah!
