White Day

Following the Valentine's day in February where the girls were crooning over their special boys, March 14th is the White Day where the boys accept the girl's advances by giving them, usually, chocolates or something cute (and thoughtful :p ) of three times the value of what was given by the girl. Do you know that Koreans celebrate a "Day" in each month!

Yesterday, i went over to a store in Seoul, to find cutely dressed and decorated roses selling for 50,000KRW (Which is approximately $50 or Rs 2000) and lot of these pretty pastel baskets filled with sweet goodies. I was also really curious to see a lot of boys browsing through the shelves of the store which usually is deserted during the working hours. There were these bunch of just-out-of-college-boys just stuck in front of the plants section, picking up one pot, replacing it and picking up another flower pot, selecting and de-selecting until they burst out laughing at themselves!

So much fun to watch the men flock to these display and get overwhelmed by the choices.
