St Valentine's Day Gifts: St.Valentine'sDay is just around the corner on 2/14/09. In Japan, it's a day girls give chocolates to boys. In USA, it's a day a man gives gifts to his girlfriend or wife, or a couple exchanges gifts.
The popular gifts are Red Rose bouquets, Chocolates, Jewelry, Perfume, lingerie, and etc.
お馴染ゴディバのチョコレート。バレンタイン限定チョコの数々。 Godiva Chocolates. They had Valentine's Limited Release Chocolates.
Last Saturday, there was a sign saying, "Buy 2 get 3rd Free" by these heart chocolates at Godiva shop in South Bay Galleria. I bought 3 small ones, but there was no discount. Monday night, I went there and asked about it, they said the small ones will not qualify for that discount. Tuesday night I went back there again and returned them ($.5.50 X 3 = $16.50) and got 3 Heart to Heart chocolates ($13 X 2 =$26 and 1 free).
ヴィクトリアズ・シークレット。下着、化粧品、香水などを入れるハート型箱もありました。 Victoria's Secret. They had Heart shaped boxes to box lingerie, cosmetics, perfume, and etc.
As I researched Internet, "Valentine'sDay"has become the day women give chocolates to men in Japan and Korea. In Korea, the guys who did not receive chocolates on Valentine's Day eat "Jar-jar noodle" on April 14. They have an event called, "Black Day." That's interesting.
In USA it's romantic when a guy says, "Be My Valentine," or "You Are My Valentine" on Valentine's Day. In Japan, it's a day all guys want chocolates even from coworkers. It's called "Giri-Choco (Chocolates given as courtesy). It could be little hectic that day.

Tuesday night on February 10th, I went back there again and exchanged 3 small heart chocolates to 3 large Heart to Heart chocolates with 14 heart chocolates. It was $13 each. I got 1 free. Oh, No...., I am on "Biggest Loser Competition" diet right now. What shall I do with these chocolates? I will write about this diet later.
