Of 14ths and Chocolate

Printer-friendly version

How Koreans (and Japanese) celebrate Hearts Day aka Valentine’s Day is quite different from how the Philippines and many parts of the world do. In Korea, it’s the best day for the ladies to “confess their affection” through giving chocolates or small tokens to the guys they admire. The guys then, reciprocate that affection after a month, which they call White Day (March 14th). If it’s an unrequited or the men didn’t receive any gifts during Vday, single ladies and gents usually enjoy a bowl of Jajangmyeon (자장면; 짜장면 / Black Bean Noodles) or anything black on the 14th of April or Black Day.


Since Danny isn’t a big fan of chocolates, (thank goodness!) I got reasons to have ’em all. Nah, I’m slowly cutting down my sweet cravings but when I saw these goodies (grand Ferrero and Milka Oreo) few weeks before Vday, I was curious.

Milka Oreo

So, he promised to buy them for me instead. And yes, we don’t celebrate 14ths like how Koreans do. *wink*

Happy White Day, everyone!
