on Valentine's Day we had an excellent dinner at Spring Rolls restaurant in downtown Toronto. it surpassed all my previous favourite restaurants and became my new favourite.
later in the evening, i almost tripped and fell on the floor because of sikander's present. he had hidden a Passion Fruit Bath set from The Body Shop somewhere in the apartment. i told him i don't celebrate Valentine's Day. I told him! he never listens (smart husband!) and then he put it on the floor in front of the washroom. when i came out i almost tripped over it haha :):)
Valentine's Day in Korea is a bit different than the North American tradition. on february 14th, women are supposed to give chocolate to the men. then on march 14th the men are supposed to return the favour and that day is called White Day. then on april 14th, the men who did not get anything on february 14th get together and eat jajangmyun and this day is called Black Day.
sikander sent me lots of stuff.. lucky me ^_^. take a look. maple syrup, trident gum, twisted straws, kinder bueno, ferrero roche, a very nice card, and a very nice teddy bear sitting in water which i have to hide from my niece otherwise she would steal it. there is a small wheel under the teddy bear heart water ball and if you turn it, it looks like this. best of all, i got Chicken Little sunglasses which i will definitely wear to work everyday.
thanks thanks for an early valentine's day gift. now sikander, according to korean tradition you have to send me something on march 14th. and guess what, you'll have to find a restaurant in canada that has jajangmyun. start looking ok? :):)
