Happy White Day

White day is a scam. Japan has divided Valentine's Day into two- women give to men Feb 14 and men return the gift March 14. K never remembers it is white day. At his old company all the admin staff (young women) would give the men chocolates on V Day and then I would buy return gifts for White Day.

At this company they are so casual/ apathetic they don't even have the ubiquitous drinking parties so needless to say there is no VDay/ White Day going on.

The girls and I made chocolates for K on VDay (ok, we melted down chocolate bars and added sprinkles and remoulded them into hearts and anpanman shapes but still) so when it got to White Day they were all very excited to see what daddy would make in return. I tried to soften the blow by suggesting daddy probably wouldn't make anything as much as buy something but who knows right?

K got home (after the girls were asleep) with....

"eh? Today? Today is White Day? Eh??"

Poor K. The only shop open was 7-11 so off he went to get something and of course they were sold out (I am guessing the majority of men around here would be doing the emergency 7-11 dash for White Day!) and he came home with huge single serve grape jelly cups. I have know idea how his brain works that that was remotely close to either chocolate, cookies (traditional gifts) or something white but the girls were thrilled to eat them for brekky and raved at how amazing daddy was to remember and know exactly their favourite kind of jelly.

Amazing, huh?

Truly Amazing.

Me? I had my own treat. My friend S and I went out for lunch and she had won a voucher for a free dessert. Thinking it was a cheap chain family restaurant and on top of that a freebie I was imagining a spoonful size dessert but when it arrived we both took pictures:


And then she shared what was a delectable dessert.

Happy White Day indeed!
