Happy White Day Preparations Everywhere...

PinkRoom Nail Academy resumes this week after a long break for everyone. Hope all is rested to welcome the New Lunar Year ahead.

Although this year's CNY falls on the same day as Valentine's day, we can all look forward to celebrate the "White Day" on 14th March(exactly one month after Valentines)... this day is a big thing here, much like Valentine's Day.

In Japan, Valentine's Day is observed by gals who present chocolate gifts to a male, to show their love. The handmade chocolate is usually more liked as it is a sign that the guy is the girl's "only one".

On White Day, the opposite happens: males who received a chocolate-gift on Valentine's Day are expected to return the favor by giving gifts, usually more expensive.

As I'm presently in Japan, everywhere I go now.. I can see large displays featuring chocolate usually with heart-shaped displays appearing on the floors of department stores...

Either itz due to the stores eager & zeal for these promotions to boost their potential sales increase; or the stores are just simply trying to provide reminders to "forgetful" men on the approach of this day, so that even the most forgetful man cannot say that it slipped his mind...haha..

Here's wishing all a Happy Valentine Day..every single day.
