Announcement: My Valentine's Day

OK, so I lied on Monday about posting about our trip to Geoje and Oedo islands over the weekend... Valentine's was so nice, I now have to BRAG about it!

I mentioned yesterday that men shouldn't do squat, as that would totally violate the whole Valentine etiquette... OK, I admit! I did give her a small (like REALLY small) bar of Swiss chocolate.

Hey ~ You can't just cut a guy off a bad habit rite? Weaning takes time. A small bar of chocolate for the girl... Seriously, that should be acceptable?

Back to the topic of what I got for Valentine's ~ She gave me a box of Ferrero Rocher, and a PUMA cap.

Coming back from work, we skipped the whole commercial propaganda, and beelined for the supermarket. She made dinner, and even though there weren't any candlelight, steak or sparkling wine... it was beautiful.

The company was, that is.

All in all, to top off the day, THIS cracked me up as I flipped open the tags on the new cap for a read.

Bloody geniuses... I would buy the cap just for the laugh! Well-done PUMA.

They really mean it when they say DIRECT marketing nowadays, don't they? You got chocolates and cap, I got a card. I'm migrating to Korea.

What's with Ferrero Rocher "chocolates" popularity anyway? I munched on a couple at the office yesterday and they tasted to be about 0.01% chocolate. But it's no suprise, most chocolate I've tasted in Korea reminds me that this is a nation more apt to produce kimchi. Although, my girlfriend, knowing my discerning tastes, gave me some Korean-made "Duree" chocolates that are actually quite good. They go well with the other gift of Armani slacks. Oh, the difficulties I suffer through loving a fashion industry mogul ;)

hteekay: I guess every country has their share of bloodsuckers and angels. Mine's a gem. :)

Jo: Ha ha ha, if I were your friend, I'd laugh myself silly. Just for the laugh, I'd love the guy who thought of that to bits!

Kurt: Well, DIRECT marketting sounds pushy, but I guess in this case, the effect worked good! Incidentally, 50% of the women here are angels, and the rest are evil, or senseless... don't bother migrating. :)

gnightngirl: You girls are doing good. Better than being all worked up and depressed about the commercial holiday rite? :)

Max: I just enjoy the nut inside the chocolate shell. Not much of chocolate, you are right. Ooh, Armani slacks... Una sure is good to you!

Smash: Would you buy the cap just for the laugh? lol :)

That's sleek marketing by Puma. I never thought the marketing guys got this creative bit up their sleeves.

When it comes to getting gifts for a loved one, as the old saying goes… it’s the thought that counts. Not how much it costs, or how big or small it is...
presented the gift at the right moment, throughout the relationship

Domestic Rat: Sure it is. Never thought anyone would be so dead honest eh?

Jo: There you go... spot on Jo!

Anonymous: Absolutely agreed. That's why I thought the home cooked dinner was fantastic, so I had to BRAG about it. ;)
