Last week, the convenience stores in my neighborhood were already displaying boxes of chocolates, hoping that people passing by would get a box for a girlfriend, a boyfriend, a husband or perhaps, a mistress! Ha-ha-ha!
Valentine's Day. A day reserved for lovers, but for a few, it's another reason...to party!
So, last Saturday night, considering that the actual Valentine's Day falls on a workday, a few friends in Seoul gathered together, all dressed up for 'purple' Valentine's Day, a twist from the overused Valentine 'red'. And thanks to Ruth and JK, who kindly offered, creatively decorated and turned their place into a purple hall, where everyone had fun playing some 'naughty' party games, such as the talong (eggplant) race, the hardboiled egg task, and the stiff neck-causing last apple dance. And since everyone was game, there were lots of boxes of chocolates as prizes! (Perhaps from those convenience stores?).
And with everybody dressed up for the theme, the best dressed lady and gentleman were rewarded for the 'purple' effort!
But aside from those boxes of chocolates, everyone was kind to bring a dish to share: baked salmon, baked lasagna, spaghetti with meatballs, adobo, curry, salad, garlic chicken, bottles of wine and a few cakes, which a few were able to burn off through some sayawan (dancing) at the party, while I burned it off on the treadmill the next day! Ha-ha-ha!
So, I already had my Valentine fun last weekend, I hope you will enjoy yours today!
Happy Valentine's Day!
