Hi there lovely readers!
It has been about a week after Valentine's day! Are you looking forward to White day? Or probably Black day? haha
I wonder, do you celebrate those days beside Val's day in your country?
Actually, according to the tradition, Val's day is a day where the females are supposed to show their love and it's the other way around for White day. I think this is the only time of the year where it's appropriate for the ladies make the first move without people thinking of it being aggressive or something like that, haha. Say yay to the feminism paradigm!
You guys might have already heard about White day but what about Black day, does it sound familiar to your ears? Black day is the day for the singles! This day is actually more common celebrated by the females, usually all the single ladies goes out for the night and have lots of fun. Black day is pretty popular in South Korea, the singles who doesn't receive any gifts from the 2 previous celebration days go and eat jajangmyeon (a traditional korean noodle with black bean paste). Those 3 days are celebrated on the same date, the 14th, just in 3 different consecutive months, February for Valentine, March for White day and April for Black day.
But nevertheless, Valentine's day to me isn't only about your significant others. Valentine's day is about showing love to others and that doesn't have to be a specific person because love universal. In my country, Indonesia, we don't celebrate White Day or Black day, just Valentine's day so this is the only day we use to celebrate love language. You can use this day to show your gratitude to your parents buy sending them a gift card or buying them Valentine's gifts and sweet treats. You can also just be extra nice and treat them special if you don't have the budget. Not only your parents, you can also show some love to your Grandparents on this day, since Grandparents day is almost never celebrated, but them the World No.1 Grandpa & Grandma mug in your local grocery store, it would really mean a lot to them or perhaps just print a picture of you and your old folks to bring back old memories.
Beside your own family, Valentine's day is also a good excuse to catch up and get to know your in-laws better by giving them some gifts or maybe just a chocolate layered cake with hearts decoration on it! Not to mention it would be extra special if you bake it yourself, it would totally blow their mind. Exchanging sweets and handmade greetings card with your friends is also a good idea, nothing feels better than the act of giving and to be given back. And lastly, you could also share the love to strangers just by giving them your brightest smile that day, cause you never know, that might be the only sunshine they see for the entire day!
For this year's Valentine, I spent the day mostly packing and preparing for my move to Perth since my flight is on the day after. But luckily, I was invited to a tea party at Britty's bakery by Poise Party Decorator in the afternoon. So I got to meet a few of my Bali blogger friends, Angie and Ce Jess. It was such are refreshing event for us with no date this Val's day, haha. And the best part is, I get to say goodbye to Angie, one of my closest friend and the person who I have spent most of my last days in Bali with since she lives nearby my work place.
Well now I will introduce you to the two lovely ladies behind Poise Party Decorator, they are Ce Brittany (Owner of Britty's Bakery) and Ce Aileen (Owner of @sweetgems.bali). Since desserts are basically their background the concept of their party decoration is basically a sweet corner and what doesn't match them best beside pastel colors! So if you want to make a sweet feminine event just for you and your girls, you should definitely hit them up! Especially since they are having a special discount for their soft launching it's a Rp. 750.000,- cut off! Which is equivalent to $75. This promotion is available up until the 31st of March, your event doesn't have to be before that but you just have to make your booking by then. Convenient much?
The location of this tea party is at Britty's Bakery which has been magically transformed into this princess like corner. We made some new friends, which mostly turns out to be my high school seniors and met a new Bali Blogger from @foodiegodisland. Had little chit chats and tried all the sweet treats that we couldn't resist not having a taste of. I just realized that no wonder I gained so much weight :'D My favorite have got to be Britty's Original Carrot Cake and Sweet Gems' Signature Vanilla Pannacotta with strawberry sauce, they were lovely and I was craving for more! <3
