Happy Valentine's Day

When I lived in the US, I thought that Valentine's Day was pretty tacky, just an advertising holiday - but over here, I enjoy the goofiness of Valentine's Day.

Lao people love any kind of holiday - and have fully embraced the spirit of Valentine's Day. I even received a rose for the special day and joined a birthday party at lunchtime, where the guest of honor received a heart shaped cake.

Update: After work, the boys in our office treated the girls to beer and sinh dahd, Korean (or Mongolian) bar-be-que.
