I made two other posts about what to do for your 100-Day Anniversary: if you have a Korean girlfriend and if you have a Korean boyfriend. As for my own 100-Day Anniversary, I honestly didn’t think that my first real date with a Korean guy would last very long. (My previous dates with Koreans were dead-ends, to say the least.) But anyway, I got to celebrate a 100 day anniversary which is the first important anniversary for a relationship in Korea.
I wasn’t there for my the actual shopping, but he told me about his original plan and shopping adventure. Although he didn’t know my bra size, he wasn’t going to let that stop him from trying to buy couple underwear. So he went to a lingerie store and tried to explain to the girl at the store my measurements by showing her how big around I was by holding his arms as if he were hugging me. LOL. Needless to say, he was unsuccessful. As far as my take on couple underwear: I’m kinda glad it didn’t happen. Hell, it’s a rare day if my own bra and panties even match; I can’t imagine coordinating with someone else. I giggle every time I see couple underwear displayed on the mannequins at the windows of EVERY lingerie store and whenever I think about how Korean couples are actually matching under their clothes..
He ultimately decided to surprise me. If I see him on weekdays, it’s usually in the evening, after he finishes school or work (depending on which day of the week it is). So I came home, like normal, to see a ‘mess’ on my floor. I didn’t really look at it because I REALLY had to pee. After washing my hands, I opened the bathroom door to find him looking a bit deflated since he didn’t catch my reaction to the display. lol. I did get a chance to look at it afterwards though:
Basically he made sure to leave school early enough so that he could beat me home from work. He set up the candles and lit them all. In the center are my gifts: a nice shirt in the bag, coke, and chocolate. He told me later that as he was preparing his display, I was sending him text messages telling him how happy I was that I was leaving work early. He said he went into a bit of a panic mode and had to race to the roof of my apartment before I came home. It was a really sweet gesture of him, but I’m sure he was expecting a bit more of a reaction from me. hehe.
I did make him a ‘dinner’ that night: spaghetti with Prego sauce. [My culinary skills are barely above not burning noodles. 😛 ] I also gave him my gift that night…a mixed CD of American music of genres that he likes. I also included a video of me talking about why I’m happy we’re together. So that was the most romantic thing I have EVER given/done for anyone, but he seemed pleased with it all. 🙂
He had plans to take me to an amusement park on the weekend, so we headed to Daegu early Saturday morning. Unfortunately, the skies decided that it would rain ALL DAY so we couldn’t go to the park. Instead, he spent the day helping me shop for fall/winter clothes (and he bought me more chocolate and coke #score) and took me out to a nice dinner.
UPDATE: I found a great application for calculating your 100 day anniversaries. I talk about it in my 300-Day Anniversary post.
