Valentine's Day

Oh Valentine's Day in Japan... Well for one the girls are meant to give the boys presents ONLY!

I, however, was lucky enough to receive 2 cards! Actually, the cards weren't given voluntarily. The English teacher asked the students to write cards - and that the cards had to be written to the teacher whose name the student drew out of the hat.

One card was quite simple: "Dear Kate, Thank you for your kindness. From...."

The second (pictured) was a lot more interesting. To begin with I'm not sure if "your glass is kind of nice" refers to my classes, or my glasses. Also "Your voice is a gift from God, and also your father" was a bit of a surprise! But then the English teacher explained that it comes from the textbook story of an opera singer. I don't know if I would claim that my voice was akin to an opera singer's.

I like the way they do Valetine's day, gives the guys an extra month to think of the right present!
