#952 Chocolate Season

20160211_121933
I am going to meet some friends at Yokohama this weekend. We haven’t been seeing each other for a long time. That day happens to be Valentine’s day. So I decided to give chocolates to my friends.

I browsed, tasted and a bit drunk

I went to a chocolate event at Takashimaya department store. There were more than 120 chocolate shop booths. I browsed through all the booths and tasted some chocolates and got a bit drunk, because I can’t drink at all. Seriously I got very drunk just because of those few pieces of chocolate.

Something from Kansai for my friends

I like “PIERRE HERME” but I didn’t buy it this year.
I was looking for something from Kansai for my friends who don’t live in Kansai area. Finally, I bought the “Leaf choco of Monloire”. I asked the salesperson at the booth “Is this shop only in Kansai?” She said “Yes, this shop is based in Kobe.” I bought them with a sense of relief.

A chocolate box autographed by a famous chef should happen in front of me!

After that, I heard a man shouted “LE CORDON BLEU’s pastry chef has appeared on surprise! and he is signing autograph on chocolate boxes.” at LE CORDON BLEU booths. Then, I bought a box of chocolate for my husband. When I was paying and waiting for my cash card back, the chocolate box was already autographed by the famous chef, though I was not able to see him signing in front of me. It should happen in front of me, as if a book writer gives out autograph at autograph session in a book store. I was really disappointed even though I don’t know the French chef very well.

Things sometimes don’t go the way I want, but I still have…

And afterwords I found out that “Monloire” has 3 shops in Tokyo on the internet.
Things sometimes don’t go the way I want.
Luckily, this time I still have some delicious chocolate saved for myself.

私ももう女の子にチョコレート貰って、食べちゃった。
星の王子様の描かれている缶に入ってたわ。
私もデパートにチョコレートを買いに行きたいけど、混んでるところが苦手で。
nakoさんみたいにバリバリ試食するアクティブさがなくって。。。
でも今なら、色んなチョコレートが買えていいよね。

もう食べちゃったの?

デパートのチョコレートフェアは卒業したいと思いつつも
やっぱり誘惑に負けて足を踏み入れる。買う。食べる。
そして自分のためのバレンタイン終わる。
