Let me count the ways . . . then let me check my wallet

1. The woman in this photo has ...

a) just said, "Yes!" at Dragon Valley Ski Resort, where families gather to celebrate the Lunar New Year holiday.

b) won a heart-shaped crystal at the Westin Chosun hotel after ordering the Swarovski Love Cocktail.

c) demanded that her boyfriend get her a heart-shaped diamond or forget about marrying her.

2. Where is the best place to find the true fragrance of love and why?

a) The Grand Hyatt hotel because JJ Mahoney's (02-799-8601) is giving away Chanel perfume and cologne to all.

b) Biwon, or the Secret Garden, because the unseasonably warm weather has prompted the colorful spring flowers there to bloom prematurely.

c) on a virtual reality trip to an uncannily Earth-like region of Mars to get as far away as they can from the rat race of Seoul. They know that it's a fantasy and they will have to take off the helmets soon.
