yellow carpet

Yesterday I went out with my friend.

We went to the museum.

On the way to there,

I found yellow carpet made with fallen leaves.

It was beautiful.

Merry Christmas!!!

I made cake for the Christmas.

Since I hadn't made it for a long time, so I failed.

The sponge was not well risen.

But after I decorated with cream and strawberry,

it looks like a cake.

jailed cook?

Last Sunday when I was walking,

I found a jailed guy...

no, it was not.

But it was like a jailed cook.

It was one scene of closed shop.

year-end party

Last Saturday I had  a year-end party with my friends.

We had Chinese food around a round table.

I like chinese food so much!!!

We ordered so many dishes but there were as many as eleven people

so we ate all soon.

Last Friday I received a letter from mom.

Mom wrote in a letter,

'Take care of yourself'.

I see...

'Don't follow a stranger'.

...Of course I won't.

'You shouldn't drive a car'.

...She knows my driving skill so she never recommend me...

'Don't eat spoiled food'.

...Mom...what a life do you imagine I am spending?

I never follow a stranger and eat spoiled food!

I think, I am a little child forever to mom.

But it was funny.

 Thank you so much.

Today I met with my cousins in Suidoubashi and had dinner together.

When we ordered 'octopus sausage',

It was like a birthday cake!

So interesting!!

smiling steamed bread

Today I made smiling steamed bread with rice powder.

I used  wild blue berry for part of eye and mouth.

I tasted it as soon as I steamed.

Ummmm...It was bitter!!!!!


When I made, I  put suger.

Berry was also sweet.

But white bread was bitter.

I wondered...and checked with internet.

Then I found that it was because of baking soda.

According to information on internet,

if I use too much baking soda,

bread would be bitter!!

I see...

As I recall, amount of baking soda might be too much

because I wanted to raise dough.

Though I was disappointed this time,

I will never make a same mistake!

fried dumpling near Tokyo station

Yesterday I ate fried dumpling at the restautrant near Tokyo station.

I had known this resutaurant since before but it was first time to try.

When I passed the restaurant, I had always found the waiting people,

so I had expected that it must be so delicious.

Fortunately there was no people in the restaurant yesterday

because it was earlier time than dinner.

But when I began to eat, many people came into the restaurant.

I really like fried dumpling and this was also so tasty.

The cook fried this as soon as I ordered so it was so hot and delicious.

And also I ordered noodle (涼皮麺 liang pi mian) too.

This noodle is made from rice powder and there was spicy sauce on the top.

Umm...this was also not bad but I like fried dumpling after all.

walnut bread

I baked walnut bread last night.

Though I sometimes bake bread,

adjusting the amount of water is still difficult.

Last night volume of water seemed to be less than moderate.

I will challenge again soon.


Last night my friend came to my house.

She bought me cake!

It is cake with Doujima roll.

That base is Doujima roll.

Doujima roll is very famous rolled cake in Japan.

I chose Mont Blanc.

Though I had expected that it would be so delicious,

I found that actual taste was better so much!!!!!

rabbit cake

This is rabbit cake which I ate a few days ago.

There was rasberry jam and tea flavor cream inside.

Not only it is so lovely,

taste is also good.

When I ate this,

I felt sorry...

I am sorry, rabbit....

But 3 seonds later,

I forgot such a feeling.

ummm...good! So delicious!!

Last Saturday I bought pedometer.

I like walking so I wanted to know how many I walk every day.

When I looked for pedometer at the shop,

I was surprised to see many kinds of it.

I knew many new functions.

What I bought was not so expensive,

but it measures the amount of calories I burn up while walking

after setting my weight and length of stride at the beginning.

I think it is good function.

Today I walked about 7000 steps.

I had work today so this number was not so many.

The amount calories I burned up was also not so was only 200kcal.

I found that burnning off calories is not easy...

Nov 11th is...

It is Nov 11th today.

This is Pockey day.

It is just the strategy of confectionary company.

I know it but I eat pockey on this day every year.

I ate strawberry pockey last year.

I bought normal pockey this year. is simple and tasty....

Yesterday I received cookies from mom.

She often makes cookie and I really like it since I was a child.

Actually one of my most favorite food is cookie.

When I was a graduate student,

I was always eating cookie in the study room,

so my peer called me 'cookie monster'.

Though I like cookie so much and eat many kind of it,

I am fussy about it.

Commercial cookie is usually too sweet to me.

Both too hard and too soft is not good.

Moderate crunchy texture is important.

Nice to meet you, I am Pockey!!

In Japan, 11th November is 'Pockey Day'.

It is just a sales strategy by confectionary company.

I know that but I buy pockey on Pockey Day every year.

This year I decided to make pockey.

It hasn't been that day yet,

but I had time last Saturday so I made.

I made...but it doesn't look pockey...

Real pockey is like a stick and more slim.

So I wrote 'pockey' to them..

Um...It is really pockey!!

Everyone can see!!

Today I had jogging with my friend in the morning.

We started running from Hatagatya and jogged around Shinjyuku, Yoyogi.

Actually my friend took bicycle,

so we took turns jogging and riding bicycle.

We dropped at the building of prefectural office in Shinjyuku.

The scenary from it was great though weather was not perfect.

After jogging,

we had Indian curry for lunch.

It was so good but too much for me.

So I was so full and sleepy after lunch...

As a result I had a nap.

I wanted to be healthy so I jogged this morning,

but sleeping as soon as I ate is not good....I know...

No way!

Today I found the cat which is relaxing with fruits at vegetable store.

Is this cat also salable!?

No way!!


Last Sunday I made Takoyaki, which is 'octopus dumpling' in English.

I used fish sausage insead of octopus.

I think it is not only cheper than octopus but also tasty!

When I was university student,

my friends presented me Takoyaki machine in my birthday.

Though about 10 year has passed since then,

I often use that machine even now!

It is so useful.

I really thank to my friends!

Yesterday I went to 'YONG XIANG SHENG JIAN GUAN' in Ueno to eat fried dumpling.

I ordered it with curry soup.

I ate fried dumpling  for the first time in Ikebukuro a few month ago.

It was so succulent and tasty,

so since then I ate it many times at any restaurants.

But I think this restaurant's one is the best.

I would like  to eat this everyday.

I found the weed which came from the interspace of wall.

I was surprised to see its vitality!

The weed is strong.

Pineapple cake

One of my favorite food...

It is pineapple cake from Taiwan.

I really like this.

I found this at the store which sell Asian foods in Ikebukuro.

It is named 'cake' but like a cookie.

Sweet pineapple jam is covered with cookie.

It is very sweet but so delicious!

After once I began to eat,

I can not stop myself!!!

with chocolate sauce

Last Saturday I had lunch with my friends.

We went to the restaurant which has varied chocolate menu.

It includes even chocolate main foods.

I ordered curry rice with chocolate sause.

Sauce was normal chocolate sause.

I put this onto the curry.

Combination of them was so surprising but very good!

Even though without chocolate sauce was also good enough,

 but by adding it, taste became mild.


Last week I made Quiche.

Before when I visited my friend's house,

she made quiche for me.

It was so delicious so I asked her the recipe of it.

I tried it last week.

The way of making was very easy but taste was so good!

I will make Quiche again.

visiting Kyusyu

Last Saturday I went to Kyusyu to attend my friend's wedding ceremony.

It took about 5 hours by Shinkansen from Tokyo to Kokura.

I spent great time there when I was a university student,

 so I was very glad to be able to visit Kyusyu again and meet friends.

I stayed in Kokura that night with friends and next day we moved to Fukuoka to meet another friend.

We had lunch together at chinese restaurant.

I ordered 'Chanpon' which is noddle from Nagasaki.

It was good.

We talked with a lot.

I met many friends in visiting Kyusyu this time.

Any have children already, one is pregnant,

and the another will marry next January.

Situations around us is vary and we are busy everyday

but ourselves haven't been changed.

We have dreams or study for own goals,

and it is same with time when we were student.

Meeting friends of university motivated me a lot.

It was very precious time to me.

Tan tan noddle in Ikebukuro

Today I had Tan tan noodle at Sichuan food restaurant in Ikebukuro.

Sichuan food is known for being spicy. 

I wanted to order Tan tan noddle

but if it was too spicy I thought I couldn' t eat,

so I asked waitress how spicy it was.

The waitress seemed to be Chinese.

She answered that it was not so spicy,

so I ordered.

As soon as I began to eat,

I found that it was so hot and spicy....

Maybe this level of spicy is not special for Chinese, I learned...

Anyway even though it was so spicy and hot but I liked it.

It was not bad.

Jyangara noodle

Last Saturday after I ate pancake with my friends in Harajyuku,

we moved to Akihabara and ate noodle for dinner at Jyangara.

My friend told me that Jyangara is famous noodle restaurant,

but I didn't know.

I ordered the noodle without soup.

Seafood powder was put on the noodle.

I liked it.

Actually this day I ate noodle for lunch too,

but I like noodle better than any other main food,

so I don' t care about it at all

and even every meals are noodle is good for me.

This morning I had meeting with American using web on my job.

It was the first time to have English session to me

so I was nervous a little.

Sometimes American couldn't understand my English and

I also couldn't understand what they spoke.

I really recognized that I have to train my English speaking and listenning skill....

This kind of experience is precious because it can motivate me.

The important thing is to keep on doing it.

When I walked around in Akihabara last Sunday,

I found pegions lining up on the electrical wire.

Do they have pigeons meeting from now?

I went to cafe in Harajyuku to have pancake last Saturday.

Two weeks ago when we passed in the front of the cafe,

we found outside menu and photos.

They seemed to be so delicious,

but we had already had sweets then,

so we decided to go there next week.

It is why we went to this cafe last Saturday.

I ordered normal one.

It is so cute!!

Taste was also delicious!

One of my friend ordered pancake with maple cream.

This was also so good!!

 We three people enjoyed sweets so much!

Actually on ther way to this cafe,

we also found another cafe which seems to be good,

so maybe we will go there next time.


When I come back from my hometown to Tokyo,

I found Doraemon cafe latte in the airport!

It was so cute!

I ordered it soon!

The taste was also not so bad!!

in my hometown

Last week I went back my hometown and stayed at my parent's house for whole a week.

I could enjoy spending time with my fammily, meeting with my friends.

I found any tomatos in my parent's house.

I made tomato flower with them!

It is smiling!!

One day I went out the park with my friend.

The autumn festival was being held and I ate pumpkin softcream there.

It was clear pumpkin color so I expected the actual pumpkin taste,

but it was not so much.

The other day when I got off the train, I could see really beautiful setting sun.

By seeing this I found that summer has gone and autumn is near.

It may already has come.

Today I had a headache in the morning and I didn't want to go out,

so I baked breads.

I made panda, smile face, and bear with bread.

At first I wanted to make many pandas but it was a little difficult,

so I gave up and made smile and bear.

They are easier!

Taste was not so bad.

I will eat them for tomorrow breakfast too!

Today I went to 'SHIMURA' near Mejiro station to eat shaved ice.

It was my first visiting there.

When I met my cousin last Saturday,

he told me about this cafe and recommended me to go there anytime.

He said that he hadn't eaten such a delicious shaved ice ever.

I expected so much to hear that

because he knows well about many delicious cafe and restaurant around Tokyo.

I chose azuki bean taste.


As he told me, it was so good.

Ice was so fine and it was sophisticated taste,

and I also think it was more delicious than usual shaved ice.

But my expecting was too high so I was not so surprised to eat it.

Anyway, it was hot day today and it was well chosen!

I was happy to eat it.

Thursday, September 8, 2011


Last night I talked with my friend by skype and then we talked about pancake.

Afterthat I began to feel like eating pancake!

So I made it this evening.

I made panda pankake.

I abbreviate 'panda pancake' to 'PANCAKE'!!

I used rice powder for pancake and I hadn't used it till today.

I haven't tasted  pancake yet, I will do tomorrow morning for breakfast.

They will be in my stomach soon...I am so sorry, two pandas!!
