That White Day Dinner in Shinjuku


My annual White Day nomikai.
My first time at a kushi-yaki restaurant.

So delicious, so fun!


Look how beautiful the cherry blossoms are!


Currently overdosing on White Day chocolate.


Spring flowers to brighten up the bathroom.


White mocha on White Day!

That Moment of Silence

*Throwback Thursday: I'm slowly (very slowly) going to be bringing my old posts to this blog.


Today we will observe a moment of silence at 2:46pm. 


Last year March 11th was a Friday and I was waiting for the subway with my boss at Nishi Shinjuku Station, planning to head to a forum, when the alarmingly loud buzzer sounded, signalling an earthquake to come. And it did.

Last Friday, I was once again standing at the same station with a co-worker, heading to the same forum that I ended up never reaching last year. This year, the subway came rolling into the station and we got on, heading to the forum.

But my heart was beating a mile a minute.

That Day It Snowed In Shinjuku

*Throwback Thursday: I'm slowly (very slowly) going to be bringing my old posts to this blog.


It snowed again!

The soft sound of snow falling is the best.
Winter at its best...don't you think?
