The Lunch at Panino Vino


This weekend my college friend M was in town!

She currently lives in Australia and is newly engaged! (Whoop whoop!) So you can imagine, we had a lot to talk about. A LOT. We were literally there for hours.

It felt good to talk. I know how we have technology now so we can phone, email and/or skype each other even though we live far away. But still, there's nothing like an official gabfest face to face, don't you think?





We had delicious panini and tea while we caught up. I love the bread they use here. So good. We also had dessert, which I didn't even have time to take a picture of because we scarfed it down so fast :D

M brought me my absolute favorite Australian omiyage, Tim Tams, but even better, she also gave me one of her drawings!

 I love it. M draws so beautifully. Her drawings are always so sweet and kind, you can really see who she is through her work. I already have this drawing up on my wall and smile every time I see it! x


Happy long weekend everyone! (Also, happy regular weekend for people who aren't in Japan!)

  1. Penguin!

    I was blissfully ignorant until Aussie colleagues introduces me to TimTams. Catch me at the right moment, and I'll confess that I like it more than KitKats. ;)

    1. Are you kidding? They are much much better than KitKats! I consumed so much TimTams while in Australai, I almost went into a coma. But they are so hard to resist! :D
