A Visitor

End of January, 2012
This City.

A little visitor stopped by.......

Take care, my new-found friend  :)

Sendai Gyutan

Sunday, 29th January, 2012

Chikako went to Sendai this weekend and returned with Gyutan.
In and of itself this was not so special, noting that Sendai is famous for Gyutan.
However, upon reading the packaging ..........

Aussies Rock !  :)

 Preparing to warm it gently in the oven.

The week that was.

Sunday Night
8th January, 2011


Happy Birthday to my oldest friend, Viv.
We have been friends since we were 5 years old.
Skype is a wonderful people-connector.


The week that was - the end of the first week of 2012.

 Sunday, the 8th, Chikako prepared a Japanese style dinner.

It is not quite full moon, that`s Monday, 9th January.
But very beautiful, nonetheless.
Plus a shot looking over the A. River.

I received a present from my wonderful student,  Sayaka_san who went
to Tokyo Disney for the New Year`s Countdown.

Soooo delicious !
Thank you, Sayaka  :)
