Dec's Birthday

Tuesday, 30th April, 2013


Happy Birthday
my younger son, 


17 today. 

This photo was taken in Brisbane City, Australia, long ago. 

Although in absentia, we indeed celebrated his birthday 
with his favourite food - Margherita Pizza and cakes.
Plus a little tipple of white wine for good measure ! 

The cakes were from a shop in Paseo Street; 
they looked delicious and guess what ? 
They were ! 

Yum yum......... 

Looking forward to the next birthday dinner :) 

That City

It is a Public Holiday in Japan today. 
Albeit my usual day off..... 

We drove Demi_chan to That City
to meet some friends for lunch. 

L to R: Yukie, Emi and Momo-chan.

Chikako smelling some soap (present). 

Food was really delicious - we all enjoyed eating it.

Of course we went for a drive .... and stopped enroute 
for a delicious Japanese lunch. 

A different profile of This City; taken from the restaurant. 

Looking towards the Azama Mountains. 
There is still snow on there, quite a lot actually. 

We discovered this restaurant by chance and it was great.
Definitely we will return here.

All in all, an expensive day but wonderful nonetheless....
