fruit parlor fukunaga

For my husband’s birthday/our wedding anniversary we went to Fruit Parlour Fukunaga – you can follow them on Twitter here.  It was delightful!  As you can see, we went greedy!

First up we have a cherry parfait and (large, I think) plate of fresh fruit.

Then the fruit sandwiches which I liked very much. I hadn’t ever had a fruit sandwich before coming to Japan, but now I have delighted upon them, I have become quite fond. You can find them at the supermarkets and conbinis too if you don’t have time to go to a fruit parlour. The ...

clothes diary

I feel like I have a lot of clothes, so I listed them all out and it turns out I have 39 or 47 if you include coats and scarves.

what?

I have decided to keep a track of what I wear for the next month to see if I need all of my clothes and really to see what I actually wear.  I have seen/heard a variety of versions of this but for me, keeping track using a list I’ve made seems the easiest.

october memories

I went to Sumi-Bio with my friend for lunch – don’t let the name put you off (sounds like the sort of place they might do experiments on you).  They cater for vegans, vegetarians, meat-eaters, everyone (maybe)!  It was really nice – I had a mixed veg set/BIO野菜(ビオやさい) 5種盛り.

Then we went to Tully’s and my friend had not a clue what I was on about when I said ‘Tully’s’ in my English accent. タリーズ in Japanese, obviously.  We had a similar problem ...

This week I’m going to write about frugal things I do to stay cool. It’s gotten so hot here in Tokyo this last week, in the 30’s pretty much every day. I am definitely not made for such weather – I hate it in fact, so let’s go with the theme of cooling down on these hot days.

Get a fan and use that fan. Of course I mean an electrical one but I also use the handheld one above when I’m out and about.  I use my electric one in the day and we also ...

april memories and may wish list

april memories
I’ve been really terrible for blogging recently, I apologise for that.  I haven’t been tending to take many photos either whilst I’ve been out and about but I’ll share the ones that I have taken.

I started off the month by going to see the cherry blossoms (you can see more pictures here if you would like).  This below two photos are at Yasukuni Shrine.

Then these were taken at The Imperial Palace, at the moat.  The queue for the boats was ridiculous.

 
The new Scott & Rivers album came out in April (go buy it if ...
