We've had 30 minutes of rain that turmed to delicate, fluttering, snow! We were told we could have snow in August or September because we're 500m above sealevel, here, but I didn't quite believe it. Mind you, the icey deck I slipped on should have been a clue. The snow is mostly gone after 10 minutes … Continue reading SNOW!!!!

What does a good short-shorts-wearing, kawaii ("cute", well, cutesy might be closer) girl do in winter so as not to freeze her *%$ off? Of course! Why didn't I think of that? 🙂
One of my local Supermarkets is called Paré Marché and at the moment its walls are littered with posters wishing us "Merry Paré Marché!" Stores all over the city have similar posters and I'm not quite sure whether they are misunderstanding the phrasing or just approaching the whole issue of the commercial overload of this … Continue reading Merry Nagoya!
A quick post with some quick notes for friends of the blog and blogger 🙂 For NZ. K., in case she has any time at all in her busy busy schedule on her trip home, thinking of you and letting you know we won the quiz last night! Yay! For readers waiting for … Continue reading A quick note and a huge laugh to share!
