It's sakura season in Japan. We bought this sakura mochi from Sun Moulin @ Isetan. Filled with red bean paste, it's both salty and sweet. But I can't really taste any sakura (how does sakura taste anyway?)
Our friend D & L went last month and caught the full bloom in Tokyo *envious*. Went to their place today and saw their photos, it's very nice! We never caught the full sakura bloom where pink fills the trees and everywhere looks like a dreamland.
The bloom we caught in 2008 Hokkaido was slightly different, the sakura was of a different variety, it was much bigger. And the trees we saw at a secluded park was shorter.
Here are some pictures to recapture our sakura moments.
Continuing my cooking adventure with beef, I fried it with asparagus on a separate day. Found the meat not as tender as I would like. Not sure if it's the cooking time of the beef or the cut of the beef. Would have liked it if there were more gravy to eat with rice. Will try cooking it again too.
After 8 months of good health, flu came knocking again. Well, I did have a couple of sniffles and cough last year, but it was nothing as horrible as what I'm feeling now.
Have the flu symptoms, runny nose, itchy nose and sniffling like a leaked tape. And I was breaking out in sweat so much over the last 2 day/nights. It could also be the heat but not when I'm shivering and hot at the same time in the middle of the night.
And the worst thing is, I couldn't sleep. I have no idea why. I took my meds and I just can't relax or fall into sleep. It should get better but I'm just feeling lousy now.
Anyway, whilst I was at the clinic, there was a boy who wore squeaky shoes and it was giving me a headache! I went out and snapped a picture of the old "shophouse" instead.
