One Third of 2010

I can’t believe it’s May already!  It means that 1/3 of 2010 is finished…

 Let’s look back what my 2010 New Year\’s resolution was …


  • be nice to everyone !!
  • don’t get angry, calm myself first before talking ( :p )
  • visit at least one city in Australia (maybe Melbourne)
Ummm … am I doing good?  I think, the first two are ok.  I haven’t got any plan for the domestic trip yet.
In Japan May is considered as early summer.  My dad said he has finished planting seedlings in the rice field.  It is a long weekend in Japan, called Golden Week (GW).  Normally lots of cities carry out festivals during this weekend.  
This weekend for me in Perth was also fine.  I updated few new products on the website , and did some shopping around the city.  I like cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, but my husband likes it with milky butter frosting with green coloring and he’s been eating a lot…  boy.
This Almond Orange cake is one of the cake I like serving when I have a visitor.  It’s also available from Bagelier website.
Oh yes, when I was at Borders I found this wonderful book : “Japanese Children’s Favorite Stories Book”.
It got most of the famous Japanese kids stories!  Momo-tarou (A Peach Boy), Toothpick Warriors etc.  Reading it made me feel all warm inside. 🙂   I wanted to buy it for myself, but I thought it’d be nicer if I buy it for someone else as a gift.  
I hope you had a great weekend too!  😀

    Hi ume, wow I will get that book for my son! When I was young, my father (he was Japanese) bought me I-kyu-San book and he used to read it to me. I loved it! Eventhough I couldn’t read Japanese I like to look at pictures. I definitely get this book for my son. Arigato!!
