New!




Cheery 2010! Everything looks and feels brand new!

Bear is back to office in his handsome new shoes, though all he wants is to nestle at our home sparkling new.

I'm urged to take up a new class this year, Ikebana ( flower arrangement in Japanese style ). Hmm, we'll see... You know the Chinese idiom that describes uncouthness? ~ hands-like-feet, and feet-like-hands... Well, I'm a lot like that. =P

I couldn't resist using the forbiddenly pricey new plates that we've received some time ago.

And tried some new おせち料理 ( New year dishes )that needed no preparation. I had them purchased from stores, unpacked, presented on dishes and voila, the table's done! =D

And maybe what I'd like now is a renewed
stomach to bag food. Over-eating has ruined me. Bleah.

So! what's new with the year of Tiger? Hope that it's gonna stride in roaring good cheer! 幸運を招いてね。

こんばんわ、スターダストさん
新しい1年の門出を、祝います。
まさに、新しい家での、喜びはやってきました。
プレートの出番は、今。
料理の一つ一つに、深い意味が有り、
そして、継承して行く事が、私達の勤めです。
栗きんとんの誘惑は、甘く、さからう事さえ許されず、美味しそうだわ。

寅年に叫ぶは、猫の親玉なり。:D
なんてね。
今年も、よろしくお願いいたします。
