寅色新年


Happy Chinese New Year and Valentine's Day!
中国正月おめでとうございます。そしてハッピーバレンタイン!

On the CNY eve, We were invited to the party at my flatmates' friends.
There were many of us and too little space, but we enjoy the home-made dishes from Hong Kong.
中国正月のイブ、私たちのフラットメイトの友人宅のパーティにお呼ばれ。
沢山の人でお家ぎゅうぎゅうでしたが、香港手料理をたっぷりいただきました。




hungry boys & cooking girls...
Thank you so much Rain, Alicia and others!
腹ぺこ男子と、料理する女子…。
レイン、アリシア、皆様ごちそうさまでした!


And on the 14ths, It was the cold morning in Columbia flower Market.
with Chieko, Tommy, and Alison.
そして14日。とっても寒い朝コロンビアフラワーマーケットへ向かいました。
ちえこトミーアリソンと。




strawberry&raspberry + cream cheese bagel with bubbly hot choco made my morning.
イチゴとラズベリーとクリームチーズサンドベーグル、バブリーココアが朝ごはん。


this is the flower for CNY. named "pussy willow". i love it!
中国正月のお花「ねこやなぎ」。かわいい!


chocolate x vanilla striped "tiger" shortbread from Tommy. mmmh it was so tasty!
Setaka finished in a min. Tommy, Arigato.
Tommyからのぷれぜんと。チョコとバニラの寅柄ショートブレッド。
うーん美味しかった!セタカなんて1分でたいらげちゃった。ありがとうね。


I rushed to meet Setaka for London Zoo, but he was a hour late...Kora.
feeling better after exchanging Valentine gifts.
セタカに会うためロンドン動物園に急ぎ足。しかし彼は1時間遅刻…こら。
バレンタインプレゼントを交換して気分回復。


beautiful rose brooch from Setaka.
セタカからはバラのブローチ。



and a scarf from album di famiglia and pair hearts of lavender sachet from me.
ok. let's got to zoooo!
わたしからは album di famigliaのマフラーと、ハート型のラベンダーサシェ。
それでは、動物園へレッツゴー!







I was amazingly happy to finish my adventure with a load of Alpacas. so close!
最後の締めにアルパカの群れに遭遇してとってもハッピー!近かったなー。

Then The 2 Very Hungry Caterpillars headed...
そしてはらぺこあおむし2匹が向かったのは。。。




Sushi Say at Willesden Green.
very delicate, comfortable sushi created by Mr.&Ms Shimizu.
Though they have been running business for 16 years, the restaurant has been renovated 3 years ago. so you can feel the both of their history and freshness.

ウィレスデングリーンにある鮨清(すしせい)。
清水夫妻が創った、とってもデリケートで優しいお寿司です。
16年も続くレストランですが、3年前に改築されたばかり。歴史と新鮮さの共存する空間でした。


I wish my life will be keep on striping!

i am always dreaming to visit Hawaii someday... in my imagination i can swim like a dolphin and fly like a seagull.
