Time to Fika!

Lately, I have been drinking Gevalia decaf House Blend coffee. OMGosh, Gevalia how I love thee! So smooth and delicious. Like the wonderful Swedes partaking in the ritual called Fika, I eat a pastry or some good yumminess along with my cuppa joe. Today it was a Japanese steam cake. Oh steam cake, it has been too long. I’ve blogged about them before so you may already know mine love for them.

Do you drink coffee or tea? What’s your fave?

Cjpn cake 092609

Last Saturday, after an early morning class and surprise quiz, BigHache and I went to Circle Japan for some J-conversation and to say good bye to Mr. Mazda. I don’t know about you but I crave a place where I can roll up to the bar and say, “I’ll have the usual.” I had that in Japan and I am trying to have that here in the States, too. On this day, though, it was a little bittersweet as Mr. Mazda’s time in Jax was complete and he was on his way back home overseas. Mrs. Circle Japan (from here on out known as “CJ”) prepared one of her cakes for Mr. Mazda’s going away party later that night. I don’t know if you have ever had a cake like this but let me tell you, they are SO GOOD and wont kill your diet and won’t turn you into a diabetic. The sweetness is very light and with the fruit the entire dessert is refreshing. Mmmm. Don’t those strawberries look gorgeous? Yes, they do!

While waiting for Mr. Mazda to make his appearance at the J-grocery store, Bighache and I watched Doraemon and chatted with CJ. Do you like anime? Are you a true Otaku? I have to admit that I DO like anime but to a certain extent. Doraemon is a much loved anime among generations in Japan. It has almost TWO THOUSAND!! (2000) episodes. I watched this playful anime in CJ’s shop because the Japanese used was easy to catch and it was on a flat screen TV. Must to watch!! >__< I tend to like some of Japan’s anime because it isn’t all super powers or the world ending. Just school life, playing tennis or solving crimes are enough for me…well, some times. I do like some magical anime and I try to avoid the fan service like the plague! Read the rest of this entry »

Incoming psychic vision! A steam cake is on its way to me!

I don’t know about you but I love me some Japanese snacks. Of course, it all started with Pocky then when I got to Japan it exploded into an extravaganza of “MUST TRY THIS! MUST TRY THEM ALL!”

I believe this fascination with Japanese snacks started while I was in college. Hitting up the Asian food shops, perusing the shelves in hopes of finding something that would fascinate my taste buds… I miss those times. At one point I even expanded it to where Fridays were my day to seek out something new and experience it for my own tasty satisfaction. You can only guess what level of wild I went while in Japan land. Read the rest of this entry »
