This is just a little self-reflecting, trying to sound insightful, rambling post about ‘meh’ days and finding the small things in life that makes one happy… 🙂 Living in a foreign country (away from home comforts, family, friends, and pets) does have its ups and downs. While the majority of my time here has been…… Continue reading The Small Things in Life
You’ve probably noticed that I haven’t been all that active here recently, and I apologise for that as I always aim to get posts out at least once a week. However, I think this time there are a few factors that are contributing to my recent lack of posts, and what I believe it really…… Continue reading The Highs and Lows of the New Year
Happy Belated New Year and 久しぶり (hisashiburi) ~ long time no see! It’s been a month since I last posted. Not intentional, mind you, it’s just that things got a bit busy – what with going home for Christmas, coming back to Japan and straight into lessons, and most recently attending a 3-day Skills Development…… Continue reading January Update: Back to School and Snow!
Miyajima is fast becoming one of my all-time favourite places to visit in Hiroshima. The island is the perfect place to visit for the autumn leaves (as well as during spring for the cherry blossoms), and it has great food (okonomiyaki and oysters), photogenic deer, and Daisho-in – a Shingon Buddhist temple (often visited by…… Continue reading Miyajima: Autumn Leaves, Deer and Daisho-in
Today I found myself in the big city with time to spare before visiting my dentist for a check-up (fun times). So, I decided to be a tourist and take a whole lot of random pictures – because why not? 🙂 Looking over to the Peace Memorial Park you can see how the leaves are…… Continue reading Saturday Morning in Hiroshima City: Pics
Nothing much has been happening since sports day, so I thought to share some random pictures with you that I took this weekend. To start with, the part-time science teacher at school is pretty cool – he once made ice-cream through some freaky chemical reaction – and is always showing me his latest trick or…… Continue reading Random Weekend Post in Pics
My wallet cried out in protest today. Well, it should be used to this by now. With the weather slowly changing to autumn and the temperatures dropping, it knows that the ‘season’ is now upon us. And that ‘season’ is when all things cute, fluffy and warm invade my favourite shop! I am a sucker…… Continue reading The ‘Cute and Fluffy’ is Coming…
There is this fabulous little bakery in the depths of the department store where I often buy my groceries. They have some pretty delicious looking things but I do try to resist the temptation of buying something every time I’m down there. Today I decided to have a look around at what they had made…… Continue reading Panda Bread!
I took these three pictures today while walking by the harbour wall to the bus stop after school (one of my island visit schools). Spring is in full swing and summer is not far behind. In fact, today felt more like a summer’s day as it was hot, humid and the typical summer’s haze was…… Continue reading Pictures of Spring
Today was a good day. 🙂 First of all, my 5-in-a-row classes were cancelled because of tests, so I had the freedom to do what I pleased at school today, which was a welcome break for me. Secondly, we had no electricity for two hours because of maintenance, which meant I could read my book…… Continue reading Happy Weekend Everyone!
