Birthday Present from Sis

The bottom right corner are the Hiyoko cakes, the ones in pink are super thin Dorayaki and the bottom left is choux puff with sweet white bean paste in it. Haven't figured out what the others contain yet....

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of updates, been really tired and stressed from work, heck I'm runnning a slight temperature at this very moment, but somehow I seem so short of time that my illness is the last of my concerns.

Anyway, my birthday is round the corner so my sis decided to get me a pretty special gift especially when it's my 21st birthday (its the coming-of-age for my country). She usually gets me a book or something, not that I don't like them, but it can get bit predictable and boring at times.

But this time, she totally surprised me with a boxed set of Japanee sweets and pastries. These aren't cheap for sure and I really can't imagine how much she paid for it but I'm really grateful especially when it contains my favourite tourist-y snack, Hiyoko (Chick) cakes!

I've loved them ever since my mom's friends brought a small box back and it's really difficult to get your hands on them locally. So I'm extremely happy! Even my dog was busy nosing around the box as he could smell the sweetness inside. Now, I'm just trying to slowly savour these delightful treats and playing a game of, guess-what-it-contains with the other treats.

Thanks Deb! I know I don't show you how much I love you enough, but I just wanna let you know that you're a great sis even if you are a pain at times (>_<)"

P.S. In case anyone's wondering what happened to my coplay on the 1oth, well my team postponed it as everyone, including moi wasn't fully prepared, there were too mahy peices of our costumes missing, so we'll stick to our original plan of cosplaying next year instead. So my next cosplay would be in November, but this time, I've got everything ready by now, so no more cancellations.


  1. That box of Japanese sweets and pasteries looks so delicious! That was so kind and thoughtful of your sister^^

  2. @ さらまり - Yea, they're really delicious! Somehow Japanese sweets are as light as air yet so satisfying without being cloying.

    yeap, I'm lucky to have a sis like her... ^_^
