Gardening Day

Hi hi~

How was your day? The weather in Melbourne today was scary~! We experienced strong winds that caused few trees to fall. Luckily, it was not in my area and I am glad that the winds has been more stable now.

Since it was not a good day to go somewhere, I just did some gardening and cleaning today! So it will be a super short post. I don't want to bore everyone to sleep. Hahaha!! (─‿‿─)

In my last post, I mentioned that I will show off (≧◡≦) ♡make a post on my little herb plants. So here you go....

I have mint, coriander, chamomile and some lettuce salad that looked like weed. XDDD

I feel very proud of with my mint and coriander plant. My coriander and lettuce was planted from seeds and I am very happy that they actually sprouted. The coriander starts to grow looking like a coriander but I am not sure about my lettuce. Hahahah XDD.

Now move on to my mint story......I also planted mint seeds but they never grow. And one day, while I was cleaning weeds in my backyard, I saw this mint-looking-like plant growing in the corner of my backyard fence. To my surprise, it also smelled like mint and I decided to transport them to a nice looking home. Lucky me!!

My chamomile plants were bought from a Sunday market since the seeds are not suitable to be sowed during winter. I hope they will start flowering so that I can make some nice chamomile herbs tea. 

With fresh mint available, I can always pluck some to make fruit-infused waters at anytime. For those who are interested in the ingredient for infusion water, you can refer to this site. But you can always mix and match with the ingredients. I heard they are good for detox and diet. Though I doubt I will lose any weight!!o(TヘTo) 
Among those 3 that I made, my favourite is the one with strawberry and watermelon infusion (left-side). ヽ(♡‿♡)ノ

Last bonus, I also enjoy re-plant/re-using plant. That way we can save money LOL!!!! Here we have leek-chan ^__^

That's it for today. I hope I can sleep tonight. I have been experiencing insomnia and the creepy sound of wind howling had made me awake for the whole night yesterday! Maybe someone can recommend some drinks for a good night sleep?

Till then....BYE~

The End or The Beginning?

Hello everyone! I am back again!

First of all, I would like to apologize to anyone who has accidentally discovered was reading my blog for these past few years. I am sorry for my sudden disappearance or hiatus.( ╥ω╥ ) Many things happened during these few years. Good one and also bad one.

BUT overall, I am back and will continue to maintain my deserted and abandoned blog.

Just a quick update of my life from these few yearssssss~~ I am no longer staying in Japan and currently staying in Australia now. But I may move again soon! Hahahaha~~ Live your life as a traveller!! LOL \( ̄▽ ̄)/

Just a quick update of my Australia's life in the past 2 years. Nothing special and nothing exciting. Just calm, peace, laid back and I have become super lazy~~ So I did not update my blog. ┐( ̄~ ̄)┌ LOL.

Guess I am not too lazy since I manage to complete my master degree. Guess that's the reason I can't update my blog. Have been busy writing assignments. (And hence all the excuses, busyness, laziness, etc.....). 

After graduation is another new life! Since life is pretty much stable and slow in Australia, I am into killing plants gardening. I am not talented in gardening and don't have green fingers but I am very proud to introduce my new family~!

This is V-chan. V-chan is a 14 months old avocado plant that I planted from the seed of an avocado fruit that I bought from the supermarket. It's a miracle that V-chan is able to become this big and is still growing more and more leaves. Deep down, I wanted to call V-chan a "he/male/boy?" but male plant does not bear fruit??? and I want V-chan to give me avocado grandkids! (♡°▽°♡) So I decided to just remain gender-less and called my plant, V-chan. But I will keep taking care of V-chan regardless whether there are fruits or not.

This is another new avocado plant, 1 or 2 weeks old since root has been sighted. No name at the moment. See that root that are growing from the seed~~ I'm a proud plant caretaker!! Hahahahah!!! My proud symbol of the beginning of life, just like this blog LOL 

I don't know what to write for my first post after such a long time. But I will continue to write some random stuff about my life and my interests. I might introduce my small little weeds herbs garden in the next post. ヽ(>∀<☆)ノ I will also update my life journey and travel in Japan to make up for my disappearance!

Till then, goodnight/ おやすみ

Mount. Takao

Hiichan desu~~!!

First of all! OMG!! Sorry for not blogging for such a long time!!Σ(゜д゜|||)
Lots of things happened in October and I started working part-time.
October was not a great month for me. (ノД`) Well, whatever that passed has passed.
Life move on and we should concentrate on the future. ゝ(^O^)丿
Enough of babbling~ XDD

It's autumn now in Japan (well almost winter already).
I noticed most of my posts were summer related topics
So I'll take a break from posting about Hokkaido and post something more recent.

Went to Mount. Takao 2 weeks ago and it was AWESOME!
My first mountain climbing in Japan. It was super tiring, given I hate sports and will try to avoid at any cost. (~o~)
But the view was totally worth it!

We reached the top just in time for sunset! ゝ(^O^)丿

Can even viewed Mount. Fuji from Mount. Takao. XDDD

Also managed to stay till night view!

But it was so scary when we were going down the mountain. The road was TOTAL DARK! Lucky with the advance of technology, we got our phone with us! Hahaha! Funny none of us bought torchlight! (゜~゜)

Lastly, famous food that you should try at Mount. Takao are soba and dango!
Tempura soba~

Dango! The darker one was black sesame flavour~~<3
Both tasted awesome!

 Grape soft-serve cream

That's it for today!

I think my style has turned normal recently due to part time job. You're not allowed to have a bright hair color. So, I dyed my hair to dark brown. 
And it's so cold now. I am wearing 3 layers of clothes! I can't stand cold and I really hate winter!! (´Д`;)
Don't really have the mood to dress up, plus it was for mountain climbing. So forgive my common/normal style. 

See you next time.

Hokkaido: Otaru

Good day everyone.

Haven't been updating for ages.
Just finished my school exam. Everything seems good so far.(゜∇゜)

It's getting cooler here in Tokyo, guess autumn is here already~! Goodbye summer (ノД`). I really enjoyed myself during summer~ Hope autumn will be good to me too! Hahaha XDDD
OK let's continue with Hokkaido post!
Went to Otaru as well during my stay in Hokkaido.(・∀・)

View of Otaru~

Some of the views above were taken when riding rickshaw. Thanks to Inu-san (<---I can't read all the Kanji on his name tag. There's an Inu kanji there so he said he was fine with that! ごめん~ My kanji is too bad) (ノД`)

Otaru also has lots of interesting crafts such as glass and music boxes.

Hokkaido is also well known for marimo (moss ball) but I don't think the shop sells any real marimo, replica perhaps?. The real marimo is a protected species in Japan at Lake Akan.

There is also an English guide on how to take care of your marimo.

That's it for today. I got so much backlogs of pictures!!!
Need to work harder!
Good night~

Hokkaido: Okurayama Ski Jump

Good day everyone!

Well, not really a good day today. We have typhoon here in Tokyo today.
All my shopping plan has been canceled. (<--- this is also the reason why I am updating post today? XDD)

Went to Hokkaido last time and gonna start posting little by little regarding the trip.
I am too lazy to post much (*゜―゜)

I was really thankful to the Tachibana Family during my stay in Hokkaido. (*^_^*)

Went to ski-jump the first thing I arrived at Hokkaido.
It was where the Winter Olympic took place.

Ride cable car up for a better view of the city~ (=゜ω゜)ノ
Price stated at the photo below XDD

Tachibana-san~~ Up up the hill~ ≧∇≦

The whole view of the Sapporo city~~!!
Super prettyyyyy (ノ゜o゜)ノ

Blur photo. Is either my camera was being nasty or I was too stupid. I didn't realized the auto focus lens had set to 'Manual Mode'. (>Д<;)

See you next time~

Going for some sunflower viewing tomorrow~ The weather better be nice tomorrow! ゝ(^O^)丿
