Paris part 1

Can't believe that 5 years passed by already since my first visit.
People say things change but some don't - such as Louvre, beautiful as always :)

Again I've abandoned the blog for a while..
BUT I will have some updates soon!
Have a few big events to attend these days and...I'm going to Italy again this summer!!
Actually Southern Italy and Paris.. I know the best would be just southern Italy but we just can't give up Paris somehow...
Wish I had more holidays and budget to travel more!

Shaved ice - Asami

We visited Nagatoro area in Chichibu, Saitama the other day and went to the local hidden gem - Asami Reizo, a Japanese cafe famous for its shaved ice (かき氷).
Nothing can be better than having delicate natural shaved ice made from spring water in the Japanese yard in a warm day. I was just so happy that we found this place!

We ordered White Peach and the Kuromitsu Maccha Azuki. The shaved ice just melt right away while I poured the Kuromitsu syrup over it.

Definitely worth the trip if you have a car and have a chance to visit this area.

Eventually my husband is taking a day off and we are planning to visit somewhere near Tokyo.
The cherry blossom season is almost over but here comes spring...
Sorry the photos are blurry :P

In front of our office

My favorite Sakura Season in Japan!All cherry blossom trees blooming in front our office in Akasaka in Tokyo, mostly in pale pink and some pure white.
Actually the road itself is called Sakura-zaka which means the slope of cherry blossom.
The Randy Cafe right beside the building is also famous as a filming location for TV shows and news, 
which now is 100% seated during lunch hours as well as after work.

Here are two photos I posted on Instagram lately.
Will have more photos coming soon (hopefully).


Actually I have an Instagram account and have been posting for quite a while.
If you are interested, please follow me @heelsandmacarons for more frequent update.

Hi there

I still can't believe that it has been more than 6 months already since the last post.
Lazy Me.

Hopefully I will be able to update sometime soon (possibly in Chinese/English/Japanese.)
