HOT DOGS!

We all watched a TV show that a guy from one of those boys bands ate at the No.1 restaurants of several categories listed on yelp in NY. He ate 4 meals per day for 3 days. And off course one of the restaurants was a hot dog stand, and kids started screaming "HOT DOG!". So I purchased the sausages and buns for hot dog dinner tonight. Happy meal.

Just a thought...

Swung by to get some cosmetic supplies in Shibuya, found out the products weren't in inventory due to the Tohoku Earthquake which damaged the factory. It's not a big deal and surely I can live without it, but being hopeful, left a message to call me when the factory would come back again. It's been 3 months and life in Tokyo seems got back to almost normal, but things aren't the same anymore. It might be a cliche, but was the earthquake Pandora? We don't know what's going to happen nor when actually things settle down: omen was left in the box and we human cannot ever have...

茗荷のみそ汁


Myoga and its scent tells me the summer is here. And I cook its miso soup, now it's almost a ritual, to recall my grand mother in mother's end. She was a very good cook, and one of the best dishes she cooked was the Myoga miso soup. She passed away before I had a chance to ask her how to cook it. Such a shame.

Maybe because this miso soup is connected to her memories, every time I cook I feel nostalgic. Scent is one of the most powerful stimulation to bring back memories, so called the Proust Effect.

Wonder if my kids will have any of such reminiscence of me...
