Pancake Day!

Ok, so pancake day was ages ago, and it’s not really celebrated in Japan. But I missed it this year, and I wanted PANCAKES

My friend came over, and we made pancakes with fresh sweet mango sauce! (Comment if you want the recipe)

Topped with ice cream and fresh Mangos, and vanilla macadamia nut coffee on the side, I can say that this was in the top ten of my favourite brunches!

The best laid plans

I had a day off – original plan looked something like this…

But instead it went something like this…

  1. Hear flatmates talking and laughing – wake up.
  2. make coffee
  3. receive unexpected guests in my pajamas
  4. go and pick-up coffee table and rice-cooker
  5. Go to a friend’s house and make COOKIES
  6. Come home and do spontaneous karaoke from my iPad with flatmate
  7. do cross-stitch while watching my friends play-fight

Isn’t it wonderful when the best laid plans go to pot?!

What is it about Sendai?

It was both an easy decision, and a difficult one to decide to move here.

I knew I’d be leaving my friends, job, and beautiful room back in Tokyo, as well as distancing myself further from my wonderful family back in sunny old England.
