Back to blogging!

Greetings from Thailand.

I strongly apologize for leaving my blog stranded for one month to be exact. I'm now in Bangkok, Thailand and missing Toronto so very badly.

I had so much fun in Japan (shopping, sightseeing and shopping). Atchan and I went to Hakone for onsen at the right timing. It was Fall season in Hakone, the weather was just right and the scenery was breathtaking. We stayed at a hotel called Hakone Ichinoyu. It was decorated traditionally mixed with modern Japanese style.

They welcomed us with some sweets.

I was too embarrassed to share the onsen with other people, so we decided to book a room with a private outdoor onsen.

These strange socks........

go with these flip-flops.

There are more photos I'd love to share on my blog. Please, please be patient with me while I'm adjusting to my new lifestyle (sounds weird, I know) in BKK :)

I went shopping for souvenirs yesterday for my family and friends in Japan, look what I got. I found Bellagio's hot cocoa to be very addictive. They are rich, smooth and flavorful. I also love the packaging too.

I got Ghirardelli coffee for Atchan's family. I heard they love drinking coffee.

Lemon curd for myself. I love it on toasts. Yum!

I hope they will love my souvenirs :)

Finally, my sister's apartment is done. I helped her unpack and setup the place just the way she likes, and here it is!

It looks pretty simple, but took so much effort. The curtains are handmade by my sister. I think she did a really good job!

We got tired from unpacking, so we made simple Thai green curry for dinner :)

Going away

Hello. Sorry for the lack of updates for the past few days. I have been helping my sister with moving. It will be her own very first apartment. I'm very happy for the new changes in her life.

Also, I have very exciting news.

I'm leaving Canada in two weeks!! It is finalized that I will be travelling to Japan and then to Thailand.

My shop will be closed from November 15 - November 30. I will try to respond emails as much as I possibly could. Of course, I will keep my blog going. It would be so nice to share photos from Japan and Thailand here while I'm travelling :)

The shop will re-open in Thailand. I will have to stay in Thailand for a while, probably until my Japanese visa is done. Please be patient with me while I'm settling things.

I'm ready for new adventures.
