Debailleul (Special Feature:Valentine Sweets 2011 part8)



These fantastic chocolate bonbons are from Debailleul. The ganache chocolates are very good. There are two kinds of ganaches “milk ganache and bitter ganache”.


I love the inside which a strong passion fruit and milk chocolate taste does happenings.



I also love the beautiful chocolate boxes so much. Once I have eaten the chocolates, use the box to keep my small stuffs and keepsakes.

A Year-end short trip to Kyoto-Arashiyama: Last day part2

kyoto arashiyama 9_1

We’ve said “Good bye” to HOSHINOYA Kyoto, and we made for Kyoto station to
take a Shinkansen to Tokyo.
We’ve got a small lunch, “Onigiri” (rice balls) at Kyoto station for just in
case because we were not hungry yet….

However, we had all of them anyway as soon as we got on the Shinkansen.

It started to snow in the morning. We knew that it must be freezing outside
from the window.

We had a breakfast, HOSHINOYA special breakfast in American style.
We had fresh juice, yogurt with fresh fruit, green salad and tea.
Also, we chose a plain omelet with a sausage.
Moreover, we had a selection of 5 original breads of Kyoto’s renowned
bakery, “Shinshindo”. There is a toaster in a room, so we were able to
enjoy the freshly-baked breads.
Again, we were so full that one could hardly move.

They don’t care right or left, cover fingers as ordinary mitten or not.

Tokyo GUGGIG Shop

I’d like to introduce a really cute Tokyo guidebook from Thailand.
This small, pocket-sized book was created by my Thai friend Tukta, who gathered and compiled the information.
As seen from her eyes, Tokyo is a fun, exciting city that is virtually overflowing with kawaii (cute) things.

“Was Tokyo always this fun?!” I thought, discovering a new fascination with the city where I live.
Even if you can’t read the Thai language, the hand-drawn maps have shop names and landmarks marked in English.
If you’ll be traveling to Thailand, make sure you stop by a book store and pick up a copy!
