I got a cute dessert cup at convenience store. Japanese modern-style brush drawing rabbits (USAGI) are hopping around the package with a big spoon. There’s a small story for this sweets – “Moon rabbits are making this dessert secretly, it’s a dream (YUME) flavor of cream cheese on vanilla milk.” Cream cheese and vanilla milk flavored jelly were sweetened by Wasanbon, high quality Japanese sugar.

vintage SEIKO ladies bracelet watch

vintage SEIKO ladies' watch ('68)

I don’t know the eras in real time, so maybe it’s not only the throwback sentiment, I’m in love with old time culture and products, especially 1900 – 20s and 50s – 70s.

Through our friend’s ongoing watch-repairing project, he shows me one of his latest works, vintage SEIKO ladies bracelet watch that was manufactured in 1968.
The lovely watch is white gold plated and still shining beautifully. I especially like the tiny cursive SEIKO logo. It’s always fun to wind watches up and hear they start ticking small sounds.

It must be wonderful to have a lunch or a dinner at the garden also.
