Twilighters gathered in Tokyo

Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner attended the Tokyo premiere of “Twilight” in Tokyo at Ebisu Garden Palace on February 27th. The film won’t start until April 4th in Japan, which I really can’t believe.

It was the coldest day of this winter; under sleety raining and windy conditions, Twilighters were waiting to see them for hours.

MOOMIN Bakery & Cafe

MOOMIN Bakery & Cafe

The Moomins (Swedish: Mumintroll, Finnish: Muumi) are the central characters in a series of books and a comic strip by Finnish illustrator and writer Tove Jansson, originally published in Swedish by Schildts in Finland.

Moomin 3: The Complete Tove Jansson Comic Strip

They are a family of trolls who are white, round and furry in appearance, with large snouts that make them resemble hippopotamuses.

My friend gave me some presents from MOOMIN Bakery & Cafe. A stuffed Moomin, Moomin family pasta and a spaghetti tong. The pasta and the spaghetti tong are shaped like Hattifatteners which are my favorite character.
