How we celebrate

The end of finals & the end of our first semester in Japan.

that would be a "big chou cream" (cream puff)

those employees do not have SARS. In Japan if you are sick you wear a face mask so you don't get others around you sick too.

for any Americans who might be curious: those employees do not have SARS. In Japan if you are sick you wear a face mask so you don't get others around you sick too.

We stopped to take a sample (hehe..) & this guy talked us up about these fancy cream puffs - psh...convenience store 'jumbo chou' is good enough for my friend!

Actually this is just a prequel to our celebrations – tonight we are all getting dressed up and going out for all-nighter #2 in Shibuya to celebrate Amy’s birthday early. 楽しみ!

Ok, and…I’m flying home in THREE days (just for part of Spring break, not for good!). What should I do with my last few days? Suggestions? Requests?

  1. THREE days!!! YAY : )
    congrats on being done with your exams!
    おめでとう〜♫

  2. Have you been to Yokohama? If not, definitely worth a go. Otherwise, if you like funky art, crazy spaces, and okonomiyaki, DesignFestaGallery in harajuku.

  3. oh you look so happy after that brownie! congrats // that is infinity cutepoints!

  4. I always wondered what those puffs were in the grocery stores and konbini = ) Congrats on finishing up exams, I’m sure you’re looking forward to the break back home, catch up with family and friends. Have a great break!

    I think Yokohama is very cool too, maybe you can check out Landmark Tower and have a drink on their top floor bar (but that might be pretty expensive!).

    Otherwise, I’d recommend catching a train to Kamakura and checking out the temples if you haven’t already. Decidedly anti-climactic, but I thought you could use the peace and quiet to balance out your all night bender = )

    P.S. thank you for your kind comment on my blog Allison! With your permission may I please link to your blog?
