Treats

Posted on: 10 March 2010

I feel so out of the loop these few days as I have been working hard on an assignment for uni that was due in today. Glad that it's over but I have more to come! Anyway here is a quick post on some of the treats that my dad brought back from Hong Kong for me.

First up is this lovely, vibrant teal knitted vest. My grandma knitted it for my aunt when she was a teenager about 20 years ago but it was never worn! My grandma doesn't knit anymore...but when she did, she was AWESOME!

Other random treats include a whole bunch of Sushi plates, miso soup bowl and a nori (re-read this and realised I typed 'nigiri' before- I obviously have sushi on the brain!) heart shaped puncher. I cannot wait to make some cute bento with this!

It's nice to know that my aunts check my blog from all the way in Hong Kong to see what I've been up to. They said that now I can present my sushi on some awesome sushi plates!

Hello Karen, Esther, Ma ma and yeh yeh.

They also sent over this pretty bangle. I love the colour.

This is where my dads treats come in. He has a sweet tooth and always brings us lots of yummy goodies that you can't get over here. Some of these are from Hong Kong but included are some special Japanese Sweetcorn sweets too! Sound strange but they are really yummy.

More mochi type sweets. My favourite is the green one filled with peanut butter.

This is made me laugh. My dad isn't senile yet...but he brought back a bag of plastic fruit for fun. Make of it what you will. I'm still confused.

Finally...after a long day at uni today, I arrived home to my moms home made won ton noodle soup with plenty of chilli oil. Delicious.

P.S. Everytime I post up Japanese magazine pictures, I'm always amazed at the response. I have plenty more pictures to scan in from over the months, so glad that you guys are all fans!

  10. Arrrgh that food looks so good, may have to pay a visit to Brum when I'm in the U.K..... Love the fact your Gran knitted that; my nan used to knit and make dresses but sadly that fizzled out a long time ago. Your family sounds fun!

  26. Good haul! Thats not the first piece of knitwear you've had from your grandma is it? I seem to remember a couple of amazing pieces! Your posts always make me so hungry. As for the shrinking with age concern, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but my nan used to be almost giant-like at 5ft, and then shrunk to 4ft11! Maybe you could invest in some sort of medieval stretching torture device thing to try and get an extra couple of inches before old age sets in! :) x

  27. Mochi type sweets filled with peanut butter sounds pretty amazing!

  28. OMG. You are the epitome of cuteness in that outfit!! Recently I've been wondering if I could wear teal with purple, and now that I've seen how well you pull it off, it may be something for me to try.

    Hope you enjoy all your new treats! :D
