[Personal] New Year’s Resolutions

New Year’s Resolutions are not a new tradition. They have been part of the New Year’s traditions for centuries, dating back to the Babylonians. But even though many people nowadays do not make any resolutions for the new year and even think it to be silly, when they hear others make the typical resolutions like losing weight or quit smoking, I am convinced that everyone should have them.

Eatyoursushi Live Event at the Youtube Space Roppongi

So we just got home from an amazing evening, thank to Simon and Martina from Eatyoursushi (formerly Eatyourkimchi) and I just have to tell you all about it. Two weeks ago, during one of the Eatyoursushi Episodes, they announced that there would be a special episode filmed on March 5th where Fans can take part.…

Dark Waters by Rain Oxford

Magic – Murder – Mystery

Though only vaguely connected to Japan I want to introduce you to “Dark Waters” from Rain Oxford, the first book of her Elemental series. Rain Oxford is a teacher who has been writing for more than half of her life. The Asian-influenced cultures she creates were inspired by Japan, where she attended Ritsumeikan University in…

New blogging companion – EOS Kiss X7

I’m so excited I couldn’t stop myself from bragging (^___^) Just about two hours ago the doorbell rang and I finally got my birthday present (which didn’t make it on time for Tuesday) and it’s an absolutely gorgeous EOS Kiss X7! I have been wanting to buy a camera for so long now and always…

Even more adventures in 2016

I hope that all of you had a good start into the new year. I am writing this post a few days earlier, because I hope, that by now I am celebrating with my husband and friends in Osaka. I am not only looking very much forward to our visit in Osaka, but also to…

My favorite quote for December

After I saw this quote on a calendar in my moms house it stuck with me these last weeks. Especially in the holiday season, when lighting even one small candle can evoke the Christmas spirit and fill the room with cozy light. But next to the literal meaning of the quote, it holds true for…

Side Note

While I didn’t want to admit it to myself, I think it is pretty obvious that I will not be able to chronologically post all the things we did/do in a timely manner. Since our Taiwan adventures (that still have a few blog posts left) we went to Shanghai, my friends came to visit me…

One step at a time

You might be wondering what happened to our Taiwan adventures (after all we’ve been back quite some time) but this time I have at least a (somewhat) good reason. The last weeks I was busy making my first steps as a freelancer. Even before coming to Japan, working as a freelancer here seemed to be…

This is my house.

It’s vacation time!

I am so excited! I haven’t had a proper vacation in ages and I desperately want one. My husband pretty much felt the same and because he can’t take too much vacation at a time we decided to make a short-trip. My husband wanted to go somewhere outside of Japan, but with limited time we…
