Japanese Levi's

I can't help it not to post this one. My project which was done two weeks ago :).
I made this "kaban" or bag from my old jeans and add Japanese fabric for the inside.

Rice Ball for the Weekend.

Like I promised  Babzy two months ago, today we're going to make some Onigiri or rice balls. Here are the ingredients, rice, salt, nori or dry seaweed and some fillings: pickles, caviar, and salted veggies.
First, wash your hand and sprinkle some salt.

Second, take some rice and add filling, 
Next, shape the rice using both your hand, do it exactly like the image above. Roll the rice in your hand several times.
Until it shapes like a triangle (thing to ponder :)). Repeat again from the first step with different fillings.
Wrap it with nori and arrange it on a plate. Now it's ready for you.
Happy weekend, Everyone.

What a day

It's a tiring day. Just wanna have some rest. Like chopsticks, even they have some place to rest :). Some snapshots from 100Yen shop. All these ceramics and wooden chopsticks rests are made in China.

A Gift from Janine

I kept postponing mentioning this as I didn't know what to say :).
Okey, about a week ago, I received:

Something I never expected for my "lazy" blog, which is updated occasionally only when I feel like to :). For this I thank Janine and all of you who have spent sometime enjoying my random photos. 
I want to keep my Japan memories here, anything I witness. And until the time when I have to leave this nice town, I'm glad to share them with you.

Other findings at "GrandPa's"

I forget how much did this wooden doll cost. 50 Yen? I bet it's less than a hundred Yen.
Found this doll at Ojisan's recycle store (Ojisan=Grandfather), he together with her daughter run a second-hand shop where most of their goods come from people who want to throw out their old stuff :). Should you move to another town/country, Ojisan will be glad to collect your old things.
1 Yen coin. For some people, its value is too small to buy something, they usually put 1 Yen change in the jar provided by stores which will be sent as charity. These coins above are mine, I put them in a chopsticks rest.
