Eastern Holidays at home.

Past eastern we visited Japan for the first time and we discovered our favourite city Tokyo- this eastern in exchange we have had no vacations and we have been at home.

It had been really hard because we planned to go sailing two days but strong winds and heavy rain from the North could made it a very unpleasant experience.

Anyways we will go to Hong Kong in less than a month. Yes!!! We will fly directly this time from BCN to HKG (via CDG that tells u no one is perfect) and I will be able to take Miffo and some of my sisters to my hometown. That’s great.

I said that Tokyo is my favourite city, but home is home so I dying to come back to my Hotel. To celebrate it Miffo cooked “Soba” for us and her delicious Miso Soup.

Note from Father bunny: Miffa doesn’t admit it but she prefers Tokyo right now. ;)

Miffo’s cooking lessons.

Miffo masters fish cut, her master will be proud

As many of you know Miffo spent almost nine months in Tokyo at Cafemiffy’s. There she discovered about Japanese culture and she cultivated her great hobby: cooking.

Now Miffa’s restaurant has three Chief Cookers - Me, Miffo and Laia – who master Cantonese, Japanese and Mediterranean cuisines respectively.

Past February during four consecutive weekends we showed our abilities with help from some guest cookers from China and Catalonia. Finally we have convinced Father Bunny (who helps us in the kitchen every time) , and we will start a three posts series with pictures and recipes we cooked.

We will include a video edited by ourselves using professional editing software (it was bundled with the video camera we bought in Tokyo past Eastern) and finally our lazy dad had time to read and install it.

Saturday morning at Miffa's

Today father bunny and me went for some spare parts for our desktop computer. It’s an old model and we needed to fix the memory and the Hard Disk.

I don’t like to mess with electronic stuff so while he was buying the HD me and mother bunny went to the market and we bought these delicacies…

A nice bunch of fresh and sweet giant carrots for my sisters. Well, Drako is so big and she was so hungry that she almost finished them all.

You cannot really imagine how big she is until you stay by her side.

Compare! She is almost three times taller than me.!!

Cherry trees, cherry blossom

Cherry trees or Sakura (Japanese) are ornamental trees that originated in Himalaya and present in India and East Asia.

Despite flower viewing is an old ancient tradition in China I had no idea about it and especially about cherry blossoming.

It begins in Okinawa in January and reaches Kyoto and Tokyo at the end of March or the beginning of April. In my first trip to Japan on late April I almost missed it because cherry flowers last only for a few days before falling.

Cherry trees are not so popular in Spain but while my Father was working Miffo and me were enjoying the nice Cherry trees we have in front of our Hotel.

Climate changes made it blossom at the end of February. We were close to the airport in a placed called Mirasierra, close to the mountains that surround Madrid in its North.

We will send more pictures to Chairoko and Kiiroko.
