my first sakura sighting

it's the beginning of winter and sakura blossom usually in spring.

today, however, as we went inside the The Imperial Palace grounds, we were fortunate enough to see 2 sakura trees in bloom.

i almost died :)

must. learn. nihonggo. soon.

i love love love japanese food (my url isn't stoicsushi for nothing).  imagine my excitement and anticipation when i learned that i was gonna be assigned here in Tokyo for a couple of months! 

sushi. fresh, succulent melts in your mouth sushi.
ramen. rich, hearty. the kind that makes all booboos go away.

it's been a week and i have to say, everything i've eaten were all oh-so-yummy!

however, ordering them is a task. a long, frustrating yet funny task.

so, i shall learn the language. at least the more important ones. read -the ones that can help me order the food in the menu! hahahaha!

oh tokyo, you are one cool city. 
i can't wait to be friends with you :)

happiest birthday for my bestest friend ever

this is it! of all the pivotal events in your life, this, by far is the one i will never ever forget. it took all my energy not to shriek when you told me the good news.

you are going to have your happily ever after.

more than the bling, it's the thought that you are soon to say i do that gives me the chills.
you have found the one.

as shrek is to fiona and prince charming is to cinderella, you have found the one.

“Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can't-live-without-each-other love.” 

good things indeed come to those who wait. i am happy.

i love you. happy birthday :)
