lantern festival

i went to the nagasaki lantern festival with my friend ayaka, which was actually a japanese-style celebration of chinese new year. so there were tons of red lanterns, chinese food and japanese people. and some typical chinese new year imagery.

like this dragon:

a chinese acrobat with a death wish

eating chirin chirin ice. we didn't know what that meant, but it tasted like vanilla. isn't ayaka pretty?


le namesake

after watching this i want to learn how to taiko. it sounds so different than i expected it to sound. it's like a traditional dance party!

making....japanese(??) food

eating japanese food

i've always liked the phoenix...this ones made of china (the dishes) and lights
