Meet my pet neko, Yuki. He doesn’t seem too happy to let me take snappies of him, hence that grouchy face. What he wants is a belly rub. He love those.
Track Title: Thank You
OST: Samurai Champloo Music Records: Playlist
Ah, It’s nice to listen to this again. From an album full of funky beats, the opening track is the one that brings out a rush of memories. Has it really been that long since Samurai Champloo came out? Amazing how the music still stays as fresh as the day they were released.
Track title: Primavera
Composer: Iwasaki Taku
Ost: Gatchaman Crowds ‘INSIGHT’
This piece hooks me in at first listen. Sometimes, Taku Iwasaki comes up with a track that just do that to me. I supposed some listeners might find parts of the music a bit repetitive but I didn’t think that at all. There was that something that made it not sound that way. Really. What was I trying to say… But yeah, strangely soothing.
Every now and then, I do like to take pictures of food like this one here…coffee and cakes. They go well together especially on a rainy autumnal afternoon. This little cafe I was at is called Motomachi Coffee. It’s a nice, warm and cozy place that we discovered while walking along the Motomachi street in Hakodate. It was drizzling and we hopped in for a little break, dry comfort and for some food and kohi, of course.

菫～陽と共に – Sumire~You to Tomoni
RED GARDEN OST Track 28
It has been a while since I last heard this song by Kokia. Nonetheless, Sumire~You to Tomoni still impact me the same way as when I first listened to it. It is also my favourite insert song from the “Red Garden” Original Soundtrack.
I often imagine the kind of music that goes with the change of seasons. While browsing my favourite channels, I found this particular collection of original piano compositions. I thought, ah this is it. The perfect musical ode to autumn. That and a lovely poem by John Keats to compliment it. Oh, the wonderful memories it wrought too of my walks on the slopes of the ever lovely port city of Hakodate, last autumn.
How about some gelato, ne?
Gelato of many flavours can be found in this little shop, tucked away in a narrow cobbled stone street, nearby Piazza del Duomo in Florence (or Firenze as the locals called it). Well, one can find a Gelataria or gelato vendors nearly everywhere. You’d be hard pressed not to find one when you are in Italy. I do so missed the fruity popsicle that is made from real fruits and there’s even veggie popsicle. I like them more than gelato.

Grains of Rice
They leave rice fields to travel far and wide:
who doesn’t count on them for sustenance?
Doffing their golden coats, they bask in sun;
displayed in every place, they shine like jade.
Time after time, their forebears saved the realm-
for centuries their breed has fed our folk.
By fire and water they’ll forsake their lives:
is anyone aware what they do?
(from An anthology of Vietnamese Poems)
This is a rice plant. READ MORE
