2019 Project 365, Day 121: Happy Reiwa!

Photo #121: May 1

Received this message a few minutes after posting my orange tree jump shot earlier. What a coincidence! So apparently, the new Japanese era, “Reiwa,” means “beautiful harmony.” It comes from a poem written by Otomo no Tabito who lived in Dazaifu! I am not Japanese, but my students and travels to Japan teach me a lot, and part of me feels a bit older yet wiser because of this new era. In addition, I feel even more motivated to visit Japan as many times as possible so I can create more videos to help me connect easily with my students!

2019 Project 365, Day 99: Nissin Seafood Cup Noodles

If only cup noodles were less bulky, I’d buy more of Nissin’s seafood-flavored one! It’s great that they come in a mini version, but it’s not enough for voracious people like me lol.



2019 Project 365, Day 95: Blendy Café Latory Strawberry

On my next trip to Japan, I’ll make sure to get more boxes of this frothy and yummy strawberry milk tea! Even my sister and boyfriend enjoyed drinking it, and that’s a big thing because they can be picky, lol.



2019 Project 365, Day 88: KitKat Japan

I’m not a big fan of KitKat, but it’s super fun to shop in Japan because they have a lot of flavors to choose from. Didn’t notice how many I bought until I got home — 12 kinds!!! So there’s Tokyo Banana, ume sake, sakura sake, banana, hojicha (roasted tea), orange, raspberry, peach, Hokkaido melon & mascarpone cheese, nuts & cranberry (regular chocolate), nuts & cranberry (Ruby chocolate), and cranberry & almond!



2019 Project 365, Day 59: Mcdonald’s Flavors of Japan

Photo #59: February 28

Had to try Mcdo’s #FlavorsOfJapan because, well, hello, Japan.  For the ebi burger, I like the light, semi-sweet sauce and the shrimp patty’s tempura coating. However, the shrimp itself is not as juicy nor as flavorful as other shrimp burgers I’ve tried, but it’s still a decent try. I prefer the juicy beef patty of the teriyaki burger and its mayo. I wasn’t too happy with the teriyaki sauce, though. I felt it was either too sweet or too salty and also too much. The Nori fries were okay, but I prefer Tokyo Tokyo’s nori-wasabi fries as they have a good balance of flavors. Anyway, just give your fries a good shake to evenly coat them with the Nori powder. Lastly, the strawberry sakura McFloat tasted like medicine at first, but after a few sips, it became tolerable. Generally, I am not a fan of floats because they are too sweet – I just wanted to try this one.

So would I order these again? The float, definitely not. Also, I’d rather have plain salted Mcdo fries or honey-butter shake-shake fries (or barbecue). As for the burgers, hmmmm…. I’d probably want to get the teriyaki one again, but I’d request for less sauce.

I wonder what Mcdonald’s in Japan offers this season… hoping to find out soon! 



2019 Project 365, Day 54: New Books!

What I got from #TheBigBadWolfBookSale  Yeah, they’re nothing compared to the heaps of books many of you bought, but I’m satisfied (repeat until convinced lol). I didn’t include the 3rd book because I will give it to someone.#Imatbbwmanila19 #bigbadwolfph #bigbadwolfmanila#ThisIsFromBBWManila19
