Delicious Pompompurin Cookies!

Hi everyone!

Pomompurin is one of my favorite Sanrio characters. What can I say, I can't get enough of him! I mean, he's a Golden Retriever made of pudding! (Not to mention the chocolate beret.) So, this week I decided to get creative and make some of these!

I bought the cookie cutter, cookie mix and chocolate pen from a Sanrio store in Japan. I have to admit, drawing on his face was a real challenge! Even then, I thought that overall the cookies were delicious. They'd turned out much better than I had expected!

Of course, nothing goes better with Pompompurin cookies than Rilakuma tea. I got the tea bag in my monthly subscription box, Yume Twins, and I absolutely love it! Shout out to Yume Twins for sending me only the cutest Japanese products every month!

That's all for today. Make sure to check in for new posts every week! -Alexis

Japanese Miniature Cuisine

Hi again! 

Recently I assembled my Re-Ment miniature foods and they are so adorable! It took me a while since all of the little bits and pieces were clumped together in one box, but, I managed to assemble all of the sets that I had so far.

Creamy corn chowder and bread pudding... Makes my mouth watery... It's amazing how much detail can be added to something so small.

Freshly baked bagels and fruity sorbet... The perfect breakfast, lunch and dinner for people like me. It's the little things in life that bring one so much joy.

Japanese hamburg and tomato pot soup... I'm a huge fan of Japanese hamburg. One of my favorite to assemble.

Nothing beats having pumpkin soup with a squirrel in the forest. They make one of the best dining companions. 

Dessert to end your meal. Licking my lips at the chocolate mousse pudding... ~ Open from 9:00 ~ 20:00 ~

2014 Holiday in Japan!


During the 2014 Christmas holidays I went to Japan to have fun-in-the-snow. And oh what fun-in-the-snow I had-what a perfect way to end the year! I love, love, love winter, almost makes me wanna lie on the floor and make a snow angel (which would be weird during the summer).

                    1. First, we went to Haneda for a few days, but it wasn't really snowing there (although it's still really, really cold). We arrived there at night, so we couldn't really see how the village looked like. In the morning, we could see Tokyo's most famous mountain: Mt. Fuji! There was a perfect view from our main window so we took a couple of good-shots. We went to some high mountain with many things to do there. They sell lots of Mt. Fuji stuff, so we bought lots of them to keep-and-eat. We also got a key chain of Mt. Fuji! (It was a really cute one.) Aiden and I also ate: Black Eggs! If you eat one, you add-on seven years of life. If you eat two, you add-on fourteen years of life. If you eat three, you get bad luck. (NO GOING HIGHER THAN THAT!!!-EXTRA BAD LUCK) They were super yummy!!!

                    2. Next, snoooooow!!! We went to Nagano, Nozawa Onzen Village to...SKI!!! Man, I love to ski. It's like my only hearts desire. Mommy told me that in Nozawa there are 13 onsens and they are all free! We stayed in the Nozawa Grand Hotel, so everyday we'd walk to the Nozawa Ski Resort, which is like, bigger than Nozawa itself! Nozawa is really small (it's just a village anyway). Mommy, Aiden and I will always go tubing down the slope before our ski lessons. I'll post the 'good-shots' next time. Mommy and I went to soak in the onsen in our hotel. Since it was snowing it was freezing cold when we had to transfer from the room into the onsen. So fun!

                    3. Lastly, we went back to Tokyo. In Tokyo we went to stay in a hotel called Dai-Ichi Hotel. We went to Palette Town in Odaiba, where they have a ferris wheel, a ginormous arcade and a Toyota cars, trucks, vans...etc. showcase exhibition. Then at night, Mommy and I went down shopping paradise streets Shibuya and Omote-Sando. Now, that was fun. Mommy and I also went to this shop called Alice on Wednesday. They sell everything Alice in wonderland. Even the entrance is a small, squeezy door. There are also accessories hidden in the shop and the only way to purchase them is to find them! Although we didn't find any, it was still polo-fun! Last but definetly not least, Disney Sea!!! I really loved King Triton's Castle. Lot's of underwater rides! I also sat on this roller coaster called The Journey to the Center of the Earth, it was really fun! I sat alone with Mommy because Daddy and Aiden didn't want to go. The wait was totally worth it! That's all for 2014's Christmas Holiday in Japan! I hop you enjoyed it as well just by reading!

Love, Alexis

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Hey everyone!

A Merry Christmas to all of you! I can't wait to open all my Christmas presents ever since I don't like to open my presents too early. Everyday I'm like "Should I open it...maybe not...or maybe I should because it looks so appealing..." And I just get so confused! Anyway, I really want to make this Christmas special and spend quality time with friends and family.

What kind of Christmas activities do you guys like? I love going to Christmas parties and watching Christmas movies with my family. Sometimes I just like to chill by the fire with a good book. (Just kidding, I don't actually have a fire place!)

That's it for today. Tune in! Peace!

Deck the Halls, Alexis

Dessert at Galare Cafe

Hi again!

Yesterday, my mom brought my brother and I to eat dessert after lunch. I said I wanted to eat ice cream, so she brought us to Galare Cafe. When it was time for us to choose the ice cream flavours, I chose Cookie Dough while mt brother chose Cookies and Cream and Dark Chocolate. (He chose two flavors for two scoops.) When the ice creams arrived, I tried a little ball of cookie dough and I loved it! I finished the entire scoop in no time, still hungry for a second. Here is a pic of me eating the Cookie Dough ice cream. It was so delicious I had forgotten to take a pic of it when it hadn't been eaten yet!

My Rating: 3.8/5

High Tea at Mariott Cafe

Hi again!

This afternoon, my brother, my mom, my grandma and I had high tea at Marriott Cafe in Marriott Hotel. I enjoy eating there because the desserts are so yummy!

First, I picked out one Cheese Ball stick. Each stick has two balls. As I took one huge bite of the Cheese Ball, all the cheese squirted out! It was so fun! Next I tried some yellow rice (bryani) and chicken curry. If you put them together it becomes Nasi Bryani. It was so delicious but it was a bit too spicy. After that, I tried a rectangle shaped pizza, that was one of my favorites! Then it was time for the desserts. I grabbed a plate and took three yummy-looking cookies. Then I took some cake. Last but definitely not least, I chose the sticky date pudding. It was the best part! Here is a photo of the Sticky Date Pudding:

This is a pic of me about to lick Aiden! He hates it when people lick him!

My Rating: 4.1/5
