Whoa~ I'm just back from Brussels and already preparing for another trip. This time nothing work related, but to visit the lovelies back home in Germany
Did you know that Brussels is not only famous for its architecture (believe me, after some years in Tokyo's concrete jungle, you are going to miss the beauty of European cities)

and chocolates (sorry, no pic this time, I ate them all before I could dig out my camera)but also for antique toys?

Brussels toy store display. nyan nyan  
Yay~ Christmas holidays- I'm so much looking forward to it. 
Don't get me wrong, Tokyo is very nice, glittery and "christmassily" decorated, but it just lacks the warm, heartfelt spirit and traditional treats I always get homesick during this season despite being really ok on other times. 
The christmas cakes here are very cute, anyways. Just like those of one of my favorite buffet places:

Oh, I've noticed, that I confused some of you with my "Diary climpses" entry. This series is not "set" in present days, but gives a little glimpse of my first year in Tokyo. I wrote about it earlier, but didn't explain in that particular post. Sorry dears. 
So, I'm not jobbing at a bar like I did during my student days at Tokyo Mode Gakuen. I'm a make up artist, working in the high fashion field.   

That'll be all for today. バイバイ~~~

Oh my~! Already two weeks since my last post. I hope you've been well dears
- As for my part, I've been incredibly busy.
It was basically like this: ... ... ... ... 
So no time for much online activity. I still managed to read and comment on some of your lovely bloggies, though.
At the moment I'm preparing for another work related trip to Europe. Fortunately, Teddy will come along again. (Haven't done the packing yet, leaving tomorrow...) This will be a little foretaste of Christmas holidays. 

I didn't take so many pics lately, but anyways, here are some everyday glimpses:

We prepared some German dishes when visiting Teddy's family. I made everything bite sized (except the meat, which was already a mini version of salted pork leg.-this is a Bavarian dish actually... my hometown in Germany is more northerly located by the way). Teddy's little niece loved everything despite being a picky eater *yay*

We got rewarded with this homemade raisin bread by her mom. It was quite impressive.

Another purchase of itty bitty stickers to decorate Christmas cards and my nails. I'm quite addicted- why must Japan be such a cutesy paradise *sigh*  

Now, I've to return to my packing...

Bye Bye and thanks for reading as always
