Cumbercookie in the making

Since coming back from London, I have:

1) read/watched/re-lived Harry Potter;
2) drank plenty of Pimms;
3) FINALLY watched Sherlock (Yes I know I’m slow but in defence I’ve never really watched TV or movies);


4) hence decided to put myself through the wonderful process of becoming a well and thoroughly baked Cumbercookie. (Well, a Cumber Collective member, if you want to be all official, but I like being a -cookie in the -batch.)

So, eh, yeah. Expect radio silence.

Will still answer questions, so feel free to ask, but all spare moments shall be spent on the ベネディクト in the near future.

PS. Any fans want to recommend which of his works I should look into next?

Akan datang (or coming soon)

I haven’t had the mood to blog for a while now. Part of it is just laziness…sifting through hundreds of photos to select a few choice ones for an interesting post isn’t something that can be done on a whim, you know. The other part of it…well, let’s just say things haven’t been going great here for a while now. Don’t worry, it’s not terminal, but blogging isn’t really on my priority list for the moment. In any case, now that the new batch of JETs are getting ready to move in, there will be a new surge of Japan! blogs to read.

Anyhow, let’s get on with some catching up. Since my last travel post on Seoul, I’ve been to:

1) Shirakawa-go 白川郷, Gifu (9-10 Feb)
2) Niseko & Sapporo, Hokkaido (20-24 Mar)
3) Round trip of Kyushu (27 Apr – 4 May)

There was also the Himeji hanami trip, the animal shelter volunteer trip to Osaka and the kimono shopping trip to Kyoto.

Not to mention 給食 diaries Mar and Apr.

…ok. Any wonder why I stopped blogging now?

I’ll start with Shirakawa-go on a new post, so this is just an akan datang post to let you know that I’m still alive. Wish me luck with my photo uploading! (So gonna need it >_<)
