New life

I think we are getting used to our new life now. Yes, we moved to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Because my only internet connection works well for emails only, I decided to blog again, just to shout out what I feel and think (Facebook, whatsapp, line, Google+ don't work well, sadly).

We have an amazing cook and a kind driver. The cook keeps feeding me a lot of yummy food, but surprisingly I can't eat a lot anymore here. Perhaps because my body cries for exercise haha. I like Ethiopian music, and I want to learn the dance. We think we will enjoy our new life here!

It's getting colder and colder. The leaves changed color, the day got shorter. But it's beautiful. I always love Autumn!

Mother's day

I am a blessed mom!!!!

I got this beautiful red carnations from Iki, because he said that I love red roses (!)

He also prepared the dinner tonight :)


And took a bath with me instead of his favorite bath-mate, papa! He scrubbed my back and wrote : "thanks, mom" on my back using his finger. He told me that he felt thankful to have me as his mommy, that I looked tired doing all the house chores, that my food is the yummiest in the whole world, that he loved me so much.

How can I not burst into tears...?

I am thankful to have such a sweet boy!

This is a beautiful mother's day. Happy mother's day to all mothers in the world. Hope yours are as beautiful as mine too! BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging. BlogBooster is a multi-service blog editor for iPhone, Android, WebOs and your desktop

Best sushi!!

From Evernote:

Best sushi!!

 Hiro took holiday today. Iki has to go to school, so it was only me and him, the two of us, YAY!

I Couldn't think of any other place to have our brunch date than Tsukiji Fish Market. Fish market for a date? Well yeah I love it!

We went into the same restaurant we visited on our anniversary two years ago. Because it was not as crowded as the other restaurants (hiro hates crowd!), and because the sushi there was my best sushi ever two years ago. And still is.

I love sushi and sashimi, and going to Tsukiji will always be a special treat for me. I really want to bring iki there someday!

From Evernote:


We went to the elementary school this morning to submit some documents and on the way back home a friend brought us to a small cafe for coffee.

パーラー江古田, is what its called. A small small cafe and pattiserie nearby ekoda station. It was so small that we were so lucky we could sit on the only table available! (others had to sit on the counter, enough for 3 persons only).

I ordered cappucino, and this is it!


There were some selection of home made bread too. I had this blue cheese and nuts bread to accompany my cappucino. It was so good that i bought more to bring home for tomorrow breakfast! 

I want to bring hiro here someday for a lazy yummy breakfast or brunch. Unfortunately it's not a place for kids.........
