Doyou No Ushi No Hi (どようのうしのひ)

Is a day in the middle of super hot summer when people all over Japan eat Unagi (eel). Japanese believe that eating the nutritious Unagi during the very hot summer time can bring back their stamina. If you want to read more about this eel day, this web has the answer (^_^)

I actually had no idea about Unagi day, but was wondering why they were so many unagi(s) displayed at the supermarket yesterday. Today when I had some shopping with a friend and passed the Unagi display, she told me about this Unagi day.

So I bought Unagi obento for our dinner tonight:



Hopefully I will have good stamina (and good mood too!!) to face the rest of summer here (^_^)v

PS: how many times did I mention "hot"??? :p
