on justice -Benedict/James Orbinski

''Justice only fails when we fail to imagine that it is possible. But like so many things, it depends not only on imaginings but on what we do.'' - James Orbinski

Having gone to public schools in Canada, I've never had the chance to wear uniforms...

And so I stole my students' uniform....

Though the sleeves were too short....


Happy Graduation to my 9th Graders....!

上禮拜跟小鳥去喝咖啡的時候,店長幫我們特別製作的LATTE ART.


Yesterday, I went to ABC COOKING STUDIO and made my very own BELATED VALENTINE'S CAKE!
My first BEAUTIFUL cake.


我一個人....當然不能吃掉一整塊嘍。(*注意:是不能吃,不是吃不下 (`-`)b ..... )

St-Val Celebration.... Extended Version

What better things to celebrate St-Val's with other than.....



Mmm... OMURAISU-me.

There's a place called OMUYA おむや in Tenjin, a small, charming restaurant that's famous for - um - OMURAISU, and a funny mannequin that resembles something between Kris Kringle and the KFC man.
But! hands down, BEST OMURAISU I've had in Japan so far.

And, pictures from last week, at my GENKI Jr. High.
I finally redeemed my reputation with a game of Basketball. I can't kick and run at the same time, but apparently I can dribble.
Oh yes!!
Tomorrow, though, I got myself into another Soccer disaster at my other Jr High. I'll hope for the best.

Also, an extended St-Val's party organized by my kawaii students, who decided to show me the way it's done - celebrate with colorful Mochis!
Don't let the colors mislead you, as much as they look like play dough, the scariest part is the sauce they introduced me to.

But, all in all, it was おいしいいいいい。

Happy Belated St-Valentine's Day!
