''La Raclette Fondue''

Yesterday's dinner was unlike anything I've ever eaten... in Japan. It was colorful, tasty and surprisingly FILLING. It was probably the fullest meal I've had so far - considering the price, too. 2000yen per person for a 9-course meal - 4 appetizers, Fondue and THREE main dishes. And it's more extravagant than it sounds, really. Imagine that!

Here it is....

Table of the most chatty/noisy girls in the restaurant.

Dipping bread crumbs into hot boiling and EXTREMELY creamy basil cheese...

Fresh sautee chili peppers with chicken - to be dipped with the best bread sticks I've ever had. Ever.

And the long-awaited.... 


I'm definitely going back there... who's coming with me?
(Jia... I'm bringing you there...)

And I didn't have to worry about burning off extra calories... I had a full schedule at an Elementary today.

My cute sixth graders - 2 years already and they haven't changed much. 
I'm glad. 
I'm going to be such a whiny mom, I know.
They had a special program planned - a QUIZ to see just how well I know their school, QUESTION TIME (... they had fun messing around with my age again. Apparently I'm old enough to be their mom... ''only a skinnier version, too'' - one boy kindly pointed out.) ... AND of course, PICTURE TIME!

My cellphone is my favourite camera.

The boys jumped in and flashed their 招牌 smile. These are the two class clowns/troublemakers/人気もの. Can you tell?

Say Cheese Everyone!!!
