Wordless Wednesday: Chinese Manyue (满月) Pastries @ SakuraHaruka.blogspot.com

VIsit Sakura Haruka & be a friend on GFC :)

Big parties (满月酒) are usually held, and gifts {such as the one shown above} are given away to family members and friends. Contents vary,… Continue

Thankful Thursday @ SakuraHaruka.blogspot.com

Visit Sakura Haruka & be a friend on GFC!



I am thankful that we have a home. It may be just a small apartment, but it is a home filled with love and family warmth. Recently, we hosted a guest for 2 weeks and it is indeed a blessing to be able to provide a comfortable abode for our guest to rest in. To be able to open our doors and share what we have, that's a nice feeling indeed…

I actually set up my own Youtube channel {aisakuraharuka} so that I can have a fixed place to store the little pumpkin's wonderful videos, and also to leave special video messages to my little girl. In the unforeseen circumstance that I suddenly die *touch wood* at least the pumpkin…

Walk along Singapore River @ SakuraHaruka.blogspot.com

One of the boy's friends invited us to his birthday party at Robertson Quay last Friday evening, so that's where we went for the night.



Along with Boat Quay and Clarke Quay, Robertson Quay is part of the vibrant nightlife along the Singapore River. We were pretty early so we took a nice stroll along the river.…

Buta Kimchi (Pork Kimchi Stirfry) @ SakuraHaruka.Blogspot.Com

Today was a hot day, so I didn't have much appetite. All I wanted was something savoury and spicy, so I cooked Buta Kimchi (豚キムチ, pork kimchi stir-fry) for lunch. Kimchi is obviously from Korea, but the Japanese have a pretty darn good version of it. Well, in my opinion at least. I haven't tried an authentic Korean Buta Kimchi yet haha. Sorry, I don't know the original Korean name of this dish too.



Dad was in Korea recently for work and brought back huge packets of Kimchi… Continue
