The weather was not working with me that day, but it did not diminish this beauty. Kairakuen is one of the official top 3 gardens of Japan. What criteria do they use to derive this? I do not know 😛 It is an official title though, Kairakuen is one of the Three Great Gardens of Japan (日本三名園 Nihon Sanmeien). The other 2 are Korakuen of Okayama and Kenrokuen of Kanazawa.

一期一会 (ichigo ichie)

One opportunity, one time.

Japanese Kotowaza / proverb

Shurijo site is 1 of a 9 parts UNESCO site (Gusuku) in Okinawa. A rather unusual arrangement really, these 9 sites are scattered all over the prefecture and isn’t all next to each other. The other 8 are:

Tamaudun 玉陵 – Naha 那覇市

Sonohyan-utaki Ishimon 園比屋武御嶽石門 – Naha 那覇市

Shikinaen 識名園 – Naha 那覇市

Sefa-utaki 斎場御嶽 – Nanjo 南城市

Bocconcino, London

Environment: Lovely warm ambiance. Spacious and high ceiling. Toilet was spacious too; can improve by applying more diligence. Service: Great! Attentive and they even held the wine bottle properly (At last, someone who actually knew how to waiter properly) Food: They messed up my tuna steak – over cooked, way too much salt AND managed to make the fish texture hard (from dehydration?)  🙁 Fondant au chocolate…

It is another round of sunscreen (mostly) empties review! I use sunscreen everyday, even if I don’t leave home. I use up 50ml every 4 to 6 weeks and empty around 9 to 13 facial sunscreens a year. I bought everything with my own money, hence I do try to finish the product even if it is horrible. However, if it is just WAY intolerable, I do give up and just throw it away.
