Oh, we are in October now. It is the month that Halloween is coming! Last year I made two types of Japanese sweets for this Halloween month. One of them was Jack-o’-Lantern and the other one was Mochi Ghost. Actually I started making a Ghost like sweet two years ago and then last year’s Ghost was my revenge creation because the first one was not that a great Ghost. I made a blog post and tweeted about it with photos and then actually it got a good reaction from people. I received many great comments regarding the sweet (Thak you!). The Ghost sweet was also served at Wasoukan Café (Notting Hill, London) and the manager told me that that sweet was the best seller amongst all the sweets they had sold last year. I started thinking that I should make this Ghost sweet as my yearly traditional sweet in this season so that I created another one for this year’s version.
Mochi Ghost 👻 2017
I made a little similar one in order to meet the people’s expectation but slightly different Mochi Ghost again. This time it is vertically standing 3D Ghost.
It happened again!! Just before Halloween a Mochi Ghost was found being murdered.
His snow white soft Mochi body was cut into two and the purple sweet organ and sticky vivid red blood are oozed out …
Now, we are investigating this tasty Incident to solve the mystery. 👻👻👻👻👻
Have a wonderful Weekend!
I visited Kensington Gardens in September and noticed there were so many Sweet Chestnuts on branches. They must be falling down to the ground by now and ready to eat.
While looking around in the park at the little details, I noticed something camouflaging so well in big trees.
I mentioned that Kensington Gardens is famous as the place where the fictious character Peter Pan lived but it is also famous for the place Princess Diana lived after her divorce with Prince Charles. When I visited Kensington Gardens, it was also a memorial period of 20 years since her death. Apart from looking for Peter Pan another main purpose of my visit to this park was seeing the memorial garden of Kensington Palace which was specially planted for this occasion.
Kensington Palace is located very west part of Kensington Gardens. Several bunches of flowers were placed at the front gate of the Palace. If it was on the actual day of her memorial I am sure there would have been more flowers.
I have recently read ‘Peter Pan and Wendy’. It is the story everybody knows that Peter Pan visits the bedroom of Wendy and her two brothers and then they fly to Neverland and fight with Hook the captain of Pirates. It is actually published by following the story of ‘Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens’ and also the Play script ‘Peter Pan (The Boy Who wouldn’t Grow Up)’. Of course I knew the story but when I saw the book in library I thought “Hum, I have never actually read it. How much do I know about the characters?” so I borrowed the book.
Now I have finished reading the story and can tell you I discovered several new factors about the story. The biggest surprise was Peter Pan’s age. Okay, he is a boy and also old, because he never grows up and lives forever, which means he is very old. But do you know how old he was when he left his parents’ house? He says in the story “Wendy, I ran away the day I was born”.(+o+)(=ﾟωﾟ)ﾉ😵! It means he is not even 1day old!! Even in the story of ‘Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens’ he was 7 DAYS OLD!! I don’t know why but the author J. M. Barrie changed when Peter decided to leeve his parents’ home but one thing I can tell you is that he is not even a toddler. He is a newborn baby. Realistically he cannot speak or even stand up?! OK, it is a fictious story so anything is possible.
Anyway, after he left his parents he started living in Kensington Gardens. When I had time in central London I suddenly wanted to see where Peter Pan spent time so I visited Kensington Gardens.
