Mochi Snow Rabbit

When I had a stall in a Christmas Market in December, it was the day that it snowed all day in London. It is very rare to see snow and it is even rarer that snow stayed on the ground over night here.

Japan, where I came from, is a geographically long country lying from North to South with a high mountain range in the midlle almost like a back bone. That was why we have completely different weather depends on where it is. During winter time some places get lots of snow fall and people in such places have some special customs to spend their time. Apart from the obvious choice of Snowman, children in a snowy country make a cute thing with snow. It is a Snow Rabbit that is simply a snow ball made into a oval shape with two leaves as ears and two red berries as eyes to make a face.

So I made my Snow Rabbit but it is not the traditional one with real snow. It was with ‘Mochi’ as my new Japanese sweet.

Can You See Who is Hiding?

Something is hiding in the darkness.

It is someone who likes going into a small box, who gets afraid of a sudden appearance of a cucumber and who people started to think could be liquid… However, more importantly it is one of the main characters for the coming Halloween.

Can you guess who it is? 🐈

Amazing Lines in Nature

Yamori Face

Magical Eye of ‘Yamori’ the Gekko’

Day 8 on ‘Photo 101’ – ‘Natural World & Leading Lines’

I am a Food Blogger but I love animals too. Nature fascinates me. Every part of creatures or plants is designed perfectly. This β€˜Yamori’ the Gekko, I found in a room at my parents’ house, can climb up any surface because of the lines on the back of its feet. They work as suckers. The pattern on its body is also amazing.

Yamori Foot

These lines are in 3D! Just Amazing.

YamoriI love seeing animals and plants up close. It’s almost ‘David Attenborough’. I released the Gekko back into the wild afterwards of course.
