If I was a good blogger there would be some relevant photos to accompany this post but there aren't (well not many). Although I haven't been blogging I have been enjoying myself. I do have some photographic evidence.
Awesome photo care of Martine Cotton (aka Frangipani) - hope you don't mind that I borrowed it!!!
I think we were singing the Greatest Love of All by Whitney H. You can see all of Martine's great photos from Andrew's Sayonara party on FLICKR. Lucky that some of my friends take photos even though I don't. Sorry.
It was a great night but we are all really sad to see Andrew go. We'll miss you.
On Sunday Darin and I had the pleasure of showing Myra, T and Buddy around Omotesando and Harajuku. We had brunch at Le Bretagne and luckily we got there at 11:30 because the place was packed by 12. If you go on a Sunday you might want to make a reservation. It was Easter Sunday and since Easter is not celebrated in Japan, we don't really celebrate it either, BUT we were super lucky because Myra gifted us with our own little easter egg packages and we got to watch Buddy do his easter egg hunt in Yoyogi park. So cute! Thanks guys we had a great time. Again I took no photos. Sorry.
We had a hanami party a week earlier too and our photos didn't turn out too great. I did manage to get up at 6am to snag the perfect spot at the park. Luckily we only live a two minute walk from the park so I went in my pajamas, took a pillow and a blanket and slept there. The weather was awesome so it was *kinda* like impromptu camping.
here's our spot
I excelled and also made baba ghanoush, guacamole and cupcakes!!!
the sakura were pretty and we had a nice view all around us. best of all it was 24 degrees that day. bring on the 20s I say.
BTW, I really loved all of the comments I got on my last post. It totally felt like I was having a virtual slumber party - remember those (well the non-virtual type)??!! Wouldn't it be awesome if we could all gather in the same place at the same time and have a massive slumber party.
