Clover Cafe!

JAPAN | Thursday, 23 Jul 2009 | Views [2106] | Comments [2]

Megumi and I tried out Clover Cafe near our apartment for lunch.  We had their "healthy lunch" set.  I love the attention to detail the Japanese as a culture as a whole gives to food presentation!  Bottom left: sticky "brown rice"... Read more >


Summer cupcakes!

JAPAN | Thursday, 23 Jul 2009 | Views [3728]

Yesterday was a busy and exciting day!  We had a solar eclipse at 11am here to start things off.  It's the longest total solar eclipse we'll have in the 21st century.  On Okinawa we had 80% of a total solar eclipse, so for a little over 6 minutes we ... Read more >

Transformers and Yogurtland!

JAPAN | Monday, 20 Jul 2009 | Views [2647]

Saturday, Brandon took me out for lunch at the Ramen shop in American Village.  I had some very good Okinawan fried rice and Brandon had beef ramen.  The ramen here is a far cry from the stove-top ramen Americans are used to...come to think of it, we ... Read more >


Sugarcane!

USA | Sunday, 19 Jul 2009 | Views [606]

I thought I'd share a couple photos of the local sugarcane growing.  I've watched it grow from seed to around 7ft tall!  My guess is within the next couple weeks they will have the machinery in to harvest the sugarcane.  The other photo I uploaded ... Read more >

Hungry?

JAPAN | Tuesday, 14 Jul 2009 | Views [526]

We have no idea what kind of crustacean this was, but what a surpise to find it outside our garage.  From what we can tell, it was decapitated by 3rd Floor's garage door and somehow the rest of it ended up on the road in front of our garage.  We both ... Read more >


Sunset!

We just don't get tired of watching (and photographing) the sun setting over the Sea.  We posted a few other pics in the gallery. ---Arielle

Big bugs, tiny birds?

JAPAN | Saturday, 11 Jul 2009 | Views [854] | Comments [2]

Okay, we've posted about the very, very large bats on Base and the very large bugs on our screen.  Are you starting to see a pattern?  I thought I was too until our walk to see the sunset this evening.  On our way, we found...well, we think it was a ... Read more >

Cicadas are a hummin'...

JAPAN | Saturday, 11 Jul 2009 | Views [1129]

We're loving living on a sub-tropical island; however, with the beautiful weather comes big bugs!  We didn't mind the snails in the courtyard, the gecko in the elevator, the hermit crab in the foyer, but the huge cicada on the screen - that's where I ... Read more >

Check out that sunset!

Brandon and I went down to the Sea Wall to watch the sunset.  What a gorgeous display of water, clouds, and color!  Absolutely gorgeous!  Though photos can't do justice, I wanted to share these with you.  You're always welcome to come visit us and experience ... Read more >


Goodbye, Gimli, goodbye!

JAPAN | Monday, 6 Jul 2009 | Views [552]

Gimli's new family met us last night and took Gimli back to their loving home.  Re-homing Gimli has been an incredibly challenging decision for Brandon and me to make, but for the sake of both humans and dog, we felt it was in everyone's best interest ... Read more >


Happy 4th of July!

We had a wonderful 4th of July!  We were invited to a BBQ upstairs and enjoyed lots of wonderful food, made some new friends, and watched fireworks from the rooftop.  All-in-all, a very fun Fourth!  Hope you all have fun celebrating, too! ---Arielle ... Read more >


Would you like a cupcake, "Cupcake?"

JAPAN | Saturday, 4 Jul 2009 | Views [647] | Comments [2]

I decided I was too hungry for white cake to just ignore it, so I decided to try to make my first cupcakes.   The end result did, indeed, taste good and satisfy my craving, but the decorating wasn’t quite what I had planned.   The first bag split;... Read more >


Here's the drill...

JAPAN | Saturday, 4 Jul 2009 | Views [740]

Brandon was so excited to finally get his drill in the mail (after over a month of waiting) so he could finally get the surround sound speakers up on the wall!   Gimli even tried to help him a few times before deciding to “supervise” from the floor.... Read more >
