Valentine's Kit Kat


Valentine's Kit Kat, originally uploaded by M and C.

Passionfruit Kit Kat, just for Valentine's Day. Created by the famous Japanese pastry chef Takagi (his photo is on the back of the package). Quite yummy. There are also Green Tea Kit Kats here, which are even better.

Nakayamadera (Nakayama Temple)


Nakayamadera (Nakayama Temple), originally uploaded by M and C.

These photos were taken just after New Year's. This is the nearest temple to our house. It is the temple for fertility and childbirth, and many who are hoping to become parents come there. Pregnant women come to pray for safe delivery and new parents bring their new babies there for pray for their health and good future.
