Late Post: Shopping in Tokyo


My 5-part Tokyo travelogue is still getting the most number of visits and search hits in the blog (thank you!), and this made me realize that I left one more good stuff to share about that trip - the shopping and my shopping finds! First off, I didn't shop much.  I enjoyed the window shopping, though hehe!  In doing so, I was able to compare prices of the Uniqlo and Muji ... READ MORE

Blueberry Cheesecake Cookies


Now that I have added "baking" as one of my newly-acquired "skills", I have been wanting to make my own blueberry cheesecake.  People dear to me know how much I love this cake.  How nice it would be if I (with the help of AJ, of course) can bake and eat it, too!
