A Thousand Words Thursday

Cheaper Than Therapy

I love this photo of Momo. It was taken 3 years ago in a grocery store in Japan and I think she looks so cute with her hair pulled back and all the colors of the candy in the background.

Let me tell you, I love the store we were in when i took this photo (which is attached to a large open air shopping mall that is designed to look like an American shopping center). It's the same mall where you can rent a pet.

Anyways, as much as I love the mall, the grocery store is really fantastic... It is beautifully designed and there are a bunch of added perks like a little sushi shop, an ice cream counter, a candy store, a tea counter, a bakery and a gourmet snack shop (not to mention the most beautiful produce, meats fish and other yummy Japanese treats, (like this stuff).

I miss Japan...I'll have to tell you some more about our upcoming trip...and maybe share some more pics from our previous adventures there. So come back you hear!


  1. What a cutie she is! i looove your blog, and i seriously almost pissed my pants while reading the mom, whats a sex shop!! it was great!! hope you dont mind but i am following you and added you to my blogroll too!!

  2. I just read that post about the food in Japan, and I'm so ravenously hungry now for it!! My late hub was stationed in Japan in the 1950s, and he introduced me to so many of the delicacies. We found a small teahouse in KC that served marvelous food, and they loved it when he requested something special, off the menu, because many Americans won't eat them. Something as simple as asking for a raw egg with sukiyaki sent them into happy smiles and many bows! I really miss having a good Japanese food outlet here.

    My hub lived off base, and he remembered the soba noodle vendor walking the streets shouting, "Soooooooooooooba! Sooooooooooba!"

    Sigh. I'm SO hungry!
