If you can make them square-shaped…

… you can make them heart-shaped.


These heart-shaped water melons are made by Hiroichi Kimura, a farmer from Kumamoto Prefecture.

Otabe was oishii!

I got this sweet treat from a sweet colleague of mine! It had sakura flavour!

And it tasted delicious!

This sweet is called “Tsubuan iri-nama yattsubashi” (粒あん入り生八つ橋). I sure must look for it next time I’m in Japan. It’s nickname is “otabe” (おたべ).

Thank you Zhang Jingyu!
