pudding endorser

Over the weekend, I have practically become a Marlowe pudding endorser haha. Since our trip to Takamatsu last weekend got canceled due to the typhoon, we decided to have Marlowe pudding delivered to our family in the west and eat instead the vanilla flavored ones in Hello Kitty mugs which we’ve bought earlier since shelf-life is only 3 days.

I’ve tasted the chocolate, coffee and maccha Marlowe pudding flavor. But this vanilla flavored one is by far our favorite. Them black spots are vanilla beans.

The great thing with Marlowe pudding is that they come in classy especially-made Pyrex glasses with different designs. This year’s anniversary glass is by Sanrio with Kitty-chan.

Great collectibles aren’t they? while we were queuing however (and it was a looong queue at that), we saw people returning the mugs and receiving something in exchange. Nice.

They have kabocha / pumpkin pudding as well but we decided to gift it to a friend – kabocha pudding is my favorite pudding. End result, I’m really curious how it tasted. I guess nature gives back to you what you gave away. This evening, I finally chanced upon the kabocha pudding in the convenience store that I’ve been searching for for yearSSSS! I almost panic-buyed haha.

One thing though. I need to loose 2 kg within one week. But for three nights in a row, I’ve been eating pudding. Tsk. Tsk. Tsk.

giveaway packing ideas

There’s nothing quite like the excitement you get when you’re opening a gift. For me, it’s half of the gift already!

If you’re one who have good hands for doing handicrafts, it may be worth to consider wrapping your giveaways in a way that would really delight your guests, even with just the packaging per se.

Saw these in a rack in Family Mart. Okay okay I admit I got attracted at first because it has our wedding colors lol. 🙂 But the gift wrap ideas are really lovely, aren’t they? If I’d receive something akin to these as a wedding giveaway, it’d probably take days before I’d open it and that I’d probably make sure I had already taken pictures of ALL the angles before I’ve opened it up. 🙂

Pretty aren’t they? Especially the orange one.

oden!!!

It was unu~~~~sually cold today because of typhoon Ma On. Felt like early autumn or late spring. The weather was just perfect for – what else??!! – oden!!

I just love oden when it’s cold weather.

I’m not so fond of konnyaku (or konjac) – the black thingy in above photo. I find it weird, hard and yet slimy with undefinable taste. Hence, Hubby ate both konnyaku’s instead of us having a konnyaku each.

My favorite oden choices: tamago (egg), sausage with chikuwa ちくわ (sausage without chikuwa seems not available anymore) and tofu.

And of course, we didn’t waste the broth! I actually had a big smile on as I finished slurping the broth from the big bowl. Yum!
