I'm back!

Food keyrings in Osaka

I'm back!

How did three weeks in Japan fly past so quickly?

Japan was a blast. Highlights included the ice sculptures at the Sapporo Snow Festival, seeing the snow monkeys (Japanese macaques) in Nagano enjoying their outdoor onsen, and making a day trip to Kobe for a lunch of Kobe beef. Rest assured, there'll be plenty of Japan-related entries to come once I wade through the thousands of photos taken -- and yes, 95% of them are of food!

Thanks for all your comments on my posts that were published during this period. I will be responding to them all as soon as possible.

Don't forget today is the last day to enter the Grab Your Fork competition to win a spice hamper with African red drinking chocolate. Entries close today (Monday 01 March 2010) at 5.30pm. What are you waiting for? Enter now

    Hi Hannah - Plenty of fooding in Japan. I don't think we did much else. Hope you enjoy the first post about our Japan 2010 trip.

    Hi Simon Food Favourites - Definitely recommend a trip to Japan. It's such a great place for eats! And shopping!

    Hi Y - Thanks so much. I'm way behind in my blog reading and huh, even more behind in posts. lol

    Hi Betty - Oh yes, nothing worse than back-to-work blues! It's always the promise of the next holiday that keeps you going, right? :)

    Hi Extra - Exciting stuff! An sure you will have so much fun, and hopefully the exchange rate will pick up by then too.

    Hi Stephcookie - I wanted all the keyrings too! Have so many photos to wade through but have dutifully started posting! Hope you enjoy!

    Hi Ellie - Thanks so much. It's great to be back, and yes, lots of posts to come!

    Hi Jacq - Ooh another Japan-tripper. I don't think you can go wrong with food in Japan and it's such a traveller-friendly place to visit.

    Hi Kay - I would love to learn how to make food keychains. I can only imagine how much time they take to make!

    Hi A Cupcake or Two - The first post is now up. Hope you enjoy it and hah, Great Wall of Keyrings - love it!
