Wednesday in Japan. . . everyday stuff

You just never know what is going on in Japan.
.
 ummmm are they getting a ticket for a turn on red ?
.
 Purin is a custard pudding in Japan. There is a cafe in Nagoya that handmakes these little
chick shaped custards. Yes Please !

Piyorin is an onomatopoeia (big word alert that I had to look up) for the sounds little baby chicks make running after their Mum
piyo-piyo.
Much like the way thehamish runs after me. When he was a puppy he would run in and out of my legs when I walked. Causing me to to crash into walls and a glass door twice.

Son still calls thehamish "piyo-piyo" as he still to this day runs after me.
Thank goodness he is not so close anymore.
.
 Here is one is Matcha (green tea).

......


And just because I can here is your mid-week pretty.

piyo-piyo. . . parsnip
music. . . Mad World,  Tears for Fears

  1. Custard in Japan? I'm surprised. Last time my husband went, a long time ago, their desserts were a tiny round of cookie that wasn't sweet. He probably just didn't know where to look.

    1. Oh no.... In all the shops, 7-11 and Lawson they have great food and puddings. All the bakeries have cream and custard filled treats. Yes their cookies can be not so sweet but there are sweet one too. I like the not so sweet cookies

  2. Purin is one of my favorite desserts! When I go to Japan, I always always get some at convenience store! These Purin chicks are so cute! Too cute to eat :-) But I really would like to try the green tea one...looks so yummy!
    The first picture is very weird, LOL!

    1. They emailed me right away.
      It is in Kumanoto in Kyushu. It is the southern island. They have friends who live there and there is a semi active volcano there. Two really strong 6.5 quakes 10 km. So far it doesn't look as bad as the Kobe quake of 1995. Or near 2011.
      Thanks for asking all is well.
