Merit certificates at Assembly

29 October 2008...
It was also an Italian day at school, hence the green, white and red dress code.

This is my year 1 work, dad!

Wasabi and Mount Fuji

I swung past Tokyo on the way back from Seoul last week, and a few interesting things happened. I walked with baggge from Hotel New Otani to Imperial Hotel, and that took 1.5 hours. But since you don't want to see what I look like drenched in sweat, let's move on...

Here I am holding a wasabi root. They grow in only the purest of water, the top, and small roots are cut of, and eventually you end up with something like this. In a proper Sushi restaurant the raw Wasabi is used, and it is grated on sharkskin. It has never tasted so good.

Fun at the farm in October

Picture of seven legged spider worth more than overdue account

Saw on Bits and Pieces the following, and I ROFL'd.
Subsequently, the picture was sold on eBay for USD10000. Guess it should have been accepted as payment after all...
