When we first moved to Japan in 2001, I would update our friends and family with emails.
But not wanting to stuff their inboxes nor bore them, I started this blog in 2005 so that if they wanted to read what we were up to they could whenever they wanted to.
Who would have thought that people from all over the world would also check into what we were up to??
Fast forward to today...this blog's 5th birthday...I can't believe I've kept a journal for this long!
To celebrate, I thought it would be nice to give something away...a care package to 1 lucky reader.
Keeping with the "5" theme...this care package will be valued at 5000 yen (about US$50) not including postage.
Hopefully you will not be allergic to anything I put in the care package nor will the customs guys decide that they need to receive the package or contents instead of you, or that they will make you pay some ridiculous tax or fee for it.
If you win, please blog about your care package after you receive it, linking your post to this blog.
To enter, please write a comment in our comments section by September 30, 2010, 9:28 a.m. (Japan time), no anonymous or ad type comments please, also to be fair, please enter only once....Satoshi will be pulling the name of the winner, and we'll announce the winner on October 1, 2010.
I would like to thank you for reading our blog. I am happy to have met some of you personally and also cherish the virtual friendships.
Blogging has really expanded my interest in food and my waistline (LOL) and I've learned a lot about cooking and myself in the process.
Not sure how long I will be able to keep this blog going but am definitely looking forward to blogging for at least the next couple of years.
Kanpai! (Cheers!) UPDATE: comments now closed, thanks for participating! to see what was in the box, click here.
