bye-bye kitty

I hate it when I bang up my own dishes...I was recently washing my Hello Kitty plate and hit it against the faucet. Most dishes I have are tough, but I guess this one was thinner. I am stubborn and won't throw this out until it really cracks...

Let's end this post on a happy note...here are the chocolates/cakes that Satoshi received from his co-workers for Valentine's.



one was even called "mahalo" which means thank you in Hawaiian.

So what is Satoshi giving back to his co-workers on White Day? Find out on March 14, I'm baking...cross your fingers it works out...

It's always sad to chip a favourite dish. Recently the shelf of our crockery cupboard fell and I lost heaps of favourite dishes as they smashed to the floor.

K and S said...

Oh no Barbara, that is so sad! I hope you didn't lose too many of your favorites.

Take care.

I hate losing a favorite dish, too! A lot of my dishes have little nicks around the edges and, as long as they're safe to us, I continue using them because I like them so much.

Satoshi certainly got some nice gifts! Do co-workers give each other presents on Valentine's Day in Japan? And what is White Day? I have a hard time keeping track of gift-giving so I'm afraid I wouldn't do well there....

Jenster,
Valentine's Day in Japan is when the girls give the guys something. Then on March 14,White Day, is when the guys give the girls something.

Take care.

I bought this plate in Hawaii Shar, so I don't think I could find an exact replacement here, but I may have a look the next time I am near one.

Take care.

Sorry about your plate. The chip doesn't look too bad.

Your chocolate looks delicious!

I've never heard of White Day? I suppose you'll tell us more about it. Can't wait to see what you make for that day.

Thanks Paz, the chocolates are actually Satoshi's, he got them from his co-workers for Valentine's. In Japan, the girls give the guys something for Valentine's then on March 14, the guys give something to the girls for White Day.

Take care.

Sorry to hear about Hello Kitty. I guess you could say that it was a Boo-boo kitty moment? I hate it when my bone china mugs get chipped!

K and S said...

I have the dish tucked away so that I won't use it, hoping that I won't bang it again and have to really throw it out, Rowena :p

Take care.

Poor Kitty chan! I know that hurts both of you - you and Kitty. Can't wait to see the baking for White Day. Hubby's company didn't do VDay this year so I don't have to worry about White Day. Woo-hoo!

K and S said...

You are so lucky Abigail :) And thank you, Kitty and I have band-aids on :p

Take care.
