Yesterday, we got together for my host-brother's wife's birthday.

Usually my host-mom, my host-brother's wife and I go out for lunch, but yesterday, my host-father joined us too.

It was nice as I hadn't seen him in many years.

Lunch was at host-father had enjoyed eating at their restaurant in Tokyo but somehow yesterday's lunch was a bit lacking (according to him).

We (three) enjoyed the different courses though.

After lunch we headed across the street to Malebranche for something sweet.

I chose their peach cake. This had meringue as well as whipped cream and nice slices of sweet peaches.

Then we went to the food floor to get some omiyage (souvenirs).

My host-mom bought us these tea gelatin sweets from Nakamura Tokichi.

Here it is in a dish...

The weather this week has been so gloomy (humid and gross), so it was nice spending time with my host-family.

I'm grateful we get together at least a couple times a year to catch-up with each other.

Thank you!
