time for something orange

if i am back in montreal now
it would probably be referred to pumpkins

however since i am in japan
something orange at this time of the season refers to


the merit of living in country side in japan is
i get seasonal veggies and fruits from ppl around me

and guess what i got yesterday?!?

a bag full of persimmons!!
i love them so it's ok

for now...i have endless supply of persimmons
>because my jap grandma has a persimmon tree in her backyard
a month ago...i had endless supply of chestnuts
>because she also has a chestnut tree in her backyard
2 months ago...i had endless supply of eggplant, cucumbers, and all kinds of tomatos
>because she also grows them in her backyard
in may...i had endless supply of bamboo shoots
>because she also has a bamboo forest in her backyard

go figure how many things grow in her backyard
it's like magic!!

oh...those poor little gold fish

gold fish scooping is one of my fav
(scooping with a 'net' that is made of thin paper)
you can often find it among the booths during festival

here i go!!!

and this is S E R I O U S!!!

after 10? 15 mins of intense concentration
my paper net finally broke a hole... and ended my scooping

i got 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 !!!
apparently this is not a bad score for beginners!! hehe!
