STREET FOOD TEMPLE 2015 (English)

Salut tous les mondes!
It is currently 1:15am but I just really feel like writing a post right now so here we go.
This weekend has kicked off to a great start so far as I finally experienced "French time" for the first time; when I say "French time," I mean how time seems to move slower in France. I'm so used to the hustle and bustle of L.A. and Tokyo that it was nice to just sit back and let time go on on its own. I'm going to break this post apart into two parts because it just makes sense, naturally, as you will see.
 
First off, a couple of my friends and I headed to STREET FOOD TEMPLE, which was taking place at Carreau de Temple near the station Republique. This place hosts many events and this time around it was a foodtruck festival. I believe the theme was Korean food because there was and entire street dedicated to Korean cuisine amongst various other food trucks which included American, Mexican, Thai, etc.
 
 
As I mentioned before, "Korea" was the theme so naturally, I got in line for the Korean food. It was a HUGE line that barely budged over the course of however long I was waiting but the taste of Asian food made up for it. I haven't had "regular" (my standards, I mean) steamed rice in such a long time, that that alone was enough for me make me happy.
 
Spicy Chicken "Bento" : 12 euros
 



Carreau de Temple took the food inside this building as well.
 



Bars, Music, Free Samples, and More Food, including Desserts
 

This Delicatessen Food Truck struck home because they served brownies, blondies, and cookie brownies. Umm, yes please!


Cookie Brownie: 3.5 euros
 

It's moments like these when you just thank your past-self for deciding to save as money as possible so that I don't feel guilty for splurging a bit on some yummy food.



 
There was a picnic that was planned for the Paris 1 ISAP students, or the International Student Association of Paris, in the evening that we planned to go to so we stopped by a local supermarket called MONOPRIX to buy some food and drinks. It was much larger than the one located near my dorm with a far larger stock and variety of everything - I was amazed and excited at the same time.
 
Nothing beats the wine section in France.
 

I have never seen a purple cauliflower before. Is there even a difference from the original one besides the color?
 

My friend is really serious about her bread.
Understandable because it was ridiculously cheap.
 
 
To continue and Talk soon!

P.S. I've been going back and forth between separating posts in English and Japanese to keeping them in the same post. Which do you all prefer?

アップするの忘れてたちょっと前の

今日は用事でOpéraの方に行ってきました。いつもならちょっと早く出て、散歩しながら行こうかなとも思うのですが、今日はたまたま大雨。傘の上手な使い方をいまいち理解していないというか下手なわたしは、正直さしていてあまり意味がなかった様な気がします。笑 さすがに歩くのはちょっと大変だなと思ったので、今回はメトロⓂ️を使うことにしました。 帰りにも少しだけ入ったGalerie Lafayetteを一周してきました。高級ブランドがたくさんあり、さすがに買い物はできませんでしたが、見ているだけでも楽しい空間でした。靴のコーナーを撮り忘れてしまったことがちょっと悔しいです。ちょっと変わった形や色のものからクラシックな形のものまでたくさんあって、モール全体をわたしのウォークインクローゼットにしたいくらいでした。



前回入れなかったユニクロ。 ちょ〜オシャレでした。 お店のレイアウト、ディスプレー全てがなんだか高級感たっぷりでした。 値段も日本より少し高め?のような気もしました。


じゃまた。

Saturday:
There are days when it is just not my day. Today's that day.
I literally spent all morning lying down catching up on Vlogmas videos and then sitting down at the library reading document after document for my thesis...like I could not have been more mute and yet I feel absolutely drained. And I had actually intended to write a few pages for my thesis but I have absolutely no motivation and ended up doing the "easy stuff" and just collected data.

On a brighter note, I finally got a haircut. My reason for liking to have shorter hair in the winter is quite simple: I hate having my hair get static-y after wrapping it around with my scarf. Japan has this wonderful opportunity to be a "Cut Model" and get a haircut for maybe a fourth or a fifth of the original price. Basically, trainees or assistants of the salons practice different styles on you and maybe snap a few before and after photos. Some people prefer to have their hair done by professionals but ho…

GRADUATION and MOVING TO HAKATA

Hello again.
I'm alive and well and slightly busier/have more responsibility on my hands  since the last time that I posted. Let's just first begin by saying that I am officially a college graduate. Here's the cake and plate of gigantic Gyozas that I celebrated with: 
大学を卒業しました。 台風直撃前で良かったです。 お祝い用のケーキと巨大餃子。




I'm starting my new job soon in Hakata, which is located in the Fukuoka prefecture.  I've moved into my new apartment, which I'm really loving but the last two months have just been such a whirlwind of prepping for graduation, moving, and getting things ready for my new job, that I'm just glad I can see finally start seeing an end to the commotion. Of course work is going to be a whole new journey but for the time being, I'm glad I have a roof over my head. My room has this loft and the stairs going up to it is basically a bunch of shelves. It's my bookshelf for now and it's looking pretty cool. I have a couple more books getting sent over an…
