From Mount Fuji To Oshino Hakkai

AFTER THE SNOW PLAYING AT MOUNT FUJI, we proceeded on the bus journey to Oshino Hakkai, less than an hour away, if I am not mistaken.  Not so accurate about the bus rides cos most of the time I would be ZZzzzzz whenever the opportunity arises so that I would be more refreshed looking when my photos were taken!  LOL... Just kidding!

Alright, so what does Oshino Hakkai has to offer?  I remember this place, been there before, we walked through a small village... Itinerary says.. The eight ponds are fed by the snow melt from the slopes of nearby Mount Fuji and the water filters down the mountain through layers of lava for over 80 years, resulting in very clear spring water that is revered by the locals. 
Clear spring water from the Mount Fuji lurking behind.... 


Tourist spot.... for us... 
Don't fall into the pond... 
Filled with fishes and cold spring water from the mountain... 
Reminded me of those dramas I've seen... 
Besides sightseeing, there are shops as well.... 
Samples to taste... and to buy... 
We ended up buying lots of crackers and other snacks from here..... 
Despite the cold, ice cream is still irresistible... 
Soon it was time for lunch!
Part of the food... 
Plus Meat plus beancurd pattie...
Served with hot bean curd soup...
Makes me realize this shop must be famous for their smooth beancurd... 
Love their springy steamed rice... very nice.... 
Our healthy lunch!

  5. You are so blessed to have such clear view and photos for Mount Fuji. When I was there, the local guide told us that seldom the view will be clear.

  7. What a lucky girl eating ice cream in Winter. I have visited Japan so many times but yet to see Mount Fuji. So shy to confess....

    The Japanese eat lots of soft bean curd that's why their facial complexions are smooth and milky white like Tofu. I am not kidding.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
