Japanese breakfast

Last morning's breakfast was a Japanese porridge.
When I felt sick, decided to have Japanese style breakfast every morning for keeping my health, but I couldn't continue it.Because it takes time to make.
Porridge is the easiest.
Sadly, my Japanese breakfast time is only when I felt sick.

French salt is tasty. Fits for Japanese meals too.

Went outside and found red leaves..

Found our favorite artist's show.

Evening bike cruising

We went to evening bike cruising.
My boyfriend likes riding a bike at night.
He said biking at night is special.

After hours, we drink "kriek",Danish cherry beer.
It wasn't too sweet,more than sour I thought and taste natural, I'm not a big fun of sweet drinks so liked it.

Mr.David's magic cards

This chcken stock soup was my hangover cure@Stock Market (granville island).

The other day, I went to help my friend's booth at Granville island, Public market.
Public market is Vancouver's famous sightseeing place.
There's artist's booths, fun to look at.
I always adore his magical cards,
David is one of an artist of the market.
His cards are original design, I wonder how can he create the beautiful patterns.

I heard he was inspired by a Japanese book and started to make own.
My brother had same book when he studied architecture in university.
Then I was in a middle school and interested in his book.
I remember one day I took over the book and tried to make a card, it was really complicated and I couldn't finished it.
Anyways, it is interesting and inspired to talk with artists at the market.

Since my old bicycle was totally broken, I was looking for a good looking bike.I was looking at classifieds a lot and asked a few people's post, but there's no luck around my place.
Today, I went to the place a person who wants to sale a cool bike. It was a bit further away from my place, I took skytrain and two buses, about an hour to get there.

There's beautiful trails and woods, nice place.

My mother's work

My mother was a sewing teacher, I'm wearing her works since I was a child.
Now she is retired and relaxing, is into drawing pictures, she doesn't have plans to make clothing anymore, I guess.
this is one of her work.
I like her sense, specially choice of fabrics.

She always finish her work perfectly, she worked even
at a snap button.

I bought a pair of new shoes at umeboshi shoes,
they have classical look, simple shape.
It is hard to find simple style shoes, like mens style with reasonable price,
I'm very happy with the shoes.
