The Chocolate’s day

#throwback #14 Feb 2020

It was Valentine’s Day a week ago and for us here in Japan, it was the Chocolate’s day (o^^o)

Everybody might already knows it, where girls giving chocolates to boys they adore on Valentine’s Day in Japan.
Though, I still love to bring up my boys to have delicacy towards girls and to have the caring spirit of “gentleman first”,
we make chocolates on Valentine’s Day to match the ambience around (*´∀`*)

First, the recipe for my 3 years old Little-Cook!

The chocolates making by Kta-the-Cook

The chocs made by Kta-boss(*´꒳`*)

Instead of saying he making chocolates, we rather say he was just melting and reshaping the chocolates  ( ̄▽ ̄)

Hope everyone did too!!

Setsubun 節分
★2017/02/06 13:55

While most of my friends were celebrating Chinese New Year (Lunar New Year), getting fat eating New year’s feast and snacks with all their might, I was here with my boys were having peaceful days…wondering when can we too getting fat with mom’s cooking, lousang, kuih kapek, etc!!

Anyways, in Japan, we had Setsubun 節分 on the 3rd Feb, literally means a  seasonal division, which also means winter is ending and spring is coming!!
People here usually celebrate this day by performing “mamemaki” 豆まき, throwing beans to cleanse away all the evil spirits (bad luck or so) from the former year, inviting good lucks to the coming year!

Throwing beans at Setsubun 豆まき

It’s like a new start! A festival that was thought of as a sort of New Year’s Eve previously in the Lunar calendar.

Evil out lucks in! 鬼は外、福は内〜
The familiar characters during this festival.
Left: 福の神 Fuku, the God that brings luck
Right: 鬼 Oni, the Devil that brings bad luck.

And so, everywhere was playing their role on throwing beans! f_been.gif

Made a 'Oni'mask at kindergarten 節分、幼稚園で鬼のお面作った〜In the kindergarten, they made an ‘Oni’ mask, and did the ‘beans throwing’!

Making the Setsubun beans box 節分、豆箱作りAt home, we made a beans box from a milk pack..
