Pork chops

For dinner I made pork chops the way my dad makes them. It was my first try but I think I came really close to the real thing, around 90% I would say. I'm just so proud of myself I called my mom and my dad to brag. Hehe.

Incidentally, my dad and my brother were having pork chops for dinner also. Talk about coincidence!

Shabu shabu in Kagoshima (Dolphin Port)

I forgot how much the set was, but it was around 1000 yen.
It came with some fish (first pic, very tasty!), tempura, meat (in the paper 'pot'), and plain rice.
It was a great meal!

Kinrori Odango (Kagoshima, Japan)

This store is called Kinrori Odango
See last picture to learn what a dango is, the picture is self-explanatory :P
This building is shaped like a dango, too!

The cute little entrance to the shop

I got myself an assortment of dangos
They were all pretty good
pretty chewy too LOL

Udon Soba Shop at Kinpouzan (Kagoshima, Japan)

Here's the sign that announces the Udon Soba (names of noodles) shop
Lookit the clouds!

The scenery on the way to the shop
This is in Minami-Satsuma City
...very breathtaking

The path that leads to the shop
pretty neat, huh?

Voila! The shop itself
very homey and very charming

A cicada! ...or something

I ordered Tonkotsu Ramen

This is what it looks like just outside the shop
it's very very serene and very very pretty :D

That, my friend, is the bathroom LOL

Posing for pictures after a very satisfying meal
