Ding dong!

I saw this sign on my FB page a little while back and darned it it ain't the cutest thing!

It's a hand-written cardboard sign posted at some eatery saying "If you'd like to get our attention, please push the button below and say Ding Dong! in a loud voice. We'll get to you as soon as we can."

Gotta say, this got some laughs from me and my friends! Kudos to the eatery for their creativeness, too! I'm sure a place with this kind of sense of humor would be a great place to have a filling meal with lots of laughs.

Hope you got some laughs out of this, too!

Sakura sakura

The sakura was absolutely lovely this year, as in the past years. Fortunately for the weekend they were in full bloom, it wasn't raining--for once. Tho Saturday turned out to be cloudy and chilly from noon but Sunday was lovely all day, despite the winds being on the chilly side.

There's a road that passes through a residential area that's lined on both sides with cherry blossom trees and it feels like you're driving under a canopy of pink blossoms. It was really pretty, even at night time. But I would not like to be driving under that pink canopy when it rains. Once the petals stick to your car, it's not easy getting them off.

Pretty soon it'll be "snowing" pink petals but we'll enjoy the view while we can.

Roast Dinner

Due to the "worst storm since the 50's", Roast Night at a pub I go to every now and then in Yokohama was changed to last night instead of the usual Tuesday nights. Since I finished my work well before quitting time, I asked a friend to join me for dinner and off we went to enjoy a roast dinner of roast beef, roast lamb, carrots, peas, mashed potatoes and Yorkshire pudding with gravy and mint sauce.

Man, was that a good dinner! The gravy was amazing and the mint sauce was refreshing and went very well with the lamb. Even my friend who wasn't a big fan of mint sauce liked this one. Gotta say, this pub does serve good food! Fish and chips are always popular, the chicken for the chicken and chips are wonderfully tender, the shepherd's pie is great and they offer daily specials, too.

It was great getting together with my friend since I haven't seen her in a while. Good food, good company . . . what more can a gal ask for? LOL
