I was so ecstatic receiving this “pasalubong” from Senpai (sort of) from Japan. Kuya O came to Vienna to do some research and I am really ecstatic to have someone like him. I can’t remember when was the last time I had an intelligent conversant around. 😉 Before coming to Vienna he asked me what I want for pasalubong and I can’t really tell him what since I have a lot in my head…I asked for Naruto Kamaboko which is not that easy to bring because it should be frozen…he anyway brought me some!!! (Awesome!) Along with it he brought this big mochi package….yaaay!
(I would have loved the Hoshi No Ojisama/Little Prince but asked too late, lol.)
I found a new colorful subject for food photography! 🙂
These treats are as yummy as they look! I love the green tea flavor best!
Mochi is Japanese rice cake made of glutinous rice pounded into paste and molded into shape. In Japan it is traditionally made in a ceremony called mochitsuki. The rectangular version reminds me of tikoy which is also a favorite!
Looking at these photos again make me wanna eat everything in the box…but happiness is sometimes sweeter with a bit of patience…so yeah, I’ll wait until tomorrow hihi.
