Riding the Shinkansen with the boyfriend for our weekend trip to Kyoto
It was a long but good day with my boyfriend’s family. I wasn’t too quiet and even managed to make all of them laugh a few times. Also feel like I impressed them by singing my best Japanese, Chinese, and English songs at karaoke. Trilingual future son in law ftw! Now to recover from all of the food we ate.
Yesterday my boyfriend took the most horrifying picture of him as a manatee at this arcade called Joyopolis. Today he is still a manatee but in my bed.
Meeting the parents pt.2
I ended up rushing from work to get to the restaurant on time and ended up getting there ten minute before everyone else did. Shook hands with everyone and it wasn’t awkward! The whole family drinks so that helped to keep things relaxed. Got the basic questions but overall it felt like it went well.
Nothing like the tiger mom night of fake pleasantries I was imagining. Now I just need to drag the boyfriend to Thailand to meet my parents!
One of my favorite things to look at on the way back from work.
I’ve been eating out a lot recently. Feel like I haven’t been taking advantage of all the food in Japan so you can expect more food photos to come!
This pudding won my heart in the dessert aisle.
Today I did hanami in 新宿御苑 which ended prematurely due to the rain and then I had the biggest cabbage salad I’ve ever seen in Japan
