I had a lovely first birthday in Japan — a relaxing day was exactly what I wanted. Started the day in Japanese class, where Molly made birthday muffins for everybody. We have our first test next Monday though, so we buckled down on review. Then I had a quiet day… aside from setting off the building’s smoke alarm with my lunch… oops.
Jen and I went out and got Singaporean food for dinner. We got chicken rice, a Singaporean specialty, and laksa noodle soup. It was pretty good, but we have high standards when it comes to laksa, so we’ll have to continue scouring the local singaporean options. One of the nice thing about being in Tokyo is the plethora of asian food options — Indian, Thai, Chinese, Indonesian, Malaysian, etc.
Then on the way home we found an italian-style gellateria, which in addition to macha (green tea) ice cream, also had strawberry and hazelnut chocolate.Yam ice cream isn’t as gross as macha, but it’s nice to have a semi-normal dessert again. 🙂
Plus, Jen got me the seafarers expansion to catan, so we’re gonna have to start up game nights again!
But the best part of the day was that I got a job interview! Huzzah!
