A bun with eyes and sausage that looks like an octopus

Sometimes life may be difficult, anything that happens can drag you down; job, friends, family, political environment, health, boyfriend, weather…whatever, whenever you are in a bad mood.

Me, too! But on the other hand, I have a special gift from God, I feel happy easily whenever I  see any ‘face’ without nose or even mouth, I am joyful with laughter. I don’t know why? may be they are just so cute? so true and direct? looks like simple-minded.

This morning when I finished my Sunday service, I went into a boulangerie and met this ‘Mr Octopus’ 章魚包,  original I thought it’s weird to have octopus filling inside a bun, but it seems ‘he’ really wanted me to bring him home, you see? his eyes :D , so I got him. When I put him onto my plate, I know I have to do something before ‘killing’ him, and this was the picture that I would like to dedicate to Mr Octopus for having fun with me in this rainy day without ‘Justice’!

Thank you for bring me joy, even it’s only for a while, you make me resume my energy and hope to carry on, tomorrow is another fresh new day :D

Oh! by the way, guess what is actually inside? I am 100% correct: A simple-minded of a few shredded cheese, that’s all :D


Good Taste

Colourful package of the soy sauce
"Hey, pal; this Black soy sauce is almost expire, can you help?" of my friend who traveled and returned from Okinawa, brought this souvenir to somebody and/ or due to whatever reason, it can't be delivered......"Well, my pleasure!"

Ha, ha! the real attraction to me of course is not the content inside, but the package outside. It's always an eye candy for those traditional products' packaging found in Japan; no matter the color, wrapping material used, typography or the "accessories",

Even though the taste of soy sauce is not too special, it was enhanced by the package which creates the favor and aroma of Ryukyu :  

colorful printed fabric of sunshine + 
dry sea weed from the sea under the blue sky + 
natural wood block printing like label and tag......
generations after generations.

Yes! the taste of freshness, pureness and uniqueness. 

The Magic of Packaging Design ! Thanks Kwan.
