Random Drawings

I love to draw even though I’m not that good at it, I still draw. I’m mostly interested to draw anime or manga characters, Harvest moon characters, and/or some doodles and chibi. But to be honest, I can only draw good arts when I’m inspired because if I’m not, those paper and sketches will end up in the trash. So today, I decided to share with you some of my artworks. I used to have so many but I gave it as a farewell gift to one of my best friends.

These are all unfinished versions. I’m very sorry about that. It’s just that I have that bad habit wherein I don’t finish my artworks except if it’s a school project.

Japanese Products

Hello, everyone! I’m back! Okay, so I wasn’t able to post anything yesterday and the day before because I’d got to run a few errands. I’m so sorry about that! But don’t fret because today, I’m free! Hooray! Oh and by the way, I was able to change my blog’s GMT, finally! I think this is the correct one. It was quite confusing, though. Enough of that! Today, I decided to tackle about Japanese products, specifically, Japanese Food/Snacks! These snacks came all the way from Japan — Chiba Prefecture to be exact. This was a present from one of my friend’s mom who resides in Japan *Arigatou Gozaimasu, Oba-san!* Since this is a very late post, I’ve already eaten some of them so sad to say, they were not included in the photo.

By the way, I’m not familiar with Japanese products/snacks so I named some of these wrong, please correct me! Thank you!

1. Ebi-Obanyaki – This is like a shrimp chip or cracker. Unfortunately, I didn’t like it. It has a weird taste, well at least for me. And add to that, a “fishy” flavor (well, it’s shrimp, what do you expect, you idiot?) that I really, really abhor when it comes to food.

2. I don’t know the name – (I can only read OSHIYABU__) *not sure with the “bu” part* This one tastes like a dried seaweed or something. I’m not really sure! It’s very weird.

3. I don’t know the name – (I can only read _WAKAME_SHISO_) I don’t know how to describe the taste. It’s sour, though. I’m not sure if this is the sukonbu because I ordered one since I was very curious how it tastes like (yeah, I’m a Gintama die hard fan and I love Kagura-chan so much!).

4. Dorayaki – I think of all the snacks oba-san gave me, this is the one that I really like the most. Fine, fine. Scratch that. Let’s be honest, this is the only one that I like. This one tastes like a pancake with bean paste fillings. I actually got 2 different fillings but unfortunately, I already ate the other one (which I couldn’t remember the flavor).

5. Senbei (Japanese Rice Crackers) – I’m not so sure if both of them are called Senbei. Anyway, it’s too salty for my taste. It reminds me of Chinese crackers, although I prefer the Chinese version.

Manga – comics created in Japan, or by Japanese creators in the Japanese language.
