月下美人(Gekka Bijin)

It's midnight Yokohama now. There is a flower blossoming in front of my apartment. The Japanese name is "Gekka Bijin" which means like a Beautiful woman under the moon. Gekka is under the moon, Bijin is a Beautiful women. It's a Selenicereus, one of cactai. This flower always opens up once in a Summer night. It also has strong perfume, you will be wrapped with this sweet perfume. It makes me sleepy. *yawning*

<--Next day

A typhoon is coming.

There is a typhoon coming through Japan tomorrow. It was raining for a little while ago. Now, It's humid and hot.. Tonight, I had couscous salad (like this) and sipping a glass of Ricard. You know, It's anis flavor. I like sipping Ricard or Pernod in the day like tonight. It would be nice if I have a bottle of absinthe too. It's also a liqueur. I'm a light drinker, but I like those liqueurs. I think I like herb. Ah, I wanna say this, Please don't assume that I'm a strong drinker or an alcoholic. Actually, I put wine pictures here or there, but not such a person. I just like driking and eating. :p Back to about Absinthe, It haven't been sold for a long while, but Recently, you can buy it. It's safer than before. It used to incluede a kind of toxicity. some famous people died by this liqueur.
Tonight, I'm listening those CDs below. They are Archer Prewitt's albums.

Tonight, I've opened a Sake. It's made from Chiba prefecture, Japon.
The name is Kido-izumi, an organic sake, no chemical ferilizer. C'est sucrée un peu, mais not only sweetness. it's tasty. I recommend you to cool it in the refrigerator before drink. Well, Sake is usually supposed to be kept in the refrigerator anyway. It's sensitive.

Does anyone know what Fuulin(or see this) is? It's the Japanese wind bell. I went to a Temple in Kawasaki today. It's located near Yokohama, Japan. and see a Fuulin bazaar. The temple, Kawasaki-Taishi, holds this event at this time in every years. It's a small bazaar, but there are many kinds of Fuulin coming from all over the Japan. Usually, you will see the Fuulin made with glass, but there are another material ones as well.

This one is fuulin with DARUMA face on it.

These ones are made with a metal.

Wine tasting event.

Yestarday, I went to a wine tasting event. the event holds once a month. We tastes 4,5 bottles of wine and talk, more like just chatting, about wine or the other thing. At this time, We've tasted Langue doc wines.
This one, the pic on the left, is made with Muscadet. Usually, Muscat is used to make sweet wine though, this one is less sweet than usual. it's casual and elegant. I think people would enjoy it on a picnic.
This one is red. I've got a feeling that it smells like chocolate. I like this one.
Fromage! One of participants has brought this. It's so delicious!!
