LIFE IS A JOURNEY, ARE YOU READY?

A VERY USELESS VIDEO. WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS?


We love most things Japanese but what is the point of this really? Hmmm, Swiedebie, if you are reading this, it is probably something to make for Kiki so that she eats her mandarins?

This is a writeup from Spoon Tamago :

During our stay in Japan over the holidays we had the pleasure of dining on Japan’s favorite wintertime fruit, the mikan. In the States I’ve seen them referred to as satsuma oranges or mandarin oranges. And on a number of occasions I’ve been fooled by the variant clementine, which, by no means, is comparable to the sweet, juicy, thin-skinned and seedless original, which has quenched a many throat during the long and dry Tokyo winter.

Together with the kids we devoured a dozen a day. And when you peel 12 mikans a day, it’s only a matter of time, considering the natural progression of things, before people get tired of peeling mikans the same old way. This year a confluence of events, which may or may not have had anything to do with the publication of this book, caused a stir amongst the nation and suddenly it was all the rage to peel mikans in a creative fashion. You could not turn on the TV in the morning without seeing a talk show host sporting a mikan wristwatch.
