And so the bento box love and coffee obsession continues… Bear with me please; I can’t help myself.
Aiii! So kawaii! #WANT Available from Japan Supermall via Amazon, the Kotobuki Geisha Doll bento set.
Although I’ve expressed my deep admiration for Nessie, there are still times I may want to brew an American style drip using Hawaii grown beans. What better to brew with than this 1941 design from Chemex, a wonderful mid-century modern design that has remained relatively unchanged. This method of brewing in a glass vessel is highly touted for its smoothness and flavor. You can purchase your own brewer and filters locally at Maui Coffee Roasters on Hana Highway.
I’m listening to 1Q84 on Audible this month and I hesitate to say too much about the plot line. I only read a few reviews and I did so after I had started the book. I wanted to email each and every reviewer with a piece of my mind because they each revealed a twist, turn or aha moment of the plot I had not reached yet. So, I’ve vowed to read no more reviews until I’m done. I will tell you this book is eloquently written, starts off a bit slow and then turns into a gripping story set in Japan in the 80s. I get so excited to get in the car (which is unlike me, I hate driving) because I can’t wait to hear what happens next. Not into audio books? You can pick up a hardcopy at Barnes & Noble.
Alexander Wang bags are made of yummy pebbled or soft smooshable leather. Like his RTW, each bag has a bit of understated edginess. I have the Rocco (a duffle like shape with studs on the bottom) and the Brenda (cross body with double chains, reminiscent of a small camera bag) but still have my eye on one more for my collection, the Diego bucket bag.
