I had a most wonderful surprise today. The moment I got home, there was a package waiting for me! All the way from Japan! :D
I eagerly tore up the package (so uncharacteristic of me), leaving just the return address intact, and was exhilarated to see the silicone muffin molds that Caryn of Sari-Saring Kulay (Tagalog for ‘A Multitude of Colours’) has mentioned in her blog just a few weeks ago. Talk about instant stress relief for me! ;)
Note that I wasn’t the only one excited about the package as my kids’ radars instantaneously sensed the presence of small packets of Japanese chocolates nestled inside the topmost muffin mold. There were 5 little boxes — one for each of my little ones. Caryn, oh Caryn, how thoughtful of you! Thank you so much!
There were also 2 packets of what looked like Pokemon gummies, which I safely stashed away in a drawer.
Needless to say, my kids finished off the chocolates faster than you can say ‘Domo arigato‘ (Twin2 enjoyed the coffee-flavoured Coffee Beat, saying it’s like his father’s coffee!) and begged for more. Looks like I’ll have to make a trip to Isetan this weekend to look for these yummy Meiji mini treats. I personally loved Choco Baby. Can you blame me for sampling each one of them? ;)
Looks like I’ll be whipping up muffins this weekend!
