Thank you ABC Cooking Studio for bringing me to Japan. 🙂
Day 2 activities as follow:
Blueberry farm to pick blueberries.
Food agriculture experience in bamboo forest (tried Nagashi Somen)
Visit a ranch and eat icecream
Checked in Intercontinental Yokohama Grand and dinner on Houseboat!
I will touch on the blueberry farm and the bamboo forest in this post first. 🙂
A group photo before we enter the Blueberry farm!
very sweet and juicy blueberries!
we have about an hour to pick as many as we can haha.
Here’s me when my hair is shorter.
look at how beautiful the blueberries are!
After we are done with our blueberries we went back to the little cafe and enjoy the blueberries we picked, together with our blueberry muffin and blueberry tea!
We had blueberry smoothie too! It is so refreshing and sweet!
Some pizza snacks for us and even handmade blueberry icecream!
Made with hokkaido fresh cream!
You can still see the skin of the blueberries in the ice cream and for the record. This is really good!
Some food photography here done by the photographer from ABC. 🙂
Next location bamboo forest where we are going to eat again!
All the friendly and cute obasan. 😀
Welcome to Bamboo forest, let’s eat Nagashi Somen.
Me in the forest, picture taken by Sydney.
Tamago, onigiri and corn. I love japanese corn!
Check out all the somen here. Nagashi Somen actually means flowing noodles.
Noodles will flow down the bamboo half pipe and we have to pluck them out with our chopsticks, dip into the tsuyu and slurp the noodles down! I failed at the first 2 attempts and finally succeeded at the third! Cherry tomatoes came flowing down too!
This is my prize of the day. Super delicious somen in tsuyu sauce. I want it now. 🙁
Pickled eggplants, condiments and tamago again!
Food food food and finally fruits!
Pumpkin for you? 😀
And when we are done eating, it’s time for art and craft.
Painting fruits and vegetables on a piece of card!
I randomly choose bell pepper and my teacher helped me to outline the vegetable and all I did was just adding the colours. lol!
Here is me adding the colours. hahaha.
Don’t ask me why my bell pepper look like that. I can’t answer you too. lol
After playing around a little more, we have a group photo. 😀
Just before we went off, we also tried some of the japanese pickled cucumbers.
It is very fresh and crunchy!
And here, Look at the lovely obasans! Saying good byes to us! They are so happy and nice!!! Miss them loads. ^^
Definitely enjoyed myself and I really missed the Somen at the bamboo forest. Hope I will be able to go there again! I know there is somen in kyoto too, Simon maybe we should go Kyoto next. hahaha!
Anyway, in the next post I will show the hotel, the room, random things and our dinner on the houseboat. =D
