A long overdue update

Hello dear readers! How are you? I’m sorry it’s been such a long time!

ごきげんよう〜サフィラです。お久しぶりです!

To catch up, I’ve been traveling, working and attending some lolita meet ups. The first thing I’d like to mention is Journeys in Japan. I went to the island of Shikoku to make a television program about  the Iya Valley. It was a wonderful experience visiting this remote area and I was also delighted to recieve some kind messages from people who had watched the program. They are all very much appreciated and I’m sorry to take a long time to write back sometimes!

 

NHK World- Journeys in Japan

 
最近旅行、仕事、ロリィタイベントをやっていました。NHKワルドのジャーニーズ・イン・ジャパンを見ましたか?旅番組です。この番組で私は四国へ行きました!山の中ですごいところへ行きましたよ!オンラインで見られますよ〜

If you haven’t seen the program yet, you can watch it online on NHK World On Demand.

  
Once again I modeled at the Gothic Lolita fashion event Brilliant Star Decorations. It’s so much fun being onstage and the audience members are a fashion show themselves!

またブリデコに出ました。いつも楽しいです!

In contrast to  BriDeco, I also did a catalogue for Blue Blue Japan.

  
BLUE BLUE JAPANのカタログにも出ました。ブリデコよりおとなしいですね!

Once again, apologies for not keeping up with blogging. I want to regularly update again this year!

Oiso 

 Hello dear readers! How are you?

ごきげんよう〜サフィラです。

Recently I went to stay at my friend’s family house in Oiso, Kanagawa prefecture. We also went to Niigata together to see the Echigo-Tsumari Art Trienniale which I’ll write about next time! 

最近大磯で友達のご家族のお家で泊まりました。

We went to visit Bun-chan and his mother! Isn’t he a handsome fellow?  

イケメンのブンちゃんとブンちゃんのお母さんに会いました。

  

We also visited this adorable cake shop that was decorated with antiques!

可愛いケーキ屋さんにも行きました。私はこういうレトロなお店が大好きです!

We had dinner at the Geihinkan, a Western-style residence built during the Meiji era. It is now an Italian restaurant and also popular for weddings. We had a prowl around inside while we were waiting for our pizzas. By the way, I took almost the same picture wearing the same dress at Luseinekan. Maybe I’ll try to do this everytime I see a dressing table!

大磯の迎賓館で美味しいお食事しました。明治時代の素敵な洋風の建物です。今イタリアンレストランと結婚式場です。中は綺麗な家具がいっぱいあります。
 

Here’s me outside the Geihinkan. And look, a fairy is peeking out behind me! Thank you for a lovely time, my fairy, and lots of luck for your further studies abroad!

迎賓館の外です。あら、私の後ろ妖精さんがいます!妖精さんありがとう!また会いましょう!

Thanks for reading and see you again soon!

Tenno no Ryoriban Recipe Book

Hello dear readers! How are you?

ごきげんよう〜サフィラです。

There was a special recipe book released in conjunction with The Emperor’s Cook featuring dishes from the series. I received it as a present from TBS after the production wrapped.

最近友達と一緒に天皇の料理番のレシピブックの料理を作ってみました。

    
 

Along with a friend I tried making the salmon pie that Tokuzo serves at the Hotel Ritz. It was a little bit tricky but it turned out very tasty! The filling is salmon, bechamel sauce, mushrooms, onion, parsley and a little bit of rice.

サーモンのパイを作ってみました!少し難しかったけど、美味しかったです。中身はサーモン、パセリ、ソースベシャメル、マッシュルーム、そしてお米も少し入っています!

      
It was hard to get the pies looking beautiful and there were some explosions….  

ちょっと爆発がありました…へへ

Anyway the taste is the most important thing and it that we succeeded! I’m looking forward to trying out more recipes in the future. 

また今度何か作りたいと思います!

Thanks for reading and see you again soon!
