I love my bike - I have already told you about that .
Also I have told that it is not very popular thing here . The mean of transportation of some Indian laborers .

Will this ever change here ?
Some people belonging to some sport organization decided to do something about it ! They want to advertise bicycle riding around here .But they admit that it is not an easy mission at all !

Boys tend to refuse riding a bike - so how to make local girls to try it ?

How to make Sashimi ?

A great photo calendar made by a Canadian citizen living in Japan ! It is worth to check it out !

We had this as hors d'oeuvres !
Going to Oshi Sushi restaurant at Eid proved to be a great choice !As it is a new place at the third floor of the Royal plaza we managed to avoid the crowds .Only four five families were having Eid lunch and it was really relaxing there !The music , the beautifully and simply set table , the bento , the sashimi , the miso , the Japanese curry ... all made me feel as I was in Japan ... it was a reaL ESCAPE .
We were using fork and spoon - but also we were trying to use the chopping sticks .The hot, wet towels were meant to clean our hands before and not after eating .I learnt that only later when I was reading more on the Japanese cuisine !
I had the first raw salmon of my life and I survived !
