Seeing Shrinecastle around NYC

Imagine my surprise when I walked into the Japanese Culinary Center for a Motsu Nabe event and saw this:

It's a print-out of "Japanese Culinary Center Puts the Smackdown on Gyoza," a blog entry I wrote about the delicious dumplings event held by Japanese Culinary Center.

I thought that was incredibly cool.

Christmas Tree!

Yes, most people put up their Christmas trees right after Thanksgiving, so I suppose we're a little late in that respect. But our Christmas tree is up and decorated, and I couldn't be happier!

We went a little retro this year with giant bulbs.

Here is one of our favorite ornaments, the octopus.

Tremendously cool octopus ornament!

















































Our American tree fits in nicely with the Japanese touches in our place.

Dining/Living room!























Even the office door is decked out for the holidays.

Merry Christmas everyone!
