I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.


Sake No Hana, London











Sake No Hana Cherry Blossom pop-up April 7 – May 19

Cherry blossoms: makes one of a many fleeting moments in life, glorious little pockets of time that just always seem to be in a hurry to leave. Namely this list also includes other equally magnanimous things like the 1-minute warmth expiry in a fresh donut, or the first 5 minutes of a 42-km marathon when you feel like you should be a member of the Avengers… oh and comfort on a 12h flight, lasts up till about the first time the seatbelt sign turns off.

Back to sakura (cherry blossoms) though, is it just me or did it last about one afternoon this year? I feel like it was there one morning in March and then blown off by tea time. So much so that when I arrived for a meeting at the full pink bush atop the Sake No Hana doors I assumed it was some kind of special guest entrance to the Ministry of Magic when a pee-smelling red telephone box just won’t do. Alas, it was magic alright, a pop-up display designed by florist Veevers Carter, blossoms raining above the bar and entwining everything around, including the sakura-inspired menu that makes up for the lost picnic under cherry trees we Londoners were owed this Spring. One thing though, is apparently the pop-up ends on the 19th May, which is in like… two days, and for this I apologize for my blogging competency which is of similar fleeting consistency as the aforementioned donut warmth… Do call to book for a cheeky Sakura crystal double-layer bento box for lunch on Monday, or just drop by for a Sakuratini cocktail at the bar. At least then we can say we can tick the ‘Springtime picnic’ box and move on to harassing Summer.

  16. This post makes me sad. It’s making me hungry but mostly because it’s another reminder that we don’t have places as cool as this in Perth. It looks really beautiful there & I love the bright green tubes hanging in contrast to the soft sakura blossoms.

    일본의 마케팅에 항상 놀라고 있습니다. 체리블라썸이라는 영어가 있는데도 불구하고
    벚꽃을 사쿠라라고 많이 부르니까요. 사실 벚꽃의 기원은 우리나라인데 말이죠;)…
    항상 예쁜 사진 보면서 영감받고 갑니다. 감사합니다!

  20. 아 정말 그런가요, 한국인인 저도 몰랐던 사실이네요 – 일본 문화가 많이 낭만화(?) 되어있긴하지만 그만큼 한국만의 아름다움도 요즘은 많이 홍보되고 있으니 다행이예요 ;)
    (국내 브랜드가 좀 적극적으로 외국거주 블로거들에게 손을 좀 뻗었으면 하는면도 있지만…)
    오랜만에 한국말로 리플이 달려서 기분좋네요, 자주 놀러오세요~

  21. It’s wonderful ! :)

  22. What an absolutely magical place! Definitely looks like out of a springtime fairy tale. Will have to stop by this location the next time I’m in London. x

  45. Hi there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my apple
    iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this problem.
    If you have any suggestions, please share. Appreciate it!

  46. You have a very sensitive style of photography, a careful eye for the fine aesthetics. This post really highlighted it.
