Japanese sweets: sugary play dough!

Hisashiburi desu ne? (Long time no see, eh?). We're in the final stretch of our Japan stay, and we've been neglecting the blog a bit. So what have we been up to? We took a little trip to Singapore in May. Our adventures consisted mostly of eating excessive amounts of glorious food, sweating, and going to the weirdest statue park I've ever been to. We also went sledding! There was a science museum where you could get a joint ticket to an artificial indoor snow park next door so that after learning about climate change you can make a snowman in a giant freezer box in a country where the temperature is 90 degrees with 100% humidity year round! Also their airport has a three story high slide that was pretty sweet.

We're slowly starting to prepare for our Japanese departure and subsequent adventures. We're saving money for said subsequent adventures, so we're keeping our activities on the cheap side for a while. We did enjoy a Japanese candy making class last weekend.

Guess I won't quit my day job… Oh wait, I totally am.
