#Wonderland Of Tea Party

Blogger Events

Hihi everyone!

Back in August, I attended my very first blogger event in the past year! 

Yes, it's been a long time since I last attended a blogger event ever since I headed to Japan for 3 months mid last year.

And cos I'm hardly in Singapore over the weekends, it makes it even more difficult for me to attend blogger events as they are mostly held over the weekends.

Anyways, yea! Back to attending events feels good!


Wore my yukata to the event not because Himeko and I knew that it's all Japanese themed, but because we were heading to 夏祭り (Summer Festival) after the event that evening.


And yea! Super happy to finally own a WC Kumatan Yukata!!!

Always wanted one ever since it was released years ago but I didn't manage to get one.

So when I saw it at the store on sales months back, I bought it without a second thought!


And yea! Himeko was also in Yukata!


If you find the Yukata Himeko's wearing familiar, it's because it's mine and I wore it to 夏祭り for 2 years! 

Once in Japan next year and once in Singapore the year before!

Anyways, back to the event proper!

It was a tea tasting session and like mentioned, it was a Japanese themed event.

Why?


Cos we are having awesome tea from Japan!!!

And first up was the Ginger Tea of  Shimodozono!


I understand that many people are afraid or dislike the taste of Ginger but trust me, Japan really knows how to make Ginger yummy!


I have always disliked ginger since year but ever since staying in Japan for that 3 months last year, I realised that Japanese ginger products really don't taste that bad!

And some actually taste pretty good!


And for the tea of Shimodozono, they contain Mix Herbal Extracts which helps to balance your body hormone naturally, helps in detox & cleansing, revitalize & vitalize, support body functions and lastly have a relaxing & calming effect!


This Ginger Tea of theirs used Organic Ginger in the making which is a powerful antioxidant. Plus! It also helps to improve stomach functions, improve metabolism, and help in reducing inflammation & infection!

Just imagine how healthy it is!


This Ginger Tea does not have a very strong ginger taste which many people are afraid of.

Plus! It's of black tea base so if you're a fan of black tea, do try this out!


They paired their Ginger Tea with this special yummy brownie! 

It's not very sweet and the taste of the tea and cake compliments each other really well!


Next! Mixed Herb & Roasted Tea!


Roasted tea... you may be thinking "Huh? What tea is that?"

Perhaps you'll be more familiar with ほじ茶 (hojicha) instead?

ほじ茶が大好き!


Paired with this Japanese fluffy pancakes with Azuki Beans & Apples!


The sauce was like cheesy base which surprisingly goes really well with their Mixed Herb & Roasted Tea!


And lastly! Rose Oolong Tea!

A fan of Rose Tea? A fan of Oolong Tea?

You're gonna love this!


A nice cup of good Oolong Tea with the fragrance of Rose, what more can I ask for?!

(Yes, I am a fan of Rose tea AND Oolong Tea!)

This is just the best of both worlds!


And of course! Awesome tea paired with awesome dessert!


This sesame based dessert was just super smooth and super yummy!

And with sips of the fragrant Rose Oolong Tea, it was just heaven!

A huge huge thanks to Tealy and Blackbox for the invitation to such an awesome event that day!

If you are interested in trying any of the teas mentioned or others, do check out Tealy's website at

Oki! That's all for this post now!

See you in my next post soon!

XOXO, Tsuriki

Solo Korea Trip -
Finding old memories & creating new ones

Travelogue

Hihi everyone!

Ok! Its time to put all the ads and reviews aside and get back to my Korea trip back in April!

Feels so bad that it's already October and I have yet to blog finish on this April.

Thinking that soon I'm gonna go for my Taiwan trip in Nov, I wonder when will I finish blogging about it... 

But ya! I will try my best to make time and keep posting, keep blogging!

So it was the fifth day of my trip that it was the day I planned to go to Lotte World!

I was very excited to go to Lotte World even though many people told me that I should totally go to Everland instead cos their rides are way better but I really wanted to go to Lotte World cos the last time I went there when I was 4, I didn't get to do much.

And another thing is that, that was the place I remember most from that Korea trip, the very last trip I had with my mom and dad and sis as one family...

Ok. Back to happy stuff!


Near the station, I spotted Spiderman and Iron-man!


Seriously have no idea when were there these 2 characters but... oh well.


Super pretty right?


And SNSD with Kim Soo Hyun!

Although I've never been like a real fan of SNSD, I still feel kinda sad over the whole Jessica leaving the group saga. 

Just hope that Jessica will be able to find a better agency that will give their full support to her.


PORORO!!!


And yea! Finally gotten my tickets to Lotte World!

Got the full admission ticket which.. I seriously can't remember how much does it costs already.

Lotte World!!! I'm back!!!
