Hokkaido is one of the places on my bucket list and it is famous for its fresh produce, crabs, fresh milk and dairy products. Till I can make it there for a holiday... but for now, I can just sample its food from the Hokkaido food fairs organised locally to promote the island. Chanced upon one at Takashimaya over the weekend and I had a fabulous time just checking out the products. Think I might go delirious if I were to go to Hokkaido.

A little 50 cents "trashure" I picked up from a charity flea market this morning. Almost didn't see him amongst the other stuff. It's the cutest, miniature version of Paddington Bear in a small paper bag with a tag that says "Please look after this Bear. Thank you." That's how his story began years ago in a children's book - a bear from Peru who was found in Paddington station in London and later adopted by the Brown family. He came with nice little red plastic Wellies too and I gave him my miniature suitcase that used to store chocolates. I grew up with his stories and I will look after this little bear.
