I started my new year morning with Shishimai (lion dance) and Masuzake (Japanese sake in a wooden square cup).
After experiencing Japanese traditional new year, we went for Belgium breakfast at my favorite breakfast restaurant: Le Pain Quoitidien, Tokyo Midtown Roppongi.
I had New Year Special Menu.
I started with a glass of sparkling wine to celebrate 2019.
Off course, I enjoyed all food.
Furthermore, I received a new year gift from the restaurant: Fukin (Japanese traditional kitchen cloth) and a ticket for free audio museum guide.
After heavy brunch, I played with little niece at Hinoki-cho Park.
Though we had a heavy brunch, we enjoyed strawberry tea with Phillips Chocolate the Boston’s Oldest Chocolateir for tea break.
Coincidently, I used a mug that I bought it at Pier 1 Imports in Boston.
We relaxed a bit at home and went for grocery shopping; I cooked Yakiniku (Korean BBQ) for dinner.
Can I call BBQ cooking ? hahaha
We are spending New Year in very traditional way: relaxing family gathering.
