Shared some snacks with hubby: Apple Cramel Yakkoi Sable (from Aomori prefecture) and a Sweet Potato Galette (from Osaka). The chewy sable was really yummy and so was the sweet potato cookie. It was adorable how the sweet potato cookie looked like an actual slice of Japanese sweet potato.

Dadu Moonlight Black ice cream 😀 This was cool looking and yummy! The ice cream was cherry flavoured.

I’ve spent a ridiculous amount of money this month. To be fair, most of the money was spent on things that I actually needed, like a new wallet, a parka to wear in this cold weather and some other clothes etc. However some of these purchases were things that were quite expensive and that I didn’t really need, like the new Deadpool comic I got and another geeky shirt. So I feel rather irresponsible and bad this month. It’s now a pretty tight  budget for the rest of the month.
