CATH KIDSTON...FOOD...SHOPPING..WHAT MORE COULD A GIRL WANT???!!











OKAY OKAY!!  IT IS JUST ON 10.00 PM IN JAPAN...MIDNIGHT IN THE LAND OF OZ...BUT JUST HAD TO DO A BLOG ABOUT MY DAYS ACTIVITIES IN JAPAN..

MY SON AND I CAUGHT THE BULLET TRAIN FROM OSAKA TO NAGOYA..WHICH TOOK ABOUT 45 MINUTES...TRAVELLING AT ABOUT 300 KMS PER HOUR!!  SUPRSINGLY THOUGH .. IT IS A VERY SMOOTH RIDE AND ONE DOESNT FEEL LIKE THEY ARE TRAVELLING AT SUCH A HIGH SPEED...THANK GOODNESS!!

UPON ARRIVAL..CHECKED IN AT THE WESTIN HOTEL...AND STRAIGHT OFF TO THE SHOPPING CENTRE TO VISIT CATH KIDSTON'S STORE!!

I HATE TO SAY I DID SPEND A LITTLE BIT OF MONEY...COUGH COUGH!!  BUT I DONT HAVE REALLY MUCH TO SHOW FOR IT...BUT OH WELL!!  C'EST LA VIE...I BOUGHT WHAT I REALLY LIKED/WANTED...SO THAT IS MY EXCUSE...

MY SON & I HAVE JUST HAD THE MOST WONDERFUL & DELICIOUS TEPINYAKI DINNER AT A RESTAURANT IN THE HOTEL HERE IN NAGOYA...
INCLUDED ARE SOME OF THE PHOTOS OF THE DINNER WE WERE HAVING...MY STEAK IS THE LITTLE ONE....MY SONS IS THAT BIG BIG PIECE OF STEAK!!  GROWING BOY!!

THE ARTISTRY OF THE CHEF IS A DELIGHT TO WATCH.....HIS KNIFE MUST BE THE SHARPEST EVER...AND THE FLAME WHICH APPEARED AT ONE STAGE IN THE COOKING PROCESS NEARLY SINGED MY FRINGE!!

THE VIEW FROM THE RESTAURANT WAS SUPERB...OVERLOOKING NAGOYA CITY...AS WELL AS THE BEAUTIFUL NAGOYA CASTLE..

WE ARE LOOKING AT THIS CASTLE DIRECTLY FROM OUR BEDROOM WINDOW...WE ARE GOING TO CHECK IT OUT TOMORROW...

IT IS AMAZING TO SEE ... FIRST HAND...SUCH A TRADITIONAL JAPANESE CASTLE...CANNOT WAIT TO SEE INSIDE TOMORROW...

SO I HAVE JUST DONE ANOTHER LITTLE BLOG WITH PHOTOS OF CATH KIDSTONS STORE...SOME OF THE GOODIES I PURCHASED...THE RESTAURANT/CHEF/FOOD WE HAD FOR DINNER...AND THE CASTLE...

OFF FOR A GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP...HAVENT WALKED SOOO MUCH IN AGES!!
