Golden Week Episode---Sansai Matsuri


It is a tradition at my MIL's ramen shop to held a Sansai Matsuri ( sansai means Japanese wild vegetables and if you don't have any idea of it, you must go back here for my Food Trip Friday entry) during Golden Week ( longest holiday here in Japan ) and just like of last year we went to their place to help and not only us, my Sister and Brother-In-Law are also present. We had our tent set and displayed all sorts of fresh, wild sansai goodies from nature and was packed and ready for selling. Some are tempura-ed and given to costumers who ordered at the omice ( shop ) as service and some are for free tasting. It's a great feeling to see costumers with a smile on their faces! As usual and as expected, tiring but F-U-N!!
Sansai is a seasonal wild vegetables found at the mountainside( that's our bukid of tralala ) and that's why some city folks come over yearly to buy sansai at my MIL's omice. The Sansai Matsuri lasted for 5 days but we helped for 3 days coz we also have to treat the kids since it's a holiday. You can also read our Golden Week Episodes here. ---Kabu, Japanese turnip---
---Kabocha Manju, a Japanese steamed cake ( pumpkin dough ) with anko ( red bean paste ) filling---
---Fresh and large asparagus, from my Great Granny's backyard---

HI ate.. Hisashiburi.. gosh nakaka-inggit naman kayo. Sa pictures pa lang, super happy happy kayo. Swerte din nina Wakaba and Haruka Chan kasi ang dami nila na-eexperience. Gusto ko din ma-experience ang mamuhay sa inaka, peaceful at masasaya ang mga people. Lalo na si Hide, gusto nya talaga tumira sa inaka in the future. Ang bait ng inlaws mo, lalo na ang MIL mo. I really really hope na mapasyalan namin kayo. Im sure mangyayari yun, lapit lang ng sa inyo kung tutuusin.

No wonder, mga baby face kayo kasi ang healthy ng mga kinakain nyo. Fresh pa.. urayamashii me..
