Getting to know Kizuna

Hi, I'm Clarissa, you can call me Clang for short! I enjoy good coffee, taking pictures, cooking and spending time with my family.
I guess you're wondering why I named my blog Kizuna that sometimes Kizuna is mistakenly read as Kusina. Kizuna is my favorite japanese word ( 絆 ) , a very strong japanese word for me--- it means ties and bonding. I blog about my family bondings because they're my passion and that my life with them is busy, lively and most of the time FUN!

Kizuna is my outlet and you' ll find here my kids milestones, my life in Japan, my homemade bentou ( lunch boxes), some of my recipes, our family bonding, our family adventures, places, foods and culture in Japan and some memes. Kizuna is also created to keep in touch with families and friends who live all over the world and even we live far apart, we'd love to be friends as if we see each other everyday.

If you have the time, you can browse for some of the archives here and hoping you'll enjoy my journey here in Japan. All contents of these page ( text, photos )are property of the author and may not be used without permission.

I love blogging and visiting other blogs but most of the time I don't always respond to comments as much but I do try by returning the visits back the soonest to your site and answer them there. There's just no enough time in a day for sometimes!

I'd love to hear from you so please feel free of dropping me a line or two at clarissa_candido[AT]yahoo[DOT]com

Thank you and I really appreciate your precious time of dropping by here! God bless!
