Watermelon & Cookie Cutters

 A perfect summer snack, Watermelon. Today I thought I would try cutting watermelon with the cookie cutters and make it cute. My watermelon was a bit soft so it was difficult but I still had fun cutting out a few shapes. I would suggest trying it if strong enough watermelon because then it is fairly simple.


You Will Need:

Cookie cutters



I picked some smaller cookie cutters because my watermelon is so watery so it would fall apart with bigger cutters.
All you do is cut your watermelon anyway you feel will be easiest to have a somewhat smooth surface to work with. I just cut some 1/4 th slices. Then you use your cookie cutters!

That is about all, you can even just make a few and add it to your meal making it look cute and exciting. I cut one for my lunch to spoil myself with a cuter dish. 

 Later turned the other half of the watermelon into a bowl. Then cut some regular bite size squares of watermelon, put them in the watermelon bowl and then my cute cut watermelons on the top. It looks nice and it wasn't too terribly hard.

I also gave some to my puppy Kou

Thank you for reading! Have a good Summer!

Aloha Yokohama (7/28/2013)

Yesterday My Husband and I went to an event called Aloha Yokohama! 
To be honest I think this event would have been better outdoors but still I enjoyed yesterday a lot. We decided to walk since it was lovely weather outside.
first we decided to take purikura with kou! because he is so cute and is only a puppy once ><

I love this machine >< its always so cute!
Ferris wheel from cosmos world ><

After taking purikura we went to world porters and we found a Mix Berry there! I was so surprised it brought back memories so we decided to buy some. we tried mango apple, ramline, watermelon, melon, and grape. My favorite was watermelon. My husband and I shared an ice cream so the end result looked a bit funny because we have different preference but it was still fun and tasty.

before toppings (:

our icecream!

 then we went to yamashita park to lay out a mat and relax with kou. I ended up buying a cola and Kou was licking the bottle. He does the cutest things haha. I really can not stop taking pictures of him.

a selfie ^^

then we decided to head towards the aloha Yokohama event. on the way we saw a bike tricks kind of event.. I am unsure what you would call it but it was fun to see. My husband took video

walking to aloha yokohama with kou!

At last we arrived at Aloha yokohama

a Hawaiian beer sample ~ (very strong taste, I am not all that fond of achohol though)

I wanted to eat at the event but all the food was sold out! I had a craving for something at least remotely hawaiian even hamburgers would do so we went to freshness burger. On the way we saw this guy with a carriage lead by a pony.

our hamburgers, to be honest for `fastfood` its pretty good (;
Then we needed to buy new food for kou so we went buy the petshop we bought him at and I saw this monkey sort of animal for sale! for 380,000 Yen! (about 3,800 usd) he was cute and fun to look at though.

 On another note I won the pastel panda I posted about a few posts ago a week after

Anyways that is all for now! I hope you enjoyed!
Have a good day!
