  1. I won't be able to go, but ... your reference to ochazuke has just made me decide that's what I'm going to have for dinner! Plus lots of autumn fruit. ^^

    1. Thanks Rurousha, Yeah, its a bit far from Tokyo for you. Ochazuke is great and we often have it towards the end of our meal :)

    1. Thanks Lina, Not sure about that! Just done my research and turns out that Boh Cameronian tea is the most famous tea in Malaysia. It could be represented :)
