Last Friday Sakurako and I went on yet another adventure of our own. The international students and their tutors planned to hold an International Dinner Party and the participants were expected to bring food to serve for the others as well. I hadn't seen Sakurako for a week and was so glad to see her again.
To contribute to the party, we decided to make Onigiri (Japanese Rice Balls) and Dashimaki Tamago (Japanese Omelette) -- well, more she than I. Sakurako taught me how to make Onigiri by myself. I feel like I've done this before but I can't remember. It was more difficult than it looks and all those girls in shoujo manga totally have my sympathy now. We used plastic films to make it easier to turn them into balls. Plus, they sure make awesome packaging. Sakurako went on to make Dashimaki Tamago while I just watched because I couldn't. This was the time I had the chance to eat somewhat fresh salmon skins after so long. Yum!
