CUTE YUMMY TIME BOOK SIGNING IN WASHINGTON DC! PHILLY METRO ARTICLE, LOLITA PHOTO SHOOT IN JAPANESE PARK.

Time for one of those méli-mélo posts. Moriawase, if you you prefer Nihongo. A random assortment of odds and ends, which often ends up being more exciting than something planned and straightforward!

Here are some pro photos taken by Mitchell Fielding Warner last month. We were shooting a TV show demo in a Japanese park. You can see more photos and full info about my outfit in this post.

I love my job, I love my job, I love my job. Although I’m currently on my book tour, I can write for CNNGo from anywhere in the world — and about the Asian pop culture kitsch that I adore! Here are the latest two articles. I’d love to hear what you think.

Overlooked Asian airport ‘attractions’ — Asia has the most passenger-friendly airports in the world. From koi ponds to robot helpers, these attractions prove it

    cute tofu! ^-^
    & great job on the articles *thumbs up*
    That would be neat if one of the airports around here had things like that, like the koi fish pond. it would be so pretty & so relaxing for people awaiting their flights.

    The paper is “Metro” (Weekend-Oct 23-25 2009), and its on page 18,Metro Food
    Headline is “Its As Cute As A Button Mushroom”/In her new cookbook,La Carmina shows you how to whip up adorable food.
    What a pleasant surprise.
