Last Saturday, after the IFF in Patrick's dormitory, I went to do some shopping alone. Well, I only got a few thousands yen in my wallet, no credit card nor bank card with me that time. By the time I bought a white T-shirt, 2 CDs... I only left 1000yen. -_-"
However, the good thing was, with this very limited money left, I controlled my craving for over-shopping, which is a symptom that I will have when I am in a depressed situation with my work.
I was hunger for a good sakuranbo (Japanese cherry). So I went to Takashimaya to look for one.
Among the choices, I chosed this 2nd cheapest one. It was 699yen per pack. This is the Satonishiki (佐藤錦）species, the King of the Sakuranbo. The one from Yamagata prefecture is especially famous.
Well, this pack is a 2nd class Satonishiki, however it is still much better than a normal Japanese cherry.
As you can see here, the colour is bright red if compared to a Bing Cherry which is a deep reddish-purple. In Japan, Bing Cherry is commonly known as "American Cherry".
Well, I tried to divide the portion into 4 times, so that I could enjoy 4 days of cherrish days with my sakuranbo. ^_^
The Satonishiki was much smaller that a Bing Cherry. However, the flesh is softer and sweeter. I had a 1st class Sakurando before, it was like 8000yen per kg. Well, it was given by someone to my lab. It was one of the best fruit I have ever tasted. Full red, not a single sourness, soft and juicy flesh. It melted me.
As for this version that I bought, it had a slight sourness... but made a good balance with the sweetness.
While listening to my music... with the evening wind blowing through my room... one by one the cherry went slowly into my mouth. It was a time I felt so happiness. Couldn't help but grinned to myself everytime the cherry touched my lips.
How was my mood after that??
Ah~~~ like this picture.
