ah, back to work. it's not even christmas and already i am in debt up to my ears (and wondering about buying another camera--anyone have any opinions about panasonic DMC-FZ20? anyone? anyone?), so hi ho (no--not you), hiho, it's off to work i go. since it is oyster season in japan, it must be oyster season on guam :-) yay! oyster bento on offer for the next few weeks! this one is obviously panko-breaded and fried, and served with a tonkatsu sauce. juicy and delish.
