Monster Face 12


I have been eating a lot of  Japanese food out during lunch times at work at this very nice local Japanese place in Richmond called the Happy Kappa.  Though, I think from hereon to save my pennies, i may only eat there once a week or every other week now.  Good cheap food though which I quite enjoy and it's nice being out of the studio every now and then.

Anyhoo, this monster face is close to a Japanese demon (an oni) which I am sure is similar to something I've seen before.  I really want to go to Japan.  If I was to die this minute, my biggest regret is not enjoying some time in Japan.  I miss learning Japanese and I do wish I had the time to just squeeze everything I want to do in life in.  I want to know and learn more about Japanese culture and they're definitely my favourite cuisine hands down.  We used to go to this great Japanese place every Sunday with the family called Shiroi Hana.  I loved that place and I always found it something to look forward to.  

I  am hoping to travel after this current contract ends and have enough cash to do that and survive again as a freelancer once I get back.  We shall see how things pan out though.  Two years is a long time to plan anything in advance and you never know what spanner in the works or other opportunities could be thrown in!  Japan and more of Europe is on my list.  If I could travel for 6 months....my goodness, that would be amazing.  Hoping to have company with me on my adventures too along the way....experiences are good to share with someone..so you can look back at the memories together.
