2011 was an eventful year. It started off with such promise, but I must say that I fell short on almost every resolution I set out to achieve. Well, maybe it wasn't that I fell short. Maybe I just tried to do too much on my own. Or maybe it was just...well...you know...okay maybe not.
All I know is that I won't ever be discouraged. Someday might not be good enough for some of you, but I still believe I can someday finish everything I started.

So what does all this mean for 2012? Being that my visa expires in November, my 2012 resolution will be to work even harder. In life AND in work. There will be no stopping me. All I ask is that you keep believing. Believing in dreams, believing in love, and believing in life. I have no regrets so far and that's how I'd like to keep it.
Anyway, being the first day of the year there isn't really much open. But after making a few calls, Tsukemen Usagi-chan (つけめん うさぎちゃん) in Nakano was perhaps still holding on to the year of the rabbit.
This shop is run mostly by young ladies and has been gaining a considerable amount of publicity in recent months. The shop is very cute, but I must admit that seeing all this pink was a little strange and uncomfortable.
I ordered the Usagi-chan Tsukemen, but before it came out I was given some fresh squeezed carrot juice. Do rabbits drink carrot juice?
Usagi-chan is an interesting new concept, but I wasn't really feeling their tsukemen.
I did like the pasta-like noodles, but everything else lacked impact. In fact, I seem to have already erased it from my mind.
2012 is definitely shaping up to be an interesting year...
