Cavalock and The Return to Osaka

Crazy cool Haagen-Dazs flavours can only mean one thing on this blog. Yup, I was back in Japan or Osaka to be exact. Decided to take a break from Tokyo this year on account of their sky-high summer hotel rates. The last time I was in Osaka was almost a decade ago back in Christmas 2007. Well, you still have to dodge bicycles along every pavement. Like Tokyo, you now hear Mandarin at almost every street corner and shop. But in Osaka. it's a summer invasion of tourists from Taiwan and Hong Kong instead of mainland China. For that, I'm grateful if you know what I mean.

Like I said, it's the start of summer in Japan and the weather's cool and breezy. A little rain on a couple of days but still nice to be outdoors. Not too cold to enjoy the mango ice-cream. Exactly how you expect it to taste, strong mango flavour. If you can also imagine honey drizzled on milk or vanilla ice-cream, that kinda describes the honey and milk flavour below. And of cos, I like them both. Hah!

Don't squint. Lavander & blueberry, honey & milk, rare cheesecake, caramel truffle, alfonso mango & cream, strawberry banana. Just some of flavours you won't find back home.

And now this. I have a lot of different kinds of capsule toys in my days. But this has gotta be one of the weirdest ever. Car wrecks? Junkyard cars?
