My birthday in Tokyo
Following the New Year celebration was my birthday, and although I always like to keep it simple and low-key, I enjoy thoughtful and fun activities. This time we went to the aquarium for some penguin and colourful fish sightings, then on to a traditional Japanese restaurant in Ginza where I feasted on the most delectable vegetarian fare, ending the evening with my favourite Japanese sweet, ichigo daifuku. No birthday is complete without cake, and my lovely friends surprised me with the cutest cakes, complete with candles and everything. I felt very spoiled and lucky this year.
