このブロッグが大好き!

Today, I thought I would give a couple of shout outs to some blogs by my friends that I have been enjoying recently.

 

Macenachan ~ Notebooks and Cookbooks

My dear friend Macena is an avid foodie, a bookworm and is, like me, interested in Japanese culture. Her blog is a charming insight into her life, from exploring her reading lists through to her yearly collection of her Ramadan Diaries – she writes engagingly and it is a fascinating insight into her daily life. Macena is a talented writer, so I thoroughly enjoy reading about her life in her gentle yet humorous tone.

 

Healthy Fighto! (ヘルシーファイト!)

Maryann, my lovely neighbour and fellow ALT friend here in Japan has started a blog to record her progress in her personal fight to achieve a healthy lifestyle! Maryann has been a great influence upon me this year, encouraging me to join her in jogging and other energetic activities – so I am really excited to see her progress as well as learn a few more hints and tips for healthy eating (because this girl can cook, btw!).

You can also see some of Maryann’s work where she has joined me and Su in our weekly art project, With Two Sugars, Please!

Bear in mind – before this year, I had NEVER ran before. Unless it was away from something. So running for fun wasn’t ever an idea for me.. yet we persevered and I was indeed able to run a marathon for the first time!
