Sanbongi Himawari...

Our search for Mr. Sunshine..or should i say..Miss flowers' search for yet another flower?..thanks my love for bringing me to the matsuri...you know that it meant a lot to me...saya mencari sinaran sang mentari...dalam kehijauan..i didn't know about himawari (sunflower) plantation until Norai mentioned about it. Our search started on a few days before my birthday..around the weekend. Norai have been there twice..and i really knew nothing about this place..few days before the searching..it seems sunny days..and it is expected for the himawari to blooms beautifully. With luck upon us we went there..the journey took about 50 minutes...we cant avoid the traffic..if it went smooth i guess it will be around 40 minutes or less..we passed by Izumi town and it is on the way to Naruko..(do you still remember my seminar there?)...norai pun ingat2 lupa..and then we saw a big singboard written himawari in hiragana. I clasped.."love..kat sini love.." he turned left..we went to a very narrow road. Only one car can pass by..but the search turned out to be sad because there was only greens and no sunshine..we saw one part ada himawari bur when we tried to go further there's one makcik showed her hand in crossed (X).."dame".."dame"..takleh enter la tu..so we went back..hantar norai and we went to lab..buat keje sket..
cubaan pertama..yang agak kachiwa..

Deep down inside miss flower knew that it might be hard to invite love again to that place..yerla nanti pergi2 tak ada..sort of wasting our time and also wasting the fuel...2 weeks have passed..i didn't give up..i invited norai along..but she has some errand to do...brave my self up..and told love.."Love..nak g tgk himawari weekend ni, boleh tak?" mata terkebil2 kesian..hehe tak la tipu jer tu over plak..my love knows his wife really well..he just kept quiet..and i waited in heartbeat.."Boleh...but must make sure mr sunshine tu ada..nanti pergi macam baru ni..hijau je..rasanya tak berbunga lagi dlm 2 minggu ni." my instinct says that it already blooms..instinct apa tu? instinct kebunga-bungaan? "Ala love..2 minggu ni mesti dah berbunga..i'll drive to that place ok?" and then love replied.."Ok..tapi kalau tak ada..no more dah lepas ni..tak boleh pergi dah..tunggu next year.."gulp..but i'm happy..i know there is hope..last sunday our mission starts at 10.00 am..the earlier the better..tapi sekarang subuh still awal around 3 am to 4.30 am..so bila tido balik liatnya nak bangun..hu..

While driving i kept wishing please blooms..or else i might not have the chance...sampai je dekat singboard tu..i saw..himawari matsuri August 1-16. I nearly scream,.yes!..on the right time babe! maybe the flowers tak blooms fully but there will be mr. sunshine..totally different from last week, banyak kereta..siap ada orang jaga parking..nasib baik murah jer nak masuk..200 yen. parked our car..and off we go..yeyy...i was in total joy..cant wait to see the field full with himawari. Hold love's hand tightly and said..i love you...i'm happyyyy...maka sesi photoshoot pun bermula..with our not so dslr camera hehe..sian my cammy ni asik kena perli jek..guwau ajaa..kali ni ada stall jual makanan..ada bench untuk menikmati pemandangan himawari...and of course there were a lot of people..
as expected..only one part filled with himawari..but it was totally awesome!!!
the transitions...kunun macam tunggu himawari blooms..padahal semua tu photos of different himawari..hehe..
miss flower with sunflower..in front of the field..up close and personal with himawari...view from the other side..menyelit jap between the plants..
with my love...
silau sket...
the other side..not fully bloom
miss flower got one himawari from her love..yeyyy..tq love...it cost 100 yen way cheaper than flower shop..and the size of the flower is bigger too..posing next to a shop which sells himawari products
harganya boleh tahan..of course we choose the cheapest one..himawari cookies and himawari ice-cream..yummyy..

Malam tu i tried to make cheese cake..dah lama beli bahan tapi disebabkan tak cukup perkakas it was postponed..nasib baik all the ingredients belum expired..but sadly, amount tak cukup (tak ikut resipi) and bekas pulak besar..it was meant for 18 cm but i had 20 cm tu yang nipis sket...not bad for the first attempt..and my love's love it..boleh buat lagi...hehe..
chiizu keki (cheese cake) dah makan 1 portion baru nak amek gambar...
The himawari masih kembang mekar..until today..of course we sprayed it with water twice a day..the picture was taken this morning...
i never knew it can last quite long..ganbatte himawari..we will keep on spraying...hehe...
