    Hi Yuka, I love reading your posts, but I noticed that you have been missing in action for a while now. It would be great to see you write again and share them with us. Hope you are well and would be back soon! 🙂

      Thank you so much for your kind words. I had a sabbatical from blogging (since I met my 2015 goal to write 365 posts for the year). I shall dust off my laptop soon.
