Cupcake Café 18th Street, NYC

I am a cupcake lover. 
These  blossom cupcakes are really good and different from Magnolia's cupcakes.
The taste is not so sweet but simply little creamy....
I can have more than 10 of them easily at once...
The decoration is very sweet lovely floral....

Iwaso Ryokan, Miyajima, Japan

The Magic of Miyajima

It was like love at first sight for me...

This island is truly serene, magical and...simply beautiful...

I felt like I was in Japan 100 years ago..
I took the ferry from Hiroshima to Miyajima(only 20minutes boat ride).
Miyajima is well-known as a sacred island wherein people and gods dwell together harmoniously...
I stayed at Iwaso Ryokan, where I experienced Japanese lifestyle and culture...
The food was great...
The service was amazing...I felt like a princess!
It is close to everywhere...

In front of Iwaso Ryokan...very nice view of maple trees in red, orange and yellow...

Itsukushima Shrine - not on water! There is low and high tide different in each time of a day. How cool?
