Pudding in a Bucket!

Can you imagine my joy when I was wondering the aisles of my local Don Quixote shop, admittedly after a few drinks, and I came across the bucket pudding! How many are you going to attempt?

Animal Cafes

Surprisingly, animal cafes, or the concept of a café or restaurant where you dine with a feathered or furry friend, isn’t originally from Japan but Taiwan.
