Japanese Money Envelope – Kinpu

Hello everyone!  So today I stumbled upon this blog post: How To Make a Japanese Money Envelope.  It was so reminiscent of my times in Japan.  (One reason how I came up with Envylope App). Japanese people are really into culture and aesthetics.

In their culture – money envelopes (kinpu) as a form of gift giving is predominant.  They give money to one another for new births, marriages, new houses, funerals even they “pay” money to tutors in a “money-envelope” as it is considered to be more polite.  The envelope they choose for the various occasion is different too.  Each type of envelope has a different symbolic characteristic.  I honestly love their culture – it’s just so interesting.  I miss JAPAN!

This made me think that I absolutely must get a translation of Envylope App  in the Japan App Store ASAP!  🙂

And in my spare time, I can learn how to make a Japanese Money Envelope too! hehehe

Hope everyones been wonderful. Here’s a link to Asian Cultures that use Envelopes as gift giving – written by me 😉 .

Any tips/comments on the Japan App Market is welcomed!

Chinese Style Glazed Ginger Brussel Sprouts Stir Fry

Hello everyone!  So yes I have been up to cooking – but its been pretty busy with Envylope so I’ve not been posting much.  But I must.  I must.  Just simply because I really do enjoy blogging!

So I wanted something easy, quick and healthy as a stir fry to have with Tofu Hoisin Steaks (the easiest Tofu dish you can ever whip up).

And a close up of the greens…  The texture was just right and so was the sauce!

It was yum!  Being Vegetarian you have to try to like all kinds of vegetables otherwise it’s pretty limited!

Hello bloggers!  Hope everyone’s enjoying their weekend so far.  Just thought it would be terribly unfair to not let you guys know of my App on half-price today.  How can it just be on discount for strangers and not my readers?  NOT FAIR.  So if anyone’s interested and hasn’t downloaded it yet – Envylope is just 69P today (until Midnight London Time!)
