We had an official UTRIP reception some time ago - it was basically a fancy buffet dinner, where the dean, the sponsors and the staff at the ILO office had speeches and we introduced ourselves to them. The food was amazing, I especially appreciated the fruits and vegetables, because those are really expensive in Tokyo. If you're lucky, you might find a couple of cheaper things here and there, but it's nowhere near the tomatoes for 200 Yen/kg we have in the Czech Republic.
Here's a random dinner we had - tofu, salad, octopus with peppers in sour sauce.
And a random breakfast - in Maruetsu Petit, they have bread and other bakery-ish things for half price after 21-something, so we often get sweet cakes for breakfast. We got some pickled fruits in hanamasa in Iidabashi (yes, there's one fairly close to the hotel) and bought some bean pudding.
Ehm, a random outfit - Todai campus is really busy, so taking outfit pictures was so embarrassing I decided not to do it again. >.<
Another dinner - chicken with peppers, pickled cucumbers and mushrooms.
A not-so-pretty tamagoyaki (it was harder with a round pan than I expected), buns with sweet bean filling and pickled mikan.
One of my fave outfits - I layered a top over a dress and used a hair clip as a bow on the neckline.
My roommate getting ready behind me. =D
At 100 Yen stores, there are super nice nail decals. I got these in the Daiso in Iidabashi.
Sweet corn soup (which I love), buns, fruits, dango - one of our breakfasts.
My outfit for the reception. BTW, we were required to wear our name tags. So I thought I'd be smart and leave it in the office of my lab so that I can't forget it at home. Right, the only problem was that when I arrived at the classroom where we have afternoon seminars, I realized I left it at the office. Well, I run back, got my tag and only when I got back to the classroom, I realized I left my make-up bag in the office. orz
View from the place where the dinner took place - it was the top floor of a hospital O_o.
