The Hina Matsuri or Doll Festival or Girl's Festival is celebrated on March 3. On this day, families with girls wish their daughters a successful and happy life. Dolls are displayed in the house together with peach blossoms. The doll festival has its origin in a Chinese custom in which bad fortune is transferred to dolls and then removed by abandoning the doll on a river. On Hina Matsuri, sweet sake is drunken and chirashi sushi is eaten. (Source)
I really really wanted to have this set of dolls. But that thing is very expensive! And how on earth am I going to bring it back to my lupang hinirang? Baka mas mahal pa ang magastos ko sa pagpapadala compared to the price of the commodity itself. But seriously I really want them.
Anyway I didn't know that today is hinamatsuri until I received some goodies from Hayakawa-san. Last year she gave us ladies some hello kitty munchies.
And that's when I realized the logo of Google today. Toinks! Parang wala ako sa Japan hehe
