Matcha Fever!

23 Aug

In last blog post, Yuki mentioned “Matcha Kitkat”. We both are in love with Matcha (Green Tea) Flavor. We can buy many Japanese stuff here in London. But unfortunately Matcha is not really one of them…

Matcha is very addictive. If you had once before, you know how addictive it is! So I am always thinking about Matcha flavor. Then I decided to buy Matcha powder last time I went back to Japan. (Yuki even bought more of it when she went back!) Once you have it, you can make everything Matcha flavor. Matcha latte, Matcha icecream, Matcha chocolate, Matcha bread!

Last week, I had some spare time. I was a bit bored… Then ta-da!

I baked Matcha Cockies! It looks quite greeny, isn’t it? I followed the recipe very carefully, but somehow it was too much green tea taste in it… But I loved it.
Anyways, here is a recipe of Matcha Cookie I bakes.

*Matcha (Green Tea)  Soft Cookies*

Margarine (or Butter)     50g (Room Temperature preferably)
Granulated Suger              50g
Honey                                    15g
Flour                                      100g
Matcha Powder*               10g (if you want that greeny as I baked, put less)
Baking Powder                   1/2 tea spoon
Chocolate Chips                 50g (or as much as you want)
*You can buy at oriental super market
1. Whisk the butter in a bawl. If it is not warm as room temperature, just microwave it for about 10 seconds (if 700w)
2. Microwave honey and suger for 10 seconds to make it smoother. Add in the bawl with the butter. Stir well.
3. Add the flour, the matcha powder and the baking powder. Stir well until you can’t see powder anymore and  it gets dough texture.
4. Preheat oven 150 degrees C. Then get baking sheet ready on a tray.
5. Make golf ball sized dough balls and add chocolate chips. Flatten balls in 1cm(2/5 inch) thick.

6. Bake for about 10 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for at least 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely hence it is quite soft when it is done.

This surely tastes different from cookies normally eaten outside of Japan. I love eating Matcha flavored sweets with a cup (or more) of green tea. Fancy cuppa with Japanese style??

And benefit from eating/drinking green tea? According to news today, it may cure (skin) cancer. At least three cups of tea a day as Huff post tells… What a piece of cake!

eBay Photo Improvement!

8 Jul

Quite often, we have got questions from customers asking how big stickers or cards are. When you try to buy something online, whatever it is, size does matter. I’ve been thinking we should have measurements on eBay listings.

Now all stocks are in my hands. So using rainy Sunday, I have been working on taking new photos of our products. Here is one of the photos I took earlier today.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I mistakenly did wrong setting on my camera… So it looks a bit like instagram…So I’ll have to try to make it more like “product photo”. But I think it is very convenient for customers. Hope I can upload all the photos before Yuki comes back.

By the way, I am currently using Fuji X100. It is really a cool camera. When I left my former company, I bought this for myself as a farewell gift. I didn’t know anything about photography. I just liked the design of this camera. I just fell in love right away when I saw this. It was not cheap. But now I am really loving using this camera.

Fortunately, some of my friends taught me how to take photos and use this camera. So all the photos on eBay were taken by this camera.

If you have any query or request about our products, service, etc… please don’t hesitate to drop us a line. We are happy to help then improve our service!

Happy Canada Day!

1 Jul

Happy Canada Day to Canadian customers!

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is Canada Day. I am not Canadian. But we’ve got Canadian customers occasionally. So I would like to cerebrate Canadian National Holiday a bit! It is going to be Independence Day in America, too! Canadian and American customers! We ship to North America!

By the way, This is first time for me, Akane, writing this blog. Now Yuki is in Japan. So I am in charge of her rolls while she is having a blast summer holiday in Japan! (Jealous??)  I would like to write something funny, but nothing came up to my mind so far… So I used Canadian Holiday for an excuse… 😛

I am usually working on Merchandising side of mocomoco tokyo using my former experience as a Stationery Buyer in Japan.  Also taking pictures of products, making logos and so on…

Now I am very happy that I can have opportunities to do some customer service which Yuki is always doing. New things, new experience!

It is Sunday evening in London. I am now going down to a local pub to watch Euro 2012 match. I am not a big fun of football. But I like lively genki (“cheerful” in Japanese) atmosphere! How do you spend a nice Sunday evening??

Little accessories for your books

16 Apr

Hi there! How are you all doing?

I’m back on mocomoco tokyo wordpress blog now!! Sorry that I have not posted for a while.

To apologise, I am going to show you my pretty sticky bookmarks!!


They are just so adorable…!!! It seems to be a bit difficult for you to imagine how they work so that I thought showing a picture of them in use might help?
All our sticky note, bookmarks are used like this. Just like post-it but way more pretty. I am sure everyone can agree with that!

My favourite at the moment is them in the photo. You can get a dog, polar bear, bird and cat all in one!!
They are not only cute but also very practical right? I think they are a must have!! The package is quite small and you can just pop it in your pen case.

By the way the event at the Easter weekend was great!! It was such fun to meet all the kids and mums there. Our dress up stickers were so pupolar with not only girls but also boys!!
We had some samples for anyone to play with and many kids just couldn’t go anywhere else. Next day a mum came back to our eBay shop and bought more because her daughter loved it.

We would love to find more opportunity to do this definitely!
Thank you for reading and have a lovely afternoon!!

See you soon! x
