mugs and other obsessions

not too long ago my mom came back from a European cruise with Finland, Sweden, and Norway on her list of stops (jealous right? haha).  and since i love everything Moomin, i asked her to look for some things for me there since they originated from Scandinavia.  i was really hoping she'd find that black Moominpapa mug for me, but to no avail (even though she got me a whole ton of other great Moomin gifts also!)  but now i realized that i can just buy them online! hahah

the mugs also reminded me of coffee, and how it's recently become one of my current new obsessions... i went from hardly ever drinking coffee (and when i did, it needed sugar and creme), and now i can drink it almost everyday, black - with little or no syrup at all.  (you all might think this is silly and childish, since the whole world already drinks coffee everyday. hahah)

but amongst coffee, my other recent obsessions are natto and yoga.  :-)

what are you currently obsessed with at the moment?

Ugh.. Finland & Norway >,< did she visit カモメ食堂? Which cup finally did you get? Would love to have the snufkin one! Hopefully to become as zen as him, haha.

Secretly, I always have obsession for tableware, from plates, mugs, bowl, everything! Also washi tapes! Here's what i got recently,

I hardly drink black coffee (unless i've no choice), always prefer to have some cream or sugar. Not interested to become a barista, Aron?

ps: sorry for this one long comment, haha, been a while, hisashiburi~

nothing childish about it at all! coffee is not for everyone :) i normally have coffee once a day, my coffee is cappuccino with skim milk, no sugar. but i'm trying to cut it down and have coffee like twice a week or something and start drinking tea, just a choice to be smarter with the money i spend..

my current obsessions: striped tops!

Those are some good obsessions.
My current obsession, Abocado and white rice with soy.

The mugs are so cute, the third one killed me.

How cute these are! I like especially papa's one too:)

I've been obsessed by green tea recently.
It's better than coffee for me...

Haha, I saw these yesterday on another site! So lovely! I collect pretty mugs, so these are definitely on my wish list. =)
Which one(s) did you buy?

I can't drink coffee- way too strong/bitter for me; even when I add loads of milk and sugar, lol!! ^^

Beverage-wise, I'm obsessed with tea. I like the taste and...it's one of my "comfort" things. =)

Super jealous of your お母さん!
What beautiful places to visit.
I would especially want to visit Finland (because of Moomin World!!)
Moomin items can be hard to come by. But of course, Moomin gifts are plenty available online!(thank goodness)
I do like that Snufkin mug!
But to pick one, that would be too difficult.
ええ、なっとが好きですか?I've heard about it, but I have not had the chance to try it yet.
ヨガはいいね!It's so relaxing.
あれ, you can drink coffee black?
アロンくんカッコイ!あまいコーヒが好きです。
Hmmm, I can't think of anything that I am currently obsessed with...
私はつまらないね!
