Christmas came to me

Wow, it's Christmas !
What did you do at Christmas Eve ?
In European country, all family gather and exchange gifts, Christmas is possibly very important feast for family.
In our country, Christmas is for lover or friends. We don't pass Christmas eve with our family. We go out and meet friends or lover ^^
How about me ? I had a nice dinner with my freinds, we talked each other without knowing that the closing time of restaurant was being approached. It was very pleasant time for me to see them because I was so busy since 1 month ago. I didn't dare seeing them after working or at weekends.
Due to much stress and heavy work, I was exhausted, and I had to take a rest.
After passing good time with my friends, I ran to cathedral to say christmas special Mass with my parents. Cathedral prepared a special korean rice cake made of bean and pumpkin for us.
Regrettably, it didn't snow.

Although I wanted to make a special Christmas cake for me and my family, I had no enough time so I bought a chocolate rapsberry cake at patisserie near to my appartment. It was very yummy and nice.

Indulged in an idle fancy before christmas Eve

Today, it's very cold.
As I'm very sensitive to cold, I don't like winter. So, today, I'm not happy. I have to wear a few clothes one over another. Gloves and boots are necessities during winter time.
My office is not quite warm. Its building superindentent seems to me stingy.
Whenever I get to work, I don't take off my coat because my office is not enoughly heated.
It's heating until A.M 10, so I have to divert my mind in taking a hot coffee or hot chocolate.
I love hot chocolate, especially on which almonds or cinnamon powder sprinkle.
Cinnamon powder add savory flavor to hot chocolate. Baked almonds are very nice.
Christmas day coming day by day to us, my heart grow restless. I made up a special plan with my girl friend. We'll have a wonderful time on the hightest street. We'll find a romantic restaurant with a special menu, and have a ramble on this street. Of course, it will be decorated with neon light and christmas trees. We'll take pictures to keep good memory.

Hello, chocopie

Finally, I made my own blog.
As I have blog fans related to food, my blog will be dedicated to food.
Among food, I adore chocolate. So my blog name is chocopie, which means pie made of chocolate.
As I likd it too much, my friends nicknamed me "chocopie"
Even if I don't speak fluent English, I'll try to render my thinking about food, and my cuisinery life into English.
Of course, I'll be able to make friends with people from various countries.
I'll introduce our tradition, cuisine, culture through this blog.
I'm very pleased to have my blog.
