All You Can Do Now is Wait and Hope You Didn’t Make any Mistakes…

Just a quick post on something I forgot to mention.

The morning of the day I went out to see Nagasaki with Niisan, I spent about 2 hours making Ohagi with Okaasan.  Apparently, in September, there’s a day when you’re supposed to honor your ancestors with gifts, one of the traditional ones is Ohagi.  Ohagi is a sweet treat made by wrapping sweet red bean paste around very soft cooked rice.

(The very lovely older lady in the picture is Okaasan.  Niisan took the picture on his phone; we asked if he wanted to help, but he said he’d rather be the cameraman xp)

The rice was really hot and making the Ohagi was kinda hard at first, but I got the hang of it.  After we had finished off the last of the rice, we packed the Ohagi into pretty boxes to go to the temple (only the pretty ones though; the ugly ones, aka the ones I made xD, we got to eat).
