It’s almost Spring and the Sakura are on the verge of blooming. Hanami season is fast approaching and I can’t wait!
On a heavier note, today was a very scary day. My coworker left the grease trap open without telling me and as I was carrying a hot tupper of chicken oil, I tripped on the cover and slipped. As I braced myself for the fall the oil splashed up and covered half my face. During the melee I also managed to bang my head into the shutters of the rear kitchen. Fearing that my face would melt and I’d become the phantom of the ramen, I had enough sense to set the rest of the chicken oil down and ran straight for the sink to duck my head in cold water. Luckily, the burn wasn’t that serious and it didn’t get in my eye. Seriously, I was very lucky. I spent an hour holding a cold wet towel to my face, hoping that it wouldn’t blister and scar. Thankfully, it worked. But damn, that was scary.
