Food, Miscellaneous



                                                                           Miso ramen at O-San

As it turns out, I couldn’t even keep my promise to post at least once a month! Ah well.

I must confess that in the last month and a half (?) I haven’t really been able to find the time to do any language study in particular. I am taking a French class at uni so I am at least obliged to prepare for that, but otherwise… I’ve squeezed in a bit of grammar here and there but :/. Language learning is still a hobby and my formal studies must come first unfortunately.

Having said all that, when this semester’s exams finish on 27 June, I plan to get right back into the swing of things. I still think I would like to try the N2 exam in December, so I will continue on with my grammar and vocabulary and start some reading practice. I think I would also like to take the plunge and try Italki. Has anybody used it before? If you have, please let me know how you found it ^^

And yes, as you can see, in a typical me apology I have inserted a healthy dose of food porn in this post. Ramen is definitely…one of my favourite foods I can safely say. It’s too rich to eat regularly, but when I do save my appetite and take that first mouthful…it’s magic and reminds me all over again why I love it so much. Ramen is a culinary hug in a bowl, a hug for the stomach and soul *w* Sometimes I wonder if I should just give up on language blogging and make this a ramen blog xD What do you guys think? 😛 I’ve been going to Ramen O-San quite a bit recently, but only because it’s so reasonable and the eggs are always so. damn. on. point. I hope that you can understand me.


I might leave you guys here for today. I’m looking forward to blogging more during my holidays, but in the mean time, please let me know what you’ve been up to!! ^_^

PS So Benny Lewis commented on my blog ?!?

    Hey Chantelle, The ramen looks so yummy!!! Firstly that is awesome the Benny commented on your blog! 😀
    Secondly, I’ve been on iTalki for a bit, but I’ve been quite shy to try speaking with others just yet. I really like it though, it has a system similar to Lang-8 with the journal and correcting others, you can ask quick language questions, and you get sent emails with articles about the languages you’ve chosen which is really nice in conjunction with updates I get from other language blogs :3 my account is
    How has uni been btw? I’m now in the study week before exams, I’m feeling quite confident but there’s a flu that’s been going around :S
    I’m still undecided about studying for N2 at the end of this year as I may be going to China (I mean, I could take it in China? But that might be weird XD) so I may put it off if I do go to China >.>

    • Hey Hannah!
      Thank you for continuing to support and read my blog as always!! ^_^
      Yes, the ramen was yummy. So yummy T.T Do you have any good ramen joints in Tasmania?
      And yes, I never imagined in a million years that he would comment on my blog? Still wondering how he found me though lol
      Ah that sounds really great! Thanks for the input on iTalki, will defs keep it in mind.
      Uni…is hell tbh xD I have my last day of classes tomorrow and then full study mode + hand ins to finish up. But it will all be over soon. I have also joined a new start up student journalism initiative so I will work on that in the holidays too.
      Wow, China?! You must let me know what you decide later in the year!! 🙂
