Davy and Nena Make Japanese Pudding


Makes 4 100ml servings.

  1. In a bowl, put pudding mix in with 200ml of hot water mix well, “literally melt the mix well”.
  2. Add 100ml water and mix well. Poor into pudding forms.
  3. Put in the freezer for 1 hour to set.
  4. Mix the caramel packet with 1 Tablespoon of water. Pour over the top just before eating.

The bottom photo are alternate methods. I think it just says that if you put the caramel mix in while it’s still hot it will sink to the bottom and you can have it set after

Daddy’s notes:

First of all remember that 100ml = 0.422675 of a cup. 1 Japanese cup       = 200 millilitres
≈             7.04        imperial fluid ounces
≈             6.76        U.S. customary fluid ounces

The Tablespoons measurement seems to be universal, even in Japan.


Passion Fruit Kit Kat

A few months back I was in Narita on my way back to the US and saw a huge Kit Kat box with 15 different flavors of Kit Kat:

  • Edamame-Soybean
  • Pear
  • Blueberry Cheese Cake
  • Shinshu Apple
  • Hot Japanese Chili
  • Brown Sugar Syrup
  • Strawberry Cheese Cake
  • Wasabi
  • Red Bean Sandwich
  • Cinnamon Cookie
  • Matcha-Green Tea
  • Hojicha-Roasted Tea
  • Citrus Golden Blend
  • Strawberry
  • Purple Sweet Potato

Most of these were pretty specific to Japan. Unfortunately most of them weren’t that good. Almost none of them were “regular chocolate” based, but white chocolate.

I think they are running out of flavors… Today in the 7-11 next to my apartment, I found Passion Fruit Kit Kat.

Fujitsu to Spin Off Two Divisions

Fujitsu announced it has decided to spin off its shared technology and design divisions and convert them, as of October 1, 2007, into two newly established corporations, Fujitsu Advanced Technologies Limited and Fujitsu Design Limited. Fujitsu is making its broad operational expertise and experience available to customers through the provision of business process outsourcing (BPO) services. Now, in conjunction with this approach, Fujitsu is separating into independent subsidiaries its shared technology and design divisions.
