Hello there!

Thank you for stopping by at my blog and what a nice surprise that I'm greeted here with interesting facts and pictures of a (I bet) delicious Green Tea Roll Cake!

I am particularly interested in the last part of the trivias. I've read about it somewhere before and have always been tempted to do an experiment myself... ahahhakahkahakhk! Great blog you have here and it's good to know that I have a new place to visit everyday :)
