IT's not so far from the illustration, non?
Bon appétit! (By my partner, thanks for all the photos!!!)
70 persons came. 1,400 euros were collected. It will be sent to Red Cross Japan.
It was (and still is) a huge shock to have the horrible news of earthquake which happened in Japan last month. People are still suffering under the fear without food or house. Hope all the money
we could collect will arrive there to help a bit of the situation as soon as possible.
Thank you so much for those who came to participate this event and donated!!!!!
And huge thanks to the team TWINKIE and my friend S for the great help. They helped me in every way (kitchen, serving, installing the tables or collecting the money....) Without them, I would
never have been able to achieve this. I was touched by their kindness and warm heart.
And merci merci S for organizing this event with me:)))!
Voila Ganbare Japan!
