The balls in the picture above is one of Japanese traditional food called "Takoyaki." This food is very popular in my home country due to its pretty appearance and deliciousness. I made it with my best friend during carnival holidays. It was very fun! Ingredients are specific flour to make takoyaki, eggs, water, chopped leeks, minced leeks, and an OCTOPUS. "Takoyaki" means broiled octopus in Japanese.(However, takoyaki is kind of bread rolling chopped octopus.)

As "Takoyaki" is a traditional food in Japan, we have many opportunities to eat it during such summer festivals. It's very common to watch beautiful fireworks with eating takoyaki among Japanese.

Since it's not very difficult to make, my younger sister also makes it with my mother and me. I enjoy to cook everytime as it is very fun to make something with friends and family. My dream was to be a cook or patissier when I was small I hope I will be able to cook much better in the future.

To Aki: Really!? I never tried cheese takoyaki...I wanna try!

To Ms. Feitosa: Sure, we actually made them by using Kimch that is Korean traditional food made of vegetables.
