It’s been so so long, you’ve probably forgotten that hanahattori.com is actually a clothing website! :P But, showing my vegan lifestyle to you is one of big purpose of my life too! :P

anyways! Finally a new dress is finished!!!

Flower dress, and special guest, momochi

Flower dress, and special guest, momochi

it’s for spring, therefore, it’s lined with cotton material, and it feels good on skin! :)

I’m going to alter a little bit, but I do like this one!Look forward to more fabric options, and if you’re interested and think this dress would be too big or small, voice your opinion and I’ll be making different sizes too! :)

I hope you have a wonderful wonderful Friday!

Good night!

love,

And I crave many things! So today, I was craving Bibimbap! I made a vegan Bibimbap.

my Bibimbap!

my Bibimbap!


ooh, yum yum yum! I didn’t take a pic, but after I took this pic, I added Yuba on top, Yuba is a skin that’s produced on the surface when you heat up soymilk. But you can buy dry Yuba, which is what I bought this week. It was my first time to ever use dried yuba, but I’m excited to use it for more recipes now! :)

Since I try to pretend like I’m a nice person, I’m going to share all my favorite products here! :) I have so many, so I’m just gonna do this little by little when I can. It’ll probably be all about food, though! you know me, I love eating!
 
 Today, I’m going to introduce you, …this!

This is a Red bean bun, when we have this in the refrigerator, we eat this everyday! and we try to get this every week, aka, we usually eat it everyday, except, they have been sold out at the store and we have been eating those bun with different stuffing :(
 
They taste so good, and these size is great (not too small, not too big), doesn’t have crazy calories, and! There’s no chemicals! The ingredients are so simple!! There are many companies that make those buns, but this company is by far the best when it comes to the ingredients. It has like 4 ingredients, red beans, sugar, flour and one preservative, you can compare to other brands and have like 10 ingredients with those names you can’t pronounce.
 
  And, these little guys come in a pack of 10, and they are less than $3. I love love this Red bean buns, if you ever see them, you should get them! If you live in NYC, you can usually get them at this supermarket (Sorry, I go there every week but still don’t know the name of the store!) that is under the bridge on East Broadway in Chinatown, Manhattan. It’s a Chinese product, you can probably get them at some Asian markets, maybe you can google the company and find out where you can buy them outside NY.
 
 Preparing is, you just have to steam it for about 15 minutes and, it will give you heaven! hee hee :P They are such a great complement to tea (the Asian tea that you drink without sugar! )
 
 
love,

Our dinner yesterday!
 

it sure is another vegan meal!

it sure is another vegan meal!


they look like…. pan fried hot dog doggie, cod roe and mayonnaise salad and Indian curry with ground meat? But they aren’t! :P
 
it is veggie dog doggie, when I have odd numbers left, I like to just cut them and pan fry them, and eat with spicy mustard. and the cod roe looking potato salad is, Amaranth, I used a Japanese recipe to make them like cod roe, and just mixed it with vegenaise and potatoes, it was yummy! and the last, Indian curry, this is on of my staple recipe that I repeat a lot, I use TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein) and use a lot of spices. See, vegan food is fun, you can pretty much make anything you’re craving without having to take away any lives! :)
 
 
BTW, I’m alive! and I’m going to update my blog more often! Thank you, thank you, Ashely to stop by!! :) love you!

Newsletter from PETA
 

ChickenVictory for Animals Used for Clothing!
After almost a year of being a target of PETA’s anti-fur campaign, popular designer Donna Karan has announced that her fall 2009 lines will be fur-free and that she has “no plans” to use fur in the future! More than a dozen leading designers and retailers have now dropped fur as a result of our work.

Two Victories for Animals Used in Experiments!

Victory #1: Thanks in no small part to a PETA affiliate’s pressure and financial support to develop humane alternatives, new skin-irritation tests have been approved, which will allow manufacturers worldwide to test cosmetic ingredients for skin irritation without using a single rabbit or other animal. Tens of thousands of animals will be spared!

Victory #2: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration nixed a new round of painful animal tests for the natural sweetener stevia after PETA’s staff scientists argued that the animal test results would not be relevant to human health effects. Decades of evidence and scientific consensus proved the vivisectors wrong—again!

Victory for Victims of Glue Traps!
Following an appeal from PETA, the nationwide chain Dollar Tree will stop selling glue traps—devices that cause rodents, birds, and other small animals to suffer cruel, slow, and painful deaths. We’ve now gotten these terrible devices pulled from nearly 30,000 stores in North America. “
