  1. Since this is my guest post, so I should be the first catmentomor, haha! (But suddenly I found I become the second…)Well, I do really consider visiting this shop recently, although the weather becomes so cold now. But I still can wear warm and eat ice cream there, right?Hope this time I would have courage to try the crazy flavors. 😛
