Toromi's mama. She is a usual and uninteresting office lady.3 Her hobby is going out and trying foods.♡ Toromi also comes by means of a stroll and participates in the hobby, and going out and trying foods becomes a little healthy. Her enjoyment is taking photos of Toromi. It is fun for her to add captions to the photos of Toromi.

とろみのママ。ふだんはしがないOL。 趣味は食べ歩き♡ とろみが来たことによって散歩も趣味に加わり、すこ〜し健康的な食べ歩きになりました。 楽しみはとろみの写真をとること。 とろみの写真にセリフつけたりするのが楽しい♪


"Toromi" means "thick" with the definition of slow, dense, and dumb. This little silly puppy looks and feels like mochi!

Japanese Culture

1. Mochi (餅) is a Japanese rice cake made of glutinous rice (not to be confused with gluten) pounded into paste and molded into the desired shape. In Japan it is traditionally made in a ceremony called mochitsuki. While also eaten year-round, mochi is a traditional food for the Japanese New Year and is commonly sold and eaten during that time. Wikipedia: Mochi

2. Toro no Hi (トロの日, Day of Toro) on October 6, 2012 was a special event day for the character, "Toro," a white cat. Toro no Omise

3. An office lady, often abbreviated OL, is a female office worker in Japan who performs generally pink collar tasks such as serving tea and secretarial or clerical work. OLs are often unmarried and live with their parents well into early adulthood. Office ladies are usually full-time permanent staff, although the jobs they do usually have little opportunity for promotion, and there is usually the tacit expectation that they leave their jobs once they get married.
