A Word A Week Challenge – Decadent

I was sort of confused with a word from Sue this week: Decadent. I’m not familiar with it so I searched for its definition, and its meanings have bewildered me more.

One of meanings I got from Merriam-Webster is:

marked by decay or decline

So I chose this image to represent this decadent.


For another meaning, I think it’s totally opposite to the above one.

characterized by or appealing to self-indulgence

Usually, when I’m thinking about self-indulgence, I would think of special meals that I guiltily ate. I had this below one when I was in Japan. Generally, I try to avoid having dinner as I want to keep my weight. However, at that time my friend got together with her friend, who’s married to a Japanese guy.

We went to a Japanese Izakaya restaurant (An izakaya (居酒屋) is a type of Japanese drinking establishment which also serves food to accompany the drinks. They are casual places for after-work drinking. – Source) It was a great time as we drank, ate and chatted even though we spoke in Thai mixed with Japanese. I also got a chance to eat some menus that I haven’t tried before such as radish in wasabi sauce. I drank Umeshu (Plum wine) with ices. Very delicious.
