I thought Apple Watch is durable. Ahhhhhh
Welcome to Sonokotchi World
I thought Apple Watch is durable. Ahhhhhh
It’s cooler in the morning; the sun is weaker and wind blows differently.
The temporary open air bar closed and dismantled.
The light and mist resting area is also dismantled.
I became sentimental because these are signs of ending summer.
My car is going to be 16 years old in October 2019.
It is recommended to improve safety of the car and install a drive recorder to protect myself from dangerous drivings.
It’s time for me to get a new car and expected it to be delivered end of August.
I love my car; I’ve been driving it for nearly 16 years.
I decided to go for a drive to Hayama, Kanagawa.
It takes 60 km or one hour to reach Hayama from Tokyo.
I had a nice late lunch at ESMERALDA together with Choco.
The restaurant is located near beach.
There are many people swimming there.
Food is delicious.
I guess it’s peach season; these are peach menu.
Of course, dessert.
The place is famous for Hayama Marina, a boat house.
It was a nice driving day.
By the time we returned to Tokyo, it was dinner time.
We decided to go for light dinner, but ended up eating well because food is good.
This is my first time to dine at Osteria Nakamura Roppongi.
They are thoughtful; they served by two plates to avoid our works to share among us.
Foods are good.
Drinks are good.
And desserts are good.
I wonder when would I lose weight…?
This morning we stopped by at Choco’s favorite place – GREENDOG Roppongi – to get his favorite treats – chewing bones.
The store is conducting food sampling and Choco tried it.
I asked for a sweet potato cracker with all four flavors: sheep kidney, pork cheese, salmon and vegetables.
He seems to enjoy it every much.
He finished it!
I bought him sweet potato crackers and salmon for change.
Enjoy Choco! XOXO
In the morning, the wind was strong in Tokyo due to Typhoon 10.
It’s Friday night and asked for girls night.
Each of us rushed out from office and bought something for dinner.
Pizza from Pizza Slice & Soda Fountain Roppongi, salad from Precce Tokyu Store and ice cream from Ringo. Yeah!
Typhoon 10 is passing Western Japan.
It is non-recorded Japanese summer holiday season this week.
We call it Obon and Chinese call this Ghost Festival.
This is not stated as Japanese national holidays on the calendar though many companies and factories close during this period.
Japanese Government doesn’t support any religion; however, Obon is one of important Buddhist ceremonies and majority of Japanese are Buddhists.
Japanese corporates close during this season so that employees can freely take a break.
The week is ending and so as Summer Holidays.
Many people plan to return to Tokyo from their hometowns on Friday and weekends.
Due to this large sized typhoon, flights and trains (Shinkansen) stopped the service to avoid any coming disasters such as blackout.
According to the news, people started to return earlier to Tokyo by changing their plans.
The clouds are moving fast in Tokyo as well.
A frog is also surprised with this weather.
He couldn’t move. hahaha
Time flies…I’m going back to Tokyo today….
I’ll miss the Club Lounge and Malaysian Food.
I was looking at the hotel restaurants’ promotion flyer at the room and it gave me a craving of Char Kway Teow.
I’m glad that the hotel served Char Kway Teow for breakfast today! Yeah!
I enhanced my Nasi Lamak with sunny side up egg and chicken curry. fufufu
I was introduced to Malaysian delicacy today: Malaysian Soft Boiled Egg with Kaya Butter Toast.
Kaya is coconut spread.
We add soya sauce and pepper to soft boiled egg and dip Kaya toast.
It’s nice to have it with egg york! Yammy!
I didn’t have much time after breakfast.
It’s time to head for the airport. Oh No!
Sayonara Traders Hotel…. it’s a nice hotel to stay in.
It has a nice view of Twin Tower, nice Bar, spa and service!
I’ll be back one day; perhaps, When I decide to have another Honeymoon Vacation with my BFF!
I reached to the airport…. quickly checked in and we had our drinks at the Old Town White Coffee.
Drinks are nice but I didn’t want to finish my drink.
I went in 15 mins before my boarding time because I wasn’t ready to go.
I wasn’t ready but I had to force myself.
I walked through till my seat.
That’s how the time was tight. hahaha
My seat is consider as an Aisle Seat because my desk is inside, next to the window and my seat is at the Aisle side though that is only seat.
Sayonara Kuala Lumpur; Sayonara Malaysia.
I read ELLE Japan and continued watching the movie where I left it on the way to Kuala Lumpur: the Avengers Endgame.
I’m not an Avengers fan, but enjoyed the movie.
Perhaps. I should try other Avengers series.
I had a nice Japanese lunch by Zipangu, Shangri La Hotel.
I start watching Japanese movie – Kingdom – but I could not finish it.
It is interesting movie so I should find a way to watch the rest.
I should check NETFLIX, Amazon Prime Video and JCOM On-Demand (cable TV) for the availability of the movie.
In between, I also enjoyed in-flight shopping.
This is ANA limited edition of a collection of Hakuhodo Cosmetics Brush in Sakura design.
These brushes are brushes that I use and a carrying case is convenient for travel and even daily use.
I ended my weekend trip to Malaysia by safely landed at the Haneda Airport.
The trip was short, but quality was very high!
It was definitely worth going!
We lazily woke up late in the morning.
We had to rush to go up for the breakfast.
Or shall I calm it brunch…?
I should exercise because I’ve been eating very well.
I wanted to swim at the pool of Sky Bar where we enjoyed drinks and music last night.
I selfishly occupIed the Twin Tower view. fufufu
After relaxing my body with water, we went to the SPA for 120 mins Spa Treatment: Blissful Renewal.
The menu includes Aromatherapy Foot Ritual, Aromatherapy Massage, Clarifying Facial and Herbal Tea.
We started with drinking herbal tea.
We selected the aroma oil; I selected Oolong for energizing (Lavender, Lime and Oolong Tea).
We moved to a couple room to start our Spa.
I enjoyed it very much though I don’t remember much because I slept well during the treatment.
Nonetheless, my body is totally relaxed and I feel fresh now!
It’s time for cocktail and dinner so we went straight to the Lounge.
Since my body is relaxed, drinks made me feeling even better. hahaha
My BFF made me a killer drink: coffee chocolate and whisky.
It’s her husband’s recipe and it’s nicely Chocolatey.
I regret that I forgot to take a photo.
It’s a hot drink, looks like a mug of coffee.
Now it’s time to roll over on the bed!
This is my favorite moment with BFF.
I checked in at the Traders Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.
It’s located nearby KLCC Shopping Mall and it has a nice pool bar if we decide to go out of the room.
Since my flight arrived at 5:30 am, I arrived the hotel earlier than normal check in time which is 2:00 pm.
The hotel receptionist is nice allowing us to start using the Club Lounge.
The Lounge has a nice Twin Tower view.
We had our breakfast at the lounge overlooking Twin Tower.
I had my Nasi Lamak and Tose there.
This is how I enhanced my Nasi Lamak.
I added extra beef sausage and brisk and ordered a sunny side up egg from the kitchen.
My room was ready earlier after finishing my breakfast.
I’ve requested the Twin Tower view and I got a nice view from the room.
After taking a short nap, we went up to the lounge again for a high tea.
And continued for cocktail and dinner. hahaha
It’s getting dark and Twin Tower started to look better and better in the dark.
We decided to take a look of Sky Bar by going up one floor.
This is my favorite bar in a town.
After enjoying its atmosphere, chit chatting, music and drinks at the Sky Bar, we continued chatting in the room overlooking the Twin Tower from the room until we fell sleep.
This how I love to spend my weekend get away with BFF!!!
I boarded at 11 pm.
The flight was comfortable; the seat is full flat; there are a mattress, comforter, pillow, slippers and cardigan.
There aren’t much for amenity: toothbrush, ear plugs, eye mask and aroma.
There are some amenities available on request basis; I requested for a facial mask.
I also had a side table.
Nowadays ANA plays the safe instruction in Kabuki style.
I’ve watched it before and I watch it again.
I didn’t have a proper dinner because I was looking forward for Ippudo Miso Ramen on flight for supper.
After taking my ramen for supper, I tried to watch a movie but I slept till my early Japanese breakfast.
I safely arrived at KLIA (Kuala Lumpur International Airport) to start my lazy weekend with BFF!
