13 December 2018: Last Flower Lesson

Today is the day: last flower lesson at Keisen Flower School, Kamiyacho, Tokyo.

Arrangement brought me a smile even how badly tired, angry and sad I was.

Our age differ from each other; but we enjoyed arranging together.

I will miss MokuN (Thursday Night) classmates and Sensei badly.

I arranged my last flower arrangement (two sides) with another classmate.

We presented the gift and Sensei arranged in her arrangement.

I want Sensei (teacher) to open her class one day.

Sensei, PLEASE!

29 November 2018

I was invited for dinner reception hosted by C-ASTEC (Chubu Aerospace Industrial Technology Centre: Nagoya/Chubu Area Aerospace Industrial Cluster) at Italian Restaurant Al Porto, Tokyo Big Sight.

I returned to Tokyo Big Sight at the evening.

First, I was hesitated to attend alone but it became a fun evening.

I watched a free projection mapping show when I arrived Tokyo Big Sight.

Then I enjoyed talking to aerospace players from Nagoya (Japan), Germany, Singapore and Malaysia with nice Italian wine and food.

16 November 2018

It’s been a while – two weeks? – since I posted last blog.

I’ve been physically and mentally tired because I cannot get a proper break.

I am demotivated because after completing all projects I thought I can get a break; but my boss didn’t approve my leave because he plans to take leave.

Yes, I’m very frustrated.

I should think of good time so I decide to post old dates.

On 16 November 2018, I planned a mariage styled dinner at French Restaurant IIZAKA, Yotsuya 3-chome.

Chef Iizaka served for few Ambassadors as their residence Chef.

The couple closed the restaurant just for five of us because if there were others, timing of food would be different from tables and they want to serve food at the best condition.

All dishes were like art.

Sommelier (wife) selected nice wine to match these delicate food.

I had my first Beaujolais of the year which was released on 15 November 2018.

Both my stomach and heart were satisfied with nice food & wine and their hospitality.

This is the restaurant that I surely want to return.

Nice Dinner & Nice Walk

I had a nice Pork Shabu Shabu at Butagumi, Roppongi.

I highly recommend to try Kagua Beer.

Japanese company requested Belgium Brewery to produce a beer according to Japanese company’s recipe.

Kagua Blanc and Rouge.

I was shocked when I had a sip of Rouge; I had a Rouge first.

If you want to surprise twice, please start with Blanc.

However, Rouge is knock-out and I was knocked-out. hahaha

A bottle of wine is reasonable there; a French Bordeaux wine for JPY 3900 for a bottle.

Food is also nice.

Would I go back again..? Absolutely!

On the way back home, I saw night illumination from the park.

I quickly went back and went to the park with Choco.

Press people were there to take photos and video.

I believe those are for promotion and meant for announcement for Christmas event at Tokyo Midtown Roppongi.

I watched a whole three minutes show selfishly to myself and Choco before the event starts.

It’s so beautiful….

Design Day

I joined the Design Tour to be with my colleague for a day.

First, we visited Good Design Marunouchi.

Currently, 50 juries are introducing their best G-Mark winner products here.

Yes, I spotted Haku Accessories.

I can wear gold plated jewelry like a sticker.

First, cut the tape to suitable length, then remove the plastic film, place the jewelry on my skin, wet the paper so that it will stick.

We can buy some of these G-Mark winners’ product at Good Design Store Tokyo by Nohara at KITTE

We continue our trip to Ueno Station, Hard Rock Ueno Station.

Then walked AmeYoko (American Street).

I had a Kebab for lunch.

We stretched to Akihabara to visit Hobby Building, Radio-Kan (Radio House).

We returned to Roppongi to visit Design Hub.

We could get information on other G-Mark winners that is difficult to display the actual product such as urban development.

We did enough exercise for a day.

My friend wants to eat Unagi (eel) for dinner so I took her to my favorite eel shop, Shojikiya, Roppongi.

We continued our coffee, Starbucks Christmas Drink Strawberry Shortcake Frappuccino, at her room.

We often communicate via emails and WhatsApp; it was nice spending time together!

Hope to see you soon again!

Happy Saturday

I had a bad week at work.

I’m glad that I applied for a trial lesson for boxing fitness programme at B-Monster Ginza this morning.

We boxercise in dark.

The loud EDM kept me going; otherwise, I won’t be able to finish the whole programme.

Well, technically I took a break in between so I may not able to say a WHOLE programme, but I could still stand when we finished the lesson.

It was fun!

I was seriously considering to become a member, but currently, the membership is full so I couldn’t.

I will check other studio.

After boxercise, I went to lunch at Din Tai Fung Ginza at Kirarito Ginza.

I love their dim sum.

I also enjoyed their famous Taiwanese Mango Shaved Ice!

I hope I didn’t cancelled out my exercise with these lunch. hahaha

At evening, I took Choco-chan for a walk for the first time.

He is small so he can get enough exercise at home, but it would be nice to get fresh air and fun.

We went to the Light and Mist Digital Art @ Tokyo Midtown Roppongi.

It is beautiful.

I hope Choco-chan also enjoyed the evening.
