Unpredicted Sunday

I woke up early to make breakfast for five.

After breakfast, originally, I supposed to wait for a guest who planned to meet her relative at home while Mom sending two guests to Tokyo Station.

However, the guest changed her mind and followed Mom to Tokyo Station to send friends off and continued to walk in Ginza.

Suddenly, I became free.

I quickly made a reservation for spa.

I need spa after serving guests for days.

I managed to take a quality nap to energize myself.

I happily returned home after spa feeling fresh and excited to go for a nice dinner (that what Mom’s friend promised).

However, they had a big lunch at Ginza and already decided to eat lightly at home.

I was disappointed because I had left over from last night instead of fine dining dinner.

Oh well, I went for a walk with Choco after my dinner.

Night Sakura viewing cheered me up.

It’s beautiful.

Vernal Equinox Dayi

Usually, my office doesn’t follow Japanese holiday, but we closed today. Yeah.

I appreciate this break because I am tired.

I went to my hair salon to get a hair dryer and iron: REPRONIZER 4D PLUS.

I tried this at Salon before and my hair felt so smooth after using it, especially straight iron.

I have wavy hair that is not in fashion but gives impression of damage hair.

However, after using this hair iron which won’t damage my hair because of its technology and special material — ceramic, my hair is so straight (no sign of wavy) and smooth!

It surely drew my attention.

I was told the more I use the more my hair get straighter and healthier.

I decide to get one.

Simultaneously, I was looking for a nice hair dryer.

It might give me multiple effect. hahaha

I waited to buy these for five days till today for 5 times Point Day at Roppongi Hills.

I save points to get a voucher for my beauty salon. hahaha

Today, we received a guest who is 91 years old, fit and wise.

In fact, I enjoy talking to her.

She brought us various kind of sweets for our afternoon tea.

Guess who also enjoys her company.

She will stay with us till Sunday.

What shall we do tomorrow?

Birthday Protein

After massage, I received my birthday protein.

I selected berry flavored protein with orange juice.

To my surprise, it’s delicious!

I’m not a protein person, but I asked about the protein.

ALPRON Berry Berry protein with orange juice is nice!

It’s fruity yet it’s whey protein.

I might order it online.

Total Beautifying Day

I went to spa for facial, body and hair.

I had a head massage as birthday of the month special.

It’s nice and I might ask it again.

There was a surprise.

A beautician must have heard of my stomach making noise.

She brought me some sandwich as birthday of the month girl special.

So sweet of her.

I’m going there to beautify myself; simultaneously meeting my friends for chit chatting.

In the afternoon, I went to gym.

Instead of stretching or exercising, my trainer massage me to balance my body.

According to him, my body is overworked.

True enough, I fell sleep while he was massaging me.

Thanks to him, I’ve gained some energy.

In the evening, I met up with Dad.

We visited Hokusai Updated to admire Hokusai’s Ukiyoe (woodblock paints) at Mori Arts Center Gallery, Roppongi Hills Tower 52F.

I like his Mt. Fuji series.

I had luxury of standing in front of Red Fuji and Big Wave to admire quietly.

There are many foreigners from different countries.

It indicates his arts are also popular among foreigners.

The museum is located on 52 Floor; therefore, the view from the floor is breathtaking.

It’s very scenic.

I didn’t have time to visit the observatory area; perhaps, next time.

I beautify completely — face, body, hair and heart — today.

Satisfactory day… fufufu

Birthday Events

You must be wondering what happened to my trip to Egypt.

Well, internet access was slow so I decided to go on digital detox and took sleep to enjoy my trip.

I returned to work on the next day I came back from Egypt and I had a pile of work waiting for me with a very short notice project.

I will try to share my amazing trip to Egypt soonest possible.

Due to work, I totally forgot about my birthday, 3 March, till Friday, 1 March 2019.

The Japanese sweet store, Fugetsu-do, reminded me of my birthday by looking at displayed Japanese traditional sweet and Ohina-sama (Dolls) for Hinamatsuri (Dolls Day) on 3 March.

I bought these sweets to at least celebrate my birthday because I had no plan on my birthday at that time.

I admired their Ohina-Sama at the store.

I totally forgot to decorate my mini dolls.

After I thought of my birthday, my friends contacted me to plan celebrating my birthday.

So sweet of them!

I started my Birthday Eve, 2 March 2019, with Spa.

I planned this before to treat myself.

I also sent Choco for spa and grooming.

I hope he enjoys like how I enjoy.

My spa gave me a birthday gift (chocolate in rose shape from Message de Rose) so I enjoyed it with a glass of wine.

I haven’t arranged flower for a while so I thought I should decorate a room with floor for my birthday.

Flower always bring me smiles.

I had my birthday eve dinner at Sushi Restaurant Sushi Ishii, Akasaka, Tokyo.

This restaurant allows a pet on Saturday night.

That means… Choco also joined Sushi dinner!

Though he didn’t have any piece, it was a nice dinner (for me for sure. hahaha)

On my birthday, I started with Brunch at Gaston & Gasper, Roppongi.

Of course, Choco joined me.

Choco was interested in my take out ice cream that I can make on my own.

I know it looks nice, but Sorry Choco, I cannot share it with you

At 3 pm, friends visited me to celebrate my birthday with a delicious birthday cake from La Maison and savoy.

I decorated mini Ohina Sama collection.

We laughed till evening.

I thought I would have a quiet day for my birthday two days ago; but it turned out to be a nice weekend.

Thank you my friends and Choco to celebrate my birthday with me.

Trip to Egypt (Day 1)

As usual, I was busy packing till last minutes so I woke up early to continue packing.

This time, I needed to prepare sending Choco to the pet hotel.

I’ve chosen the pet hotel that we took class.

When he arrived at the pet hotel, he seemed happy because he might still remember the staffs; but when he was taken, he looked bit sad…?

I was worried about him, but I received a daily report that he is having fun with friends.

I’m happy for him.

Unlike me, I arrived too early to Narita Airport.

The counter wasn’t opened yet; therefore, I took a drink at Tully’s to relax.

Finally, the counter opened and checked-in.

I wanted to check new collection of cosmetics; but two of them are already sold out. Sigh

I bought one lip stick and one alternative eye shadow.

This time, we used United’s Lounge.

There are less people so peaceful and comfy.

I was told that there aren’t any inflight alcohol serving so that I decided to enjoy Sake before departure.

We took the direct flight from Narita, Tokyo to Cairo, Egypt by Egypt Air.

We were greeted by Guava juice and chocolates.

First I thoughts seats are narrow; however, to my surprise, it’s quite spacious and comfortable because Egyptians are tall.

Though this airlines don’t provide a slippers, but I’m quite happy with varieties of amenities.

Food is European food.

I watched three movies.

I fell sleep for first two movies; however, these were action movies so that I don’t miss much because they were fighting on the movies.

22 Mikes

Peppermint

Lastly, I watched a movie about a woman changing her life by living with Pug: Patrick.

I fully understand her.

I slept and woke up for breakfast.

About to reach Cairo, Egypt.

This map shows places where I would visit such as Luxor, Aswan, Abu Simpbel, etc.

I got excited when I look at it.

It’s quite a distance from Japan… we travelled 10,416 km.

We landed Cairo at 3:30 am.

It was still dark and we continued our trip to Luxor by taking a domestic flight.

Though I continued sightseeing, I should stop Day 1 and continue as next day from here because I spent one night on the plane.
