Seeing is believing.
Peaceful Town: Matsuzaka, Nishi-Izu
I immediately line this town.
Crab on the street.
Old fashion building with Namako Kabe (Sea Cucumber Wall).
Nice dinner at Shinsai Kuon.
Be careful with Wasabi Edamame (Wasabi young Soy Beans). It really hit you.
All others are also nice.
There was an antique cashier that can work today.
There is a traditional post.
And this is my BGM for a night.
It’s not far from Tokyo; It takes 3:30 hrs.
It’s worth coming
Feeling Spring and Summer
I admit this is my bad habit.
I cannot stop following new colour or limited edition of CHANEL.
I surely use these Spring/Summer limited edition collections: eye shadows and a glittering brown mascara.
I love glitters.
I was worried that these limited edition would be out of stock; therefore, I bought them at the selected shop, Fruit Gathering, at Roppongi Hills where I was just walking by.
The shop sells various selected cosmetics brands so I received a sample of Dior’s DIORSNOW.
There is additional cream inside.
I will happily try them.
Feeling Spring and Summer from eyes. fufufu
My friend recommended me the followings and decided to start for health and beauty.
N.O.U Brown Rice Black Vinegar for Health (Energy with Rich of Amino Acid and Citric Acid)
N.O.U Sellsizer for Health (Slimming)
Benefique White Bloom for Beauty (Whitening)
I shall see for outcome in a month with these one month supply.
New Normal: Webinar
Today, it’s difficult to organize physical seminars.
I was a project officer to co-organize a recent webinar with a law firm.
My Boss was happy with arrangements, presentations and quality of participants.
I coordinated with the co-organizer to prepare invitations, eFlyers, ZOOM Background, etc, prepared the Boss” presentation material and invited participants.
It was a new and interesting project and this would be a new normal of seminar style.
This is my first time to see the real ACTRESS LIGHT.
We call this, “ACTRESS LIGHT” because this is a must item for an actress to enhance face texture and look of beauty.
The law firm was happy with the outcome so we all happily enjoyed chatting with nice puddings, cup cakes, fruit and coffee after the webinar.
Now I know what needs to be done so if there is a next time, I could arrange smoothly.
New Normal: More Time
In late April or during Stay Home request, I was unable to order my basic cosmetics that I get supply from Rumania via Amazon.
I got panic because night cream was about to finish and these are the basic cosmetics that my skin can take only.
I looked for alternative supplier but there was none.
I also looked for alternative product but I couldn’t check the product because the store was closed due to government’s request.
At the end of May, I was desperately checked Amazon again.
Yeah, the service is back!
I quickly ordered via Amazon.
It says it takes 6 – 8 working days to reach me in Japan.
Usually, the parcel arrives earlier than the scheduled day.
However, it was taking longer this time and started making me nervous.
Simultaneously, I understand there are less flights available for delivery.
I need to be patient.
The package has safely arrived today!
I finished night cream last night so luckily, the package arrived today!
I think we need to understand that it might take longer to receive the same service – this is part of new normal, I think.
I’m so happy to receive my Gerovitals from Rumania!
Japanese government lifted the State of Emergency on 26 May 2020.
Businesses started to reopen.
I had my spa; however, there are new routines to be added such as taking body temperature at the entrance, beauticians wearing mask and plastic face shield and during my hair treatment, I continue wearing my mask.
Italian dinner at IL FIGO INGORDO Roppongi.
The restaurant has taken away tables to half to provide enough distance between tables.
Furthermore, they operate by less staffs (2 floor staffs) and chefs (3 chefs).
Now Tokyo Metropolitan Government allows restaurants to operate till later hours (closing 10 pm from 9 pm).
I haven’t had wine for more than a month..?
It tasted so smooth and so goood!
It surely enhanced food.
I also had dessert wine and desserts: vanilla and blueberry ice cream.
Today we need to adopt new normal to enjoy our daily life.
Businesses are taking measures against COVID and I respect them to provide us safety and their considerations and efforts.
I enjoy my every days!
Stay Home: Officially Last Day
Japanese government officially lifted the State of Emergency (Stay Home Request) for Tokyo today.
I’m gonna miss being lazy when I wake up.
On the other hand, town is getting active and cheerful.
Though we had restrictions, I had rich moments during Stay Home Period.
I started good practices such as healthy diet, self beauty care, Choco’s care and many more.
I became healthier, both physically and mentally.
I think I managed to detox my body as well as thoughts.
I like TODAY’s ME.
I should continue good practices that I started during Stay Home Period.
The State of Emergency is lifted throughout Japan but it doesn’t mean our safety is guranteed.
We still need to be careful; however, I strongly believe we can control the COVID.
Today I appreciate more what I used to have: freedom, social life, entertainment, etc.
I consider it as a wake up call so that I appreciate every moment.
The government lifted the State of Emergency to 39 prefectures (states) on 14 May, 3 prefectures in Kansai/Osaka region on 21 May and plans to lift for the rest of 5 prefectures such as Tokyo, Kanagawa, Chiba, Saitama and Hokkaido.
Japanese government originally planned to conduct the State of Emergency till 31 May 2020; therefore, my office plans to practice work from home till 31 May 2020.
Though the government lifts the State of Emergency or Stay Home Request, it doesn’t mean our safety is guaranteed.
We still need to be extra careful.
I’m comfortable with the working environment during Stay Home Request.
This is how I work at home.
In addition, I could save commuting time to start new such as self beauty care and quality time with Choco.
I start brushing his teeth.
Now town is getting active and cheerful.
We will start new styled daily life tomorrow.
Stay Home: Choco’s Hair Cut
Choco finally had his hair cut today.
Choco waited two months for his hair cut because his previous appointment was cancelled two days before!
For us, grooming business is surely essential; unfortunately, government didn’t see it essential.
So imagine how hairy he was!
I kept his hair long during winter and I was planning to cut short for Spring/Summer season for the previous session.
Literally, he was a hair bomb!
Now he looks handsome and cute.
I need to go to office tomorrow (once a week routine) and I’m happy to work from home…how can I resist this? Ahhhh
