Walk Walk Walk…

On 4 May 2020, Japanese government announced the extension of the State of Emergency till end of May 2020.

Government requested businesses to continue considering closing its business (especially retailers and services) and working from home if possible.

I’m glad to know that my boss decoded to cooperate to government’s request and to continue working from home.

However, we are still require to return to office once a week to check on office and settle office administrative matters.

And today, we are required to go to the office.

Though Japanese government announced the extension of the State of Emergency and many of us will continue to work From home; I expected a large number of office staffs to go to office today because the long Japanese National Holidays, Golden Week, just ended yesterday.

As I mentioned earlier, I don’t mind to work at the office but I do mind to take a crowded subway.

The weather is getting better (20C – 28C) so I decided to walk to the office today.

It takes 1 hour walk or 4 km or 4 subway stations to the office.

On the way back, I stopped by few stores to look for and buy a battery for thermometer, bulbs and grocery.

Furthermore, today, Choco patiently waited for me so I took him for a walk.

Today I walked a total of 10 km or 18,153 steps.

Now I’m exhausted and ready to hit the bed.

This week, we need to go back to office again tomorrow; and YES, I plan to walk to the office.

I hope the waking would contribute to accelerate my weight loss. hahaha

Spa is still closed so I’m trying self beauty care with what I have such as given gifts and samples.

I think I would be busy trying these at home.

I will surely enjoy using them and making space in cabinets.

Stay Home: Self Beauty Care (Nail)

The series of nail stamp is available at 100 yen shop, Can Do.

Of course, the price for each stamp plates and stamps are JPY 100 (USD 1).

There are many attractive designs and I have been collecting stamp plates without any guilt.

I wanted to try it for long; however, I thought it could be difficult and hesitated to try.

Now it’s good time to try it.

First I apply base nail colour.

CHANEL Joyau

I remove a film from stamp plate.

Place a stamp and scraper

Select the design and apply nail colour that I want to stamp on the nail.

Use scraper to remove extra nail polish from the stamp plate.

Press the stamp on the stamp plate to transfer the design on the stamp.

Stay Home: Self Beauty Care (Facial)

I cannot make an appointment for my spa yet; therefore, I have to proceed with self beauty care at home.

I tried out this enzyme facial mask developed by Hollywood Cosmetics Co Ltd which I believe spa usually apply to me during my facial treatment.

I need to mix powder and cream before applying to my skin.

The sample packaging is quite unique; there is a divider and I push bottom part (Cream) to upper packaging (powder) to mix it.

I was amazed by the packaging because I already know it’s effectiveness on my skin. hahaha

Giving Choco a Bath

I regularly take Choco to grooming.

However, due to government’s declaration of the State of Emergency”, his grooming appointment got cancelled.

Choco looks scared of water so I thought he gets wild if I bath him; furthermore, I’m not used to giving a bath.

Nonetheless, I thought I should try it how it goes.

I bought a Shampoo and I already had the conditioner for his additional grooming treatment.

To my surprise, he behaved and looked enjoying taking a bath.

I troubled drying him because my hair dryer can get too hot for him.

I need to adjust the distance, power and switching hot and cool air.

I’m happy to know that he is okay with all processes and he actually looks enjoying it.

He looks so comfortable and looking at him makes me smile.

Let’s take a bath again!

Stay Home

It’s my fifth day staying home, not going out at all.

And I’m enjoying it very much.

I’m doing what I wanted to do.

I wake up and soak in a bath tub for 20 mins as if I were at Onsen (Hot Spring).

Followed by foot massage.

Hoping to detox by smoothie

Cleaning house where I haven’t touched for a while: dusting, wiping, etc.

I have enough stock in refrigerator because there were many rumors that Tokyo might lockdown (it’s a request but technically it’s more like lockdown) and enjoy clearing those food.

Stretching with my trainer.

And I realize since I’m working from home, I can play with my nails.

Happy Easter!

I plan to stay home happily tomorrow. fufufu
