Is Diving Addicted…?


I hope I’m not boring you…
Today, I received a turtle shaped dive stick and a book: Fish Watching 500.

When I started diving, I never thought I would want to learn name of fish and marine creatures that I see under the water.

hahaha

By the way, I usually buy diving goods at Aqros Shibuya Store.

Staffs are kind and always give good recommendations.

I also seek an advice on diving spots.

Book: Sea Creatures Watching 500

I ordered two books in Amazon: Fish Watching 500 and Sea Creatures Watching 500.

I received Sea Creatures Watching 500 today because Fish Watching 500 is currently out of stock.


Now I’m interested to learn names of fish and sea creatures so that I can introduce what I see under the water.


For example, I’ve seen these sea slugs such as yellow one and blue with polka dots (I should have seen it in Malaysia because the book says it can be found in Malaysia).

I never thought I would enjoy watching these encyclopedias….

Trip to Sipadan (Day 6)

It’s time to go back.

Sayonara & Arigatoooooooo!!!



Since it’s a last day of Japanese Golden Week holiday, a plane back to Japan is full.

I had to divert to Singapore: Tawau – Kauala Lumpur – Singapore – Haneda/Tokyo.

On the way to Singapore, I already started feeling sentimental by looking at movies and photos.

I arrived Singapore happily and saw a disturbing word on a signboard – Delayed.


Soon I found that my flight delayed for a half day – I missed going back to office on Monday. Ahhhhh
We get a free accommodation in Singapore, but this is unexpected.


It is a nice hotel, but didn’t have much time to enjoy my stay.

We arrived midnight and left hotel at 5:15 am to catch 7:45 am flight.
Luckily, I’ve been waking up at Kapalai/Sipadan early.


Hotel quickly prepared supper for us.

At the Changi Airport, I found a wine tasting server – interesting!


As usual, I enjoyed food and movies on the crowded plane.

Breakfast


Passengers


Collateral Beauty


I read a manga on the screen: Tokyo Tarareba Musume (Tokyo What If Girls).

My first time to read a manga on the airline screen!


Finally, I reached Haneda/Tokyo.

What a trip!

This trip become a memorable one for sure!

Would I do it again?

Absolutely!

Saving Paper


I stopped buying magazines.

But it doesn’t mean I lost interest in beauty, health and fashion.

I try to read them at the gym while I exercise.

In this case, I can save money, paper and space in my room, but able to obtain information♪

And finally my gym installed WiFi!

Gym is located in B1 (basement); therefore, 4G is out of reach.

I’m happy with a news.

I quickly registered password.

If we could use WiFi there, we can have more fun!

Book Review: The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

I finished reading this book today.

The story started slow, all about a lady with issues such as alcohol and relationships; it made me bored.

However, I continued reading it because its review is good and if I’m not mistaken, a movie will be made based on this story.

A story towards the end is very exciting: I love suspense, but I couldn’t guess a murderer.

I couldn’t stop reading it.

I hid my iPad to read on Kindle after my lunch hour (only for 30 mins) to finish a book. (I work over time, but I don’t get paid for over time so I do have an excuse for this).

Reading a book is a good exercise to improve my English.

I can kill two birds by one stone: I can learn English while having fun reading it.

Mindfulness

Nowadays I can easily find the word, mindfulness, on Japanese women’s magazines.

There are many magazines at my beauty salon and I read about it briefly the other day.

Today, I was standing in a train on the way to my dermatologist.

I needed to hold a rail because a train was packed. 

Since I was holding a rail, I cannot play with my mobile.

I looked outside, but I couldn’t see anything because windows were all fogged up due to a cold rain.

I remembered MINDFULNESS.

I didn’t close my eyes, but my surrounding created a perfect situation to listen to my feeling.

I have frustration.

While waiting for my turn at the dermatologist, I browsed on internet to learn more about MINDFULNESS.
Now it’s time to listen to my feelings to love myself more.

Perhaps, I can practice while I’m taking a bath because I sit in a bathtub for 10 – 15 mins in nice aroma and I’m relaxed.
