Reception Hosted by the Society of Japan Aerospace Companies

I was invited to the annual reception hosted by the Society of Japanese Aerospace Companies at ANA Intercontinental Hotel Tokyo (Akasaka, Tokyo) on 31 May 2019.

I networked with Japanese Aerospace industrial players and I enjoyed talking to them.

I enjoyed talking so much that I was unable to eat nice food served by the hotel.

I don’t know what I missed out. hahaha

Today’s Flower Arrangement

The school has closed in December 2018; therefore, we are arranging at Sensei’s (teacher’s) house.

I used to purchase flower according to size and design that I wanted to arrange at the time.

Today, there is a challenge that I need to scale, design and arrange with provided flower: type, colour and quantity.

To my surprise, I enjoy the challenge.

After the lesson, we went to Aloha Kitchen, Atre Kichijoji, Kichijoji Station for chat, soufflé pancake and drink (in my case, red sangria).

Wherever we were, it would be fun to be with friends!

Trump’s Visit to Tokyo

I returned from Australia and I was surprised to see many police men in my neighborhood: Roppongi Area.

Soon I found why; President Trump was invited as the first State Guest of the new Emperor Naruhito.

American Embassy is located in the area and Prime Minister Abe was planning to take Mr. and Mrs. Trump for a dinner at the restaurant in Roppongi.

I felt very safe when I was walking in the park at night because I bumped into a police man every 5-10 m. hahaha.

I pitied police men because Trump’s Visit was on 25 – 28 May 2019 and Roppongi was crowded by people due to the event: Roppongi Art Night on 25 – 26 May 2019.

The arts were displayed.

And there was the free opened air documentary movie on Banksy.

I met up with parents for dinner.

It was difficult to get a table on Saturday, 25 May 2019.

I visited few restaurants and I managed to get a table that was just cleared at Le Pain Quotidien, Tokyo Midtown Roppongi.

I usually come here for a brunch and it was my first time having a dinner here.

I even like their dinner menu!

It’s simple, fresh, delicious and economical.

The restaurant is highly recommended for dinner as well!

Trip to Australia (Day 6)

There is an itinerary for Day 6 for Trip to Australia: returning to Tokyo by JL 774.

One day is used as follows:

Departing Melbourne at 0:05 hrs by JL 774

Arriving Tokyo at 9:05 hrs.

If this is official tour programme, I should enjoy my journey.

I like the design of amenity bag.

JAL collaborated with Tatsumura Textile Co Ltd (Kyoto).

The crane is corporate logo for JAL and it is a good luck charm for Japanese culture.

I like the design!

I have my UNIQLO down jacket but I prefer to use their cardigan which is soft and warm.

Sayonara Melbourne.

Sayonara Australia.

My seat/bed was made to make my flight comfortable.

I comfortably watched the movie: the Mule.

While watching the movie, the supper was served.

After hours, I asked for Jangara Ramen.

Yes, the flight serves Jangara that I like.

However, it wasn’t porky enough but satisfactory as inflight meal.

Wow, there is a corporate logo on the soup spoon.

After hours, breakfast was served before landing.

I decided to have Japanese for breakfast.

I requested a cup of coffee because soon I will drive back to house.

I can see clearly that we are approaching Narita Airport.

Boo boo, landed…

It was a fun trip.

I had good laughs with tour mates and I managed to reach to the summit of Ayers Rock.

I hope you enjoyed reading my post on reaching to the summit of Ayers Rock on Day 3 of Trip to Australia.

I should consider planning to go to Mt. Fuji.

Hummmm

Trip to Australia (Day 5)

It’s going to be the last day in Australia. Sob sob sob.

Going down for breakfast and I wish I could stay longer.

We started Melbourne City Sightseeing.

I was surrounded by great nature so this is a rehabilitation progress to return to hectic city Tokyo. hahaha

We walked and took tram to visit iconic places in Melbourne.

Administrative district area: Old Treasury Building.

Next to it is new Treasury Bldg.

Parliament House with Real Australian Flag – aborigine colour.

Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton Garden.

Royal Exhibition Building is Australia’s first UNESCO site.

The garden is opened to people and animals.

Trees are wrapped by metal sheets to protect trees from possum.

Melbourne is generous to people.

We took free area tram to go places.

Flinders Street Station

These clocks state train departure time.

It’s a large station.

St. Paul’s Cathedral

There is an interesting signal; symbols are wearing skirt – women!

Go Women!

We shopped at Queen Victoria Market.

Few buildings are connected and sold many fresh and interesting products.

There is one building for household and sundry goods.

The atmosphere is like a night market in Asia.

I had a Long Black and Flat White at Market Lane.

I need to tell my name and barista can write my name correctly without asking me for spelling.

I was impressed!

I bought chocolates at Koko Black, known as Australian Godiva; very nice.

I love coffee so I bought some coffee at Mc Ivers.

These are really good shopping!

There are many more tempting products but I cannot bring back all…

Honey

Spice

ETC.

We departed Queen Victoria Market for lunch.

We had a fish & chips at Holiday Inn.

We drove about one hour to reach to winery Domaine Chandon.

This winery is family of Moët Chandon.

We had a little tasting for 4 different sparkling wines.

Lastly, we can ask for one full glass of our choice.

I asked for unique red grape sparkling wine which is only available at this winery.

There is another unique sparkling wine available at this winery: iced wine sparkling wine.

I bought few bottles each for home.

After tasting nice, we had one last dinner in Australia.

I asked for a beer and I thought the size is not fair comparing to a wine.

Food was nice and so as conversation with your mates.

Then we went to our last sightseeing point: EUREKA SKYDECK.

We walked through a glass cubical that control people on the outside terrace, we can observe the city as if we were a bird overlooking from the sky.

Now we completed all sightseeing in Melbourne.

It’s time to go back to Tokyo.

After completing last minutes shopping at the airport duty free stores, I spent at the Marhaba Lounge till departure.
