Evening with/for Choco-Chan

I went our for dinner together with Choco-Chan.

I like to dine at Orange, Tokyo Midtown Roppongi.

Food is good and the restaurant allows Choco-Chan at a terrace table.

I would be worried about Choco-Chan at work or when I’m out.

I ordered this IP WiFi camera which is suitable monitoring a baby, elderly, pet and home security last night. Yeah!

Now I can check on him anytime!

Weekend Trip to Kyoto (Day 2)

I had obento (packed food. Actually, I bought sandwich this time) for breakfast last night.

I had Amanoya Tamago Sando (Amanoya egg sandwich), Azabu Juban, Tokyo and Jiichiro’s Baumkuchen – a souvenir from Mom’s friend.

For Amanoya Tamago Sando, I recommend to eat this as soon as possible because it surely taste better when it’s fresh and fresher the better.

Oh, I should introduce one of services that this hotel provides to hotel guests during our stay.

The hotel provides a free mobile to call, access internet and to obtain sightseeing information.

Foreign tourists surely appreciate this service.

Today, I visited a friend; I had nice lunch while we chatted.

I returned to Kyoto and enjoyed shopping at JR Kyoto Isetan, Kyoto Station.

Why shopping in Kyoto?

In Tokyo, I have things to do — mainly house keeping — and there are too many people at a store that would make me feel tired to do shopping.

Here, I could take time to pick clothes. hahaha

I had a dinner at Kyoto Cuisine, Kyo Yasai Ryori Sepporai (Kyoto Vegetable Cuisine Sepporai), Kyoto Station.

I enjoyed Kyoto local vegetables very much!!!

After dinner, I went for a walk: window shopping at Porta, shopping area at underground of Kyoto Station.

Window shopping is my favorite way of exercise!

I walked for an hour easily.

Fruitful Sunday

Today, there was a special campaign for Sixpac at Yodobashi Camera Akihabara.

I tried them and I think these are good.

My personal trainer recommend it so let’s give a try.

After lazily exercising, rushed to a movie.

A new theatric movie theater opened at Tokyo Midtown Hibiya.

I watched American Assassin.

I enjoyed it.

After the movie. I had early dinner; enjoying food and gathering.

Trip to Bulgaria and Romania (Day 1)

I joined a 10 days tour package to visit Rose Festival (once in a year event) in Bulgaria and Romania.

I departed Narita Airport for Sofia, Bulgaria by Austria Air.

This is my first time traveling by Austria Air.

Austria Air started operation again after a year and 8 months absence.

Austria Air stopped the operation between Vienna and Japan because the number of Japanese tourist dropped due to active terrorist attracts in Europe then.

I quickly walked through immigration because I had shopping to do.

I usually get my supply of cosmetics at Narita Airport.

It could be cheaper to buy cosmetics in overseas duty free shops but the quality of cosmetics are better in Japan because the stores always get new supplies due to the large number of shoppers to visit the shop.

I learned this through my experiences.

I bought cream eye shadows at the overseas duty free shop but when I open it, one of them was cracked and others are firm though it’s Chanel cream eye shadows, these must be already dried.

The shop is too far to complain or ask for replacement…

This time, I get mascaras (Chanel one’s in gray. I look forward to wearing it) and nails.

I didn’t have much time to rest at the lounge, but it’s okay.

Austria Air shares the lounge with ANA so I’m already familiar with their food and facilities. hahaha

Then time to board!

The facilities are nice: thick blanket, nice headset, beverages, food, desserts, even COFFEE!

These are in a bag of amenities.

I had lamb as my main dish for dinner.

I also enjoyed Austria dessert wine (a blend of Chardonnay and Welschriesling) with cakes.!

I was amazed by the coffee; there are so many varieties.

I tried Maria Theresia: an exclusive Wiener Coffee which is black coffee with delicious orange liqueur!

I enjoyed watching movies with a nice headset and sleep on a comfortable seat.

Look what I found at the laboratory.

I found stain remover for clothing; how thoughtful they are!

I kept them in case I need them.

I had roasted chicken breast broccoli potato pepper gratin for breakfast.

I love having my breakfast with a glass of champagne. hahaha

I enjoyed my flight and safely arrived Vienna, Austria.

I still had to catch a connecting flight for Sofia, Bulgaria.

I haven’t visited Vienna yet so I will make sure to return here.

It is international flight, but it took few hours to reach Sofia, Bulgaria.

I had snacks on the flight; we can choose from either sweet and salty.

By the time we reach Sofia, it was already dark; of course, we landed at 11 pm.

We finally reach to our hotel: Hilton Sofia.

I soaked my body into a tub to relax.

It was a long day due to long journey and time zone. Zzzzzzz

I’m such an amateur.

I thought I can change it from outside.

Ahhhhhhh

Shopping at Yodobashi Camera, Akihabara

I went to Yodobashi Camera, Akihabara which has sales area of 23,800 sqm to find TV, Blue Ray Recorder, refrigerator and laundry machine.

The retail named Camera because it originated a specialized camera shop, but today, the store cannot survive by just selling cameras.

The store sells cameras, electric home appliances, mobiles, PC, accessories, toys, TV games, etc.

It’s quite fun to visit for even window shopping.

I usually go there when I want to consider purchasing these products to obtain product information.

I did the same thing this time.

In the morning, obtained enough information on each products, then returned to condo to double confirm the size of area for each home electric appliances; then returned to Yodobashi Camera to purchase them.

We decide to support Japanese manufacturer this time.

TV: Sony

Blue Ray Recorder: Panasonic

Refrigerator: Mitsubishi

Laundry Machine: Sharp

I cannot wait for the delivery day.

Cable…?

Suddenly, I couldn’t use my office email account.

My boss and colleague were telling me earlier that they are unable to use their email.

Therefore, I asked for IT engineer to remote in my PC to solve the problem.

According to the engineer, the system is working, but I am disconnected.

I was asked to unplug and plug back the cable.

Solved.

But how could it happen?

I didn’t touch the connection.

I was fine till noon; then suddenly lost the connection…?

Hummmm
