Christmas Golf

My friend arranged Christmas Golf at Satsuki Golf Club Kanuma Course.

I caught 6:50 am subway for Kita Senju Station to catch Tobu Express Kegon 5 (Departing Kita Senju Station at 7:42am); this train reaches far as Nikko, a nice UNESCO heritage place.

The uniqueness of this train is it’s entrance is located at platform of other line.

I enjoyed peaceful Winter views from the window.

There are many ducks.

Mountains with snow.

I even spotted Mt. Fuji!

Mountains can be seen clear and closer.

Kegon 5

The club bus will wait for us at Shin Kanuma Station.

We checked in at the club and got ready.

Today, we can drive in the cart in the course; yeah, we can save energy!

It was nice weather, sunshine without cold wind.

I enjoyed the first half; then I had a Genghis Khan, Mongolian Style mutton BBQ for lunch.

I played okay for a player who hasn’t played for nearly two years (Score: 95).

After the game, we quickly took a bath to catch a club bus back to Shin Kanuma Station.

We went to our usual place, Micchan for after game party and Bonenkai (Year End Gathering).

We wanted to continue chatting, eating and drinking but we had a train to catch.

We continued on the train.

We even stopped at Kita Senju Station to further continued.

I had a good laugh with my friends so I could conclude that my Christmas was ver Merry.

Shopping Weekend

Yesterday, on Saturday, 9 March 2019, I went to Mitsukoshi Nihonbashi, Tokyo to buy golf shirts and a hat for my friend in overseas.

To my surprise, these golf wears by Leonard Sports Paris are mainly produced for Japan market and only available in few areas in Asia.

It was fun shopping on behalf. hahaha

On Sunday, 10 March 2019, I went to Osaka to meet my friend from Malaysia.

I hopped on Shinkansen (bullet train) in the morning and went to Osaka.

We met up at Nanba and had our lunch.

We walked Dotonbori area and decided to have grilled seafood at Isomaru Suisan Dotonbori, Osaka.

Perhaps, I looked helpless; it was so nice having someone cooking for us!

We had a big lunch but no worries; we started walking for shopping!

We took few selfie at Dotonbori (Dotonbori River), Osaka.

We continued shopping at Shinsaibashi Suji Shotemgai (Shinsaibashi Shopping Arcade).

We stopped at Daiso (100 yen shop), 3Coins+Plus (300 yen shop), etc.

There are many foreign tourists to shop; therefore, the choice of products, especially for Japanese Souvenirs are good and many!

Starbucks is popular among us.

Many beautiful seasonal Sakura designed tumblers and cups are available.

I checked the merchandise before in Tokyo.

There are many choices like shown in below photos.

But when we visited the first Starbucks of today, there are only few Sakura design merchandises available.

Other designs are all sold out at that shop.

I became panic because I wanted to get one for my dear friend.

We looked for other Starbucks – Starbucks Shinsaibashi BIG, America Mura (American Village), Shinsaibashi, Osaka – and found the design that she wants.

Luckily, I found it!

Today, merchants finish fast because the purchasing power of foreign tourists is so great.

I was in panic so I bought it, though I’m in Osaka.

Then made me wanting to have one for myself so that we can be twins. hehehe

Starbucks became a great shopping place for us.

Time was running out for me; I had to catch the Shinkansen back to Tokyo.

But we had another destination for shopping: Daimaru Department Store Shinsaibashi, Osaka.

My friend wanted to get something nice for her bosses who fought for her so that she can take this training programme in Osaka.

It’s so sweet of her.

But time is ticking…I helped her to decide souvenirs but I ran out time to accompany her to get tax refund.

Japan is safe and systematic.

I guided her and left for Shin-Osaka Eki (Shin Osaka Station) to catch my Shinkansen back to Tokyo.

I managed to reach Shin-Osaka to catch my Shinkansen.

I’m heading back to Tokyo.

I had a good time with my friend.

We laughed and exercised well.

You know women don’t mind to walk around and around the store.

I needed a crazy fun like this to get a break.

7 December 2018

I assisted photo shootings of product, superfood Granola, at Tokyo Gas Shiodome Cooking Studio, Shiodome, Tokyo.

We moved to Prince Hotel Karuizawa for the meeting with the Chief Chef of the area hotel to recommend serving Superfood Granola for the hotel breakfast.

The hotel, Prince Hotel Karuizawa, will host G20 summit in 2019.

This would be a great opportunity to introduce the product globally.

We had our lunch on the Shinkansen (bullet train) on the way to Karuizawa, Gunma.

Many foreign tourists visit Karuizawa for golfing, skiing and shopping at Mitsui Outlet Karuizawa.

The Chef waited for us to serve special menu using Superfood Granola.

What a nice surprise!

These were so good.

I wish we could stay longer, perhaps, staying at the hotel for the holiday.

Meeting After Meeting

I am assisting an instant noodle manufacturer to penetrate Japanese market.

Their products are all natural so food tasting session with potential buyers are fun.

To my surprise, each buyers have different feedback towards the products.

We can all learn from their feedback to improve the product.

At night, I had dinner @ Italian Restaurant Papa Milano, Nihonbashi, Tokyo with my golf friend.

Yes, I agree we need to plan golf!

Cheers!

Golf @ Ichihara Keikyu Country Club, Ichihara, Chiba

I haven’t play a golf for quite some time.

It’s been a nice day for a golf.

Rented a car using Times Car Share.

Times operates parking space and now equipped with rental car service.

I can rent a car by specific hours.

It is a nice day to play a golf.

I was fortunate to admire mount sakura.

I also enjoyed nice lunch served by a club house.

I had a nice day!!!

Kasumidai Country Club, Tsukuba Course, Ibaraki

It had been raining, but rain stopped today.

According to the weather forecast, it will rain again tomorrow.

I’m so lucky to play a golf on the sunny day between rainy days.

On the way to the golf course, it was foggy.


But when we arrived at the Kasumidai Cluntry Club, it was sunny and nice.


The course is nice, but my skill for putting was off today.

I couldn’t win any prize today. Boo Hoo

But it’s nice being a woman; I get a nice pack of coffee as a ladies’ participation award.


It was nice to meet golf mates that I missed playing with.


Kasumidai Country Club, Tsukuba Course is highly recommended.

I would love to play here again!
