Having More Fun at CHANEL

I went to clinic and was informed I’m having a flue not influenza.

I received medicines.

I started feeling better; therefore, I went to Takashimaya Nihonbashi Main Store to collect reserved cosmetics: Spring Summer 2020 Collection which I need to collect them by 9 January 2020.

I also asked beautician to try new colour on me.

Chance (Perfume) for Hair

I tried Hair Oil on….nice…

I ended up buying more….

I will try new look on me for coming Spring and Summer!

Izumo no Kamishio (Izumo Shrine Salt)

At year end, on 20 December 2019, I visited Izumo Roppongi Betsuin (Izumo Shrine Roppongi Branch) in Roppongi for pray.

I wanted to welcome New Year freshly.

The second largest shrine, Izumo Taisha, is located in Izumo-City, Shimane.

This is Roppongi Branch.

I brought back Izumo no Kamishio (direct translation is Izumo’s God Salt); this is purifying salt.

My brother transferred his flue to me so that I’m not feeling well.

To ease my day, I purified myself to calm down myself this morning before I left for work.

I just want to go back home.

Saturday Quest

I woke up at 6 am.

Poor Choco, he couldn’t have his morning walk because I had a list of quests for organizing a birthday for my friend today.

– Clean

– Decorate rooms for Halloween

– Cook lunch

It was a challenging day because I had a dentist appointment at 9:30 am in Roppongi so I had few hours to complete the above.

Furthermore, I also had chiropractics/massage appointment at 11:30 am – 12:50 pm in Ebisu.

My friends are scheduled to arrive at 1:30 pm.

Between dentist and chiropractic/massage appointment, I had 45 mins gap.

I decided to have a break at Starbucks by using a complementary ticket which I received it when I purchase a tumbler.

I had a Halloween Red Night Frappuccino.

This time, I learned that it’s difficult to enjoy Frappuccino by this thin tumbler.

I struggle to mix the flavors and to get white chocolate brownies. hahaha

After I finish my chiropractics/massage, I quickly returned home to receive friends at 1:30 pm.

I prep lunch so that I can cook to serve warm food when I receive them.

We sang birthday song and enjoyed a cake from Ogawaken Shimbashi • Meguro.

It was a lovely day.

I took Choco for a long walk in the evening.

Dinner at Tsukiji no Sakanaya, Ginza

Last night, we went out for a dinner after the meeting.

We didn’t have any restaurant in particular so we started walking to a busy street.

On the way, he spotted a restaurant.

I couldn’t imagine how the restaurant is because the restaurant is located in the basement so I could not see from the street.

When I entered, I was surprised.

It was still early, before 6, but the restaurant was already occupied.

The restaurant name is Tsukiji no Sakanaya meaning Tsukiji Fish Shop.

The restaurant is operated by a seafood wholesale company that even supplies to department stores.

All dishes are so nice, not only seafood but also vegetables.

I didn’t take any photos of food because it was my first time dining with them; however, I can assure that food is nice.

I even enjoyed talking to them.

Both of them are so cheerful.

One shared he had a surgery by Davinci (Hi-Tech operation machine) recently.

He gets after affect, but he is willing to cope with it by making it as a joke.

Another, he also had a surgery in the past.

Both of them laugh about it and live with it.

I witnessed the effectiveness of laughing.

They continued the life is once. We will live. If we are going to live, better have fun.

Wow they were like two characters from the Bucket List that I just watched on Sunday.

I’m glad I joined a dinner.

I together laughed with them.

Mindfulness

Recently, I was recommended to practice mindfulness.

I have been knowing about this but I was not interested to learn about it.

Today, yes, I do feel weak and I’m interested in mindfulness.

In a way, I consider writing the blog is my way of mindfulness.

Originally, I started to blog to improve my English writing skill and to find one thing that makes me happy,, inspiring, thinking, etc. in a day.

This is the moment to think back of my day.

I usually love to watch an action movies.

Today, I watched “the Bucket List”.

I have more years to live (hopefully)…. however, I don’t need to wait till last moment to try things.

Perhaps, I can list down my bucket list.

These can be simple things such as laugh hard till I cry like mentioned in a movie.
