Belated Father’s Day

It’s an once in a month flower arrangement class day.

I look forward seeing my class mates for chatting and arranging flower do relax me well.

I had a dinner appointment with my parents; therefore, I couldn’t stay for tea.

Dad wanted to go to Nihonbashi Kiyokawa for eel dinner.

We had our dinner at nice Washitsuka (Japanese room).

There is a small Japanese garden at the corridor.

This restaurant has 145 years of history and the building is 90 years old.

The building became Japanese tangible properties last year.

And we had this restaurant to ourselves only.

How exclusive and luxurious.

Food is also good; I started with Unagi (eel) Cola.

It doesn’t taste eel but it’s with eel essence.

I also had nice Akita Sake Shirakamisanchi,

It was a nice belated Father’s Day with my parents.

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 Malaysia (Day 5)

It’s my last day in Kuala Lumpur.

I had Char Kway Teow and Mangosteen for breakfast.

I managed to cross out few more on my wish list. Yeah.

Sayonara my Suite …. Sayonara Pavilion Hotel….

Thank you for your hospitality…

I still want to be with BFF so I asked her to park her car and join me for a coffee (I had a hot chocolate)

Well, I couldn’t stop the watch so I finally went in 30 mins before boarding time.

Everything went smoothly and I arrived at the gate when it was about to open.

I watched unfinished movie, Bohemian Rhapsody and newly released Aquaman.

I also had a dinner (fish) and sandwich for snack on flight.

I miss BFF already.

We stayed in most of the time but I didn’t get board.

It was such a wonderful break and I thank her for spending full four days with me.

I look forward for next vacation with her.

In addition, it is a Special Day for Japan: Accession of the New Emperor/Coronation Day.

We started the new era: Reiwa.

It’s a new start for me.

Heisei era is ending.

Emperor’s ascension will take place on 1 May 2019 to start new era: Reiwa.

We will celebrate continuous Japanese national starting from 29 April (Showa Day) till 6 May 2019.

My office usually don’t follow Japanese calendar, but this time, our office will close till 1 May 2019 to respect the head of state.

On that note, today (26 April 2019) would be the last working day for Heisei era.

I went to my memorial restaurant, Kandagawa, Ginza for lunch to treat myself.

It is the right place and delicious food to be sentimental ending my Heisei.
