Wednesday is Movie Day for Ladies

Toho Cinemas offer a special rate for ladies on every Wednesday.

Normal rate is JPY 1,800 (USD 18) for adult, but for special rate for ladies on Wednesday is JPY 1,100 (USD 11).

Three of us went to watch Star Wars Han Solo at Toho Cinema, Tokyo Midtown Hibiya.

We were greeted by Godzilla.

We watched it at Screen 8.

I should enjoy ladies movie night n very movie way: hot dogs, pop corns, coke and red wine.

I had a glass of red wine while watching the movie.

I enjoyed watching as if I were at home.

This movie theatre is recently opened; therefore, it designed nicely.

There is enough gap between seat rows so heads won’t disturb our view. Great!

I might come back for Mission Impossible Fallout.

It seems the premier viewing for Mission Impossible Fallout was played here and Tom might have been here….

A new theatric movie theater opened at Tokyo Midtown Hibiya.

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

Gong Xi Fa Cai

Happy New Chinese Year!

I’m not Chinese, but it’s Chinese New Year.

I want to do something Chinese today.

Therefore, I watched a movie, Man Hunt, which is collaborated between Japanese and Chinese and directed by Chinese Director, Mr. John Woo.

I watched the movie with subtitle because Chinese actors and actresses speak in Chinese.

It was 7:15 pm show so I changed cinema mileage (yes, we can cumulate mileage by watching movies) to a free drink and popcorn.

After the movie, I went out for Chinese dinner at my favorite Chinese restaurant, Tsim Sha Tsui, Roppongi.

It was late, but the owner is very kind allowing us in.

We wished her Gong Xi Fa Cai, then she gave us a dessert!

How sweet of her!

This is her way of giving me a sweet Ang pie (good luck red envelope)!

Thank you and….

Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Japanese Movie Saturday

I watched a Japanese movie, Inori no Maku ga Oriru Toki (When Lower the Curtain of Prayer) at Toho Roppongi.

This movie is the last case of TV series, Shinzanmono (New Comer).

It’s a dramatic detective movie with great sadness, very touching story.

After the movie, I had nice okonomiyaki (Japanese-style pizza or pancake) for early dinner.

This okonomiyaki is sauce flavor with buta (pork), kyabetsu (cabbage), negi (leeks) and tamago (egg).

It might look the same; however, this okonomiyaki is called negiyaki: soy sauce flavor with a lots of negi, buta and tamago.

I opened Japanese design Coca-Cola for late dessert.

Comical Movie Saturday

Today, I watched two movies at Toho Cinema Roppongi.

First, I watched Renegades.

For Japan market, this movie is titled: Navy Seals.

I thought this movie is a serious action movie, but this movie betrayed my expectation – comical with nice sceneries.

I dive so I can feel the excitement while watching.

I plan to return for Kingsman the Golden Circle later.

In the evening, returned to Toho Cinema Roppongi.

This is another comical movie.

Is this based on British comics?

I thought there are Japanese and American comics only, never thought there is British comics. hahaha

Yes, this movie is comical.

Movie Sunday

I woke up early for Sunday to catch 9:00 am showing movie at Toho Cinema, Roppongi.

Star Wars started showing on 15 December 2017 in Japan.

I watched it on an Extra Large Screen with better audio, DOLBY ATMOS.

The movie is absolutely nice!

I cried through the movie and this is definitely a must movie.

Later in the afternoon, I watched Murder On The Orient Express.

I enjoyed it in different way, classic but thrilling.

It was an exciting day!

One can make me happy, but TWO!

Extremely, happy!

Enhancing My Time @ Gym and Room

It is a Japanese national holiday today: Ocean Day.

It’s been hot in Japan and there was no national holiday in July.

Japanese government was smart to create a national holiday in July for a break.

However, my office opened today.

It’s been a quiet day so I went out for lunch.

I had a Freahness Burger’s Cheese Burger set.


It’s a nice Japanese burger shop and delicious, but I learned that calory is high… 

delicious food always with calories…… ahhhhhh


Boss left the office and I was alone in the office this afternoon.

I quickly finished writing reports and sending emails to make time to further study about privileges of being Amazon Prime members.

Annual fee of JPY 3,900 covers fast delivery fee, video and music.

I was considering to enhance my time at gym and room with these video and music.

I had time to Pochi.

Amazon Prime Music

Amazon Prime Video

Trip to the US (Day 9)

This would be my last meal in the States… haaaaa


At last, I enjoyed my Peet’s Coffee at San Jose Airport. 

I will continue to enjoy it in Tokyo because I bought three packs. Yeah!


Time to go back to Tokyo… sob, sob, sob




I asked for an extra blanket (got it) and also gave me a cardigan.

I didn’t know ANA rent out a cardigan!


I started watching a movie: Hidden Figures.

This movie is highly recommended to watch; very encouraging how three women contributed for development of a space rocket.

Their passion even changed the society.


I had two lunches on the flight.

This was the first lunch; beef was nice and tender.

I asked for Japanese (warabi-mochi) and cake for deserts.


Then watched another movie: Gold.

This is also recommended; interesting story, unpredictable!


Your Name: this is Japanese animation movie.

I don’t know why, but I cried…


Then I enjoyed second lunch.

After second meal, it’s end of journey…
