Driving to Hayama, Kanagawa on Sunday

My car is going to be 16 years old in October 2019.

It is recommended to improve safety of the car and install a drive recorder to protect myself from dangerous drivings.

It’s time for me to get a new car and expected it to be delivered end of August.

I love my car; I’ve been driving it for nearly 16 years.

I decided to go for a drive to Hayama, Kanagawa.

It takes 60 km or one hour to reach Hayama from Tokyo.

I had a nice late lunch at ESMERALDA together with Choco.

The restaurant is located near beach.

There are many people swimming there.

Food is delicious.

I guess it’s peach season; these are peach menu.

Of course, dessert.

The place is famous for Hayama Marina, a boat house.

It was a nice driving day.

By the time we returned to Tokyo, it was dinner time.

We decided to go for light dinner, but ended up eating well because food is good.

This is my first time to dine at Osteria Nakamura Roppongi.

They are thoughtful; they served by two plates to avoid our works to share among us.

Foods are good.

Drinks are good.

And desserts are good.

I wonder when would I lose weight…?

Weekend Trip to Malaysia (Day 3)

We lazily woke up late in the morning.

We had to rush to go up for the breakfast.

Or shall I calm it brunch…?

I should exercise because I’ve been eating very well.

I wanted to swim at the pool of Sky Bar where we enjoyed drinks and music last night.

I selfishly occupIed the Twin Tower view. fufufu

After relaxing my body with water, we went to the SPA for 120 mins Spa Treatment: Blissful Renewal.

The menu includes Aromatherapy Foot Ritual, Aromatherapy Massage, Clarifying Facial and Herbal Tea.

We started with drinking herbal tea.

We selected the aroma oil; I selected Oolong for energizing (Lavender, Lime and Oolong Tea).

We moved to a couple room to start our Spa.

I enjoyed it very much though I don’t remember much because I slept well during the treatment.

Nonetheless, my body is totally relaxed and I feel fresh now!

It’s time for cocktail and dinner so we went straight to the Lounge.

Since my body is relaxed, drinks made me feeling even better. hahaha

My BFF made me a killer drink: coffee chocolate and whisky.

It’s her husband’s recipe and it’s nicely Chocolatey.

I regret that I forgot to take a photo.

It’s a hot drink, looks like a mug of coffee.

Now it’s time to roll over on the bed!

This is my favorite moment with BFF.

Weekend Trip to Malaysia (Day 2)

I checked in at the Traders Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.

It’s located nearby KLCC Shopping Mall and it has a nice pool bar if we decide to go out of the room.

Since my flight arrived at 5:30 am, I arrived the hotel earlier than normal check in time which is 2:00 pm.

The hotel receptionist is nice allowing us to start using the Club Lounge.

The Lounge has a nice Twin Tower view.

We had our breakfast at the lounge overlooking Twin Tower.

I had my Nasi Lamak and Tose there.

This is how I enhanced my Nasi Lamak.

I added extra beef sausage and brisk and ordered a sunny side up egg from the kitchen.

Tose

My room was ready earlier after finishing my breakfast.

I’ve requested the Twin Tower view and I got a nice view from the room.

After taking a short nap, we went up to the lounge again for a high tea.

And continued for cocktail and dinner. hahaha

It’s getting dark and Twin Tower started to look better and better in the dark.

We decided to take a look of Sky Bar by going up one floor.

This is my favorite bar in a town.

After enjoying its atmosphere, chit chatting, music and drinks at the Sky Bar, we continued chatting in the room overlooking the Twin Tower from the room until we fell sleep.

This how I love to spend my weekend get away with BFF!!!

Short Trip to Malaysia (Day 1)

It’s long weekend in Japan; therefore I decided to see my BFF in Malaysia.

I booked a ticket few days ago and now I’m at the Haneda Airport.

First, I checked my favorite shop: Chanel Cosmetics.

I become so weak when I look at LIMITED EDITION.

I bought few.

I continued shopping confectioneries for my BFF.

These are Tokyo Banana, Shiroi Koibito (White Love) and Royce Chocolate Remy Martin.

These are my favorite as well.

And guess what?

If I purchase more than JPY 20,000, I can get JPY 1000 vouchers.

I continued shopping and I bought a NICE cosmetic brush.

Now I’m chilling at the ANA Lounge to wait for my boarding time.

I cannot wait to see her in 7 hours! XOXO

Trip to Kyoto (Day 2)

There is no sign of Typhoon 6 in Kyoto.

Visited a friend and had a wonderful time; I feel fresh.

It’s a hot day so wanted to eat a nice Uji Matcha Kakigori (Uji Green Tea Shaved Ice) in Kyoto.

We visited few Japanese cafes but all had a long queue.

I gave up on a nice Uji Matcha Kakigori, then decided to further continue shopping at JR Isetan Kyoto, Kyoto Station before returning to Tokyo.

This time I bought many hair clips of Complex Biz because a lady is so good at teaching me new hair styles.

I happily bought these. hahaha

I bought Eki Ben (Boxed Food for on the Train) and Kyoto Craft Beer (Dark Beer) for Shinkansen.

I had Mango Ice Cream for dessert.

This was a great break for me.

Trip to Kyoto (Day 1)

I had sushi at Sushi Train Kantaro at Tokyo Station before departing for Kyoto.

I can take a plate freely from sushi train or order through the digital order system.

When it’s ready, it will arrive on the truck above.

We had many sushi.

Now I’m ready to depart for Kyoto by Shinkansen.

I had my dessert, seasonal ice cream/mango ice cream, and coffee, on the Shinkansen.

Typhoon 6 is approaching; therefore, there is no sign of Mt. Fuji today.

I’m glad that I’ve safely arrived Kyoto without any delay.

I like Japanese traditional things and started shopping at Kyoto Station: Kyoto Souvenir Shop Iwai.

Finally, I checked in at our usual hotel in Kyoto, Kyoto Century Hotel and went out for shopping at JR Kyoto Isetan, Kyoto Station.

I know I should shop in Tokyo because no much of difference.

However, when I’m in Tokyo, I always have something to do and I could not find time for no plan shopping.

Usually. the department store welcomes us with cosmetics.

I love the colour that was available last year – one of Les 4 Ombrés series.

I’ve been hunting for it or similar colour and I learned that popular cosmetics can run out fast.

True enough I get one product that is only one left.

I’ve got samples for Lifting!

I shall try them!

I continued shopping for clothes.

I had so much fun shopping and window shopping.

The store closed at 8 pm so we had no choice but stop shopping.

We had Kyoto cuisine at Manju, Underground Shopping Area Porta, Kyoto Station.

Kyoto Craft Beer

And Kyoto Seasonal Set.

We enjoyed a slow walk back to hotel after dinner by looking at Kyoto Iconic Buildings.

Kyoto Station, Central Exit.

Kyoto Tower

I love visiting Kyoto and I never get board!
