Celebrating Birthdays (13 April 2019)

I invited my school mates and we all celebrated BIRTHDAYS.

I need to spell birthdays with s because we celebrated my birthday on 3 March, other friends’ birthday on 15 March and 7 April and Choco’s on 15 April.

We prepared a birthday cake with a birthday plate without name.

We sang birthday song starting for me, then I brew candles; lit candles and sang a birthday song for other friends…and for Choco, too!

He couldn’t have a bite but he seems interested in a Joel Robuchon cake!

I cooked Chinese for five for dinner and they cleared all.

Time flys and we chatted past 11 pm.

It was fun to reunited!

I shall plan again for Summer…?

Hosting Lunch for My Friends on 7 April 2019

I invited my friends for Ohanami (Sakura Viewing) Party.

My parents arranged dinner on 6 April 2019; therefore, I could not use the kitchen on the previous day.

I managed serving food by Costco delicatessen.

I usually cook, but I didn’t have time to cook for 11 of us this time.

I have been wanting to try Costco Party so I tried it for this day.

I also used paper plates.

It was like picnic in house. hahaha

I also ordered drinks on Amazon to make a drink bar.

The above photo is showing partial drinks.

This was the actual drink bar.

Wr met at 1 pm and they left after 9:30 pm.

I had fun and I hope they did, too.

Sakura Viewing

It is the best time for enjoying viewing Sakura in Tokyo.

We are having guests for Sakura viewing; we took guests to my favorite breakfast place: La Pain Quotidien, Tokyo Midtown Roppongi.

While having a breakfast, I read the electrical board…

Tokyo Midtown Roppongi is celebrating its 12th Anniversary today.

On that note, Chandon will start give 500 glasses of rose champaign at 11:00 am.

We waited and got a glass.

After enjoying a glass of champagne, we went to Nogi General House.

We returned to home and received more guests.

Eight of us had a lunch box from Akasaka Yushoku and a dessert from Sun Fruits, Tokyo Midtown Roppongi.

Some guests left after lunch; but Mom and guests continued chatting.

We ordered Dean & Deluca’s Party Set for dinner to relax at home and continued chatting.

The party set is just nice for five of us.

Mom and guests continued chatting till late night.

What an energy!

Flowerly Saturday

My Sensei (teacher) reopened flower arrangement class at her house, Kichijoji.

It’s a nice town and there are many small cafes and stores.

Kichijoji has been introduced on TV, but this is my first time to visit the town.

Sensei’s house is built at Taisho jidai (era); it’s about 100 years old.

There are many vintages or antiques here and there.

Old glass…

Old furniture…

Old clock…

It was fun to arrange with classmates and Sensei.

We had tea time after the arrangement to catch up on each other.

On the way back to the station, we took a street where there are many cafes and shops.

Vintage Shops

Venetian Glass Shop.

Kichijoji Petit Mura (Village): there are a cat cafe and few stores.

We tried Sake sampling.

We had tea break at Sensei’s house, but it wasn’t enough so we continued at Mi Cafeto, Kichijoji Station. hahaha

After enough chatting, I took Inogashira Line back to Shibuta.

For dinner, we (Mom and Mom’s friend) went to have Hitsumabushi (eel and eel porridge) at Maruya, Tokyo Midtown Roppongi.

Hitsumabushi is Nagoya speciality; of course, this restaurant is originated from Nagoya.

We went one floor down to HARBS to get few cakes back home.

These cakes were nice: Sakura Cake and Mille Crepe.

It was a nice day.

I visited a new town – Kichijoji, participated in my favorite flower arrangement class, nice tea and dinner with friends and family.

Vernal Equinox Dayi

Usually, my office doesn’t follow Japanese holiday, but we closed today. Yeah.

I appreciate this break because I am tired.

I went to my hair salon to get a hair dryer and iron: REPRONIZER 4D PLUS.

I tried this at Salon before and my hair felt so smooth after using it, especially straight iron.

I have wavy hair that is not in fashion but gives impression of damage hair.

However, after using this hair iron which won’t damage my hair because of its technology and special material — ceramic, my hair is so straight (no sign of wavy) and smooth!

It surely drew my attention.

I was told the more I use the more my hair get straighter and healthier.

I decide to get one.

Simultaneously, I was looking for a nice hair dryer.

It might give me multiple effect. hahaha

I waited to buy these for five days till today for 5 times Point Day at Roppongi Hills.

I save points to get a voucher for my beauty salon. hahaha

Today, we received a guest who is 91 years old, fit and wise.

In fact, I enjoy talking to her.

She brought us various kind of sweets for our afternoon tea.

Guess who also enjoys her company.

She will stay with us till Sunday.

What shall we do tomorrow?

Birthday Protein

After massage, I received my birthday protein.

I selected berry flavored protein with orange juice.

To my surprise, it’s delicious!

I’m not a protein person, but I asked about the protein.

ALPRON Berry Berry protein with orange juice is nice!

It’s fruity yet it’s whey protein.

I might order it online.
