You Mee

Sorry for not updating my blog for few days.

I am simply busy with work and down with a cold.

I feel much better now.

Today, I received a gift box from Malaysia.

Tadahhhhh

A box of newly developed Malaysian style instant noodles!

There are Penang Prawn Noodles, Green Curry Noodles (Dry), Sanbal Chili Fried Noodles (I think this is Mee Goreng) and Plain Noodles.

I tried Penang Prawn Noodles tonight. Very shrimpy, Yammy!

Birthday Eve

It’s my birthday eve.

I had been handling a project which is held in March around my birthday; therefore, I couldn’t enjoy or celebrate my birthday for 15 years.

This year, the project is handled by other colleague so my mind is in peace.

I also had wonderful surprises today.

My friend sent me early birthday wishes with hearty words which made me smile.

And after helping my boss’s wife for some translation, she returned to office with a surprise.

It’s so sweet of her and thanked Boss for a nice (I mean NICE) birthday gift.

I was thinking of getting a lipstick for coming Spring and this is the shade of colour that I was thinking of!

Thank you Mr. And Mrs. Boss.

And tonight, went to dinner with my choice of food and restaurant: my favorite French Restaurant Aux Six Arbres, Roppongi.

It’s a nice Birthday Eve ever!

Be Lated Valentine Chocolates

During office hour I received a call from delivery man.

According to him, he managed to enter my apartment building so he asked my permission to leave boxes in front of my door.

I was expecting two kinds/dozens of mineral water for hot drink and purely drinking that I ordered through Amazon.

I told him it’s okay to leave there because these are water.

Then he continues, “what about chocolates?”

I was silent because I didn’t order any chocolates.

He quickly continues, “I will leave it in a mail box so please check it later.”

I thanked him and wondered.

Not many people knows my home address.

Furthermore, in Japan, women give chocolates to confess/express their feeling to men.

So it’s odd for me to receive chocolates.

I returned home and check the mail box.

Yes, there is a box of chocolate with a letter.

Chocolates are from an old couple that I had dinner with at Year-End with my mutual friends.

This is a box of Jacques Torres Chocolate New York.

A couple were saying they planned to visit their daughter who currently works in New York during the dinner.

It’s so sweet of them to bring a box of chocolates for me from New York!

These chocolates are sweet, delicate and sensitive and I love them every bites!

Thank you!

Supplement Warning

The supplement supposed to help me burning fat; however, my body was too tired and the supplement stimulated the wrong nerves: sympathetic nerves.

On the other hand, my body was too tired; therefore, my body reacted to activate parasympathetic nerves, making my body unbalanced.

I was fine despite busy schedule till yesterday, but I couldn’t take it whatsoever today.

I felt too tired and emotional.

I sympathize people around me today.

I’m thankful to my physical therapist who unwind my body and solve the mystery what’s happening to my body by explaining to me.

He is knowledgeable.

If you want to take a supplement with capsaicin, you need to be physicaly strong.

In my case, I stop taking supplements and try to watch what I eat.

Delivery of Fresh Tuna

I received fresh tuna directly from a fisherfamily’s boat!

Recently, we became friends in Kushimoto, Wakayama.

They are fisherfamily (not only men, family) and catch Kihada Maguro (Yellowfin Tuna).

It’s so nice of them to send me fresh tuna!

I had Sashimi tonight and I could say it’s fresher than Tsukiji!

Arigatogozaimasu, Aiko san & Family!
