I replaced Mom to accompany Dad to Tokyo Symphony Monthly Concert, Suntory Hall, Akasaka, Tokyo.
F. Liszt: Prelude and Fugue on the name B-A-C-H, S. 260
A. Schonberg: Variations for Orchestra, op. 31
S. Rachmaninov: Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, op. 43
M. Ravel: Bolero
Tonight’s concert was conducted by my favorite conductor: Mr. Jonathan Nott.
He conducted as if he is dancing at Bolero: energetic, passionate and rhythmical!
After the concert, we had Californian Cuisine at Wolfgang Pack Pizza Bar.
We enjoyed food and chatting.
Father-Daugter’s night is not bad.
I clocked out 5 o’clock tonight and went to Azabu-Juban, Tokyo to pick up my car that returned from the auto inspection.
I’ve been driving this car for 13 years and still love it.
Then, went to grocery shopping and ate dinner.
After dinner, went to gym for cycling and reading a magazine for 30 mins.
Took a bath.
Am I productive?
I need to burn negative energy and feeling.
I should burn fat as well. hahaha
Kanda is at downtown Tokyo.
There are many restaurants with history and uniqueness.
First, I had a Dotenabe (Oyster Claypot) at Suishin, Kanda, Tokyo.
This restaurant is a Izakaya type (casual Japanese bar restaurant.)
After this, went to Suntory Whisky Bar at Kanda, Tokyo.
This bar is an old fashion bar.
Many reserved bottles are kept in food lift. hahaha
I had few glasses of Highball (whisky and soda).
Downtown Tokyo is fun♪
The tough part of work is done; I’m glad to know that many participants approached their targets.
The event is opened to public today and tomorrow.
I walked around the venue.
She is an Android at the Play Station area.
She is so real!
Is this a cosplay as well…?
Must be difficult to walk in this costume.
I went to a different hall (Hall 8) to view Konami’s e-Sports event: Winning Eleven (football game).
Wahhhh it’s so real!!!
After 5 o’ o’clock, I became a party person.
I went to Two Rooms in Omotesando, Tokyo.
This place is a nice place to hang out.
There are many people hanging out despite Saturday night and nice view, overlooking Shinjuku’s skyline.
I couldn’t take a photo of the place, but this is THE Place that I should visit again.
First, I went to send my laundry to Laundry Shop Pony.
Then, stopped by Don Quijote (we call it Donki for short) to buy household goods such as detergents, pocket tissue, etc. and boosters: (emergency) Mon Cafe drip coffee, Clorets (gums) and Manan Life Konnyaku (konjak) Grape and Peach Jelly.
I also stopped by at Book 1st, newly opened book store at Roppongi.
It’s very comfortable staying there so I read Scuba Diving Guide and Self Enlightmenr Book: Tado-Ryoku (Multi Task Power).
My short stay at a book store refresh me♪
I went to hair salon this morning because I won’t have any weekend or even a day off in September.
I miss Roku-chan, a cute mascot of this hair salon.
The weather is nice and I finished early.
Now it’s cooler in the morning and evening.
I decided to walk under soft sunshine.
Shops are yet to open at Roppongi Hills.
I enjoy window shopping while I see staffs are busily getting ready to open a shop
I stopped by at my favorite supermarket, Meidi-Ya, to stock up my food for a week.
The other day, I introduced Super Food Granola.
This time, I bought Dorset Cereals (Cranberry, Cherry & Almond) as my emergency food.
I’ll eat this when I’m tired to cook food. hahaha
In the afternoon, I took a nap.
I feel lazy to do anything today.
I knew her from work.
She finished her term in Japan and will return to her country in two weeks.
We never went out privately, but I asked her for a dinner.
We started Robatayaki (charcoal grilled food) dinner at Ginza Hakobune Shizuku at 6 pm.
We had so much fun, so we continued our chat at Tommy Bahama, Ginza.
There is a dining place at Tommy Bahama’s butique.
Cakes and non-alcohol mojito are nice!
I’m going to miss her; we shall keep in touch!
