Food Sampling by Choco

This morning we stopped by at Choco’s favorite place – GREENDOG Roppongi – to get his favorite treats – chewing bones.

The store is conducting food sampling and Choco tried it.

I asked for a sweet potato cracker with all four flavors: sheep kidney, pork cheese, salmon and vegetables.

He seems to enjoy it every much.

He finished it!

I bought him sweet potato crackers and salmon for change.

Enjoy Choco! XOXO

Typhoon 10

Typhoon 10 is passing Western Japan.

It is non-recorded Japanese summer holiday season this week.

We call it Obon and Chinese call this Ghost Festival.

This is not stated as Japanese national holidays on the calendar though many companies and factories close during this period.

Japanese Government doesn’t support any religion; however, Obon is one of important Buddhist ceremonies and majority of Japanese are Buddhists.

Japanese corporates close during this season so that employees can freely take a break.

The week is ending and so as Summer Holidays.

Many people plan to return to Tokyo from their hometowns on Friday and weekends.

Due to this large sized typhoon, flights and trains (Shinkansen) stopped the service to avoid any coming disasters such as blackout.

According to the news, people started to return earlier to Tokyo by changing their plans.

The clouds are moving fast in Tokyo as well.

A frog is also surprised with this weather.

He couldn’t move. hahaha

Weekend Trip to Malaysia (Day 4)

Time flies…I’m going back to Tokyo today….

I’ll miss the Club Lounge and Malaysian Food.

I was looking at the hotel restaurants’ promotion flyer at the room and it gave me a craving of Char Kway Teow.

I’m glad that the hotel served Char Kway Teow for breakfast today! Yeah!

I enhanced my Nasi Lamak with sunny side up egg and chicken curry. fufufu

I was introduced to Malaysian delicacy today: Malaysian Soft Boiled Egg with Kaya Butter Toast.

Kaya is coconut spread.

We add soya sauce and pepper to soft boiled egg and dip Kaya toast.

It’s nice to have it with egg york! Yammy!

I didn’t have much time after breakfast.

It’s time to head for the airport. Oh No!

Sayonara Traders Hotel…. it’s a nice hotel to stay in.

It has a nice view of Twin Tower, nice Bar, spa and service!

I’ll be back one day; perhaps, When I decide to have another Honeymoon Vacation with my BFF!

I reached to the airport…. quickly checked in and we had our drinks at the Old Town White Coffee.

Drinks are nice but I didn’t want to finish my drink.

I went in 15 mins before my boarding time because I wasn’t ready to go.

I wasn’t ready but I had to force myself.

I walked through till my seat.

That’s how the time was tight. hahaha

My seat is consider as an Aisle Seat because my desk is inside, next to the window and my seat is at the Aisle side though that is only seat.

Sayonara Kuala Lumpur; Sayonara Malaysia.

I read ELLE Japan and continued watching the movie where I left it on the way to Kuala Lumpur: the Avengers Endgame.

I’m not an Avengers fan, but enjoyed the movie.

Perhaps. I should try other Avengers series.

I had a nice Japanese lunch by Zipangu, Shangri La Hotel.

I start watching Japanese movie – Kingdom – but I could not finish it.

It is interesting movie so I should find a way to watch the rest.

I should check NETFLIX, Amazon Prime Video and JCOM On-Demand (cable TV) for the availability of the movie.

In between, I also enjoyed in-flight shopping.

This is ANA limited edition of a collection of Hakuhodo Cosmetics Brush in Sakura design.

These brushes are brushes that I use and a carrying case is convenient for travel and even daily use.

I ended my weekend trip to Malaysia by safely landed at the Haneda Airport.

The trip was short, but quality was very high!

It was definitely worth going!

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 Рone of Les 4 Ombr̩s 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!
