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!

Upper House Election Day

Today, it was the Upper House Election Day.

I thought I can go to the election venue, nearest elementary school, together with Choco for his walk.

I put him a bag and about to enter the venue; then I found the sign.

The election is at the school lunch room; therefore, pet cannot enter.

I had to return for election without Choco because I cannot just leave there.

Today, I took my flower arrangement class by taking a replacement class.

I met my old classmates who is not able to take Saturday Class with us due to her work schedule.

It was a nice surprise to see them.

I had a nice Italian and pizza for dinner at my favorite restaurant: PST Roppongi.

I also enjoy talking to owner chef, Mr. Tamaki.

He adds extra essence to his food.

Apple Support Chat

My iPhone suddenly got broken.

The alarm was silent and thanks to Choco, he woke me up because he wanted to go for a walk.

Though Choco did a good deed, I had to cut his walk to get ready for work.

He looked very disappointed.

I compensated by taking him extra long walk at night.

Well, there was something wrong with a speaker.

My iPhone didn’t play music but making noise when I press the side button.

I thought Apple Support on call is only available after 10 am; then I received a message that Apple Support Chat is available while browsing for the contact number.

I thought I would talk with AI, but the conversation was smooth.

(Later, I found that it was not AI but a human.)

I started chatting.

It concluded I am required to go to Apple Store to get it check-up.

I even made a reservation at Genius Bar, Apple Store Ginza at 11:50 am via chat.

My boss was scheduled to leave office to attend a meeting in Yokohama at 11 am and I could use my lunch hour.

It was perfect.

Based on our chat history, it didn’t take much time to diagnosis my iPhone.

The body/hardware and software didn’t have any problem but we could still hear noise.

With further checking, the technician identified the problem around the SIM card.

I had to change the body and I received a used new iPhone on the spot.

It took hours to recover my setting, but to diagnosis and to receive a replace phone was fast.

Apple Support Chat is not bad.

I could quietly chat and to make a reservation at Genius Bar quietly while working. hahaha

Scale for FiNC

I bought a scale designed for FiNC at FiNC Mall.

This scale would be connected to FiNC app via Bluetooth to record more than ten (10) elements such as weight, BMI, fat, body age, etc.

It saves me from typing manually and I can obtain more information about my body.

Choco, it’s not for you. hahaha

Tokyo Midtown Roppongi Loves Summer 2019 (Suntory)

Suntory is sponsoring events at Tokyo Midtown Roppongi under the theme of Loves Summer.

My niece and I enjoyed cooling down at the stream.

The roof changes in various colours such as blue, green, pink, white, etc.

Choco waited for us patiently. Good Boy!

The park turns into a nice Japanese Style Opened Air Restaurant: Roku Midpark Lounge.

We can purchase drinks and food to dine here.

Soon I will try their Japanese craft gin – Roku.

There is a light and mist digital art show at the garden of the Tokyo Midtown Roppongi.

I watched it with Choco and Choco seems to enjoy it, too. hahaha

Our evening walk would be fun.

Tokyo Midtown Summer Loves 2019 (Stamp Rally)

My niece came over to spend long weekend with me.

We participated few programmes at Tokyo Midtown Roppongi under the theme of Tokyo Midtown Summer Loves 2019.

We visited an exhibition introducing beauty of creature and arts with these beauty at 21_21 Design Sight.

We found a stamp rally table so we decided to participate in collecting six stamps of insects to gat a glittering sticker sheet at Tokyo Midtown Roppongi.

We visited six places to collect six stamps.

Unfortunately, a sticker sheet is for children only and I couldn’t get one.

My niece happily put them on her favorite Precure (the Pretty Cure).
