Cafe

Finally so?!

My weekend started at a local optician store.
Examination took place in the morning.
Nothing wrong with me, though.

It was all for these:



Yeah, contact lenses. Now? Why? Hahaha.
I know, people around my age start avoiding such… right?
I go totally the opposite. Hahaha.

Examination was fine and green light for contact lenses are officially issued.

Now, I wear contact lenses without hassle. Pretty good stuff!!!





Tonkatsu or deep fried pork was lunch with MoonFlower.
This place is newly opened last month and tons of people lined up for lunches and dinners.
It was our luck to come to have lunch after waiting for 20 minutes or so.

Great stuff! I definitely come back again.



Cafe in Shimo Kitazawa in the afternoon. It was MoonFlower's favorite.
She needs to pick up new Japanese ceramics from the gallery within the cafe.
Yeah, came here before… actually several times, already.



My outfit, accessory, and shoe for the day. Hahaha.



Not coffee, not tea… Sode with ice cream.





































Big dinner took place at the end for the day.
It was Japanese and French fusion dinner course.
Was pretty darn dishes. MF was quite satisfactory.

Bill was not that small, either, though. Oops.

Cafe Hopping: "DIXANS" in Ningyocho

Still Tuesday?! Unbelievable!
I feel like would have been Thursday or so.
What's wrong with me then?



Showed up to a cafe called "DIXANS" in Ningyocho area.



Really like the view from the window.



Brown sugar toast along with coffee made my day for sure.
This toast was really good. I may come back sooner.

Still Tuesday, huh.
Will see how I can survive through the whole week…

Busy Saturday































Latte Art Coffee Shop

Extended weekend is now and finally over!!!
Was it good for you all?! I hope it is.
For me, last day of such dedicated to my family… as usual.

MoonFlower wanted to go to some place… so desperately.
It was a cafe… but extraordinary one.
Called "Hat Coffee" near Asakusa, Tokyo. We took subway up to there… but had to wait for several hours.

Very popular place for youngsters.





The reason that MoonFlower wanted to come to this place simply because of this tiny stuffed animal / doll.
This place's speciality is of latte art. Shop takes ANY request and draw latte art on your ordered coffee.
Everything is just for Instagram, right? Hahaha.



Customers even can be observing the latte art creation just in front.

DONE!



Two cups of them



Tons of girls lined up for such services…
Well, needless to mention, MoonFlower is very satisfied and extremely happy.
That made my day as well! Hahaha.

Annual Reunion

Weekend is now coming to an end… TOO FAST! Hahaha.
New bag shown in yesterday's blog is quite good… better than I thought.
I started using it today… no negative points. All good!

I have better picture of it here:



Very fancy!



Went to Aman Tokyo - one of luxury hotel in Tokyo for afternoon tea with friends.



Menu - long list of sweets.



Soup? Juice? Yet, starter.







Big afternoon tea tower for three people

It was fun and great catch up with old friends who I worked with a long time ago.
Great to see they are doing just fine and having great lives out there.
It was longer than several hours; though, made me feel like just a matter of half an hour or so.

You know what I mean.

Great time really passes by.



Those ladies brought some gifts to me. Thank you! Y'all are just sweet.

This is annual event for three of us… this is 3rd consecutive year of doing afternoon tea together.
Surely next year will be another one.

Make it even more difficult

This Friday seemed rather longer.
Why? Things didn't go simply. You know what I mean.

Started "normal" Friday at local cafe called "Berth Coffee."

I finally took good 360-degree picture of the basement where I had coffee and breakfast croissant.



A bit pricey… but I believe that extra cost / premium is for space and atmosphere.

It was flat and okay until then.


Though, look at this.
I ended up with some drinks at late night.



I really had to take drinks after work.
Yeah, I didn't even a half of what I originally planned to do. Things did't go as planned at all.
Too much noises… New tasks are kept coming.

Oh boy.

For next week, things are even more difficult to be taken care of.

Next week is definitely short due to several reasons:

National holiday on Tuesday
Travel to Nagoya on Thursday
Three proposals due Friday

I will definitely get swamped then. Wish me luck!

Cafe "MIKADO" in Nihombashi

Early bird!
Showed up to a cafe for breakfast and some early work.
Yep, I went in there with work PC for sure.

Sort out many emails while eating the breakfast then.

Good start it was… however, didn't meant that I would come to a good end.
How did it all go for the day?!
Hmm, not so bad. Better than I really thought.

Well, now time for weekend.

Still some work remain with no much complaints. It is still yet all under control.
I can still breathe, normally. That is good enough.

Shang-Chi? Coffee?

Big Salad Plate for Health

Went in to a cafe in Kanda Square.
"Point Et Ligne" bakery is quite famous and this is 1st time in 2 months for me.



20210829 POINT ET LIGNE Kanda Square #theta360 - Spherical Image - RICOH THETA





Varieties of breads along with big salad plate.



Needed some fresh vegetables for my health.
I guess, my current eating habit relied upon quick and easy stuff, mainly.
Thus, this is small resistance to the way it is for my own pace of life.

Became full after all. This plate was quite large. I am no longer a big eater!!!

Early Bird for What?

Showed up to a local cafe around 8:30am. Very early for me to start a weekend like this.



Unison Tailor NINGYOCHO - I came here last time when closed. Second time.

Wanted to have this French toast along with iced coffee.

From 10 o'clock, went to haircut. Now got quite short hair because of hot weather.

Stopped by Mitsukoshi again for World Watch Fair.
Checked in at BREGUET for Marina watches.



Cool stuff they are for sure.



Even after returning home, watched talk show live from the Fair.
Interesting topic covers the brand strategies of different groups.

Stayed home at night…

Showed up to Omotesando (shopping district)

Took a train for Omotesando where I walked around for a quite long time today.
Yeah, it was just a matter of walking exercise.



Stopped by Audi House of Progress Tokyo.



Saw this Q4 e-Tron. This is, although, a totally mock-up.
I have never driven any EV ever… I should make a reservation for doing so soon.



Went in to the Spiral Cafe for lunch.



They charged me 900 yen for a cup of coffee.. Oh boy!
But the taste was quite real… I guess, that was serious genuine coffee then.



Another EV - saw Tycan in real life for the 1st time. From Porsche it is.
Hmmm, it is surely nice. But not of my taste.
Too expensive to afford in the first place!



Even though home alone, even opened wine bottle for self-drinking.
Of course, I drank several glasses. Didn't finish the whole bottle tonight.
Hahaha.
