Disappointment.

Now I have to get ready for tomorrow.

Ball Game!

Good presentation that I delivered today.
Prior to that, there were lots of concerns. Though, turned out that it was a good meeting with head of business.

At least my attire should be like professional one.

Then I showed up to the ball park.
Since friend called me up for a free ticket to a ball game tonight.

Jingu ball stadium… where the Yakult Swallows dominates as home ground.

League leading Hiroshima Carp seemed in control of the game tonight…

Carp swept Swallows tonight by 5-2.
Great game and fun night!
It was surely awesome seat!!!

1st Sun Rise for 2016!

A Happy New Year to you all!!!
Woke up around 6:40 to see this 1st sun rise of the year.
Perfect weather… actually unusual warm climate here in Tokyo.

OSECHI - special / traditional box of Japanese traditional cuisine for new year celebration.

20160101_2

Beautiful, aren't they? Taste, too.
This box is for two - MoonFlower and I celebrated New Year with this food for breakfast and supper today.

20160101_3

1st prayer - Taishaku Temple.
We decided to go on foot to that place.

20160101_4

Lots of street shops welcoming the people coming for 1st prayer.
And this is proof that we walked…

20160101_5

11 kilometers we walked. About 7 miles. See!

20160101_6

No drive for the day. Just record keeping. Odometer of my car is at 18,400 kilometers. Or 11,433 miles.
Last year alone - my can ran about 5,000 kilometers or 3,100 miles.
Below the average, I guess. Hahaha.

20160101_7

Opened a bottle of sake for supper.
"Dassai" sparking sake - my favorite kind and brand, actually!

20160101_8

Great taste. Perfect celebration for new year with this drink for sure.

Long walk is good exercise. Unusual activity on New Year's day. Must be good sign for 2016.
I really believe that.

Star Wars Checked Out!

What's up, folks!
My apology about such a long time silence. Yes, I have been alright.
Just being lazy along with many things to do.

Finally, I cleaned up lots of things including this blog data which has been pilled up and pain.
Now things are in order and I can promise that I can come back to this blog much more often for update.
I am quite thankful that those who (many people, actually) kept coming back to this place.

Today I went out to see Star Wars along with my cousin. First outing with him… interesting experience.

The movie was pretty good coming along with lots of homage to predecessors, particularly Episode IV.
Am sure that this is great for fans. Yes, I am definitely one of them who enjoyed such in this movie!

Episode VIII is coming up when? Surely not next year… in 2017? Cannot wait.
The way the Episode VII concludes is the way people want more and more of the story.
You know what I mean. Star Wars really come with great tactics for sure.

MoonFlower is now finishing the work for 2015.
She and I will get busy to be ready for great New Year's eve and new year.
Let me see what is on my to-do list for 2015 and see what I can do before 2016.

Like I said, this blog data is more organized than ever and ready for more writing.
It means that I should come to my desktop at least once everyday for update just to make sure that you are no longer disappointed.
Will do what I can do! Winking

Suntory Dream Match 2015 - Baseball

Good friend of mine handed a free baseball ticket for tonight and I rushed to the Tokyo Dome after work.
To be precise, I had to suspend the work for this event.
I asked one of my colleagues to join.

20150803_1

When arrived, the game was at the top of 3rd already.
This is not ordinary professional baseball game.

Sponsored by Suntory for charity, all retired pro came to play a game just tonight. Annual event.

All legends in Japan's pro baseball played… aged mid-30's up to 60's. LOTS of fun.
My friend / colleague loved that game and so did I.
I want to come to see this even next year, too.
