Serious Guess for Coming-up Baseball Season

Thursday is done.
Well, only one working day left for March.
In Japan calendar, March is often end of fiscal or academic year.

Thus, next day is going to be quite busy for many people in Japan except me!

Still I am between projects. Not busy at all and all freedom is mine for now.
Had a client meeting in this afternoon and seems to be moving forward to realize another project.
That is not that bad sign.

After work, I went out to pick up something:

At Barney's New York.
Finally, my winter coat is new and replaced.
Too late to this winter… but surely for next.

Cannot wait… tomorrow when new ball season is to open.

Here is my guess for the race:

1. Hiroshima Carp
2. Tokyo Giants
3. Yokohama DeNA Baystars
4. Osaka Hanshin Tigers
5. Nagoya Chunichi Dragons
6. Tokyo Yakult Swallows

I want to support Dragons more than that above guess.
Though, doesn't look too good. Unlikely.
I will watch the season-opening game on TV tomorrow for sure.

Did You Ever know?

Friday is over… now extended weekend is ahead! Yay!
Extended weekend is until Monday - which is national holiday called "Adult Day."
It's celebration for those who turn 20 years old joining to the adult world or society as legal age.

Work for the day was okay… everything was under control.

MoonFlower and I got together around 2000hrs. Bad timing because it is everyone's dinner time.
Almost all restaurants that we tried to go in were full! No luck?
Well, we found one place… not too far from home. Soba plate.

Food was good as always. I had Japanese sake tonight.
Soba was great closing dish for the night.

On the way home (short walking), picked up some drink at the convenience store:

Coca Cola PEACH. New stuff, obviously. Limited time? Taste?
I usually do not drink coke but I took this as exception because it seemed interesting.
Yep, it was interesting including its taste.

Not sure that this is Japan only product. You know?

Coffee to Alcohol for the Day

Today, nothing scheduled until 18:45.
It means that I needed to seek what to do until then. Entirely up to myself.
Another boring day it was.

Well, at least I accomplished minor things like schedule sheet creation for new project due up.

Though, all major works are still left behind... intentionally. Well, you can call me lazy ass.
I was. Really.
You know, if you have too much time, you probably cannot push yourself too much. That is my case.

I have to put myself in rush mode by some urgent request or whatever. Otherwise, everything is darn slow.
Please let me know if I can be very productive under such no pressure circumstance.


Went in a cafe on the way to work for breakfast.
I should have had to choose doughnuts instead of sandwich!!! Hahaha.
Good coffee, though.

In fact, I buy coffee beans at this coffee stand, nowadays.

Work gets done with 2 meetings which took place at night.
Then didn't go home straight. Bad intension.
Coffee didn't last til the end of day… and something different was definitely demanded. Yup.

Alcohol amount is not more than required. Just right. Though, quite amount of time has been consumed, already.
When rushed into nearby train station, nothing was waiting but just simple sign said "last train has departed."
Oh boy.

Thus, I decided to walk home… not sure how much in distance I walked then.
Yeah, walk started around 1am…
It was surely interesting walk for me to see the life in the middle of the night like that. Very urban Tokyo life there was.

Last Day of the Holidays

Last day - the holiday season is almost over.
Tomorrow, I have to resume the work… yeah, everyone is back to work!
However, there is some exception.

MoonFlower resumed working from today. Oh what a pity… she has to work one day earlier.

Thus, I have a free day today, completely! Hahaha.


Car wash is done in the afternoon.


Early evening, I came to kitchen and washed rice for cooking.
Yeah, it is so rare that I do some preparation for any meal like that. Hahaha.
Since MoonFlower is at work and I am free, she asked me to help at least doing such. No problem!

So different kind of washings are done today.

New Year Resolution 2018

I should have stated what I think for now… it is new year resolution 2018… here they are!

- Work: 12 site visits total 98 days are contracted for this year's project

Just completed one project last month… single contract covered up to 15 locations for consultation then.
Well, this year… similar to last year… same mission but visiting 12 locations this year.
Total 98 days is expected. Last year, it was 120 days. Therefore, physical burden is somewhat less this year.

- Car: Are we going to buy new car?

This is a big question. Probability is yet high, I presume.
However as you know, I do not have any final answer. I have to depend upon MoonFlower for such big decision making.
Though, following 4 cars are the candidates… at least for now:

20180103_3 20180103_4

Mercedes-Benz C-class and Audi A5 Sportback

20180103_5 20180103_6

Jaguar XE and Toyota Camry

I guess, Toyota Camry has least chance. Thus, 3 import brands are possible and real candidates.
Will see if we are really going to buy a new car or not.
Nothing wrong with current car - Alfa Romeo Guilietta. She runs great and I still like it.

At the same time, MoonFlower may insist that we should go for new car to enjoy as much while we're active in everyday life.
I see the point.
Will see how that would go for us.

- Movie going: 30+ movies for 2018

Since having moved to a place near the movie theater, I fully took advantage of such environment and went to see 30 movies last year.
Well, this year would be going to be similar. I bet that I would go 30+ movies this year.
Budget for movie-going is already planned. Just a matter of finding time for movies!

- Go back to Ogaki for seeing mother

This year I should plan to go back to Ogaki to see my mother more often. She lives alone and this is a concern.
I know that she lives in comfortable life cycle and environment. She is healthy as could be.
Though, being alone is not that simple thing and I intend to go back as often. Let's say, once every quarter. How about that?

More on my resolution list. Not going to disclose all.
For most important thing, I should stay healthy and have fun as much with family. That is it!
Let's keep smiling.
