Hello, everybody!

Here's the new report. Finally. ^^ Yay. So, what did we do on Tuesday? Basically we checked out some shopping opportunities. ^^" First I wanted to visit Akihabara. I've never been there, so I wanted to seehow it feels. So right after having breakfast we set out towards Akihabara. Fortunately we didn't have to take the Yamanote line. Basically I love riding it, because it brings you just about everywhere, but the downside is that it brings people everywhere, so if the distance is a bit longer it'll take forever to get where you want to be. So, instead we simply took the Chuo line, which conveniently stops at Akihabara.

Lots and lots and lots to see...Collapse )

Hello, everybody!

I'm a bit late with this post. ^^" So there's a lot to write. Let's see how far I get. I simply decided to get something done, seeing how I totally can't sleep any longer at 6am. ^^" I always go to bed very early - or more like I simply fall into it and fall asleep at 8pm the latest. So I wake up very early. I'm still feeling the time difference, so I very quickly grow tired again, but I'll try to pull through this entire day so I can enjoy the days more easily. ^^

Hello, everybody!

Today is a day of mixed feelings for me. I'll go into detail a bit later. First off, today wasthe first day of actual sight seeing. Now, I really like sights, but I'm not used to being so... well, physically busy all the time. ^^" It was a really nice sights day, though, which is very encouraging.

So many feelingsCollapse )

Hello, minna-san!!!

It's time for the traditional post from Vienna. As usual my aunt is being supportive and lets us stay at her place for the night. Thank you for having us. m(__)m  It's been a long day, but curiously, while I was really tired this morning now I feel a bit sleepless. ^^" Right after today'S shift at work we got our luggage and then made our way to the station. My mother packed a smaller suitcase this year, which is nice, because it's easier to handle. It doesn't "drive" so easily, though, but I'm just gonna handle that one for the main part.

Altogether I feel like we have way too much luggage. But then, the weather forecast keeps changing daily so I'm still not sure what kind of weather we're going to have in Tokyo. ^^" Well, what to do? SImply pack everything that you might be needing, of course. XD There's just one thing that I totally forgot: an SD card reader for my PC. I already have three of them at home - no shit - and it feels like a kind of tradition already too that I rush into an electronic market to get one of those so I can upload pictures to my daily blogs. ^^

During my late summer stay in Japan I was very lazy with the blog, but I am definitely going to write a proper one this time around and I've also decided that I want to write in detail about the food we're going to eat. :D With pics, because I got the card reader. ^^ As you might have noticed I'm also trying to work some song titles into the post headers. Let's see how well I'll be able to do it. ^^ Tonight is already not exactly accurate, because the bright red suitcase is the one that actually stayed at home and mine is orange. It sounded nice, though, so I decided to write it like this. ^^

I was really proud, though, because I really packed everything else, even my Japanese hair straightener. Of course, if you pack all of your bed clothes into the suitcase you're already checking in, you're still left with basically nothing to wear at your aunt's place. ^^" Well, it's just for tonight and I have everything else, like toothpaste and a toothbrush (which I also bought on the way to my aunt's appartment, because I kept pondering forever whether I should take the electric toothbrush or a "manual" one so ultimately I didn't pack either) and whatever else I might be needing tonight I can borrow.

Now I'm actually tired. ^^" So I'm gonna finish this post now, because I know that in about half an hour I'm gonna be all awake again. XD Please look forward to the next posts. So, have a nice day/night, everybody!!! <3<3<3

Cheers!!! ^______^

Hello, folks!

It's been such a loooooong time since I wrote anything in here, right? I wonder if anyone is even still reading. But I wanted to write a proper journal during my next trip to Japan and so it's only fit to start with a warm-up. ^^ So, yeah, I'm going to be in Tokyo again. :D My mother and I are going to arrive on Friday next Week. ^___^ The journey is going to go to Kyoto and to Nagasaki. I'm very curious about this new destination. ^__^ Of course, we're hoping to have the cherry blossoms open for us while we're there. <3

On the 23rd of March it's going to be Endless SHOCK. I can hardly wait. \(*^ o^*)/

This time around I want to write in more detail about the food, including pictures. So, maybe someone will like what's posted here.

To everybody, I love you all!!! <3

Hello, everybody!

It’s been ages since I’ve actively done anything around here. I apologize, I’m really busy and there’s a lot going on, but I wanted to share some news. These past few months have been very intense on several levels, but I’m feeling fine for the main part. I’m working full time now, which is fantastic for me, but also very time consuming. ^^” I enjoy my work a lot, though, and I’m glad that I can work the full time schedule.

So, what’s new?

I wrote about a year ago how I wanted to start a dieting project.  I’ve been doing it almost all the time ever since. Lost 30kg by now altogether. Last week I tried to set a new pace and try to eat pasta and rice again more regularly and even allow myself some milk and cheese. I wanted to see if I could balance it well to keep the weight that I have now. Something strange happened, though. I found that after about two days of carbohydrate diet I felt no desire to eat the stuff again for a while. So, while it didn’t do anything about my weight, I found that I don’t really want the stuff anymore. It makes you sleepy after eating and generally more lax. So I’ll keep sticking with the program for the main part and only eat the “heavy” stuff when I really feel a lot like it, which apparently isn’t very often.

It’s interesting, while I always enjoy to have one day on which I can eat at leisure, I don’t need that kind of food on a daily basis anymore. It makes me feel slow and lazy. For now I’m not aiming for further weight loss, though. I’ve been doing really good for about a year now, so I’ll enjoy some liberties for a while now, before going back to a tight program and shape into the form that I desire.

Lately I haven’t done any fanfiction. I do feel sorry about it, because I always enjoy writing it, but my work is not only time consuming, but also very “screen-heavy”, so it’s often hard to find any kind of motivation to sit in front of a screen again after work, especially after switching to full time. It makes me kind of sad, because I have the artistic drive, but often find it too exhausting to actually write my thoughts down. Well, there is something that has me a bit more motivated again lately. I have a new writing project running now. I plan to turn one of the stories I have created into an actual original fiction story that I would also love to see released as a book. I am currently working a lot on a good story-line and I’m bringing in new characters, changing some that the story already has, thinking up a round up for the universe, etc. So, there’s a lot to do. I hope you guys will wish me luck with this new project. I don’t plan on stopping to write fanfiction. When the muse hits me, I’ll definitely write, but it’ll be a lot less than what I’ve done before – apparently.

I just remembered that I should also upload some new files to my archive. Please be patient with me, I'll share new things when I can. <3

I hope you guys are doing well and that you’re enjoying yourselves, no matter what you do. Anyone to go and see Koichi in SHOCK? ^^ I’d love to go so much, but I’m not sure if it’ll be possible this year. I’m aiming for September, though. Maybe I can go. ^__^ And I want to see KinKi again this year too! I missed it so much last year. T___T I have to try to get a few days off at work. ^_~

Cheers everybody!!! <3

Hello, minna! :D

So,about today. As planned we visited Kamakura today. Well, it was planned that we go because we were supposed to have sunny weather, which did not quite happen, but the slightly cloudy sky and the wind were just right to make it a nice experience. At first we had trouble finding the right train that would bring us to Kamakura. I had thought of taking the Seibu Line, but then I was told that the Railway Pass doesn't cover the line, so we decided to take the JR Shinjuku Line instead. Took us about an hour to find our way around. ^^" Well, along the way I found the Mr. Donut shop again. I want to have breakfast there tomorrow. Today we had breakfast at the hotel, which is okay, but I want to go out for breakfast once.

On with the story. The ride to Kamakura took about an hour. I didn't remember that it takes so long. ^^" But it was alright. We got seats on the train, which made things quite comfortable. Once in Kamakura we wanted to go for shrine venue. The guide said that Komachi-dori leads right to it. So we tried Komachi-dori. Boy, that is a shopping street. We strolled through a lot of nice shops and bought gifts for friends and family, and some little somethings for ourselves, like a new umbrella that gets lovely patterns when it gets wet and also jewelery. It was a very nice stroll and I was so happy, because I think that is just what my mom wanted to do. So we spent quite some time there.

In the end we didn't make itto the shrine anymore. It was too far for my mom to walk and so we decided to get back instead and have lunch before visiting the Daibutsu and Hase dera. I had Donkatsu for lunch. :D Yummy. ^_^ Unfortunately my mom keeps having trouble with her stomach. I hope it's going to get better soon. As for me, I'm not used to eating anything I want at any time that I want. It's a nice change. ^^ But naturally only for holidays.

After finishing our lunch, we headed for the Daibutsu. Just as I remembered it's a breathtaking sight. It's so wonderful to see that huge statue out in the nature, towering over everything. We took our time to inspect the garden as well - and the souvenier shop, of course. We didn't spend too much time there, though, because we still wanted to move on to Hase dera. That too is an incredibly beautiful sight. The garden alone is a sight for itself. It's a lot more interesting during a warm season, of course. I very much enjoyed learning this new side of the temple. As we strode up to the observation deck we saw the most beautiful flowers and butterflies. The water that runs through the area gives such a relaxing feeling. ^^ As we came up to the deck, there were people praying at the small temple building. So we only had a quick look and then changed to the main hall. I had almost forgotten how impressive that one is. Another big statue, all golden and beautifully crafted. Downright wonderful.

We kept walking around the area a bit, enjoying the view and the evening air. However, soon after we had to leave again, because the temple was closing for the day. Feeling pretty spent we decided to get back to the station and return to Tokyo. That was a good decision too. On our way back we already felt so tired. -_- And we had to wait for 30 minutes for our train to arrive. Well, we found seats at the station, so we could relax a bit. On the way back I kept marvelling at hoe many people were on the train with us on the way back to Tokyo. We only just managed to save ourselves a couple of seats. And along the way more and more people kept getting in. Well, naturally in central Tokyo people will get on and off frequently, but I was surprised, because there was so much going on at smaller stations.

Once we were finally back at our "home" station, I made a tiny detour to our sweets store. I bought a pack of chocolate nuts and another pack of chocolates. I had a pre-packed set of Soba tonight, because my mom didn't want to go out for eating dinner, so I just took something that's ready to eat. And some chocolate Macadamia nuts. Yummy. :D

Right now I'm watching Fuji TV. It's Yamapi on air. XD I don't think I've seen that one. It looks interesting, though. Much more so than other stuff he's done lately (lately meaning anything later than 2008). But I really have to get some rest now. I'm totally spent and I want to get up early tomorrow. Since the weather is supposed to be exhausting, we're aiming for a visit at Asakusa pretty early and then probably Meiji Shrine around noon... and who knows what else we can do around that area. XD

Well, for now this is it. I'm so sorry that I can't provide pics, but my mom is already sleeping again and I have to wrap this up. I aim for us to get home earlier tomorrow, so I'll have the time to do things more properly.

See you around! <3
