A YEAR END PARTY

(2011-11-29)
It is the season of a year end party.
Do you have any plans???

My Chinese school already had a party last Saturday.

The party was held at a French restaurant, le 日本食堂(Nihon-shokudo), close to the Sakaisuji-honmachi Station.
I felt a little strange because I thought I would have a traditional Chinese party.

Anyway, I went there.

The party started at 7:00P.M.
13 students and a teacher came to the party.
I haven’t met them before except the teacher, so I was a little nervous.

That concern proved unfounded.

Each guy had each life.
We were talking about our job, the reasons of learning Chinese, our hobbies.

The youngest girl was only 17.
She was a high-school student.
The reason of learning Chinese was that she would write her special skill on a resume.

She was really cute, so I wish she can get a good job.


All of us wrote New Year resolutions on colored paper.
I wrote I would write a journal in Chinese once a week.

I left there around 10P.M.
I had had the really good time.

Gus-buil-shokudo

(2011-11-28)
Have you ever been to Gus-buil-shokudo?

Gus=Osaka Gus
Buil=building
Shokudo-restaurant

It sounds like a company’s cafeteria…

Gus-buil-shokudo has a long history. This building and my father are almost same age.
This building was built in 1935 but the restaurant opened in 1933.

You can read their history at the following address(English).
http://www.osakagas.co.jp/gasbuil/leaflet_eng/index.htm

We had a party there.

The restaurant was not like a cafeteria. It was like a restaurant in a hotel.
A white tablecloth, silver cutlery, room’s waitresses…

The foods were really good.
But they were not like a hotel.
They were like….

Do you remember days of your childhood???
What was the most delicious food???

You can eat the one which you used to want to eat.

So, the most delicious food in this restaurant is ‘rice and curry’.
It is not like curry which your mother cooks.
It is not like curry which you eat at curry restaurants.

It is a little sweet and mild.

Of course, the other foods and wine were good, too.

I will go to eat curry for lunch because it is not so far from my office!!!

8B ROLL

(2011-11-25)
There are many trends in Japan.
For example, a few years ago, the most popular dog is a toy poodle, but now?? I don’t know.

Sweets also have a trend.
A tiramisu, a cream puff, a doughnut, Nata de coco, a Baumkuchen.
Do you remember them???

One of the biggest booms was a cake roll.
Many cake roll shops opened, and then closed.

8B roll is one of those cake shops.
Their specialty is, of course, a cake roll!!!
But I guess their sales are not good lately.

So, they sold discount tickets often.
And I bought it!!!

The ticket included some baked cakes and a cake roll.
And the price is only 1200yen!!!
I will get a lot of weights!!!

By the way, even if the cake roll boom was the past, 8Broll is really good.
They sometimes sell a discount ticket, so I want to buy it sometime.

SAD...

(2011-11-24)
A premium ticket!!

JCB is a sponsor of Tokyo Disneyland.
They sometimes have a special event in Disneyland but it is really hard to get that ticket.

My company uses JCB taxi tickets and pays much money every month to JCB.

This time, JCB gives me a special JCB Disneyland ticket!!!!

I am really happy because I am a Disneyland-holic.
But….
The day of JCB event is on Friday..
Nobody comes with me….

I’m really sad…




WHERE IS MY BEER???

(2011-11-23)
I went to Tokyo for Business trip last week.

On the way home, I bought a can of beer and a lunch box as usual.

Just after I got on the Shinkansen, I put them on my seat and went to a bathroom.

I got back from the bathroom, and I looked at my seat.

Then…..

My beer and my lunch box disappeared!!!!

Nooooooo!
Someone stole my beer!!!!!!!

I looked around my seat but I couldn’t find it…
I was very disappointed.

A few minutes later, I thought something wrong.
Because my jacket also disappeared.

I could agree if someone stole my beer but I couldn’t agree if someone stole my jacket.

I was looking for my beer and my lunch box again.

So, they were waiting for me on another seat!!!(*^_^*)

It was just my mistake….

The taste of the beer was bitter and better than usual.




NEW iPhone

(2011-11-21)
A few weeks ago, I bought a new iPhone.
My old one still worked enough.
However Softbank worked out a campaign of ‘renewal iPhone’ and they made a trade of an old one for a new one for free.
I thought it was a good deal, so I changed my iPhone.

The new one’s screen is clear.
I thought Tatami mats and iPhone should be new.
The new one is a little bigger than the old one.
So, I used to use it with one hand, but now it is a little hard to use it with one hand.

Anyway, it is a good toy for me.
It is really good for killing the time on the train.

A YEAR END HOUSECLEAN!!!

(2011-11-20)
It is a season of a year end houseclean.
Have you already done??

I started a few days ago.

The first thing which I have to do is to sort my belongings.
I mean….
I want to reduce my belongings.

This year I threw out some magazines, some clothes, some toys, etc…
Worn-out T-shirts are, of course, used for houseclean.

Afterwards, I have to move all furniture and clean up the back side of furniture.
I need a lot of energy…

By the way, since I bought a TV stand, I have never moved it.
It is too large for me, so I cannot move it.

But
I want to try to move it this year.

If you help me, please let me know..


MOG

(2011-11-10)
RIMG0012.jpg

Mog is a pancake restaurant.
Their specialty is, of course, a pancake.
Mog Kyobashi was opened about a year ago.
At that time, it wasn’t popular.
But after a magazine introduced Mog, the number of the customers has increased.
When I passed this restaurant, I always saw a long line of customers who were waiting for entering Mog…

Now, the boom has passed.
I can eat pancakes anytime!!!


And finally I visited Mog.
When I visited there, they had a special Halloween menu.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t pumpkin menu. Almost all of them were ‘sweet potato’ taste.
Purple sweet potato ice-cream, sweet-potato fresh cream, sweet potato fry, and so on.
It was really sweet. I was really happy.

And I got a bad ill.
It is ‘I want to go to Mog one more time’!!!

SAKAISUJI CLUB

(2011-11-08)
About a month ago, I went to eat dinner to Sakai-Suji-Club.
October 2nd is my birthday and Mr. I, who is my ex-boss, brings me to eat dinner every year.

I always chose where we will go, and this year, I chose Sakai-Suji-Club.

This building was built about 170 years ago.
It used to be used as a bank but now it is a restaurant.
If you step into the restaurant, you can feel you get back to Taisho Era.

The ceiling is really high, and you can see many carvings on the walls.
I think these types of buildings were one of the dreams of Taisho people.
Of course, I also like to see these types of buildings.
I can feel I became wealthy.

We ate Italian food.
They had Autumn special dinner, so we chose that one.
They used a lot of autumn foods and local foods.

They also had good cheese.
We enjoyed dinner, wine, and cheese.

《IZHISHI CHASTEL》

There were many sightseeing spots in Izushi.
We walked and enjoyed a lot.

We got back to the staion around 3:00P.M., and got on the train, drank a little, and got back to Osaka.

We always go somewhere every year.

The next year, I am not sure I can go.
But I want to go for trip with Kiyomi-chan again.


KINOSAKI & IZUSHI 10/22-LUNCH

(2011-11-06)
Izushi is very famouse for Izushi Soba.
There are many Soba restaurants in Izushi.
Kiyomi-chan & I didn't know which Soba restaurant was good, so we went the restaurant which Yutouya Ryokan's lady recommended.

Soba was really good.
Shinshu Soba is famous, too, but I prefer Izushi Soba.
We ate Soba and, of course, beer!!

KINOSAKI & IZUSHI -10/22-3-

(2011-11-03)
【Takuwan temple】
This temple is famous as Takuan-Osho.
If you are interested in him, please look at the website.

This temple has beautiful gardens.
You can see yellow-green moss there.
The moss seems a little wet, so they reflect the sun's light.
The temple does not put a hand more than required for the garden, so it seems a little motley-looking.
But this ‘motley-looking’ makes us relax.
I like tidy gardens in Kyoto but I also like this garden.

【The Eiraku Kan】
It is an old theater.
It opened in 1901 used for a movie, play, etc.
After TV spread, it closed in 1964.
But people wished to open it again, and in 2008 it opened again.

A lady guided in the theater.
We could see underground of the theater. It was really interesting.
Kiyomi-chan and I stood on the center of stage.
We wanted to mimic a Kabuki actor on the stage, but other customers looked at us, so we couldn’t.

*SAKAGURA


Izushi-resource center

Now, a house is used for a resource center but it was used to be just a house.
This house was owned by a craft worker who made Japanese pan(nabe).

It is a really beautiful house.
I can see gorgeous Ranma, chic Tokonoma, and beautiful gardens.

The house is separated to two parts.
One part is a shop and the other part is a house.

There are many spaces which we can use for taking nap or playing Shogi.
The sunlight is really warm.
I think any Japanese like this type of house.
