My niece

2010.06.03

I went to kanagawa prefecture to see my niece, she was just born yesterday!! She were sleeping peacefully all the time.  It was 2 weeks early but she and her mother are ok.  They are still in a hospital so I had to say good bye. I don’t know when I can see them next…

 I’m very happy to have new family. It’s a special moment just like a nephew’s birth, he’s 3years old now.  In the afternoon we went to a beach which is near their place. It’s very nice view and took some pictures. I enjoying to feel his growth every time I see him. 

I want to be with them more but I didn’t have time. I can’t wait to see them next.

先日、2日に生まれた姪に会いに行きました。昨日生まれたばかりの赤ちゃんに会え、とても幸せな気分です。静かにずっと眠っていました。2週間ばかり早いものの母子共に問題無く安心しました。
まだ、退院出来ない為少し面会し、さよならをしなくてはいけませんでした。
次会えるのはいつかわかりません・・・。

新しい家族が増え、とても幸せです。甥が生まれた時と同じく、とても特別な瞬間です。
彼はもう3歳になります。午後に彼らの住まいの近くのビーチに寄りました。
とても綺麗な景色が楽しめ、写真を何枚か撮りました。

あまり頻繁に会えない為、甥の成長を感じるのがとても楽しいです。
もっと一緒に過ごしたかったのですが、あまり時間が無くとても残念です。
次に会える日が待ちきれません!!

My Top 5 lists of Jiyugaoka ^.^

2010.06.01

Welcome back to Jiyugaoka again, on Sunday I told you about my little trip to the city of freedom “Jiyugaoka”. Today, I want to share my top 5 favorites places and things to do around the city. Let’s get start!!!!

No. 5 Sweet Forests: Enjoy picking your favorite delightful desserts from 8 famous pastissiers

No. 4 Looking for unique spots: It’s fun to walk around and discover unique hiden spot to take a snap shot with friends or your special person.

No. 3 Wandering along “The Green Street”: Just buy some kabab from Doner’s Kabab, originally made by Turkish guy and enjoy having on the porce in late afternoon or stores hopping is also fun thing to do.

No. 2 Stores Hopping: there are so many “Zakka” stores and unique shops around this lovely town, you never know what you will discover. Like 3 stores I visited Art Meter offers various kinds of original arts painted by local artists. Cibone is also famous “Zakka” selling things from cloths to furniture. Velvet Rose is unique clothing and accessories store where imported and handmade products can be found.

No.1 Resting at quiet and peaceful tea house: My favorite place of all time at Jiyugaoka is “Kosoan” tea house, only 10 minutes walking from the station, there is a traditional house combined gallery and cafe together. I love their Matcha Latte and little piece of Japanese dessert. However, if you have enough of greentea, I also recommend English teahouse “St.Chistopher’s” I found by chance. This white tea cafe also offer scone for low-tea and high-tea in the English country ambience.
That’s all my favorite things to do in Jiyuugaoka. I hope that if you have a chance to visit Tokyo, you would not miss this little lovely town.

iPad

2010.06.01

It was a super great new toy for me. I did’t expect an ipad when I was stoped by the Yodobashi camera on Sunday. I just wanted to buy the ink of printer. When I arrived the Yodobashi camera’s Akihabara entrance. The front of stuff said me you may can buy the ipad today so I was just ineresting in his comment. I standed in the line. It was a nice happen. I can buy it no wainting a long time. When I came back Andon, all of stuff was surprised it because it make a phenomenon having it. I am very happy to hearing from them.
Anyway,I make a effort to stadying it every day.
It is my homework.

日曜日、プリンターのインクを買いにヨドバシカメラに行った。入口のエントランスで、係の男の子が、
「今日もしかしたら、ipad 買えるかもしれませんよ。」その一言に火が点いた。
「そんなあ。」
何か行列が、そこかしこにできてるらしいし、「まさかあ。」何て、軽い気持ちでアイパッドがどんなものかも知らないで、一人しか並んでいない列で待っていた。
「買えてしまった。」と言うか、かなりの衝動買い、日曜日は説明書もコピー数枚だけだったし、手順をミスして、ヘルプセンターも五時でクローズ繋がらず、昨日やっと開通。
「やっぱ、すごいわー。」遅まきながら、感動してしまった。
アップル、やっぱ本当に凄い。使ってみて解った。毎日、知らなかった分、感動がヒシヒシと。
「知らないほうがこんなに楽しめる事が、大人になってもあるんだあ。」と、子供の時の気分を久しぶりに味わっている。大人になっても、新しい物に出会えて感動できるチャンスをくれた、アップルに感謝。

Follow my heart to Jiyuugaoka

2010.05.30



Today was cold and cloudy, I thought it would be nice to have a nice coffee after work, so I decided that I would go to Bear-Pond cafe at Shimo-Kitazawa. I took subway Hibiya line and tended to transfer to Chiyoda line to get off at Shimo-Kitazawa station. Unfortunately, I fell asleep on the train. Once I got up, I already missed the stop, Oh Well >.<..Then, I thought I could go to Jiyuugaoka all the way by Hibiya line.So then, after I got off the train, My stomach was awake…Since I’ve been here once, I had the place I really wanted to go…So, this time, I went right straight to Okonomiyaki Tsumire-Chan. The small local Japanese-pizza restaurant which I knew from TV program.
Tsumirechan’s okonomiyaki is Osaka style, however, their unique menus has made them stand from other restaurant. Today, I had “Hip-Okomiyaki” which was actually pork Okonomiyaki top with Japanese spicy curry sauce, Yamaiimo(potato),Kimchi and Natto…However, I couldn’t eat Natto, so I asked them to take it out..Tsumire’s specialties were light batter and unique toppings which made their Okonomiyaki very tasty.


Then, After finished having late lunch, I walked around Jiyuugaoka…My favorite area was The Green Street, not only it’s only for walking and hanging around, but also there are many nice cafes, shops along the street. It’s great area for dating. I other place that I stoped by was Sweets Forest located on the end of Green Street. Inside Sweets Forest were famous various kinds of pastry and sweet stores from all over Tokyo. Which you can freely select anythings you like from the store and enjoy having at the porch or taking home. I chose White Monblanc from patissier Enfance. Inside soft creamy whipcream was blueberry cheesecake, it was so good that I couldn’t stop moving my hand. Jiyuugaoka still had more hiden charms that I have and haven’t discovered, therefore, I have to continue writing about it in next diary….Please don’t miss…;)

วันนี้นั่งรถไฟเพลินไปถึงจิยูกาโอกะ ไม่ใกล้ไม่ไกลจากไดคังยาม่ามากนัก ไหนๆก็ไปถึงแล้ว จึงแวะไปกินข้าวเที่ยงที่ร้านซุมิเระจังโอโคโนมิยากิ ของโปรดของฉันเลย แต่ที่ร้านนี้โดดเด่นก็ตรงที่มีเมนูแปลกๆอย่างที่ฉันสั่งคือ ฮิปโอโคโนมิยากิ ซึ่งตัวแป้งก็เป็นแบบปกติทั่วไปแต่เป็นสูตรของร้านซึ่งนุ่มกว่าที่อื่นๆ แต่ที่เด่นคือท้อปปิ้งแกงกระหรี่ กิมจิกับมันขูด ซี่งทานรวมกันแล้วอร่อยจนหยุดไม่ได้ หลังจากอิ่มท้องจากของคาวแล้วก็ต้องตบท้ายด้วยของหวาน นึกขึ้นได้ว่าที่นี้มีป่าขนมหวาน Sweet Forest อยู่ที่ถนนสีเขียว เดินหาอยู่นานในที่สุดก็เจอจนได้ เมื่อย่างเข้าไปก็รู้สึกว่าระดับน้ำตาลในเลือดและน้ำหนักที่อุตส่าห์ลดมาต้องมาเพิ่มก็คราวนี้ เพราะมีขนมจากร้านดังถึงแปดร้านให้เลือกทานกันอย่างจุใจที่สำคัญราคาก็ไม่แพงมาก ยกเว้นร้านซุเฟลล์ ที่ฉันเลือกเป็นมองบลังค์สีขาวข้างในเป็นบลูเบอร์รี่ชีสเค้กอร่อยมากๆ นอกจากมาเดินหาของอร่อยทานแล้วที่เมืองเล็กแห่งเสรีภาพนี้ยังมีอะไรซ่อนอยู่มากมาย อยากรู้ติดตามตอนหน้านะคะ
