Canine Guests

I cannot edit any images from the phone and since the computer is down, the photos
I take will upload ‘as is’..
Here is photo I snatched of one of the canine guests!
We also noticed a couple of Bichon Frissés, a Jack Russel, and an Airdale terrier.
Another bonus with this place is also a somewhat rare occurrence in Tokyo,
the red wine was not served chilled!!
So right here in Sangubashi there are two places that serve red wine at a ‘correct’ temperature … Yeah yet another plus for living in Sangubashi !!

Saved by the Chocolates


These saved me today!!

I sat up last night editing tons of images and trimming videos, from the past days.
It’s been an immense power usage since Thursday it was bound to happen….
I kind of knew that I can not use up all my sparkling credit at once without consequences.
That’s probably why I stayed up, and at least went through it all
before going to bed early this morning.
When I woke up around noon, I was very very weak, and I knew I had a fever.
My whole body aching, my nasal airways totally blocked and chest pains.
Luckily I really don’t get sick often, but when it does hit me I get very sick.
Shivering and shaking I lay in bed and realized I started to become very hungry.
Nothing at home to eat. I sat up in bed trying to muster enough energy to
make a cup of tea.
DIZZY!   No can do!!
so I laid back down…. now thinking how I should go about this;
if couldn’t even stand up. I definitely need to drink at least.
Then I remembered the chocolates we got at Club Sensation.
It was really funky gift forwarding swapping situation late at night. I sat up in bed
and managed to get over to the chocolates, thinking that it would raise my
blood sugar enough so I could have enough energy to make tea.
I ate a piece of these lovely chocolates…
….AND YES…..
it worked!!!

From there I could move on over to my stove and I did brew tea.
Then exhausted I lay down fell back to sleep for another 20 minutes or so
and when I woke up the tea was perfect drinking temperature.
After some tea I felt better and now the big challenge came… to get some food.
I managed to get dressed, ate another piece of chocolate and hoped I wouldn’t
faint coming back up the stairs.
Why did I think living on the 4th floor was such a brilliant idea?  ha ha ha
I actually love this apartment, the location and the views are to die for, but
oh well, today was not a day when getting back up to the fourth floor without
an elevator was such a good thing.
I really dont know how I did it, but I did come back with a meal from
the コンビニ (convenience store)  in this case 7-eleven.
so thanks to the chocolates I got energy enough to make it and later was able to
get full, and after the meal I got some energy back and now I hope I can do a
massive Vagu*Project blog video upload with passion !!
After yesterday I love these guys even more!
I love rock and music in Japan even more, and I am so happy that hide
shows the path!




from Soba to Party

…from toshikoshi soba 年越し蕎麦  ..
New year Soba Noodles
…to partying WITH hide!!!

Wow this must have been the Best New Year’s Night ever….
Probably because of two thing, I did not intend to party
and because I totally let go of the idea that I shouldn’t party,
and instead decided just lived in every moment of this night!
Second, because me and Phoe-Lo did something totally wild,
and in the spurt of the moment at ten o’clock we decided to go
to Shimokitazawa ( we were then sitting at Sakura House Café,
Ikebukuro eating the toshikoshi soba).
I still don’t know what happened, or why, but suddenly Phoe-Lo
looked at me, and I at her, and she suddenly said:
Anna, we can be in Shimokitazawa in 20 minutes … let’s do it!
So we took off…. just like that….
I’m sure the people at Sakura cafe had a great night, but it was just
not our crowd this night, we had to just do what I had done all
of 2011, and just jump straight out and do something crazy….
Neither one of us had partied in Shimokitazawa before.
I have been on my way sooo many times, but it just never happened
for this or that reason.
I have been there in daylight, but not for a night quite like this
one…..then again don’t think I have had a night quite like this one,
in a very looooong time….





Walking Southbound on the West side of Yoyogi Park

……When we are KIDS  I think we are so totally absorbed with
the moment that we are somehow on auto-pilot and for
everything and everyone else, besides ourselves, there are ‘the others’
whether it be parents, siblings, friends, or just the general unidentified
crowd of others




Started Walking in Sangubashi

This is where I started…

After leaving my door (you can follow along on the map in the post below),
I headed South along the West side of Yoyogi Park.
It was about 3 o’clock in the afternoon, and I was thinking I should
walk down to Shibuya Station area..
20 minutes or so to walk down there and 20 back…
decent walk… then add some time for taking some photos,
cause it does slow me down ha ha
How I wish I had a real camera…
