25th Dec: Christmas Dinner, Church and 3 Mos of Us

Image
WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS!
MERRY ...

CHRISTMAS!

God bless YOU!!
Wow, can you believe that it's Christmas already? I went to Church from 2 pm - 5.30 pm for our Christmas Celebration to remind us again what is the meaning of Christmas.

We had a guest speaker, his name is Hiroshi Sakakibara and He talked about "Holy Child" which is Jesus Christ.
As a believer, I believe Christmas is to remind us that it is all about Jesus Christ, born into this world to wash away our sins. We should have died and just burned away in Hell because of our sins but redeemed by His blood on the Holy cross.
We originally were created as creations that are Holy, but because Adam and Eve fell into sin (death) we have to suffer (experience death).

I know Christmas for those who are non-believers mean dinner, exchange gifts and Christmas tree.
But believe me, I also DID all that but not many people know the meaning of Christmas.

A person who lives under the same house, apparently know the…

Shu Uemura 2010 Christmas Collection

Image
Shu oh Shu......................................... What can I say about Shu?
Shu Uemura's been my favourite make-up brand ever since I discovered his pencil concealer.
After that, I just fell in love one by one, his Foundation Architect which I am onto my 2nd bottle and now his Christmas 2010 Make up Collection.
For your information, I only bought 2 items. This palette above, and the deck-built lip gloss-lip stick.




Then of course the colours!!! I chose this palette instead of the more glamorous one because EVERYONE IS JUST BORING.
Yes, BORING!

Same colours, same gold - brown - colours, put some COLOURS in your life i mean Face :p
hahahaha

Anyways, The turquoise blue, the gray glitter colour and the slightly aquamarine blue are super soft and easy to apply and I have to inform that they stay on!

It is better if you use primer first as base then apply your eye-shadows.
The 2 colours at the sides are your eyeliner as well as highlighter. The darker one is the eyeliner which is brownish colour…

24th Birthday in JAPAN!!

Image
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!

THIS is my 24th birthday celebrated in Japan, it's my 2nd time so, it feels as if I am in Japan for 2 years but actually not. It's just that my birthday is in December (7th to be exact!!) so I get to celebrate it!


So this is the people who celebrated my birthday with me!!! We made CHEESE FONDUE for the night!!! YEAY!!
And with generous KANPAI(s) with NO-ALCOHOL, because I am alcohol intolerant, we started our dining!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hehehe

The cheese was OK, as usual, Cheese or any dairy products in Japan is very weak in taste, it felt as if I was eating cream instead. LOL not cheese.
But since everybody was so nice, I love them alot, it really made my day!

And, since Fugu-chan worked like crazy during last week, I assumed he is not going to come AT ALL.

But HE CAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Only spent 2 hours in Tokyo and back to Tochigi which takes like 1.5 hours by Shinkansen one way.
He ordered…

I have to admit I found the hair salon through a lot of vain for example I went through the Hot Pepper magazine, lurking around Shibuya, Kinshichou and Ryougoku.

Then, I figured that I should try searching in the Internet, I finally found it.
It is called

Watanabe Hair Salon

Tsukiji Party

Image
On the Wednesday of 勤労感謝の日(Labor Thanksgiving Day) which is the 23rd of November, I went out with my Church friends to Tsukiji. Since it is a public holiday, we decided to go to Sushizanmai!
(LEFT): In front of me: Stella --> her friend, Scan, Mac.
(Right): Me, Victor, Aji, Franky.

Sushizanmai is A Sushi-chained-restaurant, and pretty well-known here in Tokyo. They have 3 restaurants in Tsukiji and I went to the Honten (the mother resto).
They open 24/7, HALLELUJAH to SUSHI and SUSHIZANMAI. LOLLLLLL

I succeeded in persuading the 3 people on my table to eat ABURITORO, SHAKO and AKAGAI.
hahahahahahhahahahahhahahaha

How to get to Tsukiji:
-By Hibiya Sen (subway): Get off at H10 (Tsukiji Station/ Tsukiji Eki), take Exit 1 and walk pass Hongan-Ji (the European Temple looking building) and cross the Big Intersection.
(U only need to walk straight no right or left turns/crossings) and you will directly see the big placard SUSHIZANMAI.

- By Oedo Sen (subway): Get off at TsukijiShijo Station and foll…

Korean BBQ In Oakhouse Ryogoku!

Image
On Saturday the 20th, we had a KOREAN BBQ Party!!!!



Damn Awesome! The master chef, Choi-san (Left) from Korea is so nice he bought all these awesome awesome Korean meat, and made 2 types of soup for us here the residents of Oakhouse Ryogoku!

We had all the salad lined up, the soy-paste, the yummiest slices of grilled beef, the super mouth-salivating soup and rice, it was just never ending party!

I told him that we should have this once per month but he said that the next time we have one it will be me (Indonesian food).
Geeze, making traditional food is NEVER easy.
Oh, before we started I made a starter it was Fried Chicken Mayonnaise. Everyone LOVED IT.
Here is the picture! (above!).
LOL
Then, I received a cocoa-coated chocolate cake from Fugu-chan, he brought it to me in the morning. He said that he bought it on the lobby of the fanciest hotel in Ryogoku. LOL
It costs him a lot he said. LOL
The Master Chef is the one on the far right and thanks Fugu chan for taking the pic. LOL
Too bad, Kan-c…

KanChan's Birthday!

Image
HAPPY BIRTHDAY KAN-CHAN


So today's my housemate's birthday! We celebrated her 23rd in a really marine-life-look alike restaurant! The entire atmosphere is comfortable enough and the lights are dimmed to create the under the sea effect!


This is inside the room and behind it is an aquarium.

We had nomihoudai which is "all you can drink" + food enough for 5 persons.

For 2 hours we paid 3500 Yen and really loved it!

We all had fun taking turns to ask Kan-chan a question about herself!
And, it was great finding out more info from her.LOL

This restaurant is located in Yurakuchou, so basically you have to ride the train on Yamanote-Line.

The address, hmm... I will give you the details if you post me a message requesting for the details.

I am not really fond of dark rooms but I think it is quite romantic just to eat casually on a Friday night.

On the right here is Yaya, Me and Choi-san (from Korea).

With 3500 yen with your friends surrounding you, I don't think anyone will sulk on …

Piling Up Days

Image
Haha, I am reminiscing my days in Chiba Dormitory! This pic was taken on the day of Thanksgiving I believe, urgh, I forgot!
I miss everyone in Chiba University.

Anyway, the end of the week is already here and I am sure we are all tired.
Unlike in Australia, Japan is a country where people constantly work 24/7, NOT literally 24/7 but maybe 16/7. hahaha

Most companies still require their employees to come in during the weekends but I believe it is unhealthy.
Around yesterday, I was standing near the exit door beside a really SLEEPY MAN.

I mean, he was sleeping - standing and I can guarantee you if the train door kept closed, I am sure he would've fallen to the ground and just snored away. lol

If I have a company, I would give appropriate treatments to my subordinates, making sure they work in their most optimum conditions.
LACK of SLEEP = Moody, Stressful, Lacking Team Effort, Introvert and trigger many health issues.

Apart from that, I should watch my own health!!!

I have announcements to ma…

Halloween Day

Image
After almost 3.5 weeks not seeing Mr.Fugu cos he was on a business trip to Mie, we finally met up!
Yes yes, alot of arguing but also a lot of memories that need to be cherished were made! I can assure you that! (FROM THE ARGUMENTS we had).
Me and Fugu are total complete Definite Opposites in E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G. But hey, that what makes life interesting isn't it. If not, it will be boring. :D
Neways, he came 2 days before Halloween and it is so thoughtful of him to celebrate Halloween by buying me cute candles.

And not only that, he bought me a Studying Charm from the famous Ise Shrine which is located in Mie-ken Prefecture to dedicate Japan's Goddess called Amaterasu.
And he also bought me jelly Halloween stickers and stick them all over in my room. I KINDA feel my room is a bit spooky now hahahahaha But anyways, I love them, even though I was kind of wishing more. He did not even give me a specific present for my graduation. LOL
Nevertheless, I should be grateful enough.

Graduation Day in Hong Kong

Image
Dear fellow readers,
I have finally graduated after grueling years in the University of Sydney as one of the Bachelor of Arts students from 2006-2010. Sounds long? Because I saved up credits to apply for the Chiba University 2009-2010.
I missed out on the 8th of October 2010 graduation and instead went to the one in Hong Kong, JW Marriott Hotel on the 26th at 7 pm.
Check out my photo: I will make this world a better place. With my intelligence and God's blessing, I hope I can be of use to the world and to the people around me and make my parents proud.
Thank you for viewing my blog. And Long live USYD and Japanese Studies and IR/HRM
XOXO Sasa
Ps: I have fever for 2 days now. T_T

My dinner for tonight!!

Image
My version of : LAWSON'S UDON NOODLE SOUP LOL...
I bought the udon, the udon sauce, the seaweed, the eggs everything from the 100 Yen shop
Don't you just love 100 yen shop in Japan? LOL
Well how to make?
1. Boil one packet of udon. 2. Pour the Udon sauce (it comes in a bottle and says Udon Tsuyu). (It depends on your liking, if you like it salty, pour more, if not then less is better. So it is always BETTER to pour less first and later on building it up little by little). 3. Crack the egg and just put it in along with the udon and boil together. 4. When the udon is soft and the egg is done (1/2 cooked or hard boiled), pour them into your bowl.
Additional:
-Add seaweed!! (I used dried seaweed but with hot water they go back to their original state). -Add chili oil. -Add more chili Powder (I AM A CHILI /SPICY CHICK). :p
So there YOU GO. EASY dinner/lunch for a chilly night in Japan.

September Love

5. I found the love of my life... :D This is him.
I have a lot of things to do for the future so, a good plan should be written and be done.
Oh btw, I just made a poem it's in indonesian and called "Rindu".
Here it is
Rindu padamuBagai teriris ujung pisauPerih meresap Ke dalam pembuluh darahRindu yang panjangSeakan memalu hatiMeleleh rasa hati jiwaMenggapai mencoba mencariRindu-kuBegitu piluSampai air mataDan kata hanya terbata
