Hi there bloggers welcome back to hazvanmazinjapaz! Last week featured chain drinking coffee, nights out and the onslaught of winter as well as Japanese lessons of joy and READING.
So last week’s Japanese lesson brought me much joy and merriment as our teacher was back and loving life! We learnt the starsigns (yaaaas) and how to talk about flowers (which I LOVED – my love for horticulture is BLOOMING with no sign of wilting – loooool) and I am seriously considering taking an ikebana (Japanese flower arranging ) class. I would be so Scarlett Johansen in Lost in Translation hahahahaha
After joyful Japanese and receiving a Christmas package from Becca HoLoLington – (what a BABE I am so spoilt!) Friday arrived and then eventually the weekend. Work has been tiring and we’ve all been feeling the end of term but CHRISTMAS IS IN THE AIR and it’s getting me through the CHILL of winter!
On Friday night I chilled and read. I’ve been reading a lot at the moment and loving it all. All Japanese books e.g. Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto which I LOVED,/ a cheesy teen love story manga called Your Lie In April by Naoshi Arakawa and currently reading Strange Weather In Tokyo by Hiromi Kawakami which I’m also thoroughly enjoying. Reading = fab and I feel like it is ENRICHING MY LIFE.
Speaking of LIFE ENRICHMENT on Saturday I had a lovely day wandering around Naka Meguro, drinking coffee and basking in the winter sunshine with the lovely Tommy P. We caught up on life and strolled up and down the river drinking delicious mocha orange concoctions and feeling über trend (and also getting VERY excited about the return of Big Bang – kpop forevs).
Saturday night then marked my first night out in AGES. We all bowled over to Nichome and had lolz with the dream team: Zoe chan, Shazza, Jean, Tom and David chan. It was lovely to all have lolzzzzz and we loved our lives 💖
I then headed out to Ageha this HUGE club in Odaiba with Tom and ended up staying out all night (lolz)
Sunday was then understandably fairly quiet, I spent most of it in my pjs in the heating. I did go for a little walk though and gazed adoringly on the autumnal scenes.
Monday then brought more Christmas themed classes. The theme tune to my life is Last Christmas and I am delighted! I have also been going to the lovely Junko’s for lunch loads and got treated to this delight on Monday. I was in pure joy. Plus I had a stilted conversation in Japanese – yassssssss I got MY LIFE.
Then on Tuesday after work Zoe, Shaz, David and I headed over to Saizeriya for a delightful meal FULL of lolz and tomfoolery. I laughed so much, LOVE THOSE BABES. Was lolz to hang with Zoe chan as I haven’t seen her in AGES and she makes me LOL. Everyone was on top form and loving life 💖 David bought me a cinnamon bun on the way home and we LOVED LIFE. FRIENDS ARE GREAT.
And today has been joyful and I’m now alternating between Kpop, Chaka Khan, Lady Gaga and Christmas music with my cup of tea living my BEST LIFE 💖
That’s pretty much it for this week but I’ll be back next week with more Japan adventures and I’ll be ready for all the crimbo lolzzzzz 💖💖💖 also I am SO EXCITED because my trip to Australia is AROUND THE CORNER and I cannot wait till Kiri and Stu’s wedding it is going to be INCRED (also van Manens EN MASSE watch out Adelaide lol lol lol)
