Azabu Juuban Summer Matsuri

As we arrived a little early for the festival, we grabbed some light lunch at Dean Deluca first.

We shared an oreo muffin and a quiche.

Our summer ice blended drinks~

Even after we were done, the festival hasn't started yet, so we went to the nearby Snoopy Museum to check it out.

We only took some pictures outside and didn't enter the museum.

Finally, it's time for the Azabu Juuban Summer Matsuri~!!!

We bought various food items to share. These grilled mushrooms were amazing~

These huge mushrooms here were juicy but in terms of flavours, the one on top has more flavours.

I especially love this steamed uni dish~

Look at it~!!! The entire thing is packed with uni! Full of umami flavours~

Some interesting drinks that C bought.

Grilled squids and fried shrimps~

More grilled seafood! I really enjoyed this dish too. Especially the scallops and uni!

We even passed by this very interesting vending machine that sells this special fish sauce. Lol~

More interesting drinks~

Overall, I had fun and enjoyed the food at the festival. I would definitely love to be back next year~

Kasai Rinkai Koen

Was walking around the station area when we found this interesting little restaurant called ルーチェ 西葛西店(Luce).

It was surprisingly a very good find!

We all ordered the lunch set which came with an appetiser and bread. Look at the size of that bread! It's bigger than a guy's fist!

The food was really good and so was that bread!

Next came the cream soup in this cute puff pastry thing.

Next was the first main. We all ordered different pastas which turned out to be not bad too.

Up next was the second main. Yh and I chose the pork while C chose the fish. Both were delicious~!!

This was followed with a dessert of choice!

I ordered this but chocolate cake which reminded me of a ferrero rocher.

C ordered the green tea cake which had a very sophisticated flavour and Yh ordered the mango cake which was very refreshing!

I was very happy with the meal because it was very filling and the desserts were superb!

After that we took a long walk past several small parks to Kasai Rinkai Koen.

Enjoyed the walk there while playing Pokemon Go.

I always wanted to go on a boat ride like this one. Maybe one day.....

The ferris wheel that I see so often but never got the chance to get on.

Unfortunately, the weather wasn't too good when we were there so we had to go home early.

Bee House (ビーハウス 渋谷店) & アルファカーメル

Here's the appetiser.

My order of lasagna which was not bad. 

Chicken with mashed potatoes.

While the food looked really food on pictures, the food was just ok. 

After that, we stopped by アルファカーメル in Shibuya mark city which served some pretty good desserts!

I ordered this creme brulee and C had this maron chocolate cake. Both desserts were yummy and not too sweet!

Partenope (パルテノペ 広尾店), Hiro-O

After I've settled the documents for my new apartment, I went to to do some colouring at the library and grabbed dinner at Partenope.

We had the mozzarella pizza which was yummy~ 

Love seafood! So we also ordered a seafood dish!

For desserts, they brought us this beautiful platter to choose from!

In the end, we decided to try the half-seized dessert plate and this his how it looked like.

Dinner was yummy and the dessert plate was absolutely beautiful!

Catching up with old colleagues

I feel like it was sooo many years ago when I worked with these peeps.....back in 2009!

I had a gathering with them last year and a year later, we're meeting again.

It was definitely interesting to see how we've all changed and how sometimes it is really fated that we should meet in the first place. After so many years, we still managed to meet in a different country!

Meeting up with M and baby

The last time I met up with M, she was pregnant with baby and few months later, I'm having lunch with her and baby Reon.

We grabbed lunch at Baqet where they served all you can eat bread with your main meal.

They also served a plate of salad.

This time, we both ordered the hamburger lunch.

I can't believe how much has changed since I know M. When I first know her, she was married but haven't had her wedding ceremony. Now, she had her wedding, got pregnant and gave birth~!!!

I'm so happy for her, that she has a wonderful hubby and a beautiful family.

Getting on with life

Immediately after sending my parents off at the airport, I head over to Tokyo station to meet Mish to discuss about the prospects of us living together.

Our lunch~

First time seeing broccoli on a pizza hahaha...

After that, we went back to Shinjuku and spotted Dobby in uniform.

Met up with C there and had dinner with his friend....can't believe I'm having shabu-shabu buffet twice in a week! My tummy~
