24th November, 2015

The weather is rapidly changing from Autumn
to Winter. The leaves have dropped, the sky
now is gloomy. Everything is drab. 


Chikako baked me some delicious mini-cakes/bread
before she went to Nara and Osaka for work. 

Yum !

 Q  U O T E  

"In his younger days a man dreams of possessing the heart of the woman whom he loves; later, the feeling that he possesses the heart of a woman may be enough to make him fall in love with her."

--from "Swann's Way" 
(1913) by Marcel Proust

Chikako was off today, so we went for lunch together
before I had to go to work. 

It was my very first experience to have salad in a jar. 
I wasn't quite sure how to eat it ! 

Lunch was delicious. 

 After eating all of this, the last thing that I wanted to do was to go to work. 
I just wanted to go to sleep ..........

Saturday Evening

7th November, 2015

Chikako and I went out for dinner to the West Side
of the Station to a Chinese restaurant we have been to several times before. 

It was a 5th Anniversary Dinner for 11th November, 2010. 
We had bought our apartment on the 10th and moved in on the 11th. 
With help from Sam, who was living with us then. 

Time flies......... 

Whilst walking back we saw workmen at the Station
putting up the Christmas Illuminations already ! 

And a few days later they also installed the Illuminations in Paseo Street. 
I took these photos from the Office window.

03rd November, 2015

It was a public holiday in Japan today. 
We went for a bike ride and had lunch 
at Sultan's Kitchen. It was our second time there. 

I kicked off with a mango juice. 


It is also the 45th Memorial Day of my late maternal Grandfather. 
Ronald Howard Sydney Saunderson.
