My creamy banana- avocado smoothie

After a long day of work ... had dinner ... 
then, walk for about 30 minutes around my vicinity ...  
and before our discipleship session tonight ... 
i picked up my goddaughter Reina chan at the station ... 
then we did treat ourselves with my version of creamy banana-avocado smoothie with honey and milk ... 
aaaaand guess what??? we loOove it ... 
also perfect for the health of Reina chan's baby-to-be (^^)v 
I suggest this smoothie  is best to drink in the morning ... 
Take note!  Avocado is also good on protecting our heart while banana is supporting cardiovascular.

Night walk

My second day walking exercise!
I did work today so i just decided to walk at night after dinner.  
It says that walking at night could aids digestion and helps to burn some calories ;-)

So walk Mel walk!!! 

While walking ... i enjoyed some night sight around my vicinity !
 Tokiwa Fountain at night

 Oden stall and restaurant ... perfect place for winter! 

  My goal point tonight ... city hall!!! 

After an hour walk ... here's my treat for myself ... my original papaya-banana smoothie!

明日も、頑張ります p(^^)q

yumyum for breakfast or dessert ;-)
