Long Blessed Sunday

I had another blessed day today ... 
Shizuoka JCOB Sunday Service with Pstra Nilda

"We have the power to make our choices ... then our choices will have the power to make us".

After the service ...
Refreshing time in Sumpu Yume Hiroba Spa with my dear family friends 

Everyone is always busy so we seldom get together ... but everytime we have the chance to get along ... we spend our time to the fullest ;-)

Friends are the family we choose for ourselves (^^)v

Easy Method to Relieve Stress

I usually do this method and it's very effective ...
Anytime, anywhere massage... no need for any devices or equipment... very helpful ;-)

Learn four potent acupressure points and self-acupressure methods for releasing shoulder tension and neck pain for relieving stress. Chronic shoulder and neck tensions from common stress conditions cause circulation and neuro-muscular problems, tension headaches, insomnia, and various pains. Learn to manage your stress using acupressure points located on your shoulders and neck using finger pressure.

Japanese Persimmons Picking Time!

It's autumn ... season of Japanese persimmons or kaki ! 
My friend Neri and kuya Harada have kaki trees in their compound... and every year they're inviting friends to help them harvest the fruits and of course they give them all away to whoever helped them... heheh ...
I guess it's 3 years ago or more since the last time i helped harvesting kaki with friends ... and yesterday... i had this chance again to do kaki picking.  My friend Amie wanted to experience kaki picking and i recommended Neri's place.  Amie phoned Neri that we will go to her place then Ann joined us ... too bad Liza missed this fun coz i know she loves kaki as much as Amie and Ann love it ;-) 

↑Juan Tamad (Lazy Juan) version ^^

↑Kaki are sweet <3 p="">

 We shared this to all our family friends :) 

Thanks to Kuya Harada, Neri and family ... we had a great time yesterday and they're inviting us to help harvest their kiwi next time ... looking forward to it ;-)

Let's see how your brain works ;-)

Right brained? Left brained? Take the test! 

Clicked below link:
I got 53/47 :P and says
You use your brain equally."

hahah ... good it's working! ekkk! 


You use your brain equally.

According to how your brain works, the dancer will either turn clockwise or counter clockwise. If she turns clockwise, then you use predominantly the right side of your brain and you are more than likely right-handed.

Day Visit Spa in Hakone

Hola ... Last Saturday, Sachan had a surprised visit to us in Shizuoka from Niigata... just on time to spend 3 days weekend holidays with us!  
We went to spa resort in Hakone on Sunday.  Our first time visit to YU NO SATO spa resort.  This place is also popular as higairi onsen or one day spa.    
It is located in the foot of Yuksaka mountain of Hakone.   We enjoyed the open-air bath with mountain view and clear blue skies... perfect for relaxation.  
They said that the view is more gorgeous on autumn leaves season and sakura viewing on spring and at night  ... moon viewing is awesome.  

it's on the hill
the onsen lobby hall, 3F 


We had zaro soba for lunch and it was great too ...満足でした☆

Inside the sauna with Sachan... i spotted an interesting posted phrase and memorized it ... it says,

Last day of holidays today... wonder what to do next aside from finishing my next never ending homeworks ;-)

My new boyfriend!

I can't afford to buy a Hummer car but i was able to have Hummer folding bike!!! 

The front tire of my bike that i was using always was totally flat and i need to change the whole tire already... it will only cost me if i will ask to fix it ... besides it's really old and hopeless ... so i thought it's wise to buy a new one and alaaas... was able to get my new BF today... heheh.  I choose folding bike this time so i can put it inside the house or take it in the car on times of travelling. 
Thanks to my bff papie for sponsoring my new bike ;-)



It's a mountain bike type 

I feel blessed always ... thank u Lord ;-)
