Unique sounds of Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra

My dear daughter gave me a ticket of Tokyo Ska Paradice Orchestra's concert tour in Shizuoka  ... truth is i dunno this group (generation gap?!! lol) but she said to watch them and i will surely enjoy them. 

Well, i believe her taste in music ... so i went tonight and i did enjoy the concert ... what a powerful group!!!  ... all around in performances, not only ska but jazz and even rock too ... they can also sing and perform like comedians as well. They are really terrific ... it was a cool and entertaining concert!
 Thank you again precious ;-) 

 Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra, commonly abbreviated by fans as Skapara or TSPO, is a Japanese ska and jazz band officially formed in 1988 by the percussionist Asa-Chang, and initially composed of over 10 veterans of Tokyo's underground scene.

I have letter "M" on my palm!

This article caught my eyes from Foods and Healthy Life site ... 
I'm sharing this just for fun and curiosity ...
Got interested coz my palm have letter "M" too ;) 

Do you have "M" on your palm?
According to many, the lines on the palms talk about our character and destiny. But those who have the letter M on the palm, is said to be special.
It is said that these people are especially gifted possess great intuition and are excellent partners for any business.

If your loved one has the letter M on the palm, you must know one thing – no joke, no lies and no fraud with them.

They will always find that you lie them or cheat.

Women who has letter M on the palm, have stronger intuition than men, and if both spouses have still prevails woman.

These people have the power to make the changes they need in life and therefore need to seize the opportunities in life.

The letter “M” within the subject’s palm is also an omen of:



Fortune in life.

Great prospect’s.

According to folk tradition all the prophets ever had this sign on their palm, and if you are part of the people who have the palm point M, know that you are really a special person.

Ummm ... so inspiring ... however,  i am not after to leadership or riches  ... just wanted a simple and peaceful life ... Fortune in life ?  Well... seems i already have them ... not the fortune like money or assets ... my fortune are those people that i love and who loves me too and of course not to forget ...  our Almighty that keeps me bless always ... our dear God.  xx

My new travel companion ;-)

Finally,  this 2 way camo bag is mine! 

I already fell in love with this bag when i saw it for the first time in Osada last summer ... 
I did not buy it that time coz i thought i still never need it ... but last autumn i needed a bigger rucksack for travel and i remember this Anello bag ... i went to Apita Osada ... but unfortunately it was not available anymore.   In other words, it was sold out coz  it became popular when it was introduced in one of tv program.  

Yesterday... when i was in Apita ... i tried to window shop in Osada again ... and i was overwhelming to see my type bag on display again!  I did not have any second thought this time ... because i know i can use it in my travels n'way :)  
... i bought it as a treat for myself for my hardwork lately ... yaaay thank u Lord for being my provider always ... now I am ready to travel again ;-)

Flocking birds

After my work in Fuji ... i decided to have a late afternoon walk from station up to my home. 

I passed by to Shichikencho and this what surprised me ... flocking birds! 
It's fun to watch them but somewhat scary too.  

I can't help thinking about the movie, The Birds by Alfred Hitchcock.  The birds were attacking humans in that movie ... good that these birds were seems to be nice in reality :P

Missing her this Christmas

It was a long day for me today ... Christmas gathering here and year end party there ... 
It was fun with friends and colleagues but the most precious time to me today was the moment spent with my dear daughter.   
Once again, after the weekend bonding  ... we will be distance away again for a while...
Do u know that missing someone that matters too much to you is one of the sad things in this world?  
I'm gonna miss her again ... especially this Christmas :( 
Oh well... distance means so little when someone means so much! ;-)
Who knows :)
