Destination Tokyo Tower, Ginza Street, Shibuya

AFTER LUNCH, we were taken to Tokyo Tower...
A communication and observation tower located in Shiba Park, Minato and Tokyo with a height of 333 meters, it is the tallest self-supporting steel structure in the world.

Next destination is the Ginza area, known as an upmarket or should I say, high end area with lots of branded stuff.  Of course, I could only go window shopping, just look see the Burberry, Blue Label, Celine among others....

For dinner, we had Shabu-Shabu... not sure what it is called in Japan, as far as I am concerned, I call it steamboat... LOL...

After dinner, we checked in to our hotel which is connected to a shopping mall.  Too bad it closes at 9pm, some even earlier... anyway, I was really tired by then.... once hit the pillows, it was ZZZZzzzz for me!
Taken at Tokyo Tower.... 
From the ground level...
And scenery from above the high tower.... 
Don't look down.. just at eye level...
They have a mini Skywalk Window up here..... 
My legs turned "jelly" when I stepped on it.... 
Looking down from the skywalk... 
One of my legs... 

At Ginza area.. high end... so I noticed not many shoppers....
Perhaps it was a weekday.... 
But it is not the case in Shibuya, the most busy intersection in the world... 
Well, rumoured to be... 
It is like a giant beating heart, sending people in all directions with every traffic light change... 
At peak times, it is said to be over 1000 people at this intersection... 
All I see is humans and more humans..... 
And it was not even the peak hour...... 
Then...
Dinner time!
Endless food... Buffet style.... 
Satisfaction Guaranteed!!  LOL...

  4. I remember Ginza, was there in the 80's so very long ago. I think I went to Tokyo Tower too. Can't remember much other than everything was so expensive. I am sure it is very much more so now.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
