Cheers to 2019! with DUVAL-LEROY and CENTURY SWISS

Cheers to the glorious year 2019 ⭐︎⭐︎⭐︎

Lady F            &    Rose      

I am occasionally attending the champagne lunch at French Kitchen, Roppongi Hills. My friend F gives me an information about the event. It is a chance for women to dress nicely and have a fabulous lunch flow champagnes. You can drink as much as you like! I know, it is a dangerous attraction...

The wine is DUVAL-LEROY, and lady-like pink champagne is making bubbles quietly in the glass with a fine texture and smooth feeling. 

We taste 4 kinds of champagnes in accordance of each cooking from a full-course meal. Every champagne is poured into a glass when it's getting less. See? It is dangerous...๐Ÿ˜…

Even small bread is very tasty with real butter. We listen to the explanation about DUVAL-RELOY while enjoying the delicious champagne & dishes. What a luxurious time!


It was a joint event. We learned about CENTURY SWISS, too. This elegant watch I am trying on is PRIMA DONNA white gold, diamonds, quarts

The part of a marquise (pointed oval) cut is made of sapphire! CENTURY SWISS, namely, CENTURY Sapphire Swiss Watches. A formal name expresses Luxury Time Gems. 

I don't purchase a gem(a watch) from this brand. I have to work half a year if I buy PRIMA DONNA. So...I just introduce this luxuriously feminine watch on my blog to someone who might have an interest in...

The costume theme was "white" this time.

I am not rich. (clearly ^^)  However, spending a beautiful time with good friends once in a while is never useless. 

The participation fee is about US$110. If you are interested, please check the information site of French Kitchen. 

My friend - Lady F.   It's great to be friends with you.

I want to be with positive, kind, and sincere people. Yes, it is one of my 2019 resolutions. So, should say "will be". ๐Ÿ˜‰

I will be away from negative, toxic, mean, insincere people! That is the key to living a happy life. I cherish myself๐Ÿ’–

Gift chocolates and flowers from CENTURY SWISS๐Ÿ’•

After the event, Rose and Lady F had a short break at Blue Bottle Coffee in Omotesando before going home. It was a quiet, nice atmosphere. The coffee is a bit expensive, though... ^^;

When I got home, I opened the box. How lovely!  Cookies and chocolates were so delicious. 

May this year be your best ever...  Rose

Happy New Year 2019

Aaarrrgh...!  It's already approaching the mid of January, 2019. Finished work of the first week this year, my engine seems to have been left running.

Hey you guys, how are you doing?

I start my blog this year with a special citrus, familiar in everyday life of Japanese people, during the cold season in particular.

"Yuzu", a kind of citrus fruit, picked from a tree in the shared garden near my parents' place. It grows naturally, so it is thankfully organic! A yuzu peel gives off a strong, fresh scent. Sliced thinly peels and also juice are useful for multiple purposes; tea, soup, dressing, and seasoning etc.

Did you make your New Year resolution?

One of mine is to restore my eyesight. I spend a whole day on the computer at my work. My eyesight is declining. I must develop the habit of seeing distant objects. To improve the flow of blood, I added "suwaishou" to my morning exercise because "suwaishou" is a highly effective way of improving systemic circulation.

Well, I need enough sleeping hours to make a recovery from any unhealthiness. I'll give it a try.

I'm hoping to wright about, not only my life in Japan, but also my travel record in Michigan. I bet you'll love it!

Holiday Season Greetings from Rose

Hi...  This is my last post in 2018.

I started my blog at Blogger in October 2018. I wish I could post my writing more, but it is difficult to do it on weekdays. I should be committed to continuing to improve my skill at the Advertising company. And that is what I can do in the present situation.

I still have a passion to write about Michigan. Though I'm not sure if the day I live in Michigan will come. During a festive season, I showed you how it was like in Tokyo through the pictures I took. It means a lot to me if you had fun to see those posts.

At an exhibition in December where two oil paintings my old boss drew were displayed as a part of it

Hoping you'll have a very merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!

There are ups and downs. There are good times and bad times. It happens equally to all people.

People can't become affectionate with experiencing only easy occurrences to deal with. Sometimes you need to face a pain. The spirit and humanity grow by having various experiences including difficulty. And we have to remember.   - Life is full of solutions.

Let's make 2019 our year full of love and passion. See you again...

With my gratitude for people who visit my blog,

Grandeur illumination, "Starry Sky 2018〜2019" at YURAKUCHO MULLION

People often arrange to meet each other at YURAKUCHO MULLION.

This year, the square is decorated with a hundred thousand light bulbs, stars!

 A sparkling gate we can see from Nov.8th, 2018 to Feb.14th, 2019, could be a little pleasure when we pass by at night.

I came to YURAKUCHO MULLION to watch a movie.

Then, the planetarium set up temporarily gave me an another opportunity to think about Christmas.

People await the annual celebration of the birth of Jesus, whose name means Savor...

Starry Sky expresses our hope, and a gate toward 2019.

I wait.

I silently wait for the New Year, gratefully accepting my boundless chance to challenge.

Chic and elegant. L'OSIER's Red Christmas Lights in Ginza.

It has never been advertised extensively. However, the red lights in the holiday season is ever more sophisticated than any other lights in Ginza.

I can see this lights again this year.

L'OSIER is a French restaurant that was established in Ginza, Tokyo in 1973.

I always just pass by... I don't think there will be a day for me to dine here. You know, it's expensive. So I am enjoying looking at the light. Simple red lights stand out on the contrary from other colorful decorations in Ginza.

It is located on the NAMIKI street which is the most gorgeous street in Ginza.

I sometimes walk through this street from my office to go shopping, to watch a movie, or just walk. It lifts me up. Wise way to refresh myself without spending money!

The white round flower on the street is made by lighting. You can see this everywhere on the NAMIKI street. I'm not sure how it comes out. Absolutely art and as if it were printed on the concrete.

L'OSIER has been awarded three stars in the Michelin Guide Tokyo 2019 issued on November 30, 2018. It shows that it is worth the trip to visit.

I will visit.

Even if I don't taste their dishes by an executive chef, looking at elegant red lights is worth it for me.
