#94- Birthday party at High School Musical 2

Today was my best friend (Suzie)’s 7 year old daughter’s birthday and we had a great time!

In the morning, I went to *** hotel and had a breakfast with Suzie, her two daughters and her parents.

Thank god…I have not seen her parents for 13 years, since 1997 Thanksgiving (Suzie and I went to visit them for Thanksgiving in ***). I was soooooooo happy to see them! They are here from *** (Far from California) for their grandkid’s birthday party.

7 year old girl was very excited about her party.

The party was wonderful!!!

Suzie invited 50 guests for “High School Musical 2” at the Canyon Theatre Guild (in Old Town Newhall) and she was such a great host! She served snack and drink during the 15 minutes intermission break, then we had a party on the stage with cast from the show. Kids were so happy to meet with cast. We had pizza, vegetable tray, cake and drink at the party.

OMG…cast and staff of the Canyon Theatre Guild (www.canyontheatre.org) were so kind for us to use their stage (we suppose to use the patio for the party, but we had rain today, so we had a party on the stage after the show) and cast came to our party and met us.

Suzie is such a great mother, even though she was busy for work (Japanese TV news), she took time to prepare for this party for her daughter. Her daughter’s favorite show is “High School Musical”, so she put together for her daughter’s birthday party.

She had gift for guests (included me!). The gift were cute lollipops (large and cute colorful) and CD of High School Musical 2. That’s cute! Really cute! She gave it to me pink (which is my favorite color) version gift! (I feel like a kid! ha ha ha!!!) Suzie is a creative person and their daughters are so lucky to have her as a mother!

After party, we went back to the hotel where Suzie’s parents stays and we had family party in the parents room. We had great food and great conversation.

It was sooooo nice to celebrate 7 year old girl's birthday like this and I was really happy to be with them. I really felt “LOVE” from Suzie and Suzie’s family.

Life is for love.

#279- Happy Spring!

How many do you walk?





I saw this sign on the street in my new neighborhood, it says, “Walk 6,000 steps a day to improve health and 10,000 steps a day to lose weight. How many do you walk?”





Between “TBS TV (Tokyo Broadcasting System Television, Inc.) news program, Road Rage, DMV, LAPD, CHP, Anger Management, Google, Cold, Gas range, A DIET BOOK BY YOKO FUJIMOTO, Senken-Shimbun, Agenda Long Beach Show, LA Fashion Market Summer 2018, Gas heater, TAX Return, Google, Google Play, LA Textile Show Spring/Summer 2019, LA Fashion Market Fall 2018 etc. (work, work and work… and sick and trouble… and work, work and work…and trouble…)” and “Descanso Gardens”… I have been walking a lot… really a lot… I walked 10 times of 17 miles per day (from my new apartment to Descanso Gardens round trip plus walking at Descanso Gardens) in two months.





My weight is between 80lbs and 83lbs, even I eat a lot (eat what I want) I can keep up my current weight (80lbs-83lbs).

Title of this column: From L.A. “Slut?”
(http://www.senken.co.jp/report/downtown-la-eggslut/)

Since a few years ago, I have been noticing the egg shape sign of “eggslut” (http://www.eggslut.com) on the way to L.A. fashion district in downtown Los Angeles.

“Slut” means in Japanese “bimbo”, “whore”, “hooker” and “slut”.
“eggslut (a woman is sleeping around with eggs)”? This shocking name of the restaurant has been bringing curiosity to me.

This restaurant (“eggslut”) has a counter at the “Grand Central Market” which is also famous as a tourist popular spot, and when I drive by this place my curiosity about this place is getting bigger and bigger, because I always see a long line in front of…

#276- Evil noise vs. White noise

Today (Nov 20th in the midnight) someone broke into my apartment (my front door two locks were unlocked / my door was locked before I went to bed)…
[I should’ve get up when upstairs guys were harassing me with loud banging noise around 3:20am-4:30am this morning.]

Two weeks ago, someone came to my back door (kitchen door) with a pair of scissors and chopped my mini rose flower (my mother and my younger brother’s gift) off (on Nov 7th), and someone also came to my back door with a pair of scissors and chopped my plastic door mat’s daisy flower’s petal off (on Nov 9th)…

It’s very scary… I have made police reports about these incidents…

I have been having bad luck with upstairs neighbor for long time…after former upstairs neighbor (http://yokofujimoto.blogspot.com/2017/05/my-last-email-to-upstairs-neighbor.html) moved out, I was praying for a new upstairs neighbor who is a morning & quiet person… but my instinct told me one month ago, “you will get a new upstairs tenant who is a night p…
