#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.

#271-Why people fight?

Why do human beings keep fighting with each other or fighting wars?

About profit?

About territory?

About religion?

About ethnicity?

About statism?

About collectivism?



Why can’t we talk instead of fight (war)?

People are trying to change others…

People don’t want to change for others…

People think “I am right, you are wrong”…



I was thinking about “how can we resolve issues of terrorism and war in this world, can we talk instead of fighting?”



And then I realized “I need to think about my issue first” (since I moved into my apartment in Montrose one year ago)… yes, I have an issue about my living situation… my upstairs neighbor (64 years old woman who is not working) has been waking me up every night (around 11:15pm, 12:15am and 1:15am) with loud squeezing footsteps (it sounds not normal & regular footsteps) for one year… I had to call police twice, and I fought with this neighbor twice…



I tried to go to bed at the same time when this neighbor goes to bed… it doesn’t work (for me late night ene…

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…

#273- My last email to an upstairs neighbor

After I watched abc TV 20/20 CATFISH episode (Hooking a Catfish) “How this Canadian woman catfished an NBA star and an aspiring model, almost ruining their lives” (http://abcnews.go.com/US/canadian-woman-catfished-nba-star-aspiring-model-ruining/story?id=46778331) , I totally understood about how my upstairs neighbor (woman) is thinking…
These sick women are boring about their lives and they want to make other people miserable like them.
As I wrote my blog post on April 19, 2017, I’m having a trouble with an upstairs neighbor… I was very angry but lately I feel sorry for her… she is a lonely woman (she only goes out two hours per week for grocery shopping, she doesn’t have any visitors, she is similar to that Canadian woman) and she wants someone’s attention to make her life excite and fun (in this case “evil fun”)…

For me no matter what, I’m always happy… I appreciate my life…

















Today after I saw this upstairs woman was walking around my home and peeking my home (where I sit or what am I …
