#134- Rumi Neely is in JELLY, Japanese fashion magazine

Today, I got a nice email from the chief editor, Mr.Hirotada Kase of JELLY, Japanese fashion magazine (popular for young Japanese girls, this magazine has 300,000 circulation in Japan. if you want, you can take a look at http://www.bunkasha.co.jp/magazine/g2036.html).

Mr.Hirotada Kase said in his email, “The fashion bloggers in the world feature story was the best 5 popular story by readers’ survey. Thank you for your work.” Oh…this kind of message makes me very happy as a writer.

In the middle of October(two months ago), I interviewed Ms.Rumi Neely (as you know, she is a popular fashion blogger in the world) and did fashion shoot (she showed us wonderful four looks). Her L.A. apartment is near by me, so it was so easy to get there and fun to work with her. Now I know why she is really popular for many people. She is very original. I think “original” is the key word for every thing.

I also made contact with other fashion bloggers (Ms.Gala Gonzalez, Ms.Ricarda Schernus, Ms. Louise Ebel, Ms.Tavi Gevinson, Ms.Carolina Engman and Ms. Kristin Knox). They are in these pages as well.

This JELLY magazine’s issue (which I wrote) is January, 2011 issue (came out on November 17, 2010). If you read Japanese, please take a look at this magazine at the Japanese book store.

These days, people connect to each other and work together through Blog, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace etc…amazing!

You know what? I got some projects (magazine jobs) from Japan through my old Japanese blog (http://fromla.cocolog-nifty.com/blog/ I wrote Japanese blog from October, 2005 until October, 2008).

I also met two Japanese new friends through my old Japanese blog (they made contact me!).

I reunion with two of my old friends through Facebook (they also made contact me!).

And I got a free HP Officejet 6500 Wireless All-in-One Inkjet Printer from HP through my tweet in my Twitter… this was amazing!

Play, Work/Business, Meet, Shop (or gift from the company!), Watch, Listen and Talk in the internet.

It’s the wonderful era of the internet!

What did you get through the net?

#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…
