#180- I love U.S.A. and American people!

Ms.R. R, the owner of SquaresVille (Vintage Store at 1800 N, Vermont Ave., Los Angeles, CA / in Los Feliz) had invited me to her house BBQ party on 4th of July yesterday.

Two hours of cooking (My signature sandwiches are Tuna salad sandwiches & Egg salad sandwiches / Thanks to Japanese mayonnaise!) later, I was at her party.


I LOVE AMERICAN PEOPLE:

It was wonderful party, because Ms. R.R has many nice friends and family.

Mr.N & Ms.E told me that they have been to Japan and they love Japan. It was so nice to hear that people love Japan (my country!). Mr.N is Ms.R.R’s childhood friend since 4 years old.

I can trust people who have long time great friends.

I really like Ms.R.R, she has such a warm & kind personality. It really makes sense why her store is so popular (especially for celebrities!). Great energy attracts great energy :)

Ms.R is a nice friend of Ms.R.R. She is also sweet & funny like Ms.R.R. She gave me some great life messages today.


I LOVE FOOD:

Foods and drinks were great too.

I had White Wine, Shangri-La, Chips & Salsa, a lot of BBQ Chicken, Salad and Cucumber Rice.

Mr.J’s BBQ Chicken was soooooo gooooood! and Ms.S (who is his girlfriend)’s salad was soooooo gooooood! too. They are nice couple (= great cooking team = great love energy).

Mr.R & his wife are so in love. I enjoyed watching them. They have been married 12 years, but they look like “they just got married”.


I LOVE 4TH OF JULY:

One of my favorite holidays is 4th of July, because I love U.S.A. and I love American people.

Cool music and Fireworks made me feel like “I love U.S.A. and I appreciate to live here”.


ENJOY EVERY MOMENT OF OUR LIFE:

At the party, one man collapsed and LAFD came and they took him to the hospital. (I hope he is ok…)

I really think that life is very short, we better to enjoy every moment of our life.

Ms.R.R was so sweet that she went to the hospital… I really like her very much. She is the best hostess at the party.


P.S. Ms. R is promoting the event, ESPY 20 on July 11th, noon – 6pm at Nokia Plaza L.A. LIVE. She said, “Free admission!” If you are interested in this event, enjoy!

P.S.2 Mr.M had to leave the party earlier, because he had to work last night. Let’s make him happy! He is a manager at the bar, TRUNKS BAR (8809 Santa Monica Blvd. West Hollywood, CA 90069). If you feel like to drink in West Hollywood, go to see him and drink & enjoy!

#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).




#257- SLUT? in L.A.

Do you know about “The Slut”?I mean, “eggslut”?

If you don’t, you will enjoy my column on Senken-Shimbun (major Japanese fashion business newspaper) website.

Here is my translation of my column into English from Japanese.
Enjoy :)

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…
