#187- 90027

Between the deadline and the deadline, I had a great lunch time with Kimberly (my sweet, sweet friend) at her home office today.

Kimberly wrote me an email a couple of weeks ago…. “HELLO Ladybug!!! I'm now your neighbor, so I was thinking we should get together and catch up. Do you want to come by or I can visit with you?”

Me: I wanna see your new place :)

Kimberly: Lunch? x

Me: Let's do :) I will bring something!

Kimberly: You bring your smile :) 12pm ok? x

Me: 12:00pm is great :) Let me know where you are. x

Kimberly: ******** LA CA 90027 *buzz top black box x

Me: Wow, same zip code :) I will bring my famous sandwiches for us :)

Kimberly: YUM, ok I'll have very simple salad or soup.

Me: I look forward to seeing you!


[This morning…]

Kimberly: Sorry my intern D*** will be with us. I'll share my sandwich :)

Me: I can make some extra then :) xoxo

Kimberly: So sweet! x


I like Kimberly very much, because she is always sweet. Who could say always, “You bring your smile :) ” ?

I really appreciate her friendship.


*******


Kimberly is an owner of PR company, PUREconsulting (www.pureconsultinginfo.com).

Her home office & showroom is very beautiful and stylish like herself.

Many people want to work with her, because she is a very reliable person. I can trust her anything.

Today, we had my turkey hamburg[er] steak (we, Japanese people eat hamburg[er] steak as a main dish, like a meatloaf) sandwich, my coffee caramel sauce sandwich and her salad.

We had the “SEX AND THE CITY” moments and I really had a nice time with her and her intern today.

And I was a FENG SHUI counselor for her new place, but she has already great FENG SHUI at her place. She didn’t need my help.

When I got an urgent project last night (the deadline was tonight. Yes, I finished it!), I was almost going to tell her that “can I get a rain check?”, but I didn’t.

Promise is promise (especially, we made our plan long time ago) for me, and I really wanted to see her today.

I managed everything fine today. My feng shui is working as well :)

Great friends make my life colorful. Thank you for all my friends!


How was your day? I hope you had a nice day too :)

#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).

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…
