Happy New Year friends !!! Aah am so happy that finally am back to my darling “my dear u” 🙂 🙂
Hubby had a week long vacation and those of u know us that says it all 😉
Actually,this time of year Japan has a long holiday…generally starting from Dec 30..and hubby took two more days off prior to that making it a holiday week from Dec 28th-Jan 4th and then 2 working days after,a long weekend of 3 days again ! So actually the office season has started from today and am sooo missing him ! Last thursday when he went to office after the holiday week he sent me a cute ‘miss u’ card 🙂
On 28th we went shopping for snow-boots and gloves/thermals for our upcoming trip to Hokkaido coming month.29th lazying around at home with good movies and good food 😉 30th we went to the Madame Tussaud’s wax museum’s temporary exhibits held at Odaiba.I had a lovely time hugging Bruce Willis,while hubby..being the man he is,could undoubtedly resist the gorgeous ladies like Katie Holmes/Angelina Jolie/Kylie Minogue 😉 After a starry evening with the likes of Brad Pitt,Angelina,Bruce,Jackie and the King of Pop, we did something very very special for each other…we actually dipped our hands in hot wax to say “I LOVE UU” forever !! And because u all are so special to us,we share it with u too…our first pic for u to say how much we love u 🙂 🙂
Yes those are our hands and we so love these !!! Actually what happened is after a long wait of an hour,when it was our turn,it didn’t quite come out well the first time as it was a bit difficult gesture/shape and we felt a bit sad…and then the two girls at the counter doing the moulds took only half the price and said we can try again in half an hour !! And so after a talk with Jackie Chan,Beckham and Spiderman,we were back to try again and voila there we got it right ! We had to !! Didn’t we 😉 🙂
Then on the last day of last year..we spent it the Japanese way…having Yaki-tori in the evening and then visiting the Zojoji temple at night to greet the New Year with 3000 balloons and to seek His blessings for the new year with our first prayers of the New Year.You can see the fun here. 🙂 🙂
On 1st and 2nd of Jan we went Fukubukuro shopping…’lucky bags’ full of surprises !!! See my post here to see what we got !!!
3rd we spent enjoying at home and 4th we ran a few required errands…5th and 6th went off in winding up for the long weekend..over which we cozied up at home sweet home with lots of good movies,good food and good love 😉
And yea it goes without saying how much we missed everyone back home…and just to say.. “we are with u…always !” this new year we sent both the families a custom-made calendar with some of the best snaps we had taken last year.
This year would be our last year here in Tokyo.As much we would miss this awesome place..we equally look forward to spending the next New Year with our family back home.
Love u all !!! May this year chime in the best of health and happiness for us all !
