Snow in Osaka, Japan

Leave a comment


This is the first time in Osaka, that the snow accumulated to more than 2 centimeters. When it snow here in Osaka, just one time and then after a while will be melted.


We joined the house build trip of Sekisui House Builder in Kyoto. Pretty much the same as the other builders. But, we will see if the sales agents are very patience to wait for us to decide.

We checked also the ABC Housing near the Lalaport Expo City Mall. (the big mall). Kids enjoyed free ride in a mini train and feeding the birds.

Before we go home, we first stop in a Ramen Restaurant. Great for Chilly Weather!

Finally, playing & enjoying the snow fall.

I also upload a quick video in my youtube channel.

This is our first time to watch Illumination thing. We had to drive going here, but before that we stop over first in a playground for the kids to play.

it’s quite big playground and they said when its spring or fall season there is nearby strawberry field. We will try on the spring break of the kids the strawberry picking.


Very Help MAP (literally) 😀

We have fun time in a pool but its a bit cold and then hot spring (onsen) with swimming wear because mix (female and male) then, inside the dressing area there is also naked hot spring (onsen) to try. Cool and it’s really nice place to relax. We didn’t try the hot rock and some massage service there as we already had it in Minoh (near our place).

Please have time to watch the video below. I also posted to my youtube account.

2017 Bullet Journal

Leave a comment

I started my bullet journal last year to be exact April 2016… I realized it really help me a lot to be better me. I mean organized and not forgetting some little to do things in the house and also for my kids as well. Good reminders also… Here’s my first bullet layout I made.

Now, I have changed my Notebook and also the layout. I wanted my journal to be weekly layout so, that’s easy to manage. Last time I separated my trackers and cleaning schedule but hard to manage. At least, in a glance you will see all the information on my bullet journal.

my first page was the calendar (in Japanese) then next was birthdays (usually families and close friends) and also special occasion


This is my favorite… I doodle all i want to do, to go and to have…

films/movies, TV series, When did i Last… and Weight Loss (Diet)

As you can see, I also put some sticky mark on the side easy to navigate as well and also added Monthly Journal Prompts. (all links below) Once again thanks for the uploader in Pinterest site it really helps me to set up my bullet journal.

I hope this will help you to start your bullet journal for this year!

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a great day!

Essential Oils for Cooking

Leave a comment

This is my first time to attend cooking lesson for essential oils. My halfy Friend (Half Brazilian-japanese) invited me to attend cooking lesson with Essential Oils.

I had a great time and seeing familiar faces. Actually, the place we had is our formerly area we used to live in just nearby. So, moms from the Nursery also join us. Great to seeing them and my Japanese really practice well.


Above the recipe we use with Essential oils. We also cooked Chicken Pie soup and Chicken Pie. I also search some recipe for you to try as well using essential oils.


Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a great day!
