Train Day

If you have to stay in, there’s nothing more fun than playing with some model trains. Honestly, who doesn’t love trains?

How do you spend your quarantine ?

One of the things I’ve been enjoying during this quarantine is cooking. I wouldn’t say I hadn’t cooked before, but it was just easy to buy something from the deli at the supermarket or eat out on working days.
Recently, on top of cooking regular meals, I started baking!! I’m usually not so strict about my diet, but last week I baked some cake with rice flour, which doesn’t have gluten. When it comes to ingredients, I like to use healthy alternatives!!

Doctor Jesse

I get a lot of questions about what I do on my days off. One thing that we like to do at my house is play games. This classic American game, called Operation, is keeping us busy these days. It’s a fun skill game where each person gets to operate on the patient. The best surgeon is the winner!

Playing pool

If you’re looking for a good way of keeping busy and avoiding crowds, how about playing pool? I used to play in a league in England and it’s a lot of fun.

Recently a friend of mine told me about a good drill to improve positional play. You make a square in the middle of the table with 4 chalks and you have to make the white ball go back to that square after each shot. It’s more difficult than it looks!

Exotic restaurant

This is an exotic restaurant in Nippori that I went to about a few weeks ago. Before going there, my friend told me there was an interesting place that I might be fascinated with. And yes!! She was right !! I absolutely loved this place. Not only did the atmosphere impress me but also I was quite satisfied with the amount of food! I can’t wait to go back there!

Craney Day

It’s fun seeing these two huge cranes in action. They are working on a cool project next to Chiba Park. They’re replacing the bike racing track and the new one is going to be a dome! I can’t wait to see it! Are there any big construction projects happening around your house or office?

Back to the future the musical

A friend of mine in England went to see this musical last week. I’m not really a big fan of musicals, but I think this one looks really good. I love the movie and I hope I get the chance to see how it works as a musical.

Are there any classic movies that you would like to see turned into musicals?

Rainbow in the sky

I saw this cool rainbow in Chiba the other day. I’d never seen one like this before. It was only a partial rainbow and it was directly overhead. It looked like the sky was smiling 😊 at me.
Have you ever seen an unusual rainbow?
