Our wedding tree

Finally... I unpacked the envelope from our wedding reception desk and got the wedding tree sheet out. It's been almost half a year!

Got the wooden frame from MUJI and put the wedding tree in the frame... And voila!

Ah.. The memory...

I Won't Give Up by Jason Mraz

I love the new Jason Mraz album...
of course the melody is great but I just love the lyrics of I won't give up!! Rachel of "glee" sang the song on the show too.

"I Won't Give Up" by Jason Mraz

When I look into your eyes
It's like watching the night sky
Or a beautiful sunrise
There's so much they hold

And just like them old stars
I see that you've come so far
To be right where you are
How old is your soul?

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up

And when you're needing your space
To do some navigating
I'll be here patiently waiting
To see what you find

'Cause even the stars they burn
Some even fall to the earth
We've got a lot to learn
God knows we're worth it
No, I won't give up

I don't wanna be someone who walks away so easily
I'm here to stay and make the difference that I can make
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
The tools and gifts we got yeah, we got a lot at stake
And in the end, you're still my friend at least we did intend
For us to work we didn't break, we didn't burn
We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
I had to learn what I've got, and what I'm not
And who I am

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up
Still looking up.

I won't give up on us (no I'm not giving up)
God knows I'm tough enough (I am tough, I am loved)
We've got a lot to learn (we're alive, we are loved)
God knows we're worth it (and we're worth it)

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up

Apple TV in the house!

Apple TV has arrived!!

We had been thinking of getting it ever since we helped Goto-sensei set up his Apple TV 2 weeks ago...

Apple TV arrived earlier yesterday morning and the hdmi cable came later cuz I had to order it separately on Amazon. As soon as it arrived, Masahiro convinced me to connect them on my own... At first I thought it's gonna be all fussy and hard but it turns out to be piece of cake!

The setup was done within minutes.., I think it took me more time for finding the jack of hdmi cable behind our TV.. Hee!

We watched a few indie short films and YouTube videos... Fanatastic resolution too.

We just need to get Ethernet cable to make sure the streaming is faster for mirroring... The mirroring for Hulu+ is slow and botchy with just Wifi...

Once it's fixed... Yay Hulu on TV!!!

Annular Solar Eclipse

In Japanese, it's called 金環日食 and people have been making a big fuss over it. The special kind of glasses used to watch the eclipse got hiked up the prices and some of them are simply outrageously expensive, considering they are all made of paper and some black film!

Anyway, Masahiro and I went to bed early last night and got up around 6:50AM this morning to see the eclipse by our house. At first we were just watching it on TV but then as it got closer and closer (the peak time in Tokyo is 7:35AM), we just ran out with our glasses.

It was interesting and we actually got to see the eclipse really clearly with our glasses! I also tried to take photos with my iPhone, through the glasses. It's not too bad!

I'm so glad that I got to witness this once in a life time experience with my hubby!

Here's me trying on the glasses the night before!

 It was cloudy and overcast in Tokyo but we could see the ring through the clouds! Too bad it doesn't show on the photo...

This is the photo I took with the iPhone lens through the glasses... Hmmm not bad, eh?!

5 things to do when trying to conceive

I should probably start right this moment...
Well, the thing is I've been trying to eat healthy but it's not as easy as you think!

Here we go!

I have always wanted to have a baby...
The urge got so much more after seeing so many friends getting pregnant and having babies.

The facebook newsfeed surely isn't helping.

Last week Thursday just had period and now I'm officially ready for next cycle and hoping to get pregnant this month.

Tonight hubby and I are going to stay at a hotel before heading to Tokyo Disneyland on Wednesday. Maybe this could be the day we conceive??!! hee

Wish me luck!

Yoiko live!

Today Masahiro and I went to see comedian live by Yoiko.

We walked so long from the parking lot in shinjuku to the theatre. I was wearing heels and my feet were killing me...

The live show was really good and I'm glad that we got the tix!

The song that hubby thought of...

It's been almost 1 and a half year since hubby proposed to me on the eve of my 30th birthday.

He said that he had thought of this song by Saito Kazuyoshi when thinking of the way to propose...

Here's the lyrics to the song: 歌うたいバラード.

I actually am not that taken with the original... My hubby sings the song better.. Her

Today should be a new day

I had thought that life would be so much easier after I have a man and get married.

However, all is not that easy!

Our Wedding Ring

Saruwatari-san, our engagement/wedding ring maker has sent us photos she took of our wedding rings...I can't believe how awesome the photos turn out. I've been wearing the ring since the wedding and I still can't believe the first time I saw the completed work. She's truly amazing!

Here's the photo that I also arranged with iPhone app to add some effect...
