居酒屋めぐり+α

5 Jul

この間も言ったけど、天気のせいで、とても引きこもりがちな私。

でも、ここ何日かは、友達と夜遊び(嘘だけど)してるのよ。

それで、土曜日の夜、

張り切って、早めに家を出たんだけど…

いつものことながら、新宿駅で迷い。むしろ、迷いまくり。

結局、メンバーを待たせることに…。ごめんね。

チェンマイでは、いつもバッグに方位磁石を入れてたんだけど、

東京でも必要かも、私。

それくらい、極度に方向オンチ。

時々、自分でも驚きっていうか、悲しくなったり。

頭の中ですぐに地図を描けるお父さんの遺伝子は、どこへやら。

Two of my friends from Seattle, Midori and Bryan, were in Tokyo

so we all hung out with their friends on Saturday night.

We went to Shinjuku and had dinner at

世界の山ちゃん (Sekai-no Yamachan )

After food, we walked a little and went to

a gay bar called

Advocates .

Oh boy, it was so much fun.

It was raining pretty hard but we were drinking outside with others

and there was a DJ and people from

many other countries.

It took me back to Seattle for a moment.

Since I was away from Japan during the college days,

I actually don’t know that many good places to go for a night-out,

so I was very glad to know about this place.

I hope Tokyo truly becomes a comfortable place for everybody

whether you are gay, bi or straight.

I wonder if any of you know

other good bars to hang out???

Today (Monday) I had dinner with Marina-chan

who has been my best buddy since our kindergarten days.

Here is a little secret of mine…

She had…and still has big round eyes and had a white dog called Jump,

and I was secretly envious of her.

We went to an Izakaya called

井の頭 汁べゑ

(Inokashira Shirubeh)

This is a very cool place to go if you are in Kichijoji area.

All the dishes are delicious (….as far as I know)

and the people are SUPER friendly

and on top of that,  it’s a very budget-friendly place.

I had this beer that was very good

but I forgot the name already…

Ooops, this is what alcohol does to you, kids.

I will make sure to write it down the next time I am there.

Aside from those beer and dessert, we ate pretty healthy

….I think???

A terrific pudding… ❤

The surface of the pudding is burnt after you order,

and that part gets bitter-sweet and crispy.

This photo looks like an alien abduction on a pudding though.

After our stomach got satisfied,

we then wanted to satisfy our shoe-shopping cravings

but pretty much nothing was opened except for UNIQLO

inside the Yodobashi Camera building.

Temptations…

temptations….

temptations…

Tada…!

We bought matching room-wears !!

Yay!!

We are going to look like prisoners!

Just kidding. It’s more like a marine style.

Sleep over party しなきゃねー。

    I like that pudding, called creme brulee, I think. I have a plant that is just that yummy buttery yellow orange color and its name is–creme brulee.

      Oh yes, that was the name Creme Brulee 🙂
      I should have known since I love the movie Amelie so much!
