The new iPhone is out but I don’t even have a slightest desire to get a new one. Even after NTT Docomo now also starts offering the new iPhone. Although I’m excited that iPhone is finally available on NTT Docomo but I think am going to wait until the next iPhone 6 is out. I’m using iPhone 5 now and pretty happy with it.
I’m going to wait at least until my 2-year contract with Softbank ended next year around fall. That reminds me that I do still have my Docomo phone but I don’t use it as much as I use my Softbank phone. I only use my docomo keitai phone for emergency calls since their signal is FAR better than Softbank one.

Comments Off on Prices hikes
Just had grocery shopping at Marunaka and realised that they’ve raised the prices almost for everything.
I can’t believe one Apple cost ¥158 yen. It used to be only ¥99 yen. Three carrot cost me ¥198 yen, and it used to be ¥98-99 yen.
Need to cut down on my expense from now on because I read that the Japanese government planning to raise the consumption tax from 5% to 8% starting next month and 10% starting 2015. I know it’s probably nothing compare to other countries like Brazil and India but still it is going to hit Japan economy quite hard.

Comments Off on Summer Vacation is Over
Risa’s summer vacation is over. Back to school to our regular schedule.
Risa’s first say at school after the along summer vacation was okay. Her teacher said that she talks a lot 🙂
Second day, Risa was a bit cranky and she cried when I dropped her at school. Hopefully she’ll adjust well soon enough.
Anyway, don’t have much going on in my life. Had my birthday a few weeks ago and it was ok. SILs was visiting and she got me a birthday cake. I’m thankful enough to have great SILs. But I didn’t get myself any birthday present since I already have everything so no self-birthday present this year.But maybe I’ll get it when I finally have something I really want LOL.
I can’t believe I am now 34 years old. Time flies so quick! I remember started blogging when I was 23 years old. My first blog was hosted on blogspot.com. Then I moved to Blurty, then moved again to Live Journal and finally decided to host my own blog on angelsheart.net.
A few years later I changed my domain to a new one, it’s called Chocolive.net and stayed for a while. And last on 2007, I moved to another new domain leony.net and here I am at last settled down and trying to keep up with updating my blog which is not easy since I kind of lost interest on blogging after my husband passed away two and half year ago.

Summer vacation already started and the heat is quite severe, so we don’t really go out that much other than to the mall and Summer Festival Yosakoi in Nankoku. Anyway here are some pictures of Risa’s Pre School summer activity, Yusuzumikai Festival.
