Dinner with Akitoshi



A friend of mine asked for a dinner with her son this evening, we met up with Akitoshi and his mom at Lauderdale, Roppongi Hills. Kids couldn't play together very much, though we all had fun and enjoyed good food!

Cakes from Mornington Crescent

 Lemon meringue pie for boy.
 Lemon meringue pie and Victoria cake for girl.
Carrot cake for papa.

We went to check out Mornington Crescent this morning. This bakery opens once a month for regular sale, as it's main business is catering and baking classes. So, when we get there, already a long line of people ahead of us. Ended up waiting more than an hour, we managed to get some cakes for there to eat, and more to take back home for later. Kids managed waiting fine, and they enjoyed their own selection of sweets as for their lunch. And, the cakes are great, awesome homemade cakes!!

Kids' karaoke dinner

Met up with 2 other moms we've met at the hospital at birth of Ton for Karaoke dinner with kids. Oh the girls loved singing, off course, songs from Frozen. Boys, well, not very happy with loud sound, though they had fun eating and dancing. Moms couldn't talk very much though it was great for kids. Ton told me it was her first karaoke, and was very fun. Maybe we'll do it again...?

Sharing an umbrella with Doraemon at Roppongi Hills.

Movie time


Went to a Ghibli movie "When Marnie Was There" with Ton. She was happy with popcorn, though when it started, she left for bathroom and stayed there for more than 30 min. She was scared to watch the movie so it was the boycott. Anyhow, drugged her out of bathroom, made her seated with popcorn. And she made it through to the end. Small progress...?
