An arm and a leg for dry cleaning... lol...

Recently, our company released a bulletin saying that Cool Biz season is over. (Cool Biz is the term used for the summer dress code.) That means it's back to long sleeves and neckties. That means it's going to cold again really soon. (Actually, it has already started to get cooler. Lol!)

Sooo, to prep for the change in season and the change in dress code, I had to bring out the long sleeves and winter clothes from the depths (?) of my closet. Haha!

The pieces need to be dry cleaned. The shirts were okay to be washed at home since they're just my regular shirts. Hehe!

But the neckties and the winter coats had to be brought to a professional dry cleaner.

I could have taken them to the neighborhood dry cleaner but I chose to take them to this shop... in Tokyo Station... in Daimaru. Lol!

When I was in Singapore, I did use professional dry cleaners for the CdG Shirt shirts. The cost was okay.

Two weeks ago, I took the pieces to Daimaru. When I saw the bill, I laughed out loud with the shop assistant. LoloL!

Let's see - 1 Fred Perry winter jacket; 1 Comme des Garcons Homme jacket; 1 Burberry trench coat; 3 Comme des Garcons Shirtshirts; 4 Comme des Garcons Homme Deux neckties.

The price I paid could've bought me 10 new business shirts at Uniqlo. Lol!

Sometimes it makes me wonder I had to choose a Burberry trench over a trench from <...>. Lol! It was approved by Tipz though. In fact, there was some intercontinental consultation for that trench. Haha! It was one of the best purchases though. Seriously. (I actually can't wait to wear it again. Lol!)

Oh well... in Tagalog, anong magagawa ko. in Singlish, so how. in Japanese,しょうがない (shouganai).

Btw, I got my dry cleaning and the shop did an amazing job. Hehe!

Tired. Lol.

I don't know if it's because of the weather, the workload, or both? Haha!

Monday was crazy busy. Yesterday was also busy. Today was also busy.

I'm really grateful for the work and I really love teaching... but I wish I knew where to get more energy.


There's a long weekend coming up next week. I hope it would be sunny on October 8. I want to go hiking or on a day trip outside Tokyo.

Saturday izakaya night...

I went to an izakaya with a friend last night.

Yesterday wasn't a really busy day so I wasn't that tired.

I was hungry though. Really hungry.

I didn't have time to properly eat the entire day. Haha!

I only managed to eat a scone from Starbucks.

So, after work, I was just sluggish and almost dizzy.

Thankfully, my friend had the bright idea of going to an izakaya. Except for the smoke from cigarettes, I think izakayas are always a great idea! Haha! =)

Productive day at the library...

I have a proper two-day break this week. Yay!

Tomorrow is a holiday and I decided not to work tomorrow. Today, I also don't have work. Yay!

So, I originally planned to head to Senjogahara in Nikko to hike. However, a typhoon is hit Tokyo this weekend so I'm stuck in town. Thankfully, it's not like any typhoon I had experienced in the Philippines.

I managed to get out of the house and I spent the entire day at the library.

Yup, it was actually a productive day. I arrived at the library at 9:20AM. The library opened at 9:30. I've been in the library since then.

I managed to finish a lot today.

Tomorrow, I might spend the day here again if it's open.

Hello, September...

Can't believe it's already September.

I've got a few things to write about.

Hopefully, I'll find time to do it soon...
