Today was wonderful!

I woke up late. Meep. It’s my fault Ranulf didn’t get to go to the
sword museum or the flea market, but I think he enjoyed himself
nonetheless. We went shopping with Asami, Tomoko and Moon Ki in
Harajuku and Akihabara. Ranulf buy a kimono, a fan, and a few other
souvenir items.

After seeing how useful cellphones were in coordinating everything, I
decided to get one as well. It was a good thing Asami and Tomoko came
along. They helped me find a simple prepaid phone. =) The cheapest
model wasn’t in stock, but the second-cheapest one was still okay. I’m
learning to think of things in terms of my daily living allowance
instead of in terms of Philippine pesos.

On the way back, Ranulf and I ran into a poi/staff/fan/drums group
practicing in Yoyogi Park. Apparently, they practice there every third
Sunday. Wow! I was so lucky to catch them. Seeing them, I decided to
get the staff back from Ranulf so that I can really learn how to use
it. <grin> They’re amazing! They execute complicated moves so
gracefully… I definitely have to practice so that I can make the
most of those sessions. I’m looking forward to the next one!

What a wonderful weekend. =)
