Today, I felt like a human again after being gone for 2months... having mani/pedi, waxing, derma & a new haircut! I met up couple of people to give their pabili's from U.S. then went to see Irma Cano of Hair & Make Up Salon for my usual haircut fix! (I love her btw been my hairstylist for 4yrs!) called Bianca if she want to meet for some coffee talks that ended into a 7hrs. conversation till dinner time to little Tokyo. Food coma.

My luggage's are left behind in transit...

My luggage's didn't make it to my connection flight in Beijing from New York. My flight from JFK was delayed for an hour because of air traffic & bad weather. 20mins. to spare barely making it to my transfer. Finally, touchdown Manila! low and behold as passengers slowly decreasing & baggage belt conveyor stop rotating my fear came to reality... my luggage's didn't make it. My entire kit/brushes & new purchases are in one god damn suitcase w/o padlocking it weighing 27kgs. fuck fuck fuck. It might arrive in Tuesday?!!!! great.

05.18.11 Gari of Sushi, Artichoke & James Vincent workshop

Finally, I was able to eat at Sushi of Gari. Verdict: pricy for a simple sushi but very good.
Western style toilets in Japan often feature options such as a heated ring, a built-in shower and dryer for your behind and an automatic lid opener. Both Western and Japanese style toilets usually have two flush modes: "small" (小) and "large" (大), differing in the amount of water used-- I love it!
Walked around the neighborhood where Sushi of Gari (Gari46) is located. Lots of interesting restaurant.
46th st. by 9th avenue is an interesting dining neighborhood.
And so after working my appetite grabbing Artichoke for my dinner before my workshop starts. Yes, Artichoke failed me once again. FAIL for the 2nd time. I wonder why people like it?! is it me?! LOL
I love my class with James Vincent. tackled on some skin issues that I've always wondered thoughts about.
