I love to go for a fishing but hubby never do it since we got married. He said, he did it once but he did not catch any fish. It was so funny but I wanna try it then. I found a very nice lake and famous in VA Fishing ground. It is Smith Mountain Lake where there are lots of things to do. This is a cool place for hiking trails, boating, camping, picnics, fishing and many more. If you like nature then this is a place for you to explore. They have also public and private golf course to enjoy. If you love golf then this is the best place to come during summer. Lots of activities we can do here in Smith Mountain Lake, just visit the link in here for more information.

We were invited to come in his house. He is a nice guy and even his wife was so nice. They have two kids with them Ian and Dylan. They are kind of shy type kids, never talk to us but it seemed they are good kid. This kids love to play video games and even on their computer. They are nice though. I am hoping and praying that they are always our friends and treated us family here. The PSNS Command is pretty new here. I love to make friends with them and even to the other guys that come at the get together. Brian and I are planning to invite them in our house warming thing. I am thinking two weeks after we move. I knew we are settld in about two weeks.
They have a nice Japanese house that they rented. The place is big but the hallway is a little bit narrow than the place we are going to rent. Oh well, what do you expect in here. They have a little land to spend here in Japan and they could not afford to leveled their land and build more homes. Tom's wife Christy, she loves flowers and even foliage plants and I think we have in common with that. She definitely loves plants. She has potted plants in the outside and more in the inside too. That is what Brian want me to do. A little bit of everything because the place that we have is not that big space for roses. I will plant roses and I am thinking two in a pots.

Buddha at Hase Kamakura
We just had an afternoon visit to Hase, Kamakura. We went and see the big buddha and it is really faschinating to see the Japanese people touching the thing-the thing which is round and has a smoke coming out. I am not sure what was that. I don't know why they touch it and I know that is a form of their worshipping their gods and it maybe the one they called it Shinto god. I am not sure then and I just need to research with that.

Visit in New York is worth of experiencing it by tours
I just love to go for a tours but we mostly go with buses but this kind of tours that I seen is pretty much different from New York City bus tours. When you book at this site www.familyinnewyork.com for your NY tours. They will take you by subway where the New Yorkers ride everyday and to the places that you wanted to go, your feet is stepping in and not only seen at the side of the road. They will take you to places, restaurants and any other places around New York. If you are adventurous enough then this is a great tours for you. Just visit the site and you and your family or friends will enjoy visiting any beautiful places in New York. Just let them know what places you like to see and I just love the idea that they treated you as there family. Their tours varies in different prices and it is on the group of 8 as always. Which is really comfortable. I think being a tourist guide is pretty cool and you learn lots of stuff around the neighborhood in NY.
During the booking for your tours, pls be meticulous enough to the places where you wanted to go. So you will be sure that your tours is worth to be remembered and you have lots of pictures to fill in your album.

I was really happy that Benjamin settle down and looking forward to play in the playground. I am so thankful for Rene, she is my new friend here in Japan. She is older than me but I like her. I just remembered Brian's Aunt when I look at her and I think that is why I like her. She is very nice lady and mind you! she loves to talk where I love to talk.
I called her about 9:35 and asked if she could take us to the playground that she was talking about. She offered us to take us there and I was so glad. We left here at about 10:22 where we catch the bus so there is no need for us to ride a cab which we pay for it. Bus is free. I love free stuff LOL.
Benjamin was enjoying to play in the playground, he was playing with Japanese kids and I am not sure how old are those kids. I bet they are 5 or 6 years old. Benjamin was playing with them eventhough they talk Japanese. I am not sure if Ben understand it. Benjamin was really happy that he finally play with other kids. He loves the ball and the next time we will be going there, we will bring a ball. So I will share photos here on my next post. I need to upload my pictures to my computer. CIAO!

Custom made jewelry for you from AJ's Jewelry store online
When I am looking at the jewelry store and look at those beautiful rings, necklaces and everything. I always wished into my mind that I just want to have a custom made jewelry which I design by myself. It has a sense of personal touch eventhough I did not make it by myself. There is a pride of myself that I design my own ring. Oh by the way, I can wear only rings and I am not wanting to wear necklaces because I always have an itch on my neck after I wear it. I am also sloppy to wear wrist jewelry. So then I am always fascinated with those jewelries that I could not wear. I just receive a custom made jewelry as an heirloom to my hubby's Aunt. She was giving me some beautiful jewelries and I wonder where did she got it. She live in Brooklyn, NY before and it might be she got it from AJ's Jewelry.
Most women are fascinated with jewelries and I think AJ's Jewelry is the best store to go when it comes to custom made jewelry. The owner will be pleased to see you. You better think what kind of stone you want for your rings, necklaces or earrings. I just love to acquire a big princess cut diamond- they said that diamond is forever. But I like you to come on their site, they have lots and lots of jewelry that you can look up either platinum, gold, diamond, titanium, sterling silver, children's jewelry, designer and many more.
If it happens that you can go to Ridgewood NY, don't forget to check this store AJ's Jewelry. Just pop on their site and look for driving directions.

Found a place to live
Brian and I were so busy looking with the perfect place to live for three years here in Japan. We were considering to get a typical Japanese house but then we could not afford the stairs climbing up and down. It is very steep and it is dangerous for Mary. I love the second house that we saw because there is 3 rooms that is tatami mats. It is really Japanese.
The place we found is the apartment complex which is Japanese WEstern style place. There is no stairs and no worries for Mary that she fell down. It is three bedroom and has a tatami room for entertaining and of course with the kitchen, dining and has extra living room where we could put our sofa. The tatami room is where we are going to entertain our guests and the extra room where we put our computers for Brian, Ben and Mine. We put a space also for Mary. We can see the water in one corner and I just love it.
This place they called them Nobi and it is 20 minutes away from Brian's work by train. We are planning to get a car as soon as we are settle down. We are near at the market, the train station I think it is about 5 minutes walk and the public bus. Mostly Japanese walk and ride in a train or a public bus. Their gas is very expensive compared to American price. We were advised to get a gas inside the base or else we are paying a lot.
There are a lot of things that I see when I observing how the Japanese people live. I am very curious to know. This is where we started our Japan tours. I will post photos here. Thanks for coming and read my blog.

Brian and I were started looking for different houses here in Japan last Thursday afternoon. We first went to the house which is the road is so narrow and it is scary to drive. Japan is a nice country, the people are nice too. Oh boy! the house that we first saw was really nice but the road is not ok with me to drive the car. It is very narrow and I don't like to walk in a very hilly road. That was our first choice with regards to the distance to the work of Brian but then I dislike the road. The agent was so nice but then she brought us this place which is scary road to drive lol. She brought us to the next one which is really Japanese style of home. I really like it but then our queen size bed does not fit to go upstairs. I just love that house but we are also considering the furnitures that we brought. We wished we did not bring our furniture. I just want to have a Japanese living room for entertainment our guest. I just love to have one. I know that Japanese people will appreciate my effort to make it. The tatami mats really impressed me how cool to have one in my own home in WA. The third house that we saw is nice, it was built 1987. It has a big kitchen but the hallway is so narrow and our sofas does not fit on it because it is kind of fat lol.. I just love the second house, it has 3 rooms that has tatami mats but I dislike the kitchen- it is on the old side. The sink is kind of dirty look and I am very particular with the kitchen look.There is another agent that brought us to their vacant apartments. I just like it, there is one tatami mats in a living room, and the rest are wood floors. Brian hate wood floor but we were talking of putting an area rug. Wood floors are cold during winter. Tomorrow Sunday, We are going to have another agent to meet but I am committed to this place. We brought Benjamin's power wheels so he can run his car going to the park. I just love the location because it is on the ground floor and there is no stairs. When we were looking to that 3 previous houses, Brian and I think right away that it is really dangerous for Mary that she gonna fell down on the stairs. That was our big concern. I just love this place anyways. It is a combination of a western and Japanese type of complex.
I was glad when Brian check our bank online, our cash advance is already there and we are going to use for the deposti, one month advance rent, agent fee and owner's fee. Oh boy! I think it will be totalled to more than 8 thou $. I am hoping that we don'thave any problem with the pay for our rent. It is hard for us this time because we still paying our 2 cars eventhough it is on consignment right now.. got to go.. CIAO
