Once again.. Shopping day !

Hey hey !

After I got finished with that dude hacking me, things got better. Saturday we had a crazy rain and wind here at Chiba and my brilliant idea was to go to wallmart quickly to get some food with my girl and on our way there “I” broke two umbrellas.. well the wind did ! Also my shoes got very wet and more broken heh I have to buy new shoes this week!

Got a love the way Japanese dry their umbrellas after a rainy day.
Heavy rain yesterday, poor umbrellas.

Sunday started great, my girl made us delicious breakfast with bacon,french toast and salad. Already at 9am the sky was clear and the sun was shining with +20celcius!

We left to Lalaport at Minami-funabashi and after that had a stop at Ikea to see the Christmas decorations and of course eat the meatballs there.

Lalaport is a big mall, great place to do some shopping. You can find Lalaport in many places (including chiba.tokyo and Yokohama). Little tip don’t go there on weekend, its full of people 😀

On our way to Lalaport, a lot of Christmas things everywhere!

It’s a bit normal to see English and other languages behind some products but to see Finnish is a bit rare !

These are sooo delicious ! Next time I go there I will buy a big bag.. mmm or maybe in Costco ! better prices !

If you now live in Tokyo or coming to Tokyo for Christmas and thinking “where should I buy a Christmas tree?” think no further !
Depends which you like more plastic or a real tree.
1. Plastic you can buy pretty much every where, including Ikea.

2.But if you are like me and want a real tree, go to Ikea they have real trees outsides in many sizes and are surprisingly cheap !

We ate at Ikea of course like the tradition goes. I had my 20 meatballs and my girl had 15meatballs (women size) .

After ikea we went to Nishi-Funabashi station to change trains back to Tozai line and in there is a great “gaijin shop” a shop full of things from US and Europe. Like this !

It looked like there was no end to the rain so we decided to have a little break and the nearest coffee shop.

We were playing with my ipad a little Tower madness and before me noticed the rain had stopped and we could get going back home !
