Luggage Lore

Luggage Lore

For my upcoming trip, I needed new luggage. Of all my tasks in preparing for this trip, this proved to be my least favourite. But it needed to be done. I fully admit to not being a light packer, and on top of that, I buy a lot of souvenirs and gifts back whenever I go to Japan. A huge chunk of what I buy are actually gifts for family and friends, but I am not above treating myself, either. With all that I take and bring with me, I’ll need some good luggage. The one I had broke, though, so it was time for me to consider some new ones.

They are both apps/websites that I tried after seeing or hearing about it from my blog buddies. Check out the two things I’ve been loving the past few weeks.

Timeless Thoughts: Video Game Voyages

Timeless Thoughts

The past few days have been difficult for me. Actually, this entire week at work tested my patience, and I had a hard time keeping my temper in check. There were only two things that made this week bearable for me. The first thing — I treated myself to a new techno gadget. The second thing is knowing that my Hakodate trip is just around the corner. In my free time, I planned and budgeted for my trip. My mind is filled with nothing but Hakodate, and this led me to reminiscence why I picked Hakodate in the first place. My reasons are perfect for this month’s Timeless Thoughts entry. Georgie and I co-host this monthly link-up, and I am hosting again for this month. If you would like to participate, you’re more than welcome to join our link-up by submitting your entry with the link-up widget located at the end of this entry!

Symphonic Selections: Piano Concerto No. 1 ~ Second Movement

Symphonic Selections

The song for this month’s Symphonic Selections was chosen almost randomly because I was listening to one of my favourite concertos on a whim. While listening, I was doing my nightly skincare prep, and I was in auto-pilot mode, so my mind wasn’t entirely with the music. But somehow or another, when the concerto made it to the second movement, the piece penetrated my fuzzy brain. I listened closer and squealed in delight, for it was a perfect spring-like piece to feature for March!
