Today was a rather productive day.
It was a beautiful sunny relatively warm day today compared to the cold rainy yesterday.
So it was the perfect day to go out and do...well...Stuff.

So I began my morning by visiting God's house, The Franciscan chapel in Roppongi. (Of course this is one of his many houses around the world.) Anyhow, it's always fun to go there and feel so part of an international community. Found out one of my new friends, graymm is also Catholic so maybe I'll have a new church-going buddy!! ^o^

After I got my prayer on, my sis and decided to try out a nearby Indian restaurant for lunch.  It was 1000 yen for a 2 curry, chai, and all you can eat nan and rice set.  Yes, that's nan AND rice at the same time...all you can eat!  A SWEET deal!  This place is prolly my favorite Indian restaurant in Tokyo because they sell the type of curry I like.  The kind that isn't too chunky or too creamy but the perfect texture of sauciness.  I definitely wanna go there again.

After we stuffed ourselves with curry, we headed to Ikebukuro where we meant to go clothes shopping but somehow...spent a little too much time browsing and purchasing from the anime/dj shops.  Bad, I know.  But, I made my first purchase of djs since summer...I got a Code Geass and Saiunkoku Monogatari DJ.  Still haven't even opened them up yet, tho.:p I'm esp. looking forward to the Code Geass one.  I wanted to buy more but woah...this wasn't a shopping spree so...

Before we knew it, it was time to leave Ikebukuro and head back towards Shinjuku to meet up with  mippa and her friends from karaoke.  There we met Kei and graymm and another friend who had to leave earlier.
We spent like 4 hours at karaoke...we were SO into it.  Dudes we gotta do it again sometime!!  It was so much fun.

A few songs on the singing roster

1.Japanese version of Mulan's Reflection
2. Suga Shikao's Manatsu no Yoru no Yume
3. Hateshinaku Tooi Sora e by The Stand Up (Kyou Kara Ma Ou Theme Song)
4. Haruka Kanata by Asian Kungfu Gen.
5. Go! by FLOW
6. Saigo no Yakusoku by Kouda Mariko (Marmalade Boy)
7. Livin' la Vida Loca by Ricky Martin

Oh and mippa sang her rendition of A Whole New World in Japanese.  That was awesome.  I really like the Japanese version.

I was having lots of fun but with all the ROCK songs, I ended up losing my voice at the 3rd hour.  I guess it didn't help that I' still getting over a cold.  I knew my voice was getting weaker but then all of sudden I totally loss it.  I would try to speak but not a single sound would come out.  It was kinda scary...I had to ask the reception for some hot water to get a little back for the 4th hour.  Luckily, it began coming back to me toward the end but I had to take a long rest from singing.  I wonder if my voice will be ok, tom.  I wouldn't mind using it as an excuse not to teach tom.:p

After karoke we went out for some yum yum yummy meat!  All you can eat SUKIYAKI!! (<--oooh, why did noone sing that at karaoke? ' o '   )  It was a great chance to bond!   We actually have quite a few things in common so it'll be great to hang out again.  ^o^/

Ok, I better get to bed.  I bet I'll be late for work again! >.<

You would love Melissa's voice. She sings just as well as T.!! She did a wonderful rendition of Reira's Endless Story.

You're going to Tenimyu on Fri., right? I guess we can plan Sat. there. Are you going to Jump Festa? I'll be there most of the day. As for the drama cds, i have the first vol. so I need vol. 2-4!! Also Mikoto's single if you have it.:p BTW, I have an extra Gundam Seed Destiny poster from the latest Animage. If you want, you can have it. I think I have some other GSD stuff lying around looking for a home. If you're interested do let me know.^^; I'm trying to clean up before I head to the States.
