From Thursday to Sunday, Satoshi was away on his company trip to Bangkok.
Here's what I did while he was away...
Thursday, I had my annual physcial check-up. It feels like I just had one, but I looked at my archives and it is about a year.
This year, I went to another hospital and my appointment was at 3 in the afternoon.
Can you imagine fasting until then?! At least I was able to eat breakfast, but no water (or food) until 3...
I had the barium test again.
This year, the doctor was really old with a jet black pompadour hairstyle (the Japanese call this type of hairstyle a "rezent", dunno why).
While I was on the machine for the barium test, he would bark out orders over a mic which I couldn't understand, it reminded me of that teacher on "Charlie Brown". "waa waa waa".
At one point, I looked at him through the window and said "what?!" in English...then the assistant came in (snickered a bit) and positioned me the way the doctor wanted.
Throughout the test, you could hear the doctor sighing, because I wasn't doing exactly what he wanted me to.
There was even this part of the machine that looked like a fist that he would "jab" into my stomach, well, he even "jabbed" my ribs with it. I'm sure he enjoyed doing that...
No bedside manner whatsoever.
It'll be a couple of weeks before I find out my results, but hopefully everything will turn out okay.
Linner (Lunch & dinner) was pizza and beer (and ice cream) that night.
Friday, I went to catch the early show.
A Japanese romance comedy shot in Paris.
The story itself was so-so, but I enjoyed seeing different areas of Paris.
Saturday, I made a batch of ginger syrup. This time I used agave instead of honey. Haven't tried it yet, but it looks good.
Sunday, I went walking and came across this R2D2-ish building.
The past couple of days have been kinda warm 24C (75F).
What have you been up to?
