Here's my dinner for today

After work, I headed to Seicomart to buy some stuff. After that, the other Rumoi City ALTs and I met at Mo's Burger to hang out and plan what to do. 

A few more days of continuous snow and my place would surely be buried.

My COOP Card finally arrived.

When I arrived home, there was a note from the Post Office informing me that I need to pick up the package at the post office. It was a surprise package from Mr. Toshi and his family. I got home a little before 8:30PM. It was another fun bonding for us.

It's another very cold morning here in Rumoi City

It's cold and windy

That afternoon, I headed to Joshua's place for our usual Rumoi ALT holiday bonding. I brought drinks while Kiaya baked some chocolate revel bars. Joshua, on the other hand, made curry.

Revel bar for the win!

Now Showing: Rocky Horror Picture Show

While eating, we watched the Rocky Horror Picture Show because the two Canadians felt that I have missed part of my life when I told them that I haven't seen the film yet. I have to admit that it was an interesting film but it is not something that I'd put on my list of favorite films.

Walking home on a cold night in Rumoi

After the film, we bade goodbye to each other as we still have to work the next day. I got home a little before 10PM. I wanted to take a quick dip but it was too cold so I just slept it off.
