It's a special day for our family as it is my dad's birthday. Happy birthday Papa!

Congratulations BBM! Praying for peace and prosperity under your administration

As for the Philippine news... The Philippine presidential election results are out and it was an overwhelming win for Ferdinand "Bong Bong" Marcos. He will be the 17th President of the Philippines after his inauguration on June 30. I do hope that he continues the projects of President Duterte and improves on the things that he fell short on. May there be unity under his presidency.

Moekko Free Ticket 14th Season

That afternoon after work, my family and I went out for a walk. We headed to Docomo to inquire about the mobile data plan for my wife. 

Dinner at Sukiya Rumoi

I ordered gyudon and miso soup with Teshio clams

From there, we went to Sukiya for dinner. It was heartwarming when an elderly couple talked to us when they heard us speaking in a foreign language. The obachan asked us where we were from and upon hearing that we are from the Philippines, she said that we are always welcome in Japan. Her husband also said Marcos is number one (probably referring to his win in the Philippine presidential election). 

Grocery at COOP

Half-price produce at COOP

After dinner, we walked back home to wrap up the day but did a quick stop at Coop to buy some bread. We were amazed to discover that they were all half-priced the same goes for cooked food and sushi. That only meant that the quick stop became full-on grocery shopping.
