My first full weekend here this summer. YAY!!! HOT!!! PEOPLE!!! SALE!!!  SHAVED ICE!!!  I decided to take a break from cooking since normally on the weekends we eat out.  Today, I spent the day time in Tokyo walking around.  By the time my mom and I got to Tokyo it was lunch time, so we headed down to the restaurant floor in oIoI (Marui)  It is one of the newest department stores in Yurakucho.  Anyways, it was crowded and as I was walking around the floor checking out restaurants, I started to crave for Vietnamese because 1. I miss Pho, 2. I haven't had delicious and tasty Pho in a while, and 3. There was a long line only at that restaurant.  We waited for about 5 min, when my mom said it the pictures on the menu looked salty; so we left and walked around and around while I was getting more and more hungry and annoyed.  It was so very hot and crowed that you had to be there to understand my feeling.  So, after awhile, my mom said, AH! I know where to go!  We walked outside of the department store and went to the restaurant across from it because she said they had good soba.  When we got there, we found out that it was only Japanese deserts.  ARE YOU KIDDING ME????  So, we wondered around again until my mom said again, AH! I know where to go!  We walked a few blocks to another department stored called Sebu.  She said she knew a good healthy Japanese restaurant.  I told her that she better be right this time and that she should ask someone at the information desk, but she was confident that it was on the 6th floor of this department store.  She was correct. YAY!!  We went to the restaurant and thankfully there was not many people and no line.  :) 
I have eaten at this restaurant before.  Although there have only few choices for lunch, they have good variety of deserts.  I think they are famous for their green tea because majority of their deserts were green tea.  For example, green tea shaved ice, green tea roll cake, and green tea ice cream.  My choices were either green tea soba (aka Cha soba), salmon with ochazuke, or the lunch plate.  Since I can get the soba anywhere and the salmon looked salty, my mom and I got the lunch plate.  It was very healthy and good.  Since we wanted green tea shaved ice for desert, we were about to order it when the server said to us "It is very big."  It sounded like are you sure you want it?  Don't you think the lunch plate is enough?  We were both like WHAT!! How RUDE!!!  Of course, we didn't want it after that, so we left without desert. :(  
I liked majority of the food included in the lunch plate except for the squid and mozuku.  Mozuku is a vegetable from the sea.  Basically, it's like real think brown noodles dipped in vinegar sauce.  You are supposed to just slur It because it is very sour.  Not my favorite :/  However, it is very good for your diet and health.  Besides that it was ALL GOOD!! YUM!!!! 

Around 5ish I met up with my LONG friend that I met during high school.  It has been a year since I last saw her.  After following her to run her errands, we went to by food before going to her house.  Since it seemed like everyone else already ate dinner, fast food was my only choice.  I try to avoid fast food as much as I can because it is unhealthy and there are so many other types of food that are more worth eating than fast food.  Unfortunately, my choices for dinner tonight were convenient store, McDonald, or Mos Burger.  I chose Mos Burger.  For those who do not know what Mos Burger is, it is a healthier version of McDonald.  Well, that is my opinion.  Nonetheless, I got chicken burger with fries and ice tea.  HA! Smallest burger I ever seen. LOL!!!  Anyways, after that, we went to the convenient store to get drinks and snacks for the game.  We got beer for the guys and grapefruit drinks like Mikes Hard Lemonade for us girls.  When we got to my friends house, we opened everything party style to get the mood going to watch the game.  
Did I mention that everyone wasn't hungry because they already ate dinner?  Well guess what happened.  When I was eating my burger, I decided to throw away the top piece of the bread.  I tend to do that when I eat any type of sandwiches or burgers because that way I save on a few calories and I am more of a noodles fan than bread.  Anyways when I was about to throw it out, everyone was like WHAT ARE YOU DOING?  I explained it to them that I didn't want it and one of my guy friend said, "OMG, I will eat it!!"  LOL!! So you are hungry.. AHHAHAHAH!!  Until the game finished we all drank and munched on snacks.  Too bad Japan lost, but Good job Japan!!! It was a tough game playing against Netherlands.
