That Wedding in Kagoshima

*Throwback Thursday: I'm slowly (very slowly) going to be bringing my old posts to this blog.


The special day is finally here!
My BFF's wedding!

S was so beautiful.

Everyone saw how she shined
especially her husband. Aw.


The wedding reception was fabulous, too!


S had asked me to do the speech at the reception.

Ended up taking over a month
writing it, fixing it, and practicing it.

Somehow I got through it.

My speech instructor in college used to always tell me
"Speak slowly, don't cry."

Well, I tried to speak slowly
but couldn't help crying here and there.

I mean, it was my best friend
and this was my first ever wedding speech!
(Cut me some slack here...haha)

But I made S cry, too, so it wasn't just me ;)


Happiest of marriages to this amazing couple!

That Weekend at the Tennis Tournament


Back at the tournament again this year!

I always think it's going to be my last year
but then they invite me and I can't seem to say no.

I really love my peeps.


My sister Y was here again this year, too.
So much fun seeing old friends back here every year.


This was the finals match.
A beautiful Sunday afternoon.

A full house always gets us all pumped up.


The final match was between
Nadal and Murray.

Somewhere along the way
I started rooting for the Spaniard.

Maybe because he smells so good even
right after finishing his match?

But he lost 36 62 60.


Aw.
Hope he comes again next year.

And I really hope our team
can get together again net year, too!

That Night at Oedo Onsen in Odaiba


What do you do when a tennis match ends
earlier than you expected?

Go to Oedo Onsen!


They have different types of baths
and we got to walk around in our yukatas.

Super touristy but a great way to relax!
