Masami's birthday

Since Masami was in California for her birthday, we had a late birthday celebration for Masami. We went to the Tucano, the Brazilian restaurant. At Tucanos, they have salad bars. But more importantly, they bring meat to your table. Meat that have been cooked just few seconds ago. They bring BBQs, steaks, ribs, turkey, etc. If you ever get a chance to go to Tucanos, you better wear loose pants.

Tucano's also offer birthday discounts. If you visit during your birthday month, then the meal is 2 for 1. There is no better deals than this.

So my wife and I went there but I went with a little suprise; a wedding photo book. Too see the full photo album, visit "Endless Journey" section of this website, or click here. We've always wanted to have a photo book for our wedding. While Masami was in California, I talked with my friend who is in the photography business. He said to try out MyPublisher.com.

This site is amazing. They let your design your book from scratch to the end. And the only cost in the printing and the shipping cost. It's definately worth it.

Anyway, this was my suprise to my birthday. It was been 6 months since we got married. we pray that our relationship will last throughout the eternities.

New Year 2008

Masami and I visited San Jose for the Christmas and the New Year for '08-'09. To see the photo albums, go to "Endless Journey" section of the website, or click here. We invited missionaries for the Christmas dinner. One missionary was from Virginia and one was from Haiti. Great and fun missionaries.

For the New Year, we were invited to Aki's parents (my brother-in-law's parents) house. Aki's father works at the Benihana so we had nice sushi for the New Year meal! Awesome. Couple of days after the New Year, we took a short trip to San Francisco. It was my first time and we only had 4 hours to enjoy. We went to pier, golden bridge and the steep hills at downtown.

My stayed in California longer than I did because she hoped to get over her morning sickness before she returned to Provo. We would separated for 3 weeks. Plus, she would have her sister to help her.

Ever since Masami and I started dating, there have been many occasions where we had to be apart from each other for a long time; each time at least a months. The longest was 6 months. But we continue to build even stronger relationships despite difficult times. We are grateful for many families and friends who support us.
