It came with Honda Spicy Sauce. You can choose "Cut" or "Hand-Roll", and we asked for "Cut" (8 pcs). Arranging the Roll on the plate is beautiful, too.
The chef cut up and cleaned a whole fish of Spanish Mackerel in front of me and got 2 filet and made it into Nigiri Sushi. 2 pieces came with 1 order. We can rarely find fresh Spanish Mackerel in Markets in LA. It's been a while since I had fresh Spanish Mackerel Sushi. It was garnished with Ponzu Sauce, Momiji radish, and chopped Green Onion. It was delicious.

バシャールのセッションが11月11日から13日までロス北部スタジオ・シティーで開催。初日11日に参加しました。 "2012 Gateway Event with Bashar" was held in Studio City, a suburb of Los Angeles, on Nov. 11, 12, and 13, 2011. I attended the first day, 11-11-2011.
That day was "11-11-11" and also 8 month anniversary from 3-11 Eastern Japan Earthquake and Tsunami. I was pulled by the power of "11-11-11", and attended Bashar's live session for the first time.
The theater room of that hotel had 170 seats. There were 190 people, 20 people had no seats. They stood along the walls on the right and left side of the theater. The doors opened at 7 pm. It was supposed to start at 7:30 pm, but delayed 20 minutes due to the over-booking.
They played a short video clip, and then, Darryl Anka, a medium of Bashar appeared. After a brief meditation and deep breathing, Bashar entered in the body of Darryl.
No photography, video-taping, and recording were allowed during the session. CD's and DVD's of the sessions will be available in December 2011. They were taking orders.
Bashar talks very fast with loud emphasizing tone. There is no soft tone in between, so my brain got tired understanding what Bashar's was talking sometimes. Bashar mentioned his planet has a different orbit compared to Earth. But if he converts it to the Earth orbit, his birthday is 11-11. Also one of his middle names is "illi", represents "11-11". "11-11-11" is the gateway to year 2012. It has power to amplify the ascension.
The 11th book of your Bible, ("Books of Kings",) 11th chapter, 11th paragraph, 11th line talks about "transfer of power from the kings to the people". "Kings are falling, people are rising." That is what happening on this planet now.
It's not negative. It's the idea of urging in a loving way. Time to give up the notion of it's not enough for everyone. Not all of you need the same things.
You need to awaken to the vibration you prefer. Be yourself. It's not the shift. Parallel world doesn't have any change within. Each frame has no motion. You only change yourself.
11-11-11 vibration. Expressing notion of self-expression, truth, and what you believe. Time to shift the power from the few to many. You create the big picture.
11-11-11 gateway opens up. You can flow exposing. If you use that 11-11-11 energy, you will amplify and be very creative. Crossing (ascension) means leading edge and catching up to what it should have been.
After the crossing (ascension), there will be slightly more positive energy than before. Allow yourself to be open to opportunities, to relax your being of yourself. Feel the experience within you.
There was a meditation exercise imagining to write "11" on a piece of paper and placing it in front of a mirror, so you will see "11-11" looking at the paper and the reflection on the mirror. It was complicated, so I will not write it here.
Bashar said, "We call you, the people on Earth as 'Masters of Limitation'. You have so many things that you have to do or you are not supposed to do." You are not yourself in the situations.
During the Q&A session: Question: One lady asked how to overcome the death of the loved ones. Bashar answered, "Death is just walking from one room to another. We can constantly communicate with them. Life continues as if there is no after life. There is nothing to be sorrow."
Another lady asked, "I have trouble memorizing people's names. I meet people, but I cannot remember. Is there any solution to this?"
Bashar answered, "On our planet we don't have to memorize anything. We can get the information when we need it, not before and not after. I believe your planet will come up with 'Quantum computer' soon." (He explained more in details.)
Another asked about 3-11-11 Big Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan.
Bashar answered, "3-11-11 is not technologically engineered."
Questioners during the Q & A sessions are randomly drawn by Darryl Anka. My friend, Kurumi" was chosen as the 6th person to ask questions.
Question: K "About 3-11 disaster, why was it have to be Japan?"
Answer: B "It is due to consciousness of everyone. Collective consciousness of Japan chose to be an example for the world to show the consequences of what will happen with the choices they make (nuclear power). Nuclear power plant accidents had to occur in Japan as the only nation who experienced the atomic bombing. That's why Japan is experiencing how it should choose with nuclear power after the accident. There are many people who will create the ideas of catastrophic tragedies for themselves. But it will be alright. Many people will learn from it in a positive way."
Question K :"Is it going to get worse if people's consciousness did not change?"
Answer B: "It's not a bad thing. It's a change. It's not like nobody making change. Those who are not willing to change to the minds of more harmonious way, the negativeness will be amplified. But those who are willing to change to more harmonious ways, they can create harmonious ways. Remember, there is another Earth represents the choices you make and you prefer. Take actions for the earth you prefer to live."
Question K : "How can they change? So can individual's energy can affect others, right?"
Answer B: "No, they don't. It's only by agreement. There are no victims here. Thinking as victims only amplify being victims. You are all powerful being making choices for yourself. Share ideas with others. Take the actions to be more harmonious to the biological earth being. If they choose to be aligned to your vibrations, they will. Do things that are exciting to you in positive way."
"Many people that experienced nuclear radiation damage are the people who died with bombs in the World War II in Japan in past lives. They chose to show 'is this what we prefer? There are natural ways of energy.' "
Bashar did not mention but my intuition told me there are many souls who died in Hiroshima or Nagasaki atomic bomb attacks in their past lives and chose to reincarnate and die with Nuclear power radiation in the present lives. Their souls are supreme filled with unconditional love. I was overwhelmed with gratitude to them.
The session ended around 10:30 pm. It was 11 pm after buying the crystal and ordering DVD's. Bashar talks very fast, so I could take notes just a little bit. I want to watch the DVDs over and over after being shipped out in Dec. 2011.

10月2日、リトル東京「大黒屋」のラーメン初挑戦しました。いつも1時間以上の行列を見てあきらめてたのですが、それほど並んでなかったので。それでも席に着くのに44分待ちました。 "Daikokuya Ramen"@LA: I tried it for the first time on Oct. 2, 2011. It's on 2nd Street in Little Tokyo. lots of people are waiting in line for more than one hour all the time, so I did not try there, before. This time not many people were waiting in line, so we got in the line. Well, we waited 44 minutes to be seated.

Kichi-Men (Lucky Noodle): It's spicy hot and sour Noodle. Hiyachi Chuka: Cold Noodle Chinese Style
It's Tonkotsu (Pork Bone) and Soy Sauce Base Soup Ramen Noodle. It's so big in volume. It's more than twice the regular Ramen Noodle at some other Ramen shops. I ordered as a combination with Fried Rice at $11.50.
焼き飯/ Fried Rice とっても柔らかい焼き豚、卵などが入ってました。
It had very soft BBQ Pork, Eggs, etc.
大黒ラーメンと焼き飯 Daikoku Ramen with Fried Rice ラーメン（普通サイズ）と焼き飯(半分サイズ）を並べるとこんな感じです。 ラーメンの量がめちゃくちゃ多いので、焼き飯はほとんど食べずにお持ち帰りにしました。
It looks like this when Ramen (Regular size) and Fried Rice (Half size) are placed together. The Ramen had a big volume, so we could not eat Fried Rice and took it home.
店内にはボンカレー、オロナミンC、金鳥などレトロな看板が並びます。 They display old Japanese commercial Advertising boards in the restaurant.
We had Ramen at "Daikokuya Costa Mesa" location inside Marukai market on Oct.9, 2011. The pricing was little less compared to Little Tokyo location. Also it's great that there is no line of people here.
コロラド滞在2日目23日は、ロッキー山脈国立公園を訪問。滞在先のフォートコリンズからハイウエイを1時間半ほど南西に向かった所です。その側にある「ネパール・カフェ」でカレー食べました。 "Nepal's Cafe", Estates Park, CO: We wanted to visited "Rocky Mountain National Park" on the second day of our visit to Colorado on Oct. 23, 2011. It was about 90 minute drive to South West from Fort Collins, where we stayed. We had a buffet Lunch at "Nepal's Cafe" in the Estes Park there.
ハイウエイ沿いに見える景色と紅葉が素晴らしかったです。 Fall foliage and scenery were marvelous along the highways.
We kept driving toward the summit and the entrance to "Rocky Mountain National Park".
According to Wikipedia: Colorado is the only U.S. state that lies entirely above 1,000 meters (3,281 ft) elevation. The summit of Mount Elbert at 14,440 feet (4,401 m) in elevation in Lake County is the highest point of Colorado and the Rocky Mountains.
We arrived at the entrance to "Rocky Mountain National Park", but the main path in the national park was closed due to snow. If you drive though the path, you will see beautiful scenery of snow covered Rocky Mountains with Fall foliage. We decided to wall around the Estates Park and have lunch there.
