I watched this film on 11-25-2012 in Los Angeles. It talked about power of INORI, prayer. Meditation has the same power as prayer, too. Prayer and meditation change our brain waves, and transmit vibrations. It will calm down people around us, make the crime rate lower by 22 percent, make peace, and make our immunization up, so it has great healing effect on sickness. When 8366 people (1% power of 1%) pray, the whole Earth will be peaceful. It was interesting with detailed data and samples.

先日、「INAKA」でランチしました。"The Grove"モール側にあり、創業37年の老舗マクロビオティックと和食のレストランです。 (田舎盛り合わせ / INAKA PLate $14 ↓) "INAKA Restaurant, LA": We had a lunch there the other day. It's located near "The Grove" mall in Los Angeles. It's a Macrobiotic and Japanese restaurant for 37 years (since 1976). They serve Seafood, Fish Soup, Nabeyaki Soba or Udon noodles, and Ozoni Soup, too.
ABOUT INAKA Owner and Chef, Jay Abe, has been serving Macrobiotic food at INAKA for over 30 years at the same location. Although, the neighborhood has experienced changes, the philosophy at INAKA has not. We serve simple Japanese food naturally prepared using traditional methods, with your health in mind. Each plate is prepared individually, with care taken from beginning to end. The ingredients that go into each meal at INAKA are local, organic and/or natural whenever available.
Understand that good food made just for you takes time to prepare. Use your time with us to unwind from the pressures of day to day city life and restore your body, mind, and spirit. Remember, 'INAKA' means 'countryside' in Japanese.
自然醸造醤油/ごま塩 Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce/Sesame Seed & Salt マクロビオティックは1年以上かけて自然醸造された無農薬有機栽培大豆使用の醤油、自家製ごま塩を調味料として使います。塩は海の塩です。各テーブルに置かれてました。
Macrobiotics recommend using Soy Sauce naturally brewed over a year with organic Soy Beans and home-made Sesame Seed & Salt for seasoning. Salt is Sea Salt. These were placed on each table.
くき茶 / Kuki Cha $3 with Free Refill (お替り付き） マクロビオティックはカフェインを控えるため、3年以上熟成させた番茶のくき茶を飲むことが多いです。 お茶は葉の部分にカフェインが多く、くきの部分は少ないそう。
Macrobiotics teaches to refrain caffeine, so practitioners drink Kuki cha (stem tea) that are naturally aged for over 3 years. Caffeine concentrates on leaves rather than stems of teas.
田舎どんぶり/INAKA Bowl $12 or $14 with Soup or Salad 冒頭の’田舎盛り合わせ’と同じ食材が量少なめに盛りあわされています。玄米ご飯、ヒジキ、豆腐白和え、ゴボウ、ブロッコリー、小豆、カボチャ、レンコン、ケール、大根、キャベツ。
It's a smaller serving of the same varieties as "INAKA Plate", the top photo. It has Brown Rice, Hijiki Sea Vegetable, Tofu Salad, Gobo Root (Burdock), Broccoli, Red Beans, Lotus Roots, Kabocha Squash, Kale, Daikon Radish, and Cabbage.
Many American customers frequent here. There are many health conscious people in California.
少し前レドンドビーチの『Kincaid's』で晩餐。食べないようにしていた牛肉を７年ぶりに食べました。ここはステーキ、シーフード、パスタのお店。海の上にあり眺めが絶景。窓側は予約席で内側の席がウオークイン用です。 (Surf & Turf - New York Steak and Lobster $28 ↓) Kincaid's Restaurant@Redondo: We went there for "Surf & Turf" special dinner for a while ago. I had Beef steak for the first time in 7 years. It's a restaurant on the sea by Redondo Beach pier, offering Steaks, Seafood, and Pasta,etc. Window side tables are for reservation, and several tables near the kitchen are for walk-in customers.

ナッツ・パン/Nuts Bread これは無料で出されます。
These are served free.
The sunset glow through the windows are so beautiful.
This is sunset glow of Redondo Beach, outside of the restaurant.
今日あやうく、海外版オレオレ詐欺にひっかかり、現金$500をフィリピンに送金するところでした。 'Stranded Traveler' Scam: I almost fell victim to this scam today. I was trying to send $500 cash to Philippines through Western Union.
今朝、次のEメールが友人のEメールアカントから来ました： This morning I received the following email from a friend: ------------------------------------------------------------------ Hello, I'm writing this with great grievance . I'm presently in Manila Philippines.with my Family for a short vacation and we're stuck..And really it was unannounced.We were attacked by four armed robbers on our way back to the hotel where we lodged.we were robbed and completely embarrassed.
All our cash,credit cards and cellphone were stolen. We've reported the incident to the embassy and the Police but to my dismay they seem not bothered...their response was just too casual.Our flight leaves in few hours but We've got to settle our bills before We're allowed to leave....Now am freaked out....Please I need you to me loan some money,I promise to refund you as soon as I'm back home. All i need is $1,850 .. Please Let me know what you can do? Write me back so I can tell you how to get it to me.. ---------------------------------------------------------------- 和訳： こんにちは。私はこれを悔やみながら書いています。現在私はフィリピンのマニラに家族と小旅行に来ていて、身動きできなくなりました。4人の武装した強盗にホテルへ戻る途中に襲われ、辱めを受けました。
I tried to send $500 to this friend in Philippines through Western Union's website. You can send money in minutes by credit cards (Visa, MC, Discover). But the credit card payment was denied on the website. I called the Credit Card company, and the agent said "OK to charge". But still it was denied at the WU website. I went to my bank, got $500 cash, and drove to a Western Union agent near-by.
At the last minute, I thought, "What if this was a scam?"
I called our mutual friend M and asked her about it. She replied, "I received the same Email posing another friend before. I believe this is a scam. Her email account must have been hacked and used."
友人の身元確認の質問を１つメールすると、怒ったかんじの返信が来ました。肝心の質問には答えません。 I emailed one question to identify the friend. The reply came as below: ------------------------------------------------------------ OMG What a million questions!!! why you asking me this as at moment ?? Is this just because i asked you of help.. why have you decided to treat me like this, i want you to know that we're meant to help each other. I know this is unusual but you are the only person i could reach at this point and I'm doing everything i can so i can work my way out of here peacefully but there is nothing really working out, most important is that my flight leaves in hours from now and I really need your help. If i wasn't the one i won't have ask you to send the money to my name as we both know i will need some kinda verification before i can pick up the money. Thank God i still have my passport with me for verification. ------------------------------------------------------------
12月30日サンディエゴ動物園のパンダ再訪。去年7月29日に生まれた赤ちゃんパンダの公開を期待して。その赤ちゃんパンダ「シャオリュー」は今日、1月10日から午前9時半～11時半に公開されています。 （生後3歳5ヶ月のユンザ/ Yun Zi, 3 year and 5 months old ↓ ) "Pandas at San Diego Zoo": I re-visited San Diego Zoo on Dec. 30, 2012 with hopes to see a new born baby panda, born on July 29, 2012. I could not see the baby panda, Xiao Liwu in person. He finally debuted for public viewing from today, Jan. 10, 2013 between 9:30 am and 11:30 am daily.
Yun Zi grew up so big! Now he is bigger than his father, Gao Gao.
It takes 2 and a half hours by driving free ways one way from my house in South Bay area. I went to pick up a friend in Santa Monica, so it took 6 hours both ways.
ユンザ /Yun Zi 前列は立ち止まれないので、後の列に行きなおし、ねばって何枚も写真撮影しました。
ユンザ /Yun Zi There is no stopping on the front row. I moved to the back row and stayed there and took several photos.
Yun Zi got really big....! He is this big at 3 and a half years old...
ユンザ / Yun Zi サンディエゴ動物園で生まれたパンダは3歳を過ぎたら、中国四川省のパンダリサーチセンターに送り返すことになってるので、ユンザもあと1年以内に旅立つでしょう。。。
Panda cubs born at San Deigo Zoo are sent back to Panda Research Center in Sichuan province, China after passing 3 years old according to the panda loan program. I believe Yun Zi will be traveling to China within one year.....
After seeing Pandas, we went to see two Pola Bears in north side and Koalas in a temporary housing in the North. We got on the double-Decker bus and toured around the zoo. We returned to my car little before 4 pm. It started to rain. It rained heavily for 30 minutes.
Then, we saw double-rainbows on our right front side ~!
マクロビ合宿2日目は、クリスマスイブ。シェフ・エリックさん特性のマクロビ風クリスマスディナーをいただきました。 "Christmas Eve Dinner@North Fork": The second day at North Fork retreat was Christmas Eve. We enjoyed Macrobiotic Christmas dinner prepared by chef Eric.
It was sunny on Dec. 24, 2012. It rained the day before, so there were plenty of powder snow at the ski grounds. Eric went to skiing with earnest from early morning and prepared the Christmas dinner after his return in the late afternoon.
We drove to the top of the mountain where we can see the dam in North Fork. We relaxed there for 1 hour and meditated.
クリスマス頃ヨセミテ近郊の「Mugen Retreat」にてマクロビオティック合宿しました。ロサンゼルスから高速を北へ飛ばして4時間から4時間半。ベニスの"Seed Kitchen"に寄って、「ホリデー丼」をテイクアウト。 (Holiday Bowl @ Seed Kitchen ↓ ) "Vegan Dinner, Mugen Retreat 1": I spent my Christmas holiday at "Mugen Retreat" in North Fork near Yosemite, CA. It's about 4 to 4.5 hours drive to North from Los Angeles. We got took out "Holiday Bowl" from "Seed Kitchen" in Venice on the way. The Holiday Bowl is only available at "Seed Kitchen" from November to December 28th every year. It has Kabocha Squash, Sweet Potato, Seitan, Kale, and Cranberry Sauce on top of Organic Brown Rice.
Eric and Sanae, a married couple who owns "Seed Kichen" purchased a six acre property with in North Fork, near Yosemite eight years ago. There are three old and abandoned buildings, a horse stable, and a newly remodeled 3 Bedroom lodge house, small rivers, bridges, and mountains.

「ムゲン」リトリート Mugen Retreat 小川 / Small River 雨や雪が降ったあとは、水が集まり、小川ができます。落ち葉がたまり、日光を浴びてきれいでした。
Small rivers are naturally formed after rain and snow. Fallen leaves are accumulated. It was so beautiful with sunlight.
Here are Macrobiotic dinner the chef Eric made for us on Dec. 23, 2012. It was a casual dinner at the kitchen. All ingredients are vegetable. From Left, Cranberry Sauce, Seitan Pâté (foie gras flavor), Pickled Olive, Mushroom Pâté, and Crackers.
エリックさんと草千さん Eric and Sanae 前菜を食べながら、だんらんの一時。これらの前菜は全て、エリックさんの手作り。
We chatted and relaxed while having appetizers. Eric home-made all of these Appetizers.
緑の野菜（青梗菜） Green Vegetable (Bok Choy) オーガニック無農薬チンゲンサイの緑色の部分のみ使用した贅沢な野菜料理。
Only the green portion of Organic Bok Choy were used.
Sanae and Eric have six Golden Retriever dogs and a cat. They take all dogs and the cat to North Fork all the time. Three of them are young, one and a half to two and a half years old, and they get excited during our dinner. We asked them to wait outside the dining room, and they kept staring at us through the door glass.
I made the traditional Japanese New Year dishes just little bit this year. I cooked them from 6 pm to 8 pm on Dec.31, 2012. I did not make Black Beans, Konnyaku Yam Cake, Dried Kouya Tofu, Yellow Tail Teriyaki, etc.
My office got Dec 31 (Mon) and Jan. 1 (Tue) off and started to work from Jan. 2nd.
今年のお節は少なめ。カンタロープメロンはJさんの差し入れ。 I made little bit of Osechi New Year dishes. Friend J brought Cantaloupe Melon.
He got bigger than his father, Gao Gao. His younger brother was born in August 2012. We wanted to see the baby panda in person, but the public viewing was not available, yet. Maybe the baby panda will be placed for public viewing at end of this month !?
