Weekend Shopping

On Saturday, my darling and I finally decided on getting home electric appliances!!! Before we leave home, we called the electronics retail stores to compare prices. In Japan, you can negotiate the price at any major electronics retail store if you can prove that the other store has lower price (even a penny!).

Of course, we bought HITACHI Frost Recycling Vacuum Compartment Refrigerator on our wish list! We went for 475L because it was the thinnest with great capacity ;)

As for the washing machine, we bought Sanyo's AQUA AWD-TQ900(W)! The attracting unique function is ozone washing called "Air wash". You can clean your clothes without water! Oxygen in the air is converted to ozone, using an ozone creation device, and is sprayed on clothing inside the machine. Ozone has a strong oxidation action, which either destroys or disassembles the cell walls of bacteria. This allows for eliminating bacteria, odors, and dirt (organic matter). With this machine, you can wash delicate clothing, business suit, stuffed animals, and shoes!!! Of course it has a normal washing cycle that uses water as well.

Then for air-conditioning and heating equipment, we went for Panasonic with nanoe (air purifier which at the same time hydrates your skin)! For the living room, we chose one with additional self-clean function that cleans the filter automatically!

We still haven't decided on the room lights, so maybe this weekend...

Anyways, after shopping, it was already after 10PM!!! We tried to order healthy foods! Matcha-hi (shochu-based beverage) and collagen salad with salmon and ikura for a starter ;)

I am eating natto because I heard eating natto before bedtime is good for the skin! hehe

No wonder we run out of savings... but why not enjoy our lives!!!

  1. Ochi,

    Wow,you really started to buy a lot!! But where you put your new electrical thingy?I mean you place them at your new place or your current place?Because your new place still under renovation..

    Well,just curious..

  2. Good question, jose!

    We booked the day for the delivery and the setup after the removal ;)

    We just realized we don't have enough time left to go shopping, so we bought them now. Time flies!!!

  3. Oh wow you bought so much stuff!!! Hahaha it's okay to use your savings because you work hard and you are buying things you need, not just toys right? lol

    Over here in my city we can also negotiate as well! But the companies are VERY picky and there are lots of restrictions as well =( It's almost impossible to negotiate sometimes! OMG Im so envious of your washing machine! In my future "dream" home I want one that can wash and dry in the same machine! Also stores open so late in Japan, it must be nice! Over here most stores are closed by 6 and only some specific stores are open later than that!

  4. Hi Suki!

    One time in our lives, I guess. Not a toy, but might be too extra for the functions X(

    Yes! There are many restaurants in Japan that open until midnight or later!!! I thank to them but we seldom hang out late. hehe
