July 11, 1944 (Tuesday)

Went with Pepito A. Santos to Ginza to shop at Mikimoto’s pearl shop where we stayed nearly two hours breaking our heads trying to pick from among the beautiful rings and jewelry on display. I bought two pearl rings (Y63 and Y33) and another with small jade stones (Y99) for Nene Vargas who asked me to pick out one for him intended for his g.f. Pepito bought rings for his sisters and g.f. I hope I can send these things home through Counsellor Lavides who is leaving soon.
