Apple Support Chat

My iPhone suddenly got broken.

The alarm was silent and thanks to Choco, he woke me up because he wanted to go for a walk.

Though Choco did a good deed, I had to cut his walk to get ready for work.

He looked very disappointed.

I compensated by taking him extra long walk at night.

Well, there was something wrong with a speaker.

My iPhone didn’t play music but making noise when I press the side button.

I thought Apple Support on call is only available after 10 am; then I received a message that Apple Support Chat is available while browsing for the contact number.

I thought I would talk with AI, but the conversation was smooth.

(Later, I found that it was not AI but a human.)

I started chatting.

It concluded I am required to go to Apple Store to get it check-up.

I even made a reservation at Genius Bar, Apple Store Ginza at 11:50 am via chat.

My boss was scheduled to leave office to attend a meeting in Yokohama at 11 am and I could use my lunch hour.

It was perfect.

Based on our chat history, it didn’t take much time to diagnosis my iPhone.

The body/hardware and software didn’t have any problem but we could still hear noise.

With further checking, the technician identified the problem around the SIM card.

I had to change the body and I received a used new iPhone on the spot.

It took hours to recover my setting, but to diagnosis and to receive a replace phone was fast.

Apple Support Chat is not bad.

I could quietly chat and to make a reservation at Genius Bar quietly while working. hahaha

Scale for FiNC

I bought a scale designed for FiNC at FiNC Mall.

This scale would be connected to FiNC app via Bluetooth to record more than ten (10) elements such as weight, BMI, fat, body age, etc.

It saves me from typing manually and I can obtain more information about my body.

Choco, it’s not for you. hahaha

Tokyo Midtown Roppongi Loves Summer 2019 (Suntory)

Suntory is sponsoring events at Tokyo Midtown Roppongi under the theme of Loves Summer.

My niece and I enjoyed cooling down at the stream.

The roof changes in various colours such as blue, green, pink, white, etc.

Choco waited for us patiently. Good Boy!

The park turns into a nice Japanese Style Opened Air Restaurant: Roku Midpark Lounge.

We can purchase drinks and food to dine here.

Soon I will try their Japanese craft gin – Roku.

There is a light and mist digital art show at the garden of the Tokyo Midtown Roppongi.

I watched it with Choco and Choco seems to enjoy it, too. hahaha

Our evening walk would be fun.

Tokyo Midtown Summer Loves 2019 (Stamp Rally)

My niece came over to spend long weekend with me.

We participated few programmes at Tokyo Midtown Roppongi under the theme of Tokyo Midtown Summer Loves 2019.

We visited an exhibition introducing beauty of creature and arts with these beauty at 21_21 Design Sight.

We found a stamp rally table so we decided to participate in collecting six stamps of insects to gat a glittering sticker sheet at Tokyo Midtown Roppongi.

We visited six places to collect six stamps.

Unfortunately, a sticker sheet is for children only and I couldn’t get one.

My niece happily put them on her favorite Precure (the Pretty Cure).

Learning Sustainable Value Chain (8 – 10 July 2019)

I attended the forum to learn about Sustainable Value Chain.

It was educational and programme was interesting.

I learned about value chain from different perspectives: scholar, buyer/eCommerce platform operator and retailer.

As part of the programme, I visited Nissan’s Yokohama Plant: the founded place and the first plant.

I also visited Ota City Industrial Plaza.

The city provides industrial apartment for SMEs and entrepreneurs.

I enjoyed various food during the three day programme.

The memorable one was all Tofu lunch at Umenohana, Kamata, Tokyo.

Water for Coffee

I usually keep three types of water: soft water (Japanese mineral water), hard water (Contrex) and Sparkling water (Perrier).

I use different type of water for different purpose.

Soft water for hot drinks such as tea and coffee.

Hard water for simply drinking WATER.

Sparkling water for when I want to drink sparkling by replacing Soda and beer.

The other day, I was out of soft water when I wanted to have a cup of brewed coffee.

I brewed coffee with hard water and it tasted different from soft water: stronger and more bitter.

I used the same coffee powder and now I learned I can enjoy two different taste by using different type of water.

FiNC

I tried this diet and fitness app for two weeks.

I record weight, food/calories, steps and sleeping hours.

I can obtain information on exercise, food, life style, products, supplements, events, etc.

AI checks on me when I forget to record.

AI suggests based on my record and pattern.

I’m having conversation with AI.

This app provides me points by doing something good for health and wellness and I like to collect points.

Today, I registered and became a member.

This app is not free; but Let’s do it!
