Meeting After Meeting

I am assisting an instant noodle manufacturer to penetrate Japanese market.

Their products are all natural so food tasting session with potential buyers are fun.

To my surprise, each buyers have different feedback towards the products.

We can all learn from their feedback to improve the product.

At night, I had dinner @ Italian Restaurant Papa Milano, Nihonbashi, Tokyo with my golf friend.

Yes, I agree we need to plan golf!

Cheers!

twitch

Have you heard of twitch?

This application is to stream game related news, activities and performance.

I am not a gamer; though, I promote game artists as one of my jobs.

My friend recently performed at PAX EAST 2018 – Final Fantasy XV A Special Orchestral Performance in Boston.

You need to download twitch application and register yourself; however, you can enjoy a good quality visual and sound for free.

I’m not a gamer; however, I simply enjoyed nice orchestral music and I believe you would, too.

The founder of Video Game Orchestra, Mr. Shota Nakama gathered talented musicians to play game sound with professional choirs and orchestra; he created a new game music industry.

He is a guitarist, performer, composer, MC and many more.

The next show is coming up: CAPCOM LIVE at Irving Plaza, New York on 9 June 2018.

If you are in the area, please join the live to rock together.

1st Anniversary

I managed to finish my work by 5 pm and it’s Friday.

I didn’t want to go back home yet so I asked my office mate for dinner.

At the office, I don’t want to stay back so I don’t talk much.

In addition, usually, my mind is occupied with tasks and projects.

I totally forgot it’s been one year since she joined.

At our office, we don’t have a custom to celebrate an event together among office colleagues; she must have felt lonely.

It was good that I asked her out tonight.

I celebrated her 1st Anniversary at our office at Doburo, Ginza.

It’s Izakaya (Japanese style pub), but has nice Japanese atmosphere.

Food and drinks are good and reasonable; I also enjoyed talking with her.

Crazy Action

On Monday, I had a full day back-to-back business meetings because all meetings became 2 hours meeting.

I even missed my lunch.

When we finished at 5 pm, we rushed to Tokyo Station to catch a Shinkansen (bullet train) to go to Kyoto.

I was invited to Ohana (private time with Geisha) to have fun with Geisha!

I had an important meeting next day at 9:30 am at Kawasaki, Kanazawa.

It’s a crazy plan but it was manageable if I take the first Shinkansen back to Tokyo…hopped on the next available Shinkansen for Kyoto.

Quickly checked in at Kyoto Century Hotel which is conveniently located next to Kyoto Station.

The room is modern, clean and cozy.

Then rushed to Ochaya-san (Geisha Tea House).

Others waited for us to arrive to start the evening.

We had nice tori-nabe (chicken pot) for dinner; chicken are so fresh that it requires a few tens of seconds of cooking in boiling soup.

Followed by dance.

We also played Ozashiki Asobi (games).

It was magically fun!!!

The next day, I managed to wake up 5 am to catch 6:17 am Shinkansen back to Tokyo to attend meetings.

After meetings, I attended a business dinner.

Since I had to arrange the dinner, I decided to organize it at my favorite Tempura restaurant Mikaku, Roppongi.

This restaurant is my favorite because tempura are so crispy; chef cooks in front of us!

I had nice Haze Hire Zake (grilled goby fish fin sake) to enjoy these tempura.

Grilled fish fin adds nice roasty smell and flavor to sake.

I had Ten-don (tempura rice bowl) for my rice.

We had nice home made strawberry sorbet to refresh our mouth.

Chef grows vegetables and even these strawberries.

The following morning, my friend left Tokyo for Hong Kong to continue her business trip.

Nothing was planned in advance, but these three days became memorable.

Yes, this time I took many crazy actions; but I think crazy actions add spice to our life. hahaha

The Calm before the Storm

I went for the second body and facial treatment today because I get Birthday Girl discount for spa treatment this month.

I learned greatly how to treat my body and face.

It was nice three hours.

Then I went to Haneda International Airport at night to pick up my friend from Australia.

Yes, I will have busy day and night with her starting tomorrow. hahaha
