My new watch and I love it❤️
Suddenly, I was invited to attend two (2) webinars this morning.
To be asked to join VCs and webinars at very last minutes became one of common new normals.
Now I’m glad that I attended I thought it’s going to be a boring “webinar”.
I spotted a friend that I haven’t communicated in a while among other participants.
We started to communicate via WhatsApp and she invited me to join a work out and exercise together via WhatsApp tonight!
I pulled out a yoga mat and a selfie stick cum tripod to join four ladies in Malaysia to work out (Tabata/HIIT) together via WhatsApp.
I sweat, felt good exercising and happy to be connected despite our distance.
And YES, this is definitely one of new normals and THIS I enjoy.
Choco was very supportive!
Thank you my friend for extending me an invitation!
I will try to join regularly!

The drone performance was awesome!
I’m happy that I could watch the whole performance with my naked eyes on live!
My PC hub was busted.
Least I think it’s busted because I started to receive an alert message that I need to make sure that it gets more than 90 V when it’s directed connected to the socket.
It’s 4.5 years old… Rest In Peace, Amen
I discussed with a vendor and we decided to get an USB hub with a LAN socket.
I thought my agony with bad internet connection was solved but no….
I still had a bad internet and network printer connection.
I call a technician to look into it and found that IP setting on my PC was required.
I thought it was removed by another technician. Hummm
Least a network printer problem was solved.
Was it caused by a hardware problem or a simple IT matter.
I would lose my mind when I don’t have an access to internet because I would feel useless.
I hate to be chased but I hate to be locked out.
I had a Spanish food for lunch at Ginza Espero.
Each of us can select a dish from 4 categories to customize our own lunch.
The cost efficiency is definitely high and all delicious!
Later I became busy posting about the restaurant and food on Instagram and Twitter (I started recently at both @sonokotchi ) to get a complementary sherry and rum raisins ice cream.
Ow this was worth troubling for.
Well later I noticed my mistake.
The restaurant asked for #銀座エスペロ in Japanese, but I #espero and #ginza separately and in English. Ooops
But I managed to get yummy ice cream. Yeah
I met Ultraman.
There is a Pocket Monster vending machine and guess who is a sales person….
I received a text from my boss late at night (past midnight) on Thursday that we can work from home on Friday, 8 January 2021.
I’m glad to hear a news.
I happily reported to my boss that I took note of a text and I won’t have any problem working from home because I brought back necessaries from office.
I like to work from home because I can work in comfortable clothes and be with Choco.
Choco seemed VERY happy to see me at home.
I visited the headquarter of NEC Corporation, a leading Japanese electric company, and had a tour at NEC Future Creation Hub.
The company was established in 1988 and has over 120 years of history.
This earlier PC was developed together with Bill Gates…..
Today, NEC is famous for face recognition machines.
Their products are currently installed at local and overseas international airports.
The company is Gold Sponsor for Tokyo Olympics and will support the event by installing their facial recognition machines with body temperature checking function.
I’ve experienced most cutting edge technologies which we would surely use in our daily life in near future.
It was a fun visit and proud to introduce this Japanese company: NEC Corporation.
The service to purchase Takarakuji online started on 24 October 2018.
The Takarakuji counter is opened from 9 am to 5:40 pm on weekdays only at designated kiosks and Mizuho Bank; therefore, it was difficult for me to purchase Takarakuji.
Today, I can purchase Takarakuji online via official website or apps for 24/7 throughout a year.
I can not select lucky number ticket but if I don’t buy it, I cannot win.
I bought three sets (1 set for 10 tickets) of Summer Jumbo (1st prize JPY 500 million or USD 5 million) and two sets of Summer Mini (JPY 10 million or USD 0.1 million).
The winner number was announced on 21 August 2020 and I regret to know that I didn’t win.
I only won complementary prize which is one ticket worth of value for each set.
I spent a total of JPY 15,000 (USD 150) and won only JPY 1,500 (USD 15). Boo hoo
One of benefits of online purchasing is saving me from going to the counter to cash it.
If I win – hopefully, one day – the system will automatically remit the amount in the registered bank account when the amount is greater than JPY 10,000 (USD 100) or I can request for remittance.
In addition, I can get points from each purchasing amount and I can use the points to purchase Takarakuji tickets.
I plan to buy Halloween Jumbo (winning prize for JPY 300 million or USD 3 million) and Halloween Mini (winning prize for JPY 10 million or USD 0.1 million) which are scheduled to be sold on 23 September 2020.
Hopefully I can hit a jackpot one day.
We need to face this to check on our body temperature and wearing a mask to enter movie, gym, etc.
