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

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.

Sunday, 9 June 2019, Diving at Bommie Diving Shop, Ito (Tateyama), Chiba

It has been 11 months since my last dive.

Fishermen feed sharks and stingray to protect fish from them; therefore, there are many and I really mean MANY sharks and stingrays at the East Bouy Point.

I was hit by sharks and stingrays.

There is a cute frogfish.

I use old iPhone 5 as my camera so it’s not equip to take a small creature.

This is the best shot for a frogfish.

On the other hand, my friend recently bought a Panasonic TG-5 and took a nice photo using microscope mode. Ta~da~

There are many different designed cute seaslugs.

But my photos are not sharp and clear enough.

Shall I buy a camera so that I can take photos like these? hummmmm
