I assisted a business meeting in Ebisu, Tokyo.
Ebisu is one of Seven Japanese Gods and he represents success.
I’m pretty sure he will bring business as a result of today’s meeting.
We celebrated with Tendon (Tenpura Rice Bowl) at Tenya, Ebisu and Taiyaki (Sweet Bean in Red Snapper shaped waffle).
Tai (red snapper) is a symbol of good luck coz it’s rhyme Medetai (happy).
There are so many good signs!!
I assisted photo shootings of product, superfood Granola, at Tokyo Gas Shiodome Cooking Studio, Shiodome, Tokyo.
We moved to Prince Hotel Karuizawa for the meeting with the Chief Chef of the area hotel to recommend serving Superfood Granola for the hotel breakfast.
The hotel, Prince Hotel Karuizawa, will host G20 summit in 2019.
This would be a great opportunity to introduce the product globally.
We had our lunch on the Shinkansen (bullet train) on the way to Karuizawa, Gunma.
Many foreign tourists visit Karuizawa for golfing, skiing and shopping at Mitsui Outlet Karuizawa.
The Chef waited for us to serve special menu using Superfood Granola.
What a nice surprise!
These were so good.
I wish we could stay longer, perhaps, staying at the hotel for the holiday.
I assisted the company’s product, Superfood Granola, at the Noma Cooking School, Kichijoji, Tokyo.
I’m happy to witness that the product is well received by Japanese consumers.
At the evening, I met my old friend from Malaysia at Aqua, Imperial Hotel Tokyo.
We couldn’t stop talking though it’s getting late and I mean LATE because we had so much to catch up.
I visited Gakken Holdings to propose a business collaboration for overseas market.
At the lobby, the company displays their educational materials that reminds me of my childhood.
I was invited for dinner reception hosted by C-ASTEC (Chubu Aerospace Industrial Technology Centre: Nagoya/Chubu Area Aerospace Industrial Cluster) at Italian Restaurant Al Porto, Tokyo Big Sight.
I returned to Tokyo Big Sight at the evening.
First, I was hesitated to attend alone but it became a fun evening.
I watched a free projection mapping show when I arrived Tokyo Big Sight.
Then I enjoyed talking to aerospace players from Nagoya (Japan), Germany, Singapore and Malaysia with nice Italian wine and food.
I attended Opening Reception of Japan International Aerospace Exhibition 2018.
The event received many people in uniform (military) and they all wearIng many stars. hahaha
The scale of event was rather small because the event was squeezed in 2018.
The next event supposed to be held in 2020 but we won’t be able to host any event there because Tokyo Big Sight, the trade fair venue, will convert to the press center for Tokyo Olympics 2020.
I managed to meet all contacts that I wanted to follow up at JA 2018.
At the evening, I participated a wine lesson on Champagne at Enoteca Marunouchi.
I tasted following champagnes:
2012 Louis Roederer
C’est si bon!
My friend decides to start a new career.
We shared memories and caught up on each other @ Italian Restaurant Shunsai, Roppongi.
Choco also joined tonight.
