so our french business folks arrived shanghai and my folks are taking care of them. thank god kansai airport flights are back to normal and i was announced by a's employee that i don't have to go to narita anymoreeeeee, hurraaaaaaay, and just go to the airport like i always do. also, because i extended my stay, i called the airport shuttle bus company and their super nice service makes me smile. :) so my european folks europe business trip schedule also got fixed and they are leaving on monday, so i am taking care of business and giving them files they need there. it's good, they will be in europe, and i also go back there with not so many days gap. taking turns traveling. :) folks say billionaire boss and investors especially in good mood these days, they are in good mood most of the time but that's nice to hear. hehe. :) a also announced the november project in the island, i get to go back to the island i love yeaaaaaaaah.
busy busy busy, but thinking what i want from europe again. they go for two wks, i think i want nice chocolates again. it's just in august the euopean folks visited us and gave me many body and skin care products. i also want european spice. hehe. let me think more... what i want. i'm also slowly packing things that i already bought in japan that i'm going to give to folks when i go back. two big suitcases, i am so happy i don't have to go to narita anymore.
2018-09-21-Fri ashはん、see youuuuuu!

2018-09-20-Thu datawing sountrack, luxury elite, esprit and vektroid
datawing soundtrack, luxury elite, vektroid, and etc... vaporwave music is my "today's music." what is that that makes me want to cry when i listen to these nostalgic sounding tunes? but i feel great. it just does. thanx for my european folks that we play datawing together. hehe. :) thanx to the person that made 37 songs datawing soundtrack mix in youtube so much as well. i really love the song "midnight," "mustang," and ESPRIT's "daydream."
pretty bad weather, just eating some 秋刀魚 with rice and natto again. hehe. many many things to throw away and give away, it really takes years whenever i come visit to help out. i wrote before too, but people, your parents and grandparents are getting old, slowly whenever you visit them hometown, helping them 断捨離 and live with lesser things are the things i really recommend you guys. when they die and you go clear out the house with your sisters and brothers, you will really regret you can't just do it in once. :)
2018-09-19-Wed opening all the windows of my home
opening all the windows of my home to let in the fresh air. we love it and what a nice weather today. 西京漬け fish with natto and rice, yummyyyyyyyy. :)
clearing out some things again helping parents unneeded stuff that still could be someone's treasure, hehe putting into "sell" box. hehe. hey, i want these old very kyoto kimono stuff and old american native indian arts and jewelry and cool huge crystals and amethyst for interior display. all these brand wine glasses and plates too. :)
2018-09-18-Tue busy busy hospital
busy busy hospital from early morning, went to a general hospital and got done two departments concerned me these days, and one is exam waiting next wk, and another was fine right now, we see how my health goes. :)
on my way home, i took a train ride one more station to the opposite direction of my home, and really wanted to try out this popular spice curry place, i knew that they close after they sold out but arrived in the afternoon, then sad sad they were closed ran out of their curry. told my good friend that went to another spice curry place last time, we will revenge together next time, arrive earlier! :)
2018-09-17-Mon so a’s folks got me new flight schedule
so a's folks got me new flight schedule and some update about kansai airport. so we decided and got the latest day possible so i can run some more errands in japan. of course handling some projects from home. thank you very much a, and her staffs all the time! i mean i am collaborating working with them for long yrs too, we are team. hehe! :)
2018-09-16-Sun kansai airport update
so since the typhoon, i am part of the people waiting for kansai airport update and etc, but in the situation like this, it doesn't solve anything even if you worry, so you should relax, wait, don't worry. that's what i do. some people are being transferred to narita flights, pay hotel themselves in tokyo to go back to where they came from, and it hurts. but the whole japan is suffering right now, it is our time to be patient and cooperate what we can do. i like it when our investor said "don't worry. yea, i mean the worse case scenario, throw away that ticket and stay until it settles down, because your job is like you can do where ever in the world from home, i'll handle it" family and friends also say "yea. stay longer stay longer." i love that their positiveness. maybe that investor guy, that's why he's so successful. thanx for handling and paying too. hehehe. :)
