Cursed? Blessed?

Long day finished with good drinking.
Though, started with error like this:

I was definitely cursed because i didn't type anything on this computer.
Rather, I was away from it. I was typing something on iPad, instead.
Why happened?

I do not get surprised if hapened while typing something.
I bet that some application was running in background and crushed. Oh boy, not my fault.
Got to be cursed by something.

LIke movie "GHOST" - hahaha.

Had to spend time in line for lunch. MoonFlower wanted to get some taste out of this particular shop.
Yeah, it is bagel shop called "123 Bagel."
NOT even 1st time. Though, there is always a line for great yummy bagel.

Took me about 20-25 minutes to place my order.
At least I secure the domestic peace because I completed errands as favor to MF.
You know what I mean.

Had 2 teleconference in late afternoon.
While attending, my iPhone showed short message from an old friend.
It was Kirk. I hadn'd seen him for over a year.

We got together in Kyobashi area and went to eat YAKITON as shown above.
Not YAKITORI, folks.
-TORI is chikecn and -TON is pork.

Never ever checked out this place before. Pretty darn good!!!
Good foods at low price. Oh boy, my ideal destination EVER!!!
Kirk certainly does know how to spend money for good drinking.

Bitter start at work finished very positive feeling after good drinks! Hahaha.
Thank you, Kirk!


Surprise means Christmas present?
Got an unexpected call… coming in to my personal phone.
Very rare to ring while I was working.

Usually pass the call while on duty… but I have to take it because of the caller.
Caller ID shows my old boss… that is surprise.
My first-ever boss was over the phone and sounded very fine.

He just wondered how I was doing and gave me a call.
He saw some advertisement of a firm that I used to work.
I then had to give him current firm's name for reference.

Short and instant but valuable time passed.

Made me feel like a great day ahead and I focused on task that I have to finish within the day.
Today' main task of mine is sales data analysis.
As a result of analysis, sales did improve and show significant difference. Pretty darn good!

After work, small gathering took place for year-end party #5.
Maybe I should worry how much I should drink…

Friends' gathering

Part of year-ending party among selected friends.
Some cancellation disappointed me. But the time was excellent:

Too much drinks? Too much good time?
Big night it was. I was called upon gathering in Omotesando.
Gathering is among those who spent same time in US for study abroad.

Some of them still live overseas.
I met some new people as well.
Good time and was a good incentive to myself. I bet that it is the same to others as well.

Farewell: ex-Boss Miura-san

Tenugui (hand towel) as anniversary gift

It is called "Premium Friday" today. Last Friday of the month, government "encourages" nation to finish the work early for fun.
Yes, it wants us to spend money and get drunk.
Thus, I definitely follow such rule and intend to set a good example.


I was ready from the beginning of the day… even refused to brink company laptop to the work.
My firm does prohibit employees to go to drink with laptop for hedging the risk of information leak by lost.
The choice is merely between the case that you leave PC in the office locker and that you leave PC home.

1st case is that people usually would take… but I came to choose the latter.
Reason is that I do not want to be away from PC until Monday. That can be even more critical for me.
Thus, I tried to sustain without PC for entire Friday afternoon. I made myself stuck to iPad Pro.

That was enough, actually.

Along with blue suits and new tie from Italian Franco Bassi, Panerai Luminor Due was on my wrist today!

Soon as wrapping it all up for the day, I showed up to my usual place…


"Kaminariya" is my usual place - tavern located in Shinjuku 3-chome.
Master handed me the small gift by sudden.
Wow, it was traditional Japanese hand towel with the shop log on it.

5-year anniversary gift it was. COOL!

Usual menu, usual chose and usual fun. What else needed?

I left a message to several friends via SNS to make sure that they know where I am tonight.
Planned to drink alone… but didn't bother much if this became several rather than one.
Friend Amy showed up after work. She joined me tonight over drinks…

Fun and definitely entertaining night for me. Amy and I even joined a couple drinking next to us.
Lots of common topics like ANIME - Gundam, Galaxy Express 999, Mazinger Z, etc.
Man, I want to see all episodes of Gundam again… only Amazon Prime provides the program… not my Hulu subscription. Darn it.


Once again - Japanese traditional hand towel. "Tenugui" is hand towel.

Doubled name logo on the top - "Kaminari" as Thunder and "Inazuma" as Lightning
Good pared name as collaboration.
Thank you for neat gift. Will use it soon and I definitely come back to the tavern "Kaminariya" again. Very soon.
