Authentic Ryokans keep some beer in the fridge in every room. I don’t know if a system is only for Japan, but it is controlled by computer. If you take a bottle from the fridge, it will charge automatically. The drinks in the fridge are really expensive. At the Ryokan in Takamatsu, a middle size beer was 700yen. I don’t know how much it is at liquor shop but I guess it is about 250 yen. In addition, if you order beer when you eat dinner, it is more expensive. We ordered three bottles and one bottle was 800 yen. I think Ryokans take too much. If the beer is not so expensive like that, I think they can take additional charge when we eat dinner, but beer is expensive enough. I don’t drink beer but I want them to reconsider about the cost.
I received a result of the medical check. It was Grade A! ‘A’ is the best and ‘F’ is the worst. If you are really healthy, you think it is not hard to get Grade A. But that’s not true. I always think I’m health. I don’t drink and smoke. I always wake up early and sleep enough. I don’t usually catch a cold even if other guys have. But my results had been always C. Last year I got Grade F. I went to a clinic but the doctor couldn’t find anything wrong. I don’t know why my results were so bad. I had been wanting to get Grade A. Finally, I got Grade A! It’s not easy to get A. I want to keep this level forever!
A few weeks ago, my boss asked me to make a contact with a foreign country. I didn’t know what kind of things I would have to do but he said that I would only talk about flights or hotel. I didn’t think it was difficult for me, so I said “Yes”.
On 24th, we woke up early and took a bath again. Taking a bath in the morning makes us wake us up. Breakfast was big, too. I couldn’t eat everything. Akemi and Kiyomi didn’t drink. I felt something sad. We planed to crime Konpira-san but Akemi hurt her leg, so we gave up climbing. Akemi bought Senbei close to Konpira-san.
I had a really good vacation. I visited Takamatsu with Akemi and Kiyomi. We went there by train. We changed trains a couple of times and arrived at Takamatsu around noon. We moved to Yashima soon. I know there is a good Udon restaurant there. Many people had had three-day holiday, so Udon restaurant was very crowded. We lined for buying food tickets and we had to wait for being served our Udon. Udon was not so good than I remembered. Akemi ate large size Udon. I guessed she couldn’t eat all of them but she did.
I feel a bit scared because I'm so lucky recently. As you know, a factory I used to work at was closed. Some co-workers moved to the other factory, some co-workers quit their job and the others were fired. Over 200 employees left the factory.
All in all, making a catalog is easier than it used to be. Recently I look at Meissen ceramic on the web site. All of the pictures are very beautiful. When they take the pictures, do they always hire a photographer?
I ate AYU-RAMEN. Kamigata Food Fare has been holding at Keihan department store now. I can eat special food there.
AYU-RAMEN is made of AYU and Ramen literally. I think AYU is the king of fish, and I really love AYU. But I didn’t know if AYU-RAMEN was good or not. I thought it would be smelly but it wasn’t. The inside of AYU had already been removed. I could eat its head and its bone. AYU was really nice but Ramen was so so.
I can eat AYU-RAMEN anytime at Kuzuha-mall. Recently I visit Kuzuha often, so I have a chance to eat it one more time.
Since I visited the Meissen exhibition, I have been looking at Internet site and looking for Meissen ceramics. I can see many Miessen ceramics on the auction site and they are very cheap. Some items are too cheap. I doubted about them and I gazed at them very carefully. Then, I found out they were knockoffs. Some exhibitors say they don’t know if their items are imitations or not. But they are obviously fakes. One exhibitor says he/she believes that his/her items are authentic but I know they are knockoffs. I think when I buy Meissen ceramics, I have to touch and look at it very carefully. It is very dangerous to buy them on the Internet sites. By the way, I ordered Meissen photo book. I have been looking for it for a long time. It is also expensive but I know it isn’t a fake.
We had a big election yesterday. The administration party won perfectly. I thought Liberal Democratic Party would win but they got many votes than I expected. I didn't vote on LDP because I don't like the prime minister. He put up many women for the election. I felt it was a vote-catching policy. I think LDP got votes too much. I am anxious about authoritarian government. I hope Mr. Koizumi will reconsider about his policy and become an adult.
My sleeping time decreased after I moved to the new office. I usually used to go to sleep around 10:00P.M. Now I go to bed around 11:00P.M. After that, I always read a book a little, so I think I fall asleep around 11:30P.M. One hour is really valuable for me. I can do a lot of things.
Recently DION blog site is very busy. I try to connect it several times a day but I can't complete it. I have to spend lots of time to put up my blog.
A few days ago, DION announced that it added a server. Many users were exultant. Of course, me too. Yesterday was the day of work. At night, I tried to put up my blog but the line was really busy and finally I had to give up. Today I read an announcement of DION. It said, the new server had a defect and they postponed its work. Last night, I thought why the line didn't connect, but now I could know why. Why didn't they tell us sooner? I know it could announce it last night but it told us today. It was too late. Many users are very angry. Me too. I want to change the provider but it is troublesome. I hope it will add the new server as soon as possible.
I visited our factory in Kyoto last Thursday. A man who is the president of the factory in Switzerland would visit there and my co-worker, Mick, and I went there to introduce our factory. I didn't need to go there but my boss wanted to know my English level, and he also thought I would be able to know about the factory.
