Had a Google Hangout mtg with client in Japan. Mariko joined for the first time.
At Hubba, they had a christmas party and we joined it with kids having presents to exchange.
Around 20 people surrounded a big christmas tree, we introduced ourselves, had a game called “KING” which is exactly the same as “Ohsama Game” in Japan, exchanged present and ate snacks.
Children also enjoyed although they understand no English or Thai.
Our boy won the Apple TV, which was a special present from Hubba.
Ace, a guy who has his office and staff in Hubba gave me a link to a facebook page of a bike shop where I can buy a new bicycle in Bangkok. He even told Mariko that bike is really nice for my health and it will save taxi cost.
wake up at 5-6 in the morning and do emails and what’s today’s work
learning Thai a bit. like 10minutes
go to hubba at 9, when there’s almost nobody yet
lunch with other people or family
work until 5-6 in the evening and come back home to see kids & putting them into bath tab
kids go to bed at the latest 9, maybe 8.
So far, we are far from the life like above, for we have too many things to do, many jobs to be done and not enough time. Kids are always around us and they make us happy and tired.
I met Kat-san again. She was my Thai teacher in Tokyo and she is now in Bangkok until new year. She is also a blogger. http://redlovetree.com/ and http://japaijapan.com/ are a few of her websites. She’s writing a Japan’s guide book for Thai people. We talked if we can share our job and knowledge each other.
