Do You Have Moon in the Philippines?

We got out of the office at about 2:45am. The sky was clear and the moon shined enchantingly. Our Japanese boss turned to face us and asked, “Do you have moon in the Philippines?”

Sure, the Philippines is a third world country and there are a lot of things that we do not have, but I am pretty sure that the MOON IS NOT ONE OF THEM. Rather than be offended by the question though, I found myself in stitches at the sheer absurdity of the question. Hahaha. I don’t know if that question should be dignified with an answer :))

My Japanese Valentine’s

Bernice and I decided to add a spin to our Valentine’s and celebrate it like how a Japanese girl would. Instead of waiting for guys to give us chocolates and flowers during this day of hearts, we were the ones giving out some sweet tokens to the guys.

Happy Chinese New Year

I am still at the office, it is 1AM JST. No signs of going home anytime soon. Times like these I wish I could spend with my family. I now remember why I was able to quit this job last December. However, because of the business trip opportunity, I decided to hang on for a little while.

Still… This is just no way to spend the new year :-/

Anyhow, I wish everyone a happy new year! 2008 is the year of the rat. It’s my time to shine 😉

Stalker Moves

I finally saw the bishie again. He came to the office a few hours ago and sat behind me. I can’t bring myself to take a picture of him (at least not upfront), especially not here in the office.

Gomen ne, stalker-sensei (I am sorry, stalker master). This was the best I could do.

Osaka Day 3 – Close Encounter with a Bishie

1/18

We were running late for our second day of work. It was another hectic morning to the office and we barely made it on time. On top of that, I did not see any school boys 😦

Osaka Day 2 – Work, Boys, and More Boys!

1/17

I woke up at around 6:00AM to get ready for the first day of work. It was hectic. I almost drowned in the sea of black and brown jackets worn by the busy, busy office people raring to get to work. The Japanese have a certain strut, a very brisk and fast strut. I walk very leisurely, so I would be considered as a jama or nuisance, a hindrance to the otherwise steady influx of the marching Japanese workforce.

Osaka Day 1 – Osaka, Here I Come!

After more than two years working at a Japanese company, I have been, by some stroke of divine intervention, finally in Japan! I have decided to log this momentous event in my life by blogging my day-to-day misadventures here! I hope I can sustain writing about my sojourn in Osaka 😀
