18 to 24 Jun 2018 Nihon

This is the long awaited trip for OS, MD, ED and moi to a destination I promised myself I would go back to….. perhaps, again and again  I savored every bit of our grand vacay.  OS and I were first to travel, followed by MD and then ED.  It was strange meeting up with the kids like this but it all worked out because of commitments.  

I savored every bit of Tokyo.  The last time I set foot here was almost a quarter of a century ago, my stay was so brief I was in the city on the first and last day of my six-month stay in Japan.  This time around, I will enjoy each moment.   

Exploring by myself in a strange city with friendly people and learning to cope with my broken Nihonggo to go around, discover hidden gems, meeting an imperfect fur friend and her loving obasan, getting lost and finding my way back to the apartment.

All clean this month.

The big event happened without a major hitch.  Despite the rains and last minute venue switch, they came.  The live streaming allowed us to reach global audience.  I was pleased seeing the comments and number of views.

The funds came just when I needed it most.

Peace at last…. C left the job for greener pastures and more importantly for her own peace.

Marie, my wandering rescue cat, who strayed after I rescued three kittens, is back.

Again very clean slate.

The big event preparation appears to be on track. We are expecting a large audience.  I’m hoping to top last’s year’s affair.

I and S attended an event that would tie up efforts on our new roadshow.  I am seeing a pool of experts we can rely on in future briefings.

The network I’ve linked with has proved effective in resource generation and publicity for our events.  Even S feels comfortable within that network.

Very clean slate.

Meeting up with like-minded people and the interaction with my team was pleasant.   Some co-assessors from past applications  were there and we seemed to be more attuned to each other verging on fondness because of the experience we shared.  Many assessors including my friend C begged off from serving this year.

MD and OS started their vacation.  Home seems brighter with these two around.  In the weekend, ED came and went.  

More early than late since I’m on training for three days.
