Feels great to be in this country with such a rich cultural heritage – Japan, the land of the rising sun as it is rightly called! Reached here today morning with the arrival at Narita International Airport, Tokyo city. With a short rest at the hotel, I was up and ready for the upcoming hectic schedule with Lunch at 1200 hours followed by meetings with Japan Tourism Agency and Japan National Tourism Organization at 2 pm and Creative Industry Bureau of Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry at 4 pm.
Later today, have a study tour at Roppongi Hills to understand the redevelopment of this particular area and attend a reception and seminar at Roppongi Hills Club. Seems really an interesting itinerary before I end the day, retiring at the hotel; just to begin the day tomorrow with a study tour at TEPIA Museum – where I would get to learn about the Japanese high technology.
Back in my country and an insight about the weekend – lazed in the morning and cooked up Thai Curry and Rice for lunch. Then, had some meetings lined up between 4 pm to 7 pm at Club Millennium. And as I returned back home, was welcomed by Alyona’s parents who had come over to spend the weekend. So, prepared both veg and non-veg Pasta for dinner and checked out the movie ‘The Contractor’.
Sunday morning was back at the office, the FoodFood office, where there was a small havan kept, before they moved onto a new floor. Discussions about the Maha Challenge event also took place there. While we discussed things at the office, Alyona’s mom had prepared a great lunch at home – aamras, puri, chapatti, kadhi, aloo ki subzi and green beans. So, got back to home for the awesome and delicious lunch with my wife’s sister, Jyotsna and her son, Manit. Post lunch, played and got entertained by the little one, before I got ready to catch my flight to Japan later that evening!
And as I’m away from India, here’s some more Oriental delicacies to choose from…
Till I write again.
