Last week turned out to be the busiest working trip
I've ever made to Tokyo. Upon arrival it was a series of
Meetings, one after the other. There was more to say,
But since work matters should never be translated onto
The web, I shall talk about something else.
Autumn is coming late to Tokyo - most of the trees were
Still summer-green, except for a few with hues of red or yellow.
In fact, as I took the limousine bus towards Narita, and passed
By the bus terminal at Shinjuku, I saw the temperature billboard
Of 18 degrees celcius. Must be the effects of global warming.
I have this inclination towards Kirin draft served on a frozen mug
And would always order it during dinners in Tokyo. But back in
The hotel, I would always pack a few of the "Chu-Hi", which are
Fruity alcoholic cocktails. They come in delicious Aomori-apple,
Yamanashi-pear, and grape and orange and other fruity flavours.
What happened was that I bought a can too many, and eventually
Had 3-4 cans of leftover Chu-hi. I decided to bring the cans back
To Singapore, and packed them into my luggage. Unfortunately,
A can of Chu-hi, the Calpis-Peach flavoured one, somehow ruptured
In the process, and I arrived in Singapore with a peach-scented suitcase.
