Good eveing everyone,
Now sunday is coming here. How do you do? I am relaxing with listening to music and blogging.
As I told you before, I had business dinner yesterday to entertain the visitors from US branch. I read the previous entries of mine, and felt embarrassed because I was so nervous; Anyway, let me talk about it!
In the morning, my boss told me that he would not go to the dinner because he had a stomachache. Honestly I thought he should have not. He invited them for dinner and they spared time for him! well, I would say that after I got promotion!
After work I went to the hotel by train to pick up the visitors, and we went to the restaurant by taxi! haha. It's always nice to visit someone for business, not to host! Our taxi crawled through the jammed traffic because it was friday night.
Other people from my dept. already sat in the seats in the restaurant when we arrived. We let the visitors have seats in which they could show the beautiful view!:) The visitors were all excited to see the view from the 46th floor! I wish I had had a same seat.
As I was the organizer, I did everything, and it was 'well done' from self evaluation. I asked them what they would like to have, ordered drink, and served food to them. We could see Tokyo tower, Tokyo bay, high-ways which run through tall buildings. If it is the lunch time and clear day, you can see Mt. Fuji! Luckily they'd been to Tokyo tower for sightseeing before our meeting, so they reminded Tokyo tower and talked about it to us:)
Food was very nice. There's no denying that beautiful view decorated the good food as well. Here I would like to show the menu..
-Vegitables seasoned with Dashi soup
-Cold Tofu with dried bonito flakes (love it!)
-Japanese pancake with Kimchi(Korean pickles) and Octpus
-Sashimi (squid, tuna, and snapper)
-Grilled Chicken with Nagoya style
-Shabushabu (boiled pork and cabbage)
-Jyuwari Soba noodle (means Soba made from 100% soba flour)
-Japanese citrus icecream!(yam)
I wanted to have snapper but the other boss took the rest!!!! ahhh! I could say 'Having a spite because of the food will last for some time' quoted from a saying in Japan. I am just kidding though. Snapper is my favorite but I will wait for next time.
One of the visitors from US liked Sake very much. I ordered it 3 times for him, and we asked the label to take it back. The waiter put the label to the paper like a page of an album! We were very pleased to have that:) It was nice memory.
They said thank you to us many times, and liked the view and food so much! I am sure the dinner was very successful. Dear Amy, thank you for telling me some expressions. I will write back to you again in the weekend:)
I will talk to you later! See you and have a nice weekend:)
