I had such an uique party last week..
Party in drug store!!
At least, in Japanese standard, no one can imagine having party in drug store:)
It is a drug store in our neighbor and the owner knows Odie for a long time.
Colombo, the owner of the drug store and a good consultant. When Odie was small child, Colombo often teased him, telling Odie that the helicoper flying from the hospital is his. Small Odie always believe that the helicopter really belongs to Colombo.
Colombo also gave Odie an advise when he wanted to become a self-employeed. He has been a good advisor.
A brother of Colombo is a professional singer! Having a party in drug store is already very unusual for me but they even offered guests a "live performance"!!
It was indeed amazing. I also met some people who was attending our engagement party 3 years ago. And they didn't know that I'm already living here for 2 years!! Well, now they know. It's also comfortable for me knowing nice people in neighbor.
So the party has continued. Last year, becauce of my German school, I was not able to participate. But this year, it was perfect oppotunity for me to get to know so many great people.
Especially, I'm now desperately in need of support from Colombo for my new business idea.
I talked to him in this regards and it seems like he will help me out. It's not yet confirmed but it would be nice if I can have a business partner like Colombo. I can leart a lot from him, who is experienced self-employeed.
This night, the drug store where I always walk by turned out to be a fun party venue. Who ever thought of it... That's why life in Switzerland is full of surprise.

I had such an uique party last week..
Donnerstag, 4. Dezember 2008
Again, I had such a fun time with all the families of Odie. Once in a year, this huge party is held in Basel, hosted by a brother of Godzilla.
For me, it was a second time! I was really surprised, when I first joined the party last year because of this huge buffet! It is as beautiful as the banquet party in 5 star hotel!!
Upon I arrived, I was already totally excited for a fun day..!
This is really gorgeous!! In Japan, I've never seen such a selsction of cheese, even in a buffet in 5 star hotel!! (I always have to compare with 5 star hotel since I belong to it before..)
The bread, Zoft is also hugeeeeee and it's a handmade!!
Fruits are also part of the decoration and the guests can pick them up anytime they want..! This time, our friend from Japan, Morita san was joining and he was totally amazed. He was telling me every time " this is not possible in Japan!":)
,,,which one is Godzilla..? Godzilla and his brother are two youngest among their 4 brorhers and sisters. I can easily imagine how naughty they were..:)
So were eating and chatting whole time.
I also fell in love with this boy..
He likes playing with me and also with Odie.He was so cuteeee! I wish I have such a boy!
In the late afternoon, we went for a walk. "A Walk"? I thought it will be a quick walk. But it ended up as 1 hour long walk all the way to the main station!! Even an oldest sister of Godzilla joined and she walk together without any problem!! This is very amazing!! In Japan, nobody even think of letting 70year old lady walk so long!!
We also walk back to home.. The total distance we walk on this day is about 7km, I assume..
Back to the home, the party has continued..The room is light up cozy and comfy..
Time for dessert! Both cakes were yummy yummy.I already had enough chocolate but I was able to eat two pieces of cakes. Oh noooooo!
I also brought green tea cream with me. I knew someone will bring cakes so some cream to add on those cakes might be an idea. But it seems like I didn't put enough sugar in it.. Since Japanese prefer having less sugar in dessert, this cream was my taste, not for guests.. Next time, I will make something sweet or perhaps Avocado sushi is better..
Finally "Art contest" has begun!!
This is actually an art from the daughter of Godzilla's brother. Two daughters of him are both artist. Hmmmm it seems that Godzilla's relative have all "art" in their blood!
I really really love this family! They are not only kind but all fun and cheerful. I always feel comfortable in this family. Maybe it's also because they are always making effort speaking high German with me. I believe my German skill has been improved from last year so it was even more fun this time. But my goal is understanding Swiss German without having problem. If they can speak Swiss German to me (although I reply then back in high German) it will be even more fun!!
I'm very proud being one of the member of this family!
