Had a great time in Japan with all my family. I have more than 20 cousins in Japan and didn’t have much time to meet them all but had a quality time with me parents and my closest cousins. 2年ぶりの日本。二家族で25人のいとこを持つわたしは、みんなに会いたいと思っても今回はちょっと無理でした。。。。兄妹ののように育った雅彦とともチャン家族と楽しい2週間を過ごしました。

Thank you for all the people supported my restaurant 7 years.

先日、日本人の観光客様に「とてもおいしい夕飯でした。洋食ばかりなので、ひさしぶりの美味しい日本食でお腹がホッとしました。」と言われたとき、あー、お店頑張って続けてきてよかったと思いました。
We had Japanese family from Japan last night and they told that they really enjoyed the dinner.

They have been eaten Bread and potatoes for last few days and now their tummy is happy and relax from eating Japanese food.
I felt that I am so grateful continuing having my business for last 7 years when I hear some compliment from our customers.
