Even it was a short business trip, I usually text massage to my family, sometimes we even talk on facetime to see how things are going.
Family is very important, they are my ta ka ra mo no, experiencing things together, always finding something new.
I don't remember and know how many dishes we shared together in the past, and how many loves we will share together from now on.

The number of dishes, could be the symbolic object of our belief, and it's all about our quality, a quality based family we share to the world.

When I Start

When I Start

I used to dream about my future, or be concerned how my life would be.
I recently started to think and believe that when you think about starting somethings new in your life, that would be the best timing to work on. NOW. Not tomorrow, there is NO guarantee that you have a tomorrow, not next week, there is a great possibility that you would forget about what you would've decided to work on for your future.

Decide and move TODAY, when you start, that will be a perfect day for you.
