I haven't written a blog in a while but we have caused enough problems within the past week. When our computer got shut down, I was forced to wait so in the past week, I went to Chinatown for the 34th Annual Asian and Pacific Islander heritage festival. I was here for a singer named Setsuko and her show goes on a bit late due to a stage setup. After Setsuko's concert, an unexpected guests has came over but they haven't found me or at least they did. They were Reni Mimura and Agent Sato. Both of them are handing out flyers and selling sushi. I didn't expect the stage will involve some martial arts or taiko but because of the rain, their shows are taken place inside.
Megumi Watada was a good singer but I have no interests in following her. Then Mariko Morimoto sings with her other bands. I was originally going to buy her CD but looks like she had found me as one of her supporters similar to Lulla Miyuki or Atsumi Ishibashi of Robin's Egg Blue. I have to admit, Mariko Morimoto was unexpected to become a friend but I have to follow her but I did not give her my counterpart name. Is it possible that Mariko isn't connected to her Japanese heritage? I rather not discuss it. During Ki-Yo's concert, I left and Mariko gave me her flyer for Wednesday's show.
Unfortunately, because of that day I didn't went so I ended up going to Still Mind Zendo for Sumie Kaneko and Nobuko Miyazaki. This event is held by Mar Creation which Hiroshi Kono is founded by the company and j-Summit New York was the affiliate.
Then last Saturday, I went to Paramus Catholic High School at New Jersey for Smile '13 which is a charity show for Fukushima. It is presented by T.M.H. dance. I don't have photos so I only capture the food and the crowd. 21 amazing peformances and each of them and it has been great. Also at the intermission, 10tecomai's Tomoko and Tomas with their daughter Yuria found me and of course they're good people.
Reiko Morikawa is too hard to tell and her hair is now black for the whole show but I didn't forget her smiling face. The only person I want to avoid is Saori Kato and I have no business being around her and especially her disrespectful ways which started at MIKA Japanese cuisine & bar which she called me in to get drunk. Saori may be a good trainer to her students but when it comes to alcohol drinking, she isn't good at respecting others. Also, she isn't good respecting our Facebook fanpage either.
Something tells me that the new Maid Cafe in Chinatown is going to be open everyday but I hope it's alcohol free like Just Sweets in East Village similar to Apple Kissa.
And finally, daily church service for Sundays. Last night's evening service was special with Team Nippon.
