Work on Your Dreams! :夢を語る会開催

Hi. It's been almost a year since I wrote the last blog. The reason why I have not written anything here is... it's because I have been busy to settle my new life, as I moved back to Tokyo from JB/Singapore last summer.  It's a bit funny but since I moved back here in Tokyo, my first language in my mind has been switched from English to Japanese. As I don't have any occasions/environment to speak in English, it was so quick! Instead of writing this blog in English, I stared to write another blog in  note . Now I am worrying about losing my sons' English abilities, so as mine. I have almost lost my motivation to work on my dreams; Make the world better through making women's life brighter.    Then I met Ikue again, who is a Cognitive behavioural therapist, after a few years. And I have noticed that I need some companions to make my dreams happen. To get started, Ikue and I decided to organise a gathering to "Talk about our Dreams". And, we

Opening a Biz bank account - 口座開設までのステップ

I wrote 10 Things to Do to start a business in my previous blog. Opening a business bank account is one of the essentials to run a business. In Singapore, there are many banks to chose from. The most popular bank here is DBS Bank, we can see it's ATM everywhere in island-wide. Though, one of my business-owner-friends mentioned that she chose OCBC Bank, not DBS. When I was searching for the Bank info, I found a  useful website which contains a comparison chart of major three banks. Looking at this chart, I chose OCBC bank to minimize the fixed cost. After choosing a bank, these are 4 Steps what I did to open an account; Walked into one of the branches and asked the required documents for account opening Made an appointment with one of the business account representatives Visit a branch with required documents (IC/Cheque book for initial deposit) and had a interview with a representative Write a cheque for initial deposit That's all! Very simple. I was not

Digital Environment: PCの故障と優しい隣人

It's been a while since my last blog. The reason laptop had been stopped working!! Fortunately, I have a nice Singaporean neighbor who used to be a system engineer. Thanks to him, he repaired my kind-of-old laptop within a few days after I had passed it to him. Now it's faster to startup, and all the digital clutter has been cleaned up! Feeling very light and refreshed☺ I noticed that digital environment is crucial to our business speed, and having a good neighbor is a blessing. 約2週間ほど前、突然PCが起動しなくなってしまいました。 そろそろ買い替え時か?と思ったのですが、 近所にすんでいる元SEのシンガポーリアンに 起動しなくなったPCでも修理可能かきいたところ、 もちろん直せるからPCかしてごらん、と数日で直してくれました! 持つべきものはよい隣人ですね❤ 御礼にいくらか払おうとしても受け取ってくれなかったので、 昨夜そのご夫妻にお寿司でお礼をさせていただきました。 このPC,起動スピードが遅いし電源コードの差込口がゆるんで時々充電できないし、 色々問題を抱えていたのですが、この隣人が解体して差込口まで直してくれて、 不要なファイルがなくなったせいか起動スピードも改善し、 最新アンチウィルスソフトまでダウンロードしてくれてかなり快適になりました♪ 親切な隣人がいて本当に助かりました。 Digital Security Tips: Setting a system password can prevent the hackers to break into your computer. Did you kn

Bridge : symbol of my passion ロゴのアイディア

I love bridges. Since I was a young girl, I love crossing bridges, it's maybe because I grew up in a city with lots of beautiful rivers. I love discovering and exploring new world. I get excited when I cross the bridge, as another view is awaiting beyond the bridge. Bridge is to connect two separated areas. I love connecting people, something will happen when people are connected. I have been always wanted to be a bridge between different cultures, and I believe I have been doing this over the years without being aware of it. As the bridge is a symbol of my passion, I'm going to use it for my company logo. I can't wait to show it to you...!! 突然ですが、私は橋が好きです。 川が多い町で育ったせいか、小さい頃から橋を渡るのが大好き。 橋を渡った先には違う景色が待っているので、 橋を渡るときはいつもワクワクしてしまいます。 橋は隔てられた二つの地を結ぶ役割があります。 私は人と人をつなぐのが大好き。 人との出逢いで何かが生まれるからです。 なぜかわからないのですが、私は小さい頃から いつか異文化の橋渡しをしたいと思っていました。 そして実際に、海外に長く生活する中で、 自然とその役目を果たしてきたと思います。 昨日から会社のロゴデザインをしているのですが、 私のパッションを表すのにぴったりな「橋」を シンボルマークとして使用する予定です。
