Moving Days and Nights ステキな、長い夜

On 3rd, Wednesday, we had an important and huge party after work with our clients and Prince Fushimi (the imperial family of Japan) and it was an incredible experience. 
It is because the restaurant is a few minute-walk away from our office it helped us organize the group of the clients and carry on the party.
This time, again, I participated in this party as an interpreter with another coworker of mine. 
Since one week the Swedish vice president, stationed in Singapore at the moment, has been working with us in Tokyo, there needed one more interpreter besides me as we have an executive director from Bulgaria. 
I was relieved to hear that she, my coworker, is also attending it.

The man, who you can hardly have a chance to come close to and talk to, Prince Fushimi was such a lovely person with humor and I had a positive shock. 
Wish I could've had more time to talk to him. I will get to see him again in November.
Although I've taken so many photos of him and our clients at the night and wish to share some of them here, I'm not allowed unfortunately. I'm sorry. 

The party was closed as Prince Fushimi had to leave around 9pm and as I expected, wanted it not to happen at the same time, we headed to Karaoke. VIP room.
I wanted to go back home straight for it needs 2 hour-train ride but it apparently didn't allow me to go. 
1. I'm a newcomer. 
2. Now I'm the only interpreter as she had to go back to the office and get stuff done. 
3. Unluckily I still had some time to stay. 
4. Karaoke is just right there. 

My president said to me that he will reverse a hotel room nearby and I could stay there. 
I had nothing. No undies, no makeup cleansing product, soap, skin lotions, cosmetics, and at all. 
Karaoke was fun but this wasn't the last part of the night for me. I had to go shopping to get all those items.
It was already 0:30am. I got some travel allowance and used it to pay for the stuff, taxi, and the hotel. 
I went to bed around 2:30am. My department leader told me that 10:00am is the office hour tomorrow for everyone.
And she? She came to 12:00pm. She lives only 20 min away by train from the office. 
Okay, this kind of night, no return home, should be experienced once, not anymore. And I did it and won't anymore. 
I take the last train. 
This whole week has passed again just like a blink. Like falling asleep for a minute and you realize that it's already weekend.
So so fast.
Have a nice weekend, everyone!
