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. 
Aaaaaalright. 
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. 
Whatever…
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!


3日終業後に元皇族の伏見殿下も参加のパーティがあり、クライアントの人たちとも親しくなれて充実した一日になりました。
私はもう一人の女性社員と一緒に通訳として参加させてもらいました。六本木のオフィスから歩いて行けるレストランだったので皆さんを連れて誘導し、スムーズに夕食に運べました。
この一週間、シンガポール局からスウェーデン人の副社長が来日しており私たちの六本木社に勤務しているブルガリア人の役員と二人なので通訳は二人いた方がいいでしょうってことで私も彼女と二人。安心安心。
人生でなかなかお近づきになれない皇族家の方、伏見殿下はユーモアたっぷりでポジティブショックを受けました。
やー、もっともっと色んな話を聞きたかった。
伏見殿下の写真や楽しい雰囲気の写真もたくさんあるのですが残念ながらここでは載せてはいけませんのでごめんなさい。
殿下がお帰りになるということで9時頃にはお開きになったのですが、予感的中、カラオケです。VIPルーム。
私は早く帰りたかった(2時間もかかるので)んですが、社長に「ホテル取るから泊まっていきなよ」ってなり残りました。
下着も化粧品類もなーーーんにも持ってなかったので、夜中のドンキへ。もらった出張手当からいろいろ払って、足りなくて赤字っていうオチ。トホホ。。
まぁ、一回くらいいいかということで自分の中で割り切りました。次回からは終電で帰らせてもらいます。
今週も瞬く間に過ぎていきました。ほんと、一瞬うたた寝したみたいな感覚で気づくとまた週末。

みなさん、ステキな週末を過ごしてくださいね。
