I took a few days unpaid leave and added it to golden week so I a long vacation in Taiwan. this first week I spent loafing with Aimee. I did nothing much; watched movies and DVDs, ate lots of food and visited a few friends. A week later Amy and Eri joined me. I met them at Chiang Kai Shek Airport. We took a bus to Taipei and found a cheap but comfortable hotel. I took them to a night market and we tried some interesting dishes. I bought a durian, it was a bit expensive, Amy didn't enjoy it and Eri thought it was okay.

Birthday Party

I turned 42 in April. People in Japan have treated me well and often given me gifts or helped me in some way so I decided to throw a party for them. Actually it's the first party I have ever arranged so I was not sure how it would turn out.
