No picnic to handle it, yes, I really wanted to skirt around the topic if I could..

But after 2 weeks have passed since that tragedy occurred, I thought I needed to scrutinize it more objectively.
Thereafter I'll take the plunge to mention it !

2 weeks ago, which was in the evening on Jan 16 in our time (= in the morning on the same day in local time), the news reported that many of foreigners including our citizens (Japanese people) were incarcerated by the Armed Islamic Group. 

According to the source, it began on 16 January 2013, al-Qaeda-linked terrorists under the command of Mokhtar Belmokhtar took over 800 people hostage at the Tigantourine gas facility near In AménasAlgeria.

After four days, the Algerian special forces raided the site, in an effort to free the hostages.
At least 39 foreign hostages were killed along with an Algerian security guard, as were 29 militants.

We were very unfortunate to know in a few days that 10 dead bodies of our compatriots were found at the hospital, which was announced by our government shortly after that.

We could not help crying over and over and over, as the truth came into light.

We of course condemn the terrorism, it’s definitely unforgivable act. 

Besides what they (Terrorists) have done to all our friends is nothing but execution, no doubt ! 

Must it not be justified for the world!

To put it more specific, we must fight against terrorism not by waging war (=retaliating act), but by holding perpetual talks with them…

Hope All Leaders of the Nations that it may concern (I hear there are totally 8 countries concerned) must keep presence of their mind. 

You must not get on the provocation of the terrorist, namely, Japan, The United States...and all countries that have unfortunately lost their citizens during this period of times under the name of pathetic barbarism !

All Leaders of nations to whom it may concern,

Please don’t quarrel with your own flesh and blood !

We have already learned in the past war how the bloodshed is cruel, where our SDF were also dispatched at the scene, namely the Iraq War or War in Afghanistan, where foreign soldiers as well as local citizens were succumbed to death up to the present, as you know.

When the theme is considered as a domestic issue, the following law has to be revised;

So called Man-Power Dispatching Business Law in our nation killed one innocent 44 years old  man, I believe !

It is deeply related to our employment issue, thereafter he had to look for his job not in Japan, but outside the country. We do remember he had to say it to his family before heading for Algeria !

But then again, why the bereaved family had to be fired away by the media so persistently ???

Shame on inconsiderate newspapers and magazines even though it’s for the sake of your work ! 
You don’t have right to disclose everything of their own, do you ???

We also have right not to know everything that we don't want to know, for instance, what had happened thoroughly to him and his own family !! 

You (=Japanese Media) have got to be more discreet all the time !!! 

Please don’t take further steps to it, anymore !

And in my last word to conclude the issue,

I would deeply express my condolences to all people around the world who had unfortunately lost their lives due to violence.

I’m very sorry,
RIP to all casualties,

Dear daddy! - sequel

Dear my dad,

15 months passed since I have mentioned you here on my blogger, dad !

As I reported you yesterday, mom looked so happy last time I met her on Jan 2 ^^ 

She told me she feels happy whenever I see her, and I am reassured that nothing was in vain during my visit to her hospital, or at least I realized that I have made her happy in anyhow..

I owe it to you that I was able to surmount everything I am involved over the last couple of years, and I still said in your will in Oct 24, 2004, which was,

Quit playing around (in original; MAJIME NI YAREYO=まじめにやれよ)

At that time, I still was greenhorn, and I must admit I could only grasp your words on the face value!!

Maybe, I was only scratching the surface of your last word you had left me before you were in critical condition..

Already more than 8 years passed since God had rest your soul dad, time flies !

Now that I understand what you've meant by MAJIME NI YAREYO.. 

It is not because of I got order, but because of I have got to face the music including mom's issue..

And I do know dad, you're always watching us (me and mom) from the heaven; 

I really was prodigal son when you were alive !
I have caused you millions of troubles..I'm very sorry, dad !

By way of apology, I will make it up for my mom (your wife) as much as I can..

And I'll never be succumbed to temptation or whatever..
I'll try my utmost especially at work..

Yes, you raised me up, Dad ! 
I thank you so much for your watching us as always !!!


Your son,

May always be Happy, be Positive & be Challenging !

Dear all viewers,

A Happy New Year !
2013 has begun !

To digest last year, it was very bountiful to me !

I think the most fruitful time I have ever's not exaggerated at all.

A Founder and the current Chairman of H.I.S Hideo Sawada shows us in his book that we must always challenge to seize our chance no matter how hardship overwhelms upon us, even weaken our willpower.

He also tells us in the story that you can surmount everything as long as you are always willing to overcome..!!

Indeed, I experienced many things last year, I encountered good times and bad times one another. 

What I could surely say is; 

I enjoyed 2012 to full extent ! 
It was really wonderful to me !

But I wouldn't look back no matter how it was and; 

Here's my pledge right in front of viewers and bloggers around the world as well as Facebook friends that I'll be happier than 2012 ! 

I'll be more positive, more constructive and more imaginative..I'll jump up !!

I will always challenge and change my life as an employee of the Group Enterprises of Mr.Sawada's. 

So Let's be more Positive and challenging as to become happier in 2013, shall we???

As a proverb goes;


Stay healthy, be happy, be prosperious, always be challenging, my friends!

Do enjoy your 2013 !

There were actually several site proposed for my journey this time !

You may shock to know after reading it, be honest, the destination for my journey which was first on my mind was Palau! 

I still remember it was the early September when I made a phone-call to my travel agent H.I.S for the first time in 3 months ! (after I traveled South Korea during Jun 11- Jun 16) 
I asked my person in charge of HIS on how Palau sounds like for my expecting journey..

However her answer was there's only 1 hotel available...
Furthermore, the Hotel's fee far exceeded my budget...What made me totally upset was the flight schedule (departing Narita Tokyo nearly 12 midnight & returning back there at around 5 in the morning in our time)...that did make no sense to me. 

In fact, it sounded to me really tight, what was worse, the estimate being sent to my email account from my travel agent was too expensive to carry on. 

Hence I had to change the destination despite the landscape of Palau sounded to me such tremendously beautiful & has caught my eyes an awful lot !! 
After having dreamed of staying in Palau during my holidays was up in the air, my next proposed sight was Vietnam..
According to my travel guide book 海外旅行の最新情報 地球の歩き方 , Vietnam has a lot ! 

There are actually so many beautiful places that draws me as well, and many spots are designated as the world heritage nationwide, indeed. 

Yet my decision was somehow wavering, and it went on & on & on..
After wading through a lot of info about this country, I concluded not to visit this time, either !

Still, I was sticking to beach resort such as Ko Samui in Thailand or wherever, and Langkawi was also count in..

Nevertheless, my second thought turned my eyes more onto familiar place than unfamiliar one, and to me, it was nothing but Kuala Lumpur !

The first time I visited there was on Jun 20 in 2001, when I was 36 year old..
I was tougher than present, also was rough and tumble ! 
Nowadays I take precedence over safety than adventure as I turned 48 year old.. 

 So when I've found Kuala Lumpur International Airport was really huge for the first time on last Monday the 12th, I felt a little bit disoriented !!

What I've found is, believe it not, this kind of ambiguity always makes my journey more bountiful and fruitful as always be ^^

And what made me feel more inclined to visit there at this time is..
Well, it goes without saying that I really wanted to see Facebook sisters face to face, yes, that's true ^^

Above all, what made my journey most comfortable and pleasant was nothing but their tenderness, caring, truthfulness, thoughtfulness..everything was exactly the same as I've imagined before we met each other!! 

And they decorated my 48th Birthday so amazingly !

If it were not for their great assistance, I'm sure I wouldn't have accomplished my journey in such safely & comfortably ! 
Yes, that's true !

Finally we ended up in Malacca where I really wanted to visit ever since I have watched the footage of it on TV, which was as far back as July 2 in 2010..^^

Also I could safely travel Taipei before going back to Tokyo ^^

Taipei was also amazing !
The thing is the traffic jam as well as I was really caught in KL, which was on my way to Chinatown..

As a matter of course, everything is
forgivable as long as I could safely return back to Tokyo !!

As a token of my gratitude for your welcoming when I was there, I really wanted to update here on my blogger ASAP..It took me nearly a week though anyway, I've finished it all ^^ 

Thank you, Terima Kasih Banyak & ありがとう ^^
