I haven’t been posting much about my day to day for a while, thought I should give an update and post how a day on the #WorldsCoolestDay is like!
Riki, the GM for honestbee Japan pop by Niseko and we had a huge dinner with the family + karaoke. You can check out more of last night happenings on Andy’s blogpost.
Anyways, we ended the night at 4-5am? But it’s these crazy impromptu things that make life interesting. Look how we open the sunroof and had a pile of snow come it, genius haha
GOOD MORNING SNOW
We started the day bright and early at 8:30am setting up for shots with everyone having just a few hours of sleep! We were on roll for good weather, but today we had such grey skies and snow fall.
Next we went off to the gondola slopes for my second snowboard lesson with Go Snow, Glenn 🙂 This would be my third time snowboarding, and I think I got the hang of things, I can actually tell people now that I know how to snowboard. Thanks Glenn!
(Telling me what to do to link the turns)
But…. well, I still have really bad falls. Only two this time round, improvement(?) I guess! And I was looking so good till I fell.
By air when Cui Lin accidentally fired the wind tube at me. It was meant to blow the snow off. I now know why air benders can be offensive too.
Always chippy, they make coming to superhouse such a joy each day. I have seen them almost every single day this month thus far, and it’s such a blessing that they’re amicable, warm and so thoughtful.
(Look who joined us and ordered a feast while at it)
MY FALL BACK CAREER
Besides delivering, we have been going full on for promotions. No joke, it’s max volume here. The pamphlets got to be folded, the coupon code stapled and then inserted into the individual packing for the beanies and neck warmers, then packed into our yellow bags before they hit the streets. I think I have packed about 3000 of those to date. o.O I guess I know what my fall back career will be! LOL
DANCE BABY DANCE
Now hitting the streets is where it gets interesting. Bee-chan is such a hit and today I got to check one more thing off my bucket list. Being a dancing mascot 😛 HEHE. Being in in bee-chan I felt like a celebrity. Plus today is Australia day, so the streets were filled brim with people. “Good good” as Yuta always says.
MY CURRENT OBSESSION
This is my new favourite toy. It’s a window condensation collector! I’ve been collecting so much water, I think its possible to fill it to the top in just one day. But it is like clearing the fog, we can see the outside world, but most important the people that approach the pop up store.
(the water level is at my pinkie by the way)
FREE FOOD AND SAKE
What’s amazing in Niseko, is that activities never ends. I pop by the festival of Japan for sake tasting and free red bean rice cake with Taka. Watched a splendid Taiko performance too.
(Don’t mind my bare face – was quite a rush this morning)
But in the end, the day is that much special with the honest bee family. Miwa wrote my name Japanese “Dani-” on my cup. What will tomorrow bring?
