ARE SO COOL! Yesterday Abe-San, Nozomi and I went swimming. Then we ate banh canh (fresh grated noodles in an amazing fish broth) and then we went for SUSHI. Now, Iâ€™m on a â€œcleanseâ€ after my wild weekend so no coffee, beer, or SAKE for me. Once we got there, Abe-San saw some colleagues (Ryo and Aikawa) so we joined themâ€¦AND LET THE SAKE GAMES BEGIN! Fortunately for me, their English was great. (Abe doesnâ€™t speak it but can understand and read it.) Aikawa is an older gentleman whoâ€™s set up a Japanese school in Danang and works with one of his good friends, Ryo. They are sooooooo cute and they have the most smooth, attractively tanned faces, Iâ€™ve even seen. There must be something about the Asian skin that I hope to obtain. Maybe itâ€™s the SAKE!
Aikawa-san is like the sporty cool dad that I like. My dadâ€™s hyper active so Iâ€™m grateful already but a Japanese dad like this one
Â· Played ICE hockey and wants to go to an NHL game
Â· Golfs and wants to open a course in Danang and TEACH ME!
Â· Plays a Japanese instrument and is well-known in Danang for his singing
Â· Skis like this Canadian does
Â· Swims like a fish and SURFS!
Â· And did I mention that his English is AMAZING?
The only thing he doesnâ€™t do is rockclimb but Iâ€™ve definitely met my sporty match!
And he likes the Canadian English accent cuz itâ€™s easy to understand. Personally, it just must be me eh?
Abe-san is sooooooooooooooooooo nice and the more I hang out with him, the better it gets. Weâ€™re going running tomorrow. Heâ€™s so friendly, funny, has amazing VNese, and of course, meets the HOTTEST FACTOR 😉 But weâ€™re going to be JUST friends and that suits me JUST fine J
And b/c I grew up in Vancouver, I know some Japanese food vocabulary and that definitely helps our relationship J Yeah!
And so, SAKE on SATURDAY! Just two more days to go!
