I'm gonna check their product giveaways, Chi ー only grass. I thought, pretty comfortable I get home and try it. It's a product originally but for music player mobile phone, it can be used even if you use a USB adapter that came with your PC. If there is it, or eat in the living room while playing music in the PC in the bedroom even without the audio system at home, drinking beer on the balcony, or you can be in the kitchen washing dishes, for example. I would also be able to move fast forward, rewind songs, Guaranteed! (Confirmed by iTunes and Windows Media Player)

I'm listening to the new album now, "DIG OUT YOUR SOUL" way of OASIS. I heard last night got so much today. Concert of this before it is an album that song played on is turned on.

Bluetooth products similar, there is a feature microphone lucky guy in smaller type to give to one ear. Bluetooth version of the headset, such as used in voice chat, such as Skype and MSN. I will be very easy to not only away from the PC with Bluetooth and Skype have this, and to mobile phone while driving a car. Since Na is dangerous to drive in one hand phone.

This morning, I was surprised to see the finance page of Yahoo!. Canadian dollar was 100 yen until last week was made to 88 yen. But I have cut 100 yen US dollars.

Since it was trend appreciation of the yen from a little before, the money had to be earned in Canada a little extensive use credit cards in Japan (faded old), the overseas remittance this time because I fell big indeed I was changed to Canadian dollars of the money of account of Japan to Shinsei Bank. Only part to reduce the risk of falling more.

By the way, I tried to down $ 500 over here with the world of Shinsei Bank cash card out of interest. Rate of about 89 yen after that, if you look at the amount drawn on the online banking was about ¥ 47 500 (about 95 yen exchange rate =). That is no good at all. When traveling abroad, such as better credit card rate it is advantageous.

Well, you will be asked for the most efficient way to send money overseas to people in Japan. Deposit to open an account there in the foreign exchange money market dealer named Central (※), the best way is to remit foreign currency accounts, such as Citibank "AS exchange it" to buy the currency of purpose as far as I know I will send money to overseas bank accounts from there. (There are many places that can not be left out of foreign currency remittance and foreign exchange trader's other ※)

Save money at all to remit a large amount of foreign exchange commission overwhelmingly so cheap compared with Tanshi central bank is a foreign exchange trader. (However, to actually trade forex trader wonder if other more subtle because it is higher)

I guess not in the yen or 70 yen level also, as it is followed. (I wonder whether to buy a house in the city of Vancouver is now I mean ...) Na wish I bought at home to send money quickly over here And then all the savings of Japan.

I feel that around the world becomes more and more distant and say that I have ... but I will. What was it that you mention it in this blog is a blog?

The last article I wrote not quit my job and be in, the problem was solved.

But there sometimes is that you must do a job I hate, I think would be the same environment as much or more to work under this manager did not pass my opinions if we think of things, it is more I quit I were it eventually I tried to take the plunge and opinion prepared to be fired I can do it better.

Manager in the room, I was engaged in a heated debate about 30 minutes by two people, feeling the gaze like a worried look and sympathy of his colleagues from the outside. (Give me show it to me to try to make it easy to think what you think, you are right), "OK, mock up what you think is right and show me." Word of the Manager and

Us, this is your chance! I think so, I wrote to concentrate fired up for the first time in many years the system configuration diagram and environmental specifications.

At the end of the description to show the document to the manager, he also said. "I'm not always right, so someone like you who can say no to me is very important. Thank you for giving me a better idea." (I'm not always right, because, like you and me No someone to say Thank you. important ideas. very good)

So, I was going to leave me all aspects of the development of this project. Since the critical systems that will be used from the Nokia headquarters in Finland as well as Canada, but not in large projects Never, it is amazing opportunity. I will also be their own experience rather than Access Manager was saying at the beginning, so I decided to use the latest technology called. Net Framework 3.5. I was able to gain the trust of manager, ー say that I was good too.

4 months have passed since I started trying to work at Nokia, there are events that reduce the motivation of the work at once to come here.

The cause of the manager Patricia again.

She's not a software developer, it is not a people who have some knowledge on his own, make a kind of mock data if the application in MS-ACCESS. In, I mean that I thought she would have the knowledge of software development. That was like that even before the boss of the company ... Come to think of it.

In, but I started that I will be responsible for projects in this time, Patricia is said to me.

"This system is intended to give me. I do not know. Do not make it made in MS-ACCESS"

What? Maybe it is not reasonable for this made in ACCESS? But I was not going to do it at all I would have been hired in ACCESS as Web Developer and I in the first place? ? ? Honestly I do not want to do ... I've done it 10 years ago last ACCESS.

I remember a couple of tips to make contact with a colleague Patricia gave me frequently when I went into the Nokia here.

(Do not say No) "Never say no to her"
(Do not propose anything) "Never suggest anything"

Given that thousands of people gave me this same advice, follow to keep it so I'm Ken. But I wish more painful to work with this person, and much of it will do the job I do not want to do. I feel like I know the reason why people went predecessor quit I will.

On August 27, I've been watching a concert at GM Place oasis of Vancouver.

Live view of the oasis was the first time in years since the Yokohama Arena, probably around 2000. I had bought a ticket even when it came to Vancouver in September of 2005, who were going to watch together will not come to Canada, I will not go I also there are many other, to friends I sold.

(Actually two glasses) I was doing a beer with my friends to go to live together in a nearby shop called Shark Club venue before the concert at 7:00. Becomes about 30 minutes before curtain, only oasis is now flowing at high volume than usual, I feel I've been excited all at once.

Oasis Concert at GM Place, Vancouver
The state of GM Place before the show. GM Place Stadium is the home of the Vancouver Canucks NHL (hockey). I've seen the inside of hockey, so I do not have the first time. I feel tiny, but I will when viewed from outside, I'm a person enters unexpectedly.

In that town where there are many kinds of people in multi-cultural, but Vancouver is quite a lot of people of color, most were Caucasian GM Place on this day that the concert of rock band. Nori is different from these people too. I was excited from the beginning to the end. Incidentally, puff away the grass and stately, two seat in front of the girl he had been expelled anyway around the smoke smell in our little weed. The three I'm afraid ... I smoked a joint lightly.

Oasis Concert at GM Place, Vancouver
Begins with the Fuckin 'in the Bushes, and continued Lyla, I was at once excited by new music. Prior album "Dig Out Your Soul" is to be released in the new nation on July 10, (I think) four songs on this day gave me a new song to play.

I think with any new song very good song, and might become to hear this also in many places was also Otonashika~tsu oasis for a while.

Noel Gallaghar Solo at Live in Vancouver GM Place
It is a solo narrative argument, "Don't Look Back in Anger" of Noel Gallagher.

Songs that were more than 10 years ago is still the best-selling music, the venue was very excited.

I have forgotten the camera is regrettable. This degree is a limit and a camera of Nokia Mobile (N95).

Na was a lot of fun. I would place three years after the kit also come to Vancouver then, I absolutely want to go at that time.

Has passed one month to begin work on the Nokia.

Was helping the work of (a place to set up and experiment a prototype of the latest mobile sent from headquarters Finland) lab in the basement because there is no work the first week manager is busy before the holidays, do. I was just that you do not know very well this work with hardware Moro I software is so specialized, the people there will me very well, I was able to a good friend of the in-house only people fun.

Week 2 was trained in the office of WEB development Burnaby. The cafeteria has many menu there is also a patio on the water Burnaby office is larger than Richmond office, there is also a park very good in the immediate vicinity, rather than come nobody went to 9:00 Moreover (less than 30 minutes working hours, 5:00 w), I was a very nice environment I have everyone back in front. While I think I want to work over here if you can, I went back to Richmond finished the training office.

3 weeks manager helped work in the lab because it was also on vacation. I was given the unglamorous work to do alone, I had fun doing the work while listening to your favorite music on the iPod.

I was able to finally start my own original work from the fourth week the manager is back from vacation. WEB development is able to complete without a problem from the beginning, so 7-8 years is doing now gets iterated once more in the hope it is feeling pretty lucky in the good graces of the manager notoriously tough. I think I will do my best to obtain a permanent position (full-time employees) after one year or six months after the contract expired in this vein.

Hey I think I'm fun to work for the first time in a long time. (Around 8:00 at the latest) to stress not you come over to many overtime overtime I hate is strange. W it but it might be easier after 10 minutes of me you will return home if the skip at 130-140km a まぁ Richmond Hwy. I'm kinda glad I also 150% overtime.

August 7

Today I learned a text message from a friend at work, the fact that it (because of the time difference with Japan -16) Tanabata.

I do not have bamboo leaf, think back to the house for about 30 minutes trying Kimeyo a wish, I decided.

July 7 last year, I was going to get married if you think that. There are a lot last year too, was also the most painful years of my life until now.

So, this is the wish of Tanabata, I decided "This year looks like the most fun year ever" to. Do not say the greed "or become more fun as I will go again next year even more the year after next," and.

I think there are things that I look back on my life, but sometimes I think those days was fun, I'd like to go back to that time, and do not want to think so. I guess that the most fun thing now, that happiness is surely it. I work toward it.
