March 5

What does one say or anniversary, it is the day of the (meat) 29. Was started by three Meat Eaters along, so they did not do a year ago, the event say eat meat every month on the 29th, anniversary of one this time.

The first had only been a fool around, so some people who participated had to fool little by little also increasing volunteer participants whopping 19 people this time! ! ! W was forced to the point of another 10 people to 29 people. This event is also transmitted to Japan and South Korea, as well as Canada.

Initially's favorite The Keg I was supposed to go to, given the situation in the Kitsilano bosom of everyone including yourself The Tatlows I chose a shop called. (Keg Steakhouse but not as high as I tried to find a cheaper place this time)

The Tatlows (with potatoes and vegetables) and reasonable price of steak is $ 15-25. Recommended cheap as $ 3-4 a cup if you choose from the specials of the day and drink that many.

I've found this shop on the Internet, in the first apartment I lived in when I came to Canada, next to this shop roommate Andrew at that time was working as a waiter at the store at the time this happens to be. It is a shop with memories that there was much to feast at this store a beer in their roommate once.

Well, I guess rather than go where the day 29 of the month now. I become the talk June is a Sunday, it will be even BBQ on the beach. Set aside an appointment, please who can join!

Eat lunch, to English Bay in a single T-shirt weather was so good. I walked to Stanley Park under cover of the people who walk along the sea.

While walking in the park, me and smile and everyone Niko~tsu eyes meet with people who disagree. I guess practice to smile eyes met this person's favorite place in Canada. It is said that it is upbringing as a child to do so. Smile Smile is to chain, makes me feel happy just by walking.

Eventually, over a period of 2 hours round I have already (10km approx.) Stanley Park. In a single T-shirt, but I felt a little chilly in the shade or air temperature is lower still say fine, I felt good after a long time and a lot of walking.

November 4

Yesterday morning, I woke up by a phone call from Eric the agent. (Bakka always happening on the phone ...)

Was the result of the interview in cases of investment funds. Unfortunately, the result is rejected · · ·. It was not clear why they need more than what the company's side and I did not match, but it did not hear much about in another way I do not have yet sleepy at 9 in the morning.

Sorry I think it was just a company that has been watered only investment funds, then there is also the first year 4 weeks paid vacation, and Lucky you were able to work here ... really.

However, I thought it would be a company like me saying I want to test one hour after getting on the phone at 9:00 in the morning without considering the convenience here, and also be from being brandished busy quite joined if. Since coming to Canada and want to live peacefully, it maybe was not the best job opportunities for me. Please keep this w as acting tough Well let's say.

I have met with the agent of another company today. Is the agent of (Nisei) Japanese Mr George. Because it seems to be easier than through the agent applied to companies directly on their own, for a while, I'll try to attack in that way.

September 4

Actually I'm (Did Te losing place $ 500 maybe) you have not win straight in poker still coming to Canada last month, the day before yesterday yesterday today (+ $ 230) (+ $ 255) (+ $ 375) I have three straight wins and then.

Moreover, even though there were many recently that the Buy-in with $ 200, I can win this $ 100 buy-in only three days. Reaffirmed his play in the state (less tip) short stack and I wonder that too opposite. Maybe it would not work well at the mental and cowardly because it's a big amount. (But we will if we win a big amount at $ 100 start, then it is considered that, even if it was originally $ 100)

Recently, this kind of lucky I'm glad a good thing a little too much in private because it does not have to occur. I wonder if the work is determined after · · ·. (Example company currently waiting for reply)

After going to a friend's house to play in Mexican casino poker at finishing around 7:00, I was treated to (Enchilada) dinner, today I was doing w poker there eventually also. His sons poker'm still just getting started, I am someone could become a new poker buddies, so like I like already.

May 4

This morning I woke up at 9:00 on the phone.

Eric from the agent, the British-based fund that was interviewed on Wednesday and will want to test the programming to me. Ten o'clock at night from 10:00 or so I say? That at 10 and after 1 hour from now and hear. Mean that it is suddenly brother?

Technical personnel of the interview seems to have gone on a business trip from tomorrow apparently, he seems to have no time today only. Once I made it late afternoon start because there is a time difference of 4 hours and Bermuda and Vancouver. This is why I say it is not that you can not even after one hour from now online and can be tested.

Well, yeah ... There 's looks.

I decided to try my best because I thought the road to adoption will become close まぁ If you work here.

One hour later, I received a question via Skype from Bermuda.

[Problem]
Create a program that simulates a tennis tournament.
(Number of players 2-64 people), to create a table in a random tournament after entering the player's name.
Outputs the result of the game by simulating the game according to the rules of tennis (tennis rules, see Wikipedia).
Proceed to the second round in the first round was over, finally decide the winner.
(A variety of other conditions)
The time limit is 2 hours

· · ·
· · ·
· · ·

What you w 2 hours

Using a language called C # in oysters straight skinny in an editor like Notepad, poor performance, because it has not been installed such thing as development environment (purchased in 60 000 in Yodobashi when you are in Japan) laptop that has now I've created a program.

I feel like I concentrated adrenaline at full throttle for the first time in many years I will. Create somehow still three hours over one hour. 1 hour technical talk about on the phone then test. What sort of rating this be expected? ? ?

This is likely the result of feeling out in the next week or probably both good and bad. Naa decided soon because I want whichever gotta hit another instead.

April 4

Wednesday at 9:00 yesterday morning, I've been interviewed by the British-based fund company in the example.

The immediate vicinity of the Metrotown I would look it up in Google Maps address because it was made 4714 Kingsway, in Burnaby. I was able to stop in the parking lot of Metrotown 15 minutes before the fly car. The desired location on the 27th floor of the building.

Cervine! Building on the 27th floor, let alone there in that neighborhood is not found even on the 10th floor in just about building a small two-story building. Did you address ー wrong? ? ? I do not have the option of SUBSCRIBE mobile Web access, and there is no time for that It does not have a place I can be close to the net.

Leave a message and I will call you back as well call me an agent Eric hurry, because I had become a voice mail.

Already five minutes before I noticed it. Without any contact from Eric. The building was attached to the eye is suddenly on the other side of Metrotown. This is huge. Place on the 27th floor is likely. I did and I think that should not be a Kingsway address because the other side, I've done because I do not see any other large buildings.

Was bingo.

Five minutes behind the appointed time to the 27th floor of the building (it was on the top floor). Interview the person in charge will start coming soon is guided her sister's reception room.

I was British I thought that maybe the person in charge. I never get tired enough to be interviewed (by telephone meeting half too) in British English than three hours of crunching. Although it has been found familiar, at first I was listen again and again.

I think apart from the language problem Well, good luck was in contents. I would like to hope that would have interested me even beyond us two great people, because he spent nearly three hours for me for one of my people.

Is said that after reviewing in-house, and secondary contact of the interview might go, interview ended safely hard to shake.

Go home, I was taking a nap for three hours or were tired.

March 4

Departed Vancouver on Monday morning market, I went to see two of my former colleagues and the opening game of the Seattle Mariners Texas Rangers VS. People who are flexible they can be expected to have only my former colleague, resting briefly on Monday.

Along the way, I was going to shop around for 2 hours at Premium Outlet, would have to wait an hour there and crowded for some reason at the border, because it can not be used to buy only about one hour, after all, two sets sneakers and two jeans I can not buy sheets only about 2 T shirt jeans and I wanted at least one.

Way to the Safco Field (Mariners stadium) is also crowded 激 Seattle. Become just before the start of the match, also full everywhere looking for parking. Stadium in a rush to stop the parking of $ 40 eventually. Even though it usually requires only $ 10 to $ 15 $ 40 • • • I mean me.

Watching the game while enjoying the (beer) Fry garlic and Camper classic Arras. 2-2 in head-to-head, original Fu Sheng Rakuten pitcher mound as the Rangers third place position six times indeed. Since we did not think his pitching surely able to see, I had a little cheer enemy team said, I will self-destruct in three runs walks and wild pitches. I did not get the result that only one out knockout only. The first in the rookie pitched Naa scene was a little harsh. I would regret it had been expected that much ---.

3-point becomes the final point eventually win the game 5-2 Mariners! Ichiro and Johjima is batting also contributed to the victory in defense dud.

By the way, the Seattle show was originally scheduled to go on car rental, car Accord you've done in my 19-year-old after all. We have no problem running me out I tried to # 140 kilometers. However, the way, how was fine but I would say ... Gari~tsu rides on the curb.
