|I hope Daisuke won't find this !|
Comfortably seated in a comfy sofa, we could enjoy a cozy atmosphere and delicious Italian food. For dessert, it was obviously a surprise cake (too bad I hate tiramisu but Daisuke was happy to eat mine) !
If 27 years was quite a choc to me, I fear my 28 with more serenity even if the number 30 makes me very afraid. I start to tell me that I 'm closer to 30 than 20, and one day I will have to stop myself doing some things. At least I gave up my dream to become a member of an idol group again.
But I can not help it, since I arrived in Japan I am so happy that I want to take the opportunity to do lots of things I could never do in France . For example...

I spoke a few months ago of an agency that had contacted me for a project: they wanted me as a reporter for the C Channel website. If it seemed rather a good thing, the launch party was so terrible for me that I canceled without even having posted a single video. No regrets but just, what is unfortunate, is that the casting of the only TV show I dream to do "Hello! Fukuoka-ken" (a very short show where foreign people present Fukuoka) is managed by the agency. Cancelling my participation in C Channel surely made me blacklisted. By cons, through my work, I had the chance to meet the person in charge of this program one the prefecture side. I will see that side and hope it would work.
So there is the Kyushu Article Contest 2015 one. This is a contest open to any non-Japanese who has lived and / or traveled in Kyushu. We must share the Kyushu island charms through a blog article to expect to win prizes like vouchers for hotels or transportation pass.
I intend to write my article in November, I already have a very clear idea of what I want to talk about. I 'm lucky that our client don't know my name or I think I would be disqualified.. Hey it is not as if I worked for the company that organizes the contest but since I designed the website...
Well, I hope that many will apply.
The second one is my biggest project : the design of the Kyushu Tourism Promotion Organisation website. It was not very hard to do better than the thing they had before but I'm happy with the result and I particulary like the slidder with the map. For now, just a small part of the content is online, the rest will come between December and March. Thank you for your remarks about the slow loading images, I told developers and it will be ok for December.
The third andthe last project this month is the Yagama Lantern Promotion society website.a Yamaga (山鹿) is a town in the neighboring Kumamoto Prefecture. While designing, I not only discovered a new place but also a part of the Kumamoto culture which I didn't know. It was nice to design and again, I 'm happy with the resutl. I don't know if an English version will be made one day but in the meantime I will try to present you this little town, in January or February, when I will go for a festival

Last Sunday, I met my best Japanese friend, Mana, which lives in Tokyo. We are friends for 10 years and the last time we met was 2 years ago. After I picked up her at the Fukuoka airport, we went to eat one of the typical dishes of Fukuoka : tonkotsu ramen, at Shin Shin, one of the best ramen-ya of the city... where I didn't went yet. When the weather cools down, yummy ramen are always good . It encouraged me to go eating some by myself at lunch even if a single woman usually don't do that. Well I am a forigner so I will pretend that I didn't know.
Once finished our meal, we went on the Nokonoshima island (能古島) to see the cosmos fields at Nokonoshima Island Park. Despite an impressive crowd in the boat and the bus, the park was large enough to not be on top of each other . Cosmos is always a nice thing to see and this time it was perfect. Late bloomers cosmos were in full bloom and few normal ones still remained. I love the pink, green and blue view.
