I love to wear Kimono! 🙂
99% of the time I’m wearing western cloths and speaking in English. That’s cool but, when I wear kimono, it brings my back to my roots, Japan. It make me feels proud and a little emotional and happy that this is who I am.
Playing piano and singing is physically challenging. It’ harder than it looks or people could imagine. During my contract on board, my appetite was double than while on vacation.
Therefore, instead using the elevator, in 18-story building ship I used the stairs all the time in order to keep fit!
I always look forward to our next port of call. It’s puts a BIG smile on my face as I will soon get explore another new land and it’s people.
I’m like a kid, it’s sooooooo difficult to control my excitement. 🙂
My first big gig overseas was at the Singapore Hilton hotel in 2001 the same year when the world trade center was hit by terrorism.

My first day aboard in 2014 on the Sun Princess in Kobe.
I was a little nervous so I thought a big meal might help 🙂
Anyways after enjoining my late lunch on the upper deck I was lucky to enjoy a beautiful sunset. I took this as a good sign and thought everything is going to be great!
