Guess What

The bento shop that I have been working at is going to close on January 15th. What an exciting news to hear right before Christmas.

To be perfectly honest, we (employees) all knew that this was coming. We just didn't know exactly when. And that was why I was reluctant to start "Bento shop chronicle" series on this blog (though I had promised to do so), because it would have been too short and depressive... like, "I started working at a bento shop. I drew hundreds of bento illustrations to memorize how to pack different bentos. And the shop closed." That's it. What a joke.

Oh well. Let's hope that 2008 brings a better luck.

BTW, see the above photo? My Christmas tree is almost done. ;)

You and I need to have a sake to welcome 2008, I think. Here's to this year's demise: may it meet with a horrible end, as is fitting! :)

Sorry about your bento job. But I think you've worked too hard and I hope you'll find a better job next year. I've also been busy with a new addition in our family. He is a 6 months old German Shepherd. Such a cutie! Will sent you photos soon. Happy holidays! Looking forward for your Christmas tree!

TT^TT... Well, at least you are now an EXPERT on bentos!! Does that count as "home-studying for a better future"? Hehe. ^^".
Merry Christmas, and I wish you health, hope, and happiness!

Thank you, guys. (Sorry about not responding individually.)
Looks like I'm going to have to face another challenge, but I WILL SURVIVE! ;) Yeah, I believe that things are looking up, though slowly.
