I feel like I'm in some sort of time tunnel. So much has been going on that I loose track of what day of the week it is. Just finished 6 days of filming for Culture Japan. When I got home yesterday it felt like a Friday but this morning I thought it was Sunday ^^;
As usual I'm late with this weeks A Week in Tokyo which covers what went on in the past few weeks. The first photo was taken yesterday at an international high school in Tokyo - we were there filming the Cultural Festivities which take place once a year - you've seen it in 2D anime like Haruhi and K-ON! and now you get to see it in 3D ^^;
This young lady is Arisa-chan who is one of my guides for the day. Being half Filipino and half Japanese, she joins the 40% of the school population as a Japanese mix, foreigner or a student who has spent a lot of time overseas. Will give you more info on international schools in Japan in a later post.
Just in case you was wondering - I didn't eat my only employee Chris ^^; Chris lives a few hours away from the office and it didn't make sense to ask him to come in every day. We worked out a workflow with some help of Skype and Google Docs to enable him to work remotely. Its been a few months since I seen him in the flesh ^^;
Ever since becoming a people manager at Amazon, its always been my priority to look after the interests of my staff and ensure that they are provided with a working environment to help them grow and one of the essential things that I need to do is set priorities and avoid overtime. I should to apply these rules to myself though ^^; But hey - I can rest as much as I like when I'm dead ^^;
