#12- Love power from Rena Inoue & John Baldwin…that’s hot!

I am working on the documentary TV program (This documentary program it's called “Fukkatsu no hi” which means “the day of the comeback”. We are introducing a person who has a successful and happy life after suffering. It's a new TV program for this fall in Japan) with TBS TV (Tokyo Broadcasting System Television) in this month. Monday the 17th is the last shooting day for this segment.

We picked Ms. Rena Inoue and Mr. John Baldwin who are figure Skaters for our segment (the 26th on air in Japan) and we are filming them since this Monday the 10th.

As a single woman myself…I love my life & myself and I am enjoying my single life like a “Sex and the City”…but, now…I have changed my mind! Rena and John are a soooooooo sweet couple and I feel like…“I am ready to marry!!!” with someone like John who is a sweet and nice guy! Rena is a lucky girl (Of course, John is a lucky boy too).

They skate like a single skater… that’s love!!! Such a nice feeling to see & feel “The one love, real love”…Oh…such a nice feeling!

By the way, when we are filming Rena & John the other day at the Paramount Iceland, I met the figure Skater, Ms. Sasha Cohen and the coach (for Rena & John), Mr. Phillip Mills.

***

Me: Wow, that girl is so great! I love her dance and skate!

Phillip: That’s Sasha. I know she is great!

Me: What’s? You mean Sasha Cohen?

Phillip: Yeah.

***

I enjoyed Rena & John’s performance (they were training) and Sasha’s performance (she was practicing).

And…When Sasha was going to leave… I just said hello to her.

***

Me: Hi Sasha! I love your skate and your passion! I enjoyed your skate!!!

Sasha: Oh, thank you! I am going to Japan in January.

Me: Really? I live here, but I am a freelance writer, so if you need some support for Japanese media or Japanese market, let me know, I will help you! (I gave my business card to her.)  Have fun and good luck in Japan!!!

Sasha: Ok! Thank you!

Me: Have a great trip to Japan!!!

***

Rena and John’s coach, Phillip is very friendly and a positive person. He always said to Rena and John, “bravo”!!! And he clapped!!! (Of course Rena and John are great!!! That’s why Phillip clapped, but Phillip is so sweet and funny!)

***

Phillip: Sasha is nice hun!

Me: Today, I am so lucky that I am watching two TV channels at the same time, Rena & John’s channel and Sasha’s channel!

Phillip: Ha ha ha!!!

Me: Wow, Rena and John are great skaters!!!

Phillip: Yes, they are wonderful!!!

***

We (TBS TV) are following Rena and John’s daily life for a couple of days…their home, skate rink, etc…so much fun!!!

I love to meet happy people and introduce their lives to people in the world, yes this is my job and I love doing it for people!

I am so happy to share my happy feelings and happy stories with people.

Have a happy life to all!!!

Love + Love + Love,
Yoko

#271-Why people fight?

Why do human beings keep fighting with each other or fighting wars?

About profit?

About territory?

About religion?

About ethnicity?

About statism?

About collectivism?



Why can’t we talk instead of fight (war)?

People are trying to change others…

People don’t want to change for others…

People think “I am right, you are wrong”…



I was thinking about “how can we resolve issues of terrorism and war in this world, can we talk instead of fighting?”



And then I realized “I need to think about my issue first” (since I moved into my apartment in Montrose one year ago)… yes, I have an issue about my living situation… my upstairs neighbor (64 years old woman who is not working) has been waking me up every night (around 11:15pm, 12:15am and 1:15am) with loud squeezing footsteps (it sounds not normal & regular footsteps) for one year… I had to call police twice, and I fought with this neighbor twice…



I tried to go to bed at the same time when this neighbor goes to bed… it doesn’t work (for me late night ene…

Title of this column: From L.A. “Slut?”
(http://www.senken.co.jp/report/downtown-la-eggslut/)

Since a few years ago, I have been noticing the egg shape sign of “eggslut” (http://www.eggslut.com) on the way to L.A. fashion district in downtown Los Angeles.

“Slut” means in Japanese “bimbo”, “whore”, “hooker” and “slut”.
“eggslut (a woman is sleeping around with eggs)”? This shocking name of the restaurant has been bringing curiosity to me.

This restaurant (“eggslut”) has a counter at the “Grand Central Market” which is also famous as a tourist popular spot, and when I drive by this place my curiosity about this place is getting bigger and bigger, because I always see a long line in front of…

#273- My last email to an upstairs neighbor

After I watched abc TV 20/20 CATFISH episode (Hooking a Catfish) “How this Canadian woman catfished an NBA star and an aspiring model, almost ruining their lives” (http://abcnews.go.com/US/canadian-woman-catfished-nba-star-aspiring-model-ruining/story?id=46778331) , I totally understood about how my upstairs neighbor (woman) is thinking…
These sick women are boring about their lives and they want to make other people miserable like them.
As I wrote my blog post on April 19, 2017, I’m having a trouble with an upstairs neighbor… I was very angry but lately I feel sorry for her… she is a lonely woman (she only goes out two hours per week for grocery shopping, she doesn’t have any visitors, she is similar to that Canadian woman) and she wants someone’s attention to make her life excite and fun (in this case “evil fun”)…

For me no matter what, I’m always happy… I appreciate my life…

















Today after I saw this upstairs woman was walking around my home and peeking my home (where I sit or what am I …
