#235- Santa Monica = 3S [Ron Robinson at Fred Segal] (@SENKEN-SHIMBUN /daily newspaper for fashion business)

My mother loves Santa Monica. So do I.

Santa Monica has everything. Beautiful beach and Stylish & Fun places.
Recently I am working for NHK TV (major Japanese TV company, similar to BBC or ABC TV) a lot, and they have a beautiful office in Santa Monica.
Yes, I love Santa Monica. Good for EAT, PLAY and WORK.
And I love Fred Segal. Fred Segal has everything. Beautiful things and Stylish & Fun stuff.
The other day, I visited Mr. Ron Robinson president of Fred Segal in Santa Monica and we had a great chat as usual.
