Hajimete. This is a Japanese word that translates to “for the first time” in English. The past two months have been all about Hajimete for me.
This blog post has been long overdue, and I must apologize for this as truthfully, I have barely felt the two months go by. Starting with the kOis & pOnds Cup / 2012 Philippine Koi Show, to my sudden return to the Phililppines, to the new friends I have made while I was there, and finally now to my ongoing trip to Japan. Yes, at the moment, I am currently in Japan, and I am so excited and privileged to be here.
Today concluded the first day of the Sakai Fish Farm Auction, and I must say it is quite an experience. Unfortunately, Devin was feeling very ill tonight, so we had to retire early, but this has given me an opportunity to write in my blog, so I immediately grabbed it!
While it is not my first time at Sakai Fish Farm, it is my first time to come here in the Spring, and there is no better time than auction time to come. I have taken some photos, but perhaps Iwas too busy taking in all the events and activities, that I forgot to take more!
All the other events that have precluded this one are no less important than the current events, but I feel they deserve more than just a part of a blog post, so I will further detail the Manila Events in a separate post. For now, I want to chronicle this 15 day trip around the farms of Japan. I look forward very much to sharing this trip with everyone!
