"How was your day?" That can be one of the more interesting questions to ask us. It really depends on the day. One thing is for sure, there's always something going on with us. In between having fun, we fit in "work" from time to time. Rent is due, after all.
After a three year process, my dad was happy to see his original CD finally make it to production. Thanks to the tireless and dedicated work of Derek Nakamoto, songs that dad wrote years ago can be shared.
Here's my happy pappy, showing off his latest work. "Beautiful Days" is available on cd baby and itunes. Of course if you want one the good old fashioned way, you can always contact us.
Our sign now proudly graces our showroom as vandals decided to take it down. They actually saved us some work, cause it was pretty high up the signpost. "Thanks....?" I guess....
Got a visit from internet music sensation, Gabe Bondoc. He was in town, vacationing with his family. I'm so jealous. Even in Hawaii, I wouldn't mind a vacation and Hawaii is one of the best places to do it!
Then our buddy Wedge Lee and the Nissei Week Foundation of Los Angeles made their second trip to us in two years. Some ladies needed to head home, but the court Queen and 3 of the princesses made it down to our place.
While it's only 2 years in a row, we can start a tradition, right? Our own JC kindly volunteered to be "da man", striking a pose with these lovely ladies. He's been our poster boy for 2 years running. Does that count as a tradition?
After Star Advertiser went subscription based, I wasn't sure who or how many people read my posts. Lately, I've been finding that people do, and I'm happy to hear that. Today's entry isn't earth shaking, just a glimpse into some of our days here. Glad to share them with you all and hope you'll stick around for more.
