English, Español, Français, 日本語

“Plates for the table 3, ready!” “How man minutes for the table 5?” “Hurry up for the table 7!!”

Once, I worked as a kitchen chef and was really into it. I started from zero to having my own small dish in a Michelin star restaurant, and my kitchen experience became one of my life turning points.

Before becoming a chef, I had little knowledge and skills, and cooking was something beyond my reach just like any other skills about which you have no clue. After awhile, I was asked many times how I become a chef as if it was something very difficult. I felt like I was looking at myself before entering kitchen job. Cooking is such a mysterious area of work and attract us.

Although learning how to cook needs time and practice, it’s not rocket science, and you can learn quite a lot from zero, just like I did. And it deals not only with making delicious dishes, but also with organizing your way of thinking/doing, thus organizing life. In other words, cooking and life organizer are connected (juste like ), and I learned many valuable life skills from cooking experience, about which I would like to talk in this entry.

Organizer (2) ー How to minimize your travel luggage

English, Español, Français, 日本語

The world became smaller and smaller and travelling is more accesible and/or necesary than ever (e.g. while 100 years ago (1914) traveling from London to New York took 5-10 days, nowadays it takes no more than 8 hours (interesting comparative map)

In other words, there are many people who have to think about what to bring in their trip. Although so many things can stay at home (that’s why people tend to clutter), in terms of travelling, we have to make a decision on luggage items and limit them, which is quite difficult, especially when you travel to somehwere you have never been.
