Hello everyone! I’m Poom.
As you know I’m a foreign student here, so…. Let’s read this entry in English!! d(^_^)b
I would like to name this week as a “Lonely Week”.
We began this week with tasty cocktail made by Suzuki at Monday’s night, It was mixed of Malibu, Kahlua and milk. So creative!!

Then we relaxed by playing table tennis, Today we have many special guests, Suzuki, Hirabe and Eto san. It was very fun and we love to play that, if you don’t believe me…see what’s next!
Suzuki and Hirabe joined us this time
Eto san also joined us before he leaved to DICOMO Conference on the following day
On Tuesday, some of our lab’s member and also sensei went out to DICOMO Conference in Hokkaido, so it’s the beginning of the loneliness in this week. At night, we did what we love again. Yes, playing table tennis!!! At first, we planned to play only one hour, but we couldn’t stop, so we continued playing and totally, we had played for about two hours until 2am!
Table tennis addict!!
Normally, we have seminar and workshop on wednesday. But they was cancelled because of absence of our members and sensei. Also since thursday until Saturday NAIST has a entrance examination. So we have no class on those days. So… we just did our research and there are nothing happened until Friday.
It was almost the end of this week and I would be just a lonely week if these things was not happened.
At the cloudy and silent Friday evening, a student came in with his interesting in our laboratory’s research area. Only three of us, Suzuki, Hirabe and me, (actually 2) introduced him about our laboratory and he looked very attentive.

Yamashita san, after he had a hard night writing paper and submit it in the morning, came in to the room and persuade us to make the kakigori (shaved ice). We said “Yes” immediately. We mixed it with some syrup and it was very delicious.
While we were eating kakigori, some of us came up with idea to go out for dinner because other members was out. After we have searched and thought about our destination, we finally decided to go to French restaurant located in Kyoto university Katsura campus which was said that it was a nice French restaurant with affordable price. So we went out right after that.
We reached the restaurant with dazzle that there are no other customer than us. And we ordered the giant Robster! It was very delicious!!

After we had finished our dinner, we went to have some sweets in Kyoto city, it was too late, so we could not eat the original Kyoto sweet. We could eat just Parfait, cake and the “Real” kakigori.
Our sweets, Parfait, Kakigori and cake!!
It was almost 11pm, some of us (specially me^^) didn’t want to end that wonderful night, so we came up with a crazy plan to go to Service area near Otsu. We used the coin to fate our destination, SA or home. And it was what I wanted, coin told us to go to SA!!!
We took about 30 minutes to that SA, at that place, we could see the very nice cityscape and also the huge Biwa lake. We bought some drinks and admired the wonderful nightscape in front of us (although it was very dark, haha).

And that was the end of this lonely week. Hope you enjoyed reading my entry.
I would like to say goodbye with photo of our laboratory’s atmosphere showing the loneliness of this week. Until next time, byebye ^^.
