The Adventures of a Foreign Salaryman in Tokyo in Stockholm!

Now, yours truly has returned to the roots in Stockholm, where everything started once upon a time. I´ve now set up base camp at big bro´s place and have entertained myself with playing with my little little niece, I have a great picture where she looks at me with an expression of true terror on her face, later on I might put that one up here as well.

Although no longer a consultant, the world as a high powered executive is taking me around the world. Although this is alledgedly a work trip I will manage to squeeze in haunting a friends marriage this weekend (and yeah, damn, I guess I´ll have to write a speech or something for that, I´ll do that on the train...) and meeting a few friends.

Now I just have to get used to the fact that I can actually just go into a convenience store to get my snus so no disaster if I run out at some point!

I am a publisher of THE EAST; the only English newspaper, which is mainly focused on the East Asian information (at the beginning of every month, more than 12,000 free copies are distributed throughout the London area, particularly, where East Asian Networks are established).

I looked at your blog the other day and have been wondering if there would be any chance that we could publish some of your interesting articles on the paper.
We think some of your blog articles should be very helpful to the Westners who are interested in Asian Culture.
The East cannot afford to pay for your articles right now (as we are non-profitable organisation). However, if you wish, we can still offer you:
1. Advertising space
2. Link to THE EAST web site blog section

We look forward to hearing from you shortly.

Many thanks and kind regards,

Hyung Wook Lee

Random question that crossed my mind recently... you didn't happen to spend some time at a well-known Tokyo university during the mid 90's?

Mr. Salaryman said...

Haha, no, I did some time in a lesser known Japanese university in the outback though in the mid 90's.

Ah, OK, I knew someone with a similar sounding background to yours, and it would have been mildly amusing if you turned out to be him, which you haven't, so we can't get all ohisashiburi! and "remember K Sensei?" etc. etc. on each other.
