I saw an actor Clyde Kusatu at the cafe where we had breakfast meeting every Sunday. I mentioned guys that who is sitting four tables away from us. But they didn't know who he is. "Hey are you really an American?" He is the famous Hollywood actor. Still, I didn't get any reaction from them. so, I gave up and closed my mouth.
One of my Japanese friends goes back to Japan. He already found a job in Japan. I haven't seen him for while, so we decided to have dinner together. We went to a Japanese restaurant in Hollywood. It called INAKA. My friend N went to the restaurant couple of times before but it was first time for me. Also, N's friend W joined us. We had a nice dinner and an enjoyable conversation. The dinner was a contemporary version of Japanese dishes. It wasn't the Japanese dishes as I remember.
