What's with Japanese food ?

Today was more of a chilled out day … with nothing much to do …

We went to the amusement park in the morning .. at about 12 and sat on the Ferris Wheel and the roller coaster … which I dont think I will be doing again for quite sometime now …

The Roller Coaster was uncomfortable and short and pretty scary … the Ferris wheel was more of a sight seeing thing than a joy ride …

Anyways … the rest of the day, went in watching all the short films which were submitted earlier by the participants and the 6 finalists of the Software Design Invitational … which were all pretty good …

The 6 finalists were : Slovenia, Brazil, Germany, Greece, China and Russia …

Russia had a really innovative app and China was scarily comprehensive …

Greece tackled a social issue of creating a speech to sign language and sign language to speech app for the hearing impaired …

The other team presentations were boring … and the Germany app was not that interesting …

Whatever they did, we could have implemented on our base system within a matter of a few hours … We had all the back end …

Only their presentation was slightly better …

My prediction is : Russia, China and Greece … lets see what happens tomorrow…

Note to myself : Next year, the presentation has to be awesome !!!

Anyways, we had this very sophisticated, formal, Japanese dinner in one of the poshest clubs in Japan …

Again, all of us could just not consume the food.

Whats with the food huh ?

I think rest all people from all over the world can still eat it … but we Indians just cannot …

We had an early Indian dinner before we went to the one at the club …

The dinner was supposed to be 5 course … and by the 2nd course … we had excused ourselves to go to the bathroom … and ditched the entire event … walking 25 mins to get back to the hotel …

Had two glasses of ( not so good ) starbuck’s cold coffee on the way back …

Anyways … next year’s Imagine Cup is going to be in India … so there is going to be a flag handing over ceremony and all of us are supposed to be on stage …

So, we have some sort of rehearsel at 10 am …

Thats all from me for now …

More pictures … :)

This was supposed to be our main course .. some boiled carrot and some seeweed look alike vegetable …

We had 9 types of cutlery out there !!! 9 types !!!

 

Yes … you can rub your eyes again … but this is Gaurang in formals !!!

Didn’t think that would happen before the world imploded in itself .. did ya ?

 

The Roller Coaster ride that we sat in … which solidifed my belief that these things are not for me …

    Hehehe …
    While at the main event in the afternoon … we were all given a sheet of flags of your country …
    You had to write your name and email id on each sticker and exchange it with as many countries as you could …

    The people with more than 5 country flags got a novelty gift … which turned out to be a bunch of post-its with a microsoft footnote :(

    Anyways … goju boy here, got all his stickers from girls … so the search seems to be going in the right direction …
    Now, he even has the email addresses of about 5 – 6 girls so he could later get in contact … hehehe :)
