About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Drink not too much and learn flamenco guitar... both are too hard

ABOUT ME

I'm a clumsy cook from Japan. Creating new plates in different places with different ingredients, and learning the languages in the world is my passion. I left Japan,when I was 24y/o. Since then, I live in other countries most of time, in order to ... (I don't remember anymore why I'm staying out of my country) Anyway,so far,I lived and I've been working as a cook in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and France. Now,I arrived at my new stage "Milan" in Italy. I'm looking forward to discover new things.

Plus,I like to cook for my friends and myself. Good meal and some bottles of wine on a table, that's the most peaceful time for me.

CouchSurfing is good to meet with fun and nice people. Let's help out together.

Do NOT visit my blog,please, because it's very boring. http://zizipoko.blogspot.com/

One Amazing Thing I've Done

It was so amazing and also was horrible. I experienced working on tuna fishing boat at Mooloolaba,AUS. The first thing,I got sea sick, even so I had to work hard. And,second,there was not lots time to sleep,the priority is catching fish and preparing the bait. And,I couldn't even sleep well because the boat is always rolling and moving. The last thing,I couldn't catch well the fucking auzzy fisherman accent:D Anyway,I loved this experience and the crew.

Snowboarding at Mt-Washington's Tuckerman Ravine in NH,USA where the sunctary of skiers in North America. Climbing up with crampons and sliding down on the super steep slope from the summit 6288ft to the bottom.

Working at 2 stars restaurant at Toulouse,France. If you do cooking in your life, at least once,you may think or dreme to work on luxury crusing boat or at restaurant with Michelin stars. Yes,it's extremely hard.

I walked through The Pyrénées by myself from Vernet-les-Bains to Banyuls-sur-Mer. 122km for 6days. One night,I found a little village of hippies. They welcomed me with Chai-tea and free meal at the night. Also,I could sleep in their Tipi. Another night,I met some French-Catalan people who were just having a little party and camping. They offered me to join them and I had some drinks and merverous Paella at the night and a breakfast at next morning. It wasn't a only hiking. I could meet so nice people and experienced the warm french hospitalities.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'd rather learning,though, if I would,I could teach Japanese(Osaka dialect,it's my mother tongue) or cooking(I'm not bad and I like Japanese and French cuisine)
