Enjoyed playing Badminton with some trouble

It was cloudy but comfortable considering it was in the middle of rainy season.

After I finished work, I left the office as soon as possible to go to the gym to play badminton.  Since I had gone direct to the partner’s office for a meeting in the morning, I didn’t bring my racket bag and had to go back home first then headed for the gym by bicycle.

But halfway to the gym, I realized that I didn’t bring my shoes with me and had to go back home again and left home.  As a result, I managed to get there just on time of the match-making.  Huu..

I got an advice from a man who resembles 9th dan Fukaura Kouichi that I should string my racket with more tension to the degree of 27lbs and such because I can hit the shuttle as hard as I can withstand the high tension.  He said I can hit a speedier smash that way.

バドミントンメモ

まだ、雑感だが守るときに踵を上げるイメージにすると、追いつきやすいし、ネット際につめやすい気がした。

늦게까지 연습한 보람이 있었다

대풍의 하룻밤이 밝아, 오늘은 개져서 더워졌다.

아침에 출근할때 대풍의 영향때문에 전차가 횟수를 줄여서 운행했어서 너무 붐비어 있었다. 저는 계단에서 앞으로 전진할 수 없이 서 있는 사람들을 봐서 타기를 단념해서 다른 경로로 출근하기를 정했다.

오늘은 파트너 회사에서 제미나르가 있었고 저는 거기에서 데모를 담당했다. 어젯밤에 몇번이나 연습한 덕분에 잘 할 수 있었다. 기뻐졌다.

그러나 내일도 같은 제품의 데모의 사내 리뷰가 있다. 참가자의 성격부터가 오늘과 같이 잘 되지 않는 생각이 든다. 어떻게 되겠지, 뭐.

Please come back soon, Mr.Sales

It is cool and comfortable weather.

As a presales engineer, I work with sales people and am mainly in charge of technical area.  I don’t usually handle sales tasks such as estimating costs and processing order sheets, but today I confronted a situation where I should take care of some of them.

Today a sales person with whom I work for a sales opportunity, took a vacation leave, but the partner for this matter submitted an order sheet and asked us to ship the products as soon as possible.  Because I am the one who knows the background of the business, I had to contact the partner to ask about the order detail and negotiate on the shipping date.

These kind of tasks are the ones I had never experienced, so I was confused conducting them.  It was surely a good opportunity to know the work of sales people, but I don’t want to do that again.  (Because it seemed a kind of boring clerical work.)
