Today I have a big confession to make. Although I am a minister, but I truly realize I am a stupid human being who have a lover in Honolulu.
It was summer in 2002 when I first met her. It was my first sight love and immediately I fell in love. Since then whenever I went to Oahu, I always went to see her. I don't know how many times I went. The other day, too, I went to see her after the workshop. I took a late flight and after sending other ministers to the airport, I went back to the city and meet.
I'm sorry......I am a such a bakatare bonpu minister. Here is my lover in the bigger picture.
This is my lover, Kotteri Ramen at Tenka Ippin!!!! Yes, she is my best lover=ramen, ever in Hawaii.
Then you might wonder who is a beautiful lady in the photo with me? I am sorry she is not my lover of course, but a TV talent, Mayumi-san of the Ultimate Japan (OC16).
I met her over 13 years ago since they opened a Ramen store in Waikiki. Of course, I am one of their customers but because I often went, she remembered me.
Last time I met her was before they moved the store to Kapahulu, so it must be 9 years ago. Since then, I saw her only in the TV and never seen her at the store. But the other day, I was soooooo surprised to see Mayumi San was working at Tenka Ippin! Then I mentioned I saw her in the TV and to my surprise, she remembered me!!! I was so glad that I asked her to take a photo with me. Mahalo Mayumi-san!
The Tenka Ippin Ramen is my very best food for me. That's why I want to call it my lover. Now back to my confession.....don't you think I am bakatare because I am so attached to Ramen!
