Holiday Party@Marriott Torrance: There was a company sponsored Holiday Party at Marriott Hotel Torrance from 6 PM on Saturday, 12/13/2008. Unfortunately it was raining and cold in the morning. I heard there would be 135 attendants. It cleared from the afternoon. Just winds were gusty.
I had a hair appointment from 1 PM at Pharsalia Salon. In over 2 hours, I got hair coloring, a free foot bath service, and a hair set for the party. On the way home, I stopped by at the hotel to take some photos while it's bright. There was a huge Christmas tree outside.

Now it's 6:30 PM, I will go to the ballroom where the party is held. I am little late because I was uploading the previous blog at home.

『ミュージック・カンパニー』のライブ演奏。１２時ミッドナイトまでほぼ休憩なしで続きました。 Live Performances by "Music Company". It continued almost non-stop until Midnight
The Entertainment was a live band performance by "Music Company." The lead vocal was Mariko. She had a beautiful voice and very good. They played and song American songs from the 60's and the 70's. The drummer and the lead vocal guy had a beautiful bold voice and very nice as well. The base guitar player, Dane Matsumura was a member of the famous Jazz group "Hiroshima". He also plays for another group, called "Mojo" according to my boss.
A lot of people danced along the live band music on the dance floor.
It became hectic before Christmas. On 12/8/08, I left home in the morning. I was stopped by a police officer and got a speeding ticket. It was just 4 blocks from my house and 6:55 AM. After that I have seen police officers issuing traffic violation tickets a few times a day every day in near-by Redondo Beach and Torrance area. Let's be careful.
Have a Safe and Wonderful Holiday Season.
