My mom, Yasuko, the founder of EEN, works as the knowledge management coordinator of EEN. She participated in a training course at MDF in the Netherlands. What impressed her most in the training was the knowledge pyramid. What is it?
In April, my mom, Yasuko, joined a half-day bus tour to go to the Keukenhof Flower Park in the Netherlands. When the bus started moving, the guide began to explain the schedule in English. Guess what happened next?
May 12th is my mom’s birthday. On this special day, she would like to express her sincere gratitude to all the people who have shown up in her “life-stage” drama.
Look at this table! You can see coffee beans in the center under the glass. Isn’t it a nice way to “promote” coffee in a coffee-producing country?
What a wonderful idea to use coconut shells as planters! The coconuts complement the orchids “beary” well; they generate a “beary” natural and exotic atmosphere.
The other day, my mom, who is working in a small town in Laos, went to a cafe for lunch. After ordering a tuna sandwich, she looked around the café as she waited. She is always looking for “Let’s BEAR” products.
These women in the photos are selling rattan shoots. They live close to a forest, and often go into the forest to collect rattan shoots. Since the rattan shoots are edible, they are valued as cash crops.
Look! What is this? Yes, it is a tire. But it is not a whole tire. It is half a tire. My mom, who is working in Laos, found this in a village the other day. What is it used for in the village?
My mom is sending you a New Year’s message from Laos. She is ubiquitous. She is always out of home, working abroad as a global mother. In 2014, she may show up in your country! If you see her in your country, say, “Let’s BEAR!” to her, instead of “hello.”
