Some memories from Japan

In our shop we have to volunteer to tell something about ourselves in our little "IT Newspaper". I had a older picture from my contract time in Japan with the company NYK where we used to load in Indonesian oil fields and sometimes in local Texaco Ports and discharge in Kashima/ Japan.

So he scanned this picture for me. Hmmm it's been a while since I worked out, I guess seeing this pic I really have to get back to shape. The guy in the Blue Pullover is a colleague of mine(A Radio Officer on Board).

Here we're standing on the poopdeck(backside of the ship).

As an addendum, just this stats on page loads on the day I posted this blog. Hmmm all the more a reason to get back to pumping iron...

And just later in the evening lot's of hits and newcomers to the blog. Damn, people like the

And the Quarterly keeps rising too...




  1. u look like a blog...keep it up...
    thanx for visiting mine...see you....
    take care....

  2. I did indeed (once upon a time) spend a helluva time on myself heh heh

    Thanks for dropping by :-)

  3. Thought I'd post something just for some laughs...

  4. At first I felt like saying... Oye hoye, dolle sholle... kya baat hai ;)

  5. Exactly Ha Ha!

    It was real fun working out then. You've got all the time in the world.

    I need to really get back to it.

  6. "Tell me/us something about yourself" -- one of those questions I could never get used to. Thankfully I have not been asked that too many times.

    Nice picture.

  7. Thanks for dropping by Manjusha. To me it was as difficult (well I felt a bit queasy about it). I had to give a picture with my little story and it got me thinking of trying to get myself the way I was sometime back.

    Well it did me some good, I'm starting tomorrow to get my abs/pecs and the works back in shape. I'm also gonna post some more stuff on myself (primarily for myself , I just posted a stats on page loads the day I posted this blog, apparantly it was viewed by many :-))to encourage myself to start picking/recollecting other parts of myself the way I left them.

    And really I avoided the "Tell me/us something about yourself" lot's of time. But sometimes you (re)discover yourself this way.

    Thanks again for dropping by :-)
