서울연구원 재직 시절 큰 도움 되어준 영국 LSE대학의 앤드류 클라크(Andrew Clark) 교수와의 만남. 발걸음을 떼기 시작한 한국정부의 행복지수 개발에 조언을 아끼지 않겠다며 나서는 그의 모습을 보며 내 직업에 대한 보람을 느낀다. Andrew Clark, a professor at the LSE, is the one who helped me with his valuable resources on a happiness index during my tenure as a researcher at the Seoul Institute. I feel rewarded for what I've done so far as he says he will be of utmost assistance in the matter of oncoming happiness forums in Korea. #lse#happinessindex#서울연구원#지역재단#행복지수#행복#gnh
had a nice veg-pasta for quick lunch today at one of my favorite cafe, “Central Cafe”, here in Thimphu. Of course there are so many restaurants and cafes here as the capital city of Bhutan, but, honestly, it is so difficult to find a place where I can have good meals, teas, cakes, peaceful time, and most important factor, GOOD SERVICE ! This cafe has everything. So, check it out if not yet.
Most of the restaurants here in Bhutan, they don’t know what is the service. They are nice people as the GNH Buddhists when you meet them in private, but they are not so good when it comes to the service business. Their service manner is far behind from world's standard. Sometimes I feel I have to train them, or open a "Food and Service Management School" here by myself as the one who used to work in the hospitality industry in Japan...
Happy Losar (New Year) to all of my Bhutanese friends.
