Look they even have a cappuccino maker, ooooh, jeoulousy 😉 And an “ayi” (a local Chinese maid) who cooks and serves you breakfast, if you get there before 9.30am that is. If that’s not incentive to start your office day early, I dunno what is! Damn, that’s one up on Japanese “service”.

Can you say, “multiculturasia”. They got peeps from all over Asia up in this jizoint…
