The maid made me happy.

This time, I’ll try to write about my first experience on visiting “maid-cafe”.

Akihabara in Tokyo is very famous for the place about Japanese animations and appliances. I went there in February. I got two purposes to go there. First I wanted to go to “maid-cafe”, and second, I wanted to buy a game software.

Do you know what “maid-cafe” is? ummm…I don’t know if my expression is correct…”maid-cafe” is…kind of the place to enjoy talking, viewing, communicating with pretty maids while having a drink.

The clerks putting maid-looking clothes serve drink and entertain us. Some clerk kindly entertain us, some clerk coldly do us. In the case of cold entertainment, you can find that they sometimes and abruptly change their attitudes into gentle ones. It calls “tun-dere” in the realm.

The maid-cafe I went to was, what we call, a normal cafe, not extremely unique. As I felt excited and nervous, I entered with my friend.

“Welcome!” So cute and high toned voice appeared from every place, and a girl putting maid costume on came to us. “Is this your first place to come here?” asked the maid with her smile on her face. “Y…yes…” said I. “Please come here.” said she.

I saw a few customers drinking, eating something. All of them seemed to search for the chance to talk to maids. I guessed they regularly came to meet them.

Looking around, I ordered one cappuccino with one service. With extra money, they give one service to draw something on the surface of the cappuccino with chocolate cream.

“What do you want me to draw on it?” asked the maid to me.
“ummm….What can you draw? A letter? Painings of something?” asked I.
“Anything! Anything you want!” said she smiling.
“ummm….anything…ok…I wanna this.” I asked her to draw one Chinise character written on the menu, pointing it out.

That was “love”. Ofcourse it’s written in Chinise character.

“Okay, I’ll be right back.” said she.

After a few minute, she brought my cappuccino and started drawing “love” in Chinise character on it in front of me.

“Wow! You can really do that!”
“Ofcourse I can!”
“So…You often practise it? I guess…you guys got so hard traning in the backyard before the open.”
“hahaha…not really. but…sometimes some customers tease us.”
“Like what?”
“They ask me to draw very complicated animation characters…such as Gundam,”
“Gundam? You did?”
“I didn’t even know that! So…I drew my imaginary Gundam on it…hehehe”
“I said to him, This is my Gundam in my heart!”

Talking with me, she smoothly drew the letter of “love” on my cappuccino. It’s already…kind of art!

Additionally, I was surprised with one thing. Their communication skills! They are not just girls putting pretty clothes. Their talk was so sophisticated. Actually, the served drink in that cafe was just a…drink; however, I felt that was very delicious because their talk made my drinking time happy.

“Hey, I know what you’re thinking… You…wanna employ her on your business, huh?” my friend talked to me, chuckling. “Yeah…her communication skill has already been completed…I think she could get by even if she started working in my office.” I said.

I had a happy time.

    Friendly communication and pleasant attitude is a plus.

    I think Japan is innovative.

      Hello, girlgeum, how’s your weekend?

      It was 2 years ago, and I remembered the maid talking delightedly. Yes, there are many kinds of interesting businesses in Japan. 🙂

    I had a blast. I went to an art gallery with some people. Drove around a bit. Went shopping. Ate. Had so much fun.

    And you? I’ll read your latest entry.

      Hello, girlgeum! I’m sorry I’m late to reply to you. 😦

      You had a wondeful weekend. Great. Me, I’ve just finished writing an article on my last weekend. I made a new script through the night. 😦

    And by the sad face, guess it wasn’t good. Read in your latest article how you revised it.

    Did you “feel” what you wrote? By that I mean did you get a sense of satisfaction, not mentally but emotionally?

      Did recent my articles sound like I felt sad? Oh, girlgeum, thank you for worrying. 🙂

      I’ve just posted a new article. I hope you enjoy it.
