Kyoko & Si Ho Sup Vol.13: Bess (ベス)

This is Bess.  She is the asssitant buyer for my Kyoko San Shop.  Though a fresher  straight out of university , but Bess is a quick learner, confident, reliable and enthusiastic.   She is also friendly, patient, and organized.  Being organized is very important for me, because I am anything but organized.  I always misplace things at work and missing my deadlines, I think it it because of the fact that pregnant women are more forgetful.

こちらがベス。Kyoko San Shopのアシスタント・バイヤー。大卒後間もない新入社員ですが、覚えも早く自信に満ち溢れ、頼れるし、何より仕事熱心。また、フレンドリーで、忍耐強く、まめな性格です。この”まめな性格”は私にとってすごく大切、というのも私が”まめ”のかけらもないから。仕事場でいつも物を置き間違えるし、締切りも忘れがち。妊娠していると忘れっぽくなるからだと思うのだけど・・・

I am able to get on with work smoothly with Bess around, no more time wasting looking for missing files, product samples and so on.  I am grateful that I have Bess as my assistant,  without her I cannot possibly manage the Kyoko San Shop all by myself!

ベスがいると仕事がスムーズに進みます。ファイル、サンプル等を探しまわることもないし。ベスがアシスタントになってくれて本当にウレシイです。彼女なしで一人でKyoko San Shopを切り盛りするのは無理だわ!

Many people have asked me why Bess is pink but not white, beige, or grey like the other rabbits?  Well, Bess grew up in a strawberry farm in England, she has been addicted to strawberries ever since she was old enough to eat them.  Bess would have freshly picked strawberries as her main diet if she could have her own way.  She also has a sweet tooth, that her favorite desserts are strawberry crumble, strawberry shortbread, scones eaten with cottage cream and homemade strawberry jam back home.

他のウサギと違い、ベスはホワイトでもベージュでもグレイでもなくピンク色なのはなぜって? それはね、ベスはイギリスのイチゴ畑で育ち、イチゴに病みつきになったから。もしイチゴだけで生きていけるなら、間違いなく彼女はそうします!甘いものにも夢中で、イギリスではコテージクリームと自家製ストロベリージャムを付けて、ストロベリークランブル、ストロベリービスケット、スコーンを食べるのが大好きでした。

Bess has only just arrived in Japan a while ago, and she is baffled why the strawberries are available in Winter but not in Summer like everywhere else?  She is also fascinated about all sorts of seasonal strawberry products available in Japan , that she is waiting for her first pay cheque, and can’t wait to try them all!
