Introduce our staff...vol.9

Now, it is time for introduce the Prince of our hotel.
Guess, who is the Prince of our hotel.
The answer is ...................

Though we have written about Taglyn several times on this blog, we didn't have chance to tell who he is.

Finally we can, The Prince whose real name is Aki.

He is very brave and gentle man...!
If evil people appear, he will come to protect all of you guests just like a knight!
But if insects come closer, he will run away immediately (he hates insects),
So we have to protect him right away :p

........sorry Taglyn, it's a joke! well, actually he is friendly and really hospitable
person......(to ladies?) :p

I was waiting for him to introduce himself for a loooooooong time.
But he still hasn't done it ..
So I decide to write about him.

Name; Akiyoshi Taglyn
Hometown; Tokyo
Launguage; English, Japanese,
What he likes; wine, chocolate, cute girls?
What he does'nt like; insect

Picture vol.1
Taglyn at work (thinking about the plan for tonight ;P, just kidding!)

Picture vol.2
After his work (He is thinking to look for beautiful ladies:p)

Picture vol.3
Pretending as if he were a basketball boy

Good enough? or More pictures?
Okay, we have one more picture.
Here we go !!!

Picture vol.4

Don't be deceived by this honey face ;P
