KANAZAWA -1-

(2008-03-31)
I went to Kanazawa with Yoshiko and Nori-chan on March 28 and 29.
Kanazawa is one of my favorite towns and I have visited there several times.

This time, we went there by bus.
I left home earlier than usual because the bus would leave at 7:20A.M.

The bus stopped twice and arrived at Kanazawa Station around 12:00P.M.
Yoshiko told me Kanazawa was too cold, so I wore winter clothes.

TURKISH RESTAURANT

(2008-03-30)
As I said, I went to eat Turkish food.
According to Micro Man, Turkish food is one of the most famous foods in the world.
But the food that I ate wasn’t special.
I think Thai food at Faa Thai is more delicious.

One thing that I was interested in is they had camel meat.
When I went to Egypt, I saw some camels on track.
A tour guide said that they were food, and if I ate camel meat, I would realize that beef was so delicious.
Since then, I was waiting for the chance to eat camel.
The camel meat wasn’t worse than I thought. But they used strong smell condiment, so I still don’t know its true taste.

Any way, if you are interested in Turkish food, it’s worth trying it.

A DREAM

I had a dream last night.

I buy many snacks to my friends.
They are different kinds of snacks.
My friends give me a piece of snack but I refuse to eat.
Because I have to eat lots of Turkish food tonight.


Then, I woke up.

Yes!!
I went to Turkish restaurant today.
I will tell you next time!!

OMIYAGE

(2008-03-24)
080324OMIYAGE

One of my co-workers, Full Moon, gave me a box of caramel.
He went to Yokohama for business trip.

I showed the caramel to Oily Man, and said, “Lately, Full Moon knows me a lot.
He knows that I will do anything if someone gives me something”.

Full Moon transferred to my section about five months ago,
and we haven’t known each other before.

Oily Man was laughing.

A few days ago, Oily Man gave me souvenir.
He has been to business trip, too.
I felt sorry.
I think that he thought he had to buy something to me.

I really appreciated, and I thought I had to help him as much as I could.


MY SEWING MACHINE

(2008-03-23)
I have a sewing machine.
I bought it when I moved to my apartment, so it was about 20 years old.

I like my sewing machine.
When I bought it, a clerk said that you shouldn’t buy cheaper one.
He meant that we could buy a sewing machine on TV shopping.
These machines sometimes are really cheap but they don’t work well.
I decided to buy that the clerk recommended.
He has delivered it to my apartment by bike.
It was about 10 kilometers. I really appreciated it.

I don’t use it a lot, but it is very helpful.
I sewed curtain, some bags and several things.

It still works well, but it started to make a strange noise since about 5 years ago.
I asked my mother how I should do,
so she said she would come to my apartment and do maintenance.
It was because she was a professional.

But she passed away before she came to my apartment.
And I haven’t taken care of my sewing machine.

This time, finally I decided to clean it up by myself.
I did it last night. It wasn’t more difficult than I thought.
There were a lot of dusts in the machine. Taking off dust is like cleaning someone’s earwax.

I want to sew a bag of electric dictionary. I think I can make a nice one.


COOCK FOOD

(2008-03-22)
1500 LUNCH BOX


Micro Man is going to transfer to Hokkaido, so I had a farewell party last Friday.
The party have had at the cafeteria in the laboratory, and about 70 people gathered.

I had to organize the party as usual.
I ordered lunch box to Coock-shokuhin, which owns the cafeteria of the laboratory.
I didn’t want to order there, but I thought I had to. You probably can understand my situation.

The sales lady showed me a sample picture of the meal.
It didn’t seem delicious, but she said this was the most popular meal
and her customers were satisfied it.

I had no choice.
It was 1000yen lunch box.
She said it was better to add a spiny lobster. I
t was 1500yen.
I really doubted it.
But I really had no choice…

We had a briefing session on Friday.
During the session, I prepared for the party.
A deliverer came to around 5:00P.M.
My co-workers and I put the lunch boxes in the order.
Another lady came to see the lunch box because she was interested in 1500yen-lunch-box.
She opened it and said, “There is no rice.”

I thought she was joking.
But she was true.
There was no rice in the lunch box.
I was really surprised.
I have never heard 'no rice in lunch box'.
The deliverer called the office. I don’t know whom he talked to, but that guy also surprised.

The deliverer went to buy sushi to a supermarket.
I was really nervous because the session would end soon.

Fortunately, he came back before the session ended.
Coock-food also forgot an instant miso-soup.
I had nothing to say about it…

The meal was terrible, too.
It seemed it was cooked thousands years ago.
Tempura was soaked by oil.
There was no fresh food.
I can’t explain how terrible it was.
There was no shadow of the sample.
I was ashamed because I organized the party.

I know I can buy better one at Hokahoka bentou.

I decided I would never order at Coock-food!!


THE CAKES

I went to the farewell party last night. at Taikouen.
I have nothing to tell you.

Only one thing I want to tell you is that I ate four cakes.

The persons who took the same table liked a cake, too.
So, we had a big battle.
Finally, we took some cakes from another table.
All of us were really satisfied.

ARE YOU TIRED??

(2008-03-19)
I took the Chinese lesson.
I learned pronunciation again.
I have to take six pronunciation lessons.
It is a little boring.

I learned a couple of conversations, too.

One conversation is interesting.

The teacher said, “Did you get tired?”
This meaning is, of course, if I was tired or not.
But it uses as a daily conversation, like “How are you?”

When I response it, I say, “How about you?”
It is something strange.
If someone asks me if I am tired, I probably say, “Not much.” or something.

My brain has been already confused.
I have to do my homework harder and harder.



GANSO DEBUYA

(2008-03-18)
Maiu, Ganso-Debuya, ends.
Maiu is a variety show.
Two big guys visit any places in Japan, and eat, eat and eat every week.

When it was on air on Friday, my dad and I used to watch it.
The relationship between my dad and I isn’t so good, but this show has connected our relationship.
We watched this show and always said why Ishi-chan and Papaiya-san could eat too much food, and why Ishi-chan wore short sleeves T-shits even if it was winter.

Afterwards, this show transferred to on Tuesday.
We couldn’t watch it together, but when I am at my apartment, I still watch this show.

Maiu ends today.
I am very upset….



COFFEE

(2008-03-17)
I haven’t drunk coffee before, but lately I drink a few cups of coffee a week.
I realized that the coffee reduces my tiredness and makes my brain clear.
It works really well.

The coffee, which I buy, is put into individual package.
It is the most popular style in Japan.
Ground coffee beans have been set in paper filter in the package.
What you have to do is only to pour boiled water.
It is convenient and tastier than freeze-dried coffee.
The cheaper one is about 20 yen, and the expensive one is about 250 yen per one package.

My sister worried that this coffee produces many garbage.
I agree her.
If I use the freeze-dried coffee, I won’t need a garbage can.

But I think I still continue to drink this type coffee.
I have to find out a good idea to reuse the coffee bean.


STRAWBERRY VANILLA COCKTAIL

(2008-03-16)
STRAWBERRY VANILLA
I went to Daiei.
I saw a fryer and it said that they sold a strawberry vanilla cocktail.
I don’t usually drink alcohol but it seemed really tasty.
I imagined the taste of it. It probably sweet and thick…

I looked for the strawberry vanilla cocktail.
Daiei had a large variety of alcohol. If you like sake, you can’t leave there.
They also had many chu-hie of Spring. They seemed delicious, too.

But I couldn’t find the strawberry vanilla cocktail. I think it was sold out.

I bought other ones, instead. They seemed delicious, too,
but I still want to drink the strawberry vanilla cocktail.
I am going to look for it today.
This is the most important work right now.
CHU-HIE


WHITE DAY

(2008-03-15)
WHITE DAY GIFT

Yesterday was White Day?
Were you given some gifts?

I was given a box of cakes. I haven’t given them a chocolate, though.

Japan has a custom that ladies give chocolate to not only their boyfriends but also their co-workers on Valentine’s day.
And of course, their co-workers give some gifts back to the ladies on White Day.
But in my case, my co-workers gave me cakes even if I hadn’t given them a chocolate.

Yesterday, when I was typing, one of my co-workers approached me and put something under my desk.
But I was really busy, so I didn’t give attention to it.
He said he wanted to talk to me. I was a little irritable because I was busy, but I listened to him.

He said that what he put under my desk was a gift from his(and my) co-workers.
He said they were helped by me a lot, and they felt really appreciated. So, they collected some money and bought the cakes for me.

Can you imagine my feeling?
If you aren’t Japanese, you probably don’t know how much this case is rare.
White Day gift is always a social obligation.
But my co-workers gave me the cakes and thank.

I felt really happy, and I decided that I would become a more helpful person.


TURKISH RESTAURANT

(2008-03-14)
One of my co-workers, Sniffle, retires at the end of this month.

I have to reserve a restaurant for the farewell party.
I wanted to find a restaurant around my office, but Micro Man said he wanted to eat Turkish.
I looked for a Turkish restaurant, but there was no restaurant around the office.
In the end, I reserved the restaurant close to Yotsubashi Station.
I looked at the menu on the Internet.
All meals seemed really delicious.
I thought it was OK even if the restaurant was far from the office.

But, wait!!
This isn’t the farewell party for Micro Man. This party is for Sniffle.
Ummm…
I don’t want to know if Sniffle likes it or not.

THE FIRST CHINESE LESSON

(2008-03-12)
I took the first Chinese lesson last night.

I learned ‘tone’ at first.
There are four tones in Chinese, and all of them have different meanings.
That’s why learning ‘tone’ is really important.
I practiced tones by ‘ma’ sound.
I said, “ma, ma, ma, ma”.
I thought if someone listened to me, they should feel really strange.
I learned ‘vowel’ afterwards.
One hour passed soon.
I learned simple conversations, for example ‘how are you?’ or ‘hello’ and some vocabularies.
My brain is already full…

I met three Chinese teachers yesterday.
While I was waiting for the lesson, all teachers talked to me.
They said that if I had any questions, please let them know.
They are really friendly and kind.

I signed up 8-month lesson. But I want to continue it for two years.
If I master Chinese, I will guide you to China.


POLLEN SASON

(2008-03-11)
Pollen season came again.

I wore mask this morning. My face says "I itch", especially around nose.

Disposable mask is really popular now, but I usually wear a normal one.
I don’t want to waste my money, and I don’t want to produce much garbage.

But this morning, I wore the disposable mask. I think someone gave it to me.
While I wore it, I couldn’t see well because I wore glasses and the glasses steamed up by my breath.
And I couldn’t get oxygen enough.
When I got my office, I was really tired.
I want pollen to go away soon….

STEPHEN KING

(2008-03-08)
SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION

I bought a new book a few weeks ago.

Lately, I read English books every night.
It is about only a few pages a day, but it is a good practice for me.
I finished the last one, and I bought the new one.

The book is written by Stephen King.
My mom really liked his books.
I have read some of them, but I am not sure whether I like his books or not.
But I always think if my mom were still alive, she definitely would read his books.
That’s why I read his books on behalf of my mom.

There are four stories in the book that I bought.
I thought it wasn’t too difficult for me because I have already known three of them.
One of them is my favorite movie, SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION.
I watched this movie several times and I have already read the translated book.

I have already decided what I will buy next.
The title is ‘cell’. The author is Stephen King.
I found this book on Amazon.
I can buy it for a low price.
I want to buy it right now, but it is really dangerous
because I don’t know when I finish the book I’m reading.

I think I will click ‘order’ icon in a few days.


THE MOTOR SHOW

(2008-03-06)
MOTOR SHOW

The car crashed into the convenience store.
I often see the same news, but they hit only their heads on the entrances.
In this case, the whole body went into the store.
It seems a motor show.

Be careful, anyway....

PRACTICE. EVERYDAY..

(2008-03-04)
As I’ve already said, I’m studying Chinese.

I try to memorize several words a day but I can’t.
When I memorize, I remember Chinese characters, too.
I should remember the Chinese character, its meaning, and its pronunciation together.
It is really tough for me.

By the way, I have practiced calligraphy for over 5 years.
The characters that I wrote are still terrible, but I practice anyway.

Then I brought up a good idea.
If I practice Chinese characters in Chinese…

I can memorize Chinese characters and practice penmanship.
It means ‘killing two birds with one stone’..

I will ask my teacher if she knows a good textbook.


GODIVA

(2008-03-02)
GODIVA

As you know, GODIVA is one of the most famous chocolate makers in the world.
The shapes of chocolates are beautiful, and the taste is gorgeous.
You probably want to eat it, but you can’t buy it for yourself.
When you buy GODIVA, it is the special gift to someone else.

ZUI JIN

(2008-03-01)

I listen to CD everyday, but I cannot memorize because my brain is dull.
