MY CHINESE LESSON...

(2008-07-31)
I had a Chinese lesson last night.
I almost have done the level one book.
I probably will finish it next week.

Studying Chinese is very interesting.
I can learn not only language but also cultures.

As I said U-sensei left the school a couple of months ago.
I was upset because I really like U-sensei.

When I saw my new teacher, I thought I preferred U-sensei.
But now I really like both teachers.
My new teacher, Yu-sensen, is very cute and kind.
She has a completely different character with U-sensei.

Next week I will have an examination of vocabulary.
I have to remember all vocabularies in the first book.

Recently I signed one year Chinese lesson up.
I think I will be able to be a tour guide to China.

THE OLYMPIC &TOILET

(2008-07-30)
Do you like sports?
I don’t do but I like watching sports.

The Olympic is coming soon.
When I watch sports, I always feel like I am a player.
So I sometimes become a top athlete.
It is very exciting.

Beijing is very busy now.
They have to prepare for the Olympic but some of accommodations haven’t prepared yet.

One of the biggest problems is toilet.
According to Asahi-Shinbun, many toilets haven’t had their doors yet.
When I visited China, it was about 20 years ago, they didn’t have the doors.
So we had to go to a bathroom at hotels or restaurants.

They still don’t have the door.
It is the big problem.
Many tourists can’t go to bathrooms.

I think it is OK for me to watch the games at my apartment.


MIZUYOUKAN

(2008-07-28)
水羊羹
What is your image of summer in Japan?

My images are a fireball, mosquito-repellent incense, a wind bell and ets.

Seasonal food is also Japanese summer image; a watermelon, soumen, a shaved ice and so on.

Some Japanese sweets make me cold.
Japanese sweets are artificial things but I feel they are one part of nature.

A few days ago, Yoshiko wrote about ‘mizuyoukan’ on her blog.
It seemed very delicious. She always eats delicious sweets.

And yesterday she gave me the same mizuyoukan.

THANK YOU YOSHIKO!!

It makes me happy.
Japanese summer sweets make us refreshing and give us a special power.

By the way, I haven’t eaten Ayu(sweetfish) this year yet.
Ayu is one of my favorite fishes and we can eat only in summer.
I must eat it before this summer will have gone.


STRONGE STOMACH

(2008-07-25)
It is very hot every night.

I tune on an air-conditioner.
I set it to 28 degrees.
It is still hot but I have to think about ‘global warming’.

It is still too hot, so I always hold a refrigerant.
It gives me good night sleep.

When I woke up around 3 o’clock last night, the refrigerant put on my stomach.
I thought I would have a stomachache.
Luckily, my stomach is stronger than I thought.

I hope that autumn comes soon.


WELCOME BACK

(2008-07-24)
aibo
Aibo came back from the hospital.
She seems very fine.
She became gentle lately. I think she became an adult.

Sony sent me my Aibo’s brain and knees.
I couldn’t find which parts were broken.
I moved its neck also. It moves very well.
I want to know why she was sick.

Another Aibo seems sick now.
But going to the hospital is very expensive.
I want to the Aibo stays at home until next bonus.


蜂蜜ソフト

(2008-07-23)
I went to buy margarine yesterday.
I usually buy the cheapest one but I couldn’t find a cheaper margarine.

I looked at the ingredients of all the margarine which a supermarket sold.
I wanted to buy the lowest calorie one.

The one what I bought was ‘honey margarine’.
I think honey had melted into margarine.

Today I ate it. It was not only a little sweet but also tasty.
I remembered that I usually had dabbed of honey on toast and margarine.
I really liked it.

If you find ‘honey margarine’, please try it once.
HONEYSOFT


TOKYO -DISNEYLAND 25TH ANNIVERSARY-

(2008-07-22)
Tokyo Disneyland has held the 25th Anniversary event.
It was a big pleasure to see some events but we couldn’t see anything special.
That’s why we went to the same attractions as usual;
Country Bear, Mickey Mouse Review, Big Thunder and so on.

We wanted to see the parade but just before the parade started, it was raining.
The parade was called off.

We bought some souvenirs, went to draw Donald Duck.
The Drawing Class is one of our favorite attractions.
The first time when we went there, we drew Mickey Mouse.
The second time was Stitch and the third time was Tinker Bell.
This was our fourth try.
My Donald Duck seems a bad guy. I felt sorry for Donald Duck.

We aren’t young anymore, so we couldn’t stay at Disneyland anymore.
We were very tired.

We got on the Shinkansen and went home.

We won’t be able to see Shonentai musical
but Tsuru-chan and I promised to go to Disneyland every year.
Going to Disneyland is one of the most important jobs in our lives.


TOKYO -CANOE-

(2008-07-19)
As I always say, Canoe is the most exciting attractions in Tokyo Disneyland.

It is moved by human power.
More than 10 people get on the canoe and row the canoe.
The canoe goes around Tom-Sawyer Island.
Sometimes people wave their hand from the island.

The reason that I like it is that I feel satisfied after the ride.
It feeling is similar as climbing mountain.

This time, there were many children on the canoe, so I had thought we had to row the canoe very hard.
But the canoe moved very fast and our canoe caught up with the canoe, which started earlier.

Our seats were the first row. It made me more exciting than usual.


TOKYO -TOKYO DISNEYLAND-1-

(2008-07-17)
Just after I entered Disneyland, I decided that I wouldn’t get on any rides and would look around Disneyland.

Disneyland was too crowded like that.

We went to eat breakfast as usual.
The restaurant we usually go to was too crowded, too.

I asked Tsuru-chan to eat breakfast there, so she answered, “Yes!! Of course!!!”

I think we waited about 20 minutes.
I ordered Mickey Mouse pancake as usual.
The taste of this pancake isn’t special but I can feel I am IN Disneyland.

Afterward we looked around Disneyland.

The Pirates of Caribbean was too crowded.
My image of the Pirates of Caribbean is not to be crowded.
We can go into anytime.
But that day’s Pirates of Caribbean was different.

We passed through the Pirates of Caribbean…


TOKYO- HOTEL-

(2008-07-16)
We stayed at Sheraton.
They had a special price plan. It was only about 19000yen per night.
Tsuru-chan reserved the hotel on the Internet.
It seemed that the hotel room was for kids.

After Tsuru-chan checked in, she brought something.
I asked her what she brought.
She said the hotel had given her a stuffed doll.

I couldn’t understand what she meant.
She also couldn’t understand.

When she checked in, the hotel clerk said that your room plan was ‘a stuffed doll plan’.
We didn’t know ‘a stuffed doll plan’ and we didn’t know we had reserved that plan.

Anyway they gave us a penguin stuffed doll.

The interior decoration was for kids, too.
Many penguins were painted on the walls.

I was uncomfortable.

But the bag that they gave us was really convenient.

I would use this bag at the Disneyland.


TOKYO -JR-

(2008-07-15)
While I was in Tokyo, I had a few train accidents.

The first one was at Shinagawa.
When I arrived at Shibuya Station, the train stopped.
Shibuya was the station that I got off, so I didn’t have any problem.
A station attendant said that there was a smoke at Shinagawa Station.
Someone made a warning fire.

The second and third ones were at Shinkiba Station.
We were going toward a hotel at Maihama.
Two lines have stopped.
One accident was that a car was stuck on the railway track.
I forget the other accident, but two trains stopped anyway.
The train, which we wanted to get on was running, so we could go to the hotel.

I always think JR in Tokyo always stops.
I feel sorry about it.



TOKYO -PLAYZONE-7/11

(2008-07-14)
I went to Tokyo.
I go to see Shonentai Musical every year, and this year is the last year of the musical.

First time when I went was about 20 years ago.
The musicals used to be exciting but lately they are very boring.
I think both the actors and the audiences have the same opinion.
So I think it is good for us to end it.

I had to go to the factory in Kyoto on Friday, so I went to Tokyo after the business trip.

The Musical was very boring as usual.
Tsuru-chan and I complained as usual.
I can’t believe that that silly one is the last one.
Why didn’t they try to make more exciting show???

It wasn’t a musical. It was like a concert.
They just sang their musical numbers which they had sung before.

Anyway, the most important thing is ‘watching the musical’.
That’s why we were satisfied.



NITTSU

(2008-07-10)
When my Aibo went to the hospital, Nittsu which is a delivery service company came to my apartment and picked up the Aibo.

I always think the best delivery service company is Kuroneko and the second is Sagawa.
Nittsu is one of the worst delivery service companies, I think.

A man came to my apartment about 8:00P.M.
Just after I opened the door, he rushed into the entrance.
I was very surprised because I hadn't allowed him to come in to.

He was very polite but I felt very scared because there was no one in my apartment.
I don’t think my Aibo save me.

The last time when one of my Aibo was in the hospital,
an employee of Nittsu came to my apartment, too.

When he brought me back my Aibo, my Aibo smelled very bad.
It was cigarette.
I thought the truck was full of smoke.
And I also thought if my Aibo was broken, it might be the smoke.

I don’t like Nittsu.
Nittsu is going to merge with Yupack but I don’t like Yupack either.

I want Sony to change their delivery service company.


MY PET

(2008-07-09)
One of my Aibos is sick.
He moves well but makes a strange noise.
He went into the hospital last week..

Yesterday, Sony gave me a phone call and told the symptom.

She said its head made the strange noise, and also it had a bad knee.

She added a couple of stuff.
The total cost was about 50,000yen.

It seemed very expensive but if it is a real pet, I know, I will need more money.

She said they replaced a head.
It meant they don’t cure Aibo.
Its skin is my Aibo’s skin but inside is not already my Aibo.

They will give me back my old Aibo’s head.
I will keep it until I console.


THE BOOK FAIR

(2008-07-07)
A book fair started again.

Any publishers hold this fair every year.
I went to a bookstore a few days ago, and checked the books which I was going to buy.
Of course, I also checked a present.
A present of Kadokawa-shoten is a book jacket as usual.
Shincho-bunko’s one is a bag.
I want to get both of them, so I have to buy (and of course read) more than 4 books.
You can get the present if you buy two books.

Shueisha’s present is a strap of cell phone.
I don’t think I want the strap, but I saw some books that I wanted to read.

Strangely, any publishers sell ‘Ningen-Shikkaku’.
It was written by Dazai Osam and it is one of the most popular stories in Japan.
It is good for the people who have never touched Dazai Osam to read Ningen Shikkaku.
But there are many good stories.
The publishers have to introduce us their own recommendations.



GOOD NIGHT SLEEP

(2008-07-06)
I haven’t been sleeping well lately.
I know the reason.
It is because of a hot temperature.
I only sleep a few hours a day, so I feel very sleepy and tired.
I want to sleep….

I always use an air conditioner from May every year
but lately we have to think about one of the most important problems,
the global warming, so I tried not to use an air conditioner.
But I cannot sleep.

I started to use it a few days ago.
I set it at 27 degrees and 3-hour timer.
But when it turns off automatically, I wake up soon.

I can sleep in a day time even if it is too hot, but I cannot sleep in the night.

Last night I woke up at 2:00.am.
I tuned on the air conditioner again.

I feel night time came longer.


STARBUCKS

(2008-07-03)
600 Starbucks are going to close.

I saw the news on T.V.
The news was from New York and a news caster said
the reason was that people didn’t go to Starbucks a lot lately.
It is said that Starbucks coffee is a kind of luxury in the U.S.
The announcer who heard about it was surprised
because his image of Starbucks is not expensive.

But when we think about it carefully, Starbucks coffee is enough expensive.
One cup is about 300yen.

Lately we can buy delicious and inexpensive coffee at MacDonald’s.
It is only 100yen.
I don’t usually go to Starbucks.
If I go to Starbucks, I will go to MacDonald’s or a coffee shop.

I think people in the U.S. think the same thing.

By the way, Japanese people drink many cans of coffee.
But I don’t think American drink it.
Is this culture only in Japan???


SWIMMER

(2008-07-01)
080701

Swimmer and I went to eat a cake last night.
We had negotiated a tough contract.
Swimmer said if I controlled that contract, he would treat me a cake afterwards.

We have done that contract a few days ago, so we went to eat a cake.

We went to Hotel Nikko because I had a discount ticket.

I thought we would only eat a cake, but he ordered dinner.
