GOOD-BYE TSUBASA

(2009-06-30)
090630
TSUBASA is going to retire.

Tsubasa is a name of Shinkansen which runs in Tohoku area.

Tsubasa is a little different from a normal Shinkansen.

First, it is smaller than a normal Shinkansen.

Second, it can attach a normal Shinkansen.

Third, it runs on a normal train track(Shinkansen usually runs on its own track).


I really like Tsubasa because its design is cool!!!
It seems like an airplane.
An interesting thing is that you can see Shinkansen passes through a railroad crossing.
It is really rare!!!

Unfortunately, I have no chance to get on Tsubasa.
I mean if I go to Tohoku, I take an airplane.

I am really sad and I think many train mania feel sad, too.

SASAKI NANAE SAN

(2009-06-29)
Sasaki Nanae – san has passed away.

She was a marathon runner and I think she is the most contributory person for woman’s marathon in Japan.

When she started a marathon, it wasn’t common.
I saw her on T.V. many times and I was proud of her.
When she got a good prize, I felt happy as I did it by myself.

Arimori Yuuko, Q-chan, and other marathon runners followed her.
So, I think they didn’t succeed without Sasaki Nanae-san.

I heard the death of her is a colorectal cancer.

I think this cancer is really popular lately, Swimmer, another co-worker, my sister’s friend, and Sasaki Nanae-san.

May her soul rest in peace.


MOMO-CHAN'S CLOCK

(2009-06-28)
Momo-chan’s clock

I used Momo-chan’s clock.
Momo-chan is a mascot character of Post Pet.
It worked really well, and there was no noise as ‘ticktack’, so I really liked it.

But a couple of weeks ago, I kicked it, so it was broken…
Lately, I wake up without an alarm clock, but I want to check the time when I wake up in a middle of the night.

I’m going to buy a new one today.
But I don’t know if I buy it or not…

SHI IS MOMO-CHAN!!!


sasai eisuke san

(2009-06-27)
I saw a TV show ‘an extra lesson’.
An executive man/woman visits his/her alma mater and teaches his/her junior fellows.

Last week’s teacher is Sasai Eisuke. He is an actor and I’m really interested in him.
I really like his performance and his policy.

He taught Japanese etiquettes, Japanese dance, and acting.

He said the reason that we had to learn manners was the manners made our relationships smooth.

He said the etiquette wasn’t ‘must’, but very important.

He taught Japanese dance and acting very well.
I could see the students’ feelings were changing.
He didn’t teach ‘how to dance’ or ‘how to act’.
He taught them imaginations.

I could see his personality in the show.
And I became I liked him more and more.



AN ITALIAN RESTAURANT

(2009-06-27)
090627
There is a good Italian restaurant close to my office.

I have passed through the restaurant every morning, but I haven’t been there before.

Lately, a woman who works there greets me every morning, so I thought I wanted to visit there.

I ate lunch.
And it was really good!!

I ate an Italian sandwich.
They use fresh vegetables and high quality raw ham.
I also ate a beef cooked with red wine.
It was well cooked and very soft.

The restaurant is in a retro building and the building is really famous; you can see it on a guide book.

They have a good evening menu, so I want to visit there after work.

SNOODLE

(2009-06-26)
SNOODLE
USJ is going to sell ‘Snoodle’.
It is just a Snoopy cup noodle.
It is really cute! I want it!!
But if I want to buy it, I have to go to USJ…

It is a really good and convenient souvenir, I think.

USJ also has a spider man cup noodle.

I think any Japanese really like cup noodles!!

A DICTIONARY CARD

(2009-06-25)
I bought a French dictionary card.
Latest electric dictionary has a card slot and you can adapt a dictionary card.

Cards are expensive. My one is 8500yen!!!
However, it is cheaper than buying a new electric dictionary.

The card isn’t so bad.
It has some contents :French to Japanese, Japanese to French, English to French, French to English, and conversations for travel.
It is not bad, but a quality of dictionary isn’t so good.
I cannot find some word which I want to see.
And it doesn’t have enough examples, so I sometimes have to see a paper dictionary.

If I work hard, I want to buy a new electric dictionary, but I don’t think I continue to study so long.
I mean I have no sense of French.

Anyway, it is convenient to learn English and French.



ROBINSON

(2009-06-24)
09062201

My section had a party at an Italian restaurant, Robinson, a couple of weeks ago..

This time, I and the restaurant adjusted the dishes.
First the restaurant proposed their idea, and then I added my idea.
It was really exciting.
Their offer wasn’t bad, but I reduced some plates and asked them to change some foodstuffs.
And I also offered that I wanted to eat a rich dessert.

The dishes were great draw for my co-workers but drinks were not so good.
I drank a glass of wine and some cocktails.
All of them were a little watery…

I am an organizer of my section until I resign.
I have already decided a next restaurant.

I can’t wait!!

czuco

(2009-06-23)
I went to a Peru restaurant, ‘czuco’.

I have no image of Peru, so I don’t know that the interiors of czuco are Peru like.
A place mat is handmade and introduces Peru.
Then I realized that I don’t know anything about Peru.

The taste of all foods is homey. I felt as if I had a grandmother in Peru.
My favorite one is ‘CARAPULCRA’.
It is a dried potato and chicken stew. The taste of it is really simple and I felt as if I have eaten it before (of course, it was my first time.)

Peru coffee is very thick. I add hot water on it.
They gave us brown sugar, and it is really good for thick coffee.

They aren’t spicier than I expected.
I’m not sure the taste of cuzco is Peru taste.
But you can feel you are in Peru in Osaka.

POLLO A LA BRASA : GRILED CHICKEN
CARAPULCRA : DRIED POTATO AND CHICKEN STEW
ARROZ CONLECHE : RICE AND MILK DESSERT
HUMITA : CORN AND MILK DESSERT

YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!!

(2009-06-21)
A NEW CAR OF KEIHAN
A new car of Keihan Railway won ‘the Laurel award’, the best design of the year,

Tetsudou-no-tomo is a fan club of train.
If you make an application for admission, you can get some information and monthly magazine.
And you can vote ‘the Blue Ribbon Award’.

The Laurel award is chosen by the executive committee of Tstudou-no-tomo.

I like a train but I’m not a train freak, so I don’t know the differences between the Blue Ribbon Award’s value and the Laurel Award’s value.
The new car of Keihan is cool, so I can agree that it won the prize.

It is a big news for me because I don’t have a car, so Keihan Railway is my private car.


ICHIRAN

(2009-06-20)
090620-1
I went to a ramen restaurant, ‘Ichiran’.
A beautician always recommends me to go there.

Ichiaran is a very famous ramen restaurant and its original restaurant is located in Fukuoka.
Its system is a little strange.
There are screens between all of the seats. So even if you go to Ichiran with your friends, you can’t talk to them.
You have to choose topping ingredients , garlic, green onions, roast pork, etc.


And you have to decide that hardness of noodle.

The noodle is really good but soup is very thick.
I was sick after I ate.

I don’t think it is the best ramen…
I prefer Ippudo.

SOMETHING WRONG...

(2009-06-19)
Lately, my constitution has changed.

I used to have bad allergies of metallic, pollen, and ultraviolet rays.
So, I couldn’t wear a watch, a necklace, a short sleeved T-shirt, and had to wear a mask.

Lately, it doesn’t seem so bad.
So, I can wear a metal watch, a necklace, a short sleeved one-piece, and don’t have to wear a mask in spring.

It is a really good sign.
But I haven’t changed anything in my daily lives.
I don’t know why my constitution has changed…

I am worried that when my bad constitution will come back to me…


A WHITE GOAT

(2009-06-18)
A WHITE GOAT
How do you dispose of secret documents?
You probably use a paper shredder.

Nakabayashi is going to sell a new machine, ‘a white goat’.

After you feed paper to a ‘White goat’, it bears toilet paper.
40 A4-sized sheets become one toilet paper and its price is 9,000,000yen.

Then I remembered my childhood.

When I was a kid, a recycle service drove around our town.
They picked up old news paper and gave us some toilet paper.

‘A white goat’ is a new type of ‘a recycle service’.

I hope my company is interested in this machine.
I want to see it.


冷煎

(2009-06-16)
Yesterday’s manner lesson is how to pour iced Japanese tea.
It is called ‘rei-sen(冷煎)’.

My image of iced Japanese tea is like barley tea, but rei-sen is completely different.

The process of pouring tea is almost same as normal Japanese tea.
Only one biggest difference is that we use two pots.
We put some block of ice cubes in a pot.
We make hot tea the other pot, and pour the tea to the ice cubes’ pot.

I thought we used a glass, but we use a small size teacup.
I have seen this teacup but I didn’t know the teacup was used for.

The process is really interesting.
If I have a chance, I want to show you.


FIRE!!

(2009-06-15)
When I went to work today, I smelled something burning.

Many neighborhoods were standing outside.

Fire!

A house has disappeared.

I was really surprised because I couldn’t hear a fire-engine siren.

People were pale and some of them couldn’t stand up by their own feet.
I don’t know if someone died or not.

Fortunately, the house has been burnt out but the houses of next door are safe.

A fire burns not only their house but also their memories.


TODAY'S WEATHER

(2009-06-14)
A week ago, I heard strange news.

“Today’s weather was tadpoles.”

According to Asahi News Paper, many tadpoles were falling in Hokuriku area.
It is said that a tornado carried tadpoles, but nobody knows.

Swimmer regrets that he couldn’t help them.
He likes a frog.

A few days ago, I saw other news.
It said that that day’s weather was small fishes.

I don’t know why.

網戸張替え!

(2009-06-13)
Have you ever set up a mosquito screen?

I tried last weekend!!!

The old screen has gotten a hole.

I haven’t set up it by myself before, but if I asked an agency, I thought I have to pay more than 5000yen.
I browsed at an Internet.
Then many people did it by themselves, so I decided to do it by myself.

I bought a mosquito screen and equipment for setting up a mosquito screen.
At the store, I could watch a DVD, ‘how to set up a mosquito screen.

Just after I came home, I tried it soon.

I cut out a mosquito screen, and put it on a frame by a packing tape.

Then, I pushed a rubber in the frame with a mosquito screen.

I needed about 30 minutes to do this.
I couldn’t do as a professional, but it is not too bad.

I want to try one more time.
I think next time I can do this better.

If you need my help, please let me know!!!



HOW ABOUT MR. HASHIMOTO?

(2009-06-12)
Mr. Higashikokubari is the governor of Miyazaki Prefecture but he used to be a comedian.

Since he became the governor, many shops in Miyazaki have sold his character goods.
I think he is the most profitable governor in Japan.

This is a souvenir from one of my co-workers, Strawberry Norse.
When he went to Miyazaki for a business trip, he bought it.

It is refreshing. It is good to drink after taking bath.
However, I have drunk the one which is a similar taste before.

Over all, the most important thing is a printed picture of Mr. Higashikokubau.
Because it is a souvenir for visitors.

AOJIRU

(2009-06-11)
Have you ever drunk ‘Aojiru’?
It is made with vegetables.

The most famous Aojiru maker is ‘Kyusai’.
Its T.V. commercial film is very very famous, because after a man drank down aojiru, he said, “It’s terrible! But one more.”

I have drunk it once before.
It was really terrible as I heard.

Since them I haven’t drunk Aojiru any more.
I am healthy enough even though I don’t drink Aojiru.

Lately, I got some samples of Aojiru.
I didn’t want to drink but I couldn’t throw out.

A couple days ago, I drank it.
I wasn’t more terrible than I thought.
It is like green tea.
I think I can drink it.
It is not worth drinking buying it.

OTOEMON

(2009-06-10)

Otoemon is a sweet shop in Fukuchiyma city.
I heard their sweets were really good, I wanted to eat them once.

I have visited Fukuchiyama several times, but I couldn’t go there without a car.

Lately, my company magazine picked up Otoemon, so some co-workers buy Otoemon’s sweets.

Mr. Swimmer sent me them a month ago.

They were really delicious.
Chestnuts were still covered with astringent skin, so it added a bitter taste on a very sweet cake.
cakes were moist and texture was springy.

I’m really happy.

But one of my friends gets some (or a lot of) weights lately.
I don’t want to follow her, so I have to take care of myself…

SATSUMA KIROKO

(2009-06-09)
Have you ever seen Satsuma Kiriko.
Satsuma Kiriko is a cut-glass.
I wasn’t interested in it before, but when I saw it in Satsuma(Kagoshima), my heart was stolen by Satsuma Kiriko.

After I returned to Osaka, I looked at Satsuma Kirikos, but there aren’t enough selections.

Kobe City Museum is going to hold ‘A glittering interlude; Visions of Satsuma Kiriko’.

I checked out the web site.
They were really beautiful.
I have to go to!!!
Going to Kobe City Museum is most important job now!!



A BIG SURPRISE

(2009-06-08)
I met my old friend at the Yodoyabashi Station.
It was a big surprise for me.
She was my high school classmate and we went to see rock music concerts often.
I couldn’t find any differences between now and her youth.
She said she still went to see rock concerts.
That‘s why she seems still young.

She quit lately, but she has been learning French for 2years and half.
What a coincidence!!!
I’m thinking I’m going to learn French.

It was a short meeting, but memorable.



MENTAIKO

(2009-06-06)
I have many many favorite foods.
I LOVE eating!!!

One of my favorite foods is Karashi-mentaiko.
When I eat Karashi-mentaiko, I feel I am really happy to be born in Japan!
However, Karashi-mentaiko is sometimes really dangerous! Because I can NOT stop eating ‘rice with Karashi-mentaiko’.

I usually buy Fukuya’s mentaiko. I think it is the most delicious mentaikos.
Some people who live in Fukuoka say that there is more delicious mentaiko, but I haven't eaten such a delicious mentaiko. I tried several or more mentaiko but Fukuya’s mentaiko is still most delicious.

Lately, Fukuya raised the price of mentaiko.
I used to buy for 3150yen/600g, but it is 3780yen/600g!!!
It is too expensive.
So, I don’t buy lately.

A couple of months ago, I bought Karashimentaiko at Kyushu food fair, but it wasn’t so good.
All in all, buying at Fukuya is a stress-fee way to eat mentaiko.

A NEW FRIDGE

(2009-06-05)
I’m thinking that I buy a fridge because mine makes a strange noise.

Last weekend, I went to Yodo(ya)bashi Camera.
There were many fridges and almost all of them were really big.
I don’t need such a big size fridge, so I looked around to find small ones.

I found small ones at a corner of the floor.
They are cheaper than big size fridge, but energy expenditure is higher than big size one.

The most surprising thing is that overhead cost is too high: a delivery cost, a recycle cost, a cost to carry from the first floor to the third floors, etc.
The total cost is about 10,000yen!!!

I thought I had to find a cheapest overhead cost shop.



Many Many fans

(2009-06-03)
After I wrote yesterday’s topic, I bloused at some comments of ‘a two-tank washing machine’ fans.

These are the reason which they like a two-tank washing machine.

1. Cleanliness: The inside of full-auto washing machine gets moldy. This moldy makes our laundry dirty.

2. Simple mechanic: It means a two-tank washing machine is break-proof.

3. Detergency: The power of detergency of a two-tank one is higher than a full-automatic one.

4. Amount time of detergency: The detergency time of a two-tank one is shorter than a full automatic one.

Some electric makers still make a two-tank washing machine.
It means there are many(or some) fans of a two-tank washing machine still there.



IF

(2009-06-02)
If my washing machine dies, I will buy a full automatic washing machine!!!

I decided it a long time ago.
But it is really fine now.

I talked to my friends about it, so they said they wanted to buy a two-tank washing machine next time.
They said a two-tank washing machine was more convenient than a full automatic washing machine.

Is it true??

A two-tank washing machine is sometimes really convenient.
For example, when I wash a bath mat or a kitchen mat, I always use the second washing water. I don’t think I have to use new detergent water.
But if I use a full-automatic washing machine, I can’t do this.
A two-tank washing machine is really flexible.

However, a full-automatic one washes while I sleep.

It is also really convenient!

Which opinion do you agree???
