DO NOT EAT TOO MUCH

(2011-02-27)
ecb1102230503001-p1.jpg
TANITA is going to sell a machine which measures ‘eating too much or not’.

Two hours after you eat dinner, you urinate on it.
It measures sugar in urine.

Scary….

Last night, I wanted to eat dinner in my apartment.
But beer took me into a dark side….
However, I drank a jug of beer….and I didn’t eat dinner in my apartment.

If this machine saves me, I will buy it.


But I think I need my strong power to save me from beer life…

RAMEN CLIFF

(2011-02-26)
R0012290.jpg
I went to ‘Ramen Cliff’.

I know the time when the restaurant opened.

It didn’t seem a ramen restaurant, so I felt very strange.

Since then, I have always made attention this restaurant.

I browsed at the internet several times and many people recommended this restaurant.

Finally, I went there.

I ordered ‘chicken taste ramen’.

It was…….

Not special……

It was a little salty for me.

The soup was OK. The noodles were OK. But that’s all.

It was NOT special….


I know other good ramen restaurants.

I don’t know why many people recommend this restaurant…

A STUPID STORY

(2011-02-24)
A man was arrested.
He touched a woman’s breast.

The man ran away.
The woman chased him.

When he ran away, he felt terrible backache, and then crouched down.

Finally, he was caught.

How do you think about this stupid story???



CARAMEL CONE

(2011-02-20)
Caramel Cone will reach the 40th anniversary.

Caramel cone is one of the most popular snacks in Japan.
I ate it often when I was a kid.
It is sweet and salty; so, many people probably cannot stop eating it if they start eating it once.

I still remember the CM song.

Hotohato is going to sell special packages of Caramel cone.
Japanese famous comic writers’ characters print on the packages.
They are Atom, Ninja-Hattori-Kun, Chibi-Maruko-Chan, and Ikeda-Riyoko.
They are not cute…. They are creepy….

Ummm….
Even if I like collecting these kinds of goods, I won’t buy these Caramel cone…

How about you????

WAKABA

(2011-02-18)
IMG_7273.jpg
I like walking.
I can find something new while walking.
For me, this ‘something new’ is always ‘food’.
I often find strange drink in a vending machine.
It is very interesting.

And of course, I can find new restaurants.

A few days ago, I went to an Italian restaurant, ‘Wakaba’.

I found this restaurant a few years ago but I had no chance to visit.
The restaurant doesn’t seem a restaurant.
It just seems a home….

Addition to this, it is not close to any stations.

So, if you don’t walk, it is very hard to find it.

The restaurant is not so big. There are a bar and a few tables.
Inside of the restaurant is very dark.

My friend and I ordered several dishes.

They cooked very slowly, so if you are very hungry, you shouldn’t go to that restaurant.

However, I like their pace.

They served each dish one by one. So, I had enough time to talk to my friend.

I also like their works.
They cooked very carefully. So, each dish was delicious, beautiful, and delicate.
I like their style.

I like an atmosphere of the restaurant.
If you want relax, it is a good choice to drink at that restaurant.

XXXXX

(2011-02-17)
I have gotten very bad stiff shoulders.
I have tooth-ache, too.
I don’t want to do anything because of terrible shoulder ache.

Hokaron(a disposable warmer) helps me a lot. I put Hokaron on my shoulder, then I feel my blood start to flow.

Howevery, it is not enough.
So, lately I put Salonpas(a plaster) on my shoulder.
I think it is much better.

I remembered when I was a kid.

My mother always put Salonpas on her neck and shoulder.
I couldn’t understand why she needed Salonpas.

But now, I understand her feelings.

I want someone who massages my shoulder….


愛しい骨

(2011-02-16)
I read ‘Bone by Bone’ written by Carol O'Connell.
This is a mystery.
A boy disappeared in a forest one day, and 20 years later, pieces of his bone were sent to his father.
Who sent his bones, and why?
And who is a criminal?
Sherlock Holmes is his elder brother.
So, this story wrote about not only a crime but also a family love.

I am not sure this story is interesting or not.
But I think this is a hurt warming story because his brother and his house keeper love him.

Lately, I sometimes read translated stories.
I didn’t usually read them.
My mother liked translated stories, so I think I may become like my mother.


HOW DO YOU WASH YOUR FACE?

(2011-02-15)
I sent many new-year-postcards this year as usual.
Then, one of my ex-co-workers sent a postcard back to me, and she wrote that this was her last new-year-card and would never send me.

I couldn’t understand what she wanted to say.
Afterwards, she sent me a box.
There were samples of cosmetics in the box.
I guess she started a new business.

I feel sorry about it because I am not interested in make-up.

Anyway, I used the cosmetics.
I don’t know they are special or not.

Only one thing that I can tell you is that a sponge for face soup is very convenient.

I knew that faces were very delicate and we shouldn’t wash our faces carelessly.
I heard the best way to wash our faces was wash with only foam.
It is to say that I make a bubble to be the most important.

I knew that. But I didn’t have a sponge for making foam.

But now I have a good one because there was a good sponge in the sample box.

Lately, I use the sponge and make form.
I feel I will be more beautiful…


MIHARA(三原)

(2011-02-14)
My favorite section of Asahi Newspaper is ‘Wagamachi-no-hanjyotei’.
Readers recommend their favorite restaurants, and then, Asahi Newspaper visits the restaurants for coverage.

I always check out the restaurants, and if I like the restaurants, I will cut out the news paper.

A few weeks ago, they introduced a steamed-foods restaurant.
The restaurant was not far from my office, so my co-worker and I visited there soon.

Their specialty for lunch is three flavor steamed rice.
Ground chicken, simmered short-necked clam with a ginger, and salmon are put on rice, and then steam.
It was very hot and tasty.
It was very cold day, so hot food made me, of course, hot.

There are many antique shops around that area, so the master bought many antique potteries and uses them at his restaurant.

Addition to this, they have many kinds of Japanese sake.
They also have many good dish for sake.

My co-worker and I said that we should visit the restaurant at night next time.

LAST YEAR...

(2011-02-13)
IMG_6098.jpg
2010, February 10th.
My co-worker, Potato head, fell down stairs at a station.
About two weeks later, he passed away.

His desk was just next to my desk.
So, we were talking everyday.
It was one of the worst news in my life.

On February 10th, my boss, my friend-Waku-chan, and I went to Robatayaki to drink.
Waku-chan was Potato head’s good frinend.
According to Waku-chan, Potato head liked that Robatayaki.

The restaurant was really cold.
However, all foods seemed very delicious.

First, we didn’t talk about Potato head, but after we drank, we started to talk about Potato head.
My bosses still regret his death because he was the last person who saw Potato head was still alive.

Potato head and his/my boss went to drink after work.
After they drank, they said good-bye at Kitahama station.

When Potato head was found at the station, he shed blood and he was unconscious.

My boss still thinks if he hadn't gone to drink….

Waku-chan and I didn’t have any words to give him.
What only we could do was that we were listening to his story.

*********************************************

By the way, it is really hard to find Robatayaki.
I want to go to that Robatayaki restaurant with my brother-in-law and show him Japanese culture.

Japanese Manga’

(2011-02-09)
Asahi Newspaper introduces ‘Global cultures’ once per two weeks.

This week, they wrote about ‘Japanese Manga’.

Manga is an international word, and I heard Manga was very popular in Europe, especially French.

This Manga has peaked.

Asahi interviewed some publishers.

A guy said that people had already eaten main dish before they ate appetizers.

Japan has a long history of Manga, and people know its joyless parts.
In addition to this, Japanese boys read magazines.
So, they know how to enjoy reading joyless Mangas.

However, European people and American people don’t know row-ride Manga.
So, after they read high quality Mangas, they can’t read row-ride Manga.

Another guy said that it was very difficult to select which Manga they were going to translate.
Even if the Manga was good sale in Japan, it wouldn’t be good sale in other countries.

They worry that Japanese Manga run out soon.


The person shines in music. -Love and classical music of the opposition=

(2011-02-08)
I read a book =The person shines in music. -Love and classical music of the opposition=.

This book says that the classical music after Beethoven is classified in Brahms group and Wagner group.

I’m not clear about classical music, so I couldn’t see what the author wanted to say.
He introduces characteristics’ and lives about many musicians.
It was very interesting for me.
Someone had many lovers, someone loved only one person, or

The most interesting thing is that any classical musicians categorized ‘Brahms group’ or ‘Wagner group’, even if they didn’t want to belong to each group.

For example, a guy respected Brahms, but he belonged to Wagner group because of his way to live.
It is very interesting.

One thing I can tell you is all of them respected ‘Beethoven’.

They liked Beethoven.
They wanted to become Beethoven,
And they wanted to beyond Beethoven.

Since I read this book, I bought two classical music CDs.
They don’t bother me, so I enjoy listening.

I wasn’t interested in classical music.
I think books can change human’s life.



YAOCHO

(2011-02-07)
The sumo world has been thrown into confusion because of ‘Yaocho’.
Some sumo wrestlers lose their fights by themselves because of some reasons.

The origin of Yaocho came from sumo, so it is not strange even if they do Yaocho.

My dictionary says Yaocho is ‘a put-up fight’ in English.

English and Japanese are sometimes very interesting.

I sometimes think ‘What does it say in English’.

For example, Tako-Ashi.
Tako –Ashi is ‘octopus legs’.
But there are two means (or more?) in Japan.
The other mean is that an item when we use to dry laundries.
What is it called in English?
Or there is no Tako-Ashi in U.S.???

‘Book worm’ is ‘book worm’.
I expect that one day Japanese translated directly.

Anyway, a history of each word is very interesting.
I want to be interested in Japanese, Chinese, and English words’ histories.


FLYING PIGS

(2011-02-03)
R0012265.jpg
A few weeks ago, when I went to a hospital to see Swimmer, he gave a box of chocolate.
Those chocolates were pigs and they had wings.

According to Swimmer, a flying pig is a symbol of happiness.
I don’t know the reason why.

I know a film ‘A deep red pig(紅の豚)’ directed by Miyazaki Hayao.
I didn’t know why he had made ‘a flying pig story’, but I thought one of the reasons might be ‘a symbol of happiness’.

Anyway, even if chocolate is a ‘pig’ or not, a good chocolate is a good chocolate.
Of course, they were really good tastes.


Lucie Rie

(2011-02-02)
I went to see ‘Lucie Rie -A Retrospective-’.
Lucie is a potter born in Austria in 1902(-1995).
She started to study art in 1920. At that time, she learned paintings, but afterwards, she would be interested in pottery.
As almost all of the artists, her works hasn't found acceptance, but afterwards, her works became very popular.

I knew her but I haven’t seen her works well.

Her works are wonderful.
She invented some techniques, and of course she used her techniques for her works.
The surfaces of potteries are sometimes rough and sometimes smooth.
Some of her works are very colorful, and some of her works are very chic.

Her most famous technique is ‘a pottery with thin lines’.
She scratched each line by thin iron needle.
She didn’t use any guides, so she made those lines by her sense.

The museum was very crowded.
I sometimes visit this museum but it is always not so crowded.
I didn’t know Mrs. Rie was so popular like that.

I saw a TV show about her made in England at the museum.
She is very cute woman.

Making potteries is very interesting because each artist will never know until they take out their works from ovens.
I think it is the biggest interest making pottery.
