people often say to me
'HiuKei, you are always so happy!'

i politely reply 'thank you' and give them a big smile

when i was younger, i just thought that's my temperament
and i was proud to have such a 'good' temperament

however, i know now, it's not just temperament
it's because i have a loving Father
a Father though i can't see with my naked eyes
but i can feel so strongly in my heart

His love is steadfast
and He loves you more everyday because his love is new every morning

today, i was reminded again
'God will wipe every tear from (my) eyes and there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain' Rev 21:4

that is the reason why i am happy everyday

a poem about season

this is a poem written by a grade9 boy
it's in japanese but i will translated it into English

(i can't remember the orginal version of the poem completely but it was something like that)

summer is too hot
winter is too cold
fall is too cool
spring is just right~

when the japanese teacher and i read it, we couldn't help but cracked up so badly!!
both our reaction was " あたりまえじゃん~!(DUH!!!)"

a poem coming from a 15 years old boy
gosh...i don't know if you find it funny or not but it made my day!

there are other great ones too, here are the titles:
-the sign of youth: ACNE
-the sound of fried chicken

and i forgot...
i will ask the japanese teacher for a copy next time

birthday cakes

thank you!!!
i think it's the first time that i got 7 cakes for my birthday...


this is the pv of the song i blogged in the last post

learning japanese

trying to improve my japanese at work by lyrics

and i have found some nice lyrics through my studies..

part of a song by Mr. Children (yes, they appeared on my blog quite often...)

HERO by Kazutoshi Sakurai

「だいそれた 気持ちはない
 でも ヒーローになりたい
 ただ一人 君にとっての
 つまずいたり 転んだりするようなら

not a reckless thought
but i want to be a hero
a hero to you only
if you stumble or if you fall
tenderly, i will reach out to you

i don't need no superman
just as the lyrics
when you have someone who is willing to extend a helping hand when you need
you are fortunate
because you have a hero
a personal hero

i hope
i can be a hero too

Yukichi Fukuzawa (a japanese writer, translator, author, teacher, entrepreneur and political theorist in Meji period)
his picture is printed on japanese 10 thousand yen bill

so why am i talking about him?
well, he has the same birthday as me!
it's the joy of my day to realize that i has the same birthday as someone who is famous and powerful and so intelligent.

i don't know if i will be as influential as him...(probably not)
and i don't dream about having my face printed on the 10000yen bill or the $100CAN bill
but i pray that i won't fail the plan that God has for me

being 25
i am young (pea, you heard me!HA!)

110 is also the emergency number in japan
so, guys...feel free to call!
me, not the emergency line
