FAQ of the week

i think i have been asked for more than 10 times this week...
and have been getting the same response everytime

'HiuKei, why aren't you back for Olympics?!?!'

'hmm...' (smile) 'I want to but it's far...'

'Isn't it in Canada?'

''s in Canada but Montreal is far from Vancouver...'

'How far?'

'It takes about 6 hrs...'

'By car?'

' flight'

'WHAT?!?! 6 hrs flight?!? 3 hrs time differences??WOW!!!!!! How does that work?'

'... ...'

the concept of how big Canada is sometimes just doesn't seem to be comprehended by the japanese

drop it down

it's completely ironic

i just typed a new post
which is about a list of things i have/want to do
because i am forgetful
and because there are just too many things going on

but when i clicked the 'publish post' button
there was something wrong with the connection
my post was deleted...

i guess
there is no point
for me
to drop everything down

pix from pixar
finally saw it in the theater yesterday
this movie is definitely on my Top 10 list...5 even!?
it's lovely, beautiful, funny, thoughtful, true, sweet, sad, powerful, encouraging, comforting...
i am running out of adjectives
but i highly recommand this movie to everyone
from young to old
Carl is definitely my role model
when i am in 70s (don't even know if i will live that long...hehe)
i want to be like him
