Applause for Samurai Blue

What a match!!
Japan played much better than i expected

after 120 mins
PK is the only way to put a period to this match

personally PK is just not fair
but i guess you can't just let the match go on forever

Samurai Blue, well done! お疲れ様でした。

I proudly announced that
HiuKei's '1 day 100 yen' saving project have just started
can't wait to see my jar filled up with 100 yen coins next year around this time

these are a few of my favorite things~

when the dog bites, when the bee stints
when i'm feeling sad
i simply remember my favorite things
and then i won't feel so bad


white calla


lots of towers
(note: only towers in triangular shape)

cake...of course
even better when having it on a balcony or at an outdoor cafe

summer, which is coming very soon

Sound of Music is one of my fav childhood movie
watched it a dozen times
the part of them jumping on the bed and singing 'My favorite Things' is definitely one of my fav scene

what's in my head?

Perfurm 'ナッチュラルに恋して'

i have absolutely no idea why this song is stuck in my head

radio is P O W E R F U L

it slowly creeps into your mind

well, i like the choreography

it's so playful

as the tune

Not again?!?

i am not a political critics
so forgive me if i say anything irrelevant or inapproriate
this is, afterall, just my personal rant

ok...even if you are not living in Japan
i guess you have heard from the news that the current prime minister in Japan has resgined

yes, again
let see... a new one every year?

being prime minister is like a game?
a joke?

i thought they fought for the role
the moving speeches, the promises, the passion(?)
where have they gone?

'taking the responsiblity...'
'people are no longer willing to hear my words...'
that's the reason for resigning?

when they want to play the game
they stay
and when it's not going their way
they quit?!?

how are we going to teach the next generation the meaning of taking responsiblity?
tell me.

the resignation speech was so far the most well-spoken speech
how ironic is that?

my rant can go on forever
but i will stop
cos i will just become extremely bitter

they all got the easy way out
what shoud we, those who are directly effected by their little game, do?

they are here~

i dislike bugs and insects
except fireflies

june is the season when they are most active
once a year only
got to grasp all the chances i have this year

on my bike ride back home after English class tonight
i spot tiny sprinkles by the stream

'could it be?!?!'

i stopped the paddles
got off my bike

'YES!!!!!! They are here!!'

'hello little one
has it been a year?'
