Talk about Universe

Just interesting to talk about the planet ot universe.
I've just recieved email from Floss about last my post. and also i got some imformations from  japanese friends who study the planet very well.

i took the photo above last evening ,you know.
So it seems  that it's Jupiter not Venus so far
Firstly i thought it's Venus,
because it was so shining.

At this time
the moon and Venus and Jupiter
become very closer together.

I took this  unusual photo above last year.
( 2,December.2008)
Pls enlarge the photo.
Looks  smile mark,isnt it? Funny!!:)
The moon and Venus and Jupiter rendezvous!!

Why don't you look up the dark sky tonight with me?
We are far away but live on the earth.


I took this photo of half moon and venus star this evening. they looks so friendly and feels something warmful. LOVELY dont they?

Also surprisingly, Floss's son took the same moon and Venus. And she wrote the fact on her blog today. Floss lives in UK i live in Japan. huuum...




We were gathering at Shabu-shabu restaurant for my birthday celebrations.

Shabu-Shabu is a Japanese dish that is very popular overseas

People take the beef out as soon as its color changes and eat it dipped in their favorite sauce, such as soy sauce with citrus juice or sesame sauce.


Where my years gone?!

I am most grateful to my family.

Thanks  Yxxx...

What Time Is It Now?

I just put the clock on my sidebar. because I'm not sure YOUR time.
You cant miss it.
Please tell me ;
What time is it now?

Thank you:)



History of...

I heard that it's booming of learning history among young girls in japan recentely. They adore of hero in those days-you know Samurai or Bushi.

530yrs ago,it was Muromachi-Period in japan. Samurai bushi fighten in a great struggle each other in order to control small land.

you might like the Kinkakuji temple built in those days. The tenple is covered with gold leaf so much. Very gorgeous!

By the way,i bought sweets in Kyoto before. I'm sure this is a kinda  tough and thin cookie or biscuit. Amazingly the store standed in the 15 century-for about 530yrs ago.Very long standing.

Basically the shop deal with soba.
Do you know soba? :)
Soba is made from this plant.  Soba is made of soba floor.
(Fagopyrum esculentum)
And another recipe, you might know  'galette' in France

The picture shows us the woman  making soba. Seems to cut with  a big knife.It is almost similar to make pasta,isnt it?


Face Font in Japanese?

So I'm not sure if you know face fonts as follows; for example
  (*^_^*) smile
 (ー_ー)!! angry or annoy
 (^o^) laugh with fun or pleasure
 (T_T) cry,sad,poor 
  (>_<) pain or something


Japanese email- we  use Japanese two-byte characters.  We believe that Japanese language sometimes misunderstand even japanese ourselves at reading-particularly short sentense. We need to pay attentions writing emails.Truly we dont want to make misunderstanding each other. So that it depens on case by case, we usually use face fonts at the end of sentense. just email or mobile mail between friends or family.
But never use at work and official of course.

anyway, you already remeber Kawaii (Japanese) -pretty,cute,

"Kawaii (*^_^*)”

On writing in Japanese;
When you say   'Glad to ...' 
we say 'Ureshii!!'(Japanese)   add to (^o^)
when you say ' I enjoy...'  we say 'Tanoshii!!'(Japanese)
 we use (^o^)or\(^o^)/  

but not exactly rule

I guess that face fonts can help to express our emotions more to others how we feel clearly.

Do you have any face fonts of one-byte characters?
