Happy Dad Sunday

Hello, Kon-nichiwa!

It was raining all day long on Saturday. But Sunday we had sunshine a little between raining but very humid though... i went to see my Dad and celebrated happy father's day with my husband. It was later 1-week though...

We call to dad 'Otosan'

In fact, my Otosan is brave man because he is a survivor and  a soldier in his cancer himself. Oh we are very blessed!!! How can i express to gratitude of this great thing !!!!

I brought this very charming hibiscus flower pots for Dad.
Seems they are as if smiling :)

And beer beer beer with cheerful
we had a lot of laughs and talking with very fun!!!!

..and a wonderful summer shirt for gift.
Hey!!..good-looking? :)

..anyway Japanese people always do not say 'I love you' each other in our family especially, because it is our custum.
Japanese people are mostly shy. Of course we are always thinking about each other deeply just the bottom of heart ourselves.
However I dare to say 'thank you and I love you,Otosan' though my blog...heehee:))  thanks Blog Land :D


Thank you for visiting today!!
Have a lovely week and enjoy!!

Do you knowCool Biz..?

Not sure you know 'Cool Biz' because it might be a Japanese-English

 We also  have 4 seasons here. Our temperature is turning into Summer.
The Japanese Ministry of the Environment (MOE) began advocating the Cool Biz campaign in summer 2005 as a means to help reduce electric consumption by limiting use of air conditioning.

According to the Environment Ministry, central government ministries were:
to set air conditioner temperatures at 28°C until September.

The Cool Biz dress code advises workers
to starch collars so they stand up and to wear trousers made from materials that breathe and absorb moisture.
Additionally, workers are encouraged to wear short-sleeved shirts without jackets or ties.

Many workers, though, were confused about whether they should follow the new stipulations—many came to work with their jackets in hand and their ties in their pockets. Even those who liked the idea of dressing more casually sometimes became self-conscious during their commutes when they were surrounded by non-government employees who were all wearing standard business suits. Many government workers said they felt it was impolite not to wear a tie when meeting counterparts from the private sector.

All of the government leaders practiced Cool Biz. Prime Minister Koizumi was frequently interviewed without a tie or jacket, and this produced a significant advertising effect.

So recently Cool Biz is getting to exprole not only public offices but also most of companies, department stores ,super-markets...

They excuse not to wear to customers politely before that.

Students used to change to summer uniforms in June.
And also mothers used to change cool colours (or summery)at home and to prepare summer wears in the closet or drawers :)

Today my husband  did wear in Cool Biz, too!!

How do you think about?

Have a nice week!
