Cat Cafe

I’ve never had a cat at home.   Just from my curiosity,  I visited a cat cafe near my house.   There were about ten pedigreed cats in the cafe and they were so cute!!!   It was very nice place to relax playing with cats.

Ritmos Dance Lesson

I go to the gym for my daily workout.  One of my favorite lessons is a dance fitness “Ritmos” there. The pictures are here.   Ritmos consists of eleven different kinds of dances such as Hip Hop, Latin, Jazz, Reggaeton, and so on in an hour.  The songs used in it are all popular and so cool.   They change every three months.  Now my most favorite song in it is “Bailando”.  I like Sean Paul ❤

 

My Purikura Photo

When I went to karaoke last month, the shop gave me a free ticket of playing “Purikura”. Purikura is an instant photo booth and normally placed in the game center. I took my pictures by the machine and they made me surprise. The pictures are different from real me! They are far more young and cute. All wrinkles and spots were disappeared because I was lit up from all angles. In addition, it seems that the lines of my face was edited too. I don’t want to show you my before-after photo here, so let me give you other people’s examples.

I don’t think my purikura photos have a big difference like these.   If you are interested in them, check out my Twitter account.

Photoshop software can edit as you like too.   Examples Where Photoshop Makes Pics Better      Don’t believe everything you watch!

Transformers

I went to the movie “Transformers: Age of Extinction” this month.   It was the first time for me to watch this series.   In the movie, some unknown words and names came up.   Therefore I couldn’t follow the story enough, but enjoyed it.   I’m a little hooked on the various transforming scenes.    Why don’t you watch  them?

 

 

Join and Leave

Two hamsters joined our family a few months ago.  My daughter was eager to have a pet.   So I thought a small one would be nice to take care of.    We bought two one-month-old hamsters at a pet store.  They were both male, of course.   If they were a breeding pair,  we would be troubled by a lot of baby hamsters.   At first, I let them live in the same cage, but one of them wasn’t active.  The other one ran around energetically.   I thought they weren’t getting along well and bought another cage to keep them apart.  However,  the inactive one died soon after this.  The active one is still alive.   It is said that the lifetime of hamsters is only two years.  How short!

On the other hand, my daughter is leaving home.  She was accepted to a college which is located far away from home.   Recently I’ve been busy for helping her move.   In Japan, the new school year starts in April, not September.  I think spring is a good season to start something.   I wish her good luck with her new life!

Rice-Cake Making By Firefighters

Hello, everyone.   It’s been a while.   How did you spend your holiday season?   I hope that you’ll find hapiness and success in 2014.    For Japanese, New Year’s day is more important than Christmas.    Till the end of the year, we clean our house and prepare “osechi” the special dishes for the coming year.   On New Years,  we eat osechi foods with family and relatives.   One of New Year’s foods is “zoni” vegetable soup.   Japanese eat “mochi” rice cakes boiled in zoni on New Year’s Day.    Not only that, we eat mochi with ground soybean, or sugar and soy sauce, in winter.

Near the end of the year, I happened to see rice-cake making (pounding boiled rice into mochi) festival by firefighters when I went to a shopping mall.   Firefighters served rice cakes out to shoppers.  Besides, they were giving a chance of riding a fire ladder truck to them.
