How to Slay your Self-Introduction in Japanese!

Nao-chan’s going to meet his dad. I would like to meet him in person too but it’s impossible since I’m here in Manila and also I can’t skype them since it was a weekday, and I was pretty busy at that time. So I just decided to make video message for his father. I introduced myself.

 

Well it’s not easy. I think in Japanese there are so many ways to introduce yourself, but it depends on the situation:

So So Hot…… Cool Music Suchmos

Hello, Hello,

It’s so hot here in Tokyo..

I think Manila as well.
Maybe much hotter.

After getting through cold cold winter, why I have to endure this scorching heat comes up from asphalt road.

I want to dive into Manila Ocean Park.
I rather want to be a Sealion.

Sealion

とてもあつい Totemo Atsui …….. very hot

I can’t hit upon a good idea with my already-melted brain.

That’s OK.

All I can do to cope with this hot summer is…..
listening to cool music (^◇^)♪♪

Lately in Japan, band called Suchmos is very popular☆

I’m so happy every time I encounter good music, movie, people….

That’s how I keep my heart on fire in my life.

A Day at Manila Ocean Park

It’s been seven years since I visited Manila Ocean Park for a high school field trip. So I was excited to visit the place again, with Nao-chan this time.

Manila Ocean Park is the only aquarium in Philippines. Some people say it is not as big as other aquariums abroad (but who cares?!) There are so many beautiful sea creatures to see and there are many packages to choose from depending on your budget.

We chose the ‘Deep Sea Rush 6’. which costs 580 pesos. It wasn’t so crowded as we visited there on a weekday. (yey!)

Packing My Things

packing-things-high

 

I started packing things the day before Nao-chan’s arrival. At last! My parents allowed me to stay with him, I was really happy! Before, they never allowed it and I must be home before midnight~ And even though they let me be with Nao-chan, they kept on reminding me, “Aika, know your limitations!” or “Please, please don’t do things you are not allowed to do yet”. My ears are getting tired to hear them but of course, I also appreciate how they care for me. Nao-chan and I are very thankful to them, for their trust.

It took me one hour or two to pack my things and I was pretty indecisive when it comes to choosing what clothes to bring. I’d been packing and unpacking for a few times until I finally got satisfied with it. And my mom saw tons of  clothes on the bed and I don’t know why she was a bit worried about it! (^▽^)

Sketching at the Restaurant

drawing-at-a-restaurant-comic

 

So this is why I don’t want to draw at the restaurant sometimes because I’m really afraid someone could see it. Well if only I’m a master of sketching, I won’t be so shy and I’d love to work outside and let people peek in my legendary masterpiece. (^^;

 

During this time, I was in a small Japanese restaurant near my house and there are many customers and the lone waitress can’t notice me so for me not to waste time waiting I just got my notebook to draw for our New year’s greeting. I had been struggling (It’s my first time to draw a monkey, actually haha) since I can’t make it look adorable and cute.( 一一)

One Ok Rock Live in Manila, For the First Time!

Yesterday was one of the best days of my life~ ONE OK ROCK performed live in Manila!

 

It was like a miracle since most popular Japanese musicians rarely have a concert here. 4 months before the event, I was surprised when I found out they will perform in Philippines and I wondered if do they have lots of Filipino fans, then when I bought a ticket (about 4 days after the announcement) VIP tickets were already sold out! T__T Even the lower box seats near the stage were gone! Other fans were really quick~  Anyway my friend (Hello Glai~ haha) and I just got a seat in the left corner of lower box.
