Learning Katakana

 

learning-katakana-test

I’m still quite having a difficulty in recognizing Katakana~ I don’t know why… Perhaps there are some Hiragana and Katakana characters that look similar? Just like the what before, i mistakenly read “re” (i said “shi”) I felt quite stupid since “shi” (し) is a hiragana, and it cannot be joined with Katakana! Well, I think i still have a long way to go to be fluent in Japanese -____-

Watching Japanese Karaoke Battle (カラオケバトル)

Hello Nao-chan,

Thank you for letting me watch on your TV. I enjoyed watching that Karaoke competition a lot! Too bad I was only able to watch the last contestant perform (-“-) but still okay since we watched Karaoke Battle (カラオケバトル) on YouTube!  I hope we can watch the whole episode of it~~ i am amazed how the singers are scored precisely. I really love seeing Kizuki Minami sing~

 

I remembered when we sang at the karaoke 😀 What if Nao-chan joined Karaoke battle? I think you can get a high score! Higher than Kizuki-san’s!

In Spring: Aika and Nao’s First-Ever Collaboration

We are actually art-oriented people. Taking photographs is his passion and mine is drawing and designing. So we are thinking that creating art together will be awesome. We came up of making a photo illustration and called it “In Spring”

Nao-chan has a lot of amazing photos. He even met a lot of prominent people and took their portraits. I actually felt a bit sad he shifted his career. But I’m hoping that even though he’s busy with something else, he will keep doing what he loves.

5 Best Japanese Expressions Used to Warm Someone’s Heart

Heartwarming and uplifting expressions are really great to hear after a hellish day.

Nao and I usually have so many things to do. He is busy working at the office and I’m struggling with my plates (art projects) at the university and design work. And due to that, we become so stressful and frustrated sometimes. Luckily, even though we get tired with our particular tasks that we must do throughout the day, We still manage to cheer ourselves up.

Chilly weekend とてもさむい ベッドから出たくない

Hi, Aika-chan

It’s so chilly here already.
It’s December. It’s winter.

I can not imagine Winter never comes in your country.

I sometimes envy people who never experience this cold weather.

But without experiencing Cold Winter,
I might never miss Hot Summer.

I love summer Tokyo Tower.
I love summer Tokyo Tower.

I hope I can visit to your country,
in the middle of winter season of my country.

I miss summer season already.

Being on the bed is paradise.

Please don’t call me lazy.

I really want to go out.

But my blanket never let me go….

Shall we watch movie later (^_-)-☆
