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.

Hokusai and Kappa 北斎と河童

I finally could see Hokusai’s Ukiyo-e works.

Hokusai (1760–1849) is one of the most remarkable Japanese Ukiyo-e artist.

And his Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji series are acknowledged as one of the most famous Ukiyo-e series.

Ukiyo means The Floating World.)

Japan Visa Application Got Denied? Here’s my Horror Story

japan-visa-denied-pic

 

December 2014, I was very elated to get a promo flight ticket to Tokyo. I told Nao-chan about it and we were both very excited to meet in Japan. (I’ve almost forgotten that I need to apply for a visa~) I was very excited to go abroad for the very first time! To be honest, I was so optimistic that I can get approved easily because I heard in the news that the Japan Visa Application process is currently relaxed.

After reading some blogs about Japan Visa application and their success stories, I have become much more positive that I can get approved too. I decided to apply for a Single Entry Tourist Visa without a Guarantor. Nao-chan was anxious to be my guarantor due some reasons that the embassy might think he is not eligible for it.

So three weeks prior to my “flight” I went to a travel agency to submit my requirements, ate a bowl of Ramen and went  home with a smile from ear to ear. After a few days, I received a text from the agency asking me to get my passport. I went there then WHOA. my application got denied!

Happy New Year everyone!

You probably be wondering who is the person in our illustration.

He’s Goromaru Ayumu 五郎丸歩, a very strong Japanese rugby player.

He’s very popular now and got lots of fans (including Nao-chan!)

だから五郎丸選手のイラストをかきました (That’s why I drew Goromarusan’s illustration)

 

I want to be as tough as him~ ^^

 

May the year of the Monkey (Oriental Zodiac) be good to us. Happy Holidays!

Hello-

I hope we all fine most of time in 2016.

Of course there’s many hardships in our life.

But we can learn new thing through any experiences……

 

By the way, I saw very weird video.

If you are not strong enough, Please don’t watch this.

 

I knew this dance group “東京ゲゲゲイ (Tokyo gegegay) ” on TV today.

There performance was superb, then I checked their video on youtube.

 

 

It’s very….JAPAN

こわい(Kowai)  means….  scary

Even that Crying Politician appears (+_+)

Wah- Wah-Wah-

I don’t know if this video is suitable to watch on new year’s day.

But I felt some kind of unfathomable energy from their performance.

It’s so madly motivational.

I want to start new things(^o^)

 

A Happy New Year (^_-)☆
