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 (^_-)☆

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)

 

karaoke

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.
