Opening Poem – Now the Flower Blooms

難波津に
咲くやこの花
冬ごもり
いまを春べと
咲くやこの花

[In Naniwa Bay,
now the flowers are blossoming.
After lying dormant all winter,
now the spring has come,
and those flowers are blossoming.]

For You, I Head Out

君がため
春の野に出でて
若菜つむ
わが衣手に
雪は降りつつ

[For you,
I head out to the fields
to pick spring greens,
while snow falls
upon my sleeves.]

Before Reply 1988 in 2015, there were two series, i.e. Reply 1997 in 2012 and Reply 1994 in 2013. As the other two series, the story is obviously making the viewers wondering who will end up being female protagonist’s husband. However, Continue reading “All About Family in Reply 1988”

YC 2016 – The Fourth Online Gathering

On July 28, 2016, I visited MITI Academy website. I found out that my submission was already graded. Once again, the grade was not so good. Apparently, I had misunderstood something. I thought the information compiled had to be concise so that it will be easy to read, therefore there were many links I provided referring to the detailed information instead of cited it by myself. :( Continue reading “YC 2016 – The Fourth Online Gathering”

Dear My Friends – Remember

[Remember,
the gracious morning dew,
accompanying you to start anew.
Remember,
the lovely morning breeze,
caressing you to feel the bliss.]

Dear My Friends
I have no idea what’s going on,
but every problem has a solution.
Remember,
a beautiful morning awaits you,
with pleasure encourages you.

A Bunch of People in Cosplay

While many people say that live action adaptation could be worse because it looks like a bunch of people in cosplay, I love it even more. I enjoy everything if it comes from Japan; to the extent that I can stand watching ridiculous outfit or hairstyle in the film/serial; as long as the essences are still there, i.e. good story and good acting.

Long Last We Meet

めぐり逢ひて
見しやそれとも
わかぬ間に
雲がくれにし
夜半の月かな

[Long last we meet,
only for me to leave hurriedly,
for I could not recognize you,
like the moon
hidden behind the clouds.]

YC 2016 – The Second Online Gathering

On May 27, 2016, the second online gathering was held. The discussion topic was about personal statement. Our mentor gave us tips how to write a good one, what to include and what not.

Weekend for Fun

There are many things I want to do and achieve, they are IELTS Band 7; Research Proposal; Youth Connection 2016 Tasks; Sewing Projects; Blog Writing; Driving Practices; Etc. The first three are categorized as brain-draining activities. I used to study whenever I want and if I get bored I will begin watching an idol-related video or playing music on my laptop, watch my idol news from twitter or watch any film/drama. Well, the most difficult thing to change is a habit. But I am determined to change for the better future. I made a schedule like this: Continue reading “Weekend for Fun”

My TOEFL-ITP Score

The day was hot, I wore my usual attire at home, my mom was sleeping when I watched film on my laptop.

The delivery man was waiting. I called for a help from my mom, who willingly got up from bed to receive the package. (thank you, mom, I love you) Continue reading “My TOEFL-ITP Score”
