For over 5 years now me and my husband have wanted to go to japan things haven’t gone to plan and times are tough. I’ve recently started reading Total Recall Arnold Schwarzenegger’s autobiography I’m half way through the book and I’m hooked It’s a book I cant put down and very inspirational. I think the most important thing that I’ve gotten from the book is that anything is possible through believing and hard work you can reach your coals, no matter what life throws at you hold on to your dreams. Japan isn’t an option right now but I know in my heart someday it will be. I would recommend this book to everyone
I’ve recently took up the game of go, again after not playing in a few years I have really got back into it. I’m at a higher rank than when I first started around 26-Kyu, when I played years ago I started at 30-Kyu and stayed at that for a long time. I’m hoping to get a lot better and to start entering tournaments. In October there is a tournament and me and my husband are thinking of entering he’s a much better player than me, again he’s just got back into it after not playing for a few years. He seems to be better than when he first started after playing a lot online he’s now around 3-Kyu. I’ve been reading a few books on go which is helping and playing online, but there isn’t any places you can go to play with other players as it’s not that well known in the UK. The game originated in China more than 2,500 years ago and then got popular in Korea and then Japan. I will be posting some more about the game in my next posts here’s some pictures for now
Thought I’d put up a Christmas AMV I hope we do get a white Christmas this year.
I’ve been listening to a lot of music from this pianist and composer lately must get the albums that he’s done love this song has to be my favorite
My Hubby and I have finally started to sell our beloved Anime we’ve decided to keep 4 rare box sets each we can always ship them to Japan If we get to stay. I’ve been busy selling all of the general stuff we had like fishing gear and our mountain bikes.
The rest of our things can be sold last minute when we’ve saved up enough to set off for Japan everything we make from selling our things will go to our japan fund. It’s gonna take a lot of saving but we really hope to get there in the next 2 years at latest. We want to go more than ever now we’re both studying and and immersing our selves in all things japan to help with studying.
If your interested In any of our collection we’ve got from years of collecting please take a look…
The Japanese have some weird and wonderful drinks theres the traditional drinks like sake and green tea then theres the new weird types of drinks like Ramune. Ramune is a drink I’ve tried and really like theres lots of different flavors like Melon and Strawberry I would recommend them to everyone.
Sake is a favorite drink for me I’ve tried it both hot and cold its usually served hot in the winter months. high-grade sake is not drunk hot as it can ruin the flavor.
Green tea is a drink I have often but I’ve never tried the Japanese variety will be sure to be drinking often when in Japan.
Boss, a Japanese canned coffee never tried it but would like to available at many vending machines.
Asahi beer, I sometimes have when I go to Wagamama they also sell Ichi ban which is another Japanese beer which I’ve tried.
Just watched this very interesting episode of Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, I have a passion for food and cooking and would love to visit some of he places he went in this episode. Hopefully In the near future I will get to taste the real food of Japan. I’ve been to quite a few Japanese restaurants in the UK now but I believe the experience and tastes would be a lot better if I were in Japan. I guess I just long to be there to see new things experience the culture and try the many different dishes Japan has to other.
Here are some pictures of my plush collection taken with my new camera Olympus E- PL 1
Well been without a camera for a while now and was out window shopping, seen a camera that I really liked the looks of had an old fashioned look about it. I don’t know much about specs and so on, I asked hubby to have a look see if he liked it he did all the research and read reviews and had a look in store he liked it. We decided to get it and I love it It takes amazing pictures the quality is really good. I would recommend it to everyone it has the quality of an SLR yet is a lot smaller and compact perfect. We hope to take it to japan one day to take some pictures
Me and my husband recently ordered a wrist band each It’s from Lady Gaga’s website All proceeds go directly to Japan relief efforts. My heart goes out to all the people of Japan and we wanted to do something to help.
