autumn day

autumn day

Today is a balmy autumn day.
Come November, the rowan trees along the street change the color of their leaves into brilliant vermilion.
I love the crisp air of this season!!
However, according to the weather forecast, it'll be rainy this weekend.
I'm upset!!

souvenir from takayama

souvenir from takayama

My boss bought a can of chocolate from Takayama.
He went there with his wife for sightseeing, making the best of his holiday.
Takayama is famous for its traditional residences with huge thatched roofs.
I wish I could see it just once!!

abstinence

abstinence

I'm going to abstain from drinking, because I heard that excessive consumption of alcohol has harmful effects on the scalp.
I'm ashamed to say it, but actually I'm worrying about losing my hair these days...
I hope a healthier life lifestyle will solve this problem.

zutto

zutto

I put my mp3 files I've had in my PC into a SD card thoroughly the other day so that I can listen to them in my car.
One day, my car played an old song titled "Zutto", or "Forever", which I loved when I was a middle school student. It really brought back my old memories.

英語版ドラえもん

英語版ドラえもん

蔵書の英語版ドラえもんを自炊(笑)。
PDF化するとスマホでいつでも読めるだけでなく、好きな箇所をスクリーンショットで撮ってクラウドに保存、などという事が簡単にできるから便利だ。(この方法は仕事でも使えるが。)
マンガは擬態語の表現が新鮮でいい。
"thud"や"thump"などのお決まり文句だけでなく、モグモグは"munch"、グラッと乗り物が揺れるところは"wobble"、ガサゴソは"rustle"など、動詞を擬態語として用いている事も多い。

I cut up my comics of Doraemon to put them into iPhone as PDF files so that I can read them easily, capture favorite scenes and upload them to Cloud services.
Manga contains a lot of onomatopoeia, such as "thud" and "thump". In addition, there are some verbs used as onomatopoeias as well.
I look forward to laying my hands on the new iPad mini!

school concert

school concert

I went to see our kids playing at the school concert today.
My daughter played the piano in the play of Arabian Night "Ali Baba and 40 robbers".
It was really impressive to see the growth of my daughter.
Actually, I didn't know the detail story of Ali Baba, I read it on my smart phone and got a synopsis in advance. Although the story that my daughter and her friends played was a little rearranged for the school play, it was really interesting.

before the night work

I have to work the night shift today.
I dropped in at CoCo-Ichi, a chain curry store in Japan.
I sometimes feel like eating curry rice here. If you try it, it definitely grows on you, too.

My family set up a store at a flea market the other day.
My daughter bought a stuffed pig of a piggy-bank which is a character of the movie, Toy Story.
She loves it very much.

severe air pollution

severe air pollution

I've seen the news on iPad about the recent severe air pollution in China.
The officials are forced to close elementary and middle schools due to its high level pollutants.
On the other hand, Japanese air cleaning devices are becoming big sale.
It is terribly ironic because Chinese are always speaking badly of Japanese.

第38回札幌マラソン

札幌ハーフマラソン終了。
目標だった2時間をなんとか切る事ができたのは、昨日Depoで買った偏光サングラス、そして家族の応援と息子作フラッグのおかげかな(笑)。
景品のロングTシャツもなかなか気に入りました。

I participated in Sapporo Half Marathon today.
It was the last one for me this year.
My family gave a cheer for me along the street, and my son wove his hand-made flag for me. I was really happy!
