Today, I'm going to share some of my "numbers for 2020" with you.
I have set up some numbers for this year 2020.
One of them is "twelve" movies ( or more) in total I'll see this year!
I already saw two movies.
One is Frozen 2. I saw it on January 1st. which is so famous that I don't need to explain about the movie, right? It was good!
And I saw Parasite, South Korean film, a black comedy thriller by Bong Joon-ho this week.
It was very interesting and some scenes from the movie are still staying in my head.
It's not the type of movie everyone can enjoy, so please check out its reviews before going to see it!
I recommend it very much, though.
I have more movies to see for this month on my list.
I think I will be able to achieve "twelve" this year no problem, yay!! ( Last year finished with eight.....)
Happy New Year!
I hope you all had a good time with your family and friends around the new year day.
One week has already passed, and things are now back in normal.....
Well, it's a great time to set some goals for the new year 2020, right?
I'm sure some of you have already made a list of resolutions or things to achieve this year.
Especially, the Olympic Games will come to Japan this year, so a lot of exciting things are waiting for us!
Please come visit us and let us hear about your stories!!
We are now in the winter holidays, and the regular classes for this year 2019 have finished.
We will open again in the new year 2020 on the 7th January.
I really look forward to hearing my students' holiday stories and their new year wishes in class!
I hope you all have a wonderful time with your family and friends during that time★
See you all soon again in the new year in class!
Already in the middle of December, and the new year 2020 will come in about half a month.
In December, we have a lot of fun events, like year-end parties and Christmas-related parties.
I hope you are all doing fine and enjoying partying around!
We at YMCA have put up a Christmas tree at the entrance with many other decorations!
Please stop by to check it out if you come by in the neighborhood!
Merry Christmas to you all!
Here comes another Autumn-colour season! Yeah!
I went to 紅葉の森 near 福智山ろく花公園 in 直方 for a walk last weekend.
It was such a beautiful sunny day that the leaf colours were beautifully contrasted with the blue sky!
I could have a pleasant walk that day.
Also, I can enjoy the autumn more by looking at many pretty photos that my students bring into class to share.
Please drop in at YMCA to show us your best-shot photos when you come around!
I love walking around in the park or fields at the Onga river especially this season!
I went to the Green Park last weekend and had a nice walk around there.
It was such a nice sunny day, and the flowers and plants were all colourful and refreshing!
I especially enjoyed the hill of Kochia plants! So cute!!!
The picture of cosmos flowers was taken at the Onga-riverside in Mizumaki.
I guess they are now at the bloom peak, so you better hurry!!
Some of you may already know that we at Kitakyushu YMCA holds "北九州多文化共生わいわい祭り" in November.
This year as well, the festival will take place at Kitakyushu YMCA on November 3rd, Sunday.
You will be able to enjoy some exotic international foods, interesting panels that our international students have created to introduce their countries, a variety of stage performance, and so on.
It will be from 10:30 to 15:00!
Why don't you come visit to take a look?
It should be fun, even you can learn some new things!
Hi there! It's Keiko here this time!
I visited New Zealand, traveled around by rental car with my husband.
It was the first time to see real "glacier" in Mt. Cook, and some lumps of it were in the lake!
Mmm...global warming is going on...
In Milford Sound, we took a boat cruise!
As you can see in the photo, waterfalls are everywhere, the boat got really close to the rock cliff.
It was right that I wore rain coats...I got all wet!
The scenery in NZ is just breathtaking.
Hi!Yay! I could get the kiwi brothers dolls!
Have you seen them on the TV commercial??
They dance and sing, sometimes act (with some other fruits)!
I love the series of their commercials, and I was hoping to get their dolls displayed at the kiwi section in the supermarket every time I go and see them.
Then, I found that the company was running a campaign of selling "Special Package" including 9 kiwis and a kiwi doll, so Why not?
I went to some supermarkets in my neighborhood to find the special packages.
I bought 2 packages of kiwis, gold ones and green ones.
They are now sitting at the window in my room, looking up at me with the great & cute smiles!
We've been suffering from this heavy rain in the northern part of Kyushu this time.
I hope you all are doing fine and it won't leave any more serious damages.
Well, today I'd like to post a photo I took on the way to YMCA in the morning the other day.
I was waiting at the crosswalk and just happened to look down at my feet.
Then I found a small bush of オジギ草 at the curb!
Of course I touched them to have them bow to me! That was so cute!
That gave me a nice feeling for that day!
