Did you see the movies lately?
I went to see "Christopher Robin" last week.（邦題「プーと大人になった僕」）
It's such a wonderful movie and I really enjoyed it!!!
I cried at the end, and some of my friends who saw the movie said they were crying all through the movie!
Of course I didn't cry feeling sad, but my heart was so moved and warmed!
If you are feeling very stressed out and wanting something heartwarming, gotta go to the movie!(^^)!
Come visit me to talk about it if you saw the movie☆
Today I'd like post some photos taken in the staff room.
I found some bags of snack; Vacuum freeze dried MANGO, Banana sandwiches with passion fruit, and Roasted Sunflower Seeds!
I guess some of you guys have already tried some of these, but, for me, it's the first time!
Interesting and Yummy!!
The sunflower seeds are much bigger than those we can find in Japan!!
Ms. 張娜 enjoying some sunflower seeds for dessert♪
Surely they are very much healthier than お菓子(^^), ha!
Have you tried this dish before???
I could finally go out to Fukuoka to eat this Amagori, which is a beautiful mountain of shaved frozen Amaou-strawberries with condensed milk on top!!
Again, it's all strawberries, not strawberry-flavoured!
It was sooooo good that I felt I could keep eating forever♪
I will definitely go for that soon gain!!
If you haven't tried yet, why don't you??
How did you enjoy your OBON holiday?
I had quite a long holiday, from 11th to 20th, and I went on a 2-day trip with my family in Itoshima and Hakata during the holiday.
My No.1 thing of this summer was "ふわふわかき氷" (fluffy shaved ice dessert) at 村上や in Itoshima!!! It was so good!
I'm in love with it and hope to visit the place soon again!
No.2 event was "Little Mermaid" performed by 劇団四季 at Canal City theater! It was my very first musical play in my life. I had a great time!
I talked with my students about their summer break in class today, and they all had a great time with their family or friends during the break!
Please come visit us at YMCA to talk about your summer holiday!
We had a Summer School-Party last Saturday!
Eleven students + four teachers gathered at an Izakaya restaurant nearby YMCA, and had a lot of fun eating & drinking, chatting and laughing that night. We played some riddles and did dancing activities, and everyone enjoyed them a lot!
Here are penalty photos of "Loser Teams" (Making their funny(?) faces)
Here's "Winner Team" with nice smiles!
We had a lot of fun doing some games and activities!
YMCA Language School will be closed for the Obon holiday, August 11 - 17. I hope you all will have a great time off!
See you next time!
I spent my weekend with my favorite girlfriends in Ureshino, which is famous for its great Onsen!
It was a fabulous time and I'm already missing it.
After we enjoyed the hot spring, we visited BougainHouse Ureshino（ブーゲンハウス嬉野）.
The place has got a big greenhouse of bougainvilleas, and you can go inside. The flowers were colorful and beautiful, and smelled nice! (Inside of the greenhouse was a little too hot though.)
It you have a chance to visit the place, please enjoy their delicate colors and smell!
I found lots of colourful candy on the table in the office, so I'd like to share this thing with you today.
The candy is from a wedding of one of our staff members, held in China.
I asked one Chinese staff about the wedding candy, and she said that they usually give away some candy when they send off their guests after the reception (just like weddings in Japan!)
Look at some candy packages closely!
Can you guess what they mean??? Hmmm...I guess you can!
Well, take care and see you next time:)!
Shoko again, and I would like to add some more beautiful hydrangea photos to my last blog.
I went to もととりあじさい園 this weekend, which is 25-min drive from my home, and I got overwhelmed by the scale of their garden!!! Also, they have many kinds. It was such a nice and relaxing time!
Hope you enjoy the photos!
See you next time!
Hi it's Shoko again!
I went to Habu park in Nakama-city last weekend to see their hydrangeas!
The park has a big pond with many carp swimming, many kinds of plants and flowers and some nice walking trails.
Their hydrangeas didn't have many colors but were pretty, so I was quite satisfied and it was worth a visit this season!
After enjoying the flowers, I walked around the hill and it was quite good exercise!
If you have a chance to visit there, enjoy the hydrangeas and a nice walk!
