The first half of the year 2006 was rather hard.
I was unable to understand
what my supervisor expected out of me.
I was down for a while
but I decided to do my best, anyway.
And it got better.
I sent my college-student daughter out of home,
and she just enjoys living on her own.
My colleagues at the same division are really kind to me.
And I could join the "Ecolish", which I enjoy a lot.
So, after all, it turned out to be a good year, the year 2006.
I am setting two small goals for the year 2007.
One is to become able to do translation work at higher speed.
Another one is to keep perfectly awake
during the whole work hours. (- -;
I am planning to join IUCN symposium in January
and very much looking forward to it.
I expect the new year to be more exciting
than any other year, ever.
I wish you all, too,
a happy, exciting and fruitful new year !
What kind of one year were you this year?
And what is an ambition of your next year?
I love travelling too!
Very recently, I visited to Penang Island, Malaysia for vacation.
I was very surprised that it took more than 7 hours from Narita to Kuala Lumpur!
I thought Malaysia is much nearer than it really is.
But the flight was good.
I watched the movie ''Fula Girls'' on the aircraft.
That movie was awsome! I liked it very much.
Watching movie on the airplane is also one of the pleasures of the overseas trip, isn't it?
The sky in Penang was very clear and the sea had many kinds of blue.
During the stay, I was always feeling the scent of something very sweet like flower or fruits. It made me very relaxing.
I like visiting foreign countries, meeting many people who lives there, getting knowledge about their lives, tasting good food & drink there etc.
I believe that travelling makes our lives happier!
I like to trip an overseas.
When I went to an overseas, I always go to a local market.
Becasuse, I want to get to know daily life of inhabitants.
It is very interesting for me.
I'm going to go to Bali island in January.
I'm look forward to going there.(^^)/
MY favorite things are fermentation foods, such as tea, pickles, cheese and brewed bevarage. So, I'm interested in fermentation.
I like not only eating fermentation foods, but also making them. For example, I bake natural yeast bread. I make the yeast from raisons, apples and browm rice, etc. Although making natural yeast needs much time, a scent of bread using it is very good and delicious.
My kitchen sometimes seems like a laboratory♪
Honestly speaking, being a mother and a housewife as well as a worker, I have very little time to use for my own interest.
Still, I have several things that I like to do.
When I want to relax, it is best to drink Japanese wine, eating some Sushi.
Although not at all skillfull, I do website designing to get a sense of deeper fulfillment.
I am making a website for my brother right now, and almost finishing it.
I will tell you the URL when it's all finished, if you like.
What is your hobby?
What is the thing which you are interested in recently?
I'm interested in Ukulele recently.
It was a frist time when I saw Mr.Jake shimabukuro's musical performance,I was really impressed with it(^0^)
So I'm going to join a free Ukulele lesson next time!
Have a nice weekend!（・×・）/
