If you don't do anything, you won't get any experience.





i'm home!!!

well, im back home a few days ago from thai.

thai was awesome country.
actually when i've been there before and at that time i got food poisoning so i had been scared of thai food for a long time.
but during in australia i sometimes ate thai food and it was so tasty.
and this time, i tried to eat some thai food on the street and at a thai market timidly.
but it was awesome!!! as i predicted i got stomach ache a little bit but japanese medicine '正露丸'helped me lol

then i had a thai massage and went to some thai style pubs.
although both of them were first time for me, they are really comfortable.
also thai market & shopping are really fun and very cheap and too many shops in the market.
i was worndering if there is a market which is similar to it in japan.
anyway i wanna go to some beaches and some other places which i didnt go this time.

btw i didn't know that we could go to cambodia by bus from thai.
that's very cool too.

well at last i came back to japan and i've guradually adopted japanese environment again.
it's time to look for a job.
i'll start to do it soon.

in summary, my purposes when i decided to go to australia were the following things and i could perform those all! cool isn't it?

- make good friends
- work for computer industry
- become to speak english fluently ^^;
- live there same as i do in japan

and i think it is better that i close this blog now.
from now on i'll appear on mixi or whatever in japanese and i'll use another homepage in english.
http://mixi.jp (only japanese)

thank you for everyone who i met in australia.
thanks to you, i could have really good time and i'll remember and miss you guys.
if i have a chance, i'll visit your countries as much as i can in future.
also i wanna keep in touch with you guys.

c u mate!

People vanished!!!

CommonWealthGame.gifThe common Wealth Game has been taken place in Melbourne this week.
It is like an Olynpic Game but only England and the countries which was territory of England take part in this Game.
But today I saw a news and I'm surprised the news.
The news says eight athletes vanished suddenly.
They are supposed to appear the Common Wealth Game.
At first I thought they were involved in any bad trouble.
But I asked to my co-worker. and he said "It is very common. because they who vanished suddenly were very poor and this time they could come here(Australia) without paying any money.
They are from Tanzanian,Bangladeshi and so on(maybe) and they can't get a good job, well pay, so if they live here even if it's illegally, they are happier than being in their country.
And if we saw on the street who can recognized them?"
"Oh, i see." I said.
They needed to do it to be alive even if they were proffessional athletes in their country.
So how does normal people in their country live?
Well we need to know how happy we were.
And we need to know what happens in the world.
I thought so today.



I caught a cold... I'm hard to work snively...
Everyone, take care~ too

i've been working overtime for this 2,3 days.
but basically it's better than nothing to do, isn't it?
yesterday my co-worker taught me a slang.

Small Potato ... this means just like normal person not but high class person.or じぶんをみくだすいいかた。
you can use this way.

i'm a just small potato, so i must do like what my boss says.

if i say in japanese it's very interesting.

well, slang is not useful for me to study basic English and after i go back to japan but there're very funny expressions so this is a sort of way i can enjoy to talk with OZ.


Long time no write

I haven't written any articles recently.
Somehow recently I've been rather busy at work and drinking...:p
Recently, I usually go to drink with my co-worker.
And they teach me slang.
For example,
alchy ... alchol
I'm pissed ... I'm drunk
sausage festa ... there is no women in the pub
the shit is gonna hit the fan ... I think something bad is gonna happen
...and other dirty slang as well...
Well, it's useful for me? I'm wondering if the time I use those words comes...
But it's very fun, isn't it?

Big Day Out!

BigDayOut.gifI went to Big Day Out!
Which is the biggest Rock Music Festival in Australia (maybe). like Fuji Rock in Japan.
The location was Princess Park at North Carlton.
In this time the following artist appeared on stage...
Seems to me that they performed as well as they could!
I think the living end was the best of them all.
They were awesome!!!
Because I think everyone felt drawn toward them.
And I thought Music was universal language.
We can enjoy and share the time, right?
Well, The white stripes, Franz Ferdinand were also nice.
But at that time I had terrible headache because of tired and hot so I couldn't concentrate it. such a shame...
Maybe I will never go to the concert again.
So what I went to concert here was one of my good memories!
Which concert should I attend next??? I will be in Japan so, Summer Sonic?

*@"#G:-+ Artist *@"#G:-+
- The White Stripes
- Iggy & The Stooges
- Franz Ferdinand
- Kings of Leon
- Henry Rollins
- The Mars Volta
- Soulwax
- 2 Many DJs
- Sleater-Kinney
- The Magic Numbers
- The Living End
- Shihad
- Wolfmother
- End of Fashion
- Gerling
- Dei Hamo
- Mudvayne
- The Go! Team
- Mikey Dread
- The Subways
- DJ James Murphy
- The Greenhornes
- Kid Kenobi plus MC Sureshock

  by kid-A
The next concert will be ROCK in JAPAN. must be

That is one of the things I missed when I was in NY.
what else?? dont care.
cause these are very small such as ウォシュレット、あいちゃん(my dog!) and Japanese girls.

anyway, I agree with u.
Music is world language.


Tram Driver!

TramCoke.jpgYesterday, I was getting on tram.
And suddenly the tram driver stopped the tram and got off from the tram and went somewhere.
at that time I was wondering if where he went.
a few minutes later...
the tram drive came back with Coca Cola!!!
what the hell??
this is this culture that we can't accept in Japan or we don't predict that it happens in Japan.
But I am used to accept it because this is Australia so it happens normally.


Memoirs of Geisha

MemoirsOfGeisha.jpgI went to see Memoirs of Geisha.
In Australia the movie has been showing from last week at last ><.
The theatre was very crowded, almost full house!
And I saw the movie sitting in the front tier.

The main story was...
Chiyo was sold by her parents to get money.
And she has been used as a slave and suffered from very hard life.
At that time she saw a guy who was called Chear man.
Then she changed her name to Sayuri and she became the best Geisha in the town and she got fame by her attraction especially her blue eyes.

I think the movie is quite interesting.
Because they spoke Japanese and English in a jumble as I've heard from my friends.
The point I thought it was fun was that though the story was Japanese and lots of actor, actoress were Japanese, they talked in English each other.
And description about Japanese culture was not too bad compared to like what is described in other movies (though I don't know about it a lot).
I don't know a lot about Geisha but I don't think they do such a thing like throwing the fan(Sensu) roughly in front of customer.
But the story was quite simple and there was no deep story and no deep human communication.
So on that point there was nothing which makes me move and that was shame.

Btw one of my co-worker who I don't know about was walking around in bare feet just now.
What the hell?! Indeed it's hot but...
Wear your shoes!!!
Well I saw him going into toilet!


43 do

PortMelbourne.jpgThe day before yesterday was around 38 degrees and yesterday was around 43 degrees.
Have you tried hot wind before?
Wind is rather hot!!!! Can you believe it???
I almost died...
But today it is around twenty-something degree...
Melbourne's weather is so weirD!

It is 38 degree in NY now・・・in winter
and it was over 95 degree in summer・・・

u know what??
We have deferent degree not Centigrade but Fahrenheit.
so I have to calculate to Centigrade ,which I'm familiar with, to see how hot and cold.

Its like -32 x 5/9・・・
oh, man! fucking Fahrenheit! I hate it!!


Thanx mate!

Shine.jpgDong Ho has gone back to Korea.
Everything was very good memory.
He is... who I knew when I started to go to language school and I have played with him including "family" since then.
He was alway made a joke in our class and made a very good mood.
Owing to it we really enjoyed in the class.
After graduation, we were alway together, talked a lot of things, drunk until being pissed, laugh together and sometimes argued.
That's why I could be here.
Yeah, it is not too much to say so.
I will also go back to Japan in the near future and make my life.
From now on we might make quite different life but let's keep in touch together.
I am sure that he can make good life! Fight!
And I am sure that we meet again and then let's have a fun!

Anyway thank you for everything and C u soon, my buddy!

Now I am wondering if he is in Narita and nothing to do(^^)
And Jay hee, thank u for your calling from Korea!

Welcome Back To MEL

Crowd.jpgone of my best friends Seulbi came back to melbourne from korea.
she is rather funny girl and talkative and lives with dong ho and other friends.but she'd stayed in korea for a month-ish and her english became not good so i am really worried about it after going back to japan.

anyway someone go back to their country and another come back to melbourne and it happened frequently.
oh, melbourne is very busy city.

well we drunk korean soju a bit! it was a bit strong compared to normal soju(melbourne soju) but masiso~.
when i go back to japan, i will preach you not english but korean LOL.


Good Luck!

Crown.jpgMy best bloke "Jay Hee" has gone to Korea this morning.
I was wondering if he really liked "Crown" LOL.
so I always try to persuade him stop going to "Crown".
but he was alway eager to go there and to take me.
so I couldn't refuse it LOL.

anyway it was a very very great days we spent together. pool,crown,lounge, great ocean, sydney, etc......

Crown is just like playground for adult as you like(^^KKK



Recently my terrible English is really really problem.
Actually I'm down and tired....besides, my frinds would go back their country soon.
So I was thinking when I should go back home.
But today my boss gave me extension. I mean I continue to work for them 1 month more.
This is really good news for me!
Actually I don't think I could improve my English while I was working.
But also I realized that I need to take more and more time to speak with local people.
Thank you, my boss!
Actually I couldn't understand your speaking exactly:p
I will do my be----st.

明けましておめでとうございますm(_ _)m

HappyNewYear.jpgI stayed in Sydney during New Year Holidays and saw fireworks
counting down on New Year Eve.
Many OZ were shouting whenever fireworks was exploding in
the sky and I felt overwhelmed by them and this year has
Well It was quite good to be able to ring in the new year in Sydney because it's very different from normal year.

I want to do and have to do the things which I can't do in Japan before I go back to Japan... study English, make foreign friends, enjoy this holiday and so on!!!


今年もどうぞよろしくお願い申上げますm(_ _)m


Christmas in Melbourne

Christmas of Melbourne was really small, desolate and nothing to do.
Every shops were closed and there were few people in the city.
I heard local people were staying in their house.
So indeed when I saw some people, almost of all them were asian...
Well, we had a party as local people did, it was good because I had a lot of food and drinks and cakes.
this year's christmas was just "EATING".



KnitCapOfSanta.jpgToday one of my colleague was wearing the knit cap of Santa Claus.
But anyone didn't say anything!
Someone please say something to her!!!
Anyway I could see an Australian culture.
And she was wearing that cap all day and went home.

Christmas Party

SurfingSanta.jpgYesterday I went to have a lunch with my collegue.
My team made the party as a Christmas Party.
And we went to the restaurant near our company.
I ate a chiken permegiana.
maybe it's a traditional australian food and very big!
I barely finished it.
And regardless of having a lunch we drunk a lot.
Actually I was pissed a bit.
Owing to it, I couldn't concentrate to work after that.

And I went to Kayoko's home to have a Christmas party on last Saturday.
It was really nice because there were a lot of delicious food and we talked a lot.
I could enjoyed that day.

And before that day I went to Christian's Christmas party with my collegue.
It's also very good experiance.
Because I learned about the birth of Christ seeing a play.
But I felt they wanna make me to be a Christian.
Well, I don't think I would be a Christian.
It's just a good experiance.

Oh, maybe I will have a another Christmas party with my friends in this week.
Too many parties!

Great Ocean Road

GreatOceanRoad1.jpgGreatOceanRoad2.jpgGreatOceanRoad#.jpgWe went to the Great Ocean Road which is on of the most famous place near Melbourne in Australia.
In fact this is my 2nd time to visit here. I visited here with my parents before.
But what I wanna say is this is great place if you come here again and again!
I really impressed about the greatness of nature again.
Maybe though that's a shame, we can't see this kind of view in Japan.
The first photo you can see in this article is called "twelve apostles" which is really in a dignified way.
GreatOceanRoad4.jpgGreatOceanRoad5.jpgGreatOceanRoad6.jpgAnd what we can see is the location of Red Pig(紅の豚)(see the last photo).
So we can see a lot of location of Ghibli movies(Totoro, Kiki's delivery service...) in Australia.
This is one of the many things that we can enjoy during staying in Australia.
Anyway it was really beautiful day and though we were very tired,we had a great time!

We had a BBQ party.
But unfortunately it was raining a bit at that time, so we used cafeteria which is in our company instead of going to beach.
It was good time to talk with OZ.
But still I can't understand.
When can I listen to them completely?

By the way, they call BBQ barby(バービィー).
it is pronounced same as 'バービィー' of 'バービィーにんぎょう'.
So many Japanese are comfused at first time when they heard about what OZ is talking about BBQ.



Yesterday, I did 1 hour overtime after a long time.
Because I must finish the task within this week.
And tomorrow my company will be close at 3 ish and we then go to beach(?) to have a BBQ.
So I will be busy today and tomorrow morning as well as yesterday.
But I feel good!
I like 'busy'. Oh because of I'm Japanese?

P.S. I've forgot to release this article.
But I think that there is much point in writing in English so I release it.
