I took a day off today. Why? Because of the game of soccer Japan and German. In Japan, it started at 4:20 am. So I tried not to sleep until 4:20 am. What did I do until 4;20 am? After work, I met with my friend and talked about the game of Japan and German while having dinner and drinking. It was very long time because I just waited for starting the game!! After meeting friend, I went to my house and arrived at 4 am. I really think the game of Japan and German was wonderful!! It was 7:00 am when the game was over. But there were one problem after the game.That's right. I didn't sleep at all. So I took a day off. (Please keep it secret!!Please! hahaha) I wonder whether I will be able to get up the morning after watching the game of early morning and go to my work while the world cup. I know that it may be a silly problem. But it is important that watching the games of world cup for me . I hope that I can take day offs while the world cup!

Do you know about Rudy? Yes,I know. But I didn't use Rudy when I make web programs. I am trying Ruby on Rails now. Rudy is a language that Japanese Mr.Matsumoto developed. I know about PHP,Perl because I use them when I develop programs. Why am I trying Rudy on Rails? I read that it is very easy to develop programs by using Rudy on Rails. I hope that it would be nice & easy for me to develop programs by Rudy on Rails. I finished creating the table of MySQL and installing Rudy and Rails!
Once, I posted the article about rafting of Tone river on June. Yes, I got the email of the schedule this morning. Schedule? I will have to go to Tokyo station until 9:00 am. Then we will go to the Tone river with the bus. According to the email, we will arrive at the Tone river at 11 am. After eating lunch, we will start doing rafting at 13 pm and then we will enjoy doing rafting until 16 pm!! Sounds nice!! After rafting, we will go to the hot spring 'Onsen' for 1 hours. But I am afraid that it is rainy season in Japan now. Last week, it had been rain. So I looked at the weather news a few mins ago. Oh, my god!! Yes, according to the news, it may be rain on Sun when I will go to Tone river. I hope that it will be clear on Sun!!
Finally,the world cup will start next month. Although I watched the movie 'Goal!' last month but I didn't post the article about it. Because I can't expalin about it in English. Yes,The movie 'The Goal' was wonderful. The movie was not only about the soccer but also the life for example dreams,family. So I recommend that you will watch the movie 'The Goal'. I think that the movie 'The Goal' is fun for everyone.
Last night,I met my friend and we wen to Japanese pub 'Ganko' of Ginza. Because I wanted to talk about the business etc. Yes,I have been thinking about starting the business for a month. Although I am an employee now, I want to start my business like my friends. Anyway, I ate too much last night and so I regret. - sashimi - salada - sushi - Japanese seaweed 'mozuku' with vineger. mozuku is seaweed.Okinawa's mozuku is famous. - satsuma-age I can't eat satsuma-age.But my friend wanted to eat it. So we ordered. Satsuma-age is made from fishes. - soy milk ice cream Although I ate too much,I ordered ice cream... If you don't have a lot of money and want to eat food at Japanese food , you will have to go to Ganko!! Because the prices of Ganko were not expensive and foods were delicious. Now,I understand why the prices aren't expensive. (There are many shops and restaurants of high prices in Ginza.) Ganko was restaurant from Osaka. (I heard that the price of Osaka are more economic than Tokyo.I could understand that was true.)
I posted the video of Japanese comedian 'Oriental radio' a few days ago. They are popular since last year. Their comedy shows of their funny heroic episodes 'Buyouden' are broadcasted on TV now. This program was 'Enta no kami-sama' broadcasted. What did they say? Yes,the answer is here. Atsuhiko Nakata : I walked for 5 hours without the trains in order to save money. Shingo Fujimori : Work as a part-time job if you have time to walk for 5 hours. Atsuhiko Nakata : I usually read from the last episode of mystery novels at first. Shingo Fujimori : Because you can finish reading the novels of long story for only 5 mins! Atsuhiko Nakata : I move approximately 3 millimeters bus stop every day. Shingo Fujimori : After 2 years, the bus stop will be front of your house. Atsuhiko Nakata : I am fashion-conscious! Shingo Fujimori : That's right.You catch cold earlier than anyone!! I am sorry becuase I can't translate into English very well and I couldn't find this TV program with English subtitle. Anyway,Their shows are funny!
Yes,I am still keeping doing diet. But I regretted the dinner of last night. Why? Because I went to Chinese restaurant with my friend. Then I ate too much! Anyway,I will go to Tone river in order to do rafting next month. I have to put on the swimwear while doing rafting. I am afraid that I won't be able to put on it.hahaha. So I have to keep doing diet until doing rafting. Although we ate two pieces of fried chicken as lunch.Now,I checked the calories of fried chicken. The calories of fried chiken is 261 kcal. So I took 520 kcal...
I like funny things! I like Japanese comedian Oriental radio. Of course Hard gay too. Plese look at this if you don't know Hard gay. P.S Thanks,X!! I laughed when I watched Hard gay again. I like his TV programs 'Bakuten'. He said 'Fo!!'.Then his words were popular in Japan last year. He won the prize of popular words. Do you know that he is not only a comedian but also fighter? I want to watch the game of his fight!
I am dieting now. But I want to post the article of Japanese pub. Last night,I went to Japanese pub 'izakaka' with my friend. Don't worry about my body!! Of course I didn't eat too much. We ordered these. - the salad with soy milk sauce \720 - sashimi (tuna,hamatchi,hotate,salmon)\1,580 - Yakitori chicken meatballs 'tsukune' \480 Yakitori is popular in Japanese pub. The prices are about 200 yen per one people. There are many types of Yakitori in Japan. - chicken breast - enoki mushrooms wrapped in slices of pork - chicken with green pepper - green onions and chicken breast - chicken cartilage - liver - chicken meatballs 'tsukune' - chicken skin 'torikawa' - chicken wing 'tebasaki' - asparagus wrapped in bacon - pork belly - hearts of chickens 'hatsu' I like chiken's gizzards 'Sunagimo' of yakitori best. But I didn't ordered it last night. We eat Yakitori with salt or Japanese sauce made from Soy sauce and sugar. I prefer salt when I eat Yakitori.
I am happy now. Well,to tell the truth, I was not happy because of some reasons before receiving the letter from Ba . I may post it someday. Anyway, I am happy. How wonderful the letter from Ba is! I can't explain the joy.Your letter is really my treasure. I have the letters and post card from you in my bag. Thank you very much. And I really want to meet with you! Airgatou!!
I forgot posting the article about Tateshina and a villa of Japanese famous movie director Yasujiro Ozu 'mugei-sou'. I and my friend went to Tateshina of Nagano prefecture by the car. We arrived at Tateshina at afternoon. Then we decided to have lunch at the restaurant of Japanese noodle 'Soba'. This Japanese noodle 'soba' restaurant's name is 'soba-syou'. Then I ordered Oroshi-soba.It was 950yen. Very delicous!! After eating lunch,we went to the villa of Japanese famous movie directore Ozu. It was very fantastic! Everybody can show and enter the villa for free. But we couldn't enter the villa because the time was over 16 pm. So we sat down the chair of garden and looked at the view for 1 hours. I hope that I will go to the villa again.
After work, I met my friend last night. Then we drank coffee and ate chocolate cakes during talking about our jobs. After chatting with my friend, it was 9 pm . Then I remembered the fact at the station before going back to my house. Yes,the answer was my black pants. I had never put on it for 6 month. Then I tried putting it on after waking up in the morning of yesterday. But I couldn't put on it in the morning. Because of my belly fat!! So I decided to walk to my house. I could watch the night view of Tokyo while walking. I managed to arrive at my house after 10 mins. But I couldn't give up eating dinner because of the hunger. Anyway,I wil try putting my black pants tonight while praying my god. I hope that I will be able to put on it again.
You many know that Korean movies and TV programs have kept being popular in Japan since 3 years ago. It is called Korean wave 'Han-ryu'. At first, Korean dramas Winter Sonata 'Fuyu-sona' we call started to be broadcasted on TV in 2003. Then Korean actor Bae Yongjun was popular among Japanese elder women. After that, many Korean movies and dramas started be broadcasted in Japan. As soon as they have been broadcast in Japan, they are popular among many Japanese women in Japan. When I was charged with the web site of cellphones during working at the ex company, the web sites of Korean entertainments was released on the web site of cellphones. But I didn't watch Korean movies and dramas yet at that time. And I often had to work overtime during working at the ex company because there were many tasks. ( Now,I am remembering that I worked during Japanese holidays 'Golden week' of last year.) Finally, I recently watched Korean movies and dramas. I watched these. - Beautiful Days 'Utukushiki-Hibi' - Happy together - Addicted - Bittersweet Life These are Lee Jung Hyun's movies. I knew Lee Jung Hyun before I watched these because I had watched the movie 'JSA'. I think 'JSA' was good. Anyway, I could enjoy these very well.
