Picnic in the house?

After having spent a great time at Africa Oye in Sefton park on Saturday, we decided to come back to the second day of the festival, but this time bringing our own picnic! Marge was going to bring organic roast chiken, Cath bringing potato salad, and me bringing Onigiri and Japanese food (and Shaz bringing more food). Well, anyway this was our plan on the basis of presumption of 'ONLY IF the weather was as beautiful as Saturday'. Of course, it rained ! Nobody could imagine that it was going to rain today, even the weather forcast! The sky was so blue and it was very sunny when I woke up in the morning, but ......... Anyway, despite of the rain, we stil felt like doing picnic, so we brought everything to Marge's house, and we did sort of picnic in the house. With beautiful red wine from Argentina and Cuban music, we were in good spirits !! Such a great and relaxing way to spend one Sunday evening!! xxx
  土曜日のセフトンパークでのAfrica Oyeイベントがすごくよかったので、日曜日(イベント最終日)は、みんなで食べ物をもちよってピクニックをすることになった。Mちゃんは、お手製ローストチキン、Cちゃんはポテトサラダ(彼女のポテトサラダはとってもおいしい)、わたしはおにぎりとそのほか日本食を、シャズも何かもってくることに。でも、お天気がよかったら、、に基づいた計画だったんだけど、天気予報も予測しなかった雨が、、、。朝はあんなにお天気がよかったのに、詐欺だ。それでも、気分はピクニック。ということで、すべての食べ物をMちゃんの家に持ちよって、家の中でピクニック気分(笑)。アルゼンチンの赤ワイン(これがなかなかおいしくてびっくり!)に、キューバの音楽で、雨にもかかわらず、みんな上機嫌♪。その後、韓国VSフランスの試合を見て盛り上がり。なんとも、リラックスした優雅な日曜日の午後でした(笑)。 xxx

Scuba Diving

So disappointed to find out that a new Scuba Diving lesson doesn't start till the end of October... I really wanted to start now when the weather is good. It seems there aren't many diving courses here.. Maybe I should just go to Sinai or a small island in Carribian or Mediterranean Sea for a week to get a diving license Anyway, I've decided to join some drop-in classes in the sports centre. 4 choices: Boxercise, Salsa, Pilates or Ace Abs 'N' Body (which is body tonigh class, with emphasis on the waistline and a flat abdominal area)! Maybe I should try firs, Bocxercise and Ace Abs 'N' Body to reduce flabby bits before even wearing swim wear ! xxx

My cousin

While I was still in Paris, I got e-mail from one of my cousins. She said that she'd already bought a plane ticket to come to UK to visit me! Of course she's always more than welcome to stay at my place as long as she wants and I was looking forward to having her around, but to be honest I was a little nervous, as I only met her once in my whole life . But it turned out to be so fun to have her and her mum around!! And on top of that, they brought me loads of Japanese food !! I cannot believe we have so much in common and so many things to talk about, like friends, boyfriends, food, school, life, girls stuff, eco-things, films, travel, etc, etc, etc! I'll surely miss her mum when she leaves this weekend. Keep in touch, Akikosan. xxx

We've been having such a beautiful weather in Liverpool since the day I came back from Paris (a friend of mine told me that it'd been raining while I was in Paris. I must have brought the sun! ) With the sun and the crystal-clear blue sky, what you want to have is a BBQ in a garden or a park! So I went to my friend's, Shaz and Mick's house to have a BBQ with their friends from work and from NY on Sunday. Caprioska (I can't remember exactly how it's called, but who cares what it's called!) with tones of fresh limes and Vodka, which Shaz made, was absolutely smashing! Sun, drink, good music and good friends; Whatelse do you need more? Thank you, Shaz and Mick! xxx
6月4日にパリから帰ってきて以来、Liverpoolはずうっとめちゃくちゃいいお天気(それまではずっと雨だったらしい!)。雲ひとつない真っ青な空と太陽、こうなったらもうバーベキューをするしかない!ということで、この日曜日、お友達のシャズと婚約者のミックの家のバーベキューにお呼ばれしてきました。シャズの同僚とミックのNYからのお友達と、シャズの家のお庭で、たっぷりお野菜にバーベキュー。そして、ライムがたっぷりはいったシャズお手製のウォッカベースカクテル「カプリオスカ(正確な名前かどうか忘れてしまった、、、)」!これはかなりおいしかった!こんな気持ちのいい日は、太陽にカクテルに仲のいい友達!それ以外はなんもいらんっというくらい楽しい夜でした。(最後はみんなで、テキサスなんとかポーカーというのを楽しんでおひらき)。シャズとミック、ありがとう♪ xxx
