Nissin Commercial Video

Ah...
Hybrid Ramen
From Nissin Foods
called "FutoMen Dodo"
It's funny how they play on the words "futo (fat) men (noodle)" then the men in the CM are all chubby men. It's just awesome and creative. Watch now! hehehe



I stumbled across this CM from a website and it is hilarious and succeeded in me wanting to buy and eat it!
I wonder if Miracle Food store has this in stock or not. LOL

I want to try this cup ramen badly!

Oh why is it called Hybrid Ramen?
Well in the CM it is written "fried X non-fried noodle" combined together.
Now I wonder what that tastes like. lol

Btw, this cup ramen seems to be around for almost more than a year but I do not eat cup noodles that much anymore like I used to.

Now I stick to boiled noodles like Mie Goreng, Jajangmyeon (black noodle), Mama Tom YUm noodle, and of course Nissin Udon (that I make myself combine with tamanegi + wasabi + udon tsuyu).

XOXO

Sydney's Japanese Festival

シドニー日本祭りはめっちゃ楽しかったっ! 
十月十五日に10時から22:30時までダーリングハーバーで屋台、色々な演舞、辻芸なども行われました。私が浴衣を着ずに祭りに行ってが、大勢の観光客と浴衣を着ていた日本人もたくさん見たし幸せでした。
例えばこの夫婦:ご主人は白人ですが、はかまにとても似合いますね。 
このお婆さん達はどこから来るか分からないが、明るい着物を着ているし、とても目立ちましたね。
インドネシアの踊りもありましたよ。これはバリ島の踊りなんです。なんと言うか知らないけどとても美しかったですよ。


私と姉は祭りに行った後、hurricane restaurant で夕ご飯を食べた!
私は半分のばら肉を食べて、めっちゃおいしかったです! いただきま~す


これは、自分で帯を結んで、浴衣を着て、失敗しちゃったので祭りに浴衣を着ずに行きました。
浴衣と着物の着るポイントは襟首が見えることです。 

今度のブログは短かいですか?
理由はほとんど九ヶ月ぐらい日本語を書かなくて話してないので練習したいです!応援してくれませんか?
それでは、次のポストはもっと面白いほうがいいですね。笑 

またね!

so...

I read a funny shared picture on Fb where it says:

"Japanese attitude for work:
If one can do it, I can do it. If no one can do it, I must do it."

hahahaha
Funny, but somewhat true.

日差し。。。(ひざし)

厚い。。。
暑い。。。
熱い。。。
夏か。。。
春か。。。
皆さん、太陽は綺麗だと思いますか。メリッサにとって、太陽は体にいいではなく、暖かいので幸せな気持ちをすぐ出てくると思っています。お正月の日、私と友達も初日の出を見て、いい感じでした。

し。か。し。
長い時間太陽に照射されたら、肌に悪いので、オーストラリアの一般社会は政府に皮膚癌についてよく注意されています!

(日本語が下手だ。。。笑)

さて、英語で書こう。。。笑。

This is only a scientific blog about UV rays, BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORING!

THANK YOU!
If you care about your skin and you live in Australia (we are obsessed about sunrays, sunblocks, sunscreens, skin cancer bla bla bla bla) then I hope this blog will give you adequate information on how to have HEALTHY skin.

It is no longer a secret, freckles are caused by the sun.
They pop up because the outer barrier against the sun ray's are overly damaged so they come as abnormal collection of melanin pigment in the skin.

Now, I am not pale, I have yellow skin tone because most east Asians are or my other fellow South East Asians, kudos to you lovely coloured skinned people. LOL

I don't want to blab too much about skin colour or freckles but I always stress how destructive the sun UV rays can be.

Based on this scientific article that the sun emits UVA and UVB.
The UVB does not damage the deeper skin layers but the UVA does and far more carcinogenic compared to its counterpart.

So when you see sunlight, the UVB only represents 5-6% and the rest is UVA.

I am not interested in the what-why... I am interested in HOW to counter the dangerous rays that damage your skin!

What I often do is I slap on sun screen on my face, in Australia the government only allows SPF30+, but never more than that.
How do I know? I asked a cosmetician, surely she knows.

I own several hiyakedome that are SPF 50+ with pearl shimmer too he he he he
And I use them lots of times, but according to what the research suggests, we can not rely on sunscreens alone acting as the only barrier against the harmful sunrays!

Interesting enough, we have quite a high number for skin cancer in Australia, is it because we are near to the ozone hole? LOL Well it is in Antarctica, far far far away...
Or do other countries experience the same problem? Or is it only the fair skin homo sapiens that are more prone to this problem?

Ah, need more research but just questions. LOL
Thanks for reading about my first topic.
------------------------------------------------------------
Next, I am ready to go on a 3-day retreat! I am nervous... ugh, but hopefully everything will be fine.

I kind of miss the retreat in Japan, it was my 1st time in public bath, no cubicles except for the toilets. LOL

I need to stop comparing Australia and Japan, it is not the same he he he
Just..... missing that country and all the roots that I have planted before there.......................

Someday I will return to my beloved Rising Sun.

Cheers,
Sasa

Hillsong - Love You So Much

In this early morning, I felt a sudden shudder to praise my King.

Random blog but a very nice song to worship.
I realise, even though you have a stable job, an intellectual mind, a great husband/wife, helping others through charity etc, you still have that empty void and keep asking what is that knocking in my heart and why does it feel empty?

Maybe you can hear out this song and who knows it touches that empty void.



Love,
Sasa
