Kaijin lunch event


There was a lunch event in our Kaijin school today. Neil cooked some English dishes for the students who attended. They told me that their image of English dishes was that they were not so delicious but they discovered that that image was wrong! Well done, Neil, because you are a good cook!

I missed the chance to take a photo when they were eating some dishes!

Smoky Java(coffee)

I had some of our smoky Java coffee yesterday. I sometimes have it at home but I don’t make it the proper way. I use a normal coffee- maker but I had some of the proper staff at our cafe yesterday. The taste was really fantastic! It really suits the cold weather, I think.

Hello, everybody!

Today was the kid’s lessons day. Although it was really freezing they were so energetic!

During the lessons, they said “Please stop the heater! It’s too hot!” One of them surprisingly said ” I feel too hot! Can I open the windows?”

I went to Ueno Zoo on Sunday-it was quite cold but sunny as well so not too freezing. I really enjoyed watching the penguins and polar bears and it was nice to walk in the park afterwards as well. Last time I went to Ueno in the summer, I couldn’t see the polar bears it was so crowded! Are there any other good zoos to visit locally or further away in Japan?

Leek and Potato Soup

Hello, everyone!

Last month, we held a combined ‘chat while you cook’ lesson, a new event for us. We made leek and potato soup. Fortunately, the soup turned out quite well, I think, and we enjoyed eating it very much , so if you’d like to join, feel free to contact the school.

Petrol station

Hello, everybody!

Today is really freezing, isn’t it?

Because of this weather, I find our kerosene runs out so quickly! Today, when I was filling the tank of our heater, unexpectedly the kerosene ran out, which made me think to myself ” What? Already?” so I had to go to a petrol station. When I got there, there were so many people waiting to get kerosene!

I couldn’t believe my eyes!

Kid’s umbrella! はコメントを受け付けていません

Kid’s umbrella!

Hello, everybody!

A couple of days ago, the weather was terrible, wasn’t it? On that day, I saw the funniest sight I have ever seen!

Before I let you know about it, I should introduce the person who was cast as the lead in this story. It was Neil, who is our school principal.

He’s well-educated, so he’s the one who wrote all the pages in our course books. He’s also the lead keyboard player in the English Village Band. He’s the one who organises the structure of our live shows and writes songs. He looks quite serious. For all that, on that day, when he arrived at the Kinshicho school, he said “Hello, it’s freezing, isn’t it?” Misato and I said ” Yes”and looked at his umbrella, which was obviously a very vivid yellow small kid’s umbrella!! I said ” What’s that kid’s umbrella?” He said ” I couldn’t find any decent ones. I could only find this one so there was no choice!” I just couldn’t help bursting out laughing cos I couldn’t help picturing him using that kid’s umbrella with a perfectly serious look on his face!

At night, when I thought back on it, I laughed about it again and again!
