Flavor Combinations

Hello everyone!

 

Do you like to cook? I do! It's an interesting way to be creative. I like to try different flavor combinations. It's very surprising what kinds of combinations go well together. For example, sweet and salty flavors don't sound like they'd go together, right? Yet, salted caramel is quite a popular flavor!

 

Some of my favorite combinations are spicy/sweet, savory/salty, and sweet/sour. What kinds of flavor combinations do you like?

Chinese New Year 2020

Hi Everyone

 

Chinese New Year begins this week on 25th January 2020. This year's zodiac sign is that of the rat; it is the first of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. The Rat tricked the Ox into giving him a ride. Then, just as they arrived at the finish line, Rat jumped down and landed ahead of Ox, becoming first.

 

The Rat is also associated with the Earthly Branch (地支—dì zhī) Zi (子) and the midnight hours. In the terms of yin and yang (阴阳—yīn yáng), the Rat is yang and represents the beginning of a new day.

 

In Chinese culture, rats were seen as a sign of wealth and surplus. Because of their reproduction rate, married couples also prayed to them for children.

 

What's your zodiac sign?

 

Regards

Cars

Hello, everyone! 

If you have entrance exams coming up, I wish you the best of luck! I have a bit of a challenge coming up, too. I have recently decided that I would like to try to drive in Japan. 
But, it's scary! 
In America, people drive their cars on the right. They can even turn right when the signal is red! Here, it is very different. In Japan, driving is on the left. I hope I can learn all of the rules properly so that there isn't any trouble! 
Let's do our best, okay?

Diversifying my repertoire of reading material

Hi Everyone

 

I hope your preparations for entrance exams are going well. Recently, I have started reading more Chinese and South Korean manhua/manhwa. The stories are rather good and they are released at a much faster rate than Japanese manga. I have found them to be rather enjoyable despite the art quality not being as clean as their Japanese counterparts. If you're like me and left biting your nails till the release of the next chapter of your favourite mangas, they might be a good way to fill the void.

 

Kind regards

 

John

年末年始

こんにちは、佐々木です。

 

4月に行われるボディメイクの大会に向けて減量をしているのですが、年末年始は家族や友人と食事をする機会が多く、思うように減量できませんでした。目標は残り約3か月で−6kgです。初めての減量なのでどうなるかわかりませんが、諦めずにがんばりたいと思います。

New Years

Hi, everyone! 

 

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a relaxing New Years. This year, I was able to go to the shrine for New Years, and it was an experience I will never forget! I prayed and got my fortune- something that isn't really done in America. In America, many people will have a party. It is tradition to give the person you love a kiss at midnight; but, if a person doesn't have a romantic partner, they will hug a friend or family member. 

 

Personally, I really like the way New Years is celebrated in Japan. I think it's a very unique and beautiful way to welcome the new year. 

 

Let's all do our best this year. I wish you all good health, fat wallets, and happiness! For those of you with exams coming up, I hope you will all make excellent scores. Take a break when you need to, and study hard- you can do it!
