Water Supply - 水の供給


We had just experienced an unforgettable 10 hours without water supply at our residence area! And you know what? My kids said they rather have no electricity supply than water supply! Because they truly had some very difficult time.When we heard the sound of the pressure caused by the water from the tap , we actually cheered up in unison !

We had to have our lunch and dinner at restaurant which needed to travel quit far from our place. And it was the normally school - work Tuesday which many schedule needed to follow. We cant flashed the toilet after using , this might be the worst for my kids.And many more other inconvenient suddenly ahead of us and disturb the normally life.

But out of all,this was the best moment for me to tell my children how important the water is ! They sure will personally feel how hard it is to survive without water supply. And hopefully they will not take everything for granted and be more aware with their day to day life.Besides,clean water is our very precious and valuable resource on earth!

Do you know"Bond"?NO...not the James Bond but the hot hot ladies group!

"Bond" is a stunningly attractive female string quartet which made up of Haylie Ecker, Tania Davis, Gay-Yee Westeroff, and Eos (who has no last name).You can have details of them here Bond .Their music seems to be an exciting and original blend of classical, world rhythms and lively dance beats. But underneath it all, one can easily recognize that all of the members of this quartet have a deep love and understanding of classical music.They are still my favorite musical group even their last released album was at 2005 !

China Olympic Mascot - 中国オリンピックのマスコット

From the official website of the Beijing 2008 Olympic games , I found many useful information about the Olympic games. I specially notice about the official mascots of the game. Love them! But actually they have important meaning to bring to the world.

From the official website it said :The Olympic Game
"Like the Five Olympic Rings from which they draw their color and inspiration, Fuwa will serve as the Official Mascots of Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, carrying a message of friendship and peace -- and good wishes from China -- to children all over the world.

Each of Fuwa has a rhyming two-syllable name -- a traditional way of expressing affection for children in China. Beibei is the Fish, Jingjing is the Panda, Huanhuan is the Olympic Flame, Yingying is the Tibetan Antelope and Nini is the Swallow.

When you put their names together -- Bei Jing Huan Ying Ni -- they say "Welcome to Beijing," offering a warm invitation that reflects the mission of Fuwa as young ambassadors for the Olympic Games.

In the ancient culture of China, there is a grand tradition of spreading good wishes through signs and symbols. Each of Fuwa symbolizes a different blessing -- and will honor this tradition by carrying their good wishes to the children of the world. Prosperity, happiness, passion, health and good luck will be spread to every continent as Fuwa carry their invitation to Beijing 2008 to every part of the globe."

Which Fuwa you love the most?

Recycle - リサイクル

How often do you have your spring cleaning?We just had ours last weekend.We were so shocked by the fact that we had kept so many "rubbish" in the house.All of us decided not to buy extra item which we do not need anymore! And we recycled whatever item that can be recycled and gave away those that still can be used. We felt happy and lightened! You should do that too!
How do you like these fantastic idea of recycling!

Decision Making

"What to eat today?", "Anything!", "Where to eat today?", "Anywhere!" ......How many time these kind of conversation happened in our daily life? Maybe countless. How I wished that was a place to eat by the name of "Anywhere" or "Anything" kind of food to order at that particularly moment! This deal with our decision and most of all patient!

Do you always have hesitation when making up decision?Specially important decision. Or do you being restricted to really make up your own mind? Under many circumstances , we really do need to consider other people feeling, thinking and opinion. We never can freely follow our will in an original form.People use to be very judgmental."Your shoes is beautiful!" ,"You look lovely today!".....are these praising or just being judgmental ? I never know. I think if it's really what exactly what you think or your true feeling ,it should be alright.Furthermore,how often can we hear some hearty praising! So in order to make most people happy , we normally become unhappy. What would you like to be?
