I met my friends in Yokohama today,
and enjoyed eating lunch with talking.
We were coworkers before,
and we meet once in a while together.
Today, we talked about how we have been
spent each other since the earthquake
and nuclear power's troubles.
After that, we enjoyed window shopping,
and I bought tarts at a famous shop for my family and me.

Follow your heart ~成功と幸せ~

Posted by mittanr on   0 comments   0 trackback

自分の心の声を信じること。。。

I took my English conversation lesson today.
And my teacher and I talked about "success and happiness".

What do you think about success?

I think it is success that he/she has achieved happiness.

And, what do you give advice to people who want to be happier?

My advice is that you choose what is the most important to you
and trust your personal choice.
I think it is important to follow your heart.

                                     
By the way, I’m planning to join a group of my English teacher,
and I will do volunteer work with them at the charity event on May 3.
I hope the weather will be fine.
If you have some time please check the website.
Have a wonderful GW holiday! 
東日本大震災 鎌倉こどもチャリティーイベント
明日からゴールデンウィークですね。日本各地で復興支援のチャリティーイベントが
開催されると思います。 私は、英会話の先生方と5/3鎌倉で開催のイベントに参加
します。お近くの方は是非いらしてくださいね。 お天気になりますよーに!

What is neem?  ~ニーム~

Posted by mittanr on   0 comments   0 trackback

ニーム、て知ってますか  

Do you know neem?

I got the dried neem’s leaves as souvenir.

I had never heard about neem.

It is unusual in Japan, but it is very famous in India as street trees.,

And neem is used to cure disease and to get rid of harmful insects.

We can enjoy it as herb, so I put the neem leaves into the bathtub
when I take a bath.

I really like it.

A Saturday night ~ヨコハマ☆サタデーナイト~

Posted by mittanr on   2 comments   0 trackback

先週の土曜日の夜 大皿料理の飲み屋 ⇒ 焼き餃子発祥の店 ⇒
立ち飲みワインバー ⇒ 和菓子屋 ⇒ カラオケ in 野毛


Last Saturday night, I went to Noge with my husband and his friends.

Have you ever been to Noge?
As a matter of fact, I went to there for the first time.
Noge is in the land side of Sakuragicho Station.
The atmosphere is different between the sea side and the land side of
Sakuragicho Station. The sea side is the modern Minatomirai area.
On the land side, there are many type of small unique restaurants and
bars in the area. One of his friends knows many shops in Noge,
so he took us to some interesting small shops.

We really enjoyed drinking ,eating ,talking and singing at there.
I thought Noge is an interesting town in Yokohama.

012_noge.jpg
There was a very small stand-drink wine bar,
and wine and cheese were delicious and the master was a cool guy.

013_noge.jpg
We bought Dorayaki and Daihuku in the famous shop.

そして・・・私は滅多に行かないカラオケですが、この時、最後の〆に歌ったのが
キャンディーズメドレーでした。 結構歌える~♪とノリノリで盛り上がり、誰のファン
だった?とお決まりの質問を男性陣にすると、答えは揃って「スーちゃ~ん!」 
そのスーちゃんが急逝したというニュースに、夫も私もとても驚きショックでした。


Welcome back ~お帰りなさい~

Posted by mittanr on   0 comments   0 trackback

今日は大好きな英会話の先生と久しぶりのレッスンでした。
大震災以来の再会、日本への想い・・一緒に泣いてしまいました。。。

I took an English lesson of my favorite teacher today.
It was the meeting again with her since the large earthquake on March 11.
She had gone to her country Canada in the spring holiday since the next
day of that earthquake.

And she came back to Japan at the beginning of April.

Actually I had been worried about she might not come back to Japan.
Because..., I think how her parents are worrying of her.
I told about my mind and thanks for her.
She said Japan is the country like her home country,
and she was very worried about the people in Tohoku.
I was very very glad to hear that, and we got tears together.

Then we talked about the information given from Japanese government.
Her opinion and my opinion were same.
Japanese government don’t give the information enough
because they are afraid of making panic by people.
We think it means Japanese government don’t trust the Japanese people.
But, on the other hand we also think they don't know what to do.
Yes, it was the too huge earthquake disaster.
Anyway, we want to do what we can do for helping the people
of disaster area.

Welcome back and Thank you for your help to Japan

Recipe for Noni ~香りのパワー~

ロイヤルタヒチ・ノニピュアを使用したレシピ提案第二弾
ハーブの香りを生かしたら、美味しいドレッシングができました

Have you ever drunk Noni drink? Actually Noni has a strange smell.
So I made the noni dressing with herb because they are often used to
remove a bad smell from meat and fish.
Today, I’d like to show you about the recipe for salad with thyme-noni dressing.

【Salad with Noni×Thyme Dressing】
103_nonir.jpg

Ingredients(Serves 2)
3 Green asparagus (アスパラガス 3本)
1 Carrot (にんじん 小1本)
White celery for topping(トッピング用ホワイトセロリ)
[Dressing]
1tsp. Noni Pure (ノニピュア 小さじ1)
1/2tbsp. EV olive oil (EVオリーブオイル 大さじ1/2)
2tsp. Red wine vinegar(赤ワインビネガー 小さじ2)
1/2tsp. Lemon juice (レモン果汁 小さじ1/2)
Thyme as you like (タイムの葉を好きなだけ)
1/4tsp. Salt (塩 小さじ1/4)
Pepper as you like (こしょう適量)

Directions
①Cut green asparagus in half and boil.
②Cut carrot in the same size as green asparagus and boil.
③Mix ingredients for dressing.
Make sure the vegetables are not boiled too much.
The fresh smell of thyme and the acidity of the wine vinegar match with
Noni-pure. And I recommend eating the salad of green asparagus and carrot
together because you can take vitamin A,C and E at the same time that
have antioxidation power.

タイムの香りとワインビネガーの酸味がノニにとても合います
アスパラとニンジンを一緒に食べることで、抗酸化作用に優れたビタミンA,C,Eを
同時に摂取できて、美白・しわ、たるみ予防効果への期待もUP
お野菜は、硬めに茹でることがポイントです

Amazing! ~伝説のスピーチ~

Posted by mittanr on   2 comments   0 trackback

I saw a video on You Tube a few days ago.
It was a film on which twelve years old girl had made a speech
at the conference of environment held in Brazil in 1992.
Her name is Severn Suzuki. It is called the legend amazing speech.
I was really impressed with her speech, and I regret I had been too carefree
until now.

What have we done for the earth and the environment,
though about twenty years passed from that time?
I’m sure we have to think about the future global environment
for not us ,but our posterity.

約20年も前、わずか12歳の少女のスピーチが大人達の心を打ったはずでした。。。
是非ご覧ください。

可愛いイチョウの若葉を見~つけた

I went to Shonan area with my husband today.
We enjoyed shopping at a flea market,

And we noticed the fresh green of maidenhair tree at a park.

A Violin Concert ~クラシックシアター~

友達に誘われ、初めて行った葉加瀬太郎コンサート。
多様なバイオリンの音色に引き込まれました~ 

My friends and I went to the Kamakura art hall to listen to the violin concert
by Taro Hakase last night. As you know, Taro Hakase is a famous violinist
who plays the music of classic, jazz, pop, etc.

In this concert, he tried a stage of new type for him. So he played a few music
of Brahms on the first stage. As a matter of fact, it was a little difficult for me
to enjoy these melody. But on the second stage, he played some kinds of
music with other string instruments players. I was very impressed with their
beautiful and exciting sounds, and we really enjoyed this concert.

And sunflower's seeds were given to us in this concert hall.
I'm going to plant the seeds in the planter in my house soon.
We hope sunflowers will bloom in this summer in all Japan.

From Glee ~信じることをやめないで~

Posted by mittanr on   0 comments   0 trackback

先週から見始めたミュージカルコメディードラマ『Glee』
 “Don’t stop believing” の動画を見つけました。
そして、Gleeには ”合唱”という意味ともう一つ。。。


I like this American TV drama.
This is a musical comedy of the glee club in a high school.
But glee club seem to be quite different between in Japan and America.
And I knew there are two meaning "joy" and "chorus" in Glee. Anyway
I'd like to recommend watching this drama to you if you want to be cheerful.
You can watch this drama on NHKBS premium from 10:00p.m on Fridays.



And my favorite sentence in this drama is
“By its very definition, Glee is about opening yourself up to joy.”
“グリーとは自分を解放し歓喜すること”

And they are the first recipes that I made for Noni.
So, they will become recipes with deep emotion for me.

東日本大震災が起こった3月11日あの時、私は丁度このレシピを作成中でした。
大きな余震が続く中、とにかく仕上げようと冷静だった自分と、怖くて不安に
陥っていた自分を思い出します。

あの日から今日で一ヶ月。
復興の兆しは見えるものの、まだ多くの行方不明者の捜索が続いている現実・・・
原発事故よる空気、水、野菜などへの様々な影響・・・
一体、私に何ができるのか。。。模索し、そして・・・祈るばかりです。

だけど、もしも・・・、太陽の恵みをいっぱいに受けて育った果物や野菜で
少しでも誰かを元気づけることができるなら・・・。
まだまだ勉強中ですが、その思いを胸に、取り組んでいきたいと思っています

and went to my sister-in-law's house in Tokyo today.

And we went to cherry blossom viewing and enjoyed
the home party together.

Cherry blossoms were very beautiful full-bloomed.
We were thankful to our ordinary life and felt happy.

Radiation ~見えない敵~

Posted by mittanr on   0 comments   0 trackback

I think nobody knows when the accident at Fukushima nuclear
power plant will solve.
And I feel really sorry for the people that live near the area.

I wonder how Japan will be in the future.
Of course, I believe Japan to get over this national crisis,
and I'm ready for the long way for recovery.

But I'm afraid of the radiation poisoning
because the professional opinion is each different.
 
Anyway we will have to judge it calmly.

震災からもうすぐ一ヶ月。
あの瞬間からこんなにも日本が変わってしまうなんて・・・
私達が本当に理解するのはこれからなのかもしれない。


The young leaves of Japanese pepper ~木の芽~

八百屋さんで山椒の小さな鉢植えを売ってました。迷わずGet


I found a pot plant of the young leaves of Japanese pepper
at a greengrocery today.
Then, I didn't hesitate to buy it because it is usually expensive.
The price was 890yen! You also think it's a special price,right?
And I like the fresh smell of them.
木の芽

So I put the young leaves of Japanese pepper on the side dish
for dinner.
It is the firefly squid and spring onion with vinegar miso.
This is a quite seasonal dish in Japan.
It is fit for sake or shochu.(^.^)
ほたるいかぐるぐる

一文字ぐるぐるは、熊本の郷土料理です。インパクトある料理名でしょ。

ぐるぐる巻きにしたものを酢味噌で頂きます。お酒の肴にピッタリなのです

I think that the shock of the food industry by the radiation poisoning is
very large.
The almost all the restaurants were not crowded though I went out to
eat recently.
I guess visitors are getting less from various reasons that include the
self-control, but I think we should go out to eat as usual to make Japan
energetic.

背後から通り抜けた茶色い影は、目にも止まらぬ速さで、

I went to Kamakura with my husband yesterday.
And we enjoyed walking around Genjiyama and Kitakamakura.
It was a beautiful and calm day.

But, we had a first shocking experience at there!
When we were eating Inarizushi on a bench, a kite whizzed through us
and took Inarizushi in a flash!! Oh my God~~!!!
We were very very surprised.
It was the happening in a split second.
And I knew it was right that the kite like deep-fried bean curd.

「鳶に油揚げをさらわれたような顔をして」を、英語では、
