No JLPT Till…

Writing this from my phone. Computer is exhausted, tablet laptop on updates.

I was all excited to sign up for the upcoming Japanese Language Profiency Test (JLPT) until… I realise that there is no way to take the test on Sundays as Sundays are working days for me.

However, I still want to take the prepetory course, as part of Xingible’s Road to Nihongo. Just that, I wonder if I really want to pack in classes on both my off days.

What would it takes to have everything smooth out for me?

Since I wouldn’t be taking JLPT in a while, the more I want to have a *MASSIVE* shift in my profiency.

I am getting sleepy as I type this. I still thought that I can squeeze in more stuff to do tonight.

Well, on a secret mission. See you all in… May it be sooooooon enough.

Teaching of This Week

One of my favourite things to do at work these days is to visit *the* Goddess colleague’s classroom and muse over all her cool-est teaching materials.


Honestly, until now… like really, I am not kidding, I had thought that whiteboard markers has only the generic BLUE, BLACK, RED and GREEN. Maybe rarely when a special meteorite visits earth, we get a purple one.


Goddess colleague had told us that finding this was a thing to her as she played with these as a child and she couldn’t find them for some while thinking that these are out of production.

(These are for children to work with to get a concept of units.)


I I was fidgeting a lot of Big Bear (Big and Small Bear is our permanent installation) a lot Goddess colleague whacked me with it later. O__O Teacher Bee was nearby and she got whacked too. xD

And check this out baby!!!

We too have a bunch of ultra realistic looking fruits and vegetables. Some of them are weighted so a potato really feels potato-ish and all. O__O S-U-G-O-I!!


Apparently this is a REAL thing. Sold in stationery shops. Also, it really isn’t a case of me having tiny hands.


I was the first kid to get a magnetic white-marker holder. This way no kiddies can pick up a marker and start getting distracted.


ALL of them will now stand on a chair.

By the way this is the work of the little bro of the pair of twins. We had some wooden sticks meant for comparing length and they started relating them to rifles and they have so much military knowledge. O__O

Having them in the class got me to really get rooted in Prof Rao’s teachings. That we can never guarantee the outcome, the only blessing comes in us giving to the process.

I have had prepared what I thought would be awesome for them but it turned into nothing-muchs and this week, just playing on the floor and filling in worksheets on the chair as tables got them to be so comfortable. ❤

The older bro actually sat by himself to read a book and little bro was thanking me the whole time when he took pieced together units to form a longer train across the room (learning about units too). EVERYTHING FELT SURREAL OMG.

We are talking about little kids who would punch my butt and tear the teacher’s teaching materials just to see how object works.

I spent the last day of my 30th human life using the glue gun for the first time. =D It was easier and more convenient than I thought.


My Birthday – 3rd March 2018

I spent my 30th birthday waking up to this;

This year I was out of my house before the day fully lighten up. The late opening of the train station nearest to me had needing to go to a further station, so gotta leave house earlier than usual.

Parents got me a black forest cake, I actually dislike baked stuff with fruits, but chomped down half the cake nevertheless.


I told Mum that my birthday wish is to meet Naoto Hiroyama (of Orange Range) and tell him that my own Mother looks like him (and if it is his fancy, would he also marry me ❤ ?). Mum rolled her eyes at me.

The Universe works in really fancy way. Who knows? =D

And a really beautiful was about this picture.


My nose literally bled. I am not even kidding. How… Like how did ALL 3 siblings turned out so HOT? And cute at the same time??? I must breath the same kind of air as their parents when I am being becoming a parent myself.

I am not sure if the Hiroyama brother naturally, instinctively always put themselves in this order. There is the oldest bro, Tetsushi, on the left, 2nd bro, Yosuke, on the right, and baby bro Naoto will always between them (go Google and you will see). Or that they have to stop and make everyone wait to get into this position. And if that is so, why???

OHHH!! And the whole thing about this picture is, an IG friend posted this on my FB wall on my birthday as a birthday greeting. She was originally from Okinawa. Also by far the *ONLY* person I know of who genuinely believes that I can enter Okinawa International University in 2020.

Little to we know, we limit ourselves a lot to the little bit of things we grow up with. For example, I only know of Summer, love the warm and hated the hotter days. Little did I know that the world has so many other seasons and whatnots.

Likewise, in the most unexpected ways, there are so many kind people out there that I never know of. I am meeting older ladies, on IG and all those who wish the best for me. I already feel strong with their well wishes.

Teaching on 3rd March 2018: One-to-one class to 2 Girls

There is a beautiful saying that to some extent we met because our highest selves agreed to.


I am so glad to have met them, more on I am glad that they have chose me to be their teacher. Rightfully in my employment contract I am a programme instructor, I am called a teacher because of that is what we usually do. There is just so much weight attached to being called a Teacher. ❤

More lovable children in my next class.


The thing with children is that, they are just so real. I makes me what to go back to Hamahiga Island and stay beside Amamichu.


I am so in love with chocolates and sweet stuff these days.


=( This has little to no earl grey though!! But lightly flavoured so I guess it is healthy and nice.


On the 20th of March 2017, I ate one pack of this as dinner.


Watson sales at the mall I work in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I sO love this series!!


McDonald’s new Thai Milk Tea ice cream!! O__O It was good. I was still burping Milk Tea flavoured gas later on.


Surprise!!!! =D

Starbucks in the Sakura season!! But with zero Sakura stuff!!


There was a parent’s talk in my classroom so I worked with our translators that day. As and when I love crashing others’ room to work with them. xD ❤


Materials this week.


Was chopping up toothpicks into the correct length and as I cut them, they shot out. This was the aftermath of the room.


At times I still go out after work hours to buy materials for teaching stuff. Frankly I don’t like the part that it eats into my own time (even though boss is nice to let me take 30 minutes off) but I usually don’t remember it when it all comes into good use during classes.

I consider this an ultra good fortune. To like something sO enough.

Japanese Learning

I have heard of this Tobira series but never really get into it. Finally got like everything from it.

And for the update, I am not even 10% into my childrens’ books from last quarter!

But well, as much as I think that we need to strive, I think somethings are just so. As long as you are on the journey of it, that is the reward itself.



I know right. Surely someday Zhao Sensei. ROFL! :3



Thoughts on Moving into my 30s

The biggest thing about it all is, I am running outta time and the blessing with it, I no longer want to gamble my human life hours and minutes on flaky people. As much as each person has unlimited potential, it is also true that in our current consciousness, we only can hold on to so much.

Empty yourself and let the goodness come.

View everything from different perspectives. I am sure that towards the end of me life, no matter how OK I am with leaving, I will still ask for one more second. This is actually how important your time on earth is.

Teaching Day 002: End of Term

Recently in Japanese class, I noticed that I “suddenly” became… GOOD. Turned out, in a way, I had went down a little in terms of level, that is why. However, it is a timely thingy. I am/was in the school of, “if you throw yourself into the waters, you WILL learn how to swim.”

Still, it is good (really, really, REAAYYY GOOD!) to be using all the Japanese I know to get about in the class. IT IS LIKE I SHIFTED INTO A REALLY GOOD VIBE!! =D


Also, I tried studying in the train to/from work. Managed on the first day of the work week, then nope. xD


Hyper realistic food in the classroom. I still think my colleague is THE goddess.


Of the the week’s materials. Plastic chains that I am piecing together by units. Pretty rad isn’t it! I wonder what else are they used for if not for teaching materials. And dear people, how to I differentiate HOT and Pale pink to children?


Coffee bun. Super love it. Bitter, sweet and a dash of buttery saltiness.


This is how my Dad eats EVERY mandarin orange. O__O


Stuff with the kids.


Recently got this cheap ear piece and it really live up to the promise of GOOD BASS. I am hearing all the sounds I am hearing for the first time and OMG.

And speaking of which, I NEED to get musiQ.

Wheeee~~~ you got duped into reading this post. Nao, it is all about how much I love Orange Range!! ❤ ❤ ❤

One time Naoto got some bits of electric shock during a live when it rained. He then told others that it seems like something of his gotten smaller after than. And during secondary school, his nickname was “anaconda.”

Frankly, I don’t know why but Orange Range is the RARE, RARE, RAREEEE people who despite all these still FEELS awfully lovely to me.

And meanwhile, rejoice ebibody!!!!

Some members of High and Mighty Color (I spelt it without the U!) are back as Draco Virgo. Maki~~~~ ;___; my kokoro! ❤ ❤ ❤


Oh yeah, the term came to an end. To the kids who will move on to others stuff, thank you for being with us. And I look forward to everyone whom I will meet. I can go on and on about all the stuff at work. And I am thankful to my colleagues who all share and talk about all the happy things in class. ❤ Lovely.

Life Updates! Entry 000

Chinese New Year

SO!! It was Chinese New Year and things were good!! =D

Last day of break today and it felt really, REALLY long. So many lovely visiting this year, cousins with their kids and their kids’s kids. I am a GRAND AUNT. And there I was being Teaching Yuxing.


Then it was visiting my closest Aunt. Cousin of me Mum and they were close since young. And this Aunt cooks really amazing things. I mean it.

Teaching Life

First up! The closest toast and tea/coffee (+local delights!) stall opened. And, I was just getting milk tea and french toast. :3 Especially that they are still on promotional prices.


Love this ham and cheese toast! It look so yellow because there was a case of double yolk that day.


Our last class was awesome and again my kokoro is sO nourished with love, I can wrap my heart around Naoto before asking for love back. You get what I mean??

We were doing cross sections of fruits and vegetables and I at first worried that children will get curious with cutting and want to take the knife away themselves. ZERO case.


Not sure if this occurs in other parts of the globe, in Singapore our edible fruits often have a little sticker indicating the brand and children were all telling me to first peel the stickers before cutting the fruits. ❤

I do that, just only when I am gonna eat them.

Another thing was, I had to be really alert coz some children would say that they just want to smell the cut fruits but would secretly tries to lick them.

Generally they find the lengthwise cuts pretty fascinating and that so many seeds are revealed.


The plate under looks gorgeous eh? It was provided by Boss and is actually made of plastic. I really appreciate that Boss always have our backs. ;__;


Next, it is this game thingy from Goddess Colleague. Btw… want to know something??? Right now, EVERYONE knows and likes Johnny Entertainment groups to some extent. ;__; Also Orange Range. I can go cry now.

So, this game. Basically we get children to draw a shape they remember, or ask them things like what is the shape with 3 sides. Then we add things on and ask them what it has become now. Then it will be their turn.


And teaching props/materials is really important. With the drawing of a cone, some children tends to think that the bottom of a cone is an oval. I can’t help feel that children are so, so pure about everything.

Got me laptop coloured right before my eyes. And that child was so happy and bright about it. Sometimes it is difficult to tell a child no. One would have to go into  respecting people’s stuff, space and the following consequences; ie I gotta clean it, eats into my time and all those.

Not to say I can’t be bothered to do it, more like, by being positive, neutral and understanding towards it, children get it better themselves.


Me shoe is looking so fine here. And I just remember that I dripped Oolong tea on it one time. My Starbucks cup is amazing but with the lid covered, I drip a least half a cup of condensate when I reopen it. xD


Lunch time. Been a while that I got sweeten drinks.


And yeah, perhaps the most unexpected thing was, during this part where we got handheld mirrors out and using a doll to understand mirror reflections, they children got into angelic modes and were so happy with making faces and all those with their reflections.

The entire section was almost impossible to go on. And so I understood one thing. Whenever we think that we are not enough, it is because we picked up that idea from another person and beat it into our heads. No child would dislike their own face.

I know we are mostly grown up here, and I hope you can regain this inborn gift to as much as you can.

Also, EVERYONE loves the dolls so much my heart got overwhelmed. ;__; I think this what they say about real love is from within.

Japanese Studies

Life before the Chinese New Year holiday is basically work, studying Japanese and good sleep and fancy food. Looking at Orange Range stuff and some spiritual stuff.

I really like the structure here at Ikoma. Old school as I am, I really appreciate the homework. And I even gotten stickers to label each different weeks of stuff. I shall pass my JLPT with flying colours.


So in class we have been on this passage about OUTER LOOK. And today we are to discuss another passage on that OUTER LOOK means EVERYTHING.

Some folks agree and I can’t help but wonder why they ain’t the ones looking the sharpest and most fashionable.

During the class discussion, I said that Orange Range is popular despite looking normal, except for Ryo. And my teacher giggled at me. She then introduced Orange Range to the class. I think she is a secret fan. :3

We then all agree that Orange Range are 中身は素晴らしい!<3 ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

We only *slightly* went into talking about other musicians in Okinawa and that I have a classmate who didn’t know about Johnny Entertainment. I almost died. xD

The main point about this is!!! I spoke in Japanese for the whole part. I did you guys proud. 


Also, I happened to have an orange pen. No one pointed at it and got all judgmental. I mean, orange ink is sO common right? RIGHT?!


Spiritual Stuff

How do everyone do their stuff? I guess it is all pretty different from everybody. So, I have been into the Unlimited Abundance Live with Christie Marie Sheldon and have expanded into her other stuff.

Frankly, I used to be those who outright disagree with such courses. I thought the Unlimited Abundance were science enough, like limiting beliefs we got from childhood can continue to maim us into adulthood and stuff like that. And giving myself the chance to explore more is just… bright, amazing and light.

Investment well made for me! ❤

Dear People

I have been meeting and interacting with really amazing people and many whom I genuinely admire. I get that friends get into conflict but it really goes down to how we really feel about and treat others.

I just find everything a whole new good world and fresh air when I go out and meet people. Yeah, some are on a different frequency, and there are sO many other amazing people. I can’t even.

I want to be with uplifting people and also people who want to receive from me.

Bless you all!!!

ArtPeace 4: Rakuen Graphics


This marks my first attempt at watercolourising a logo. O__O!!!

Rakuen Graphics design stuff. Designer Youki Matsuyama started his designing work upon meeting Seiji and Tetsushi (NEENEE) in 2010. So yeah, Rakuen Graphics designed many CD jackets and music posters and the such.

And if you are overseas, you are in luck too! They designed a poster for a restaurant in Indonesia, so it is likely that they fulfill overseas requests too. Not sure about the language used though, but these days there are sO many help online. It is almost impossible to have too big a miscommunication.



It is sO cool that I gotten a little Thank You and Re-Tweet from Rakuen Graphics themselves. ❤ ❤ ❤ Frankly these got me to feel really great about it all. That over times I am reaching to people with my… art!! ❤ Yes, I am made. ❤

Project Bleach – I Need to Go Back in Time

This shall be a project that might not even happen. Or, after some feeble attempts, dissolve into nothingness.

So! For some really strange reason, during last Oct/Nov, I goolged up High and Mighty Colour‘s Days one day at work. I was doing translation and would appreciate some background music.

And the song somehow got stuck.

As I got the song on loop, I start to go into other songs and artistes of that era. As with Orange Range, I got to know them all when I was around 18, in 2005.

Our souls are always telling us things and we should really acknowledge that to the best that we can. I got the message that I have something incomplete from then. And I am just gonna complete watching Bleach and research on the musicians and all. :3 And to keep creating artpeaces to connect with them. It is insane how people are connecting with me from those. Seriously, I am living in an era that is sO different from what was before. The last generation who have played outside and only gotten the world wide web in my teens. At times, it still feels all strange that we are all connected by the www.

Are you reading this with me? Please give me some love. コメント really means Comment.

Shall just proceed with things as long as I got the time. Me is happily fulfilled these days. I am even sleeping well. ❤ And waking up equally well. It is like I totally cleared bad Karma. =D

The universe really works in very strange ways.


It is like Kami Sama heard my prayers. Maki is back with a music unit. How is that?!

Teaching Day 001; Ode to All the Onii-sans and Onee-sans

It hadn’t been too common but at times for trial classes, we do have an older sibling accompanying the younger child. And usually when the older sib needs to come in, it is that the younger is crying and not willing to come in.

And interestingly enough, the older child is always the cool type.

I will always remember the first sister I met. She called the class a baby class and she got the things in class even without reading. xD Actually it is a really lovely thing, that once they are around the primary school age, they start to be fully responsible for themselves to they best they can.

But the sweetest thing was actually that she recognised the cartoon of myself I drew on the board and sincerely asked for my name.

今日6歳のお姉さんと5歳の妹さん一緒に5歳のトライアルクラスに来ました。 お姉さんと私“あれは先生ですか?” 私、“はい、そうですよ。” お姉さん、“先生のお名前は?” 初めて子供さんが私の名前を聞いて、100%正しい発音で読んでくれました。 I AM MADE. ⭐⭐⭐💟💟💟😁😁😁 又は、“私は今年6歳よ!このベビークラスの生徒ではありません。” 子どもたちへ、皆小学校入る前わたくしに会うのは大変ありがたい。Always 宜しく致します。 #senseiz

Aspiring to be a Teacher

As I teach the oldest age group for now, I only get to see such situations in other classes. One time in the 4 year olds’ class, a Primary 1 sister came in with her brother. She was giving him water and etc.

At one point point she picked up the books at the back of the classroom and read out to herself. Frankly, I was a tad annoyed because by then some of the children were already getting restless and they started looking at her and all.

It all quieten down as soon as it started and it was soon an activity of pasting coloured paper. Seeing that there are some uncoloured cartooned, she took out her coloured pencils for her brother.

It was all ok until the boy beside them also “borrowed” the pencils and at one point the two children were grabbing at one single pencil. I panicked and OH MY GOD.

This ANGEL of a human being actually stopped the snatching before us and managed to calmed both boys. She even patted the head of the other child. I was flabbergasted and begun to reflect on my OWN life.

While re-telling this to boss and colleague, boss told us that the sister had told her (when boss took her to the toilet) that she wants to be a teacher when she grows up.

This week the brother gotta be in class alone and Mum and Sis left the boy quietly thinking that it will be good, turned out, the little kid had such a disorientation, he practically ran out of the class door with teary eyes and a fearful face. I felt like a kidnapper even when I was lightly holding him back.

I finally managed to calm him enough to wait at the reception where we folded a least a hundred boats and finally this piece of artpeace when Teacher S got him one of the class worksheets.


That morning was the first morning ever that I taught a young child how to crush paper and tear paper and how to turn more glue stick out and that we have to wait for glue to dry.

Was really thankful that the parents came earlier and the boy was so happy he went back to class all perfect.

I once read from Cheesie about children being brave. Just imagine this, just being barely 4, they have to be by themselves and all those. Even as adults, not many of us find it all ok to be by ourselves.

Candy in My Hand

The most recent case was this, a 7 year old boy with his 5 year old brother. The little boy was so much in tears, a tiny voice in me said that he might skip the lesson. Finally when he sat at the back with his brother, he stuffed a candy into my hand. The siblings got them at the reception and the older bro already opened his, but a little too cool to help his little brother to open.

I thought he changed his mind and didn’t want the candy anymore, but he told me, “Can you open it for me?”

Frankly, I tend to be the worry-type at times. I was so worried that he might choked on it or something. But at the same time my heart literally hurts to see him fidgeting with the wrapper in vain and frustration. So I kept telling him that let’t eat it after class.

Eventually I decided to trust that he is amazing and the wrapper proved too tough to be opened by me too. Then I went to get a pair of scissors. Later on, the brothers quickly dashed out and back in after getting more candies. And this time the older bro went to where I took the scissors and again I helped the younger boy opened his candy.

For some reason, when I saw that everyone is finally enjoying themselves, I got teary in my heart. It feels good to have done something humanity plus.


Usually during my break days, I have so much to blog about. If not, I can just sleep back the hours I need and whatnot. Only having a day off for this week so we can have a longer Chinese New Year break. =D

How is life going one for everyone??
