Luisa’s 13th Birthday

Filed under: Life with Felines — RICKY @ 8:21 pm
Pic1 Luisa: "How the heck do I get outta here?" Pic2 Atomo: "I did it - I'm in!" Pic3 Zafiro: It stinks to be the smallest. I'm always last. I got Luisa a very cute red and beige Minnie Mouse travel carrier basket for her 13th birthday (see pics). Only problem - she doesn't really enjoy spending time in it. Atomo and Zafiro on the other hand were eager to try out the new comfy cat basket and waited their turns impatiently. 札幌の英語の先生、札幌のスペイン語の先生、札幌英語先生、札幌スペイン語先生、英語のブログ、BLOG、会話、英語英会話、札幌の先生、札幌先生、英語の語学スクール、スペイン語の語学スクール、札幌英会話、英会話、English teacher in Sapporo, maestra de español。

Summer delayed

Filed under: Sapporo Summer, So Japanese — RICKY @ 8:07 pm
Typical summer decoration Is this the extremely delayed start of summer I'm wondering? Cause the weather had been very un-summerish till today, to say the least. Well, if it stays as hot as it is right now then that's cool with me. 札幌の英語の先生、札幌のスペイン語の先生、札幌英語先生、札幌スペイン語先生、英語のブログ、BLOG、会話、英語英会話、札幌の先生、札幌先生、英語の語学スクール、スペイン語の語学スクール、札幌英会話、英会話、English teacher in Sapporo, maestra de español。

That was our Movie Night

Filed under: News & Events, So Japanese — RICKY @ 6:57 pm
Thank you all for attending our movie night! The flick we watched was cool and action-loaded - but the party that followed was even better! Thanks to Kenji for picking that really nice Izakaya with Chinese and Korean food. I still remember that look when I mixed sweet and sour pork with a rice dish ... Kenji exclaimed "That's very American!" I had a ball and learned a few new things about Japanese culture. At kaitenzushi restaurants ("conveyor belt sushi" aah that sounds yucky) local people usually do not touch the sushi that's on the belt - they order from the menu instead. Why? They say it is fresher. Does it really matter if the fish has been going round and round for ten minutes? To Japanese it does! For me half of the fun is seeing the sushi coming my way and waiting with anticipation to grab it! About an hour into the dinner Yui showed up with her best buddy, both tipsy lol, and so did Kanako who had been celebrating her birthday. Well we celebrated her even more at the Electric Sheep Bar, our next stop, and Ari - a real Mexican gentleman - carried my heavy bag for me. In case you were wondering what was in it - that's a secret, lol. The bar was quiet for a Saturday night, good for us because we got the best table. The drinks were nice & exotic as usual and we drank the entire menu of martinis and mojitos as we always do. Thanks everybody for coming, Ikuko, Yuko, Nao, Mayumi (she and I were wearing matching pink Zara blouses) and Yuki of course, our most regular party guest. She and I live in the same neighborhood and we actually had a small accident on our way home ... And I even have a souvenir from this memorable night: I pilfered Ari's funky flashing neon lighter ... I wonder if he noticed, lol. 札幌の英語の先生、札幌のスペイン語の先生、札幌英語先生、札幌スペイン語先生、英語のブログ、BLOG、会話、英語英会話、札幌の先生、札幌先生、英語の語学スクール、スペイン語の語学スクール、札幌英会話、英会話、English teacher in Sapporo, maestra de español。

Japan: The things I love III

Filed under: So Japanese — RICKY @ 4:42 pm
Japan's biggest asset are the people Traveling is great but it always feels good to come back. The many thoughtful people are Japan's biggest asset and make living here worthwhile. To talk about a recent experience outside of Japan, as soon as the plane touched down in Dubai, passengers (mostly Middle Eastern and Western) jumped up, opened the overhead compartments and headed for the exits. I have never seen such impatience in Japan. Also, in Dubai malls, shoppers never give way, not even an inch. They prefer to bump into you rather than move a bit to the side. Don't get me wrong, I love Dubai for its glitz and glamour - but the people seem quite selfish. If you could find a place as beautiful as the Arabian desert filled with people as nice as the Japanese, that would be paradise I guess, lol. See what others think. 札幌の英語の先生、札幌のスペイン語の先生、札幌英語先生、札幌スペイン語先生、英語のブログ、BLOG、会話、英語英会話、札幌の先生、札幌先生、英語の語学スクール、スペイン語の語学スクール、札幌英会話、英会話、English teacher in Sapporo, maestra de español。

Summer treats

Filed under: Sapporo Summer, So Japanese — RICKY @ 6:48 pm
Due to the brevity of summer in Hokkaido people celebrate it like nowhere else - especially when it comes to edible things and seasonal items. There are numerous foods that are consumed only during the hot months such as watermelons, cantaloupes and peaches. Fruity sorbets replace rich ice creams prevalent in winter, and shoved ice with exotic fudges like matcha or anko are bestsellers at convenience stores and outdoor food stalls. Then there's eel day (last Saturday), in Japanese "doyo no ushi no hi", and this is often incorrectly translated as "ox Saturday", hence the queston "Why do Japanese people eat eel on beef day?" On this day the price of charcoal grilled eel (unagi) goes up by as much as 300 %. Unagi is another delicacy among the numerous Japanese food choices, however, I consider it winter food because it is a) fatty b) eaten hot. On the other hand, Japanese people eat more sushi in the winter even though it is cold and raw and in my opinion makes for perfect summer food! Due to the lack of airconditioning in many buildings you will also see quite a few people with "uchiwa" - round manual paper fans - during July and August. I recently heard from a student that even buildings in southern cities like Tokyo or Osaka are usually not equipped with airconditioning, and I vaguely remember the hot and humid summer during my one-time-stint in both cities. My student mentioned that spending the hot season in the south of Japan without airconditioning really makes us aware that summer is here and hence people enjoy that custom. The drink of choice in summer is beer - the Odori beer garden opened earlier this week, right after Ocean Day - and canned cocktails in tropical flavors. I guess time for me to run down to Lawson and get a pineapple cooler and some nata de coco - another summer favorite. That little Lawson in my building is pretty well stocked with one exception - they don't carry the indispensable watermelon suika summer ice bar! 札幌の英語の先生、札幌のスペイン語の先生、札幌英語先生、札幌スペイン語先生、英語のブログ、BLOG、会話、英語英会話、札幌の先生、札幌先生、英語の語学スクール、スペイン語の語学スクール、札幌英会話、英会話、English teacher in Sapporo, maestra de español。

DLS Movie Night

Filed under: News & Events — RICKY @ 5:06 pm
My first choice for our upcoming Movie Night was the multiple award-winning "Slumdog Millionaire" - I saw it on the plane to Dubai and it is def worth all the prizes and attention. However, the flick is not in video stores yet. My second choice was the all-time summer favorite "Vacation" with Chevy Chase and again I was unlucky. So I picked the latest Indy Jones, lots of action guaranteed. We'll watch Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull next Saturday at our DLS Movie Theater. See you there! 札幌の英語の先生、札幌のスペイン語の先生、札幌英語先生、札幌スペイン語先生、英語のブログ、BLOG、会話、英語英会話、札幌の先生、札幌先生、英語の語学スクール、スペイン語の語学スクール、札幌英会話、英会話、English teacher in Sapporo, maestra de español。

It’s hot …

Filed under: Sapporo Summer — RICKY @ 6:44 pm
Today the Tanabata Festival is observed on the main island, in Hokkaido we celebrate it a month later on August 7. I heard the reason is that the summer here is delayed - I wouldn't say so, looking at today's thermometer indicating 30 degrees, and summer flowers in full bloom (see pics). 札幌の英語の先生、札幌のスペイン語の先生、札幌英語先生、札幌スペイン語先生、英語のブログ、BLOG、会話、英語英会話、札幌の先生、札幌先生、英語の語学スクール、スペイン語の語学スクール、札幌英会話、英会話、English teacher in Sapporo, maestra de español。

Cherry season

Filed under: Sapporo Summer, So Japanese — RICKY @ 7:51 pm
Among the nicest things in the Japanese summer is the gift-giving tradition. Eligible presents are produce, canned foods, edible souvenirs, beer and anything that's useful and practical. Solid soap bars and salad oil are popular gifts - quite different from Western culture where presents are meant to make someone feel special i.e. something that the person usually wouldn't buy for themselves are thought to make good gifts. I got a box full of cherries and they were useful (edible!) and made me feel good at the same time, lol (see pic) 札幌の英語の先生、札幌のスペイン語の先生、札幌英語先生、札幌スペイン語先生、英語のブログ、BLOG、会話、英語英会話、札幌の先生、札幌先生、英語の語学スクール、スペイン語の語学スクール、札幌英会話、英会話、English teacher in Sapporo, maestra de español。

2012

Filed under: News & Events — RICKY @ 7:23 pm
From the director of "Independence Day" and "The Day After Tomorrow" - here's the first trailer of the long awaited SciFi Thriller "2012" WATCH HERE The introduction starts like this: Never before has a date in history been so significant to so many cultures, so many religions, scientists, and governments. A global cataclysm brings an end to the world and tells of the heroic struggle of the survivors. Now if you've been socially active or a regular net-surfer than you've certainly heard similar stuff numerous times. There are thousands of websites dedicated to the year 2012, some claiming it is the end of the world, others believing it is the beginning of something new and yet others designed to put an end to escalating doomsday worries. What triggered this curious craze - or should I say crazy curiosity - about 2012 is the fact that the Mayan Calendar ends on December 21, 2012 (12-21-2012). The Maya were a highly advanced pre-Columbian civilization on the Mexican Yucatan and Guatemala, and they had accurate knowledge about the movements of the planets. Their greatest achievement, however, was the invention of a calendar of remarkable accuracy and complexity - The Mayan Calendar. And just as the sudden decline of their civilization remains a mystery, so does the fact that their calendar comes to an abrupt end in 2012. So, what can we really expect? I'd say that's all up to your attitude and belief system. Personally I think that it is the start of something great. A major shift in consciousness that will make people more aware than ever of what's really going on, what matters and what doesn't. Can't wait! 札幌の英語の先生、札幌のスペイン語の先生、札幌英語先生、札幌スペイン語先生、英語のブログ、BLOG、会話、英語英会話、札幌の先生、札幌先生、英語の語学スクール、スペイン語の語学スクール、札幌英会話、英会話、English teacher in Sapporo, maestra de español。

Undercover Mouse

Filed under: Life with Felines, Zafiro — RICKY @ 3:13 pm
Kitty Paradise! I ordered this toy from the US and my cats are NUTS about it! It is an electric mouse running under a nylon cover at various speeds. Luisa, Atomo and Zafiro sit around the yellow cover as if they were waiting in front of a mousehole, attacking everytime the mouse comes near. This keeps them occupied for hours and they never seem to get tired of it. Great toy I must say! On another note, Zafiro had his post-surgery checkup today and all is well, thank God and thanks to the excellent veterinarians at Ishiyamadori Veterinary Clinic. Nice surprise, today's consultation was free of charge, and I got free cat food on top of that! By the way, I find Ishiyamadori Clinic's consultation fee generally more competitive than other veterinary clinics'. To give you an example, I paid 8000 yen for Zafiro's surgery (neutering), the blood test was 4000 yen though and that added up to 12,000 but that's still a lot lower than the 20,000 that many clinics charge. What's costly are the drugs - prescription medicine and vaccines, and that's the same with any veterinary clinic. 札幌の英語の先生、札幌のスペイン語の先生、札幌英語先生、札幌スペイン語先生、英語のブログ、BLOG、会話、英語英会話、札幌の先生、札幌先生、英語の語学スクール、スペイン語の語学スクール、札幌英会話、英会話、English teacher in Sapporo, maestra de español。
