Good Girl

Kyoto fm Tokyo

Standard

Meow, mom purchased a few bags of candy yesterday, including above colorful balls made in our ancient capital. Since she keeps nice numbers on a scale, never cares if an English textbook calls her “d.e.b.” meaning plumpy. And I’m a good girl enough, never tries to punch them on the floor. By the way, it is really cool today compared to recent several days. A treat for us, isn’t it? Purr … purrr …

Stormy Sun

Standard

Mei-Shun cleaned up rooms in earlier morning, avoiding harsh sunlight which leads to a lot of beads on her face. She reserved a hair salon nearby Tokyo Station in the evening, leaving home around 15 : 00. Just before opening the door, Shin gave her a message that it rains hard there. However, the wife found no teardrop on train windows nor streets outdoors. It might be a sudden downpour.

Midsummer Msg

Mei-Shun takes it normal to hear cicada breeds sing one after another. They starts from tenor buzzing in July followed by similar in bass, osin-tuk-tuk and her favorite canna-canna. At the end of this month, ming-ming voices sound like telling children that their vacation would soon over. However, 2022 let her recognize the last first, then high-pitched buzz has come. Who would be the next guests?

Edible Egg

This August starts from Monday. Yes, Mei-Shun is ready to spend well the hottest month of the year. And happy birthday, mom. She went to cool 草津 from the middle of last month, plans to stay there until September. It is her custom since beloved dad departed 13 years before, so their two daughters have to congratulate her indirectly via phone or e-mail.

Lunar July starts from today. So Ms. Piano, could you join Mei-Shun to sing scores honoring that gentle lady who stays behind dark sky tonight? By the way, “gecko” sounds like her light in our language. He/She might therefore mean the same appearing on a kitchen window from a few days before. Thanks a million for your protection — we hope our brightness indoors helps to serve you enough dinner.

Dining Delicacy

Standard

It was my 1st long trip with dad and mom, purr. He takes the most trips on business, both at home and abroad. She sometimes makes a short excursion as far as Tokyo, while has never visited foreign countries for a dozen years. The latter excludes driving to a horsey riding club accompanied by me, where she completely consumed gorgeous plates at a French restaurant in Kyoto.
