So this date has come to Shin and Mei-Shun. They miss a little 茅の輪=Chi-no-Wa and paper doll ceremony at Kiji (=Pheasant) Shrine in Gotanda while never stopped enjoying this sweet delicacy in the morning. After that, he went aboard for Hong Kong on business while she visited Master Mei-Shu. She said that her own instructor passed away at 91 yesterday, meaning that 師範 test for her student could be postponed for a while.

Joy of Diet

Standard

Mei-Shun’s 8-hour-carbo/candy-first methods have seen 2 months. They are going so-so, allowed her to lose nearly three bags of sugar in total. Another manner has been introduced recently to get on a scale after enough perspiration, good stool and empty stomach — they give the minimum weight. Mental health is one of the most important factors for sustainable management, isn’t it?

 

Change Color

Standard

That seems why hydrangeas are said to carry messages like “whim” and “arrogance”. On the other hand, blue flowers have “patient love” while “humbleness” with lace caps. Mei-Shun has to thank to the Ys, because they let us enjoy not only the last one in violet but also pink gradation. And she is happy to do so to mom, who really represents sky-blue following below in her garden. Dad, you loved it so much as well.

Tokyo Chinese

Standard

Not meaning those who live there with the nationality, Mei-Shun visited her favorite dian-xin restaurant in Shinbashi today. She and Shin enjoyed a lunch course including appetizer, soup, shrimp dish, beef one, steamed rice ball, fried rice and dessert. She would not like to mention that place, in order to keep it quiet. This is therefore especially for you kind followers.

Second Time

Standard

Mei-Shun fell from horseback again. It seemed better than the first, horrible one in which she hit muddy ground on left hip. She nearly got off Tie Crescent from legs, staggered a little to kneel. Thanks to a vest with airbag, she had no hurt.

However, failure is failure. Actually, she might know the reason: she felt something weird in riding technique, let her concentration wander.

 

 

Slightest Moon

Standard

We will see 朔 of lunar June tomorrow, which means the best day to make a wish with 大安=tai-an. It is the best luck in 六曜=roku-yo, one of 暦注=reki-chu which means fortune of each date and direction written on solar calendar. Ah-ha, Mei-Shun did not understand these words before starting this weblog. She is so thankful to you kind followers: it is you who make her learn more.

 

Happy to Play

Standard

Mei-Shun made it: she finally found piano scores which she had been looking for at a musical instruments shop! “A Maiden’s Prayer” by T. Badarzewska reminds her of long-forgotten tune by her mother who sometimes played this and Beethoven’s “For Elise”. Others include “Le Cygne” by C. C. Saint-Saëns and a best album featuring Studio Ghibli‘s animation films by J. Hisaishi.
