Not Horsey,

Standard

But Mei-Shun got back one bag of sugar. It is said 天高く馬肥ゆる秋=good autumn with sky high, horses plump in ancient China to make Han people prepare for assaults from northern enemy. Of course such a warning has been changed to mean nice weather of current season, yet cool air tends to lure dieters into couch (sweet) potato. Time has come to stand up for workout.

Wall Cleared

Standard

Ms. I finally told Mei-Shun that she has become ready to take certificate exam for Grade 4 of horsey-back riding. Wow, it’s cost her just 2 months compared to last whole year in normal lessons. She is happy to know how effective it is; private lessons require extra expenditure of course, yet let you recognize critical points to learn while normal ones to enjoy combination with other students.

Poor Whites

Standard

Vanilla-san, you cannot take part in classes from 10 : 30 to 16:00. Summer sunlight hurts you into gasps, although your coat is said to block it. Oh, you are also injured on the back, caused by your own perspiration and friction with leather saddles. Mei-Shun feels so sorry for reserving you in intensive gallop lessons. And Maria-chan, please do not hesitate to say that you are too exhausted to work.

Turn Right

Standard

Mei-Shun has taken lessons on horseies going counterclockwise for over a whole year. Maybe because of it, she feels somehow weird within left groin these days. Earnest practice is important, yet too much could be pernicious. That seems to resemble typhoons which revolve ever-to-the-left, often give violent downpour rather than expected watering. So she asked Ms. I for good balance in a private, clockwise curriculum.

She Made It

Standard

Partly thanks to many summer days (over 25 degrees Celsius) and a few mid-summer days (over 30 degrees) in recent 4 weeks, Mei-Shun has reached the goal weight. So happy to see the scale, a bit worried about the celerity — it seems a bit too short a time to lose nearly 3 bags of sugar. She must be very careful to remain in her current condition for at least one month before going further.

Dance & Diet

Standard

This tiny flower was found blooming on an arrangement plate celebrated Mei-Shun’s performance on stage two years before. It might kindly come to remind her of the days strictly controlled in preparation. Yes, too much weight could be a disturbance for dancers, while for horseies as well. With lunar April starts from today, she wishes to lose another bag and a half of sugar soon. 

Save Storage

Standard

Mei-Shun has asked too much: she has a lot of dresses unzipped in her closet, scores never read on Ms. Piano. Feeling sorry for them, she decided to stop ordering any of them this year. Trend in vogue? Well, it does not matter to her who knows what goes well with her, lives with the best adviser. The former would encourage her who tends to make herself fit clothes.
