Play Another

Standard

Last year saw three new scores for Ms. Piano. Since Mei-Shun means to concentrate on study in Spanish and Japanese-teaching in 2019, she might not have enough time to augment her repertoire. Better than nothing, she would choose just one. Let her see … ah, “Jesus, Joy of Man’s Desiring” by J. S. Bach, arranged by Dame Myra Hess. It was missed at a shop before. How convenient it is, shopping on net!

Dance with U

Standard

Hi, Maria-chan, great to see you again. Do you know some members belong to our club own or rent your friends? It makes Mei-Shun feel enviable, who would like to feed, hold and brush you up every day if possible. Kindly find reasons for her impossibility follow: 1) Her place takes 30-minute drive to reach you, 2) Mikan-chan, her 15-year-old daughter, needs intensive care, 3) Her mom-in-law, 4) Her goal …

Moon Music

Standard

Closed at home by typhoons, Mei-Shun often played with Ms. Piano in the morning for these 2 weeks. It reminds her of childhood, especially summer vacation when she and her elder sister used to do the same. They managed to avoid complaints from neighbors who were not interested in, while the grown-up younger is never worried about such a matter, just misses the gentle light at night.

Lunch Beer

Standard

Just a glass of it. Light alcohol in daytime makes Mei-Shun feel that grown-ups are privileged in a way. This is a brand quite popular, summer gift from a neighbor. Japanese beer is bitter compared to European products, or at least it seems so to her. She therefore prefers to use simple soda to dilute it into panaché. Red Eye with tomato juice is not bad, yet tastes like soup rather than cocktail.

Peanut Invitation

Standard

Shin and Mei-Shun found a good soba restaurant. They had been interested in the following statue which symbolizes one of products, not business founders. Hi, great to drop in at your place for the first time. Oh? What are those sacks piled beside the shop? Peanut shells and … those of soba, meaning the latter is also available here. Ah-ha, free space for tea has evolved into this.

Sakura Bonbon

Standard

Just terrific, aren’t they? 八重桜 in 乙戸沼 Park is now in 80% blossom, seems the best for Mei-Shun. She drove Shin to the nearest station in the morning, turned to the opposite direction to home. Surrounded by aromatic pink of cherry and refreshing green of shell-like gingko baby leaves, she did some stretches. Walking had to be spared to reach her favorite hair salon in 高輪, Tokyo on time.

Pinky Princess

Standard

Mei-Shun would like to use comfortable adjectives like warm and cool more here, yet it seems we only have extreme change between torrid and freezing these days. On the other hand, plant ladies know the best timing to bloom — our garden princess already puts on a thin veil in pink, backyard plum in 80% blossom while green tea is served full in cherry.
