Spring Delicacy

Standard

White asparaguses arrived from Europe. It is only once an year when Shin and Mei-Shun can enjoy them, a genuine luxury. In order to avoid fiber streaks entering between your teeth, do not spare peeling of them. Boil them in a deep pan until ivory changes into pearl white. Mayonnaise and truffe salt would be a nice dip while melted butter, lemon juice and salt would serve for a superb experience.

Started Español

Standard

Mei-Shun has learned English, French and Chinese so far. In order to cover more region on the globe, she decided to step out for another major language. There is no problem for her to pronounce Spanish except for “rr” where the tongue have to be curled before trembled. Grammar resembles French, easy to learn. She enjoys it, feeling how simple and convenient English is.

Missing Stage

Standard

Mei-Shun is energized to receive a tentative program from Master 坂東=Bando on her party’s performance in April, Tokyo. The former has rarely seen other dancers in full makeup, wigs and costumes on stage so far. Another happiness comes from Prof. M who joined 菊ノ上流 a few years ago. He recently asked Mei-Shun to become his new tutor in Japanese dance taking over Master Mei-Shu’s business.

Welcome Back

Standard

Dear Mr. Diamond, we have been looking forward to seeing you again: it took as long as two months to make you up. Mei-Shun’s late father, the previous owner would be pleased as well. And do you know, it is the last day of lunar January today. Shall we go to the nearest shrine tomorrow to make a wish on the best day? White plum trees are in full bloom there, while cherry trees grew buds from pale yellow to red.

White Out

Standard

It is amazing. Although weather forecasts said that it would snow today, Mei-Shun believed it by half. When she heard a light sound beating windows at noon, she took it as a rainfall. Oh, a lot of feathers come down from cloudy sky, sometimes fly around before reaching the ground. Next-door sasanqua or smaller camellia flowers have already put on little caps.

 

 

Her Saddle(^o^)/

Standard

Thank you so much, Shin. He is so generous to allow Mei-Shun to own a saddle to put on horsey’s back. They would call this one shining in black Mr. Sirius, honoring the maker. And today is his debut on Madoka-chan in Ms. I’s lesson. He is still a bit too hard to handle, especially in belt to tie around horsey’s nose. Careful treatment is incumbent after riding to keep his elegance.

Super Star

Standard

Ms. Scarlet has finally come to us. Under the bright supermoon last night, Shin received her from his brother-in-law on behalf of Mei-Shun: she is not allowed to go out at night right now, even in the garden. She rushed to her this morning, found easy-to-learn numbers put on the plate. Hello darling, kindly let your mom start you for a trial drive. Oh? How to start your engine??
