Happy Encounter

Standard

We have 小満=shoman, the 2nd of summer 二十四節気 today. It means every plant has grown up to reach standard size. Still too young to call them so, rice paddy spread along a lane to the nearest shrine seems already doubled in height. Are you kind followers capable of finding a wild duck couple, float like green boats on water? A white egret and a gray heron also greeted Mei-Shun.

Thai Taxi

Standard

Shin went on a business trip to the country of smile last week, took this car from a hotel to Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport. We see such flashy design on big trucks in Japan called デコトラ=deco-tra, meaning decorated trucks. It looks Thai people prefer to put it inward. And the driver served cacophony of 演歌=enka, Japanese country music for the shocked client.

Sky Drawing

Standard

Here is a photo of a cloud Mei-Shun has never seen before. She found it while walking back from the nearest shrine to home the other day. Shin is much better to take photos of mammoth creatures, kind enough to send one following below to his wife. Were you making an enormous carp stream above us? With no reply, he disappeared in a minute blown by gust.

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.

Traffic Wisteria

Standard

They are so beautiful in evening sunlight. Mei-Shun must be very careful in driving toward the horseback riding club. Narrow and winding road is included in the simplest route, which accommodates woods dressed up with those purple clusters. Sometimes white ones are seen, yet impossible to watch on the most dangerous way. That is why she asked Shin to drive the other day.

Flowery Cups

Standard

Welcome from Poland. Shin and Mei-Shun are fascinated with bowls of the same maker, chose following quartet immediately when they were found on a gift catalog offered by a credit card company. In contrast to fragile looks, they endure sultry environment in microwave, oven and dishwashing machine. That is like perfect ladies who are beautiful and strong, isn’t it?

Caps and Hats

Standard

… are among fashion items Mei-Shun loves. She found today a cute knit with a sale tag of half price! All right, since tomorrow is her lunar birthday, you would be her gift purchased by herself. And oh, you carry the same tag as well? She would like to bring both of you home. Such an exciting shopping after a tiny operation actually. Good bye, an atheroma in her left ear.
