Daily Prompt: Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)
What is the best dream you’ve ever had? Recount it for us in all its ethereal glory. If no dream stands out in your memory, recount your worst nightmare. Leave no frightening detail out.

Since my mother passed away , I saw her in my dream once.
She loved to eat but during staying in a hospital, she had to do food restriction and she stressed out.
And then she couldn’t go home anymore. I hope she eats a lots in the heaven.
But in the dream, she told me “Maya,there’s no food today. ”
I met my mom and so glad to see her but at the same time, I became to worry her. A few weeks later, my aunt called me and I talked about the dream and she was quite surprised because she didn’t serve rice to family Buddhist alter for a couple days when I saw my mother in the dream.
I always welcomed to meet her in dream 🙂


When I was your woman

I was listening to “I was your man” by Bruno Mars.
I am very touched.
The phrase It all just sounds like oooooh…
Mmm, too young, too dumb to realize
That I should’ve bought you flowers
And held your hand
Should’ve gave you all my hours
When I had the chance
Take you to every party
Cause’ all you wanted to do was dance
Now my baby’s dancing
But she’s dancing with another man

What I came up with was my ex.
He’s Korean-Canadian but much Korean culture in his home and strict to dating girls. So he asked me to go through this. But I couldn’t do that.
My lyric is …
I Should’ve gave understand your situation and held your hand
Should’ve listened to you when I have a chance. Save you from there
Cause’ all you wanted to do was staying with me Now where’s my baby ?

Life made by lots of regrets and every time we think it over and sometimes grow up. I am just saying…..
What I can say is I never regret to love him 🙂

Load to glory!

Sochi Olympic is finally over.
I watched great scenes a lots and brought me tears sometimes.

Speaking of Japanese athletes, I can’t ignore Mao Asada. She is the No.1 Japanese female figure skater and all Japanese expected her winning a gold medal but she couldn’t. Her performance in short program gave me quite a shock but didn’t disappoint me. I was just worried about her.
I didn’t watchable live broadcast of free program due to time differences.
The morning after free program, I checked the internet news and watched morning news on TV. I saw her tears and her face after performance.
She did very well! I felt it through her face. It wasn’t about a medal but she made people moved.

We aim a result but her free program was more than a gold medal.
She felt pressure and might be scared. That must be more than we expected and there were each story to get here, Sochi.

There is another story at semifinal in cross country.
Russian athlete’s ski was broken and Canadian coach gave him replacement.
It’s a sweet story and warm-hearted ! It’s not only just fight with enemy but also we don’t know what’s happening.


Again thank you for lots of throbs !

Daily Prompt: Walking on the Moon

Daily Prompt: Walking on the Moon
What giant step did you take where you hoped your leg wouldn’t break? Was it worth it, were you successful in walking on the moon, or did your leg break?

Looking back my life so far, experience going to oversea alone was my giant steps. My first alone trip was visiting my friend in the U.S.A. and at that time, my English wasn’t so good but I wasn’t scared. I was just thrilled with it and felt that I was cool. Maybe it’s just because I made money and was able to spend money for only myself and boarding a flight myself.
In the states, I was so depressed about my English skill and there were all white people so felt isolated a little. But they were very nice and had a great conversation too. In the bottom line was my trip was successful 🙂

Daily Prompt: Tainted Love

Daily Prompt: Tainted Love
Ever been dumped by a boyfriend or girlfriend? Was it a total surprise, or something you saw coming? Tell us your best worst breakup story. Never been the dumpee, always the dumper? Relate the story of a friend who got unceremoniously kicked to the curb. Change the names to protect the innocent if you must.

I was dumped twice before I got married.
One was in high school and another was in Canada.

In high school, I had a boyfriend for 2 years. I introduced him to my parents and we had a good relationship. I loved him very much but I was young and I didn’t know how to treat boyfriend. Maybe I asked him too much and he couldn’t take it anymore. Before graduation , he asked me to break up.
I couldn’t believe it and he said “I am not the one who suits you.”
We decided to go to college in the same city so we thought of marriage as well. I was very sad and I cried lots but now I really appreciate him to teach me lots of things. He was a kind, hard worker, gentle and handsome.
He always made me feel special.I still am so proud of his girlfriend.

Next, in Canada , I had a boyfriend who is Korean-Canadian.
We were pen pal for over 1 year before I went to Canada and there was a chance that he visited Japan and we met. We went to Kyoto together and it was so fun!! And then, I had a chance to live in Toronto, Canada and we started dating. One of my unforgettable memory is watching firework in niagara fall. I was happy to be with him and felt we were fate.
We traveled to New York and had a great time too. But it turned out to be a nightmare. The reason was I had another pen pal and kept contacting.
I guess he was mad at me because of the male pan pal and I could learn English with him or his friends.
I didn’t mean hurt him but at the end of day, I did. And I felt very sorry.
That’s the point he decided to break up with me.
I was told by him “We are over and I can’t keep believing you.”
Probably there was language barrier so I couldn’t tell him my 100% thought.
Since then, I had chances to meet foreigners and had a romance but I couldn’t be a couple. Because I’ve known language and background are very important to communicate for a couple and miscommunication brings unexpected things. Talking with friends in English is so fun and we can cover each other but Not for my boyfriend and my husband.
So I still keep leaning English. Even though I am married to Japanese.

I became dumpee twice but never regret to being their girlfriend and that experience lead me to my husband.

Good bye doesn’t exist

I got a call from my cousin which is my grandma’s younger sister passed away due to heart failure. She attended my wedding and she lived in a city 50 kms away. She got married to a man who was running own business. So she tried hard to be a good wife and a mother. I am sure it wasn’t easy way to be here. Now I am married but I don’t have difficulty that she had.
She got lots of flowers and massages at her funeral from tons of people, which is result she made efforts for the company and people.
I learned that now I try hard on everything and whet I die, how people treat me is the result so I should treat people well.

This is a part of flowers at the funeral I got.
Rest in peace , Anty.
