To have a opinion is very important. I invited some Japanese friends to my home and made a mini party. Today's topic was "Japanese History", because I heard that some Japanese person was attacked by Chinese people today. But I'm not sure whether it was correct information or not, so I think I also need to look for about it on consulate web site.

We also need to take care about demonstration on anti-Japanese on May 4th in Vancouver.

PARTY! PARTY! PARTY!

I was invited to Taiwanese party which is organized by YOURS. One of my friends, he is a hairdresser, was invited to that party from Taiwanese friend, and my friend invited me it. I also invited my friends from school and other, so there were about 10 Japanese, 2 Frenchman, 1 Italian.


We were really enjoyed dancing, drinking, talking until 2:00am!

I'll tell you about my school life today.

I always wake up at 7:30am and eat two or three, four slices of bread with milk for breakfast. Then I check my friend's blog which blog marathon's fellow keep everyday, and I also update my blog. Additionally, I have to finish my homework up so I do it until leaving home. I generally leave my home at 9:30am.

My normal bus route, actually it depends on the traffic conditions so I sometimes change my route not to be late school, is Davie bus(#6) to Granville St - UBC(#17) to UBC or Davie(#6) - 98 Bline(#98) to Broadway - 99 Bline(#99) to UBC. It takes about 30min if I take a first path, and the other hand about 40 or 45min if I chose a second path. It's enough time for me to take a nap before my class or to review last class for a short time.

When I arrive at UBC, I go to bagle shop in the SUB(Student Union Bilding) to buy my small meal between first morning class and second morning class. My favorite bagle is "focaccia". It's a bagle tasted "focaccia". I think they use, salt, olive oil, garlic, bacon, Italian parsley. I really love this taste and it's cheap! Only $0.85CAD! If I buy this in Japan, it costs about $1.20CAD, I think.

My class always starts from 10:20am. I have three classes in a day. My class schedule is below.
  - 10:20am to 12:00am for Business Reading class
  - 0:10pm to 1:50pm for Writing class
  - 2:00pm to 3:50pm for Lunch time
  - 3:50pm to 5:30pm for Business Speaking & Listening class

I'd like to describe about my class details but it must be long, so I'll tell you next time.

This is one of the photos which we play volleyball after lunch between classes. We often play badminton, frisbee, soccer, volleyball etc...

After my school, I go home but I don't have usual things to do, so what I do after school depends on that which friends I see at school or how much my homework is, how many friends wanna go out with.

But only one thing which I can not forget is to watchi this sunset. It heals me so much.

海南鶏飯。

※今日は少し酔っ払ってるので英語は勘弁して下さい。(涙)
20050427_01.jpg


僕のお気に入りの海南鶏飯は六本木ヒルズの隅にある「海南鶏飯(ハイナンチーファン)食堂」です。ここは友人のGeorgeに昨年(2004年)紹介してもらって依頼、意外に訪れているレストランです。味は確かです。日本にいる方は是非お試しあれ♪

The Grouse Mountain is very close to downtown. It takes about 30min by bus(20min by car). People who lives in Vancouver enjoy snowboarding and skiing in winter season.
Actually, the snowboarding and skiing season of the Grouse Mountain was over. April 24th was the last day of this season.

I said that I was going to describe "the Grouse Mountain" with today's blog yesterday, but I got a other topic about our dinner. So I changed my topic of today. "the Grouse Mountain" will be tomorrow.

Today's dinner was "PORK"!
I met x-roommate and her friend on the way to home by chance. I was thinking about today's dinner at that time, so I asked them they had had a dinner or not. Fortunately they didn't have anything and they were also thinking about it. It was nice timing, I thought, so we would have made a dinner together at my home!

Look! Do you know how huge this PORK Blocks are!
(2kg x 2 = 4kg!)

We prepared these things for supper. It seems like a Japanese BBQ, doesn't it?

It was my first visiting the naked beach in my life. The UBC has a naked beach close to the campus. I went there with my ELI friends after class because of a beautiful weather today.
There were lots of people and some of them didn't wear anythings, especialy old men like fifty or sixty years old men. And also some of women were topless like twenty or thirty or over ages.
I wanted to upload those photo, but I could do it because of naked beach.
So I just show you my friend's photo who I went there with.

I have started to keep blogs for a month from today. This is an event of Westcoast International Education, it's called "The Blog Marathon", by which I am taken care of these days.

What's The Blog Marathon? (Japanese only)
  URL: http://www.wie.jp/event/bloggers.html

Members of The Blog Marathon must keep blog every day. If we can continue it for a month, we get a prize! But if we can not, we should have punishment???

I think it's good practices for me to keep blogs in English. Although it gonna be tough way for me but I'll do my best!!!

今日(月曜日)からIntensive English Programが始まりました。まぁ、いわゆるESLのコースでこれから3ヶ月の間、Reading, Writing, Speaking/Listeningの3つの授業をそれぞれのレベルのクラスで受講することになります。

今日はテスト尽くしで、Writing、Listening、Reading、Speakingのレベルチェックがあって、少し疲れましたよ。内容としては、
 ・Writing 45min
 ・Listening 15min
 ・Reading 45min
 ・Speaking 45min?
で、特にWritingがきつかったかなぁ~、という感じです。
問題の出来の方ですが・・・、ListeningとReading、Speakingはまぁまぁ、Writingはちょっと駄目だったかなぁ、といったところです。

ここ最近英語の勉強らしい勉強はせずにVictoriaのフランス人の友人宅へ遊びに行ったり、イタリア人のルームメイトとUAEの友人と一緒にWhistlerに行ったりと、本当に遊んでばかりだったんですが、不思議と英語能力は上がっていたようで、Writing以外は意外にすんなりといった感じでした。やはり英語環境にいると違うようです。。。

耳は結構良くなってきているようで、つい二日前くらいからテレビCMと町で流れている歌の歌詞が聞き取れるようになってきました。
これがみんなが言っている、「あ、聞こえた」、「あ、今わかった」みたいな感じで、今まで聞いていてよくわからなかった部分が突然聞こえるようになってきたんですよ。まだ完全じゃないみたいなんですが、でも少し感動です♪

でも、書いたり話したりする方はもっと英語で文章を作るという訓練をする必要があるようです。ボキャブラリーもまだまだ少ないので、伝えたいことがダイレクトに言えず、知ってる言葉で近いニュアンスを出して、相手に拾ってもらってるといった感じになってしまってます。

ブログの更新も、英語で書き始めてからあまり芳しくないし・・・。
もっと努力が必要です、ハイ。(涙)

先程Summer timeに切替えました。初体験です!
こちらでは、4月の第一日曜日に移る時(土曜日から日曜日に変わる時)に時計の針を一時間早めるそうです。

ちゃんと目覚まし時計も直しておかないと・・・。
次のプログラムが始まって、いきなり遅刻ってことにも成りかねないので。カナダ人でもいそうだな。忘れてるヤツ。


ただ今のVancouver時間は2005/04/03 6:17am。

あぁ、一時間損してる気分。もう寝まーす。
