marolog - a story of lives (in Denmark)

What maro sees, hears, smells, tastes, touches, and feels in his life will be told in his way in this blog. So today, what you'll see through his eyes?


This was the first and the last snowboarding at the Cypress Mountain. It took about 30 minutes to get there from North Vancouver. It was OK but I felt a little far from downtown.

There are three major places to enjoy sking and snowbording near Vancouver downtown. Cypress Mountain, Grouse Mountain, Mount Seymour. Vancouver is a great place for winter sports. The next olympics, it takes place in Vancouver in 2010, will be exciting and amazing, I guess.


We can enjoy the beautiful scenary of Vancouver in fall.
It's a different beauty but as much as in summer.

Hey! This is the "JAPA-DOG"! You don't know it?
I can't believe it! You should check it out and try it!!!
It's really tasty and you can feel the neat sense of taste of Japanese people...

*Japanese Only...



クラスメイトのCanadian達に聞いたところ、11月11日が「Veteran's Day」だから、みんなpoppyを付けているんだ、ということがわかりました。

「We must remember. If we do not, the sacrifice of those one hundred thousand Canadian lives will be meaningless. They died for us, for their homes and families and friends, for a collection of traditions they cherished and a future they believed in; they died for Canada. The meaning of their sacrifice rests with our collective national consciousness; our future is their monument.」
(from Veterans Affairs Canada)


世界平和記念日(Remembrance Day(イギリス)/Veteran's Day(アメリカ)/Armistice Day/Victory Day/World War I Memorial Day)

Today I'd like to introduce my school.

I've been taking Project Management Intensive course at UBC Continuing Study(Robson Square) since Oct 3rd. It's a kind of specialist course to learn how to manage a project and to make a career for next job. If I say this course more difficult, it's the course which is based on a PMI(Project Management Institute) Standard: it's called PMBOK.

Most of the people who is taking this course are Canadians, so I think it's a practical environment for learning English.

We can see red and yellow leaves in Downtown yet. Of course I love Japanese autumn, but I think Vancouver's red and yellow leaves are nice as well.

This is inside of the school.

Classmates with an instructor.

I gonna finish this course on Feb 9th, then go back to Japan as soon as possible. I can see the end of my Canadian life... Time flies...
