Hello, it's been a while!
It was in the airplane on the way back to Fukuoka, Japan.


My keyboard 
110A0737_1024bk-10.jpg

It's Japanese keyboard.
I liked English keyboard before but only 1 key stroke got me changed.

English keyboard takes 2 keys to set Japanese input mode.
Japanese keyboard only takes 1 key to set it.
Off course I may be able to assign function to the specific key but Japanese keyboard has 1 additional key to set Japanese input mode.


I still like English keyboard from the design point of view.
It is simpler and easy to look.


Big or tall?

I read Japanese news site,
http://topics.jp.msn.com/wadai/searchina/article.aspx?articleid=492340
and interested about "nose".

This is about culture shock about Japan from the blog post of Ricky
- Japanese men compliment women by saying “You have a small face” or “You have a big nose”. The first time somebody said to me I had a big nose I actually thought he was trying to offend me. As you may know, many Americans (women and even some men) get a “nose job” (plastic surgery to get a smaller nose). Opposite cultures!

I enjoyed reading her post.

In above Japanese news site, they translated that American had complex about taller nose and some even wanted to have plastic surgery for lower nose.


When Japanese compliment about nose, we say "HANA GA TAKAI DESUNE".
This means you have a tall or prominet nose compare to we Asian tend to have rather button shaped nose.
I think when we use "HANA GA TAKAI", it does not mean "big nose".

To me, HANA GA TAKAI and BIG NOSE do not seem to fit well.
So what is the best way to compliment?
Tall nose,
long nose,
prominent nose,
beautiful nose or
better not to use nose to compliment?

By the way, I personally like Scarlett Johansson's nose.

PL filter was used.


Cold and rainy day 
Today was cold and rainy day.

I like rainy day sometime as it will not be dusty., as long as it is not heavy squall.
I also like walking narrow alley around dusk.

This alley still keeps Christmas lighting.
They will probably keep this until Chinese new year.

It is not like rainy season in Japan.
It it much drier than Japanes one.
Perhaps raining hours per day is much less than Japanese one.


Happy New Year!

FC2 Blog English version started 
FC2 announced Englidh version of FC2 BLog started

So I crested this site.

All interface is English. So when you post comments then English message should be appeared.

Although, all the user made plugins are not available yet, I can copy to free plugin are then I can use them.

Some of the FC2 service are linked Japanese page.
I hope FC2 gradually will shft to link English page.


Because FC2 is based in USA? It must be easy to add English interface.
I guess there aremany Asian user in FC2 !
