IMG_0117

She was just little now, she’s on her first day at the school. Time really flies so fast. I can’t believe it just 3 years ago i was pregnant with her.

It’s my first time to carry a baby in a different country and it looks like my first time also. My first son born 2008 then my daughter 2014, it’s 6years gap. My first time to labor without anesthesia, all natural birth. I really inspired the doctor here as they really into natural birth and people here are so brave as well to bear natural birth.

Looks how happy she was, she’s so excited to go school. The school ceremony started last April 11 and their first day school in the next day, from 9am ~ 11:30 for the 1st week. Then the rest of the week the schedule is M-T-TH-F from 9am ~ 2:30pm, while Wed only half-day 11:30am. At least in this school, I don’t worry what will have my daughter “bento” (pack lunch) the school will provide it.  That’s won’t stress me out everyday the “bento” preparation, because when my son in Kindergarten. In the evening, I have to think for his “bento” which everyday stress my brain of its.

At first we know that we have to wear formal together with my daugher and we bought the black formal dress. Then, it’s too late as my husband read the information regarding the Opening Ceremony program that our daughter should wear the school uniform. “Mottainai” (waste of money) as the Japanese says, anyway, we just have picture taking and the white dress, she supposedly to be a flower girl to the wedding in the Philippines what they did they send it to us via our friend who’s visiting us here in Japan.

The school ceremony is so wet, it’s raining the whole day. We can’t have picture taking inside the ground of the school under the Sakura trees. Where thinking to have a pictorial under the Sakura trees which we only know the mall nearby which nice background.

“Kangatte” (My feeling) to her I’m a bit anxious and I feel happy that I have seen my daughter growing I didn’t miss anything about her. First word she says, First step (walk), first solid food she eat as in everything. I’m so glad I made this way. I just miss her around me whenever I go from groceries, stores, malls, playground, etc. Now, I love to be full time mom. I’m so happy and proud to be a mom.

 

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a great day!

Vacation Bible School

We attended the Vacation Bible School in our Church. Actually, it was my son’s event, all mothers also have a place to wait for their kids and also some seminar to attend as well. From August 1 to 6, 2016 (9-3pm), which is everyday we have to commute from our house to the church. We walked 5mins from house to bus stop and bus stop to Kita Senri Station around 15mins, walk 2-3 mins going to the entrance of the Train then Kita Senri Station going to Suita Station that’s 15mins and walked going to the Church around 5-8mins. We will reach at the church at exact 9am or sometimes if we my little princess walked fast a bit early on 9am. Anyhow, just imagine the hit of the sun when we are walking the weather is always 33-36 degrees heat. That’s why when summer we don’t usually go out inside our house all the liquid inside our bodies will come out, sweating like waterfalls. 😦

The above pictures (3) we had a cooking lesson from Ms. Linda. What I like about this is the spam mold which I asked Japanese mother if we have here in Japan they said “it was their first time to see that spam mold onigirioh they said it only sold in U.S. I feel sad I want one for bento and my kids loves Spam so much. And also, for picnic food easy to do it.

Earthquakes 

Is a must to share this, last Friday (Jan.15, 2016) I attended in the school of my son on how to make and prepare when there is an earthquake. Especially if they are our in the school building and on the road. Last week Hokkaido, Japan experience the moved off the ground at 6.7 magnitudes.

TOKYO: A 6.7-magnitude earthquake struck off Japan’s Hokkaido on Thursday (Jan 14), according to the United States Geological Survey.

No tsunami warning was issued by authorities for the quake which struck 51km southeast of Shizunai.

The quake hit at 12.25pm (11.25am, Singapore time) off the southern coast of the island, at a location about 750km north of Tokyo, the Japan Meteorological Agency said. The quake was measured at a depth of 50km, it added.

No damage or injuries were immediately reported though heavy shaking was captured on camera footage shown on public broadcaster NHK. Japan sits at the junction of four tectonic plates and experiences around 20 per cent of the world’s most powerful earthquakes.

But rigid building codes and strict enforcement mean even powerful tremors frequently do little damage. On Tuesday, a strong 6.1 magnitude earthquake struck off Hokkaido.

A massive undersea quake that hit in March 2011 sent a tsunami barrelling into Japan’s northeast coast, killing more than 15,000 people and sending three reactors into meltdown at the Fukushima nuclear plant.

All parents watched the video below how the kids (students) prepare their self in case earthquake occur. 

Video click here (sorry in Japan)

The Japanese really care the safety of the kids as usual be alert in every calamity. They really have this time to make seriously pay attention to this event. This is very interesting, ’cause in the Philippines we had earthquake, typhoons, tsunami.. We don’t have any idea what to do and we end up panicking, right? Oh, this is the way I love Japan. Safe and very advanced (esp. Technology).
