For This Fall…

The shopaholic in me bought some autumn gears—it’s been awhile to really buy something for myself. When I go out for shopping instead of buying things for myself, I tend to buy stuffs mostly for my kids and friends.—Parka, pullover and cardigan from United Colors of Benetton—

Jelly Beans ( shoe brand in Japan ) brown long boots.

Glad to shopped for myself! ^_^ Are you ready for this fall?

Music Monday—Everything

Being a fan of MISIA, I can’t let a day pass without listening to her songs most especially Everything which is the theme song of Japanese evening drama Yamato Nadeshiko ( Perfect Woman )—I was instantly drawn into the drama! Nevertheless, MISIA’s powerful voice is absolutely incredible!

English and Romaji ( translation by Megchan )

Everything by MISIA

I met you by chance in the midst of passing time
It’s amazing, isn’t it? That such a miracle should be so close by

Still missing you, the time passes and I can’t see you
Slipping through the door, I remember once again
You laughing with that person

My beloved, please don’t make me sad
There are nights when I cry myself to sleep
Don’t look at the past, just look at me

You’re everything, you’re everything
I’m stronger than you think
I don’t want any kind lies
All I want is you

How long a time can be called forever?
I want to go with you far, far into the future
I want to peek at those days with you

My beloved, please hold me
Like you always do, in the midst of time’s tenderness
Hold my hand, look just at the present

You’re everything, you’re everything
Even if I’m apart from you
If we could see each other, I’d surely forgive you
Any night

You’re everything, you’re everything
I’m strong enough to dream of you
Now let’s change the power to love
Into courgage

You’re everything, you’re everything
Even if I’m apart from you
If we could see each other, it would all disappear
Even the pain in my heart

You’re everything, you’re everything
I’m stronger than you think
I don’t want any kind lies
All I want is you
You’re everything…

Romaji

Surechigau toki no naka de anata to meguriaeta
Fushigi ne negatta kiseki ga konna ni mo soba ni aru nante

Aitai omoi no mama aenai jikan dake ga
Sugiteku tobira surinukete mata omoidashite
Ano hito to waraiau anata wo

Itoshiki hito yo kanashimasenaide
Nakitsukarete nemuru yoru mo aru kara
Kako wo minaide mitsumete watashi dake

You’re everything, you’re everything
Anata ga omou yori tsuyoku
Yasashii uso nara iranai
Hoshii no wa anata

Dore kurai no jikan wo eien to yoberu darou
Hateshinaku tooi mirai nara anata to ikitai
Anata to nozoite mitai sono hi wo

Itoshiki hito yo dakishimete
Itsumo no you ni yasashii toki no naka de
Kono te nigitte mitsumete ima dake wo

You’re everything, you’re everything
Anata to hanareteru basho demo
Aeba kitto yurushite shimau
Donna yoru demo

You’re everything, you’re everything
Anata no yume miru hodo tsuyoku
Ai seru chikara wo yuuki ni
Ima kaete ikou

You’re everything, you’re everything
Anata to hanareteru basho demo
Aeba itsumo kiete satte yuku
Mune no itami mo

You’re everything, you’re everything
Anata ga omou yori tsuyoku
Yasashii uso nara iranai
Hoshii no wa anata
You’re everything…

Girl’s Talk–Black And Me

Black is timeless and stylish and it makes my apprearance a lil bit slimmer ( lol ) and I guess I’ m more a winter color person. I love to mix-and-match my black outfits with bright colors or prints as an accent and I’ m into black-purple/lavender and black-pink combination recently. Black pairs well with many other colors, too ^_^
My new baby wanted a sister and I’ m enjoying my camera more although I dunno yet some of the tricks, techniques and hope to improve my skills in photography. I’m still learning and I enjoy when doing on-location and trips photography of my kids and family.

Girl’s Talk—Green And Me

I dunno if this green turtle neck gift from hubby suits me but it’s the only green that I have in my closet. I love greens in my surroundings though–our mother nature.  I can’t imagine a world without green in it.

— I soo love this face powder from Agnes B ( it doesn’t look like you’re wearing a powder and yet radiant ) and I find the ‘ b. green ‘ stamp on it so cute! ^_^ It comes with a color pearl balls then you gonna mix it with a brush or a puff unto your face.—

It was their decision to disband although they are at their peak of success. Their band was simply too good! They are missed and loved…

English

I’ll never forget being with you at the end of summer
With our dreams of the future and big hopes
I believe that ten years later in August, we’ll meet again
Such great memories…

We met in a sudden instant at the intersection on the way home
And you called out to me, and said “Let’s go home together”
I was so bashful that I hid my face with my bag
But I was so very, very happy

Ah, the fireworks burst in the night sky so nicely, it kinda hurts
Ah, the wind flows by with the time

We had so many happy, fun adventures
Together in our secret base

I’ll never forget being with you at the end of summer
With our dreams of the future and big hopes
I believe that ten years later in August, we’ll meet again
I knew that, until the end, you were shouting
“Thank you” from the bottom of your heart
Farewell while smiling and holding back tears is so hard
Such grand memories…

Ah, summer break will end soon
Ah, I hope the sun and moon make friends

We had so many sad, lonely arguments
Together in our secret base

I knew that, until the end, you were shouting
“Thank you” from the bottom of your heart
Farewell while smiling and holding back tears is so hard
Such great memories…

Nothing can be done about your sudden transfer
I’ll write, and call
So don’t forget me
Forever, in our secret base

With you at the end of summer, we talked on and on
After the setting sun, we gazed at the stars
I’ll never forget the tear that flowed down your cheeks
I won’t forget
The way you waved to me until the very end
So let’s stay this way in our dreams, forever…

I’ll never forget being with you at the end of summer
With our dreams of the future and big hopes
I believe that ten years later in August, we’ll meet again
I knew that, until the end, you were shouting
“Thank you” from the bottom of your heart
Farewell while smiling and holding back tears is so hard
Such grand memories…
Such grand memories…

Music Monday—Makenaide ( Don’t Give Up )

When I’m feeling stressed and feeling down spirited, the lyrics of this song from Zard makes my heart uplifting and lively. Sakai Izumi, the lead vocalist of the band Zard died 3 years ago..Wherever you are, I want to thank you for all your songs that touched my heart. I’ll never forget you!!

Makenaide by ZARD ( English translation )

You must remember the excitement you feel
When your eyes suddenly meet
Keep shining like you did
In the pastel-coloured season
When I fell in love with you

Don’t give up, keep running
A little further, to the end
No matter how far apart we are
Our hearts are together
Chase your distant dreams

No matter what happens, I keep my face calm
And joke that it’ll all work out in the end
Dance with me tonight
And don’t forget that I still love
The way you are

Don’t give up, see
Your goals are getting closer
No matter how far apart we are
Our hearts are together
Feel my eyes on you

Don’t give up, keep running
A little further, to the end
No matter how far apart we are
Our hearts are together
Chase your distant dreams

Don’t give up, see
Your goals are getting closer
No matter how far apart we are
Our hearts are together
Feel my eyes on you

Ruby Tuesday

A mail box in Japan—I love giving letters and cards to friends all over the country and hoping to continue to get in touch with them. Of course the new technology is giving us the easy way to communicate but receiving a letter fresh from the mail box  makes me the happiest woman to be remembered that way! Old fashioned? Maybe yes ^_^
