now little bit back to normal

After the Hurricane IRENE, here is back to normal. However still need to fix some places.

Well here is different thing. I bought some Fire King dishes when I came back from Japan... Just one or two, and I like that one so I bought it...

here is the picture
Fire King Azurite Fruit dish 


Fire King Torquiest Blue Cup and Saucer


These are what I bought and I don't think I can buy these again sometime later since hurricane was damaged a lot of places now, and they need to recover from that.

I am sure I will have enough time to wait for that anyway!

I hope everyone will have a great night and have a nice days!

Still some of places have damages

I went to several places today and I was surprised that how bad hurricane's damage was. I saw several big trees fell down, and these makes electricity shut down. Also it is really really bad around here, and university is closed for Monday, and it will announce Tuesday classes what's going on. I knew that what would happen after hurricane, but this is not what I was expected about it.

Here is some picture of after the storm


Glifton's Antiques








I am sad that hurricane gave here this city for damage a lot more than people expected, and it is hard to believe that trees and several stuff changes around here.

hopefully will get back some how soon!

Hurricane IRENE

Today was all day long hurricane day, and it was not too bad I thought first. However it was not really good. Around here in Greenville has a lot of damages and I took some picture and video from my house view. I was so surprised that we had this kind of hurricane this year.

I can not believe that happen after I came back to Greenville.

Hurricane IRENE

I think Hurricane IRENE is coming to Greenville, NC and Eastern NC. I hope everything will be going to be ok. I am not sure what's going on yet, but seems like it will be weaken every hour now... So I guess it should be ok.

Also, Greenville NC will have 5-6" of raining total until hurricane is gone... so I guess it's ok.

here is the Hurricane looks like now.
Hurricane IRENE
I am hearing that news said that IRENE is getting weaker than they expected now, but still Category 1 Hurricane go through near here.

Right now outside is hard raining than I though... but It should be ok!

I will update more and more tomorrow!

I left Japan on August 22nd at 8:40pm and arrived at here in Raleigh at 11:04am on August 23rd! ahaha it's not really far looks like from time but it is far from Japan.

I am sure I will have a great Fall 2011 and have a great time, but still I miss a lot of things!

やっとラリーに到着しました!現地時間で午前11時04分です。日本は今8月24日の午前0時4分頃かと思います。

8月22日の午後8時40分に熊本を発って8月23日の午前11時04分にラリーに到着したから見た目はそこまでかかってない感じですが、かなり長旅です。アハハ

秋学期は楽しく過ごせそうな予感がしますが、それでもいろいろな事を経験できない事もあるのか!と思っています。

I hope everyone has a great day and night!
みなさん良い一日と良い夜をお過ごし下さい。

Today is the leaving

Leaving Japan at night today on August 22nd.

My flight is leaving here in Kumamoto at 8:40pm, so I am kind of sad but I am ok. I just need to check all what I need to have. Since my passport has new VISA for next five years...! YAY!

Oh yeah, I have to have I-20 Form before I leave here and that needs to stay with me! If not I can not be enter the USA... I just check it before I leave here at my home!

Now, I am going to go back to USA but before that I will go to eat Sushi at one restaurant! Then I go back to USA.

I am sure this time, I will miss all happen here in Tanoura, Kumamoto, and so on! This year had a lot of great memories than previous years summer! So I am happy but sad same time.

First time, I thought I don't want to go back to my own life in the USA, but Now I need to change my mind! ahaha I still want to be stay in the USA for next few years! AND hopefully as long as I can!

Well here is my thought after I came back home....

Well, I hope I have safe trip!

Went to last late meal with my mother on August 21st!

I went to late meal with my mother tonight, and I had Chicken Italian Cheese with Rice and Salad set. It was good dinner meal for late night... since this would be last dinner time meal with my mother before I leave Japan. Then we tried to get some Kakigori! But it was small and I didn't expected for this one. I usually get some better meal with that Kakigori.... so I was surprised, and I told them this is so small and another place is better and bigger than this one, then they told me to no cost for this one. So I was not saying that I won't pay it, but need to change it before another person is coming to ask them that same question as me.

Well here is the picture of it.

Green tea and Sweet Beans (azuki)

Strawberry with Mango
 You can see this is small... I usually got twice bigger than this and pay same cost as this one. Well, I didn't eat it any. ahaha

Well maybe I will be ok to eat but I was not really want to eat since they told me no cost.

Oh yeah, I will try to post more different one if I have chance to take the pictures!
