Sometimes I think naming the posts appropriately is the hardest thing to do in blogging -.- Me being me, I’ll just anyhow name it!
heehee a more photolog post this time!
First things first!!
I FINALLY BOUGHT BYAKUYAKO／白夜行！！！！
I think no one remembers, but I may have said it in the blog before that my goal in learning Japanese is to be able to read the original novel!!! Backtrack. Byakuyako is one of my favorite all time Japanese dramas. I got to know about it first by watching the Korean movie White Night (based on the same novel). I loved it but when I watched the Japanese drama, I was mind blown. Went on to read the entire novel in Chinese (translated version), swearing one day I’ll read it in its original language.
So tada. Bought it! I’ve been struggling with myself whether to buy it or not for a year already (yeah I’m lame like this). Finally decided to heck reason and bought it!!! It’s not that hard to read (so far). Finished a few pages without a dictionary on the train ride home. Kinda understand 90% of it, although not the kanji readings. Did a intensive reading again at night and finished 2 pages. Intensive reading as in really checking out each and every kanji that I don’t know how to pronounce and all the other words etc. (making sure that I understand 99% of everything)
99% because I’m so lazy I ignored readings for things like 西布施警察署. In case you wondered, I typed that in Chinese lol.
hehe I always believe that nothing is too difficult for me in Korean and hence trying to apply the same reasoning to Japanese. Everyone can tell me that it’s above my level, but too bad. I’m challenging myself and going for it. I love my steep learning curves. heh it’s readable so far anyway.
Okay! Picture time.
This is ice kachang, sorta the Singapore version of Patbingsu? hahahaha. This one was damn nice though. I love my ice shavings fine, hate eating bits of hard ice. -_-
Also. Tim Sum time the other day!! 😀 😀 Egg tarts. Not my favorite dim sum menu, but not too bad once in a while.
Yummy. I love anything with prawns in them.
My all time favorite dim sum menu!!! I can eat baskets of this.
Lotus leaf glutinous rice (:

haha of course I’ll only sit there on a empty weekend breezy afternoon. Can’t imagine sitting there under the hot sun on a weekday lunch hour – with all the office people bustling around :/
