Two fun events in summer in Japan

Two fun events in summer in Japan are festivals and fireworks. The summer festivals are called Natumaturi(夏祭り).

We go there wearing Yukata, which is Japanese traditional clothing like a light summer kimono. A lot of big rockets are set off on the banks of the stream, and we enjoy them. We also…

Natural Charisma

Having opened FB after a long time, I came across one of my teacher’s profile. The moment I saw her picture, I was filled with a sense of joy. This joyous feeling was really surprising for me because I had never imagined that a teacher’s profile/memory would make me so happy. A kind of happiness that we would experience when we meet a very special friend after a long time; a friend with whom we have spent a lot of time, with whom we have done lots of fun together and share a lot of memories…

I Don't

I don’t like when you scold me for not bathing for 10 days,

What if this makes me horrible than the demons of demon doomsdays,



I don’t like when your words put me in fear,

Is it not enough to clean the room once in a year?



I don’t like when you scold me for not listening to you,

Despite you know I am a moody child of you.



I don’t like when you anger over my arguments on old rituals and customs,

Do you know? I don’t want to follow these… Continue

Hidden Kids' Desires

While the English teacher was explaining the lesson, a piece of sheet was passing from one side to another.



"What's the matter?" the teacher thought. She immediately picked up the sheet and found some strange words

"Do You Love Sondos? "

At once the teacher asked them for an explanation so that one of the girls stood and said

"I'm feeling jealous because I think Marwa loves Sondos more"

It was a persuasive response that was given from a kid in an elementary school… Continue

If somebody ask you "Who are you?"

What answer you will give. You may started telling. My name is XYZ, I am working or Studying in ABC college or company etc

Just 'talk with them out"

We were all shocked when our beloved nephew (he was just one month behind his 16th year) diagnosed with an acutely aggressive brain tumor.  Doctors gave him only a few months to live.  I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.  I was totally numb for the sometimes. I was not really prepared for that, really not.  I remember it was one of the days when I was babysitting him in the hospital, he said to me, “mamoo…
