Mariya’s birthday was October 15, but today, Saturday, I invited my parents to have a birthday party with them . I saw my parents at Kofu station at 1 PM and took them to our apartment. I quickly went to a Chinese restaurant, Manpuku Roh, to take out dinner. The taste was OK. Then all of us went out for Takeda Shrine. A cameraman was waiting for us to take pictures of us in a small park nearby. After taking photos, I took my parents back to Kofu station. My mother will come to visit us for helping us with moving out from the apartment after my visit to … Continue reading
Katya and Mariya went to a park to try a big slide. Katya told me Mariya liked it.
A birthday present for Mariya arrived one day later. It is a mini indoor gym. Katya constructed it while I was working. After I came home, Mariya and I played together. She climbed up and slid down very well.
Mariya is one year old today. Time flies! Katya dressed Mariya up with a dress my mother gave to Mariya and a head band from Natalia. Mariya does not like hats. It seems she was happy without the head band.
Katya had taken Mariya’s photos. I chose one of the files and clipped her face out for her passport. I made a JPG file out of it and took it to a photo shop around 4 PM. The shop owner received it and made two prints. I took them to the passport center with the documents I had prepared. They received the documents with no problem except they wanted to know Katya’s cell phone number. “We will call her later.” “I can help you. My wife’s Japanese is not perfect.” “It is OK. We will call her later.” Right after I left the counter, one of them called Katya, “Do … Continue reading
I normally wake up late on Sunday mornings, but today, before 7 AM as usual, because there was scheduled a clean-up around the apartments by the residents themselves; there are a lot of these occasions in Japan. The cleaning started at 8 AM. We cleaned the ditch and took off weeds. We made up piles of bags filled with weeds. I took a shower again. For lunch, we walked down Takeda Street. We arrived at a Nepali restaurant, “New Mahal“, where Katya took a ladies’ set and I a lunch buffet. Mariya was a good girl as usual. I wish that the buffet curries were more spicy. After coming … Continue reading
In the late afternoon, Katya and I took Mariya to see an otorhinolaryngologist, because Mariya has a cold and has a stuffy nose. Mariya was treated at the hospital and her nose was cleared. The doctor told us how to clear the nose, and we bought a tube for it. In the afternoon, I cleaned Mariya’s nose. It seems that she is feeling better.
Mariya is getting good at crawling. Katya showed her on skype to her parents using iPhone. She came and bit the string attached to my camera. She likes strings and cords these days.
I had two classes to teach today. I like the classes and students seem to understand me. I then started preparing a report of my project in the academic year 2012 (meaning from April 2012 to March 2013). It was not too difficult because I just copy and paste and adjust lines and change fonts and copy and paste and adjust pictures, and so on. I came back to the apartment at 7 PM for dinner and Mariya’s bathing. Then I took a nap. I came back to my office and am copying and pasting and adjusting.
In the morning, I took the Chinese roast pork out from the pot. They seemed to be well done. For Mariya’s passport, I went to the city hall in the evening. The building was fully renewed this year. I received Mariya’s resident proof. After the city hall, I went to the prefecture passport center. The office was closing, so I only received the application forms. I went to a DIY shop, D2, to change the battery of my watch, but they only accept watches they have sold. So I drove to “Yamako Department Store” in front of Kofu Station. On the first floor, there was a small watch shop, … Continue reading
