hai chizu!


2006.09.24 *Motel, Japan

there is no front desk. you walk in, lights and music turn on, someone calls the room and tells you to put your money into the vacuum tube. that's it.

2006.09.10 *My friends' wedding.

drinking sake. three times each.

i danced at the reception. my friends Nadine and Megumi played "Sakura, Sakura" on the shamisen, and i danced. i was so nervous my legs were shaking. i was happy to have the chance to wear the kimono. it's actually mine, my boyfriend's mother bought it for me. an amazing gift!
