Greetings from Hanoi, Vietnam. [Jan. 6th, 2014|03:30 pm]
hit_by_a_storm
And now I'm back in Hanoi after spending 4 weeks in Hong Kong. What I love most about Hanoi is of course, the food. On the night I arrived in Hanoi, I had the Pho Bo and for Sunday brunch, I had the bánh cuốn nhân chả rán (steamed spring rolls with pork).

This afternoon, the colleague and I had Bun Cha. It was delicious!! And it's cheaper than the Pho and the spring roll at VND33,00 while the Pho and the spring rolls cost VND50,000 and VND40,000 respectively.

A1

This morning we went to the Citygate Outlet Mall in Tung Chung. I didn't buy anything from there but I bought a pair of jeans from Mango and a dress from H&M when we went to Olympian City Mall. The weather was not as chilly, only 14 degrees Celsius instead of 11-12 degrees Celsius earlier in the week.

Trying to read smoothly in Hiragana. [Sep. 29th, 2013|08:46 pm]

[Tags|, , ]

In my goal to be able to read smoothly in Hiragana and Katakana, I've decided to look for any Japanese news or stories online and convert the text in Hiragana and Katakana (I can't read Kanji, obviously).

The site I used to translate kanji to Hiragana is this ---> http://nihongo.j-talk.com. A useful website I found is ---> http://www3.nhk.or.jp/news/index.html. This site has furigana for the kanji so I don't have to have its contents translated into Hiragana.

So far, this is only day 3 of my attempting to read smoothly in Hiragana. Starting Monday, I would like to start with Katakana. Unlike Hiragana, I always find it hard to memorize and read Katakana. :( Hopefully, I will be able to remember it this time around.

Below is a text of which I have already translated to Hiragana using the site I mentioned above. The story is title "Akatarou" ( かたろ う).

"
1. たいへん ものぐさ   おじいさん おばあさん まし

2. ほんとうに   ものぐさ   なに する めんどうくさく なん にち   いえ なか じっと いる だけ だっ です ある   ふたり なに なし   からだ こすっ ところ   からだ から あか ぽろぽろ おち まし

3. おじいさん おばあさん   なんだか   それ おもしろく   からだ あちこち こすっ まえ もの いっしょ ぎゅっと まるめ また   りこ すっ あか だし   さっき まるめ もの さらに くっつけ     やっ たら しまいに   いち かたまり なっ ので ちょっと いたずら しん おこし おじいさん それ   つば まぜ ねり ちいさな ひと かたち まし

4. できあがっ ちいさな にんぎょう いる うち なんとなく   それ かわいく なっ おじいさん おばあさん それ とっ おい から いっ   なに なる ない もの でし だからといって   そのまま すてる   かわいそう どう もの おもい ながら うえ みる ほこり だらけ かみだな つき まし ので あか つくっ ちいさな にんぎょう   とりあえず   かみだな において とくに なに おがむ なく   ぱんぱんと   うち まし

"

The text is actually longer, but I am taking it slowly so that my brain would have time to process and to not overwhelm it. LOL.

Anyways, that's how my Sunday is (waking up at 2pm, lounging around until 5pm, etc). I hope the coming week would be a good and productive one! :)

Cheers!
