My New Disney Corner 新しいディズニーコーナー。

As you may know, a few months ago, my husband and I moved to a new apartment. The apartment we live in now is much bigger than the old one, ...

Disney Chocolates ディズニーのチョコ

On Tuesday, I helped my mum set up a new fish tank for her pet goldfish (I used to work in a pet shop, and since I love animals so much, I remember a lot of what I learned there). As a thank you, my mum bought me these Disney chocolates! 

I have had them once before. When I was on holidays with mum and my sister, I bought the Minnie Mouse tin when we stopped over at a lolly shop. They are quite yummy, though I think I am more excited about the tins than the chocolates : )

New Disney Fan Magazines 新しいディズニーファン雑誌

I was recently able to purchase the most recent issues of Disney Fan! I got the January issue, and the February issue.


Usually I purchase these online, at YesAsia, but with the Australian dollar as it has been, it has actually been cheaper to buy them at Kinokuniya as I see them. 

The January issue contains a vintage art calendar, but I probably won't use it. I already have my planner that I like to use (though I will need to import another one soon- look out for a post on my planners in the future).

I really enjoy reading these magazines. As my Japanese skill progresses, I find that I can read more and more, which is very exciting. And, since I love Disney so much, I truly want to be able to read them- it can be hard to stay motivated when you are studying another language.

Also, because Japan markets Disney towards young women, and not just children, these magazines are very interesting, and not too childish. If you ever get the chance, I think you should have a look at them!

Hong Kong Disneyland 10th Anniversary 香港ディズニーランド10周年

My friend Michelle is currently at Hong Kong Disneyland, enjoying their 10th anniversary. I would be lying if I said that I wasn't at least a little bit jealous.

She knows how much I love Disney, and so she has been sending me lots of really nice photos of park attractions, signs and of course merchandise. The following photos really stood out to me. This display exists for the 10th anniversary of the park, and it shows the characters in their special anniversary outfits. 

I thought I would share the photos with you (and with Michelle's permission of course), so that you could see some of the magic that my friend has experienced!



My Happy Video 私のハッピービデオ

Whenever I am feeling a little bit sad about something, there is one video on YouTube that I like to watch. It cheers me up to see so many people loving a place that I love, and seeing characters that always make me feel like a kid again. I would like to share that with you here, and I hope that you like it too!

Star Wars スターウォーズ

Yesterday Luke and I went to see the new Star Wars movie. We both enjoyed it a lot. I will be posting a review for it in the next few days- once I figure out exactly how to translate it into Japanese as well. The review will be spoiler free, so do not fret!

Have you seen the new Star Wars movie? Did you like it?

It's 2016! 2016年です!

Hi everyone! I am sorry that I haven't posted in a long time, but I have been very busy over the past month! Christmas and the New Year can be very socially demanding!

Anyway, it is officially 2016! I have many hopes for this year. I hope to pass my third year of Japanese. I hope to take my second trip to Japan in October, for my third wedding anniversary. I hope to enter the Japanese Language Speech Contest again. And, I hope to make new friends!

What do you hope for 2016?
