Well, when the Sakura bloomed, it’s hanami-timep_sakura.gif
(Hanami = admire the Sakura, Sakura-viewing party, etc

I went for a few places for this hanami event with family and different friends.

First, on 28 March 2014, I went to Mitsuike Koen, a big park which that has 3 lakes inside located in Kanagawa prefecture with one of my mama-friend (friend with babies).

When I first arrived here, there were still no sakura blooming to be seen..face3_kao18.gif
I knew it was a bit too early but never thought that it would be like so.. so not even one to be seen from the entrance..face3_kao18.gifh_sweat02.gif

Too bad, but we enjoyed the park very much anyway even without the blossoms face3_kao20.gifh_shine.gif

Spring in Japan = Sakura
★2013/04/15 22:58

Oh yes! Spring in Japan = Sakura season!

Everywhere you go, you’d see Sakura p_sakura.gifp_sakura.gifp_sakura.gif

Whitish, pinkish trees all along the street, or just one in the middle of the greens symbolizing “I am the Angel” p_clover3.gifp_clover3.gifp_sakura.gifp_clover3.gifp_clover3.gif

or a garden which is not so green but pink!h_kira02.gifp_cherryblossom.gifh_kira02.gif
Just like the one we went face_self-conscious_smile.gif The Shinjuku-gyoen (新宿御苑)     p_cherryblossom.gifh_kira02.gifp_cherryblossom.gifh_kira02.gifp_cherryblossom.gifh_kira02.gifp_cherryblossom.gifh_kira02.gifp_cherryblossom.gifh_kira02.gifp_cherryblossom.gifh_kira02.gifp_cherryblossom.gifh_kira02.gifp_cherryblossom.gifh_kira02.gifp_cherryblossom.gifh_kira02.gifp_cherryblossom.gifh_kira02.gifp_cherryblossom.gifh_kira02.gifp_cherryblossom.gifh_kira02.gifp_cherryblossom.gifh_kira02.gifp_cherryblossom.gifh_kira02.gifp_cherryblossom.gifh_kira02.gifp_cherryblossom.gifh_kira02.gif

Imagine white pinkish tree in a garden! Doesn’t it makes you feel like a wonderland some may dream of? face_self-conscious_smile.gif

Pink sakuraThere are various types of Sakura. The very common one, the white pinkish sakura that you always see is called Someiyoshino (染井吉野). The roof of sakura in the 1st and 2nd pic is Someiyoshino and this type is always grown along at the side of a street or river shining all over face_shy.gifh_heart08.gif 

While the above sakura is all PINK!, I think this is Yokohamahizakura (横浜緋桜).
Nice staying alone in the middle type p_yotuba.gifp_yotuba.gifp_yotuba.gifp_yotuba.gifp_yotuba.gifp_sakura.gifp_yotuba.gifp_yotuba.gifp_yotuba.gifp_yotuba.gifp_yotuba.gif.

Little-big-boss happyHe was happy after all h_note.gif Slept half of the trip waking up fresh again to enjoy whatever that is happening. 

Whereas for us, we forgot to bring our baby carrier and we haven’t got a stroller yet..which ended up that we have to carry him barely the whole trip face3_kao17.gif *sore hand*
Anyway, this is when we decided to get a stroller at last, yay! face2_happy02.gif

We reached here early in the morning, when the place was still very quite tranquil and peaceful, breezy and calming p_hana-ani03.gif

At noon..


Crowded with people in Shinjuku-gyoenThis is the behind-the-scene of every beautiful sakura picture you see that your friend might have been uploaded on Facebook, etc these days. haha face2_smile.gif

And by noon, we went home face2_wink.gifh_shine.gif

Ooh, I’ve got something to continue which is totally has nothing to do with the sakura’s story above!

I found something very funny and ridiculous that I wanted to write it down here.
The latest Japanese language trend!!

This trend started this year and it’s a HIT on the internet in Japan.

They are words indicating when you are angry. The angrier you are, the funnier it goes..face3_kao20.gif

Angry L1 – Oko (came from the word “okoru (怒る)” which means angry
Angry L2 – Geki (very) Oko (angry)
Angry L3 – Geki (very) Oko (angry) Punpun (steam up) Maru
Angry L4 – Muka (frustrated) Chakka (set fire) Faiyaa (fire)
Angry L5 – Kamu Chakka (set fire) Inferunooooou (inferno)
Angry L6 – Geki (very) Oko (angry) Stikku (stick) Fainariariti (final reality) Punpun (steam up) Doriimu (dream)

And this is how you use them,

Oko na no?” (Are you angry?)
“My bicycle got stolen, Geki Oko Punpun Maru ٩(๑•ૅہ•๑)!!”

and so on..

Cute? face3_kao20.gif 





夫から最初に聞かされたんだけど、やっぱりくるってる~!と思った face3_kao17.gif

しかもたまに使われてる。。face3_kao17.gif 感染される~!!!!face_shout.gif
