Funny exercise failures.

Haircut

Because of the state of emergency I hadn’t gotten my hair cut for 3 months. 😁

Well every time I go to the barbershop the barber is different so what do I do to get a somewhat similar haircut…? 
Answer: I take out a photo of David Beckham and say, “Make me look like this, please.” After the barber stops laughing and tells me it’s impossible I show him a photo from the last time I got a haircut and show him. “Alright, this will do.”
¥1,100 later, here I am.

Funny things happen when this man works from home.

Has anything like this happened to you during an online meeting?

Toshiko Okanoue Exhibition at the Teien Museum

Toshiko Okanoue Exhibition at Teien

My sister, my brother in law and I went to an exhibition in Tokyo. It was an exhibition at the Teien Art museum in Tokyo. We saw Toshiko Okanoue’s artwork. She makes collage artworks that are like eerie dreams. A lot of her artwork have women in them, but their heads are often replaced with an inanimate object. Her artwork really went well with the art deco interior of the museum.

VOCABULARY:

Eerie

Inanimate

went well

Online

Online Drinks With Friends

One of the silver linings of this awful situation is that it has given me a different way to drink and catch up with friends from all over the world.

 In Japan, the US, Australia, and even Abu Dhabi, we’re all trying to do our part by staying at home. Luckily because of online meeting companies (like Zoom 😉), we’ve already had three or four nomikai nights online!
Here’s a picture from one of them
(Some of you Jabble students will recognize someone from Jabble’s past!)

If you have to stay in, there’s nothing more fun than playing with some model trains. Honestly, who doesn’t love trains?

Activities for kids at home

Activities for kids at home #4

Paper hand and foot game

You have to draw (trace) or print ,hand and feet on paper. around 15 -20 hand pictures and 20 feet pictures.
It depends on children’s age and how big your place is.
Place 3 drawings down on the floor. Taping then down is probably best.
The children start in front- you could make a starting line.
The children start by copying what the pictures show.
Example 🖐👞👞 is left hand down and both feet down
✋✋👞 is both hands down and one foot
The children have to race though by jumping to the next set of drawings without making any mistake or falling!
Great for co ordination and good fun!

Baking

How do you spend your quarantine ?

One of the things I’ve been enjoying during this quarantine is cooking. I wouldn’t say I hadn’t cooked before, but it was just easy to buy something from the deli at the supermarket or eat out on working days.
Recently, on top of cooking regular meals, I started baking!! I’m usually not so strict about my diet, but last week I baked some cake with rice flour, which doesn’t have gluten. When it comes to ingredients, I like to use healthy alternatives!!
