Tanabata..another matsuri


This time it's gonna be Tanabata... yesterday 07/07 is a day called Tanabata Matsuri. (matsuri=festival). But it is not declared as holiday and it is celebrated a month after that date which will fall on 08/07. Here it is written backward from Malaysia. year/month/day. At first i was a bit janggal gitu..lama2 dah jadi kekok plak nak tulis day/month/year.
What is this Tanabata thing..well there's a story, a legend..knew about this legend/myth from my nihonggo sensei, the one who gave me that doggy biscuits..bukan for doggy but the box ada doggy cartoon..hehe..she loves dog..asik2 citer pasal doggy dia tu..hu..watashino inu wa..dot dot dot.. ok back to the case. Nama pun citer dongeng..it's about the love of two stars..they met one night and love at first sight..and they cant be separated at all. Sampai tak peduli benda lain. And the girl's father got mad and separate them by milky way and allowed them to meet only once a year which is on July 7th every year...kalau ujan takleh la jumpa..kalau cuaca baik boleh la berdating..so she always pray and make a lot of wishes so that on that day she will meet her ture love in a very good weather. hehe..betul ker my ranslation ni..my sensei told the story in japs so i just translate sekadar yang faham jer la..after that it was celebrated every year and on that day people who have wishes will write it on a piece of paper and hang it at bamboo trees and there is also sort of decoration will be hang at shopping mall..and other places maybe the whole sendai city..ala2..bintang miss komet kut..hehe..dan masa ni la juga hanabi secara besar-besaran. hanabi=fireworks. I cant wai for this festival next month. i really want to experience it. Tapi takder la sampai gantung kertas kat bamboo tree kut. Nanti sort of ikut their believe plak..or maybe..just for fun..hehe..
On the day they put out fireworks..all the girls will go out the see the fireworks wearing yukata.. i'm not sure about guys..yukata is a kimono during summer..the material is a bit different. Every season has different kind of kimono. Waa..mcm seronok pakai yukata tuuu..erm..i'm eyeing on one..hehe..hopefully i will experience this tanabata matsuri and of course..i will share it with all of you..

Sebenarnya Tanabata juga berasal dari negara China. Tetapi orang Cina tidak begitu menyambut Hari Qixi (Tanabata dalam Bahasa Jepun, Kanji yang sama).

Kamu boleh Wikipedia Qi Xi dalam Bahasa Melayu kalau kamu ingin mengetahui selanjutnya.

ごめん、僕のマレー語はもう下手に成りました。
