Hippo's Party...


Don't try to imagine that my love and i are taking pictures with hippo or anything that concerns with hippotamus...hehe. Well as i mentioned before my love and i have a family here, Eriko-san belong in Hippo group and that makes us automatically a Hippo member too, i dont exactly know the origin of this name, there were several groups, i just know Mori and Hippo. We were invited to an annual party held by all members in Hippo group. It was in early December. I didn't manage to update it earlier busy with Kagoshima stuff and came back here excited posting about our recent trip. As i remembered that day it was raining heavily, at first it's kind of a hard decision to make, since we seldom meet Eriko-san maybe this party would be a great idea. She came and pick us up at home... as promised, she was there exactly at 5.45 pm, and we are glad that we were on time at the lobby. Dropped by to her house to pick up her twin daughters (very sweet, yet cant speak english and it is quite difficult to get to know them better.."love..bila nihonggo nak pera-pera ni huhu".

We arrived at a big building..dulu masa zaman2 naik bas, selalu wonder, bangunan apa ni? Because sometimes macam ada event and there were a lot of people, full of light and decoration. Tak sangka hari ni sampai jugak at this building, since it's not a grand ballroom or dinner tak ada la all those decoration tu and our event at basement. Turun tangga siap ada 1 big hall, sampai je kena register and write our name and paste it on our shirt. Meriah jugak..ramai betul orang. We didn't expect that there would be activities, there were corners like, the kids selling some of their old toys and the money will go to the charity, Japanese tea corner, kanji corner, traditional game corner and also international dress corner. I was looking forward to wear kimono tapi tak sempat sebab ada 1 je somebody else got it.

after registration, with Eriko-san's daugther, Arisa-san and Chirio-san, Arisa looks like her mother...(ever since i came here peace sign is a must (automatically did it) when taking pictures..)
with Eriko-san, alamak dia terpejam mata plak, but still kawaiii...
after introduction we were asked to make a big circle...the first song they played was rasa sayang..terkejut tak?? siap dengan action lagi masa nyanyi tu..most of them can speak basic malay sentences like..apa khabar? nama saya.... i'm so impressive..lepas tu nyanyi on the first day of christmas my true love gave to me...and then finally we have to mimic an eglish conversation. Lepas tu its makan2 time.
ada makanan khas..halal corner..yeay..sangat prihatin...nampak tak tudung merah tu, that lady is mrs majumder pemilik kedai makanan halal, we always buy our halal meats etc at their shop, kaya wooo...
vyummy foods...spaghetti, rice, chips..onagaka ippai ne..
merah kan pipi this boy..pastu makan tak hengat..penuh mulut..he just stayed at halal corner food and didnt even go to other tables..sedap agaknya makanan kat meja ni
haa..this boy..gengster Hippo...haha...apa2 hal dia panggil his mum, even for benda2 kecik, not just ordinary panggilan but he called OKAASAN!!!! (mother) sangat kuat sampai satu hall boleh dengar, even though his mother was just beside him he needs all the attention, kalau mak dia lambat sket respond to him it will be louder...haha..sangat kelakar, my love and i always lough each time he called his mother, senang mesti mak dia cam sangat suara dia and dont even have to worried kalau terlepas pandang kat shopping mall.. :P
lepas makan tatau nak buat apa, we just wandered around, pergi tempat jual2 barang tu jumpa some nice cutlery, very new still in a box and wrapped..ada org dapt free gift, doenst wanna use it and just sell it for 100 yen, my love just have 1-man, and i forgot to bring my coins, hu melepas... and then we went to kanji corner, alang2 tak ada orang, they saw out name written in katakana..and translated it to kanji,they choosed a very nice meaning kanji but we forgot whats the meaning..huu
us with our kanji name, that girl write my love's name cantik kan, the sound is still the same but heir words are sukukata instead of alphabet, so my name become Ha-Ni-Su, and love's name Te-Ru-Mimi, so both of our name has 3 kanji...yahuu nanti nak frame cantik2..kenangan tuuu.. my name associate with wings and success..while love's name associate with sort of gifted and owns something good...the first kanji for my love's name almost similar to kanji for car (jidosha/kuruma) no wonder he just loves cars so much, i guess that tells it..hehe..
and then we went to traditional game corner, but i forgot the name of that thing, Eriko-san baru je nak ajar my love, but love's just had the skill..wah kellas gitu..he just tried it for the first time and terus jyozu (mahir) look at that guy wearing maroon shirt..he was amazed and said jyozu to my love even he doesnt have the skill like my love have it, and my love became the center of attention for a while siap orang ambil gambar lagi, of course they were surprised to see a gaijin which can play their traditional game dengan jayanya..bravo love!
the next one is green tea corner, traditionally made with japanese style, that girl was from china, her host family did this corner and she were asked to be tea maker..wahh seronok, boleh pakai kimono plak tu..she's sooo lucky, We've been eyeing to try it, but it wasnt free..we have to pay 200 yen, takde duit kecik huhu..so tengok je yang mampu... japanese is known by their way of making and serve the tea..sangat protokol dan skima, tapi tu yang betul2 klasik laa..pernah tengok kat tv dulu when i was small..suddenly Eriko-san ajak minum sama2..biar betul dia nak belanja..my love and i apa lagi cepat2 duduk kat kerusi tu..
traditional green tea with japanese sweet, it is always served with traditional sweets, this is is a kind of mochi with read beans filling and tasty sakura leaf..waa sangat sedap, my love likes it too..siap nak tambah lagi tapi tak boleh..memang dia bagi 1 je..nanti kite cr kat kedai yer love.. time winter mcm ni ada filling strawberry..sedebuk sebiji strawberry akan diletak dlm tu hehe.. that is some benefit kalau pergi negara2 asia, the cuisine ada yang similar, and it wont make us misses those traditional kuih in malaysia...terubat dengan kuih2 kat sini...
arigatou ne Eriko-san...
