Sushi sushi

Sushi is a very delicious traditional dish in Japan. There are a lot of sushi restaurants in Vietnam and I had tried eating sushi before coming to Japan. In my family, my sister and I really love sushi but my parents don’t because they can’t eat sashimi. When I first came to Japan, the very first sushi restaurant I went to was Genki Sushi. It’s a 100 yen sushi restaurant and in my opinion, it is extremely delicious. i also have a close friend who very likes sushi. We promised to each other that we will go to this place and have a sushi dinner at least once a month. And I hope that I can find a lot of nice restaurants to try different kinds of Japanese dishes when I’m studying here.

On a rainy day.

There are many people I know that hate rain, but not like them, I don’t, and I really love rain. It was the very first Sunday of March when raindrops were falling down from the sky, my friend and I decided to go to a Starbucks near our place. It’s weird that I chose to go out on a rainy day instead of staying at home, but there’s something I have to say: Walking under the rain, to me, is very relaxing. With the rain, I can find peace in my soul. With the rain, I can finally stop worrying about my life for a while, just to enjoy that moment. With the rain, my sadness can be partly washed away. And most importantly, the cold of the rain together with the taste of a cup of Green Tea Latte was the best combination I could ask for in the rainy day.

The one with my favourite TV show

It’s my hobby to watch movies or shows whenever I have some spare time. Recently, my friend recommended me a show, “Friends” and it turns out to be a very great show. This show is about a group of friends - Monica, Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe. They shared almost every moments of their life together. There are three main places that are used as a background in this show: Monica’s apartment, Joey and Chandler’s apartment and a coffee shop named Central Perk. I love this TV show because it not only makes you laugh, makes you relax after hours of hardworking but it also makes you to have a thought about things around you, your relationships, your life. This show actually teaches me a lot.

Da Lat - The city of love in Vietnam

I was born and raised in Ho Chi Minh City, one of the three largest cities in Vietnam, but I have a huge love for Da Lat, a small beautiful city in the highland of Vietnam. Ever since I was born, I have been to Da Lat for more than twenty times, maybe once or twice a year. And I have no ideas why I fell in love with this place. Maybe it is because I had so many fun memories here, with my family, with my friends. Maybe it is because this city is filled with so many nice people. Maybe it is because the scenery here is breath-taking. Maybe it is because the food is so delicious. Or maybe I am just simply in love with this place for no reasons. Every time my family or my friends ask me where we should go on vacation, Da Lat is always my first suggestion. If you have a chance to travel to Vietnam, don’t forget this spot, it won’t make you disappointed.

Homesick

I’ve been in Japan for more t than half a year but I still usually feel homesick. When I was in Vietnam with my family and friends, I had nothing to worry about. Being with my family, my mom and dad would cook me whatever I want to eat. Being with my friends in Vietnam, I could go wherever I want to go with them. I will not be bored, I will not be sad and most importantly, I don’t have to feel homesick anymore. Studying and living in Japan is a very great opportunity for me to pursue my dream job, but I really miss the traffic jam in Saigon, I miss the taste of a big bowl of “Pho”, and I miss the good smell of my mom’s food whenever I came home from school. This feeling is not easy at all and I really wish I can be with my family right now.

A day to remember

It was the last Saturday of February 2019. I went back to my high school, joined with my friends in a club activity. It’s been such a long time that I finally met my dear friends and have so much fun like that. We shared our life stories, we laughed together, we made memories, we took pictures and we had a lot of fun together. It was a very memorable day. It reminded me of how happy I was when I was still in high school with them. Thanks to my high school, I had a chance to meet such amazing people who brought me only good vibes. I miss them so much and I can’t wait until the day I can meet them again.

Reading

Just like many other people, I love spending my spare time reading books. Reading not only helps me cure my boredom but also teaches me a lot of beautiful things in this world. Books, to me, are like my friends. I always choose a book that suits my feelings at that period of time.  It tells me stories, it tells me facts, it teaches me many helpful things for my life. Also, reading, especially in other languages than my first language can help me improve my language skill. With all of those reasons, reading is my most favorite hobby ever. Tell me about your hobbies. Do you like reading books?

Friends

If there is someone asks me to define “friends”, I would say: Friends are also my family. I’ve always had a feeling that I’m the luckiest person on earth as my friends are always beside me whenever I have any troubles. As I have my friends with me, I can travel anywhere with them, have the best memories with them. As I have my friends with me, I can do anything I want, even though it can be embarrassing. As I have my friends with me, I can laugh, I can cry, I can be whoever I want to be without any judgment. Thanks to them, I could live more happily. Thank you, my precious friends.

Nancy.
