Oregon 2011

Best summer vacation in the U.S. ever! I spent two weeks in Oregon based in Portland. I used to be a very nature person who loves mountain climbing, rock climbing, skiing, and biking. Oregon is the best state to enjoy nature in the U.S. I draw blue print for my future, which is to be a Portlandia who enjoy weekends in the nature and works as a freelance illustrator weekdays. But for achieving the goal, I need to be an successful illustrator....

After I read the novel "Mary Antoinette" By Shusaku Endo, a Japanese renowned author, my impression on her was completely changed. Then she became one of my favorite woman in the history. Many movies captured only her gorgeous life and her ignorance, but the novel captured the different aspect of her life. You may feel sympathy toward her.

August is the best month of the year, because it's my birthday month!
One of presents I got from my present was a ice shaving machine. I asked to them to have the one, because it shaped like a bear and his eyes were moving when I shaved ice. It called Kyoro-chang. I guess it was 8 years old birthday present. How pure kid I was. I put the cube shaped ices into his belly, then I could shave ice. For 8 year-old child, the machine was an innovative machine in the world.
Before Kyoro-chang came to my home, my parents owned a very old-style shaving machine. It required a rounded ice to set the machine and shave by hand. If my mom forgot to frozen the ice, my brother and I accused my mom's laziness... my mom has never been lazy though. But Kyoro-chang kindly accepted cube ice that we normally use, so I could eat whenever I felt like eating! Also I remember the day I said good-bye to Kyoro-chang, because he was broken.
