[Experiences] Learning A Language & Language Awkwardness

Hello. I thought I’d try hitting a topic hitting more personally and more familiar with those taking their love for Japan, or other nation, more seriously. Learning a language, finding themselves in awkward situations, and just any ‘touristy’ opinions. Perspective of this article being in a Canadian, Slovak, and Japanese perspective of experiences.

– Slovakia – Bratislava – UFO Bridge. (2008)

Pokemon: United Adventures – Nintendo’s Weakness

Heyo. I’ve been wanting to make this kind of article for a lengthy amount of time now, especially after reading numerous other relating to the same topic as others have gone into detail with. So much detail that it’s highly puzzling as to why we haven’t obtained an actual worthy Pokemon game for one and all to enjoy. Granted, it may be posted in vain.

– Pixelmon used for reference; Flying high, far, and free.

(All images taken from Minecraft’s Pixelmon mod for reference of peoples’ desire. Most likely a vain hope in acquiring Nintendo’s & Gamefreak’s attention.)

Foxy Sinterklaas 2014

Heyo! Another Varakitsu foxy article sharing with you European’s festivities of Sinterklaas. Myself and Varakitsu both try our best (indoors) to be all festive while much preferring the outdoor scenery for such a festive moment. Trinity Seven soundtrack, advent calender, and some choco-nose to be had.

– Santa Vara & Fennekin delivering a much desired present.

Snowy Vara Snowfall

Heyo! Another round of snowfall attracting both mine and Varakitsu’s attention to be shared on here. A nice “first” snowfall of snow that actually managed to accumulate appropriately on the ground. Myself, Vara, and Fubuki all joined. Sadly no pictures of Fubuki due to energy being drained from camera.

– Vara amusingly admiring the the Canadian Geese in the background while supernaturally using her red crystal.

Varakitsu’s Kon Kero Kon

Greetings! Myself, Varakitsu, and Kohiru went out for some nice foxy and photography fun during one of Ottawa’s bright and sunny days. Wanted to show off Varakitsu’s new outfit she gained in a proper manner within this outdoor photoshoot to show off both her foxy self and the outfit’s beauty. Also hoping the title doesn’t mean anything stupid in another language. Running out of titles.

– A gorgeous foxy admiring some natural Ottawa beauty.

Remembering A Foxy Busou Shinki Beginning

Greetings! I wanted to finally once again come back to some Busou Shinki fun on this blog by also remembering when I first joined the Busou Shinki fun 4 years ago. Looking back at my posts I officially jumped onto the Busou Shinki bandwagon on August 10th, 2010 with Busou Shinki Benio.

– Benio, Renge, and Kohiru armed with their weapons.

Japanese Summer Festival + Doll Meet 2014

Heyo! What an awesome Saturday this was. A nice Japanese summer festivals for the JETAA members by them at Ottawa’s city hall. Also had a Doll meet swiftly changed up once we were made away of the Japanese festivities to go there instead. Both of these events being highly entertaining and interesting.

– Sumos to the left, main info tent in the middle, and festivities to the right. Was actually quite worth it.

[Movie] Modra

This movie took me a couple years just to get my hands on it. I ended up having to set it to record on Bell Fibe’s PVR recording overnight to allow for me to watch it during the afternoon. I’ve been curious and wanting to see how this movie played out. I was curious to see what I would recognize from my many visits there and to see Modra from a fellow Canadian’s perspective.

– Teen romance set in Modra Slovakia.

(All images taken from the official site; Would like to apologize for any nostalgic ramblings, but do hope you enjoy them.)
