You may stop to read it if you got tired..;) Dorota didi!!!! Thanks thanks thanks!!! Yes, I became 20 years old on 2nd February!!!!!
FINALLY it's legal for me to drink alcohol.... I was a little bit afraid to drink my first alcohol on my birthday... yes, I'm good girl so it was my first drinking in my life, but I found it's so nice!!!!!! ...........................................Anyway, I don't know how about in your country, but in Japan 20th is significant turn point in our life. It's a gate of adult world. So we celebrate all 20 years old people gathering in one place of each district on 9th January. On this day all we girls wore Kimono, Japanese traditional cloth, that ! is similar to Yukata which I wore in Kolkata but is much thicker and difficult and uncomfortable to wear. That was so fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I met lots of friends of primary school....everybody hadn't changed so much. I send you photos; alone, with Mama, with friends. Saki......I recomend at least to take photo in Kimono!! Do you wanna listen about my birthday??
It was surely unforgettable. As you imagine, I welcame that moving moment (AM0:00) with my boyfriend in my house. (Actually I celebrated the before night with him eating strange food which I
made in my house) In the morning we went out and he was keeping the plan secret for me. Then he took me to a lental car shop!!!! I've never imagined to sit down next to him in the car. He got license while I was in India. I rode in the car being surprised, ashamed, and happy. But can you imagine?!?!
Just 5 minitues after that, he crashed into telegraph pole in ! narrow street!!!!!!!! It was just into pole but it was serious caz he had to pay fine to the lental car shop. It's as much as $700!!!!!!!! After that He kept on driving for 2 hours but it was so scared for both of us. "Grean! Go! What are you doing??""Look at the sign!!! It's one way!!!""Stop!!! The sign is RED!!!!" He's totally confused just after the accident.......
So I had to cheer him up and navigate all the time. We had great dinner and he prepare the cake with my name but he kept confused and shocked till the end of the day. See?? What a wonderful 20th birthday!!!!! Everybody wonder "What Keika is doing without going to her university??" You know I came back to Japan caz I wanna take the next step for my future. I've started to support the cure of mentally disabled child; autistic. (if you don't know this word, ask Asia). I observ! ed how some experts do, and immitate them. Everyday is full of discovery and surprised!!!!!!!! And I'm soooooooooooo happy only if I'm with children. Now my dream is to be school social worker or counselor. I met some expert and students who are related with this kind of matter.And am thinking I wanna get as much experience as possible with children who needs help mentaly. Now I'm searching the opportunity to deal with such children, not disabled, but children who has problem in house or school. By the way, my re-integration will be held the next Saturday and Wednesday. I have to put Japanese subtitle into my video.... Haaa......... it'll be tough......Lots of AIESECers and my friends will come..... Wow!!! If I can get agreement with MJCC (my NGO), I wanna collect donation, I don't konw how it will be. I'll try. I don't work in AIESEC so much as player. But I wanna do as much as possible as OBSN. In my LC tra! inee is now only one, and what's more even if some trainees were here, they live alone and even they don't konw each other. For me I couldn't imagine to live alone in India, and needless to say, our trainees' friendship are so precious,,,, So now I advise for AIESECers to change the circunstances of trainees in
Japan. It seems difficult for AIESECers to imagine the trainees feeling, so I think this should be my job role. My weight hasn't changed at all......Though I play tennis often, I eat much after tennis.....it's nonesense. My boyfriend seems to give up to encourage me to go on diet. Well, these days I can meet with him only once or twice a week, so actually he can't feel my weight visibly so often... lucky boy ;)
Fuu.......one night I dreamt about MJCC, and the other night I dreamt about trainees. In the former dream Robi Da, Sanjoy, Safique! , and Nazim came to Tokyo. I was soooooooo surprised and happy to see you here!!!!!!! In the latter dream I don't remember clearly but some of you were sitting down and eating food together. I remember clearly only this part that Dorota made strange face and laughed
in a loud voice!!! It's only pity that you trainees can't watch the Olympic Game. Sorry, I'm really enjoying it!!!!! How about everyone in MJCC?? Are you interested in it or do you prefer cricket?? I really really miss you all......... I am about to cry whenever I listened American Pie...actually I listen to it every every day. I guess everything hasn't changed in MJCC and everything has changed in Gurusaday Road.
But wherever you are now, I love you so much...... Do the best, Aim your dream, I also will do. Bye Bye!!!!!! Love Love Love Keika"
