My Nihon Buyo debut

Hi hi sisters .... errr, this isn't really BYJ news, more of my own. But since it has some BYJ bits in it, I'll post it here. In the past weekend, I made my solo Nihon Buyo (Japanese dance) debut. I was undeserving to have so many dear sisters coming all the way to cheer me on. Thank you so much for being so sweet and encouraging, I truly feel so much love from you :) The very cute card with their well wishes ......

The super gorgeous pink floral basket. They even brought the handsome man (for moral support) who first inspired me to go for the seemingly impossible and then to do my best! I was so moved to see his picture and my sisters' beautiful smiles :)

Life is amazing when you are learning new knowledge! If you're interested, you're welcome to check out my 'Sakura no Yume' blog :)

Those were the days

Hi hi sisters ..... these pics from BYJ mobile phone just reminded me of the song 'Those were the days', sung by Mary Hopkins. Yong Joon looked so young, innocent, carefree in that limegreen hoodie. And oh those long hair .....

A stroll in the museum

Hi hi sisters .... how are you? Really really busy this week with personal stuffs, just a quick one for fun, ok?

you see, Yong Joon ssi, our museum collects a vast selection of treasures ......
like this smiling Kannon, not very lady-like the way she's sitting, but nevertheless still managed to charm all of our visitors :)
And this lavish egg holder, probably used to hold poached dinosaur egg a million years ago. Imagine the poor chap's stomach after his hearty breakfast, huh?
And Mr. Ambassador of Tourism, I proudly present you our museum's in-house seafood restaurant!
Let's check out today's lunch special @@ Wow, there sure are a lot of fresh catches to choose from!
See that chubby one swimming at the back, I can almost taste it in soya sauce already :)
Slurp slurp, I think this place definitely qualifies as 'the Beauty of Korea', click click click! Repost from BYJGallery/Style, original from houren's blog

Happy Valentine's Day

Hi dear sisters ...... Hope you have a warm and sweet Valentine's Day with your loved ones! Hehe, you notice I said 'ones', I suppose that handsome one is not too far from your heart today :)

Hehe, in case you think I am having some romantic dinner at a 3-star Michelin restaurant, sipping fine champagne and nibbling on Imperial caviar, it's nothing further from the truth. We were all so busy with our own chores that mom, dad and son just decided to grab a stack of bento boxes and munched in front of TV watching the Vancouver Winter Olympic Games. I am never really big on special days like anniversary, birthday and Valentines. I don't mean to sound corny, but I really feel that if you are happy, then every day is a celebration.

This year's Valentine's Day happens to coincide with Chinese New Year, so I guess a lot of Bae sisters (and Yong Joon too) are very busy with their families. My wish that everyone will have a wonderful day filled with love and happiness :)

Sakura no Yume

Hi hi sisters .... just in case you wonder why I have been so busy, I was over at my cottage doing some final decorations. Hehe no no, I meant my new personal blog - Sakura no Yume :)

I never thought I needed a separate blog, as my love for Yong Joon is already a part of my journey, pretty much like other things in my life. Sharing this experience with BYJ sisters here are both joyous and precious to me and nothing will change. In the past 2 years, as I opened my eyes to the Japanese world of kimono, nihon buyo (dancing), chanoyu (tea), arts and literature, I know I'd like to study further to enjoy this beautiful culture. This is the beginning of my Sakura dream .....

Hehe, you're welcome to hop over to my cottage but please don't feel obliged, I won't be hurt :) Thanks!

One fine spring day

Hi hi sisters ...... I know it's in the middle of our cold winter, but we are getting a little warmth and sunshine from the smile of Yong Joon. Yeah, it's indeed 'one fine spring day' in our hearts :)

What is he toasting to??
love him in this bright yellow, or any other color @@
My gosh, is he picking a ring already?!

Hehe handsome prince, I think you need a bigger bunch than this to propose :)

Hehe, but if you are Yong Joon ssi, 10000 girls will say 'yes' even if you are holding an orange :)
lucky lucky gal!

Good luck, dear!

Emperor's new socks

Hi Hi sisters ..... you know, as much as I like to make this blog a fun, loving and beautiful place for us to share our journey with Yong Joon, I feel pretty unfulfilling these days not being able to write something more creative and meaningful because my days are so occupied with other interests in Japan. I am planning to make some re-organization of my post materials soon, hehe rest assured it's not going to affect this blog or my love for the handsome prince (ya chinggu, don't start celebrating yet!) So, please bear with me for posting pictures again :)

Hehe you know what our handsome prince has not been doing much lately? Ok ok, go without saying, he has not been acting, but that's not what I am thinking about. I meant to say he hasn't been going sockless! Yes, do you notice that he's been pretty much wearing leather boots or his converse sneakers in the past year? I still remember when I first saw our very proper and conservative Yong Joon baring his ankles (nice ankles, but still) with his leathers shoes, I really thought he forgot to wear his socks (hehe, a mild case of wardrobe malfunction)! After he explained to the reporters that he did wear socks inside his shoes, I still felt it was kind of strange. But hey, the man is so gorgeous that he transcends fashion, style and tradition. Who notice the socks down there anyway when you have a face this handsome up here, eh?
