ひさしぶり!

It:s been a while! Sorry I haven:t updated in forever guys Dx! I:ve been really busy with...autumn break? Hahahah! I really have been though. Here:s what:s been happening!

alexis naquel foreign exchange 2008 Japan Japanese This is my host sister! Her name is Alan, in case you guys didn:t know ;)! She has 2 jobs right now, Macdonalds and a Yakiniku restaurant. Megumi and I decided to visit her one day, and Megumi snapped a secret picture of her XD! Hahahah!

It was recently my birthday! (10/1) On my b-day, Megumi and I went shopping, and by afternoon we were both starving...so...Megumi ordered this at a soba shop! alexis naquel foreign exchange 2008 Japan Japanese Don dada donnnnn!!! INTRODUCING FUJI-SAAAAAN!!! It was literally a mountain of noodles...it was so incredible! Megumi couldn:t eat all of it though because it was so huge D8!

alexis naquel foreign exchange 2008 Japan Japanese This is Megumi and the mountain of noodles before she started eating it XD.

alexis naquel foreign exchange 2008 Japan Japanese This is me making a funny face and marveling at how flippin: huge it was D8!

alexis naquel foreign exchange 2008 Japan Japanese This is what I ordered at that soba shop. They had Udon noodles with Mochi, and I lurv both, so I got it ^^!

I don:t have any pictures of my b-day party, but I have video of it that I:m going to be uploading later ^^. Anyway!

alexis naquel foreign exchange 2008 Japan Japanese A few days after my b-day, we visited this place! Also known as Akarenga ;D. There was a huge German festival there with a bunch of beer places...it was so funny! There was a ton of drunk people hahahah! But Megumi and I avoided the beer place and went window shopping inside of Akarenga ;D. They had a bunch of stuff! We didn:t buy anything though ^^.

alexis naquel foreign exchange 2008 Japan Japanese This is a picture of me by the bay next to Akarenga ;D.

alexis naquel foreign exchange 2008 Japan Japanese And me in front of the giant ferris wheel and the giant Minato Mirai building ;D! Woohoo!

I also got to go to Shibuya yesterday! I didn:t take many pictures, but I took some video of Ichimarukyuu (Shibuya 109), and the giant TV screens they have there. It:s awesome! Here:s a picture of me in front of Hachikou. alexis naquel foreign exchange 2008 Japan Japanese I actually thought it was going to be a bigger place, but it:s actually a really small place right by the scramble crossing where there:s always 2384725608720 people XD. We went slightly early in the morning/early afternoon, so there weren:t as many people. When we left, there were more people though ^^;.

Okay, so...I was at my little host brother:s Kindergarten building the other day, and Megumi and I were headed for the restroom, when I spotted this sign outside the door. alexis naquel foreign exchange 2008 Japan Japanese Ohhhh yeah XD. Ledies` XDDD. It was hilarious! I saw this and was like, `Eh?...is that supposed to say :Ladies:?` It was so funny! We talked with the janitor about it, and we all laughed and stuff. It was amazing XD.

Anyway! That:s all I really have to say for now I guess ;D. I:ve fallen in love with this awesome Japanese drama called Ikemen Paradaisu. It has a bunch of really amazingly hot Japanese guys in it, and this one girl who is going to an all-guy:s school. She doesn:t like being a girl, so she talks like a guy and dresses like one and has her hair sort of like a guy:s. It:s short anyway XD. The girl is a really famous actress out here! I can:t remember what her name is though. She:s on commercials and 2 of my favorite shows though. It:s amazing XD.

Well, I guess I:ll update more when something happens or when I have the time ;D! Much loves everyone!
