Hi [subscriber:firstname | default:explorer]

It’s already the last month of this year.... time flies so quick!! What was your resolution for 2020?? ...Me?? My resolution was improving myself in Golf and Mandarin Chinese!!! Well... I can not say “I did it!” but at least I tried!!! Hehe
We tend to be busy at doing something else and forgot the resolution after a few months unless you wrote it down or keep thinking of it every single day, which is really hard.
I think it’s important to say your dream or goal out loud to your family and/or friends to let it come true. I’m planning to set up an event to talk about your BIG dreams in January❤️ Please rethink of yourself what you’re working for and what you really want to do/be❤️ Go guys!!! 2021 will be an another amazing year for sure!!!

Do You Spend Christmas With Your Family OR Couples ??

Christmas is mostly for family in the US. But in Japan, we consider Christmas the most romantic time of the year and most couples are dating on Christmas Eve and/or Christmas Day.
Do you know why we celebrate Christmas. I assume it’s one of the most important Christian events and learned a lot about Christmas in a bible study group that I joined three years ago. Until I joined the group, I had NO idea about the stories behind the Christmas celebration 🎉
Why do you celebrate it? Just enjoy the atmosphere? Or it’s because you’re religious? I’d like know!!

December Cooking Lesson on Tuesday the Dec 15th at 6:30pm-7:30pm

This month, we’ll cook Chicken Nanban, made with fried chicken coated in a crispy batter that is soaked in a sweet & sour sauce.
Chicken Nanban is from Miyazaki prefecture in Japan. Basically it’s Karaage (Japanese fried chicken) with tartar sauce. I personally like Chicken Nanban better than Karaage... Why don’t you try it with your family instead of KFC☺️?
