Obviously now it's getting popular in Japan. 7yrs-old, that's the age when they start to learn to read 'kana'. So according to the topic, just let kids to use a dictionary for anything, for instance, they had an orange for lunch, then look up for 'orange' in a dictionary. And every single word they take, they have to put a sticky note. When they have 500, or even 1000 sticky notes on their dictionary, they get a prize. I mean, it sounds kinda good... Well, it sounds fun... But, does it work for our kids with English dictionary? Well... Why not... Right? John will be 6 in this summer, maybe I can let him start that with my help...?

This Japanese fried chicken is actually my mom's original recipe, since I was little, I love this chicken. It's a lil difference from regular Japanese fried chicken, she doesn't marinade. Put chicken in flour n starch mix, then deep fry, and then dunk in soy sauce + cooking sake + lil water. It's very yummy.
Kids also loved bacon-wrapped asparagus. This is very popular for especially bento-box in Japan. This way, asparagus gets bacon flavor, so it's easy to eat for kids.
Anyway... I think it was good dinner...lol

Or should I say, so many things that I wanna do... I thought I would have more time so it would be great to do online college while Chris's gone. I was still planning many other stuffs, like turbo-jam, taking kids to pool, doing study with John... Which I am doing everything I was planning to do, but not much time for my college...lol. Well, I am definitely enjoying, especially thx to my good friends... I hope I can improve myself by all meanings by the time Chris come home... I mean it's not like I was not happy with myself or anything like that, but I think it's very important to always look forward. So I think it's very good thing that I have so many things to do and keep myself busy and active. Wow... I really am a super positive person, huh?lol
