i thought that things here in japan are high price, especially when i lived in tokyo. but you know it's just 535yen. the lunch is not very gogeous, but ok. and 535yen is also not very cheap, but it's also ok price. (when i was 20 and a student in nagoya, i used to have a lunch at like 300yen or 350yen).
and look at this picture, it's a pic from flickr...the group "campus food". the one is from Leeds uni. they are almost the same price. i would like to say "everything in the uk is high price!". you agree with me, eh? :>

i don't need an electric machine to make espresso, moca is enough nice for me. but at the office, it might be dangerous to use gas stove (because i have burnt a moca before, i made espresso and forgot to turn off the fire and put the moca on it...for a while...like 5 mins and it burnt.....i don't have enough confidence not to do it again anymore....).
so i bought an electric one at amazon. i will come soon...
before it comes, i need beans and sugar. first, this is the suger. it's made in france, this kinda sugar is good for espresso! :>
i am looking forward to have the machine!

my brain doesn't work yet...i need time to be back to the real world ;P anyway i had a lunch at a school cafe today. in this season, the school cafe is more crowded at lunch time than normal. newvies still don't know how to avoid it and have nothing to do in lunch time yet....it will be better on next month.
the lunch is from up left, renkon, gyunyu kan, misoshiru, down left, nanohana, toufu, gohan.

it's not very serious here in japan, because it's a bit far from chinese desert that is a source of the dust. it makes the sky clouds, cover cars by small amount of dust. but in china or korea, it's near by the source, so they say it's more serious. a korean paper says that when it's very serious, they can't see a builing just 1 km ahead. is it true?
i belive that the days we have the dust are incleasing lately, it might be because of chinese economical progress. gee.

When i was living in tokyo, a canadian guy i knew on internet came there. We were going to had something for dinner there, i thought what would be good to have for him. He didn't have so much experience in japan yet so japanese thing would be nice in my idea. So we went to an okonomiyaki shop in bubaigawara (tokyo). In the shop, even after the okonomiyaki came to him, He didn't show any expression on his face (NERD!). So i asked him if he had ever tried it. he said no. but he had seen it ranma 1/2...an anime.......YOU NERD! ^^;; hihihi

Current Mac's OS is Mac OS X, and this is almost the same thing as the old NeXT STEP, the OS works on NeXT computers. Mac OS X's developing toolkit is called Cocoa, this is almost the same thing of NeXT STEP. The developing tools, like the "interface builder" is also from NeXT STEP, not a new thingy at all.
NeXT had a CPU developed by motorola at the first, but after it became obvious that the NeXT failed comacially, NeXT STEP was ported to other platform, like IBM PC clones. NeXT STEP had a mechanism to share one executable with some platforms...this is called universal binary.
Old men, like me (and maybe you too) knows this story so no wonder that Macintosh with intel will success. It's not that bad to listen to old men somtimes, heh? ;-)

anyway we had lunch under a sakura tree...onigiri and some stuff...like chikuwa, tamagoyaki, takuan. I like'em all.
Aftre we finished it, we went to a cafe by walk. Because we felt like missing dolce ;-) It's also nice to walk through the park to the cafe. The cafe was with a table outside and we can't have it there ;P even it's really beautiful season this time, and they don't use it....when are they going to use it? non capisco. anyway we took cake and tea, it was nice.

SPRING - G.M. Hopkins
Nothing is so beautiful as Spring --
When weeds in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush;
Thrush's eggs look little low heavens, and thrush
Through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring
The ear, it strikes like lightnings to hear him sing;
The glassy peartree leaves and blooms, they brush
The descending blue; that blue is all in a rush
With richness; the racing lambs too have fair their fling.
What is all this juice and all this joy?
A strain of the earth's sweet being in the beginning
In Eden garden. -- Have, get, before it cloy,
Before it cloud, Christ, lord and sour with sinning,
Innocent mind and Mayday in girl and boy,
Most, O maid's child, thy choice and worthy the winning.

Lately, I'm studying in an university....on a doctoral course. When I say this, people often think I'm going to be a doctor...medical one....but it's not for MD but Ph.D. I like University...well it would be more true if I would say I like almost all kind of schools. To say the truth, I like them including from Highschool to Driving license school. Anyway, It's time to start a new semester this time here in japan. There are many newbies in the campus and ex-newbies also to get somebody joining their group activities. (I saw some students wearing football (THE AMERICAN ONE) uniform and giving ad papers around. I didn't know that there is a football team in this univ.
It was really long time ago when i was a newbie, at least when i was it, it was still 20ct anyway. But this season, begining of Apr, it makes me remember when i was, what i felt. Time waits for no one. Am i too sentimental? ;-)
i heard that sakura bloomed already in tokyo on tv news. but it doesn't in okayama yet. okayama is located a bit south than tokyo, but it's warmer in tokyo than here. yesterday, i saw a sakura tree on a path i was going to gym. it looks like going to bloom soon. i always find that spring has come when i see sakura blooms. i like it.
