New Year in Japan
Whoaw time flies so fast, I never felt 2012 has ended. Through God and all the friends surrounding me here plus the help of internet to connect with loved-ones I never felt sadness or homesickness being away from my country. And I always try to look on brighter and positive side of my life. I may have other dreams but I am happy to where I am now.
Just after a tiring day at work, Sam and Aubrey invited us to have simple dinner at Aubrey’s place. Sam prepared a traditional Japanese food served only during New year’s eve and on the New year day.
Just before welcoming 2012, another Japanese tradition that we did was to visit a tera or temple. It was freaking cold that night at 1c. We prayed, of course i prayed to the God I’ve known. Ringed a bell and observed other Japanese custom.
