now, the most popular topics in japan are the substance abuse in the show business and the election of the house of representatives. today is polling day, and my husband and i voted an my city hall.

we are watching the expectation of the poll on tv, may be....the democratic party of japan will win, defeat for present government party (the liberal democratic party) , will change the president of this country again at no distant date. the present president ASO will change to new president HATOYAMA.

well, in japan there is the traditional doll "DARUMA", not drawing one eye on his face (blank). and we draw the new eye on the blank part when win on the election, game, examination, somethings.

this is that DARUMA doll.

and this is the HAKU- DARUMA ;)
i think she is so cute but she looks dislikes wearing her cloths...
please let me have the good news, HAKU♪



thank you for your answers!
was it easy??

this is HAKU. short, thick tail. sometime she answer using her tail instead of mewing.

and this is BYAKU. long, thin tail. she answer to dad calling only. i want to ask her why does not she respond to mom, if i can speak cat language.

both tail are hooked type. it is called "happy key tail (the tail like a key shape, can open the door to happy)" in japan.

BYAKU: did you do correct answer?? ;)


the difference of two

they are born at same day and a double.
my friends visit to my house first time can not differentiates HAKU and BYAKU.

well, what is a easy way of distinguishing between both?

my husband and i can tell with their face (especially eyes) and mewing!
and their physique are little bit different but thie weight are almost same. BYAKU is like a ballerina type (slender but has enough muscles), HAKU is like a basketball player type (have broad shoulders) if they are human.

but most big difference is .....their butt!

which tail is HAKU and BYAKU?? ;)


his name is 1st GUNDAM!!

GUNDAM is one of the most famous animation in japan. the big robot operated good human fight against another machine handled bad people.... may be that story. every boys liked him, and used to have a plastic toy-model kit. of course my husband did!!
