Japanese High School Exchange

(●´∀`)ノ*【こ】*【ん】*【に】*【ち】*【ゎ】*

On wednesday, 41 students from Shimada High School in Shizuoka, Japan came to our school for an exchange program. Though it's a one days program but everyone made friends despite the language block.

Now this is better.

In the buddy system, we were randomly matched with our Japanese buddy. There were some dissapointment to some as they were targetting the leng zai... = =

Whilst teaching Yuki and Mariko how to play congkak. They don't understand anyways ( ̄▼ ̄)

It was very hard to communicate. They are bad in English, we are bad in Japanese. We had to show sign and break down the english words into the simplest form to communicate. Somehow, I felt useful that day for being able to speak simple Japanese... ゜+・(о´▽`о)゜+・ Yuki complimented that my Japanese was good too. (`・ω・´)vイェイ!

Lunch time. Itadakimasu! It's actually my first time seeing Japanese saying the phrase before eating. They really said it!

Showed some pictures of my brother and Bon Odori in Malaysia to Yuki and she was surprised that we have Bon Odori in Malaysia. Yuki showed me photos of her playing Gashapon too.

After lunch, there was a basketball match. I hope to get those photos soon.

I regret for not taking many pictures. Too busy talking and watching. Anyways, photos were not from me but my schoolmates. Mine are still stucked in the camera. I shall get more from Charmange.

I MISS YUKI!
