The other day we went out to get passport photo taken. He (no, I) chose to wear the UNIQLO suit we got from Hokkaido friend. It was still little too big for Hiro, but it could fit.
Oh my gosh, I should have called up the photo place beforehand so that they could have prepared for the photo shoot for a newborn…. There’s only one staff there, and she took about 20 minutes to look for a white cloth and decide where to take photos. Anyway, after several tries and milk spitting up, we could manage to take one ok photo.
As Hokkaido friend’s son(my former student)’s birthday is coming up, I have been searching for a nice gift – a birthday present, and also to say thanks for the gift for Hiro. The last email I received from her said that she uses Australian brand cosmetic called “Coral Moon”. I’ve never heard the brand before, but after searching online I found that this brand is pretty famous in Japan (more search results in Japanese than in English).
Coral Moon is operated in Noosa, Queensland, producing the natural skin care and aromatherapy products. I wonder if there is any shop selling Coral Moon products in Perth. Their products looks good, I may want to try one.
I’m pretty sure I’ll buy one or two Coral Moon items for my friend, but I’ve gotta think about the gift for her son too. He is turning 12 (I believe) this year…. Wow I can’t believe it. He was so little when I was teaching English to him in Japan!
I think I will look for something Australian or English related item. I wonder how good his English is… I know it’s very hard to keep track of other languages if you don’t use them. But, Hakodate is a famous city in Hokkaido and I’m sure there’re many foreign people living/traveling around the area. Maybe he’s got one or two English-speaking friend? Hope to see them in Hokkaido or Perth sometime in near future.
