I was enjoying single life in London, till I met my "egg" and became a mother of 2 boys. I originally started this weblog for my families in Japan and New Zealand, when I found I was pregnant with my first baby. In late 2008, with my family I moved to Penang in Malaysia, after 12 year stay in the U.K. I've also lived in Singapore and Canada before.

bus drivers and him.
I've sent them an email telling them the
school is a part of compulsory education, and funded by the Japanese
government, which means they use our tax. How can they treat children so
unfairly, and take off an opportunity to learn?
also didn't seem to be sincere and trying to find out the solution
together with me. They never suggested anything more than me or Jason
take holiday from work, and all my ideas were simply rejected, sometimes
without any clear reasons. They looked as if they forgot they were
educators, but behaved like immigration officers in a communist country.
I never felt they understood Arata's feeling and tried to give him a
So disappointed by them. And I feel pity on Arata as his other friends can go but not him because his parents are both working.
