Perfume&Capsule

Perfume is so cute…

Well, when they first became popular a few years ago, I just thought “Ahhhh again…just another typical Japanese girls group…” but finding them again recently, I was rather surprised how cute they are!

Search their video on the internet! Their dance is cute too, I think they’re much better than AKB48…? My favourite is “Take me Take me”, “Game”, “Edge” etc. The first bit of “Fake it” is too cool. By the way, this combination of SciFi-ish “digital music” and cute girls wearing cute clothes looks so Japanese anime/comic culture…haha.

Anyway, I will leave talking about how cute they’re to boys fans…as you might find it from my favourite list, I think I just like the music by Nakata Yasutaka, so I started listening to Capsule too. Yeah I think it’s cool. I like “Jumper”.

Although I really don’t understand “Kyarii Pamyu Pamyu” who is also produced by Nakata Yasutaka, I really wish Perfume keep doing well! By the way, my favourite member is Kashiyuka. I want to see them live…

Happy New Year 2012

Happy New Year everyone! I didn’t update this blog that often last year, but…I want to write a bit more…I will try.

So, the review of 2011.

[It was…tough] Of course one of the big incident in 2011 was the earthquake, but even before that, I had experienced my cousin’s death. I can’t believe it’s been one year already…January last year was all about crying and feeling lonely….and then when I almost got recovered, the earthquake. It was quite heart-breaking time and the moment I could see both good/bad aspects of Japan, as well as the aspects I love and hate.

[Worked…a lot!] Regarding the work, I think it was a good year. Well, of course there was a lot of failure too, especially working with Japanese client was very very challenging for me and struggled a lot as I didn’t know how to behave in the cultural difference. However, that means I learned a lot too. It was the year of learning as an interaction designer.

So…2012 should be…

[Slower…] I feel like I have been working sooooo hard in recent years….maybe I can be a bit more slower this year and look around. Finally I’m feeling like I’m getting used to the life in London, so need to enjoy!

[Meet people] Now I want to do it more, but not with the feeling of “career opportunity obligation”. I want to enjoy going out more, and want to laugh more with everyone.

[Better private life! again] Actually this is something I couldn’t really achieve last year…I always spend too much energy for the work, not for the private life! But last year I spent more time for cooking, started going to the gym, joined Sanshin-kai, restarted watching football…(I support Liverpool now! Yey!) , maybe I should spend even more time for these things. I’m gonna listen to more music, watch more films, visit more exhibitions!

So, let’s make a wonderful 2012 together everyone 🙂
