My sister from another mother

Sorry for the miss in action on social networks recently. From this blog post, I mentioned that I'll be receiving a guest from abroad. At first, my family first hesitated if we should host somebody because we never have anyone stay in our house for a long period. And there were so many things that is inappropriate that our family do for a guest to see, such as digging our nose or farting out loud lol.

Making that decision was something we will never regret :)

Introducing my host sister, Kanae Nakanishi.

This is taken Friday,05/08/2013, when she came back from her second host family in Kuantan.

I didn't manage to snap a lot of photos with her on the first few days of her stay. After the first 3 days with us, she went to Kuantan. She told us that she enjoy that 3 days with us. On a Sunday night we brought her for karaoke. To my surprise, she LOVE singing. But too bad there wasn't many Japanese songs to select, nevertheless, our family get to hear many nice songs :)

I think we clicked immediately because we share many common interest. She love singing, our family love singing. She like animals, we have Nelson (our cat).

[Friday] She came back from Kuantan, feeling tired. I had school that morning.

Eating an early dinner after buying some food from bazaar ramadhan. She like murtabak.

Making origami. She says she wasn't good in folding origami -o- The three of us were preparing for her day in the kindergarden. Will blog more about this next time.

The day she came back from Kuantan was on Apple's Birthday and we celebrate it together. She even amde Apple a birthday card and bought a barney pillow for Apple. She knew Apple like Barney so much lol. We didn't expect her to give anything but she did! Thank you on behalf of Apple.

We knew that she like pink so we bought her a pink baju kurung. Never buy a baju kurung before, so this was the first. A gift from us to her. It was for her farewell lunch fashion show. So many people wear different types of Malaysia traditional clothes on that day.

We sent her to the airport yesterday and yeah, mom and dad miss her already. She took a very long flight back home. Glad that she arrived home safely. Now that she's back home, our family goes back to square. I have to go back to revising for SPM. I don't think I'm prepared for SPM -.-

In conclusion, our family was very happy to have her in our family. It was definitely a good experience hosting someone. Not only we get to know Kanae's country (Japan), she improved her English, I improve my Japanese, the most important thing is we learn to have this host family relationship. Esther, Apple and I gain a sister. Mom and dad gain a daughter. But most of all, we all gain weight! lol

We hope to meet again someday :)

{Cheers, Pr.}
