What special about this day?
March 14 is :
(1) ホワイトデー, howaito dē (White Day).
It’s the time for men to present the chocolate to the woman as expression of love – as opposite to Valentine’s day. 😛
On White Day, men (usually dressed in white linen) who received a honmei-choco(prospective winner choco) on Valentine’s Day are expected to return the favor by giving gifts, usually more expensive, and sometimes the term sanbai kaeshi (三倍返し, sanbai kaeshi literally, “thrice the return”) is used to describe the generally recited rule that the return gift should be two- to three-times the cost of the Valentine’s gift.
No wonder I saw my senpai wearing in white and so neat – a bit uncommon style. fufufufu.
Did I receive choco from my senpai? Poor me.. nope, ha ha.. Since I gave them giri choco(obligation choco). fu fu.. But the point is that they all know that I’m taken 😛
Actually today I was asked for a fine dining in hotel located in Shibuya by the visiting prof candidate who visit our lab(but he invited only me). I guided him last week even only around campus only and had meal with him. I’m just trying my best to be friendly as my senpai are serious type and not care much about his presence. But I felt worried and cautious since he seems a bit “aggressive”
I know I shouldn’t think that way. But I have no idea, perhaps it’s the sense trained in Indonesia, that we’ve to be cautious to the ‘stranger’ wherever we are + experience I had before, more or less it went like these :
In my early arrival, I was applying for LLJ(Let’s Learn Japanese) in my neighbourhood, it’s like NPO providing one to one Japanese lesson to the foreigners. I was matched to about retirement age man.
We met once to clarify the schedule, having the lesson. But after that, he sent me terrifying email : “No matter what do, all I think about is you” wacks.. scared.. And then I asked to change the volunteer..
I know it’s a lot of sexual harassment in train by touching the girls’ butt. In campus, there’s also bunch of information for the sexual harassment to protect the female students.
Another time, my tutor told me that there’s professor of a well-known university being arrested for the sexual harassment. I concluded this kind of thing is not about age,status. We just need to be cautious
See how environment, films, experiences will give affect on reaction to surrounding as well. 😛
Despite all those things, I just behave, buried all the suppositions playing in the mind while keep cautious. Luckily/Unfortunately I did apologize to him for not able to go, I should come home early, because I need to clean up the fridger that’ll be taken by my friend tomorrow and also continued my packaging. So I ended my dinner in Kappa sushi with my friend. yummy, he he..
(2) This is the birthday of a world figure.
He is somebody we have all heard about for his earth shaking theories — He thought in another dimension, unknown and practicably unknowable to most of us. Most of us rest our case on our senses; so, to the average layman, His theories (never mind that they have checked out in reality) are incredible: space is curved; the shortest distance between two points is not a straight line; the universe is finite but unbounded; parallel lines eventually meet; light rays are curved; time is relative and cannot be measured in exactly the same way everywhere; measurements of length vary with speed; the universe is cylindrical instead of spherical in shape; a body in motion will contract in size but increase in mass; and a fourth dimension – time – is added to the familiar three of height, length, and width. Most of us can only shake our head and base our belief in all of this very strange stuff, simply on the basis of what he has said.
Have you made your guess who he’s? More clues
As a student he was not especially outstanding except when it came to mathematics where he definitely showed signs of genius at an early age.
He was the first to improve upon the theories of Newton, observed the theory of relativity.
Yup, you get it! It’s Albert Einstein b’day. he he..
Have a nice weekend guys!
