mommy moments-name game

mommy moments

Another exciting theme to share here in mommy moments, and our theme for this week is all about Name Games... Japanese name usually written in kanji (Chinese characters), although some names use hiragana or even katakana, or a mixture of kanji and kana. While most "traditional" names use kun'yomi (native Japanese) kanji readings, a large number of given names and surnames use on'yomi (Chinese-based) kanji readings as well.


Keina (恵奈)
My husband is one of many KEI ( 恵, けい) in his family, and we decided that we should name our first child starting with KEI. My mother in- law did all the regular stuff she looked, searched and agonized over for a long time until we both agree that Keina is the perfect name for her. The Japanese meaning of my KEI is Blessed and NA is respectful.


Rio  (里緒)
Rio's name is simple and beautiful name. As a Japanese female name, Rio is written with the characters for "jasmine" (里) and "center; middle" (緒). Other possibilities include "jasmine" (RI) an "cord; strap; beginning" (o), as well as "village; parent's home" (ri) and "cherry" (o) another meaning of (RIO) is river.

Share your precious moments with us here in Mommy Moments. Happy weekend everyone !!!

getting old- originally written on 8/31/08


Before Onechang ( my eldest daughter) leave the house for school she asks me this question " Mom, is it necessary that all the people in this world will die? for example, the old people? Why do people die? I was in total blank because for me that question is hard to explain.I said; You know honey there are things in this world sometimes its hard to explain, like your question but for sure in a right time I will explain it to you OK... We all know that death is a natural part of life and lately I notice that she's been very curious about that for couple of weeks already .About dying and where do people go when they die. I know she deserves to know the truth but for me I don't want to answer her question for now, because she is too vulnerable to accept the reality that is why I chose not too. I thought the Q&A is over until she asks me for another one, Mom she look straight in my eyes and said " when you be come an old lady you will not die right because you love me and you would not leave me ? And I said "yes I love you ! You know that did you? I want you to remember this, Mama is always here for both of you no matter what happens my love for you is forever honey. But just promise me when I grow old you will take good care of me and papa right? She answered me with a smile , "I will mama promise."

how old is old?

Chris and Enchie. Thank you for the tag, I know its overdue already,sorry! Anyway about the question. How old is old? For a simple definition of OLD the first thing in our mind is a long duration, not new. But in my belief-opinion old is not about the age it's all about our views in life. Every day is a continually changing thing a learning experience for us. You can describe old as how many candles you have on your cake. But what matters most is your heart that really defines the true meaning of old... I hope it helps :p

I'd like to pass this tag to:

food trip Friday- simple breakfast




Cereals, milk tea, bread toast and grapes.

Eating breakfast gives us a jump start in the morning. I'm not a big breakfast eater, however I try to eat at least a piece of bread and for my family I kept switching up different foods like cereals, bread or pancakes but most of the time I prepare a "typical Japanese breakfast" that consists of white rice, miso soup, grilled salmon fish and vegetable salads.

Join us here in Food Trip Friday. Have a fun~fun weekend everyone :p

Sick bear Pictures, Images and Photos

Quick post!!! We came home from our trip to Nirasaki city today as part of our summer vacay. While were driving, I notice that my five year old daughter was extremely tired and running a little over a 98.6°F (37 °C) to 99.6°F (37.6°C) fever. She had no other symptoms though. We gave her some medicine and she seems fine { actually she's here beside me watching Disney channel }, anyways! As I said there were no other symptoms other than a fever and I'm getting more concern. Is this normal to run a fever for no reason? Right now as I checked her temp. from 102°F (39°C) it went down from 100.4°F (38°C) . Get well soon Rio, I hope you feel better na honey....Love you baby!!!
