    • LINGO Cooking Club 2/25

      Good evening to our Readers!!How are you today? It's a little cold out still but Spring is in the air!!!!On Saturday, the LINGO Cooking Club members got together and made a seasonal special called "Strawberry Dessert". We used 3 packs of さちのか strawberries!!!!We crushed, we sliced, we measured, we mixed, we whipped, we beat and finally we were almost done!!After pouring over the final layer, we placed our Strawberry Dessert into the fridge to set. The finished product was this:My personal preference is to use graham wafer crumbs for the base for this recipe, but today we used the standard recipe and used pretzels. The salty crunchy pretzel crust is a nice match for the sweet creamy middle later and the top jelly layer but, it depends what you like.Thanks to everyone who came on Saturday. I hope you try this recipe again sometime. Maybe next time with graham crackers.Have a great week!!Maya

    • アップルそぼろ??

      みなさん、こんにちは。今日はクッキングラブでApple Crispを作りました。ところでCrisp(クリスプ)と聞いてどんなイメージをもちますか?Crispは英語でだとpleasantly hard and dry (歯ごたえよくさくっとした食感のよさ)という意味になるのですが↑↑Crispの意味と似た単語でクッキーなどが「ポロポロと細かくほぐれる」という意味の単語C_ _ M_ _ Eさて何でしょうか?!今日のクッキングクラブのときに出てきました!正解は、Crumbleです!今日の生徒さんは「そぼろ!」と表現していました。たしかにボロボロする食べものってそぼろですよね。クッキングクラブとても楽しかったです。今日はお越しいただき本当にありがとうございました!!

    • The Happy Hikers- Mt. Rokko Course

      Good evening to our Readers!! I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!!The Happy Hikers met up last weekend to share our thoughts and ideas for our next hiking trip on October 4th (yesterday). As you may remember, our last hiking trip was the challenging Mt. Takatori course. This time, we decided to take it a bit easier and hike up the one and only, Mt. ROKKO.The weather forecast was looking a little doubtful all week but we were fortunate enough to get sunny/clouded skies for the day with temperatures of 23 degrees. Someone in our group is definitely a 晴れ女・晴れ男. The Happy Hikers met at 9:00am at Hankyu Rokko station. Then we took the bus and cable car up to Rokko Sanjyo station. From there, it was up to our feet to get us to our goal points.Along the path towards Diamond Point, we saw a very interesting art display. Cake and tea anyone??Then, we continued walking for about 35 minutes and reached Diamond Point at around 11:20am. Slightly cloudy, but what a nice view of Karato-dai in the North-ward!!! Hi Eiko!!!! This wonderful group photo was taken a few minutes after Maya noticed the wonderful surprise on the bottom of her shoe. LUCKY?!?Now it was time to head towards our next goal point. Along the way, we came across some neat trees. So straight and so uniform. We decided that they must be cedar trees?Soon after, we reached one of our highlights of our trip. Mikuni-iwa (三国岩), which is supposedly a power spot!! Put your hands flat on the rock and try to feel the energy entering your body. I think I felt it, but I'm not exactly sure now..... It was a nice experience though!!! Thank you H.K. for teaching us about power spots today.!! A little further down the path, we arrived at Mikuni Lake where it started to get a little chilly.We also started getting a little hungry and broke out our Trail Mix!!! Munch...Munch...Munch...Now, we were ready to go again. We walked and walked and talked and talked and I'm not sure what time it was but we finally arrived at our goal of the day- The peak of Mt. Rokko.And towards the East, we could also see Osaka. Beautiful view, but a tiny bit cold. Canadian Maya says, "Brrrrrrrrrrr......."Now, one thing I love about our Happy Hikers is their TEAMWORK!! Here are our members putting their heads together and thinking of a new route to make our way down the mountain. You guys are awesome!!!We started our descend down a rocky path called, "石切道". Very rocky and kind of tricky, but we safely made out way down. Oh, and maybe you were wondering about the English we studied today. Here is a list of a few new words that came up in conversations through out the day. chestnuta wellcedar treesmy knees are wobbly (膝が笑ってる)a mantissingle filefamily crestdawn to duskAnd, finally, we reached our final destination. ジャンジャジャジャンJob well done to all of our members!!! Another awesome hiking trip today!!! A very big thank you to our leader today, T.Y.!! You planned a fantastic course for us!! And thank you also to all of the members who joined us today, K.H, M.T, T.W, H.K, S.I, R.I !!!! And, good job, Anne! You're becoming quite the little hiker!!  Also, a big thank you to R.I. for the some really cool photos!! Today was fun and I can't wait til next time!!!If you enjoy hiking and would like to join us next time, mark your schedules for Saturday, November 22nd. That will be our next trip. Perfect timing to see the beautiful Autumn leaves!!!Thanks for reading!!!MAYA

    • The Happy Hikers Club- Mt. Takatori Course

      Hello to our Readers!!How are you today? The sunshine is out again and so far, it's been a pretty good start to the rainy season.I would like to tell you about our Happy Hikers trip yesterday through our Mt. Takatori course. Are you ready?!JUNE 7th- The weather forecast at 7:00am was cloudy and partly sunny with only a 20% chance of rain.(It must have been that special てるてる坊主power again!!) So the Happy Hiker's Club members met up at Sanyo Nishidai station at 8:30am and we were ready to tackle 3 mountains this trip!!! 1. Mt. Takatori 2. Mt. Yokooyama 3. Mt. Hatafuri/ Mt. HachibuseFirst we started our climb up Mt. Takatori. The weather was cloudy and it was very very humid. Under the trees, it was a little dark and a tiny bit slippery but the Happy Hikers successfully reached the peak where we found a Torii at the entrance of a little shrine.Here we took our first group photo.It was a slightly foggy view of the city at this time, but no worries!! The Sunshine Girls/Guys just needed a little time to warm up. After a short break, it was time to make our way over to the neighboring mountain, Mt. Yokooyama. It was a bit tricky descending, but with lots of teamwork, the Happy Hikers safely arrived at the little town of Myouhouji and fueled up on snacks and drinks at a local convenience store. Then, we started up Mt. Higashiyama. The weather at this point was very suspicious. It started sprinkling lightly but we just put on our raincoats and continued on our journey. After reaching the peak of Mt. Higashiyama, we spent a few minutes admiring the view. It almost seemed like we were in a different country!!But... We soon realized what the next step was. I have zoomed up in the center of that last photo to show you the flight of stairs going up the center of the mountain. Can you see??? That's where we had to go next!!!Have any of you heard of UMANOSE trail in the Suma Alps? I think it means "horses back"? Well, take a look at the next few pictures and maybe you will get an idea of how CHALLENGING it was. Rocks...Doesn't this look like a professional photo?!(Thanks R.I.!!!)ヤッホーWoah...That was basically rock-climbing but WOW... What a thrill!! The trail here was VERY intimidating but we all made it safely and wow, the view was breathtaking!!!! EXCELLENT TEAMWORK HAPPY HIKERS!!!!! Here's me and my daughter, Anne. Good job kiddo!!(Thanks for the nice photo K.H.!!)Shortly after, we arrived at the peak of Mt. Yokooyama and enjoyed lunch overlooking the Suma coastline. Beautiful!!! Here comes the sunshine!!!!!Next, it was time to head towards Mt. Hatafuri. We continued walking and walking. Along the way, we came to a long steep flight of stairs that just about killed me. (Thanks 'Leader' for being so patient. Lol!!) Finally we arrived at the observation deck and took in this stunning view of the coastline. Check out this panorama picture from my iphone!!! The time was now 4:00pm and our next stop would be our final destination. Happy Hikers- FIGHT!!!!! We walked and walked and finally reached our goal point at 5:15pm. Our goal point was here:And of course served with this...And now a special message to the HAPPY HIKERS membersThank you very very much for all of your teamwork!! Job well done!! And a very special thank you to our Leader, K.H.!! We couldn't have done it without you!! CHEERS!!! This trip was AWESOME and I'm looking forward to hiking again with all of you this September!! お疲れ様でした!! For those of you who couldn't join us this time, we're looking forward to seeing you in the Fall!!Thanks for reading!!MAYA
