Fish Tank Cleaning Tool

thread
Fish Tank Cleaning Tool
I found this interesting item in a 100yen store (although it cost 200yen). It`s a 2-piece magnetic tool for cleaning the inside of a fish tank, so you don`t have to put your hand inside the tank. Pretty clever! And pretty effective, as you can see.

Vocabulary:

DIY Fish Viewer

thread
DIY Fish Viewer

I made a fish-viewing box from a sheet of clear perspex (クリアアクリル), which I bought at a hardware store (about ¥200 for A3 size). To bend it, I used a blow torch. Next I used a glue gun to attach the side pieces. Finally I tested it using my pet loach (どじょう ).

I`m looking forward to using it with tropical fish when I visit Miyakojima. Please check my blog next week to see what I caught!

Grammar:
- To 動詞... I 動詞... = I 動詞... to 動詞...
- To 動詞...please 動詞... = Please 動詞... to 動詞...

Strange Sea Creatures

thread
Strange Sea Creatures
Walking along the beach in Wakasa at about 4:30pm, I was getting a bit cold, so I was surprised to see so many surfers in the cold water. They must love surfing.

Speaking of strange sea creatures, I found an unusual shell, about 15cm long, on the beach. When I got home I researched it. It`s from a kind of octopus called a paper nautilus. It`s the first time I`ve seen this kind of shell.

Vocabulary
- Speaking of ___ = ___ と言えば

Brave鳩? No, Brave Sparrow!

thread
Brave鳩? No, Bra...
The title is a joke - brave = 勇ましい, & 'Brave鳩' sounds like 'Braveheart' the movie. Do you know it? But this bird isn`t a pigeon (鳩). It`s a sparrow. Do you understand? Is it a funny joke? No? A little? No? Ah...

Anyway, I was having lunch in the park today, & this sparrow came closer & closer, & finally jumped on my leg. I was surprised. I don`t usually feed birds, but I gave this brave sparrow some of my lunch.

Language Use:
- If you are chatting & want to change the subject [話題を変えたい時、仕切り直したい時] because it becomes boring, confusing, uncomfortable, or irrelevant (見当違い) use "Anyway..." & start a new subject.

Zoo Trip

thread
Zoo Trip
On Sunday, school staff & students visited Higashiyama zoo in Nagoya. It was a nice day - a little cloudy so not hot. The 6 girls in my group were well-behaved & enjoyed looking at the animals & hearing my interesting animal facts e.g. that hippos are the most dangerous African animal (did you know that?). The most popular animals seemed to be the koalas - it was a little crowded there.

Vocabulary:
Be careful: cloudy = 曇り crowded = 込んでいる
