At first, I was amazed and happy to hear about the news. But there seem a lot of problems concerning this medical treatment. (1) Screening failure; she isn't fit to bear octuplet for psychological, financial reasons etc. (2) Malpractice; too risky and babies may have had a good chance of some kind of disability. (3) Cost; raising kids cost huge amount of money. (4) No regulation for fertility treatment. Anderson pointed out how media report on this news, which I thought is a really important issue.

Anyway, I have been devoted to practicing the piano for the past one month. I am going to join YouTube Symphony project! They distribute a music score for various musical instruments and collect music videos performed by musician all around the world. They will put them together and make one piece of music. Sounds really exciting to me!
Usually, I spend non-working time on 360 related things. Instead, I spent most of my time practicing the piano, or listening to the music so I could memorize. Of course, I have been pretty busy with my real work, too. I didn't think I had enough time for the piano practice and I am not 100% satisfied with my performance, but still this was the best I could do.
Beethoven: Piano Sonata No. 21 "Waldstein"
Why played the piano in kimono? I read that "they need international videos," and thought I should wear traditional clothes. I hope it will cath their eyes. I know my performance is not as good as other pianists, but if they like it, I might be invited to Carnegie Hall!
It was really fortunate that I have a kimono. Japanese girls usually make our own kimono when we reach the age 20. But kimono costs a lot and these days it is getting popular to rent one and just take a picture of ourselves in it. I am really thankful that my parents buy one for me.
I'll show you some photos of me wearing my kimono.
Now that I am almost finished with this project, I hope I'll be back on blogging next week!

Too bad I couldn't have any pictures of Andergiggles. Everytime he showed adorable smiles, caption blocked some part of his beautiful face....
I agree some part of their belief. Drugs subscribed by doctors are not always good. Personally, I don't like relying on medicines. Especially, drugs doctors gives us are stronger than those sold at drug stores. But sometimes we do need ones. Why can't they be flexible? When you believe something blindlly, you might miss something important.
How funny! Anderson tries to look as serious as the real presidential debate!

In Japan, we send New Year's card to many friends, coworkers, or just to anyone they know. We post them around December 25 and post office keep them until January 1st. Then we get all the New Year's card on the morning of the 1st. Here's one of the card that I made for New Year's card.
Again, I wish all of you a very happy new year!
