Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes

Since i decide to get Japan i decide to get one of the 2 places where the atom bombs was dropped
I picked Hiroshima just becouse it was more close to Kyoto  where i was staying so i thought to get Nagasaki for my Next Visiti in japan .Since I got .....Pace Memorial Park  a weird feeling of sadness keeps coming over me ........till i Saw those: .......a warm touch of Love, Hope & Pace .
Those Origami Cranes are Made by school children all over japan and from all over the world .

Meaning  About Thousand origami cranes 千羽鶴 Senbadsuru is a group of one thousand origami paper cranes held together by strings. An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury. The crane in Japan is one of the mystical or holy creatures (others include the dragon and the tortoise), and is said to live for a thousand years. In Japan, it is commonly said that folding 1000 paper origami cranes makes a person's wish come true. This makes them popular gifts for special friends and family.

But There s something more About this Place and  千羽鶴 Senbadsuru ,and to be honest I didn t know about it till now but my deep love for  this Country and its culture made me always read and search about it so i discovered  it : It s  The Story About All This Thousand Origami & Sadako Sasaki.



 Sasaki Sadako  佐々木 禎子 January 7, 1943 – October 25, 1955) was a Japanese girl who was two years old when the atomic bomb was dropped on August 6, 1945, near her home by Misasa Bridge in Hiroshima, Japan. Sadako is remembered through the story of attempting to fold a thousand origami cranes before her death, a wish which was memorialized in popular culture.


Sadako was at home when the explosion occurred, about one mile from Ground Zero. In November 1954, Sadako developed swellings on her neck and behind her ears. In January 1955, purple spots had formed on her legs. Subsequently, she was diagnosed with leukemia (her mother referred to it as "an atom bomb disease").She was hospitalized on February 21, 1955, and given, at the most, a year to live.



On August 3, 1955, Sadako's best friend Chizuko Hamamoto came to the hospital to visit and cut a golden piece of paper into a square to fold it into a paper crane, in reference to the ancient Japanese story that promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane. A popular version of the story is that Sadako fell short of her goal of folding 1,000 cranes, having folded only 644 before her death, and that her friends completed the 1,000 and buried them all with her. This comes from the book Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes. An exhibit which appeared in the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum stated that by the end of August, 1955, Sadako had achieved her goal and continued to fold more cranes.


Though she had plenty of free time during her days in the hospital to fold the cranes, she lacked paper. She would use medicine wrappings and whatever else she could scrounge up. This included going to other patients' rooms to ask to use the paper from their get-well presents. Chizuko would bring paper from school for Sadako to use.


During her time in the hospital her condition progressively worsened. Around mid-October her left leg became swollen and turned purple. After her family urged her to eat something, Sadako requested tea on rice and remarked "It's good." Those were her last words. With her family around her, Sadako died on the morning of October 25, 1955 at the age of 12.

akachōchin 。。。 Izakaya 居酒屋

Some traditional lighting u can find in japan are called akachōchin  赤ちょうちん it marks an Izakaya .


Izakaya 居酒屋  is a type of Japanese drinking establishment which also serves food to accompany the drinks. They are popular, casual places for after-work drinking.

The name "izakaya" is a compound word consisting of "i" (to sit) and "sakaya" (sake shop), showing that izakaya originate from sake shops that allowed customers to sit at the premises to drink.

Izakaya are sometimes called akachōchin  赤ちょうちん(red lantern) in daily conversation, because these paper lanterns are traditionally found in front of an izakaya.

Here 's Some Pictures i took in japan .......and of course i bought one ^_^ in kappabashi Street .

カステラ Mattcha Green Tea Kasutera Or Castella

Finally I made カステラ  ^^  mogu mogu mogu!!


カステラ, Kasutera  or Castella is a popular Japanese sponge cake made of sugar, flour, eggs, and starch syrup, very common at festivals and as a street food.

Now a specialty of Nagasaki, the cake was brought by way of Portuguese merchants in the 16th century. The name is derived from Portuguese Pão de Castela, meaning "bread from Castile".
In the 16th century, the Portuguese reached Japan, and soon started trade and missionary work. Nagasaki was then the only Japanese port open for foreign commerce. The Portuguese introduced many then-unusual things, such as guns, tobacco, and pumpkins and castella. It was able to be preserved for a long period of time, and so was useful for the sailors who were out on the sea for months. In the Edo Period, in part due to the cost of sugar, it was an expensive dessert. When the Emperor of Japan's envoy was invited, the Tokugawa Shogunate presented the Castella.

The Boy in The Striped Pyjama.......Jhon Boyne & Movie

I Really  enjoyed  the Book.....
after watched the movie i could get  that  soo many things have been missed  ; this  make the book  Much Much  better (some time Sad and funny at the same time ) and special about this story


 This is how Bruno describe ........The Fury ( Führer)
that s how a child s eyes saw him (awesome) in  the book .....The fury doesn t appear in the movie :(

The fury was far shorter then father ..and not bruno supposes quiet as strong .He had dark hair, which was cut  quite short and a tiny moustace .....Soo tiny in fact that bruno wondered why he bothered with it at all or whether he had simply forgotten a piece when he was shaving.......


This is my favourite part
(Eva  enjoys the dinner in bruno s house with the fury ) and when  he got the dining room and sat dawn ....
he shouted : EVA!!! clicking his Figers as if she were some sort of puppy Dog (ahahahhahaahahahaa)

I Also watched the movie and there r soo many differences like this ....that i really loved reading the book  and i didn t get in the movie Suckkkkkk

The relashionship with his sister Gretel.....The Hopeless Case (lol)
Bruno didn t like to admit that he was a little scared of her ....she had some nastry habits....she had a large collection of dolls on slelves around her room that stared at  bruno when he went inside and followed him around watching whatever he did he was sure that if he went exploring in her room when she was out of the house they would report back to her on everything he did .......she had some very unpleasant friends too...

The aircut ......on the movie Bruno doesn t get any cut hair ....
-Book-- Bruno get Gretel s room ........bruno was interrupted by the sound og greetel breacking onto a piercing scream ;  ''One that woke up mother up from her afteernoon nap and brought her running into the bedroom to find out  which of her children had mordered the other one''  LOL
While experimenting with her  hair gretel has found a tiny egg ...it turned out that both had to be treated with a special shampoo that smelled horrible.....but then father decided that the best thing was for him to start afresh and he got a razor and shaved all bruno s hair off wich made bruno cry .....but when he saw himself in the mirror bruno thinks how much like shmuel he looked now and he wondered whether all the people on theat side on the fence had lice as well and that was wht all theyr heads were shaved too
when he saw his friend the  next day shmuel staryted to laught at bruno s appearence......
'' I look just like u now ''said bruno.........
'' only fatter ''admitted shmuel

The best thing  missed


THE HUG
 After got inside the fence Bruno had an urge  to give shmuel a huge, just to let him know how much he liked him and how much he 'd enjoyed talking to him over the lat year
Shmuel had a urge to give Bruno a huge too just to thank him for all his many kindnesses and his gift of food and the fact to help him to find papa .

THE END

'' YOU ARE MY BEST FIREND'' MY BEST FOR LIFE''....AND THEN THE ROOM WENT DARK ...BRUNO WAS STILL HOLDING SHMUEL 'S HAND IN HIS OWN AND NOTHING IN THE WORLD WOULD HAVE PERSUADED HiM TO '' LET IT GO .♥ ''

Starbucks has announced a new super-size coffee cup

How much caffeine can one person take? Starbucks unveils the 1.5 PINT Trenta coffee cup


By Daniel Bates In New York 17th January 2011

Super sized: The new 31oz Trenta cup will be available in the U.S. from May - but it's not coming to Britain because there isn't the demand for it
If one cup is never enough, it will be music to your ears.
 which is more than one-and-a-half pints of coffee.
The super size 31oz serving is nearly a quarter of a gallon of the black stuff. An imperial pint is a comparatively small 20oz, while its American equivalent is 16oz.
And the Trenta will be 8fl oz larger than the Venti cup for drinks, which currently is its largest size on offer.
Seattle-based Starbucks tested the new extra large size in several U.S. cities last year, and said it was responding to customer demand for larger cold beverages.
But the Trenta will not be introduced in the UK where customers seem content with the current range on offer, the company said.
Starbucks currently offers four sizes for its drinks: the 8oz Short, the 12oz Tall, the 16oz Grande and the Venti which is 20oz in the UK and 22oz in the U.S.
The coffee company was unable to say how much caffeine would be in the super size cup, but given the Trenta has around 300mg when filled with an iced beverage, customers will probably only need that one cup to keep them awake most of the day - and half the night.
The new venture from Starbucks is part of the firm’s attempt to move beyond being a basic coffee chain.

JAMIE OLIVER .......HE S GONNA SAVE THIS WORLD!!!!

Authorities don't want him promoting his healthy eating campaign

He has been banned from every single school in LA but Jamie Oliver won’t let that get in the way of mission to change the eating habits of people in America.
And although his healthy eating scheme may be facing opposition he managed to attract a crowd as he opened Jamie’s Kitchen in Westwood California earlier this week.

Jamie,35, invited the residents of Los Angeles to his kitchen to learn more about his mission, where he hopes to change the perceptions and the diets of the people across the state.
But his mission was nearly over before it had properly began and he has been banned from every school in the state.

He told People magazine: ‘Currently, the L.A. School District won’t let me near a single school, but we’re going to try to get around that.’
‘Really, my job is trying to inspire people to educate people, but also get them to have clearer opinions about stuff, and stir up a little bit of trouble where some of the bag guys are getting away with murder.’





His work in L.A. builds on the first series of ABC’s Food Revolution, which won an Emmy award for managing to overhaul the school meals served in Huntington, the town dubbed America’s unhealthiest city.

But his mission has been halted by Los Angeles Unified Schools District (LAUSD) who have refused to let him into schools, leaving Jamie hoping he can get parents on board.
‘Reality TV has a formula,’ Robert Alaniz, L.A. Unified spokesman, told the LA Times, ’you either have to have drama or create conflict to be successful. We're not interested in either.’


At the moment Jamie’s Kitchen will aim to provide information, support and cooking classes for parents in the area as well as rally around to get his mission across and he is hoping, allow him access to just one school in the area.

The temporary kitchen will also serve as a television studio but he admits there is only so much he can do from there, he told reporters from LA Weekly: ‘If the cameras don’t see it (unhealthy eating in schools) the public don’t see it. That’s my problem.’
But judging by the queue outside Jamie’s Kitchen earlier in the week, which snaked around the corner of the building all hope isn’t lost and the chef seems to have some following in the area.


The food campaigner mingled with the people in the queue and chatted to a number of people before entering the building.

There he donned his chef’s apron and spoke to the attendees about his vision for their town.
Later Jamie was seen filming parts of his show with him talking to members of the crowd.
After the opening Jamie posted a plea to parents on his facebook page asking them to write to LAUSD board members within the next 24 hours to appeal their decision.
But two days later the page had just 17 likes and just 18 posts saying they had complied with his requests.

Warrior of Light ........

Dal libro di Paulo Coelho '' Manual of a Warrior of Light ''AWESOME!!!
Non lontano dalla spiaggia a west di un villaggio un ragazzo incontra una donna
qsta gli chiede se avesse mai visitato il templio sull isola
il ragazzo rispose di no
cosi disse al ragazzo:
Vai e dimmi cosa ne pensi ???
il ragazzo si sedette lungo la spiaggia guardando l orizonte ma l unica cosa ke riusciva a vedere era l orizonte il cielo blu e l oceano
allora si avvicinò ad un pescatore e gli kiese se lui avessse mai sentito parlare di quell  isola e di quel templio;
l uomo rispose ke tanto ma tanto tempo fa un terremoto aveva sommerso l isola portando il templio cn se ma ke nonostatne cio si potevano ancora sentire le campane di quel templio
il ragazzo torno cosi alla spiaggia cercando di sentire il suono delle campane ma l unica cosa ke riusciva a sentire erano le onde del mare e i gabbiani ;
cosi torno il giorno dopo pensando amareggiato alle bugie ke la donna le avea detto e kiedendosi il perke ma senza avere una risposta!!
 Il ragazzo ogni giorno andava su qlla spiaggia  cercando di sentire qlle campane
credeva ke se le avesse sentite sarebbe potuto scendere giù in fondo al mare e trovare un tesoro.
I mesi passarono e il ragazzo perse interesso per tutto cio ke lo circondava la scuola i gioki stava perdendo la sua infanzia  ;  i suoi compagni di scuola lo deridevano dicendo ke aveva solo paura di giocare cn loro xk nn sarebeb stato alla loro altezza.ma alui poco importava !!
6 mesi dopo il ragazzo pur andando alla spiaggia tuttii i giorni continuava a nn sentire nessun suono cosi il pescatore gli dissse ke tutti  loro riuscivano a sentire le campane;  ma forse solo perke loro erano pescatori .
Il ragazzo decise allora ke se cosi era lui sarebbe diventato un pescatore cosi un giorno avrebbe potuto sentire il suono delle campane di quel templio .
La sera seguente tornò su qlla spiaggia e salutò perl ultima volta  l'oceano riuscendo come sempre a sentire il suono delle ode del mare i gabbiani e il  fruscio del vento  tra le palme degli alberi ke lo circondavano .
Il ragazzo torno alla sua infanzia fatta di giochi e tutto ciò che un ragazzo può avere alla sua età ed era felice xk era tornato a vivere cm un ragazzino dovrebbe fare.
Gli anni passarono e il ragazzo divenne un uomo ,un giorno decise di tornare sulla spiaggia di quel villaggio dove aveva speso motlo tempo della sua infanzia e mentre camminava su quella spiaggia rivide qlla donna ke tanto tempo fa le aveva parlato di quel tempio e di qlle campane e le chiese :
cosa fai qui??
 lei rispose:
ti stavo aspettando !!
la donna era sempre la stessa nonostante  fossero passati tanti anni .
la donna teneva  tra le mani un quaderno  di pagine bianche e mostrandolo al ragazzo gli disse
scrivi :
A WARRIOR OF LIGHT '' valorizza gi occhi di un bambino perke sono in grado di vedere il modo senza amarezze ; qndo vuole capire se la persona accanto merita la sua  fiducia  lui prova a guardarlo come farebbe un bambino !!
cos ' è un Warrior of light ti kiederai ??le disse la donna ; lo sai  già continuò sorridendo
UN GUERRIERO   è colui  capace di capire il  miracolo della vita , di lottare fino ala fine per qlkosa in cui crede - e..... di sentire il suono delle campane ke le onde dell oceano suonano in fondo al  mare!!
Ognuno di noi  è capace di tutto ciò   ma nessuno è capace di vedere se stesso come un guerriero un warrior of light ..........'' we all are...tutti lo siamo
allora la donna porgendole il quaderno disse al ragazzo
Adesso scrivi di qsto guerriero !!!!

A warrior of light sa ke ha molto di cui essere grato ;ecco  perchè al tramonto inginocchiandosi ringrazia per il mantello di protezione ke lo avvolge !!

THE  WARRIOR SA CHE è LIBERO DI SCEGLIERE I SUOI DESIDERI E PRENDE  LE SUE DECISIONI CON CORAGGIO, DISTACCO E ALLE VOLTE CON UN TOCCO DI FOLLIA!!
INOLTRE RIESCE A DISTINGUERE TRA QLCOSA DI TRANSITORIO E QUALCOSA DUREVOLE!!

A WARRIOR UTILIZZA L ENERGIA DEI SUOI OPPONENTI .......
ENTUSIASMO E TRAINING NONO SONO SUFFICIENTI ciò KE CONTA è L ESPERIENZA!!!

A WARRIOR SAYS: NON CONTA VINCERE O PERDERE UNA SINGOLA BATTAGLIA CIò KE CONTA è  COME LA GUERRA FINISCE!!
IN GUERRA LA CHIAVE DELLA VITTORIA è  L ABILITà NEL SORPRENDERE
 L AVVERSARIO !!

A WARRIOR SAYS : HO CONOSCIUTO MOLTE PERSONE E ALLA PRIMA OCCASIONE CERCANO DI MOSTRARE LE LORO QUALITA .....LE PEGGIORI ...NASCONDONO IL LORO ESSERE DIETRO L AGGRESSIVITà , NASCONDONO LA LORO SOLITUDINE DIETRO L' INDIPENDENZA ,NON CREDONO NELLE LORO ABILITà E CERCANO DI MOSTRARE SOLO LE LORO VIRTù  COSI A WARRIOR UTILIZZA OGNI OCCASIONE PER CORREGEERE SE STESSO  IN QNTO LE PERSONE SONO UN ECCELLENTE SPECCHIO  E A WARRIOR SFRUTTA OGNI OPPORTUNITA PER IMPARARE QLKOSA !!

A WARRIOR SA CHE HA MPARATO QUALCOSA DA OGNI SINGOLA BATTAGLIA X LA QUALE HA LOTTATO ANCHE SE MOLTE LEZIONI HANNO CAUSATO UNA SOFFERENZA NON NECESSARIA .HA SOFFERTO PER PERSONE CHE NON MERITAVANO IL SUO AMORE .

VICTORS NEVER MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE TWICE !THAT  IS WHY THE WARRIOR ONLY RISK HIS HEART FOR SOMETHING WORTHWHILE!!!

I VINCENTI  NON FANNO LO STESSO ERRORE DUE VOLTE !! ECCO PERCHè A WARRIOR RISCHIA IL SUO CUORE SOLO PER QUALCOSA  CHE MERITA!!

A WARRIOR SAYS : PERSEVERANZA NON HA LO STESSO SIGNIFICATO DI INSISTENZA!!

A WARRIOR SI TROVA SPESSO A FRONTEGGIARE GLI STESSI PROBLEMI E LE STESSE SITUAZIONI  E SI SCORAGGIA PERCHE PENSA CHE NON HA FATTO PROGRESSI NELLA SUA VITA MA IL SUO CUORE RISPONDE:
YES TI SEI TROVATO NELLA STESSA SITUAZIONE PRIMA MA DENTRO NON ACCANTO AD ESSA .
QSTO GLI INSEGNA CHE CIò  è SOLO QUELLO CHE  NON VUOLE IMPARE !!

 A WARRIOR NON TRASCORRE I SUOI GIORNI CERCANDO DI GIOCARE NEL RUOLO CHE  GLI ALTRI HANNO SCELTO PER LUI !!

A WARRIOR HA SEMPRE UNA CERTA LUCE NEGLI OCCHI!!
NON SEMPRE  PRENDE LE GIUSTE DECISIONI
SOFFRE PER COSE BANALI  ALLE VOLTE CREDE DI ESSERE INCAPACE DI AFFRONTARE TUTTO , SPESSO SI SENTE  '' NON BENEDETTO'' ;
NON SEMPRE SA COSA STA FACENDO , PASSA MOLTE NOTTI INSONNI CREDENDO KE LA SUA VITA NON ABBIA  NESSUN SENSO ..............ECCO PERCHè è  A WARRIOR OF LIGHT
PERCHE COMMETTE ERRORI , XK SI PONE DELLE DOMANDE
PERCHE CERCA UNA MOTIVAZIONE ED è SICURO CHE LA TROVERà!!


PER UN WARRIOR NON C'è '' MIGLIORE O '' PEGGIORE'' OGNUNO  HA I SUOI DONI PER UN DETERMINATO PERCORSO .
NON SPRECA IL SUO TEMPO ASCOLTANDO LE  PROVOCAZIONI  DEGLI ALTRI ,,,,HA UN DESTINO DA REALIZZARE!!

A WARRIORS NON RINNEGA LE DURE BATTAGLIE  COMBATTUTE , SI PORTA DIETRO LE CICATRICI  E I SEGNI DELLE BATTAGLIE , LORO SONO LA TESTIMONIANZA DELLE SUE SOFFERENZE E DELLE RICOMPENSE CHE HA OTTENUTO.

SEGNI E CICATRICI APRONO LA PORTA DEL PARADISO!!!


A WARRIOR SAYS :C' è STATO UN TEMPO IN CUI  VIVEVO PERCHè AVEVO BISOGNO DI VIVERE . MA ADESSO VIVO PERCHè SONO UN GUERRIERO E PERCHE DESIDERO UN GIORNO DI ESSERE NELLA COMPAGIA DEI GUERRIERI CHE HANNO LOTTATO DURO!!!
