Green Campus


My first week in the UK has passed. I found a photo in my album, which is a view of Amsterdam from my flight before its landing last Saturday. In the future, I would like to visit Amsterdam and stay for a few days in the summer.

The university campus here is very abundant with greenery and rabbits; you can find so many rabbits on campus. I already explored the extensive premises, and I’ve found supermarkets, a bank, a post office, a medical centre, bookshops and cafes. To be honest, it was unexpected for me to have such a comfortable life here. I wear a shirt, trousers and trainers every day, and just studying.

My class starts at 9 am, and I have lunch at 11.30 and another class till 3 pm. After the class, I normally do my laundry and talk with friends while having coffee, and we do assignments till 10 pm. I go to bed 11 pm and wake up 6 am.

Two days remaining

My packing is done. I kept my belongings to a minimum to get a chance to go shopping in the UK. Books for my research and favourite pens are essentials in my suitcase.

I have two days before leaving, but I’m still busy with work to leave notes about my job, tidy up and clean rooms. Also, I am already missing my home while working in my office, so trying not to look back on the past.

Big prize


Armani Ristorante held the Champagne Perrier-Jouet event last Sunday afternoon, in which Perrier-Jouet Brut, Rose and Belle Epoque 1999 was served with a three-course lunch. Nanami and I attended the event.

After the lunch, the executives of Perrier-Jouet held an unexpected lottery. All menu cards placed on the seats for all attendees were numbered for the lottery. My number was 48. The small prize was a wine glass, and the big prize was a bottle of champagne. My number was called and I won a bottle of champagne Brut! Nanami screamed with delight and I jumped for joy! Perrier-Jouet has a very sophisticated taste and it is absolutely high quality. We were very lucky to win the big prize!
