Osaka Renaissance




Yesterday night as I left the office I rushed and got on the train to Osaka station. Then I went to Yodoyabashi station to have a glance at the illuminations around the city hall. I had only 20 minutes to enjoy the show (which was really short) but I really wanted to enjoy it even though I couldn`t see the whole thing (the lights are turned off by 10). I was pretty happy and it was not crowded like it can be on weekends so it was even mooore enjoyable! Next year I will try to go again and spend more time if possible!

Shhhhhhhh.....ushi

Its vs It's

"Its going to be sunny tomorrow."

This is INCORRECT.

It’s is the contraction of It is:

* "It’s going to be sunny tomorrow."

This is CORRECT.

"What’s that? I can’t remember it’s name."

This is INCORRECT.

Its is a possessive pronoun that modifies a noun:

* "What’s that? I can’t remember its name."

This is CORRECT.

Kobe & Luminarie


Last Saturday night I went to Kobe to see the Christmas illuminations. I expected a lot of people. There were lots of people. I expected to queue for hours. Idid wait but it was not as terrible as I had imagined! I really had the worst scenario in mind and it was not that bad at all. The hardest part was the wind. Oooohh! the wind!!! But as soon as the the illuminated arcade appeared in front of me, I just forgot about it. Plus, I didn`t know there were other illuminated spots. I thought it was the arcade was all there was to see! Therefore I was even more excited and overjoyed when I saw the arena kind of thing and the other lightnings. Had a fantastic time!!!
I will try to have a look at the Renaissance Christmas illuminations in Osaka before I leave. Not sure I can make it but I will try!!
Have been there already or are you planning to???

Pink Floyd could do with some grammar tips...

Double negative

"I'm not speaking to nobody in this class."

This is INCORRECT.

Since 'not' is a negative, you cannot use 'nobody' in this sentence:

* "I'm not speaking to anybody in this class."

This is CORRECT.
