There's a pageant of which the final round will take place next month in Kyoto. I would've thought Aiko is quite likely to enter the final. My friend said "My bet is Fumi will enter the final" My friend Alex has accepted a commission to compose a waltz for the pageant because one of the contestants will be showcasing her waltz dance which we all can't wait to see. I should like to extend my congratulations to him for having received a commission for a waltz from the pageant since it's a rare opportunity. I also would like to express my heartfelt congratulations to my friend Kawai on progressing through the preliminary round. She's a contestant in the beauty contest and I won't be surprised if she progresses through the semifinal. I went on holiday in Tokyo last summer which lived up to my expectation. My brother also went to Tokyo on vacation for Easter which came up to his expectation. My sister holidayed in Sydney over the Christmas holiday last year which failed to live up to her expectation. I love Japanese culture and food. I took the JLPT test at N one level in Tokyo. My listening far outshines my speaking so the marks I lost in speaking were offset by those I gained in listening. My friend Amy too took the test. She's a little weak in reading but strong in writing so the marks she gained in the writing section offset those she lost in the reading part. After the test we spent money on clothes and shoes like it was going out of fashion. We went to the casino and gambled like it was going out of fashion. If you enjoy being in Japan you might spend money on food and cosmetic products like it's going out of fashion. If you enter the casino you might gamble like it's going out of fashion like we did lol. My Japanese friend Rika has been invited to a marathon next month but she may be out of condition for it. Her grandfather was granted asylum during the second world war. Her cousins Tom and Jerry have been accused of robbery lately. If convicted they would be jailed for two years. The judge granted bail to Tom but refused to grant Jerry bail. Tom's parents have agreed to post bail for Tom who's now released on bail of forty four thousand dollars whereas Jerry is remanded in custody for twelve days. Rika's maid has been stealing jewellery from her. After an investigation she said "She's been stealing jewelry. I'll grant you that" Rika's best friend will be coming to Japan so she will have her around for a few nights. I said "having your best friend over for a few nights is fair enough but you should let your family know before having her around" My brother too said "I grant that it's very kind of you to have her over but you should let your family know beforehand" Rika has bought a front row ticket for the NBA All-Star game which was very hard to get. I said "Fair enough. It's difficult to get a front row ticket but you should ask your boss if you could get a few days off as you'll need to fly to America for it" She was too excited lol.
