Yesterday was the last day of class in my Nihongo Basic Intensive Course. The other day we had taken the JLPT 4 of 2006 so the morning of yesterday our teachers gave us back our results. (Yes, I passed. Flying colors in Kanji, yey heheh. But don’t ask me about listening and grammar!!! Just trust me when I say I passed heheheh.)
It was a bittersweet (Click Five moment: she’s so bittersweet, she knocks me off of my feet, and I can’t help myself I don’t want anyone else… sorry I’m just into Eric Dill right now hehehe.) day. Relieved to not be waking up so early every single day anymore, but at the same time very sad not to be thinking in Nihongo every single day anymore too…
But at least I brought my cam and saved all the good memories! Lookie:
Hirayama Sensei reacts to receiving the class’s loveletter. Hehe.
Tajima Sensei’s turn.
Look at how happy she looks hehehe. She was like that on her birthday too, when Kevin surprised her with a caricature on the board (she sadly lingered a lot before erasing heheh) and we gave her a happy birthday letter and sang her the happy birthday song.
Too bad I wasn’t able to take Fujimori Sensei’s pic! Hers would’ve been the best had I not (again, grr me, grr me) been late. I arrived in class to see our sensei in tears!! She had just received the letter and she was overwhelmed with emotion. Awww!! (She’s my favorite sensei, hehehe.)
Our mad dash to the Nihongo faculty workroom to take pics with/of our senseis.
Nihongo Basic no onna no hito desu! Hehehe. From the left, Tajima Sensei, Fujimori Sensei, Masako-san, Missy-san, Ferisha-san (‘coz of course the name “Flisha” is simply unpronounciable in Japanese hehe) and Cristina-san. Too bad Tina-san wasn’t able to make it, she was baby-sitting (not her newborn hehe).
Nihongo Basic no otoko no hito desu. Ah, is the powerful chizu only for girls??? This pic looks awkward, hehehe. I should have cropped them each and posted their pics individually. L-R: Hirayama Sensei, Kevin-san and Ronarudo-san (also known as Ronald hehehe).

Me, Missy-san and Masako-san. Missy is Filipino but sometimes looks Chinese, sometimes Korean. Hehehe. She’s very kikay (that’s Tagalog not Japanese) heheh. Masako is half-Filipino half-Japanese and always looks kawaii and she reminds me of my sister Melisse (except my sister’s kaartehan hehehe!).
Finally, the graduation ceremony! Tan-tan-tanan… Okay I’m supposed to be humming the traditional graduation hymn but um it kinda morphed into the Star Wars theme! Hehehehe my brain needs to defragment I think.
Some silly after-pics.
Oh, oh, and here’s my certificate!
And a loveletter from the senseis hehehe.
Afterwards we sang our hearts out at Red Box, a videoke place at Trinoma. It was a lotta fun (though I kinda went “huuuhh?? e?” when they started singing Japanese-only songs hehehe). I’ll post the videos maybe tomorrow. ;-)
