The story is about a young man Yamashita Koutaro was forced to live under one roof with a 6 years old girl, Sakurai Ann. Can you imagine what kind of situation could it be for a man who never take care of kids needs to play a role as a young father ??
It started with Hinako, Koutaro's elder sister who is a famous movie star in Japan left her daughter for Koutaro w/o informing him (what an irresponsible act... ) . Koutaro is 24, he is working as a part-timer journalist and at the same time working his way towards his dream - to become a novelist. A bachelor's lifestyle totally went wrong when Ann-chan came in to his life...
It may not be so bad at all by just living with a child, however the worst thing is the child is celebrity. She earns more than him, and of course spend more than he can ever imagine .. despite the high expenses, Koutaro needs to follow a set of guidance on taking care of young Ann-chan such as maintaining the ambient moisture , prepare the breakfast which is well bake raisin bread cut in to 28mm each slice precisely, taking care of her dog in an apartment which does not allow any pet .. etc..
It sounds like a comedy, but as you watch the drama you will feel the sense of warmth and love between Koutaro and Ann-chan. You will be inspired on raising a child, understand more deeply about children feelings as well as the parents'. Well , I'm not really a 100% family oriented person, but I enjoy this drama very much.
The theme song 時の足音 from Kobukuro (コブクロ) indeed is a very nice song. I like the lyrics whereby it describes human relationship as the minute hand and hour hand of a clock. Too bad that I couldn't find the English translation for the lyrics. You can click on the player in the music corner to listen to this song or simply click here for the PV.
so the data collected = rubbish ... the device was damaged .. how am I going to collect the next set of data for a different test condition ... ?????!!!!! @#$$@$%$%^@@%#%$^$%$%$#$##%^$$%&^#@$

Tanaka Kikinzoku Jewelry K.K. on Friday unveiled before the media a 150 million yen Christmas tree made entirely of pure gold and decorated with diamond, platinum and pearl accessories at its store in Osaka's Shinsaibashi shopping district.
Four filigree artists spent three months to fashion the tree, which looks like a golden fir, stands 1.5 meters tall and weighs 21 kilograms. Its five tiers of branches resemble lampshades.
"The holiday season this year may be less festive around the world (due to the economic downturn)," said store manager Mamoru Mashiko. "Still, we want people to brighten up at Christmastime by looking at this golden tree."
The tree will be on display on the first floor of the shop from 29th Nov through Christmas day.
Here comes the best part, the pantry ... I would say ... Wow!! twice the size of the pantry in the old building ... it should have been a good sign.. however there is only one basin .. yes you got it right... just one basin for the pantry which is so large and people actually needs to queue up to wash their mugs or bottles .. etc. Back to the old building we have 2 per pantry.
I do like the Samsung refrigerator ... here is my colleague who enjoy so much with the new refrigerator .. (sorry for the poor pic editing .. I did it with mspaint not ps)
Next, the toilet. Well there are 2 toilet for the whole floor... they are located at the far end of the building. You have to walk ~20 to 40 meters to get to your toilet.. If the janitor is cleaning the toilet you have to walk >100 meters to go the next one ... and this brought to my concern .. what if both toilet are in the progress of cleaning?? You have to walk x meters again to the next floor...
The lab .. err ... all I can say is hopefully it will get better when the lab is fully moved over to the new building. There are some components that we need are still stored at the old lab .. and the technician can only support us for half a day and the other half for the old lab users. I like the new bench because it is spacious, I do not have to squeeze all my stuff to a single bench ..
Alright.. enough babbling here... have a look at my new cubical (^.^). I did some changes in the decorations, basically the rest are the same as the old cubical (besides no more junk for now .. hehehe )

I know its messy .. yes I know ...
So starting from the shelf... errr. ... empty Spritzer Pop bottles , empty chocolate box, empty Pringgles container.. lol ... basically.. all junks..
Posters + lyrics ( from Kobukuro) , some junk notes which I wrote for fun...
hehehe... can towers, Ribena, plastic containers ... lol.. I wonder why I would keep all these stuff here ..
and the towers were demolished due to violation in the construction rules and regulation and definitely violating the OSHA ... lol
Collections of key chain from my frenz ... and of coz .. the poring doll which has been with me for around 5 years ....
Alright... now finally its clean ... looking forward to my new cubical tomorrow...
別れの 季節に揺れる 儚き 一輪花
同じ温もりの風を 誰もが 探して 歩いてる
出会いは 空に流れる おぼろ雲の下で
ゆっくりと (ゆっくりと) ゆっくりと
大丈夫 また同じ場所から 始められるから
色んな 種をもらった 言葉が 心に 水をやる
心の奥に集めた種は どんな 光で 育つのだろう
誰のためでも ないよと輝く 君に照らされてる
出会いが 道を作る この道にまた 想いを 刻む
誰もが 一人 一つ 一瞬 一秒 一度きり 巻き戻せない時を
一人 一つ 一瞬 一秒 一度きり

WTH ... a book teaches you how to commit suicide !!! This is madness yet people actually follows the content of the book and committed suicide .... Copies of this book were found in Japan's famous spot for suicide "Aokigahara Jukai" / (青木ヶ原樹海) According to some readers' reviews, the book also stated the highest probability or chances of a perfect suicide (100% succeed) and the lower probability as well ...
There will be decorations seen everywhere when coming to a festive season .. well this month would be Christmas ... So today I found this Jack Skelington sitting at one folk's cube in my office ... Guess what ?? This 1 is exactly same as mine... the only different is mine is sitting on a Ferrari F40 and his/hers is having a santa hat on it ...
Here is mine ...
And here is the cute santa version of Jack Skellington ~~~
It is sooo cute .. (^.^)
May be I need to get mine a santa hat as well ... anyway .. Merry Christmas .. ho~ ho~ ho ~

Means something that is not special but very important. I've thinking whether if there is such thing exist in my life ? I couldn't get the answer ... If there is something that is important, of course it is something special that makes it important to us.
Possible answers that i can think of : air, water, sun (booooring ~~).... money (wth), family ( noway !! they are special ) ... friends ( nah ~~ not really ) ....
