~Dream match~* @ the Australian Open~! just minutes away~* ー(* ̄O ̄)ノ !

It's amazing that these two fierce competitors have never crossed paths in a major grand slam final~*!..and while I'm an avid watcher…sometimes "player" ー(* ̄O ̄)ノ 。。of tennis♥ it's one major statistic that I've never realized.

Serena vs. Justine.

Like in other sports you only need hear first names..as these athletes' accomplishments and importance to their respective sports far exceed the need for any additional syllables~ ^ ^。

Wonderful stories on both sides as Serena looks to continue her dominance in perhaps one of her most tested grand slams yet~ while the most most welcome~♥ back appearance of Justine who the game so has missed recently (we soooo need much more all court players~♥ and with her petite size omg okay~* I'm biased (*´艸`)!!I'm sooo tiny too so a~h…..well okay…….um……..in a "word" Justine is: o(*´∀`)o゛♥♥♥. Now that that's out of the way….(。ーωー。)。。Kim Clisters was so amazing~* with her win last year in a major with it being just her third tournament back after a lengthy absence…..so on the eve here too, one mighty little Justine is also on the very verge of such an accomplishment…perhaps even more remarkable being that the Australian Open marks just her second tournament back after her premature (;´□`)。。exit from the women's game while at #1~.
 
~And for anyone who loves tennis♥ we all so live an die by each and every point~! \(^o^)/☆ / (・д・`*)~!!!。。just think of Rafa's epic win over Federer @ Wimbledon♥ 2008 as it was nervous and heart wrenching while watching live~*, perhaps one of the greatest tennis matches ever?, so with bated breath~* it's Serena vs. Justine @ Aussie's centre court~* now just minutes away…..どき♥どき~*するね~ ー(* ̄O ̄)ノ !!!

。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。Justine♥ gambatte~! えぃえぃ、ぉーo(*´∀`)o゛!!!

I'm so overjoyed that she's now back full time and seeing her reach the Australian Open final in just her second tournament back shows how it's so much like she never left in that her game is still so awesome and how her competitive fire~* remains!!

    Music is such a wonderful mind stimulant! I keep seeing from their DVD just how much they've absorbed! Their Mum is a hula dancer, so hopefully they'll pick that up too. 🙂 I'm slowly expanding them out of just English and Japanese to other stuff like Chinese, Korean and French, etc. Alan bridges a lot of that. Even instrumentals like the soundtrack to The Road Home and Kung Fu Panda. Wonder Girls are sexy, but not dirty, I think! ;)Gomaki seems like a strong person, but this has to be very hard…<3>

    The Japanese movie Hula Girls and the "Hawaiian" place in Japan it's based on would be an incentive! Emma's mom grew up in Hawaii too. She still performs today. Emma being so petite, would be wonderful! They are already great at "crazy" dancing! lolI keep waiting for the big Asian group/performer breakthrough to the US market. I will guess it's gonna be someone like Wonder Girls. I heard that there are gonna be several Indian TV shows this year, partcially due to Slumdog Millionaire So it will be something Japanese oriented that breaks through soon. Or Chinese, or Korean!

    Shall we Danzu is one of my favorites!! You can see why I would not be interested in an American version, since the basic premise is that Japanese people don't traditionally touch in public, so Ballroom Dancing is pretty close to scandalous, to the point where he would want to keep it secret from everyone.Have you seen Departures? It won Best Foreign Film at the Academy Awards last year. Truly touching and memorable!

  67. That's very true~* and I'm so happy that you know this too as it may not be common knowledge perhaps? Culture wise an American remake would lose quite a lot in translation as like you say our culture is much more comfortable with shown affection and in public also which is so different from Japan~. It is really *sexy~* and intimate…..lol shhh I have two left feet so to speak as I'm very clumsy when dancing and will step on your toes accidentally~ of course (*´艸`)I was reading the write~up when it won….I think you may have directed me to the link?? I can't remember but I never got to watch it =( well not just yet and if I see it released domestically I would purchase it to see for sure~*.
