#1446 – Nostalgia: Dragon Ball

ENGLISH It has been awhile since I posted something under this Nostalgia category apparently, haha. Anyway, I don’t have much time now so here we go 😀 *** One of the most coolest Japanese manga series when I was in Elementary School was, unsurprisingly, the Dragon Ball.

#1320 – Last Week’s Story

ENGLISH Sinterklaas So, I have been a good boy this year. This is proven by the fact that last week, I got a present from the Sinterklaas!! Huahaha 😆 Okay, it was not the Sinterklaas that gave me the present but it was from the Zwaarte Piet (The Black Pete), but still… 😀 . Yes,…

#1127 – A Present from Me for Myself

#1001 – Sinterklaas, Queue, Project, and Firework

ENGLISH Sinterklaas So, last Monday, which was December 5th, was celebrated as the “Sinterklaas Day” here in the Netherlands. Btw, don’t mix Sinterklaas up with Santa Claus. They are different. One of the differences (I am currently too lazy to name more than one, hahaha :P): People say Sinterklaas lives in Spain while Santa Claus lives in…
