Welcome to my blog
Hello, I’m an Australian born Chinese who has a great interest in Japanese. I have studied it for about 6 years both at university and then through self study. I have passed the JLPT level 1 and have now gotten to the level where I am reading novels in my free time. Still I feel that there is still a long way to go as I am always encountering many unknown kanji characters and expressions.
I have a great interest in Japanese Anime and would say that I could qualify as an Otaku as I enjoy collecting anime figures, manga, following the latest trends and recently even venturing into building and painting anime resin model kits (also known as garage kits). I also enjoy Karate, Jujitsu and reading Japanese light novels. Of course, I also enjoy writing a blog in Japanese to practice my composition.
I have a Japanese blog which is my main blog that I use to practice writing in Japanese, although I felt a need to make myself an English one so that my friends can make some sense of what I write in my main blog.
At the moment, my plan is to post translations of the Japanese blog for translation practice as well as writing here regularly too.
Anyways, I hope you enjoy reading this blog.
