About Me


world peace through cross-cultural understanding


I'm caring, considerate, sociable, hard-working and have a good sense of humor. I love mammals, from mouse to whale. I love music, used to sing/play a lot but not so much anymore. I'm a mother of two boys but they are living in Japan now, grown up nicely, after all the anxiety, struggle, confrontations, agony, etc. Phew, thank goodness :-) I'm very proud of them and I miss them so much. I play tennis and badminton, badly. I wish I could play better but I enjoy playing anyway.


I used to be an energy conservation adviser in Japan. Japan has amazingly energy efficient and resource saving knowledge/technologies in many things, however, on the other hand, it is driving forward and promoting nuclear power not only domestically but also internationally, which made and is still making me very sad and frustrated.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

-A sunset while crossing the Seto Ohashi Bridge by train; the small islands scattered in the Seto Inland Sea in every shades of grey to black with soft but impressive background colours from dark orange to greyish blue. Simply breathtaking!

-La Garganta del Diablo in Iguazu Falls. Simply amazing!
