Anyway, for today's events I decided to wear a Japanese jacket that I love. I purchased it almost 10 years ago at a flea market in Tsukuba but never got the chance to wear it. I was inspired to do so today (since all the kids at school were supposed to wear something Japanese). Upon arrival at school, I realise that I was not the only foreign mom who thought about wearing Japanese clothes. And I did get some praise from my Japanese friends.
Here are the pics:
The back of the Haori
Close up on my face (and destroyed make up)
The shoes: made for home but used for the outside world
These wristbands coast 300Y that will go directly to the earthquake relief fund.
They have for messages:"Hope for Japan" and "Let us support Japan" (written in Japanese)
Love these earrings. Too bad they are starting to get ruined.
I spent way too much money at the bake sale (providing some cakes baked at home and buying 10 samosa that my Indian friends made) but I do not regret it because it is for a good cause. I guess I was compensating for my guilt at not being able to do much more for this country that I love.
And you? Have you donated (time or money) to help our Japanese friends?
