Day 562 { Group Quiz } Friday, October 2, 2009


Day 562 { Group Quiz }


After work today, I went by the college in Niimi. Some exchange students were there from a University in Kyoto. I think all the students were from the USA and were either majoring or minoring in Japanese studies... When I got there, a quiz was going on and I was placed in group #4 of 4 groups. My group won the quiz... but initially we were tied for first place and a representative from the winning groups had to janken( rock, paper, sissors ) to decide the winner....And that was how we eventually won.... We got a prize along with the second and third place groups but the 4th place group got nothing.... I felt bad for them as they all had this sad look on their faces.... Oh well...


Questions would be asked and a representative from each group should hold up the correct answer on a piece of paper.....The answer should preferably be in Kanji.... Questions like:

What is the name of the new Japanese President ( Hatoyama Yukio )
What is the height in Meters of Mount Fuji ( 3,776 Metres )
What is the population of Niimi ( 35,022 )

were asked.



More on the Kid napping incident...

Arrested dad warned court in U.S. wife was likely to flee

An American father arrested in Fukuoka for snatching his children had tried for a year to persuade a judge in Tennessee that his ex-wife was likely to flee the U.S. with them, divorce records show.

The documents obtained Wednesday outline Christopher John Savoie's attempts to restrict his ex-wife's ability to travel with their 8-year-old son and 6-year-old daughter, and her unhappiness with living in this Nashville suburb.

Savoie, 38, was arrested Monday as he tried to enter the U.S. Consulate in the city of Fukuoka with his children, the latest twist in a case that underscores long-standing disputes over Japan's traditional favoritism toward mothers in custody battles. Police said he had grabbed the kids as they walked with their mother to their new school in Fukuoka.
