Q&A on Intercultural Love (AMWF)

3 Comments

This month, I wrote a guest post for the awesome blog Madh Mama (go check it out!). The author, Alexandra, already had planned a questionnaire about my intercultural relationship with Hitomi. Here’s an excerpt of my answers!

How long have you been together?
We’ve just passed the 2 years mark! Still a young couple!

What qualities do you admire in your partner?
I like that he is so down to earth, because I’m a head-in-the-cloud kind of person, and it really helps me to have someone logical, organized, capable and wise beside me. He is the one who organizes our trips and dates, while asking for my opinion. It’s good for me, because I have a hard time organizing things!

I also like that he is not afraid of commitment and he’s very serious about everything he does – when he says he’ll do something, he will do it, no matter what. His promises are never a joke! I admire that a lot.

Favorite memory together as a couple…
I think that’s as hard as the question about my childhood! I’m tempted to say: our first kiss, or the first time he said “I love you”, or the first time I tried a kimono with him (a traditional Japanese clothing), because I cherish those memories deeply, but who doesn’t cherish that kind of memories? So instead, I’ll talk about one of those normal days where we just went bowling, then went to the movie theater to watched a (very bad) movie while eating nachos and popcorn, and after that went to a store similar to Ikea and tried all the most expensive couches and beds we could find, both knowing that we would probably never buy any of them in our entire lifetime. Even if it was a rainy day, we had so much fun! I think we should always cherish those kind of memories – those times where nothing extraordinary happened, but you were simply happy.

Jasmine is a 20-something years old French-Canadian student and part-time blogger who loves traveling, drawing, listening to (all kind of) music and eating (everything). To achieve one of her biggest dream, she went in Japan for two months and a half as a tourist in 2013. She was an exchange student at Daito Bunka University in Saitama (near Tokyo) during the year 2014 - 2015. She is now studying to eventually become a nurse back in Canada, so she lacks time to write about Japan. You can still read all her posts on her blog, since she'll let them there for you to enjoy :)

  2. I am a recovering Japan-aholic currently working with best-selling author and agent to perfect a book I’ve written about my 20-year experience with the Japanese culture. I think I may have coined the term “Japan-aholic” in the 80’s before social media provided a space for such topics…but I’m certainly glad you recognize the condition! God bless you and your relationship Jasmine. From Stacy (aka “The Six Foot Bonsai”) http://thesixfootbonsai.com/
