Hi everyone its been a long while since I posted something Japanese. And for the comeback, here’s my old photo of my very first calligraphy experience. The two white papers contains the same kanji but of course, the handwriting were different. I was the one who wrote the Kanji on the left (the one that looks like a joke), the other one was done by our calligraphy mentor on that day.
This kanji is 土曜日, in romaji it read doyoubi. It means “Saturday” in English. I chose to write Saturday’s Kanji because my surname is “Sabado” which exactly means “Saturday”. So no doubt it was the right Kanji for my name. On the other hand, the small characters were the Katakana counterpart of Mary Grace which is my first name. It reads “Meri Guresu” there. But while studying Japanese, the right katakana for mary should read “MEARI” or メアリー. Grace has an exact kanji which is 恵み. So my whole name in Japanese should be メアリー恵み 土曜日.I’ll write this in calligraphy paper some other time.
I think I should post more pictures of our calligraphy session! I will do that later.
