Simple Japanese Essays I Wrote (... Like A 3-Year-Old Child) About The Twin Towers and Beautiful Women

After more than a week of Japanese Language classes, I find myself enjoying the essay-writing most. Naturally, since I've always liked writing, but a bittersweet affair, since my Japanese language skills is of a toddler's, I was incapable of expressing myself as eloquently and fluently as I do in English or Chinese.

Seeing how I could only write in simple sentences, I can only comfort myself by saying that I write like a Dadaist, foregoing the contemporary academic and cultured values of art by writing entirely without aesthetics and style.

So, here's to share two essays with you all that I wrote in the past few days during classes.

The first one:

Beautiful Women

私はからい食べ物が好きです。
私は黒い靴が好きです。
私は甘い飲べ物が好きです。
私はきれいな女の人がとても好きです。

(I like spicy food.
I like black shoes.
I like sweet drinks.
I really like beautiful women.)


My second one is more of a contemplative, subtly nationalistic nature:

Beautiful Petronas Twin Towers

マレーシヤの湯名有名な建物はツイノタワーです。
昔の世界の一番高い建物はツイノタワーです。
ツイノタワーの下はショッピンクモールです。
ここはにぎやかな名所です。
夜のツイノタワーはとてもきれいです。

(One of Malaysia's famous buildings is the Twin Towers.
Once, they were the tallest buildings in the world.
Below the Twin Towers is a shopping mall.
It is a crowded place.
Twin Towers at night is very beautiful.)
