Hi there! Hope you had a great Father’s Day weekend! We spent our family time by the coast this past weekend. Weather was amazing where scenery was beautiful with plenty of sunshine, but above all, I got to eat at my favorite seafood restaurant, which I might have enjoyed a bit more than the weather. ๐Ÿ™‚

So, I was feeling excited all weekend about this short day trip to the coast. Feeling excited can be expressed as “wake waku (ใ‚ใใ‚ใ, excitement)” in Japanese. This is another word that describes the state or condition. It is more so to be used as ” wake wake suru (ใ‚ใใ‚ใ ใ™ใ‚‹, feeling excitement)”

So, let’s get today’s lesson started~~ Read on~

 

Waku waku (ใ‚ใใ‚ใ๏ผŒใ€€ใƒฏใ‚ฏใƒฏใ‚ฏ) โ€“ feeling excited, thrilled
