By Margaret W. Lavigne 


 The script of the Japanese drama Asunaro Hakusho ( “Asunaro White Paper”) is based on a manga series created by Fumi Saimon. The manga series won the Shogakukan Manga Award in 1992.



Much like the TV series “Friends,” the story line revolves around the five young university students’s entangled love relationships and friendship.  Tamotsu and Osamu (Kimura) both fall in love with Narumi. Narumi is in love with  Tamotsu but Tamotsu is having another relationship long before he meets her. Tamotsu loves Narumi more than his girlfriend but he tries hard to be faithful. Aside from this, it’s no way for Tamotsu to end his first relationship out of responsibility and gratitude for what she had done for him. That’s why everyone suffers. An  unexpected accident lead to the death of Junichiro. After years of separation, they encounter each other again. Will they be honest to their affection? Will life gets better this time? Is she still in love with Tamotsu?

Q: What would you do if you and your friend fall for the same woman/man?

If you both like the same person, it’s important to acknowledge your feelings and have a open discussion with your friend. It might be awkward at first. It might be difficult to initiate the conversation. But, it’s definitely worth discussing about how to move forward. Take time to reflect on your priorities. 


It’s never easy to meet the girl of your dreams. You admire her character and you are obsessed with her smiles. You can’t wait to have another conversation with her again. And you found your best friend feels the same way about her as well. Indeed, this awkward uncomfortable situation is very common. 

#Rule 1  : Do not consider about winning the girl. Consider more about her feelings and affections. Does the girl favor one of you blatantly over the other?It’s never easy to deal with loss, rejection and disappointments in life.

#Rule 2: Bring it up and set some ground rules for chasing the girl, so it won’t shipwreck your friendship. It’s never easy to deal with loss, rejection and disappointments in life. But we all have been through that.

Do not stigmatize life challenges. Because the Bible mentions that God only disciplines those He loves. It takes time to figure out the blessings in life. According to the Bible, those who have been “given much, much will be demanded” (Luke 12; 47–48). 手機板建議「利用目錄或關鍵字搜尋主題」或留言發問。初衷是成立一個兼具療癒性及知識性的平台,囊括中英文稿。支持網站最好的方式,是幫忙把文章分享出去。世界太多聲音,太容易迷失,所以互相督促!學問和人際關係,都最怕道聽塗說和一知半解。 理財,從照顧好自己的健康開始!中醫「肝開竅於目、心開竅於舌、脾開竅於唇、肺開竅於鼻、腎開竅於耳」。研究證實好壞情緒會關鍵性決定身體的發炎指數和血糖指數!容易緊繃焦慮不安或睡不好,多補充維生素B和鈣的食物(補給品不建議天天吃,建議攝取天然的食物)。術前或牙科看診前多補充鈣,因為鈣是解痛劑。術後或身體發炎期間或痘痘,多補充E,主修復,可以大大降低留疤機率! 根據營養學,害喜是因為缺乏B6,而攝取含維生素E的食物可避免baby有黃疸的情況。生產前多補充鈣質和維生素D的食物可以有效降低生產的疼痛。 母體缺乏維生素E,是造成早產的常見主因之一。攝取充足維生素E,可望終止慣性流產。 據國外研究,治療阿茲海默症(失智症),戒糖痊癒機率高!胃食道逆流,建議選擇鹼性飲食,忌過食!便秘,建議攝取水溶性纖維的蔬菜!還有,身體缺少油脂,便缺少潤滑劑,無法順利排便。肩頸痛、背痛建議按壓手背指間的穴道,效果立見!脖子控管甲狀腺和自律神經,甲狀腺控管體溫,所以手腳冰冷或自律神經失調或久坐族群,都應該經常按壓手背食指和中指之間的穴道,非常有效。嘉義,不容錯過的景點《鰲鼓濕地》、《幸福山丘》、《傲慢烘培坊》。醫學書籍推薦《求醫不如求己》及《向癒》。盼你我都能抵達想去的地方,想著別人的好,卻是最先溫暖了自己。最近很想找好喝的擂茶。合作邀約jpsiawase@gmail.com
