When Couples Talk

Posted by: Ms Ayain Ms Aya's Papers

During my trip in Japan, we went to Umeda Sky Building, which is an observatory deck in Osaka.

I can’t tell you precisely how high the building is however, the night view from above is fascinating and breath taking. It’s ashamed that I cannot provide you a visual aid on the night scenery as it was dark and my camera could not snap nicely.

The sky building is located in the middle of the city so basically from the top deck, you could view the city and admire the sky scrappers plus stars, should there be any. XD

Well when I got up there, I admit that the first thing that came to mind was how pain my legs were because we spent the day walking to many places. Secondly, it became colder and only then I noticed the awesome view.

My friends were busy taking pictures while I strayed to look around. I did for a moment just stood in one place to capture the image of the scenery in my mind however, it got boring real fast. There weren’t many stars to begin with.

So this sheep, decided to observe other things.. Namely people. :D

I noticed there were quite some couples around and I got curious, “What exactly do couples do in a moment like this? What do they talk about? Is it like how we see in the movies where they say and do romantic things?” There were Japanese and other foreigners so it made me very curious to find out.

With my busybody mode on, I stood close to the couples to observe and eavesdrop on their conversations. My Japanese is not proficient however I could grasped what most of the Japanese couples were saying. Well.. Simply because… They did not speak much. -_-

Most of them kept on exclaiming to one another, “Sugoi! Suteki! Kirei! Takai! Sugoi! Sugoi!” which means Wonderful! Beautiful! So high! Wonderful! =_=

I can understand that they were amazed and overwhelmed but the whole sugoi~~ went on for too long until I thought to myself, “Fuck it with the sugois and say something else lar!”

I moved from couple to couple until there was one that seemed to be a surprise gift for his girl friend. The guy told the girl that he brought her to surprise her for something and to spend time with her. He asked if she liked what she was seeing and of course, full of sugoi~ and kirei~ came out from the girl’s mouth.

After that, they just cuddled and seemingly turned into a stone — a very happy one.

I went on to observe the non-Japanese couples. I could not understand their language but as for gestures, they were cuddling more than talking with each other.

With this observation, I came to a conclusion that couples don’t need to talk so much as they just want to hold each other in silence.

… It was boring to watch the couples so I ended up squatting in one corner, wondering what to eat and… other random stuffs. :/

Hello hello Sheep-chan!!!! I know I haven’t been reading for a super long time and I hang my head in deep deep shame. Still, I’m glad to see that you seem to be doing well, and of course growing to be more and more lovely each day :)

Well regarding your post, I think that listening to the Japanese couples isn’t really the best sample. After all, most Japanese seem to feel obliged to speak in hyperbole and exaggeration about their admiration for the view etc. thus the repeated SUGOI! KIREI!!

But I guess being up there with someone you love, whether it’s your significant other or even just a close friend or family, it’s their presence more than anything special that they say or do there that makes it meaningful, I guess? Imagine having to come up with something especially romantic every time you go somewhere new! But when you love someone you want them to see the same things that you do and have the same fun experiences… Desho? At least, that is my opinion…

Dear Tony

No-ness! There is no romantic feeling between us at all! D:

And and…. Go drink Strawberry milk! I’ll get you a box of that! XD

Dear Krayle-chan

Choo hishashiburi!

Well I really thought they will speak like in their dramas and animes. Sheep was really looking forward to hearing words as such but oh well… Atleast we can confirm that they are creatures who exaggerate and overuse their sugoi and kirei words. XD

In regards to your final passage… Sheep can’t really say as sheep never experienced that moment of silence with a precious person. :/

Sobby! Guess krayle-chan has had that moment and glad for you.. Instead of ending up as a busybody like a certain sheep. XD

I get so warm and fuzzy when I see cute couples! I did the exact same thing when I was in Korea too! .. Only unintentionally! Couples are everywhere in Korea and Japan, yes?? And most of them are soooo cute together! ^^

I think couples who are chatterboxes are cuter though!! Couples who really talk and rant about stuff to each other!! It’s a sign that they are truly comfortable with each other. I love it when couples are each others best friend or soulmate :’)

Also, some couples just really love the comfortable silence between them. It’s all different for people, really! ^^v

Sometimes, it makes me wonder if I’m in love with the idea of being in love. I have so many ideas and standards. Ms. Sheep….. I think I’m going to the same corner and wonder what to eat too… -.-”
