Hey guys 👋🎉🎉🎉
Today was very tiring because we're chasing deadlines. But on the bright side, I have bought a new book!
It's a retelling.
It has a one word title.
It's a sci-fi/fantasy novel.
And there's a red shoe on the cover! 👠
If you've guessed Cinder, then you're absolutely right! Yes, I just bought Cinder because I really want to read it for a long time and get this, it's discounted! But looking back on my bookshelf at home, I still have many books to read that's on my TBR pile. I felt so guilty. But I'm excited to read Cinder!
I know almost everyone in here have already read Cinder, so what are your thoughts about it? I'd really want to know but NO SPOILERS PLEASE! 😂
About the Photo: Haven't read Black Ice yet but I bought it because it's discounted as well! And the plot sounds interesting. I cannot hide my hate towards Towering, I've ranted about it on my past posts 😢😂
Also, I noticed that I bought a lot of books this month! Maybe I'll post a haul photo soon! 😊 What do you guys think? Sorry for the long caption! Hahaha I need to stop now 😂
Totemic 5: Kamui Mintara
Poised atop Burnaby Mountain overlooking the Lower Mainland is 'Kamui Mintara', or ‘The Playground of the Gods,’ a large sculpture built to commemorate the Sister Cuty relationship between Burnaby & Kushiro.
Without the sister city relationship it's unlikely that Toko Nuburi, a renowned Ainu wood carver from Kushiro, would have bestowed such a grandiose sculpture upon our city. Kushiro Mayor Wanibuchi Toshiyuki invited Toko to participate in the 20th anniversary exchange.
* Toko presented some of his carvings to Burnaby officials and joined the organized tours to places like Stanley Park, Q.E. Park, & S F U. * Once atop Burnaby Mountain with Japanese & Canadian delegates, Toko broke away from the tour to walk the park grounds. Here's where he ended up, on the west side of Burnaby Mntn Pk. overlooking Burnaby, and metro Vancouver to skyline of downtown Vancouver, Stanley Park, and Lion’s Gate Bridge silhouetted in the distance. The view touched Toko and he later proposed to the mayor of Burnaby his concept of a large wood sculpture on that location to commemorate the goodwill & friendship between CANADA & Japan & the two cities facing each other across the Pacific.
* "... because I am the Ainu myself and a man that I carve. I do want you to understand through my carvings the ways of thinking, living and ideas of the Ainu people who have been living with the gods, and loved peace, living things, human beings and nature. Carving is my language and Yukar [Ainu epic story songs]. It is a poem of love.” ~ Toko Nuburi (1937-2014) (#japancanada#indigenous#Sculptures "#ainutotems#metrovancouver#towering#silhouette#canadiansunset#canadianpacific#mountainview#settingsun#totems#kamuimintara#sfu#burnabymountain#skyline#Harbour . #japaneseart#sculpture#sistercities#kushiro 🇯🇵+ #burnaby 🇨🇦 #burnabymountain#bc
