My favorite thing is tennis.

When the watch is played in America, it is always midnight in Japan.

Then everyone plays tennis much more.

I like to play time.

It is important for me to play time.
I can't live without playing time
I can't give in to anybody on this playing time.

I like a lot of confectionaries, so I can't choose the best one.

It may be said a favorite and does not understand it, but there is a hobby?
My hobby is to read a book and listen to music. And I play the piano well. I am relaxed very much when I listen to music. I think that it is a hobby to feel that I am happy. What is your hobby? It is a hobby to feel that you are happy. Please try to look for it if there is not it. Surely I should be found.

I like money.
I like saving money.
I have a lot of money in the bank.
Money makes me happy.

I don't won't waste money as much as I can.
Thank you.

That's all for today, folks. But don't you worry! I've got another post of them ready and waiting.... It occurs to me that this English is almost better than the Jengrish that we see in stores or on clothes.... I bet the translators get their kids to do the work....
