「ミルクティーをいれる」
Well, when I hear milk tea, I think it’s actually Japanese English.
Okay.
So I would say tea with milk.
Yes, so I think when you add the verb, it becomes “make tea with milk”
「ミルク1に対して紅茶が2」
This is a good review because we learned this word in dialog 1. The word is part. or parts.
When you describe how much of each ingredient to put in. one part -, two parts -. In this case it would be “one part milk and two parts tea”
I got it.
「十分濃い」
enough strong
Well, I think the word order is important here.
Okay.
So I would say, strong enough.
How about thick, not strong?
I think the word strong works here, we’re not talking about thick.
Okay.
Something thick. なんかドロドロしてる
That’s right.
Yeah.

Well, now. They are going to make brown rice.

How do I know how much water I should add?
The rule of thumb is one part brown rice and one and a half part water.
I see. But I don’t have a measuring cup.
That’s all right. Use a glass tea cup, rice spoon, anything. It’s fun.
And this is a rice cooker.
That’s right.
Make sure you set it at genmai.
All right.
Then press the start button.
Good. I’m getting hungry. When will the rice be ready?
In a couple of hours.
I’ll make toast.
Me too.
How many pieces do you want?
Ah, two, three, four.

Well, Carolyn, I’m thinking of buying a new wallet, ah, in Canada?
Oh, yeah.
Any advice?
Well, Canadian dollar bills are smaller than Japanese ones.
So make sure it fits your bills.
Oh, yeah.
And you have so much money, Ken. Make sure it fits your pocket.
Oh!
My, ah, Ichi manen bills are so big, I can’t believe it.

Well, that’s about it for today. So until next time.

And keep on smiling.
Bye.
