February Favourites in Japanese! 2月のお気に入りコスメ

1:08:00 AM 6 Comments A+ a-

I always get asked "Kim, why don't you speak Japanese in your videos?" It's quite hard to explain, but the only explanation I have is because I'm embarrassed to speak Japanese in my videos. My Japanese skill isn't actually that great, I can read and understand a lot of things, but I think my writing/speaking isn't very good. I was always scared to make a video in Japanese because I thought that people will judge me for my poor Japanese, so that's why I always avoided using it.

But when I went to Japan and had a few meetings, a lot of people wanted me to upload videos in Japanese. I felt pressured in a way. I love Japan, but I just didn't feel confident in speaking Japanese in front of a camera. It took me a while to build up the courage to upload a video in Japanese, but then I realized... If I'm too scared to even speak Japanese, then how am I ever going to improve?

So I decided, to do my February 2013 Favourites video in Japanese!



Hope you guys enjoyed it! I added subtitles for non-Japanese speakers. I know I made a mistake with the "お気に入り", should've said おきにいり instead haha. But at least you can learn from your mistakes! I'm surprised at all the support I got for this video, so I will try make more videos in Japanese soon!

Kim I love your blog and youtube videos. I'm from Ireland so obviously haven't a notion how to speak Japanese, but you shouldn't be embarrassed :) I'm from Ireland and about half the population can't even speak Irish fluently, I myself only understand bits and pieces, haha. Good work <3

Hi! I absolutely love your case in the Boyfriend Tag video. Where did you buy it/which brand is it? Even if it might be hard to find I'm sure I'll find it online somewhere!
Thanks xx
