Words of the Day VI

Words of the Day, female friendly version.

Today, I felt bad about my last two blog postings, to I decided to do a less genderist one.


Japanese Word of the Day is: バラ
                                           Bara

English Word of the Day is:  Fragrance


Bara simply means rose. It comes from ibara, which means, thorn. Roses are absolutely beautiful. It is written in katakana instead of kanji as the kanji is purportedly rare. Fascinating!
Fragrance means the scent or smell of something. It sounds faffy, so it's most likely french in origin. Fragrance can also mean a perfume or other equally formulated pungent liquid. Neato.

Bara in a sentence:  私のアッドをご覧になって下さい。
                                 I gave the sick person a rose.


Well, that's about it for me today. Tell me in the comment section if you've ever given or received a rose.

  5. I've given some roses. However I don't think I'll receive one, since it seems a bit weird for a man to receive flowers.

  13. I remember when I was little, our school used to sell roses around Valentine's Day. Yellow was supposed to mean secret admirer, but I got a yellow one for my mom because I liked it the best lol.
