I've already started planning my dinner menu for the Chinese New Year on Jan. 23. Like many Chinese people around the world, I look forward to the lunar New Year with great excitement. My love of this holiday has nothing to do with dragon parades and red envelopes stuffed with lucky money; for me, Chinese New Year is all about the food.
へえ、旧正月ってChinese New Yearって言うんだ。日本酒と中華料理は意外とあうようなこと書いてあるけど本当だろうか？あ～、たまには酒飲みたい。

The Cabinet reshuffle was relatively minor, with Noda removing five of the 17 ministers and keeping the other 12. Foreign Minister Koichiro Gemba, Finance Minister Jun Azumi, Economy, Trade and Industry Minister Yukio Edano, and Nuclear disaster minister Goshi Hosono, retained their posts.The Japan times
細野豪志・原発担当相 ってNuclear disaster minister Goshi Hosonoなんだ。直訳すると原子力災害大臣？！う～む、なんか災害を起こす大臣みたいだ（笑）原発事故対策担当大臣ぐらいの意味なんだろうな。
