Many people ask me about my hobbies. When I tell them my hobbies, they are usually surprised! I guess my hobbies are kind of unusual.
One of my hobbies is keeping fish. Not just any kind of fish, but Nishikigoi (or Japanese carp, in English). I have five nishikigoi at home in my living room! I used to have six fish, but one of them jumped out of the tank and died about two weeks ago. I was very sad. I like Nishikigoi because they are so beautiful and colorful and there are many different kinds. They are also gentle and very sociable.
My other hobby is baking. As many of you already know, I love sweets! But I also love making sweets. I can make pretty much anything, including cakes, cookies, pies, muffins and bread. I usually make something once a week on my day off. It’s not such an unusual hobby, but many people are surprised because I am a guy.
Do you have any unusual hobbies? Please tell me about them the next time we meet!
