Title: Christmas Personality: Chiy Chiy
Oh, by the way, I wonder until what age I can get a present from Santa, a Christmas present. If I can get one, I would still like to. I wonder where I should ask, (laughter) hey, in order to ask Santa. I wonder if he’s got a cellphone. Hmm (laughter). Yes. Still, indeed this world, this society seems rowdy and fun. There’s a sparkle*2 in the illumination. This season I get excited*3, even for nothing really. Yes, even nothing. Hmm, even just from the sparkling I get excited somehow.
