I am now going to share with you a 'first time' experience. This is a questionnaire sent to me by Monkey Maya Maya (my Elektra buddy, and probably destined older sister). It will be good Japanese practice for me, and I will also try to translate the Japanese text into English! There may be some additional comments in English too!
