for indecisive ppl...

doko-mo ii desu
- anywhere is fine

zen zen heki desu
- it's alright/okay

also...
toire... doko?!?
- toilet... where?!?! (for the weak bladders...)

here's a tip when learning japanese... for adjectives that have opposites, just remember one of them. eg; learn how to say 'beautiful', but not 'ugly' yet. because you can just add a negative-form to the back of 'beautiful' (kirei):

kanojo wa kirei desu. (kanojo = she)
- she is pretty.
kanojo wa kirei dewa arimasen (or kirei ja nai)
- she is not pretty.

as long as u can get ur msg across =).

nihongo: Watashi wa kudamono ga suki desu
meaning: I like fruits

nihongo: I dislike (to eat) meat
meaning: Watashi wa niku ga kirai desu.

By the way, can anyone please teach me how and when to use kureru and ageru? Domo arigato gozaimasu!

kureru = to give something to the speaker
ageru = to give something to someone (not the speaker)

eg:
Otouto wa watashi ni hon o kuremasu
My brother gives me a book

Otouto wa Ali-san ni hon o agemasu
My brother gives Ali a book

Watashi wa Ali-san ni hon o agemasu
I give Ali a book

I suppose it's "ore wa kami desu". "ore no kami desu" has the meaning "my god".

Welcome to this corner.
I would like to point out a small mistakes here.
Since "saikyou" is in factnot really an adjective,
so a "no" is needed between Saikyou and Chikara.

Ore no saikyou no chikara.

Try this japanese tongue twister I just made up:

kuroneko no koneko no kuroi tebukuro

meaning:
the black cat's kitten's black mittens

It works well as english tongue twister as well

By the way, nihongo no sekusyon ni youkoso!
