Les Nouvelles de la semaine 01.10.2010


Salut ! Excuse-nous, mais notre traducteur français est de sortie aujourd'hui... Pour être au courant des dernières nouvelles, jette un coup d'œil à la version anglaise du site !

Hello from all of us on the Flipnote Hatena team. This is Aaron at Hatena's offices in Kyoto, Japan with another edition of our weekly news blog.

We really enjoyed your Flipnotes about "eating" and it was fun to see how people all around the world think about this topic. We would like to thank all of you who posted Flipnotes about the topic last week, and hope that you enjoy the ones that we chose.

After watching all of your Flipnotes about "eating" we thought it might be good to link this week's topic to last week. If you are not careful and eat too much, it's not good for your health. For this reason we've chosen the topic of "Exercise" this week to remind you all to keep in shape. We hope this topic can inspire some of you to go outside and do some exercise before winter comes.

Videogames and food are great, but you need to remember to take care of your body. If you drop your Nintendo DSi and break it you can replace it, but your body can never be replaced!

Thanks for checking out the news blog from all of us at Hatena in Kyoto, and looking forward to seeing your Flipnotes!
