Mao Asada + Mary Poppins = Adorable

I love Mary Poppins and Mao is just simply adorable here. I haven’t seen such happy energy from her for a while and I’m happy that she’s still forging on with a smile on her face. This exhibition is nowhere in the league of her Por una Cabeza or Chopin’s Ballade no. 1 but it’s still entertaining and her double axels are breathtaking. I could just watch them over and over again. Here’s to hoping for a good season for her!

Enjoy~!

P.S. Who else thinks that if Mao can’t skate singles anymore, she should go into ice dance. I’m sure she and Takahiko together would be better than the Reeds.

    me…but I’m not sure whether I get the idea from reading your blog.
    I don’t think Taka has the strength to lift Mao. However, if Mao pairs up with Dai, she can lift Dai — even Kanako can lift him.

      Hm… Mao with any of the Japanese men might not fare too well because they’re all really short. I was surprised to see that Dai was slightly shorter than I am when I met him at Skate Canada 2009.

    I can watch this exhibition a thousand times and never get bored. Just miss these smiles and energy from Mao! And by the way, this is one of the best triple Flips I have seen her do in years and her skating skill seems better than ever. Just feel so happy for her.
