穏やか (おだやか)

sounds like “old yak”

boy, this old yak is awfully calm, as he sits there, chewing his cud and smoking his tobacco pipe. i’d like to be more like this calm, old yak.

Cheerful = Akarui (Adjective)

Sounds like – A Ca(r) Louie

Story – You are driving in a really junky beat up car with your friend Louie. You look at the car and see how beat up it is, half the roof is missing, the windows are cracked, the seats are cut up. Yet in spite of all this, your friend Louie is cheerful, and he has a big smile on his face. Just imagine riding in a car, with Louie, who is cheerful.

A ca(r) Louie = Akarui = Cheerful (Just remember to drop the “r” in car.)
