Sorry, Hirashin, I have decided not to help you any more with sentences that begin with, "As..." Perhaps other people here will help you with such sentences.

Thank you for your ongoing help, Buntaro and mdchachi.

At first I was surprised because I only read the first part of your comment "I have decided not to help you any more". I'm relieved to know that you will continue to help me. Thanks.
