The Great Japanese Chocolate Digestive Ranking

Ok, I’m writing up a megapost about food currently but it’s taking ages. So here’s a different one. For some reason, since coming to Japan, I can’t stop eating chocolate digestives. Maybe it’s a homesickness thing, like how I’ve suddenly started to religiously watch Eastenders and The Apprentice when I never really paid much attention…

Buying Concert Tickets Whilst In Japan: GET TICKET Fan Club Tickets

This one is about buying Fan Club tickets through GET TICKET, a ticket service site! Fan Club members get first dibs on tickets, and they get the best tickets. For many standing concerts, entrance is strictly monitored and you enter on a numbered basis; starting from A1 up until a certain number, then moving onto…

変わらない未来を願った

So! This post ended up having much more content than I expected. I was expecting the concert on the 13th to be a quick in and out job; pay for drink token, jump about a bit, run home to study for the kanji test the next day. But life isn’t like that, is it? Kissing…

Frozen strawberries work very well in pancakes if you enjoy pancake batter; as you cook the mixture the frozen strawberries leak moisture, creating…

long time no see

As the title says! Don’t know where I went. My family came for a week and I had so much fun being a little guide for them. My brother put me in some terrible situations that tested my Japanese to its absolute limit, but I loved every second. For example, he had a blocked ear…

i keep confusing the japanese words for handshake and sneeze

Seriously. It’s really problematic. When you buy a CD to preorder an event ticket they’re like “What event do you want to go to?”, I always forget the word for handshake (握手 akusha) and the onomatopoeia for sneeze (ハックション hakkushon). Typing them out now they’re not terribly similar, actually. But still. One of these days, I’m going…
