August 5, 2006 – Broken remote karaoke

After work I went out for some karaoke and drinks with Koalako and her friends in Numazu.

Usually when I go out for karaoke, I’m with at least a few English teachers. Tonight I was the only non-Japanese person in my group, and possibly in the whole building as well. Koalako is functionally bilingual but her friends weren’t so it was a good chance to practice my Japanese. We had a lot of fun and I wasn’t completely awful at singing.

On our way out, the karaoke remote had an unfortunate accident on the stairs to the front counter. We apologized to the staff and Koalako attempted to reassemble the remote for the staff. They acted like it wasn’t their first time to see a remote bounce down the stairs.

Seriously though, who puts a bunch of stairs in a place where people are drinking?

January 29, 2004 – 10 Degrees and Sunny

Japanese practice in Yokohama, Mos Burger and chatting to friends at home on MSN make for a good day. For those freezing in a long, cold Winnipeg winter – I would like you to know that it 10 degrees and sunny with a beautiful blue sky here today. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

(2014 update)

I am in Winnipeg as I am rewriting my original post, and it is -30 outside. I would kill for 10 degrees, even without sunny skies.

MOS Burger is a Japanese fast food chain that is now the second largest fast food franchise in Japan after McDonalds Japan. They offer a variety of Japanese style hamburgers. Definitely worth a try if you want to try some international fast food.
