Unlike the last iPhone Suica App I blogged about earlier, here’s another method for you to put your Suica or Pasmo into your iPhone.
Was out for dinner with the rest of the Tokyo Live Bloggers at Ebisu last night. It was our last get together for 2009 and we spent it eating hainanese chicken rice!
Unfortunately, the only prize I got for getting there early was a choice of where to sit at the table of 10. ^^.
Shinkansen is probably the most convenient way of traveling medium-long distances in Japan. For trips with distances longer than long, fly. ^^.
Unlike flying, when using the bullet train, there’s no need to catch a bus/train to get into the city from the airport because one usually gets off (and on) the shinkansen at a major city station. In fact, you’ll only catch a bus/train to get out of the city!
I have to hand it to the Japanese family that lives here. Isn’t this just an ingenious use of space? Also protects the car from birds flying overhead. ^^. Might be a little difficult should the family upgrade to a bigger car. Don’t suppose a 4WD will fit in there. Do you?
At least it’s much better better than this.
Just as the title suggests, it’s just a short clip of me getting my head vacuumed. Get it every time after a haircut. Quite a common practice in Japan and it’s pretty good for picking up bits and pieces of leftover hair. ^^.
How often do you get your head vacuumed?
Chanced upon this interesting poster of Taro Aso, the previous "otaku" prime minister of Japan, when walking to TGIF for lunch in Shibuya. Done in the same style as Obama’s Hope poster, there’s an alphabet missing. What do you suppose it read originally?
BONE? CONE? DONE? NONE?
My best guess is … GONE?!
Although my nose isn’t blinking red, that didn’t stop me from auditioning for the part of Santa’s reindeer. Santa looked… pretty happy to see me. Welcoming me with open arms. ^^.
He does look awfully like Colonel Sanders doesn’t he. Distant cousins perhaps?
