A Japanese tradition to do when you come back from holidays

You have to do this if you work or study in Japan. Don't forget those omiyage (souvenirs)!!!

  1. Ha-ha, office trolls. But, it is a true, Japan is country where people like to give and receive gifts. I received many, but mostly soba :lol: He-he, living alone, and do not like cooking, especially soba. I left that soba in Japan, but as a surprise I discovered one of those soba packs at my home recently. Nice looking pack, may be slightly petrified.

    Looks like Kelvin is a little けちguy. I bet, he should smile when giving a gift.

    Good one :)

    1. Oh my… you mean you kept the soba for so long!? When did you stayed in Japan?

      Hehe, Kelvin is more generous than Joanne actually. He treated Eva a few times :P

  2. Really, I did never stay in Japan for long time. I visited it 3 times and my longest stay here was less than 2 weeks, and mostly in winter time :lol:

    Being here, I received several gifts, like: red handkerchief, tote bag with a logo of Russian language school, hand cream, lighter ( very fancy ) and several packs of soba.

    He-he, that petrified soba I forgot it in a bag, which I used to travel Japan three years ago, when I did came to Nagano. This is a bag for snowboard, and I do not use it often :lol:
    BTW, I enjoyed to find that soba, and even tried to courage my coworkers to eat them.

    ewww...

    1. LOL so that soba was 3 years old XD

      I hope there's no insects crawling around! Are you still keeping it?

    2. Yeah, there were no any insects, I believe, because it is so messy and dirty at my place, that all insects are dying immediately.

      BTW, I dumped these very valuable soba, I did not have a courage to eat them, sorry for that.

    3. LOL, I thought you would have some incredible courage since you challenged your co-workers too XD

      Haha, I'm sure the insects are celebrating somewhere below your mess XD

    1. Well it's the same, but Japanese is more extreme :P
