Kamakura day trip Sep 2013

kamakura japan september japanese train
WHOAH~ 7 months had passed since I left Japan but I still have some blog articles to clear before my next adventure (if my book sells well?)! This is about my trip to Kamakura on 19th Sep 2013. Kamakura is approximately an hour train ride from Tokyo and is a popular tourist destination for short get-aways. It's also called Little Kyoto for the numerous number of temples and shrines.

What people do during holidays

When my friend asked me out on a holiday, this was my reply:

IT'S JUST TOO HOT & CROWDED EVERYWHERE!
  • Karaoke rooms were fully booked
  • No good seats in cinemas
  • Long queue at restaurants 
  • Crowded shopping malls
  • Weather too hot for sight-seeing
  • Museums flooded with kids
There was only one thing left for me to do... continue to do work at home... =_=;;

Japanese packaging

I'm such a sucker for these fancy packaging… I suppose it's good that I returned home to stop me from wiping out my savings...

Evacomics debut on magazine!

My comics can be found in the J+PLUS magazine now! J+PLUS is a bimonthly free magazine targeted at the Japanese community living in Singapore. The magazine is released on the first and third Thursday every month, and can be found at Japanese supermarkets and various restaurants.

Because it is for Japanese, everything is written in Japanese except for my comics. The magazine is mainly ad-supported so there are a lot of articles introducing products and services of various shops in Singapore.

Why put my year of birth? Because Japanese always put them so I followed XD

Freebies on the streets in Japan and Singapore

I guess other countries are about the same.
You only get free paper advertisements on the streets (right?)

English in Japan and Japanese elsewhere

English in Japan and Japanese elsewhere
It's funny how Japanese brands try to use as much English as possible, but non-Japanese brands try to use as much Japanese as possible to look Japanese

PS. Apologies that I made it sound like I'm stupid, but of course, I know why they do that. It was ironic so I was making fun of the phenomena.

Cultural difference of east and west

Gather and disperse cultural difference of east and west
Gather and disperse… (exaggerated)
Collectivist and individualist cultures

When I was studying in US, I wanted to hang around and talk to my classmates, but many just dashed off to do their own things. However when I was studying in Japan, I wanted to leave asap to do my own thing but somehow many people wandered around to chit chat :/

What salaryman do after work

My Japanese university had an exchange program with a Singapore university and while chit chatting, my Japanese classmates were surprised that we don't hang out with colleagues after work. "Of course we don't hang out with colleagues after work, we go back home to be with our family or hang out with friends," I said. Apparently work is very important to them.
