One Good Thing A Day – Project Day 6 – Wilkinson’s Ginger Ale

Wilkinson’s Ginger Ale = Yum.

This ginger ale has two type and my favorite is the full ginger flavored one like the photo below.  To purchase this brand in a cafe or bar, it’s at least ¥500 ($6.00 USD) for one small glass. I found it in a shop near home for ¥89 ($1.08 USD)!!!  yay!

Oh so delicious

Beautiful bottle design

One Good Thing A Day – Project Day 5 – Furoshiki Handbag

A surprise in the mail!

I received a beautiful gift in the mail from a couple of friends as a late Christmas gift -we were all supposed to get together around Christmas time, but first my boyfriend got sick, followed by me (-_-;) After that, all of us got busy as usual, so we decided to at least mail eachother’s gifts.

Since my friends know me so well…… the sent me a beautiful furoshiki handbag with removable handles.

I absolutely LOVE IT!

Gorgeous furoshiki handbag with detachable handle

Lovely Red Handle

The other side of the handle is a pretty yellow


What’s Engirsh? How about Japanglish?

Surely, many of you have heard or seen Engrish first-hand. It’s basically the incorrect or confusing English found in many countries….but mostly in Asia and more specifically Japan….which is also where “Japanglish” comes from. I’m not trying to put the Japanese people down about this, but being an English teacher in Tokyo, it certainly makes me feel like I’m fighting a losing battle here.

Everywhere I go, there are prime examples of English gone wrong…. but no one seems to really mind, as long as there is some kind of English included, it’s “cool” *(>_< )*

I’ve shown examples of some Engrish that I came across in this previous post….. and here are some more!

Mostly Spelling Mistakes:



Sometimes I’m not sure why it was approved…

Drink this if you have Zero Style

Jesus Body?!?!?!?


It’s impossible to go a day in Tokyo without Japanglish!

One Good Thing A Day – Project Day 4 – “Our” Little Birds

Today I have two little unexpected visitors. My current place is about 25 floors up, which has a lovely view of a river and the city, but it is a shame not being able to see animals….. but today, two cute little birds landed on the balcony railing. I managed to snap a couple of quick shots before they flew away. Seems like I’ve been in Tokyo too long since this was unbelievably exciting for me!

One Good Thing A Day – Project Day 3 – CSI Vegas

What made me happy today?

I finally got a chance to sit back, relax and enjoy the newest CSI (Vegas). It’s still my favorite show….though I really wish William Petersen’s character would come back into the series -it certainly doesn’t have the same charm as it did.
