Clothes Shopping

Today’s my day out with Icepath 🙂
We went clothes shopping – down at Don Don Down on Wednesday at Shibuya.
It’s a second-hand clothes shop that reduces its prices down a notch on Wednesdays, which explains the shop name. I didn’t really bring much winter clothes over, so it’s time to get a bunch 🙂

The current price tags are as such
Eggplant ¥7,000
Spring Onion ¥5,000
Carrot ¥4,000
Peach ¥3,000
Strawberry ¥2,000
Grape ¥1,500
Pumpkin ¥900
Banana ¥500
Mushroom ¥300
Watermelon ¥100

How this works is that each piece of clothing is tagged with a fruit or a vegetable, and each week, the price rotates downwards. Next week, the Eggplant becomes → Read more

 Meeting T in Tokyo

I had an extremely delicious minestrone cup noodle by Topvalu, and then ダラダラed (lazed) in my room until late morning.  I then forced myself to get up and take a shower before heading out for my lunch appointment with T at Akihabara. I met him at the main exit and we walked off from the station.

He asked me what I wanted to eat, most probably for fun as he knows I don’t really have much of a food preference. I shrugged and said anything.

Along the way, we spotted an exhibition going on. I’m not exactly sure what the whole event was about, but there were many figurines from

Getting a Debit Card in Japan – Japan Net Bank Visa Debit

After staying in Japan for a couple of months, I feel that although credit cards are widely talked about, debit cards seem to be less heard of. As someone who wants to purchase online items, but is extremely uncomfortable in putting oneself into the whole complicated default revolving payment system of credit cards, I looked into debit cards in Japan that are under VISA and do not have a membership fee. There was only one card that satisfied all my criteria, and it is → Read more

Getting Colder

It’s getting colder here. My digital clock informs me that my room is approximately 19 degrees at night. I purchased a nice warm blanket for myself. It’s extremely fluffy and soft to the touch. I also got warm slip-on house shoes 🙂

Work – Day 2

It’s the second day of work.
I don’t need my suit – hurray.
No more long sleeves for me today.

Headed out to get my 印鑑 (name stamp) carved and my bank account opened. H-san kindly accompanied me.

Lunch! Yes, my 冷やし中華 (Cold Chinese-style Noodles)!
It’s as delicious as it looks!

Then it’s time to work on a translation 依頼 (request). It’s about a luggage deposit service. The format is of a poster-ish feel. I like this. It’s not filled with text from one end to the other.

I have my Internet, but I can’t copy-paste from the real desktop to the virtual one that has the Internet. How am I supposed to → Read more

Don’t have enough formal clothes!

I only have one full set of formal clothes – a blouse, a suit and a skirt.
And this was essentially what I bought for my interview.

As Tokyo Orientation draws nearer, I figured I really need to get a couple more formal outfits. Went down to a rather popular shop near my place, and found out that they were having a 40% off on woman blouses! Bought three new ones. Now I’m good.
