“From the first class, I saw you, I thought you look like Japanese actress, your Skype picture!” – from one of my Young Learner gems. Well? Do I? HAHAHAHA It’s probably because of the smile. 🙂

2017 Project 365, Day 83: Samurai Gourmet

“This story is about a normal 60-year old man who is helped by a masterless samurai eat freely without being held back. A gourmet fantasy!”

Taking a break from watching Dexter because 1) this one’s Japanese and 2) it’s related to food!!! It’s so funny and hunger-inducing! I highly recommend “Samurai Gourmet” on Netflix! 😀

2017 Project 365, Day 25: Midnight Diner Tokyo Stories

If you have a Netflix account, I recommend that you stop whatever you’re watching and check out “Midnight Diner: Tokyo Stories”! Maaaaan, it’s so good, I’m already halfway through season 1! Apparently, it is based on the manga series, “Shinya Shokudo.” Love, friendship, self-acceptance, culture, and of course, Japanese food are some of the themes, and so far, every episode made me cry hehehe! A lot of the stories are touching and even relatable. Currently, only season 1 is streamed on Netflix – there is a second one, plus a film adaptation. Go watch it!!! I highly recommend it! 🙂

Today’s #RareJob news article is entitled “Sushi Art Becomes Internet Trend.” A lot of students have been requesting for it since this morning, and every time that happens, my sushi cravings intensify! I opted for Ta Ke Ho Me Sushi Stand‘s salmon sushirrito: sushi and burrito in one! Itadakimasu!



2016 Project 365, Day 310: TOEIC Day

Spent almost half a day with this antehhhh!  We decided to take the TOEIC (reading & listening) together! She took it because she wants to continously improve her score; I took it because I wanted to experience it! Now that I have, I can hopefully more effectively teach or advise my students who need to take the TOEIC! Nanaho and I were mentally tired, so we ate at Mr. Pizza Philippines and St. Marc Cafe! We taught each other some Filipino and Japanese expressions, and my take home would be “灯台下暗し” —> Todai moto gurashi, which translates to “The lighthouse does not shine on its base.” Thank you, Nanaho! My tummy, brain, and heart were fed. ❤ ❤ ❤
