Photo #24: January 24

Found a 3-week old diner by accident, and their takoyaki is soooo oishii! Check out Tokyo Style – Marikina! They also have ramen and rice meals. They are located at Purple Street, Concepcion Dos, Marikina.

p.s. mapanlinang slight, though: I was expecting a whole baby octopus haha pero more of tentacles lang, but still good!!! Or baka pala sa sobrang sarap, di ko napansin kung buo ba haha emshere! 😋🐙

2020 Project 366, Day 4: Nengajō

Photo #4: January 4

Some of my loyal students showed me their “nengajō” or New Year’s cards, and sending them to family, friends, co-workers, clients, etc. is a big thing in Japan. This one stood out because the student designed it himself, plus he included an actual message, not just the usual “Happy New Year!” He wrote about watching Japan vs. Scotland at the Rugby World Cup in Yokohama and being excited about the upcoming Olympics and Paralympics this year. Lastly, he thanked me for another year of teaching him, so I feel like I “received” this card, too!

2019 Project 365 Day 357: Godzilla Capsule Toy

Photo #357: December 23

One of the things Japan is known for is their wide variety of capsule toys! Today, I learned that they are more popularly called “gacha” toys because of the sound the machines make when their knobs are turned. Anyway, what I thought was a character from My Hero Academia turned out to be Godzilla! I was a bit disappointed at first, but when I finally assembled it earlier, WOW IT’S SO COOL!!! 500 yen – worth it!!!
