Video of the week:
I found this video so funny that I had to share it, instead of a picture of the week.
Days 2290 – 2296
Thursday, June 26 – Wednesday, July 2, 2014
Day 2290 ( China Wants UN To Recognize The Nanjing Massacre )
Thursday, June 26, 2014
The days feel like they are flying away from me. Except for pay day which seems to take forever to come.
Did another recording for a listening test today at the school I'm at. That was pretty much my highlight of the day.
It's interesting to see these 2 rich and powerful Asian countries quarreling like children. Especially China.
Japan blasts Chinese bid for U.N. recognition of Nanjing massacre
I still don't get how and why some Japanese are denying that this even took place, even with all the pictures on the internet.
Day 2291 ( Tokyo number 1 City in the World )
Friday, June 27, 2014
Had only 1 class today then stared at the walls, and on the computer as well.
Tokyo rated No. 1 city in the world in Trip Advisor survey
Day 2292 ( The Other Woman / Highly Skilled Workers Allowed to Stay Permanently in Japan )
Saturday, June 28, 2014
A restful Saturday in contrast to last weeks craziness. Stayed in and played games and also watched a movie name "The Other Woman" with Cameron Diaz .....
Actually it has been number 1 in the box office now for some weeks. It was really funny....Had some good laughs from it. I mean it put some of us men in a bad light but yeah it was funny. I give it a 7/10.
Highly skilled foreigners to be allowed to stay permanently in Japan
Day 2293 (10 things Japan does better than anywhere else)
Sunday, June 29, 2014
Stayed in again playing Assassin's Creed Revelations for most of the day.
Today, rode to an area of Toyama where I heard that they were having a flea market. When I got there at about 3pm, I heard that it was already over. The brother of the Jamaican restaurant owner in Toyama, was playing his music system there.
I wanted to get there earlier but the rain was falling and stopping randomly. So I decided to stay in and wait until it stopped for at least 45 mins.

|I like nothing in this dish|
|This one is just ok...I won't call it absolutely delicious tho|
Aside from Japan tooting its own horn however subtle it is... Somethings are unquestionable like the superb tho expensive transportation system and the technology/game/manga/anime stuff. But food I would put a big ??????? Totally debatable. I realize that people from the first world part of the spectrum will more likely than not love most of the food... But I notice that most people from the third world don't go nuts over the Japanese food, generally speaking. Here are 2 of the comments on the article that I have to agree with:
Things that should have made the list: Awesome toilets, fireworks and service.
Day 2294 ( Fire Evacuation Exercise / The end of Poverty?? )
Monday, June 30, 2014
They had some sort of fire evacuation drill at the school today after teaching 2 classes.
I haven't done this in years. Actually this was the first time to have a fire evacuation drill since moving to Japan. I've done quite a few earthquake evacuation drills but no fire ones.
The over a thousand students had to run on the field ... class by class.... I'm not sure how effective this will be if a fire actually broke out in the school. I think it took like 5 minutes for all students and teachers to be on the field.
The end of poverty?
Day 2295 ( 79-year-old woman beats husband to death after arguing about past girlfriends)
Tuesday, July 1, 2014
Went to the bank today to transfer some funds...I'm heading back to Jamaica in a bit so hopefully I can save enough to fully enjoy the trip.
And this had to happen in my prefecture. Not trying to stereotype a race of people or be judgmental or anything like that, but I think East Asians just don't forgive easily or let go off past stuff.... That is why Japan, China and S. Korea are constantly at odds with each other.
