These days, I've been doing all sorts of random things. Everyday is filled with something new and I'm always on the hunt to learn something new. Lately, I've been learning how to cook. Sometimes I would cook at my apartment, and sometimes I would go to my friends' apartments to eat what they're cooking.
I forgot to say that I visited the Don Quijote in Akita. The inside is really big, or at least looks big. All the other Don Quijote's I went to were big, but this one was different. Maybe it was because the inside looped around like a stage area. I dunno. Maybe it's just me.
At the mall, I've been taking pictures with random costumed people. There was this one that reminded me of this one gum commercial. The costume looks like a ghost, but it's actually "Kiritanpo." In other words, rice on a stick!
Parties here vary from one to another, but I think it's safe to generalize that Japanese parties are more casual. It's one of those parties where you sit around and talk story all day. The foreigners parties are... quite different. I guess you could say, they're active and a lot more open. There's less food and more drinks too. In one party, I ended up dancing in a room with everybody while blowing bubbles.
Did I forget to say, I had the chance to drive a car around the parking lot for like 30 seconds. It was interesting! Japan is totally opposite from Hawaii. People drive on the left side of the road here, the wheel is on the right side, and the cars are extra small.
