Like Chitose, Kizuna gets a fresh set of wallpapers too. .posts-show-content #character_carousel .item { padding: 0px; border: none; } .posts-show-content #character_carousel […]

    • Online Japan Store
      When I was studying Japanese many moons ago during an era when there was no Internets, I had to get myself along to a book shop called the Japan Center in London to hunt for magazines. This photo was taken way back then showing you what type of magazines I bought. Unfortunately no ecchi 2D girly magazines at that time which is always tough for strapping youn […]

Lost series. Copypaste mayhem.

Had been a devoted fan of Lost series, when I had cable in my apartment.
As far as I can remember, hadn’t missed an episode.
It’s been really captivating, indeed.
Digged out a few absolutely and utterly hilarious copy-pastes from iichan.

Cooking in Brooklyn. (sort of…)

Since starting a new job, barely have a time to cook at all.
Today, carved some time to scramble some GyuDon with Bunashimeji mushrooms for supper.

Tasty!

Afternoon, eastern Jersey.

Been to Jersey today on business. On the way back couldn’t miss the chance of having late lunch / early supper at my favorite place nearby – Mitsuwa.

Miso ramen and ikura rice for noms.

Detolf overhaul.

Detolf itself is certainly a fine piece of Swedish ingenuity. Just think about it, four pieces of tampered glass, few metal rods, chrome hinges and couple of boards made of a wooden scraps! All this for around $60, brilliant!

Wouldn’t you mind having a mirror in your Detolf, so you won’t only stare on the fronts of your figurines, Gundams or pristine Victorian pottery for what so not? I certainly wouldn’t!

Snow aftermath photo walk. Fun in the snow.

Was around lower Brooklyn – Bensonhurst area, snapped several shoots of the aftermath of the yesterdays “epic”, according to weather blokes, snow storm.

Scenery here, drastically differ from the City’s. Sanitation blokes here will just plow the streets and leave snow on the side to wait for the good times to come.

Takoyaki lunch.

From my recent shopping trip to Mitsuwa brought a pack of frozen “Takoyaki” (jap., romaji) – essentially a baked wheat blob with a piece of octopus inside.
That’s where the name of the dish originates from “tako” (jap., romaji) – octopus and “yaki” (jap., romaji) – process of baking food.
Served with special souse and topped with “bonito” (jap., romaji) – dried tuna shavings.
Already pre-cooked and astonishingly delicious.

Do you have an ability to satisfy “otaku” cravings on your side of the pond?

Photo “Everydations”.

Everydations – a notion that I came up with to underline, photos of mine that don’t really fall under any feasible categories, random stuff so do speak.

Earlier that week was on Manhattan to get some art supplies in china town around Canal street, back streets around this area drastically differ from what an outsider may think of shiny and sparkling city of glass and concrete.
