Today’s lesson was all about roads and overtaking. First, I’d like to start off by saying how I am LOVING these instructors. Not only are they they very definition of professionalism, they are also fun. Yes, they are. The structure of the lessons are simple, theories mixed with actual scenarios. The teaching medium is notContinue reading “Journey to Freedom S01E03: You shall not pass!”

Journey to Freedom S01E02: Am I Normal?
March 19, 2013 I just enrolled yesterday at Koyama Driving School Tsunashima, one of Japan’s most prestigious schools for driving and I am really excited. So excited that I unintentionally arrived an hour and a half early for my aptitude exam. Today I’ll also be attending my first class、運転者の心得、loosely translated to “Driver’s Knowledge”. When IContinue reading “Journey to Freedom S01E02: Am I Normal?”
Journey to Freedom S01E01: Throw ‘Em The Money
I love how they implemented trains in Japan. You can almost go anywhere you want as long as you have the time to do so. Places like the sandy beaches of Izu, or the lush forests of Tanzawa are my favorites to visit. It’s that convenient. However, there are still times when having a carContinue reading “Journey to Freedom S01E01: Throw ‘Em The Money”
Windows 8 Upgrade Experience
I have always been, and will always be, an early adopter. It’s something I take pride in. Other people may call us(people like me) lab rats, or experimental mice, but that doesn’t stop us from buying/testing products once they get released. Most of the time this way of thinking pays off in huge quantities: iPad,Continue reading “Windows 8 Upgrade Experience”
Pet Peeve: Incessant “Facebookers”
First Scenario: Imagine yourself at a restaurant. You are with your loved one enjoying a nice conversation. Then your food arrives. (Snap, upload). The scent of the food whets your appetite. (phone buzzes) You take a bite. Yumm… Pure pleasure… (sound of the keyboard). You ask him/her how their day was. (phone buzzes and getsContinue reading “Pet Peeve: Incessant “Facebookers””
The 7:30 AM alarm rang. With eyes closed I used my hands to look for the oppressive object. I grabbed it and desperately pushed some buttons to make it, and the fire alarm sound it was making, stop. I somehow noticed that the room was slightly dimmer than usual. I opened my eyes, looked aroundContinue reading “Id”
Chocolat Milk Tea
It’s one of those days again where I’m craving for some new drink. This time though, I wanted something light on calories. Perusing the shelves, I found this tetra fella here, the last of its kind. It says non-fat, low-calorie chocolate milk tea drink. Actually, I stopped reading after low-calorie and chocolate. The surprising thingContinue reading “Chocolat Milk Tea”
March 25, 2012. I woke up to a steady beam of sunlight on my face. I had unintentionally left Luffy and his crew(curtain patterns) separated before going to bed, and this morning, I paid the price for that mistake. I extended my right arm onto the outskirts of my bed and felt a familiar hardContinue reading “Picasso”
Did they put something in the water? My friend, Grace, is leaving Japan for good. And I’m going to miss her a lot. We met at a snowboarding trip last year, 2011. It’s always hard when friends leave. Because whether you like it or not, they leave a hole, a void in your heart thatContinue reading “Grace”
I just happen to stumble upon this new drink from Asahi Beverages. It’s basically coffee, but white. It’s creamier than normal coffee, but packs in more kcal per 100 grams. Again, why do we need white coffee? Teeth stains?
