I'm still not sure how they make 'Blendy' and 'Maxim' instant coffee here, in Japan. And it's the first time I've seen people buy liquid, syrupy sugar for their drinks. I don't think it's sold in the States...hmm. We usually buy Blendy, but it's amazing how expensive all of those instant coffee brands are!
Good news for me today! I found a missing earring while I was cleaning and reassembling the bed coverings and such. よかった！
I usually don't want Japanese television too much, at least when I'm by myself during the day. I just can't understand Japanese at the regular speed! I'm able to pick up words and simple phrases, but at this point, I'd love to have subtitles. I do have some favorite shows though. Actually, what I like is anything with my favorite ”お笑い” (owarai) duo called "Downtown", which features Hitoshi Matsumoto and Masatoshi Hamada.
