Liquid Sugar and Freeze-dried Coffee

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.

Japanese TV looks freaking hilarious... and based off the few clips of shows I've seen on YouTube I think it would be awesome if they added a Japanese channel in on our basic cable package.

Hehe. Yeah that would be cool to get on your TV. I just wish I could get subtitles here darnit! Ugh..
