Akihabara – 18/12/09

December 19, 2009

Went for a wander down to Akihabara today and here is what i saw:


New Tatsuta burger at McDonalds. Tastes SO GOOD!


FFXIII Elixir limited edition pack with a….thermos? i think. Something tells me they don`t keep their elixir in cans or a thermos in the game…I think the potion they were selling at crisis core launch was alot cooler.


FFXII lightning edition. Here`s what it looks like :


Damn that`s nice


And to end it , a nice shot of the main strip.


What earthquake?

December 18, 2009

So, i woke up this morning to the news that an earthquake hit while i was asleep. On closer inspection by the time it reached Tokyo it was only a magnitude of 1-2. That`s what i get for sleeping in abit longer than normal.

Yes, I am here

December 17, 2009

I`m sorry it took me so long to put up a post, but i was kinda waiting for the time when i had some good news to deliver. Sadly, this is not true, but i thought i better make a post anyway.

Basically i have been here since the 31st of october and i still don`t have a job. I do have some private english tuition lined up, but no where near enough to be able to live off.

I`m not too sure what is going to happen or what i am going to do about the situation. I have been visiting Gaijinpot every day but no such luck with any responses from companies. Yesterday i emailed…oh…15 or so english conversational schools in Tokyo. Running out of ideas.

Hopefully i can make another blog post in a couple of days with some good news…

Here are some photos to maybe put a lighter mood on this post :

5 days to go…

October 26, 2009

5 days until I step onto a plane and head off to Japan. I’m not really that worried about it to be honest. I’m slightly worried about finding and job and a place to live, of course! Who wouldn’t be? Getting everything sorted out is quite stressful. I guess just trying to haul yourself over to another country in a suitcase isn’t the easiest thing in the world to do.

So, I know it’s been over a month since I made that intial post but I really didn’t see the need in making any posts until I was in Japan, snapping photos and seeing new things, having something worthwhile to blog about. A few things have happened over the past month:

1) I quit my job
2) I got my working holiday visa
3) i bought the tickets

So yeah. That’s it from me for the moment. I’ll be up in Japan starting Saturday night! Wish me luck!


This is a random photo taken by my girlfriend from our window. Zoom on my camera is insane.

Blogging with a purpose

September 29, 2009

I have had blogs before, if that isn’t completely obvious. And yes, I have tried doing it with a purpose before as well. I guess I have a proper subject that I would kind of like to chronicle myself anyways. I have been keeping a hard copy diary for a couple of weeks now and have fallen in love with scrawling down my insane ramblings all over again.

SO, this time i will be trying something abit different. I’m going to be ATTEMPTING to have a kind of diary/blog/thing-a-majig chronicling (is that a word, and if it is, is that the right way to spell it?) my attempt at living in Japan. Anyway, not really gonna talk about anything today…

Bye all! We’ll see where this goes, if anywhere…
