With my non-tattooed, chiselled, hairless body and 1.8m height I would be a shoo-in if I make a reservation and show up. But I'm not interested as I can't afford to eat there.

Boris Johnson has a lot to answer for. I hope the BREXIT thing will go the same way as the recent Scotland leaving the UK referendum - stay in UK and stay in Europe.

The mere mention of 'Osaka Obasan' makes me chuckle as I've heard from Tokyo and even Tohoku ladies about how these Osakan ladies are by nature. The feeling is not all negative as I've always like the Japanese ladies being forthright and to the point instead of being overly polite, no beating about the bush. I have but one question for anyone here, 'Is it true far too many of them like to wear tiger print clothing? That will be hilarious! Roar!!

Just for info, 'Kansai' sounds like 'kanasai', which in the hokkien dialects in Taiwan, Singapore & Fukien province of China means 'like shit'. Don't think a name change is needed as Kyoto, Osaka areas are drawing in the Chinese tourists.

Making big physical movements while consuming that stacked-up hamburger, including getting up to get more sachets of chilly sauce and tomato sauce, I registered quite hefty step-counts and calorie usage. That coke top-up and 3 trips to the top-up counter helped too. I'll be healthy in no time!

Djokovic said the men should be fighting to get more. My view is more from the sponsors, not at the expense of the women. It is up to the women to fight for more, from the same sponsors. It is not a zero sum game. If Rolex wants to increase their sponsorship amount for the men, it is up to the women to fight for their own increase. This is not a gender issue, it is a sponsorship issue.

I was just mentioning this factoid to my J wife. She has no opinion about this. I'm really surprised by the anti-Hillary ones who called her 'Hitlery'. I mean, come on, these online hate! I find Trump rather obnoxious but if Americans want to vote him as GOP candidate, he must have something they like about him. My take is he will 'break some rules' to deal with ISIS, North Korea & China unlike the rule-obeying previous Presidents. The end justify the means, especially on North Korea and China.

For such a long time I've been coming to Japan and not bothered about reclaiming the consumption tax when buying stuff to take back home. If there will be an increase to 10%, I will have 2 choices:
1. Not coming to Japan for holidays; 2. Seriously finding out about how to reclaim the 10%.

In my humble opinion, Australia should go for the Japanese Soryu class submarines. Asia-Pacific countries like Australia & Japan, together with the USA needs to stand up to China's 'bullying' tactics & what better way than to have Japan build their submarines and cooperate with them militarily. Japan has a lot to offer and Australia should grab it with both hands.

This should not have been announced. Quietly go about setting up such units. Japan cannot afford to be naive even in passive operations of intelligence gathering in foreign lands.

So, by not wanting to talk about it, not wanting to participate in the UN tribunal & ignoring the future findings of the tribunal, everybody wakes up one day and realized that those many islands in the South China Sea are in fact part of China? Somehow this reminds me of how a school bully behaves.
