China could not find anything negative about Japan in Africa, so all they can do is vaguely mention events of WWII.

The wife & I love Narita for the 'farewell Japanese meal' in the nice restaurants before flying home after a wonderful stay in Tokyo. Haneda is for arriving in Tokyo and quickly getting to the hotel.

Let's not begrudge the PM of Japan or any other world leaders for that matter, the availability of a backup plane. This can be prearranged to be at the departure airport, just sitting there if needed. Once the official plane takes off without problem, the lease on the backup plane expires.

Bak Kut Teh is a popular Chinese dish here in Singapore but it is NOT a Singaporean-Malay dish. It is basically pork with bones cooked till very soft & served in soya or pepper-based soup & eaten with white rice. Malays are Muslim and they do not eat pork at all.

What is wrong with having a GB team with Welsh, Irish, Scottish & English players? If these countries are against it, then Swansea & Cardiff should leave the EPL. One slightly good Wales performance in the Euro2016 & people like Coleman thinks they should have their cake and eat it. Don't forget they lost to lousy England.

I believe the Japanese hostages are the JICA aid workers who are in Bangladesh working on a transportation project. Latest news from elsewhere has indicated the 20 who died are mostly Japanese & Italians. They may have been there in two separate groups. Do not be surprised if the Japanese Government withdraw from the project. The head of JICA was interviewed on NHK news and he expressed sadness and anger that this has happened to people who are there to work on aid projects in Bangladesh.

I watched Nishikori beat Benneteau but could not help wondering why he had to break up with Ai-chan. It would have been nice to see her in the stands....

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!
