    I think the reason why this kind of scheme works in SG and HK and actually encourages women to work full-time is because the cost of hiring a live-in maid is only a small fraction of the household salary (around 50-80,000 yen per month I believe). At 8,300 yen per 3 hours in Japan, I doubt this scheme will become as widespread.

    Being the youngest woman in our male-dominated office has made me a target for sexual harassment especially when there is alcohol involved. I don’t really mind when they talk about women, make green jokes (I’m immune to that kind of talk), compliment my appearance, or ask about my relationship status, but I feel uncomfortable when it’s too much and particularly directed at me. For instance, a drunken co-worker had offered to take me home. In another case, one of my supervisors grabbed me by the waist and tried to lift me playfully (and he wasn't even drunk). In those cases, I politely yet firmly told them off and they haven’t bugged me since.

    Turkish Airlines -The food is great -They provide complimentary hotel accommodations for long layovers -They have kinda fancy amenity kits (like Chopard or Furla) -Their seats are wide -Their cabin attendants look unapproachable though (difficult to get their attention and they rarely smile) but that's alright

    Worst: most low-cost carriers (can't really complain though, you get what you pay for)

    @zaldaus: Actually, the Philippine authorities issued lots of warnings, and more than 800,000 were evacuated before the super typhoon. The thing is, even some evacuation centers could not withstand the Category 5 super typhoon. Haiyan weakened to a Category 1 storm when it reached Vietnam so there is really no comparison.

    Straight teeth, something you rarely see in Japan.

    Straight and white at that! A rarity indeed!

    I really don't get some Japanese men's fascination with used underwear. Someone stole mine too and there were a few people who blamed me for hanging them out to dry. Uhm...

    An old drunk stinky pervert man groped me in the train during evening rush hour in Tokyo but I was disgusted enough to navigate my way through the crowd and move to the next car. And when I saw him following me, I alighted at the next stop and rode a different train. Yes, it's possible to defend yourself. I knew that I couldn't expect anything from my oblivious stone-faced fellow commuters. I do commend this brave young kid for doing what he did. We need more people like him.

    Big deal! I don't mind simple compliments about my appearance or what I'm wearing, but I do feel uncomfortable with sexually inappropriate comments.

    I feel so much safer here even if I've experienced being groped a couple of times while walking home. In my country, I wouldn't even dare go out on the streets late at night.

    Yes please! At least on weekends. The last time I missed my last train (by just a minute or two), I had to wander around Shibuya and eventually settle somewhere (by myself, gasp!) until the first train. Cab fare to my place costs around 20,000 yen so I didn't really have a choice. I'm sure a lot of people have gone through the same ordeal.

    I go there to charge for a bit when my phone battery runs out (darn you, iPhone5!). Oh, but I do order at least 200 yen worth of food.

    I wouldn't eat here unless I have a choice on how much rice and salmon roe they give me in the first place.

    I've never celebrated Valentine's Day in a romantic way, it's more about me hanging out with fellow single girl friends and giving my mom flowers. But even when I was in a relationship, we didn't celebrate it, we kinda just laughed about it saying that it's overrated.

    What the... it's illegal to dance in Japan?! I go clubbing at least once a month and dance all night until the first train, so I guess that makes me a criminal. How about making out on the dance floor instead, is that illegal too?

    Mr. Uemura's life sounds like hell. I guess that's what you get for cheating on your wife (and getting caught).

    Incorrect usage of "basically", "technically" and "actually". I hear so many people who bombard their sentences with these words even though it's inappropriate. Another one I dislike is "no offense but... insert something totally offensive" Yeah, like I'm supposed to not be offended just because you started with that phrase!
