Dessert 
110A1426_1024-11.jpg

The reason I went back to my home town was to attend my late mother's second anniversary.
We went to her cemetery park and had lunch together.

This is the dessert decorated with Japanese maple leaf.

Izakaya Sumodori 
110A1383_1024-11.jpg

Izakaya is general term of Japanese style pub.
Izakaya by Wikipedia

Sumodori is this shop's unique name combined with Sumo(Japanese wrestling) and Tori(bird).
Somewhat, the owner must be a fan of Sumo wrestling.
They even say Beaujolais Nouveau has arrived.

This place locates near Kasugabaru railway station, Fukuoka, where is my home town.

I hope WHOPPER will be same size and same quality of the beef in the States!

Unfortunately, this shop will be located at near the entrance of departure floor, Tan Son Nhat International airport.
So you can't casually get there by bikes.

Chicken noodles from landlord 


Because landlords are adding 2 more floors to increase rooms to rent,
it's been quite noisy for last 6 weeks.

They must have thought they had to do something to avoid tenants complaining
about construction noise.
The landlords had cooked noodles for tenants on Sunday last three to four weeks.


This is soy source based chicken noodles (Mi Ga).
It was a bit greasy as lunch but quite tasty.

My keyboard 
110A0737_1024bk-10.jpg

It's Japanese keyboard.
I liked English keyboard before but only 1 key stroke got me changed.

English keyboard takes 2 keys to set Japanese input mode.
Japanese keyboard only takes 1 key to set it.
Off course I may be able to assign function to the specific key but Japanese keyboard has 1 additional key to set Japanese input mode.


I still like English keyboard from the design point of view.
It is simpler and easy to look.

Big or tall? 
tumblr_l8mm9mVuGM1qz9qooo1_1280.jpg

I read Japanese news site,
http://topics.jp.msn.com/wadai/searchina/article.aspx?articleid=492340
and interested about "nose".

This is about culture shock about Japan from the blog post of Ricky
- Japanese men compliment women by saying “You have a small face” or “You have a big nose”. The first time somebody said to me I had a big nose I actually thought he was trying to offend me. As you may know, many Americans (women and even some men) get a “nose job” (plastic surgery to get a smaller nose). Opposite cultures!

I enjoyed reading her post.

In above Japanese news site, they translated that American had complex about taller nose and some even wanted to have plastic surgery for lower nose.


When Japanese compliment about nose, we say "HANA GA TAKAI DESUNE".
This means you have a tall or prominet nose compare to we Asian tend to have rather button shaped nose.
I think when we use "HANA GA TAKAI", it does not mean "big nose".

To me, HANA GA TAKAI and BIG NOSE do not seem to fit well.
So what is the best way to compliment?
Tall nose,
long nose,
prominent nose,
beautiful nose or
better not to use nose to compliment?

By the way, I personally like Scarlett Johansson's nose.
