Selamat Datang, Danny. I have to say, your blog and life journey really inspires me.
Ah yes, perfect place to be obliterated by diabetes and sweetness!
"Children, feed me your trash."
Books and books everywhere! My kind of heaven!
Such an interesting name. I think it's rather creative that someone chose "Mozart" as bakery name instead of musical one. Perhaps this is a reference to Austrian sweet delicacy.
Look at this strange bunny-like and bread-like creature. It looks so confused. I want ten of it.
Such a beautiful and memorable sign!
I play tons of instruments because of extracurricular activities throughout my school year, except high school. But if there's one instrument I still play and love, it would be guitar from my classic guitar lesson. I used to play ensemble in group, though, so playing by myself now feels a little lonely.
Cool shop front! It will be very easy for customer to remember and recognise the shop.
This reminds me of Nakajima from RAVE, LOL. Only less creepy.
Such a cute sign!
"I have no idea what im doing".
Japanese schools seems so nice :3
When will Eijiclock appears? :3 it will be awesome!
That looks so neat! It's interesting to know the process, in case one day I will get a job on thorough branding of a company, including for companies' vehicle.
Love the outfit!
A Kanata Smart Doll soon?
Wahhh these are such cute socks! I want at least 5 pairs of them but I know I won't probably use them because they are too cute... I wonder whether it's okay to wear them underneath a pair of serious-looking Oxford or something.
Who is this girl?
Hi, I've been buying coffee beans in Jupiter Coffee and Tea and until now, I wasn't able to pick up the term she uses everytime the personnel asks me if I want it ground (or I believe this is what she asks me). After I gave her a blank expression, she will asks me if for paper filter and I'll just answer yes and then she will proceed with the grinding of coffee beans. Would you mind telling me some of the terms possible for grind?
Thank you! and by the way, nice blog here and photos! :)
And I am one of those who is quite a coffee lover
is that an iplehouse YID erica?
Am I the only person who somehow always gets hungry whenever I see photos of Japanese street? My mind jumps to Japanese food already.
Looks like another great event :) Great stuff as always Danny! Can't wait to go to Japan one day and attend Culture Japan Night! http://kquotes.com/
pedo bear i'm warning u. u stay out of this one or else... motivational quotes
Thank you for sharing your experience so sincerely with us. Its been a great example and motivator for me. =)
She's so cute!! The characters are so creative, I love their designs specially Haruka's nwn!!
Somehow I'm getting interested in Mirai, most probably due to the artistic sense, and the drawings :D I'm really keen to know what is this type of art known as ? The drawing done by IKKYUU, where my comment tag on. (The deform style, using diatonic colouring, with thick black line.. is there a name for this type of art?)
Dear Danny Choo,
I am referring to your comment below: 'We also interview the man in charge of everything too. He said off camera that while they are rolling more of these out in Japan, they are looking into taking this technology overseas too.
If you are interested then let me know and I'll hook you up with him!'
I am a student from Germany, currently working on a consulting project for a medium sized German company and identifying potential new business opportunities. One would be to enter the underground bicycle parking system, as we think the company has some core competencies it could apply to this new business area. Also, the underground bicycle parking system is almost not available in Europe yet, although market interest might be there.
Thus, I would really like to know whether you could provide me with some additional information (as to whether plans for going overseas exist) or even provide the contact details of the man in charge?
Thank you in advance and warm regards from Germany!
Are there plans for 2nd grade kanji?
wait, this is real time?! the hand and the device on the hand is WRONG!
Can she plzzzzzz be made into a smart doll? I would buy like 500 of those...
Oh I'm so looking forward to moving to Japan! Question for anyone reading, do you know where I could find a directory of Kyudo dojos in or near Tokyo? When I look it up no listings are shown...

I have been reading your blog for about 2 years ago when i was looking for material to stimulate my Japanese learning. Had always like the language but some how when i reached lower intermediate I can't seem to get it to go further. After a while, I wasn't following your blog as I was caught up busy with studies for a MSc. and learning Japanese was put into a back burner. However , recently in one of my trip back to Malaysia, I saw Mirai @ Kinokuniya and also at the PLUS toll highway and started reading again.
What I would like to say is Thank You for sharing your life story here with such openness and sincerity. I find myself coming back to read your story when I am stuck with my own business or when I need to push a new idea.
I look forward to meet you one day either in Malaysia or if you are around Hong Kong.
yal blind this is the real cutie
Danny san, what your company adress ? Where I can find it ? We have something for you.
i feel really sad for all those people who died in that earthquake:,(
some one pls tell me she doesn't look like hatsune miku, if only she had turquois hair and a mike they would look exactly alike
I at first thought that they were actually siblings too but it turns out their not
This is my dream.......!!!!!!!!!!
A riddle within an enigma trapped inside a box
hahaha, the mask for that mascot can definitely scare someone if they've never seen something like that before.
Because I have an aversion to insects, I can't really look at the creativity and talent that went behind that piece. Well, I really like it, but it doesn't give me warm and fuzzy feelings inside.
haha, an inhabited island of figure samples. I may have to go sailing once in a blue moon.
Whoa. For such a sweet and young looking face, she is quite the busty gal.
Whoa - that's a lot of dakimakuras.
For the longest time, I actually wondered when and who would do figures of the K-On! girls. To my pleasant surprise, it is my favorite figure company ALTER. I watched 5 minutes of K-On! and lost interest due to being easily distracted at the moment. I think these are really beautiful figures of the girl and Ritsu would make a very sought after figure if they chose to make her.
I thought her name was "Colete", but no biggie. I am a big fan of Tony Taka's artwork and naturally gravitate towards any figures that has his art on it. I also don't mind a little bit of ecchi to go and add some variety to the collection as long as the sculpt is excellent for me. I saw this picture and immediately needed to have her. I can't wait to get my preorder in for this beauty.
While I'll probably get both, I definitely prefer the cannon version. I think this new sword version is very nice albeit not all that original.
I have never wanted a Miku figure than now. I already own nendoroids, a WF figma preordered and will have both versions of GSC's scaled Miku versions. I am particularly tired of all the Miku stuff around, but this is so damn gorgeous that I'd be stupid not to get it. I also like this womanly version of her as well as the kick ass pose. I only hope that it gets a timely release unlike Karas who just recently became ready for preorder despite production and announcement span.
Very cute keychain. Don't have an I-phone yet, so I am completely oblivious to having apps.
I'm new to all of this as well, so I hope that I got it down.
This figure is reaaaaaaally cute. I don't know if I'll end up getting her (immediately anyways). I'm so weak to ruffles.
LMAO!?!!?!?!?!? The expression in your face is just priceless. You look like someone had just said something ridiculously stupid and you couldn't hold in the laughter anymore.
My husband used to be really big into MegaTokyo. Like Reltair, he hasn't read it in awhile. Makes you wonder O.o
This totally sucks - I submitted a comment and *poof* /end rant
I wholeheartedly agree with that mech being really gorgeously done. I am really interested in building and painting kits, so seeing works of art such as that really inspires me to go and pour in my heart and soul into these things. I attended a kit building event and it was such a refreshing and exciting experience to get educated on this facet of the hobby.
I really dig the Batman costume. If that was handmade, I'd have to say he did a stellar job with it.
Here's hoping my comment does not disappear.
If I lived in Japan, I think I'd seriously be spending a lot of money on food, goods and entertainment.
mmmmmmmm. All that food looks delicious.
Did you play around with her bangs so it could be styled like that? Out of all the dolfies out there, Saber is the one I want the most. If I could, I would go and buy all of the dolfies. Chun is a really talented seamstress. I'm not big into dolls, but I would love to try and sew some outfits for some in the future.
I've been seriously collecting for a good 3.5 mos on it's way to 4. I have at least 132 figures. I have 12 fully paid preordered items. I plan on preordering/buying at least 30 various figures that are coming up or have been announced this year. On top of that, there will be a local sale of figs at my shop and who knows how much I will spend there.
Notable figs to give you a rough estimation of how much I've spent on my collection:
Alter Black Lagoon Revy
Goodsmile Company Crouching Rider
Max Factory Narusegawa Naru swimsuit
FREEing 1/4 Mikuru, Haruhi and Kyon's sister just to name a few.
AND figures aren't even my main main passion - it's videogames.
She is a definite cutie, but I prefer her older sister. She reminds me of Max Factory's Kureha, but only happier.
Very sexy, indeed. So, the pictures don't lie. I'm glad to know that the prototype of her is pretty much identical to the actual release version. I can't wait to get mine next.
It's very hard to find a spacious apartment without paying an arm and a leg for it. I live in a 1-bedroom apartment and it sucks. Everything from the management to the neighbors just bites.
Krispy Kreme used to be popular in California. I remember when they first came back and everyone wanted to eat them. They were akin to Starbucks; if you were going to eat doughnuts it had to be Krispy Kreme. Lately, I don't see that many any more and a number of them have actually closed shop.
You just have to try their glaze doughnuts. I'm not a big fan of doughnuts, but their glaze is absolutely to die for.
