Hi Danny. Its just that somehow hearing your stories makes me feel like founding myself.
I am also a Malaysian, and also interested in the anime industry. I really admired you, being someone from my nation finding success over there. I just feel that maybe I do also have a chance.
About the [comfort zone] and [living in someone else life], that was really well said from you, because it almost relates everything about my past.
I find your stories really inspiring to read, and that I thought that if one day I made it to Japan, I should be looking out for you to say "Thanks." ^wwww^

Nice article! Coffee is getting more and more popular in Japan. If you're still looking for a place to get good coffee beans, check out this coffee map map.abccoffee.co. It ranks good coffee shops in Japan according to Instagram. You can find one near you.
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?
All hail Lunamaria Hawke!
I saw the first itasha in Akihabara, in front of the K-Books building, on Oct 11! http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.452734761437664.98637.167163943328082&type=1&l=6f3a3099b4
Yes, really. I kid you not.
Anyway the resemblance between the actual subject and metaphor is uncanny.
Just a bit of local Singaporean trivia:
To 'merlion' is slang for projectile vomiting especially in the context of having had too much (alcohol) to drink.
Glad you had a better experience this time - esp w the Sg MSM than the last time!
Come back again soon!
Oneecon is HAWT. Yuri oneecon is HAWTER.
Hope to see this storyline continued.
As Danny said, cartilage is any kind of soft bone.
For nankotsu, the most commonly used part is the caudal end of the sternum which is the lowest part of the keel (or carina) labelled as (6) in the following anatomy chart:
I love nankotsu too. As well as kawa (skin) and heart.
I believe that's called NIMBY.
Will pass on this and save the money for the glory that is Kawashima Ami.
Cinema gits needs to be fixed like the way they were in the Kara no Kyoukai pre-screen puppet shows. LOL
Nurse Witch Komugi-chan to the rescue?
Or will it be more like Venus Versus Virus?
Same reason. (And not Gundam pla-mo :P)
The Eleventh Commandment: Thou shall not get caught. ;-)
JPY 7-8,000 isn't that steep (though it has been going up) especially when compared to the insane prizes that are charged for Limited Edition R2s. (Still feeling the pain of Evangelion 1.01 LE)
Yeah, we needed MOAR details of beer.
The big question is... will her pantsu be shima shima?
The pose, detailing, sculpt in general are great but I agree that it gave me the feeling of 'not Yoko at all' - definitely prefer the anime version and will be giving this one a miss.
Like the Haruhi gekisou set, bands of four (with instruments) are such an evil marketing ploy to GET THE WHOLE SETTO.
Aoi hana FTW.
Manga and doujin can weigh a ton. Sending stuff back home via packages will cost a little more on top of the purchases but it gives you added float and more luggage space for figures.
I agree completely!!
I was just reminded of that screen from Robocop where the other executives fled the toilet after the evil EVP entered. One of them pee-ed on his own pants in his haste to get away. How will one escape if one is kneeling?? Haha!
Speaking of hospitals, what is quite disturbing are reports of Japanese hospitals turning away people with fevers: http://mdn.mainichi.jp/mdnnews/national/news/20090505p2a00m0na003000c.html?inb=rs
I understand hospitals need to take precautions but if they don't help sick people, who are patients going to turn to?
I'm not into dollfies in general but agree that Saber always looks good. Her alter version is simply exquisite and quite haunting in a good sort of way.
I fully second Chibichibiusa's comment on RightStuf.com - they licensed titles (e.g. MariMite under Nozomi Entertainment) that I enjoy very much and I find their box sets (esp when on sale) to be very good value for money.
Not to be a wet blanket or anything but I vaguely remember reading in Anthony Bourdian's Kitchen Confidential something to the effect that if you have money to lose, the thing to do is to open a restaurant. Lots of upfront costs (venue, COD terms for supplies, labour, HSE compliance etc.) which means the operation has to generate cash from the get go. But I'm sure you'll figure it all out, execute beautifully and look forward to visiting your restaurant during my next Japan trip! :D
