I’m still alive oh.
Recently, I’ve had nothing to update because my life is pretty much the same and nothing much different is going on. I have not had time to go explore Japan much and neither have I had much interesting stuff to write about. So I’ve been silent!
But I see that there have been some frequent visits by some people so I think I should do my job and actually share something.
So, in case you aren’t aware, my most interesting activity right now is basically trying out food from convenience store (loving termed combini food). They are all on my Instagram @DforDirtyShoes under Combini Galore highlight. So you can check it out if you’re interested.
The thing is, combini food isn’t that bad but I feel that its too expensive for my liking. A pasta is easily around 500yen, which is almost S$7. 😦 I’m sure you’ll agree with me because Wanton Mee and Chicken Rice in SG costs a mere S$5 at most. Sigh. Why, Japan, why?
Another interesting thing I’ve found out is that although most of the stuff in Japan is more expensive than in SG, restaurant wise for a night out is cheaper, thanks to cheaper alcohol. I just spent a night out in Shibuya at a Okinawan cuisine restaurant and all of us had 1 main (around 800yen each, which is super affordable for restaurant food) and a few side dishes, plus 2 – 3 drinks each and in the end, it cost us around S$32 per person. That’s super affordable, isn’t it? Plus, there’s no nonsense 10% service charge in Japan. So, YAY.
So, tomorrow is once again, MONDAY! It’s a public holiday in Japan and I’m not working. I’m just going to stay huddled up at home playing Octopath so GJH isn’t ahead of me by so much. He’s obviously been playing it MUCH more than I do.
By the way, the weather has been turning cooler these two weeks. It’s starting to feel so refreshing and nice with temperatures around low to mid 20s on some days. It’s such a different feeling to walk out of the house in the morning and it’s definitely something I loveeee the most in Japan.
It feels really nice checking in here once in a while for a quick recap of my life. And to you, my few loyal readers, thanks for still visiting and reading! I’ll go find some interesting stuff to share about soon, I promise. 😉
