The most popular song

Looking at many various Japanese sites, this song top the chart.
It's Nishino Kana's latest single "Sayonara". I really like this single.
And I found this version, I thought I'd share with you!! ^^


安堂ロイド〜A.I. knows LOVE?〜

I'm a bit slow, then again I'm busy these days.
I have anticipated this drama, I mean it has been 10 years since we saw Kimutaku and Shibasaki Kou starring in the same drama! That says it all.
The story is somewhat interesting, the further we go into the drama the better I hope ^^
Anyway, I think this character suits Kimutaku!! Happy watching :)

Title: 安堂ロイド〜A.I. knows LOVE?〜 (Ando Lloyd〜A.I. knows LOVE?〜)
Episodes: TBA
Broadcast network: TBS
Broadcast period: 2013-Oct-13 - 
Air time: Sunday 21:00
Theme song:

Matsushima Reiji is a genius physicist who studies wormhole theories. One day, Reiji is killed. It is unknown whether his research on wormhole theories caused his death or not. His fiance Ando Asahi is a capable career woman working at a large IT company. After Reiji's death somebody is trying to kill her. Lloyd, who looks exactly like her dead fiance Reiji, suddenly appears in front of her. Lloyd came from the year 2113. His mission is to protect Asahi from any harm. Without Asahi's knowledge, Lloyd fights to protect her. Lloyd doesn't know what "love" is and doesn't understand human anger or sadness. At first, Asahi doesn't like Lloyd, but slowly her feelings is starting to change.

Suicide slide!?

I'm not 100% sure if this is a montage or for real.
But seriously it made me laugh as well as cry.
If you have seen Asian movies, or other movies for that matter, there have been a lot of people taking their own lives from a rooftop.
Well... as sad and tragic as reality is, many Asian children (students) have jumped off a roof.
And well, this is a new invention, instead of jumping you can slide off!

To be honest, I either hope there is a very deep swimming pool at the bottom of this or they just put it there while doing construction!

A new star!?

A new solo artist is about to debut. Her name is Ru/Roo/Lu, depending on how you spell it ^^
The song is called Even if you don't love me.
Even though it's a sad song, i think it's a good debut song ^^
LOENENT added English lyrics so most of you can follow with it!

Be aware

I have heard about it but never seen it for real.
Looks like JE is really taking up the game to get the scammers.
I'm both happy and sad. I mean for some people auction is the only way to get a ticket, then again, the price is outrageous!

JE posted following info on their homepage:
ARASHI Live Tour 2013 “LOVE” オークション等出品による当選取消し一覧



It basically says they found some of the people who have been trying to sell their tickets online and they will redraw them and ballot to others.
This is for Yahoo Auctions, one of the big sites in Japan, like JP Ebay.
In this list they have stated the auction id and sellers name (two first letters).
And the tickets are for Nagoya, Sapporo and Osaka venue.

If you have purchased from yahoo, you might want to take a look.

Love Concert Goods

The goods list is out.. or it has been popping up here and there online.
Not sure where it came from, because I couldn't find any info on JE yet and I have not received a FC mail either... But it looks kinda normal ^^ Anyway, will see if this is the real list....

This year I will go myself, I'm interested in uchiwa, T-shirt, penlight (just for the concert), bracelet, bag, towel, pouch and hankerchief.
Then again, it all depends on the design ^^

I posted a preview of this song earlier this autumn, then I totally forgot about the whole song.
Anyway, not too bad, as it was released on Youtube a few days ago!
What can I say? What isn't there to love ^^

Enjoy some awesome Danish music!!

Kato, Safri Duo and Björnskov!

Today's quote

"Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it." –George Santayana


This video is entertaining, it shows how much effort the boys pit into the choreography!
I think it's amazing and a good way to show how much the practice ^^

Happy Tuesday everybody ;)

Probably should but...

Today at work I realized I need to learn Finnish.
At work I use Danish, English, Norwegian, and Swedish, however I'm missing Finnish.
The major reason is, the language is totally different and I don't think it's beautiful at all.
However for my work nowadays I really need it. And my co-worker told me to learn it ^^

In a way if I would know Finnish it would open doors to work, I mean, if learning, I'd be able to speak all Nordic languages.

But well... can I?
And when? I guess is the big question!

And these just fit perfect in this autumn season ^^

You and me preview

I found this on YT and well.. I'm excited already.
I so want this album!

Shane Filan is one of my fave artists, I think he's an amazing singer and I was so sad the day Westlife announced their departure.
Well.. it took some time but I can smile again!

Here's the preview of his upcoming album "You and me"!!
It's released on Nov 4! Let the countdown begin ^^

Beautiful morning

Yesterday morning just before I headed out for work I looked out over our balcony and took this snap shot.
I think it was a beautiful morning, to see the sun be on its way still most of the sky was still overtaken by the very early morning.

It's October, what can I say? ^^

Today's quote

So much I want to little time

Today I talked to a Danish friend of mine. And in the end she asked me when I'll visit Copenhagen again.
I will do a transfer there for a few hours but well, to stay in the city.
I wish I could asap. But it cost money and time, which I do not really have.
Autumn is here, so I guess it's kinda similar to Stockholm.

I do miss the summer weather, having delicious foods and drinks in Nyhavn.

I miss my second Nordic home....

 I hope for Spring to arrive fast ^^
I need a doze of the Danish capital!!

Money money money ^^

It's not like I'm poor, I mean, it's the end of the month and I have had less pennies in my bank account. But as I paid my Tokyo trip, I'm a lot shorter than I thought I'd be...
But well, it's 25th!! And we all know what that means ^^ the paycheck is here!!

I shouldn't use too much as I need to save for Tokyo.
But I want to spend some, maybe a good bottle of wine!
Will see after work ^^

DJ got us....

It's Friday everybody, and what fits better than this song?
It's a TTS and EXO collab!
This is from 2012, still... no matter how old it is!
Let's get this weekend started ^^

まだ涙にならない悲しみが / 恋は匂へと散りぬるを

Kinki kids is back with a new single, a double a-side! It's called まだ涙にならない悲しみが / 恋は匂へと散りぬるを.
It's the first in over a year!! ^^
I really like the sound of it, and I almost forgot about double Domoto! So I'm happy they reminded me ^^
Both songs are about lost love, and despite the sad theme, what can I say? It's KinKi Kids so it's good! Thanks for reminding me about your music!!


01. Mada namida ni naranai kanashimi ga
02. Koi wa nioi e to chirinuruwo

Best sales ever!!

Yesterday Arashi's new album "LOVE"  went on sale! And guess what?
ARASHI is No.1 on the Oricon Best-selling Album Chart! With 327,985 copies sold on the first day! This is their highest first day sale ever!
So happy for them, one of those 327,985 copies is mine ^^

Cannot wait for their upcoming tour ^^

Congrats boys!!!

I'm saying

I'm currently following the Korean drama, The Heirs, starring Park Shin-Hye and Lee Min-Ho.
It's a little bit like BOF, still different. And well.. PSH is a much better actress ^^
Anyway, I really like this OST song, so I thought I'd share it :)

And I found with Eng sub, so I didn't have to translate it myself ^^


Surprise call!

Yesterday afternoon as I was preparing some stuff, I got a phone call from M unni in Japan!
I haven't talked to her since I stayed at her house in Chiba!
I was really happy to hear from her, but I wish her health was better.
Despite that it was fun to talk to her, and I hope she will get better, it would be really nice to see her in Japan this time too.

Time will tell.

She also encouraged me that Arashi's coming my way, and I should think about that whenever feeling down. It really made me happy as well as I hope she will get better.

Well..well.. It was a very long and great call!!
Hope to talk to her again... SOON ^^

Today's quote

"The words we speak today could be the words we eat tomorrow.. we better make them sweet!"

Once again

A few weeks ago we heard about the group of teenage boys who were acquitted from raping a girl.
Only because she didn't fight them or shout for help!

Today the news hit that a boy had made a secret sex tape with his former gf, teenagers, then posted it online. The girl wanted him prosecuted for violation of indignity.
But our higher court lowered the damages to almost nothing!
It's like a joke! What's happening to our courts?

Then again, girls and women, this is maybe our future.

Get dressed in a short skirt = Come and rape me
Not shout or fight back when someone is raping you = You are not against it and there for wants it
Someone make a sex tape with you starring it without your knowledge then post it online = Sex and social media is everyday so cheer up!?

Being a female = You live with fear every day and no one is actually covering your back, you know there's always a way to get acquitted of mens' actions!

That's what it seems like, a daily life in Sweden.
I hope that Media will do good this time and get a change.
Because I do not think that Swedes agree with this!!

It's so unbelievable tragic that judges, humans, in Swedish court have made these decisions. I wonder if they lack brain?! and heart. More tragic is that they do not seem to think that their actions are the correct ones.

Sweden law... shame on you!!!

Best friend...!

I've talked a lot with one of my best friends in Japan today.
I miss her a lot and I'm looking forward to see her again!
It's so weird to see her too, I mean, we met last June and it was 2 years before we met the last time. So this time only 6 months ^^

Still like a dream...
Anyway wanna dedicate this song to her, Nishino Kana's Best friend.

Not in the mood

I so need to do my prep for upcoming exam and work prep.
But I have no power or strength to do so. It feels like I do not really care.
Well for one of them I do not care, the other one I do but I know it requires lots of thinking and evaluation, so my brain is well... not in the mood (^^;;)

I will try to do my best, maybe not today but in the near future!!

Cheer up ;)

Coming on strong

Another great Swedish singer is back with a new single.
She has been quiet for some time but here she's! Actually this song was released around a month ago, and I have totally forgot to share this... ^^
The song is called Coming on strong.

All booked

My mum decided to join me to Tokyo!
What can I say... she knows whats good ^^
So now we are have booked both flights and hotel! We are gonna stay in Shinjuku, close to the station ^^

I cannot wait! I'm one step closer!

Hey, What's up?

The lost JE boy is back... I'm talking about Akanishi Jin.
I know this PV was released a few weeks ago, but well.. Jin is not my personal interest however I stumbled upon this on Youtube so ^^
Anyway the song is kinda ... but I like the concept of it.
It also gets me going as I'm off to Tokyo within less than two months ^^

Tokyo is def. one of the best cities in the world!!

Sad moment

One of my fave US tv dramas has been THE GLADES.
And for some reason I have totally missed that it has been cancelled. I had been looking forward to a 5th season, however there will be no such! (T_T)
I mean season four ended with such a cliffhanger, like a season finally should be. But it also made me sad because it feels like it ended without a proper end!! Something is missing!
It's kinda sad and annoying!!!!

This is why I prefer Asian series, although some ends really sucks, there is an end to it!!

Kana Nishino - Sayonara

The new song from Kana-chan is a ballad, called Sayonara. It's also the theme song for tv-drama "Glass no Ie". The single also includes the song "Brand New Me", as well as the MTV Unplugged version of "Aitakute Aitakute".
I have been waiting for this so much. I hate that it was released on recochoku, as ONLY Japanese can purchase mp3s from there (The card needs to be issued in Japan)!
But I finally got it and I love this new ballad!! Great job Kana-chan ^^


01. さよなら
02. Brand New Me
03. 会いたくて 会いたくて (Live on MTV Unplugged)

Message/Call my name

BoA is back with a new Japanese single, a double a-side called Message/Call my name.
It's nice to have her back, for some reason I haven't been a huge BoA fan but lately I have taken more and more interest in her.
Both are typical BoA songs.. so I don't have too much to say to be honest.
They haven't really made an impression on me, but I do not dislike them, so I guess, two okay songs!?


01. Message
02. Call my name


As I started of with Burn... Let's continue with some lights ^^
This is also by Ellie Gouding! I think many of you recognize this song ;)
Happy Sunday ^^

Love (review)

It's finally here! Arashi's new album LOVE. I was already excited when the news came about the new album, then the other day when I found out I will be going to the concert I got even more excited!! Obviously ^^ 
So I guess I need to listen though the album a lot, more than usual ^^
I like it already. To be honest, I like this one much more than Popcorn! Although Popcorn was a good one too! 
I donno why, but the music reminds me of the 60's?! a bit, also a little SMAP like here and there. Maybe it's the age? Anyway it's fun to see them mix songs.

My fave songs are: 愛を歌おう, サヨナラのあとで, Confusion, Breathless, Rock Tonight, Endless game, Calling, and Tears.
As for solo's my fave belongs to Sho-kun, to be honest I was surprised by this song, I thought he'd do something more up-tempo like TABOO. But to get a sad love ballad is a happy surprise indeed ^^. And followed by Sho-kun we have O-chan's soloI also like Aiba-kun's 夜空への手紙. As for Nino and Matsujun's, not too sure about them... yet ^^ They are good but not as good as the other three :)

01 愛を歌おう
02 サヨナラのあとで
04 Hit the floor (Satoshi Ohno)
05 P・A・R・A・D・O・X
06 sugar and salt (Sho Sakurai)
07 Breathless
08 20825日目の曲 (Kazunari Ninomiya)
09 Rock Tonight
10 Endless Game
11 Calling
12 夜空への手紙 (Masaki Aiba)
13 Dance in the dark (Jun Matsumoto)
14 Starlight kiss
16 Tears

In the honour as I got the tickets :D :D :D

Today's quote

"Respect is not a matter of age."

No surprise

Coffee is not cheap in Sweden...
I wonder why it's like this, I mean our nation drink coffee like others drink water!
Also this is the starbucks list, but to be honest, stong currency or not. When I look at the price and compare to locals it's a joke.
As for now we only have Starbucks in a few places, and it's super expensive. I read in the newspaper yesterday that will will expand next year.
But in order to survive they need to change their prices. No one will pay $8 for a caffe latte!!
Also the starbucks mug you get buy as a souvenir, you know the big one withe the city name. In the US I think I paid $11 for it, in London £6.99 (aprox $9) however in Sweden it cost 120 sek (aprox $18). That's why I do not own a Stockholm mug XD *joke* never wanted to buy one when leaving the country and carry it around during my trips.

Still... Sweden is expensive when it comes to dining out and drink out, compare to lots of other countries.
But we do start to change, step by step, little by little.

On Cloud NINE

Today I got the email I have been dreaming about for year!!!
I got tickets for Arashi's upcoming "LOVE" tour!!! It will be my VERY first time to attend, and I got it with MY FC membership!
I'm bringing two friends with me ^^
I'm so excited and still cannot believe it.

JE said they'd announce it on Oct 17, but it came on Oct 18 right after midnight ^^

I'm going to Tokyo Dome on Dec 15!!!!!!!!!!!
Less than two months away!!

I will get to see Sho-kun live ^^

Where is it?

The result of the ballot has not been announced yet.
JE said OCT 17 but that just passed according to JP time.
Hope it comes tomorrow.
Then again, no words are good words right!?
I really want to go and see them, and if I didn't get it, I hope S-san gets them ^^
She already went to Arafes!!

The Butler

After work today, mum and I will go and watch this movie.
I'm really exited to see it, hope it's good ^^

The film begins in 2009, where an elderly Cecil Gaines recounts his life story, while waiting in the White House. Gaines was raised in a cotton plantation in the 1920s Macon, Georgia, by his sharecropping parents. One day, the farm's temperamental owner, Thomas Westfall, rapes Cecil's mother, Hattie Pearl. Cecil's father, Earl, confronts Westfall, and is shot dead. Cecil is taken in by Annabeth Westfall, the estate's caretaker, who reassigns Cecil to being a house servant instead. In his teens, he leaves behind the Westfall plantation and his mother, who has been mute since the incident. One night, Cecil breaks into a pastry shop and is, unexpectedly, hired by the owners. While working in the shop, he acquires skills from the master servant, Maynard. After several years, Maynard recommends Cecil for a position in a Washington D.C. hotel which Cecil accepts. While working at the hotel, Cecil meets Gloria, and the couple have two children. In 1957, Cecil is hired by the White House during Dwight D. Eisenhower's administration, where White House maître d' Freddie Fallows shows Cecil the grounds and introduces him to head butler. Working in the White House, Cecil witnesses first hand Eisenhower's reluctance to use troops to enforce school desegregation in the South...

DELICIOUS White wine

I bought a wine to bring to my friends house for dinner.
I wasn't too sure which one to get, there are many.
In the end i bought a French one, i mean French wines can never go wrong!

And what a great buy, as we opened it and tasted it, it was SUPER delicious! it was so easy to drink. medium and not cold, still delicious!
We had a lot, despite being a weekday.

So next time I'm having white wine, i will definitely get this one! ^^

And here they are

This live is what I talked about..!
SHINee really brings it, and the fans go crazy.
The only bad thing, I got to say it, I do NOT like the colours of their outfits.
That turquoise do not look good. And why so feminine? (Then again, thats so korean lol)
Not sure if all gray would have had been better but even red would fit better! Oh well, I bet they have more in their wardrobe ^^

Oh well... welcome back!! :)

I want a new one....

I actually want a new phone, I really do. And I could buy one, question is...
Is that what i want to put my money on?!

I'm caught in between Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3!!
Which one should I get?

To be completely honest, I'd like to buy it in Korea...
In Korea they have a redwine Galaxy S4 LTE-A, and I bet some more fun colours for Galaxy Note 3.

Tough descision....

I still have until X-mas to decide, right!? or by then there will be a new phone on the market ^^

Let's start again

So it didn't go as I planned, but I couldn't have done it any differently so I'm not sad.
I'm disappointed but I know I couldn't have done it in any other way.
I guess this is life, but I'm only 25 so I hope and believe there will be other "trains", and other positions that will suit me better.

No need to cry over spilled milk, just to start over and hope there will be another light that will guide me to it!!

I wish, hope and pray!
I won't give up... and thanks to all people who are covering my back :)

Today's quote

"Don't cry over the past, it's gone. Don't stress about the future, it hasn't arrived. Live in the present and make it beautiful"


This is the latest song from Mika Nakashima. It was released back in August, I really like this song.
The lyrics made me think... and I just love her voice, it's a perfect fit for this song!

僕が死のうと思ったのは ウミネコが桟橋で鳴いたから
Boku ga shinou to omotta no wa umineko ga sanbashi de naitakara
波の随意に浮かんで消える 過去も啄ばんで飛んでいけ
Nami no zuii ni ukande kieru kako mo taku ban de tonde ike
僕が死のうと思ったのは 誕生日に杏の花が咲いたから
Boku ga shinou to omotta no wa tanjoubi ni anzu no hana ga saitakara
その木漏れ日でうたた寝したら 虫の死骸と土になれるかな
Sono komorebi de utatane shitara mushi no shigai to tsuchi ni nareru ka na

薄荷飴 漁港の灯台 錆びたアーチ橋 捨てた自転車
Hakkaame gyokou no toudai sabita āchi-bashi suteta jitensha
木造の駅のストーブの前で どこにも旅立てない心
Mokuzou no eki no sutoobu no mae de dokoni mo tabidatenai kokoro
今日はまるで昨日みたいだ 明日を変えるなら今日を変えなきゃ
Kyou wa marude kinou mitaida ashita o kaerunara kyou o kaenakya
分かってる 分かってる けれど
Wakatteru wakatteru keredo

僕が死のうと思ったのは 心が空っぽになったから
Boku ga shinou to omotta no wa kokoro ga karappo ni nattakara
満たされないと泣いているのは きっと満たされたいと願うから
Mitasa renai to naite iru no wa kitto mitasa retai to negaukara

僕が死のうと思ったのは 靴紐が解けたから
Boku ga shinou to omotta no wa kutsuhimo ga hodoketa kara
結びなおすのは苦手なんだよ 人との繋がりもまた然り
Musubi naosu no wa nigatena nda yo hito to no tsunagari mo mata shikari
僕が死のうと思ったのは 少年が僕を見つめていたから
Boku ga shinou to omotta no wa shounen ga boku o mitsumete itakara
ベッドの上で土下座してるよ あの日の僕にごめんなさいと
Beddo no ue de dogeza shi teru yo ano hi no boku ni gomen'nasai to

パソコンの薄明かり 上階の部屋の生活音
Pasokon no usu akari joukai no heya no seikatsu-on
インターフォンのチャイムの音 耳を塞ぐ鳥かごの少年
Intāfon no chaimu no oto mimiwofusagu torikago no shounen
見えない敵と戦ってる 六畳一間のドンキホーテ
Mienaiteki to tatakatteru rokujouhitoma no donkihoute

僕が死のうと思ったのは 冷たい人と言われたから
Boku ga shinou to omotta no wa tsumetai hito to iwa retakara
愛されたいと泣いているのは 人の温もりを知ってしまったから
Aisaretai to naite iru no wa hito no nukumori o shitte shimattakara

僕が死のうと思ったのは あなたが綺麗に笑うから
Boku ga shinou to omotta no wa anata ga kirei ni waraukara
死ぬことばかり考えてしまうのは きっと生きる事に真面目すぎるから
Shinu koto bakari kangaete shimau no wa kitto ikiru koto ni majime sugirukara

僕が死のうと思ったのは まだあなたに出会ってなかったから
Boku ga shinou to omotta no wa mada anata ni deattenakattakara
あなたのような人が生まれた 世界を少し好きになったよ
Anata no youna hito ga umareta sekai o sukoshi suki ni natta yo

あなたのような人が生きてる 世界に少し期待するよ

Miss America

I think this is the best version of the song Miss America by James Blunt.
I'm looking forward listening to his new album :)

But for now....

Today's quote

"Sometimes the best things in life are unexpected surprises!"

Butlers chocolates

Who doesn't like chocolate!? I discovered a new chocolate brand a few weeks ago, when I was in Dublin.
It's an Irish brand, and I actually believe I tried it back during my EYP days in high school but didn't think alot about it since I never had the chance to get my hands on it.
Anyway, on my way home from Dublin I bought some at the airport. They had a large cafe at the airport.
I bought two items from them, as I wasn't sure how good it'd be. One was the Irish whiskey truffle, and the second was a butterscotch bar.
I gave the truffle to my mother as it's a mix with dark chocolate. We tried it a few days ago, it was really nice! I think I should have bought one more.

Then, Yesterday evening, I opened up the butterscotch flavoured one.
It just melted on my tongue, so delicious yet not too sweet. Also this one, I wish I had bought more of because now there not much left, also my parents loved it!!

I do wonder why the brand isn't bigger than it is, I saw that they have a store/café in London and one in Pakistan. And a few on Ireland. Still... 
I do believe this brand could grow bigger, still all isn't about money right!? ^^
Next time I will try some other flavours... There are many.. as you can see on this photo below ^^

My previous post about their chocolate, I had their hot chocolate for dinner at the airport! One cup is so rich it's like a dinner ^^ Butlers HOT chocolate post

For more info about Butlers and their various chocolates please visit their homepage, they have a lot to offer ^^ Butlers homepage

SHINee's calling out to Everybody

The beginning of the music reminded me of TVXQ's style.
But 30-45 sec into the song SHINee came back to me ^^
I'm not too sure if I think the MV is really showing what SHINee is trying to convey to all fans, by that I mean, the setting of the MV. It feels like they are trying a lot but it's kinda confusing.
Also, what's with SM these days?! Look at previous MV's from other SM artists and you can see many similarities. Which shows.. also SHINee is SM, but where's the COMEBACK and originality?

I do like the song, even though all I wrote above seems to bring them down. It's just I think they song could have had been presented much better.
Anyway I'm looking forward to their come back stage as well as the album!!

Happy Thanksgiving Canada

This weekend is the Thanksgiving weekend in Canada.
And well.. I'm not celebrating it.
Last year I was in Banff, AB during this weekend, it feels so weird to be home.
Anyway, since it's a Canadian holiday, I will share some Canadian music.
This is Chad Brownlee's new song, "Where the party at".

Enjoy ^^

Today's quote

"Believing in yourself is the first secret of success..."

Sunday brunch

Sunday is here, i know i should do a lot but because of my cold i have no strength at all...excuse number one!
Anyway i made Sunday brunch, an omelett with sausage, sugar snaps, onion, feta cheese, basil and oregano, salt and pepper.

Happy days... just like Jamie Oliver use to say ^^

Today's quote

"Don't cry over the past, it's gone. Don't stress about the future, it hasn't arrived. Live in the present and make it beautiful"

Creative Halloween

I'm not a fan of Halloween, and do not really celebrate it.
Anyway i found this...
Amusing and creative ^^

Seminar at the Korean Embassy

Today i went to the Korean embassy for a seminar about Korean food.
i got to know some secrets and some new things like...There's a Vitamin called "vitamin U"
Afterwards we got some foods~
i just love home made Korean food ^^

You are the one

Because I wrote about hygiene in school, I started to think of music I liked back then...
I know kinda weird reference right ^^

Anyway today, Friday and all I'd like to share a song I used to listen a lot to between 7-9th grade ^^
This is from Danish C21, and the song is called You are the one.

Like it's something new?

These days in Sweden there are a lot on the news that the hygiene in Swedish schools is bad.
Toilets are so dirty and other areas are filthy and it's a hazard for people to visit.
Let me say, it was the same when I went to school (elementary-high school).

I hated to shower after gym class, and not to mention, go to the toilet.
I only went when I really had to do so, that means I had no choice unless I wanted it in my pants.
My biggest love was to have gym class at the end of the day so I could go home and shower instead of using the ones in school.
There were more reasons to it, I knew that the boys had also used the showers to amuse themselves and well, explore their bodies, and that didn't make it better.

I even remember growing our own bacteria back in 9th grade, know what me and my group tested?
The toilet seat in school and let me tell you, it was not a pretty sight when we saw the amount of bacteria.

But also at university it's nasty, as well as public toilets in general in Sweden.
I wonder if it's because people just lack manners? I mean if people would treat all public toilets in the way "leave it like you'd want to find it", would it be a difference?

So my evaluation, why have politicians waited until now to frown their foreheads and do something about it? Well... better now than never, right?!
Also, maybe it's time for a change in human behaviour?!

just wanted to share this in the honour of HANGUL day.
i think this one is kinda amazing ^^

アラフェス 2013 バッグ

I forgot to mention that I picked up my Arafes bag the other day ^^
I'm still waiting on my cushion, t-shirt, and towel!! Kinda excited as I really love my new bag! :)
It's really big and usable, inside there's also a small pouch ^^

Arashi never fails to deliver ^^


One of my fave seasonings these days is ごまドレッシング, or "goma dressing". ごま (goma) in Japanese means sesame.
To me this little thing goes well with so many foods - veggies, chicken, fish and red meat.
I absolutely love it ^^
I have tried a few different ones and they are almost the same.
I think I prefer 7Eleven's one, however I have only been able to buy that one in Japan.
Kikkoman's is quite easy to find in Sweden, however it has mustard seeds in it making the flavour slightly different.

But the reason why I post about this is to share how easy it is to use this dressing to spice up your meal. Also, I used it today when cooking so I was reminded to share this, just in case anyone of you haven't tried it yet!
You can use it on cooked meat as well as on a salad. It gives a fresh taste :)

In Stockholm,Sweden and London, UK, I have found this at the local Japanese stores, for a very affordable price! :)
And I guess for all others you can find it at local Asian groceries or Japanese food store.

Today's quote

"It's not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself, and to make your happiness a priority. It's necessary. "

For some reason, I have a huge craving for this dish...
Know what it is?

You guessed right, Japanese Okonomiyaki. Like a healthy pizza.
I so want it, wonder if I should make one this weekend!?
I got all ingrediants, except the fish flakes. ^^
Ohh.. I really need to make this now!! Can it be weekend even faster?

Time for some Cherry blossom

Although it's autumn now, I want to share some "spring" feeling.
In Japan the school year begins around the time Sakura blossom.
It can also be a new beginning and an end to something good.
Like graduating from High School and enter Uni.
The reason why I chose these songs is because to me, in this moment I feel like I'm stuck in between, not sure where the road in front of me will take me.
And to hold on to the old might not be good, but the new is also scary. Yet I'm not sure where the future will take me.
It's difficult to explain, sorry... but as of right now, my life is up-side-down.

This song is kinda "old".. from 2011.
It's called 桜の木になろう

And this one is even older, from 2010.
It's called 桜の栞

真夏の果実 Live

This was uploaded onto Ayaka's official Youtube page.
‪Ayaka performed this on the Nakajima Hiroto Show.
The song is from her new cover album, and it's called "真夏の果実" (Eng: Summer's fruits)

As always Ayaka shows what a great singer she is ^^


Who's been missing out on the preview of Arashi's new song, P.A.R.A.D.O.X?
I haven't ^^
I kinda agree that this is the most sexy styled PV, still... Japanese sexy, if you know what I mean.
There are a few weeks left until the album is coming out.
I cannot wait ^^

Ohno's comment is so cute.. he should think higher of himself!!! :)

Way too early

Yesterday i went to a local supermarket, and found this to surprise and fear.
This soft drink is usually sold around Christmas in Sweden, and's only October!!couldn't you have waited at least one month more?!

This is way too early according to me!!!!!!

Today's quote

"...Laugh to forget but don't forget to laugh..."

About you

Shane posted the link on his Twitter and I'm hooked.
I think this song has a beautiful message, I think a lot of people should listen to this, men and women.
I'd say this song is THE best of Shane's new songs ^^

샤이니's 상사병

These were released a few days ago, and I haven't been able to listen to these until now.
I really like this style of SHINee, and I look forward to their new "mini" album.

The title track is called: 상사병 (Symptoms)
But the literal translation of 상사병 is "lovesick"... in case anyone is interested.
Sometimes I don't understand the English titles as they have a different meaning.
Anyway... cannot wait for their come back ^^

Subway maps

I found this on twitter, and thought it was kinda funny explained, but do make a point.
It just simple to describe reality ^^
I have been on 7 of 8 of these...and well some, like Sapporo or Kyoto is easier than Tokyo, that's for sure ^^

Tokyo, Osaka
Nagoya, Sapporo
Fukuoka, Yokohama
Kyoto, Sendai

Today's quote

"Beauty is not your face. Beauty is your soul."

New local place

It felt like cheating, but i, or we, had to try the new place. to be honest, it's not like we needed a new pizza place in the neighbourhood, but here it is.
I visit the usual place maybe 2-4 times a year, which is not a lot.
Last Friday, mum and i went to the new place for lunch.
it wasn't that expensive either, and the sizes were huge.
i had a kebab, and mum had a pizza. we could only finish half of our meals, the rest we had for lunch on Saturday ^^

Not sure if i will visit again, i mean i don't want to cheat on the local place have visited since i can remember...more than 20 years.

Handen i fickan fast jag bryr mig

This is the forth album from Swedish singer songwriter Veronica Maggio.
She's one of few Swedish artists I like. She sings in Swedish, which today feels kinda unusual, but I wouldn't want her to song in English.
I really like this album, especially the title track Sergels torg.
The title of the album is "The hand in the pocket although I care" - she said in an interview that what she means with the title, that there are times you just stand there acting cool with your hands in your pockets, however inside you are insecure and do care about what's going on, although it doesn't show.


1. Sergels torg
