Posted in: Sexy undies yes, G-strings no, say French women See in context

I actually work part time at a lingerie shop in Paris, and it really is true, most of my clients prefer to buy the 'shortie' to the string, although tonga styles sell quite well. An advantage of the shortie is that many of them have porte-jartelles integrated, so they are still very sexy when teamed with stockings. Also, with a string, often the client has to take a size bigger than their clothes size, which is relatively normal, but then they are so shocked, they refuse to buy it!

I also agree with most of the comments about underwear in Japanese shops...passion killers much? I'm in the middle of a masters degree, and was always hoping to follow the PHD > Professor route, but I may just take my new lingerie skills over to Japan, open a beautiful store and get these women to enjoy their feminity to the fullest!

Finally, that is not a great picture of Chantal Thomass, but her creations are absolutely divine - search for her page on facebook to see some examples!

Posted in: Woman dies after beating administered by son, provoked by incontinence incident See in context

I live with my boyfriend and his grandparents: his grandfather is wheelchair bound and suffering from advanced parkinsons disease, unable to do even the smallest thing for himself. He requires our presence around the clock. Sometimes he doesn't tell us that he needs to go to the bathroom and soils himself. It can be very frustrating. We can never just leave to go to the cinema, or go to a restaurant when we feel like it, we have to find somebody to care for him and prearrange all of our outings. I have only been here for three months; my partner and his grandmother have been doing it for three years.

My point is, I can understand that this man was highly frustrated, I can even understand that he lashed out. He shouldn't have lashed out, but I can understand why he did. Especially if he lived alone with her, and had to care for her completely by himself. He probably didn't mean to kill her... Nobody wants their mother to die like that. Rest in peace...

Posted in: Japanese woman sentenced to death in Malaysia for drug smuggling See in context

I disagree with the death penalty, as a rule. If she was genuinely duped, I would feel very sorry for her.

However, drugs ruin lives and fuel wars. That in Malaysia drug-smuggling is punished by the death penalty is well-known; at the very least, I am pretty sure there would be mentions of it in the airport! I have to admire Malaysia's tough stance towards the subject. Finally... it's just genuinely hard to believe that anybody would really agree to transport a suitcase for anyone else in this day and age. Though it is never right to pass judgment before the trial, it seems as though she knew what she was doing, and it has gone horribly wrong...

Posted in: Pink Panther member jailed for 10 years over 2007 Ginza jewel robbery See in context

In a way I enjoy the story of this jewel heist gang, it's a like a film happening in real life!

But yes, ultimately of course, crime is crime and should be punished. 10 years seems a bit harsh. Perhaps it's to dissuade the other members from continuing.

Posted in: Troy Davis executed in Georgia amid international outcry See in context

Davis may have killed the police officer. He also may not have killed the police officer.

This should have been all it needed to cancel the execution.

I'm glad the police took this seriously. Keep it up.

Posted in: Radiation found in rice from Fukushima Pref; more tests planned See in context

I'm afraid I'd have to say no to the purchase of rice from this prefecture, even if technically it is 'safe for consumption'.

I do find it hard to believe that the government is promoting the sale of Fukushima rice, when indeed it is contaminated... It literally beggars belief. Let people decide for themselves, maybe, put actively promote it? The next generation is going to look back and wonder what the hell we were doing.

Also, I don't know how it is for other countries, but here in France and definitely in England they have stopped covering this in the media, when there are important lessons to be learned and debates to be had.

Posted in: Living in Japan, which food or drink item do you miss most from your home country? See in context

When I was there it was digestive biscuits... then we discovered the Tesco in Shin-Okubo and ALL MY BISCUIT PROBLEMS WERE SOLVED. Tesco-samaaa!

Posted in: Man arrested for arson threat in Shibuya club See in context

'I'll get the death penalty. That's what I want.'


This man probably has some deep-seated issues to want to die so badly... but taking down as many people with you as you can? Despicable. Will be interesting to see what kind of punishment he gets, how soon he'll be allowed back out into society.

Posted in: JAL pilot arrested for taking up-skirt photos at train station See in context

As a girl, this is sometimes difficult to say.. but if you're wearing a skirt that's so short it flashes your underwear on stairs, then you're basically inviting people to look. Complaining about it would be like wearing a very low-cut top and moaning about people staring at your chest.

However, looking is where it should stop! Taking pictures is highly invasive, and purposefully setting out to do so even more so. The pilot should feel ashamed. I wish there was more information on this program about taking upskirt photos... was it a serious debate to tackle the problem, or a more lighthearted one poking fun at it? I hope it is not the latter.

Posted in: Melbourne named world's most liveable city; Tokyo 18th See in context

I spent a year in Tokyo as part of my degree, and I have to say that I think for students, Tokyo is extremely liveable! Even though I had no money and had to leave my dorm for a house in the sticks, the atmosphere was lovely, there was always something fun to do and I loved how you could walk around anywhere and always end up stumbling across a beautiful little shrine or park.

On the flipside, I know that working a proper job in Tokyo would give rise to a different experience altogether. Just one look at the crowded trains in the morning... I think the list would be compiled very differently for different people (yes, obvious comment is obvious, but you all know what I mean).

Posted in: Burger King offers one-coin Value Choice set See in context

Good news for me. If I absolutely have to have some food of dubious nutritional quality I prefer burger king to the other chains. Only problem was the price! Mushroom cheese sounds tasty.

Posted in: Why do so many Japanese women take photos of their food at restaurants and post it on Facebook or their blogs? See in context

I quite like looking at the pictures, they give me cooking inspiration sometimes.
