Posted in: Tokyo's 'Little Nepal' a microcosm of Japan's evolving identity See in context

A friend of mine is a highly skilled chef and has a Nepalese restaurant. He has complained to me that there are too many Nepalese coming in and pretending to be chefs as they can get the visa by claiming to be a specialized chef. Families set up these restaurants so that they can bring their relatives over even though they can’t cook. This is why so many Indian/Nepalese restaurants are hit and miss.

Well if they keep them in Asia they should bring in fit men to ogle at...just to be fair. Though I really dislike the men ogling and taking photos more than the girls on display.

Garthgoyle you should look into joining a union. It's not guaranteed that you can become a permanent employee if you teach at university. (A ten year rule has been set up). However some companies may not realize that April will be the "5 years plus one day rule". Wait and see...but join a union if you want to fight for your right.

she stomped on her head on the 14th and called the ambulance on the 17th. I wonder if the mother just lay for three days until she died. Very sad.

I also thought it meant vacuum cleaner bag by the headlines....should have included the "storage". RIP (but the mother should have kicked him out long ago)

yasukuni -So you had to make the decision, if it "blows", do you hit the highways and get stuck, or stay inside in Tokyo. Everything I read suggested that at the very worst it would involve staying indoors for a day or two.

unless another earthquake forced you outdoors!

Posted in: Lady Gaga to appear on 'Kohaku Uta Gassen' See in context

I saw Gaga on the TV the other day and she is an artist to be recognized. She uses Japanese designers and her songs are ok. She may have a limited life at the top but I think she is pretty clever to know where her biggest market is ....Japan. I will be watching and enjoying hopefully!

Posted in: Apple says pre-orders for iPhone 4S break record See in context

Zichi. ooo err! I was referring to the infamous Foxconn Factories(that makes Apple,Dell and Sony products) who made workers sign contracts requiring them not to commit suicide after 14 workers did so. They have extra (illegal) overtime to complete orders when demand is high..such as when Apple launches a new product. I have Apple products but I don't feel the need to upgrade every year for the sake of it.

guess that means there will be a few more overworked Chinese factory workers to placate our need for upgrades and shiny new gadgets
