Posted in: M6.6 quake hits southwestern Japan; over 10 injured See in context

Woke me up at about 1:12 am. Even in Fukuoka it was very noticeable and lasted about 10 seconds.

Posted in: JAL apologizes for canceling overbooked Tokyo-Fukuoka flight See in context

This was probably the last flight, lots of businessmen go to Tokyo for the day and return home at night. Also there is a 3-day week-end starting on Friday today, some Tokyo families might have been returning to their hometown for a short vacation. I don't think the tourists were to blame.

Posted in: YKK starts serving halal meals at cafeteria in Japan See in context

Do you know what halal meat really is? The animals have their throats slit while still conscious (not stunned as for non halal meat), their heads turned to Mecca while a prayer to Allah is being said. They suffer immensely.

Posted in: Baby dead 'for a day' as mother chats on Internet forums See in context

So sad. I had only 1 child because of toxemia( a dangerous pregnancy related illness) and he was born premature by c-section, but he is now a healthy and happy young man. The only times he had accidents were when he was at school! I feel that women in Japan rely too much on their mothers to help them when they have a baby. I didn't have anyone to help me here in Japan but I asked a baby day care center to look after him when I was working.
