Posted in: Woman jumps to her death at subway station in Tokyo See in context

It's always sad to read about these people who have lived long lives only to end their lives this way. I kind of wonder if anyone noticed any signs of depression in this woman. Poor woman.

I don't understand why so many people here do this, but what I do notice is that there are many suicides on TV dramas here. Maybe the script writers should take notice of this and stop writing these events into their dramas.

Great to hear about this. This snowy season has been dangerous in many parts.

Posted in: What was the best thing that happened to you this year and what was the worst? See in context

The best thing - actually spending lots of time with my family and less time on the internet and Facebook. I really felt like a father. I wouldn't change it one bit! The worst thing - Losing my grandmother and grandmother-in-law. I really took that hard.

It might be silly, but reading 5 books in 2016. Before that, I usually surfed the internet or listened to music. I ended up reading 14 books. I was glad I did it!

Posted in: Premium Friday campaign to encourage workers to leave early See in context

There's a difference between telling someone to do something and "encouraging" someone to do something. It will not work in the Eikaiwa business. They can do this, but they'll lose money and potential business, since most of their business is after 3pm.

It's not a bad wine, but not worth the hype. Like Nessie said, It's a picnic drink. I've had much cheaper Chilean wines that are much better.

Posted in: America’s Panda Express Chinese fast food chain is coming to Japan See in context

I do understand that Chinese food here is better and healthier than PE. However, every once in a while, I do like that nostalgic aspect of eating PE like eating PE at a shopping mall in the US, especially orange chicken with veggies on top of noodles.

This survey is pathetic, indeed. However, I would tell my daughters, "Don't let any man stop you from going after your goals and dreams. Just kick him to the curb and I'll help you do that."

Posted in: What do you think of Japan's health insurance system? See in context

I think for the most part, it's very good, compared to my native country, especially if you have kids. My kids are taken cared of at a very low rate. It also works well, it you have to go to the hospital for surgeries plus stays. With the exception of breakfast, my hospital meals were great. Some of them looked and tasted almost like restaurant quality. In my native country, the food is bland, on plastic dishes. I do agree that the dental portion can be improved. It should only take one time for a teeth cleaning and no more than two times for fillings.

while we were eating he got up and excused himself to the bathroom, and then left and went home, so I was stuck with the 30,000 yen bill. (
