Posted in: Swimmer Tomita suspended until March 31, 2016, for camera theft See in context

I highly doubt that he will join the team for Olympics. Athletes needs to show good performances in advance before the country can start selecting who are able to representing the country. Tomita was pretty good before but not that "special"(Even Phelps couldn't get away from the punishment), I don't think they will add him to the team roster. Anyway, quite sure his carrier is done.

Posted in: Swimmer Tomita gets 18-month ban for stealing camera See in context

Some Japanese media reported that he's actually a "strange" person to begin with. I am not sure how credible it is but it said once Tomita brought a huge Mickey Mouse plush to the training because he's lonely. I also can't find any reason why he's taking risk of losing his career just for a camera unless he's mentally unstable.

I also scratching my head reading this. I have no idea why he need to do this. While the swimming event is already over yesterday, I think they might suspend him from swimming event after they arrive in Japan.

kolohe, iPhone that goes on sale in Apple store are all unlocked version. Apple Japan just start selling unlocked phone recently, maybe that's explain why Chinese people start buying it in Japan.

Posted in: Complaints on the rise from consumers sustaining minor cornea injuries from colored contact lenses See in context

"It's kind of funny, every time I put in my corrective contact lenses so I can actually SEE, I wish I didn't have to. It's a pain."

CruisinJapan, that's very true! I too, always wish someday my vision could miraculously get better by itself. and I have a really strange eyes that tolerated color-contact more than the plain one. My eyes turns red everytime I wear those plain contacts (took a week to recover). I have been trying 4-5 different brands and all just doesn't seems to work.

Posted in: How do you think the taste of Japanese rice compares with rice produced in other countries? See in context

sometimes Japanese rice is good when you eat it with some pickles(oshinko) because the texture is sticky and it matches well with side dished. But Jasmine rice will always be my all time favorite!
