30DWC Day 19: Teriyaki Hamburger and Sunny Side Up

If you’re a busy person just like me (sometimes) and have no time to prepare your bento, konbini stores are really a big help to stop the war in our stomach during rush hours. And if you’re in Japan, waiting for your bus or train, finding a seat or benches to eat your take-out food is really a big problem. BUT, don’t worry because Japan convenience stores knows exactly what to do, they have easy to eat food like onigiri, sandwiches, sushi, etc. And las time I tried onigirazu I really liked it and promised myself to try all of them. So today’s onigirazu is a Teriyaki Hamburger &Sunny Side up.

I think there’s no need to explain what’s inside because 😀

It was really delicious but comparing to the Spam Onigirazu I have tried last time, I prefer the first one. Maybe because it was tastier or it’s just that I am inlove with Jollibee Jolly burger lol. You can buy it for 240 JPY plus tax, and it’s enough to fill an empty stomach.

I paired it with Boss coffee, and ofcourse a great view of Mt. Fuji. Ohh, LIFE.


Where would you like to drink your coffe btw? And with who? I want to have coffee infront ot the Eiffel Tower someday, holding that cup with my left hand with a wedding ring on it (naks! hint 101 hahahahahaha) 🙂

30DWC Day 18: Bloody Mary with Tabasco.

Don’t get me wrong.

I didn’t drink again today. Ha Ha. It’s so weird that I woke up at 5:00 o’clock this afternoon and that’s a really long sleep! Maybe because I was really tired of working six days straight alone at school. Anyways, this post is a continuation of my post yesterday about the matcha whisky cocktail I tried. Nothing much happen today as I just woke up and I don’t wanna tell you how I spent hours in my bath tub watching The Layover and give a review of it lol.

Opposite to the matcha cocktail, this bloody mary is a must try. I really loved it! When we’re ordering drinks, Karim recommended to try this one, he said he tried it before and he loves it that much that he orders the same thing when he goes here. And so I tried and no regrets.

Don’t worry because you will be the one to put your tabasco depending on how you like.
Bloody Mary with sochu and tabasco.

I loved how you could really smell the spiciness when drinking, the salt added to its taste.

I also got to try their tomato with beer cocktail but I didn’t like it. I like the tomato with vodka better.

Tomato with beer. EEkk.
The elephant thingy they will put on your table if you’re allowed to drink. Yes. They would ask if you’re driving after you drink or not.
Highball whisky with lemon.
Daiki was thinking how to describe her. He wanted to say shes very confident and she looks matured.
Karim and Yoh, Iza’s officemates.
Iza and her boyfriend currently recovering from the alcohol. lol

He’s enjoying everything.

We talked a lot that night about random things, it’s my first time to meet these guys this year and I really missed them. Daiki and I talked about his goals for this year, and mine too. Yoh told us stories about how she got bullied for having “YOH” as her name when she was young. While Karim on the other hand talked a lot of stuff and he also disagree of the thought why we (English teachers) are not allowed to speak Japanese inside the classroom.

I went back home around two or three o’clock and that’s how the day ended.

How about you? What’s your most favorite drink so far? I like sangria, margarita and bloody mary, ohh and I also love Highball.

30DWC Day 17: Japan Matcha Whisky Cocktail.

Do you also love eating or drinking food with matcha? Well, I’m asking because I love trying different food with matcha in or on it too, and living in Japan where tea is all over and part of my everyday life, of course I love it.

BUT. . .

How about getting drunk with matcha? Have you tried it? Well I’ve tried but getting drunk with it is impossible. Not because it’s too weak for me nor I’m a strong drinker haha, it’s just that a glass of it WAS enough for me to try.

BUT. . .

Why did I try it? Well, going out for a drink in Japan is really fun for me, I love trying new, different and weird things that this country offers. Usually when I go out with friends, I tend to try everything (if it’s nomehodai- all you can drink) or at least the weirdest one. And last night, as we celebrate iza’s birthday, unfortunately I came late because my work finishes at 9:00 o’clock, we went bar hoping and a Thailand-Chinese officemate of hers recommended a bar for the last round. The place was really clean and refreshing. There were a lot of people when we came, but no one left aside from our group when we decided to go around two or three in the morning so I was able to take pictures without people.

I wanted to sit here, again, but there were no space when we came.
Daiki did the work of hanging the coats. So nice of him.
You have to put your bags under the table, on the baskets provided. They consider it rude to put your bags on the table.

That’s the last group of people left.

So as I was saying, lol, this is the matcha whisky cocktail I tried. Honestly speaking I didn’t like it, and nobody from our group did like it too. Hehe. Nobody, except me ofcourse ordered this, they said even though they haven’t tried it they already know what it would taste like.

BUT . . .

Atleast I gotta try it, another unforgettable experience lol. And I am not discouraging anyone to try, we all have different taste when it comes to drinks or food. It was good but not for me. Lol. It literally tastes like matcha and a sour taste of whisky.

For the price, it’s not that expensive. Actually the bar offers cheaper drinks compare to other bars here in Hamamatsu.

See? It’s only 390 JPY.
I also tried this one.

If you happen to crave for something like this and you wanna try to do it on your own, why not? Try.  And tell me about it 🙂

Japan Sukiya’s Hot Pot


It’s my second winter now in Japan and I’m still not getting used to the cold weather. Everyday I wake up I always complain “samui, samui, samui, mecha mecha samui!!!!”.

samui – cold,

mecha(slang/same meaning as totemo) – very or extremely

I AM COLD. (Watashi wa samui desu.)

I AM VERY COLD. (Watashi wa totemo samui desu.) or (Watashi wa meccha samui desu.)

It’s too ironic because during my entire life in the Ph, I used to complain how hot the weather is, I used to wish to have snow o winter in my country, I always stay in places that has ac and now I’m experiencing it, I still complain lol.

Forgive me.

But here are some of the reasons why I am not liking it, First, it’s very hard to get up in the morning and prepare for work, Secondly, I lessen my shower time to 3 days a week (that’s a major secret!),  Thirdly, I hate doing household chores such as washing the dishes and cooking! and Lastly, I have to eat faster than usual because my food gets cold faster, and being a Filipina, I love eating oily food such as adobo and nilaga which is not good.

So during this season, I tend to go out a lot or just buy bento boxes either at our local supermarket or konbini (convenience store). I also  usually go to my favorite Japanese restaurant – Sukiya, the largest chain of gyudon (beef bowl) restaurant in Japan. What I like about this restaurant is that they always have something new in their menu, and last month (December) I had a chance to try their Sukiya’s Hot Pot, but unfortunately when I came back this month they no longer have the said dish. But at least I got to try it!

When you happen to be in Japan and you wanna try Sukiya’s seasonal menu, you could easily see it because they put a special menu for it, they print it on the table and they also have big posters of it everywhere in the restaurant.


Or you could try their regulars, beef bowls, or basically rice bowl with food on top 😀 They have varieties of toppings to choose from, my favorite is their beef with three kinds of cheese toppings, you also get to choose the bowl sizes, prices starts at 210-720 JPN.



You ca also choose different sets of side dishes you can add to your order, from 70-180 JPN.

Upon entering, they’ll give you tea and tell you to just push the button and let me know
before I get the wrong idea and go, You’re gonna miss the freak that I control, so push the button – WAITTTT what? (That’s a song girl!).

Since it’s a fastfood restaurant, you won’t wait that long to get your order, perfect for me who only has an hour break from work.

What I also loved about this hot pot is that they served it with a flame burning the pot, I didn’t worry about it getting cold. Thumbs up! Don’t worry about the open flame – it’s fool-proof, hindi ka masasaktan char!

It has beef, noodles, a variety of vegetables, a side of rice, and a raw egg to stir in whenever you like. It’s actually a single order good for one person but the serving was good for 2 (for me). Pwedeng pwede sa mag-isang puso ngayong taglamig, at hindi ka rin mangangamba na manlamig sya sayong piling.

Wag kalimutang haluin at tikman bago manlamig, ahy hindi na nga pala manlalamig to.

You will also have an empty bowl just incase the soup gets too hot for you. Minsan maglaan din ng space, minsan okay lang na manlamig. Teka, para kanino ba to? lol

I will give this 9 out of 10, it’s not the usual soup I usually have (which are salty or tasty) it was sweet and savory.  It’s not also that expensive and the price is totally worth it.

You could check their website I linked below.

Take out: Yes (just say o-mochi kaeri)
