That's good idea!



+ Mall of Asia +

My friends and I went to the Mall of Asia which is the biggest mall in Asia. However, we didn't shop even though it is a mall. What did we do? Skate! I couldn't help it!

The features of the skating rink were:
    Most of skaters were kids.
    There were a lot of people watching because the skating rink is located in an open space in the mall.
    A lot of skaters were wearing jeans and T-shirts.
    Nobody cared about skating in the wrong direction.

Yeah, take it easy! Well every hour, bubbles fell from the ceiling.

It had been a long time since I had skated. I rented skates because my skates are in Japan now. Oh, how I miss my skates. Anyways, I enjoyed the feeling of cutting into the cold wind. My friends told me I had a very nice expression on my face when I was skating.

After skating, of course, we drank San Miguel draft beer! and watched the sun set.

It was a good day.



+ "L"ight +

My boss, co-worker, and I went to a Japanese restaurant. I drank San Miguel Light at that time. When I ordered the second bottle of beer, I said "Can I have one more Light?" Well, five minutes later, the staff brought rice to me.

... I have a lot of miscommunication experiences about L and R because as for me, as a typical Japanese speaker, the R sound is a little bit difficult. However, I have believed that I can pronounce L sound. For example, I can understand the situation if I ordered "Rice" and the staff would bring "Light" to me. The reality was completely opposite! It means... Oh no, I don't want to think about that.

I ordered Pale Pilsen as my second beer.

Surrender...



+ Another Alcohol +

You know, I love alcohol, however, today I will introduce to another alcohol. In the Philippines, it is very popular to use alcohol for keeping the hands clean. You can buy a variety of alcohol not only in a drug store but also in a super market or convenience store.

image: Alcohol (These are just examples.)

Well, most of brands have two kinds of alcohol products; Isopropyl Alcohol type and Ethanol type.

Actually, I tried such variety brands, I'm sure I tried more than ten, because each brand has each fragrance. One of them is smelled like baby powder; other one has rose scent, and other one has very strong chemical smell! Oh boy.

Well, in Japan, I have used such alcohol only in a hospital even though, you know, almost all of the Japanese love antibacterial, sterilizing, or germicide. I don't know why it isn't so popular in Japan. There might be a strong image of hospital, like "Disinfect." In Canada, according to my experience, maybe, Alco gel products are more popular than such liquid alcohol.

... I will buy "Ethanol" tonight also.
