Hello Meliisa,

Ikebukuro is always crowded. People everywhere going everywhere. Sunshine City is huge, you spend two days there and Namja Town is a very interesting place to visit too.

Hello Melissa,

One of the best ramen I had was at Tsukiji Market. I ate a shrimp tempura ramen in a small hole in the wall with about 6 stools at the counter.

I agree with you 100% I just ignore all the sigh wavers as I drive by and don't even look at them even if I support that candidate. A friend of mines rear ended a car because he was busy looking and waving at the supporters and the car in front stopped.

Hello Melissa,

I work in the auto industry and besides the things you are looking for, and since I fix my own cars, I look beyond what most people think and look for. I look at the engine, how is it going to be if I need to work on it? Easy or hard? Parts? Will the part be easy to get? Will the parts be expensive? Warranty on the engine? Transmission? How's the service department? Recalls? Has there been a lot of recalls in past years? Dependable? Being stalled is the worst feeling. Accessories, do I need it or do I want it? The more accessories the more things can go wrong. Where's the oil filter? Is it easy to get to? Safety? What's the history of past years? Use? What will you be using it for mostly? I Standup Paddle so a car is not going to work for me. Know any mechanics? Get their opinions, most mechanics I know drives Toyota's,Honda's or Nissan's . That should tell you something. My brother has owned cars other than asian built and I fixed his cars way more than I do on minds. (I have a Nissan, Acura, Honda and Toyota).

Electric cars are great but when you need to replace the batteries down the road, it's going to cost you. Might be better off just buying a new car.

No way I could afford spending that kind of money for dinner no matter how good it is. I would have to win the lottery first.

Hello Melissa!

I always wanted to try there. Chinee NewYear brings back a lot of good memories. I my younger days I was part of the Lung Kong Physical Cultural club and performed the Lion dance and Kung Fu demonstrations all over the islands. Just hearing the drum beats gives me goose bumps. Do you know each club has their own drum beat? Just from hearing the drum beat in the distance over the others I can recongnize my former club even today.
