TGIF, so it's time for a laugh.

Be prepared to be baffled by the signs the next time you visit Japan. Here's to prepare you for what to expect:

They construct water in Japan?? Some countries should learn from them!!

The magazines there are quite unusual. They put them in fridges and they dont come with pages!

Prices for many things in Japan are already expensive, at least they warn you in advance!

I couldnt make out what they were trying to tell us. I guess, that's what happens when smoke gets in your eyes too!

Have a great weekend ahead!!

Happy 4th of July

4th of July brings to my mind the fireworks in New York. I used to live in Battery Park City, which was by the Hudson river. Come 4th of July, there was a magnificent fireworks display near the statue of Liberty.

It was a day of celebration in the US as it marks the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. On that day many people would have parties, BBQs, and then enjoy the fireworks. As "aliens" in that country, we were no different and joined in the celebrations as well.

Tho' I now no longer live in the US, we still remember the celebrations associated with it :)

Happy 4th of July to all Americans reading this post.
