Once upon a time there was a post with no comments at all…
Are you ready for the fastest and shortest post ever?
Weedend was tiring but fast to tell about. Friday too tired to go out. Saturday diner at a Guillermo’s friend’s house, he cooked Indian food, not spicy he said: my ass!!! We keot awake thanks to HellBoy II (awesome!!! You must watch it), beers, indian rhum and because diner was served around 4 am… Came back about 6 o 7, went to bed and wake up in the afternoon. Period.
Monday : The importance of having a beard in Japan (Tener barba en Japón)
Japanese are very fashionable people and give particular importance to the way they look. This is what we all know. But what we didn’t know until now is this: you can buy fake beards in order to improve your looks. Actually neither Guillermo nor I have seen many bearded Japanese men (nor women), not more than 10. But as fashinalbe as they are you just need to put some products on the market and millions of Japanese buy them right the way!
I introduce to you: MAKE UP.

Tuesday : Trick or treachery Timos por teléfono
One of those things Guillermo likes to pay attention to is how cashiers work in restaurants and shops. In Spain there is a trick which consists upon claiming the change for a bigger bill than the one we actually used for paying. This is impossible in places such as Philippines or Japan. In Philippines, every bar tender, waiter o cashier said out laud the exact amount of money as he or she receives it. Here, the money doesn’t go into de cashier before you receive the change, so no space for misunderstanding.
But there isn’t such a thing as power of imagination. So you have to make up some new tricks. The one we are about to explain here is called: It’s me, it’s me!
+You pick up some old person inside a bank office
+You call to his/her cell (how you get his number is a mystery) and pretend to be some relative in need of money.
+Thousands of old people have been victims of the hit.
+Japanese government put 58000 police officers on ATMs all over the country (personally I haven’t seen one)
+The robbers gained 170 millions (in EUROS) during the present year.
Tuesday: Waiting for the VISAs Ya solo faltan los visados
In a few words, this is our Japanese Alien Card. Some alterations of the original must have been done to hide the identity of the owner.
Wednesday : Upclose and personal Seal Sello oficial (inkan (印鑑) o hanko (判子))
Something that sooner o later you must do to stay in this country is having you own HANKO. In Asia, you see many shops selling kind of seals, from kids kind to old ones. If you look at the Alien Card you will see an example: right down corner, red. These seals are used in official and personal paperwork, and you need to have one before you can open a bank account. So you forget about your shitty signature and the not that nice remarks about it and simply stamp your HANKO.

Thursday: This is Halloween cookies Galletas de Halloween
Yeap, Sato-san offered us these and now we don’t know what to offer her!
We didn’t expected it, although after the Pasalubong discovery in Philippines we shouldn’t be surprised. Pasalubong are little gifts you bring back from a trip and you give to your colleagues. Back home, gifts are bought just because of a special day and to particular friends, not to colleagues. Well, of course you share your country delicacies with all your foreign friends, but that is a different matter here.
We’ll see what we can find for Sato-san, suggestions are welcome.
