Made in Chinese Cabbage cuisine.The above is traditional Engrish. Flamboyant use of adverbs, unusual animal combinations, extreme girliness.This is standard Engrish advertising, although who knows what for.We at Engrish school wish to see you soon, although not so welcoming for a store.

Burning, Hoffee, Cups

So here, live hockey is available at 8:00am if you buy the special channel (which also shows Nascar and wind-surfing to demonstrate its obscurity). Hockey with coffee is somehow more stressful than with beer.On a side note, did you know you can book him for a party? Great idea no?
We enjoyed this, although pizza here didn't match up.
Ya we're fans for at least 7 games/year. And, for the second time since we've been here, Canada made the international news! Mostly about this. Imagine the questions I got at work during the next day's fire alarm.Eventually we celebrated the efforts with preposterously priced Canadian beer.

Further Fukuoka

Yatai are intimidating food carts where you enter through curtains to eat with locals. Barry made me go there twice.Due to karma, Barry had to eat a whole dried salted fish there. Thank you, goddess of stone sculpture with your numerous assistants.Other food choices included an unexpected Canadian BBQ restaurant.Look, Canadian hamburgers, complete with lotus root and pumpkin chips!I think we liked Japanese BBQ better.The dimensional drink (sake?) menu did not enlighten us, so we made the wrong selection.And finally, we went to a baseball game, where Barry got cheering sticks with stickers! You can see him attempting the cheers here.This proves that balloons are also for adults.
