I’m sure I will find many ‘crazy’ things whilst I’m here, and I intend to share them with the world! As you know, I love Japan, and one of the things I love is that it’s just SO different to anything I’m used to. It’s one of those places where you really can say “only in Japan…” 😉
So… I was in the supermarket earlier, and I noticed that they were playing that sort of piped ‘elevator music’ (don’t know how I didn’t notice it before!). Well, as I was wandering around, I heard:
- Tears in Heaven (Eric Clapton)
- Puff The Magic Dragon
- If You Wanna Be My Lover (Spice Girls)
What a combination!! I can sort of understand Tears in Heaven, and maybe they can get away with the Spice Girls… but, Puff The Magic Dragon?!?!
Later, continuing my exploration of Japanese oddities, I discovered something which I just had to buy, simply so I could put a photo of it on this blog!
This has to be the most wrong thing I have ever seen…
Yes, that’s right, it’s a Hello Kitty kitchen knife. What the?! It’s like saying “hey kids, come play with this cool pink Hello Kitty toy…”. Still, at least now I have something funky to cut my veg with… 😀
