    Some of these things you compare to the UK, I keep thinking, "You mean the US?" because it's such a prevalent a stereotype in the US that the British are polite and we're rude.

    Japan realy is amazing, i only was there for two weeks holiday but had a great time. maybe i go back to see even more in one or two years.
    I can not imagine to live there for 4 years, like how to finance that, also learning japanese realy gives me a hard time , i just can't remember the words xX

    Thinking about it.. yea. Except most people in my country doesn't seem to accept the uncertainties as well as the westerners.

    Well, I am a Singaporean and I'd like to voice some of my thoughts on Singapore...

    First off, Family life can be pretty stressful here too. Both or either parent is usually out of the house at work from around 7/8am - 7/8pm (But this is just a rough estimate). I must say that I am indeed thankful for my family having able to have time together despite my Father's work. As for my other friends, they sometimes do not usually see their parents around all that much. To top that off, school is pretty stressful too. Many parents stress the fact that studying is key to a successful future and put a lot of emphasis on that.

    Secondly, I've lived in the USA while my Father had the chance to study overseas, thus the whole family being able to follow suit. And from my experience, people in the USA tend to be more relaxed than an average Singaporean. I personally feel that Americans are much more easily approachable than the locals here in Singapore. Another good thing that occurred to me while I was there was that, I barely experienced any racism or prejudice from the people around. And that, I am really thankful for. Despite being a full-fledge Chinese born in Singapore with complete exposure to the Chinese Language, I am barely able to speak any of it. From young I spoke only English and very little Chinese and now I am only able to communicate in English with the ability to comprehend a tad bit of Chinese.

    Although most locals are fine with communicating via English, there are some who are just unable to speak it. There were many instances where I attempted to order food and was met with a condescending or annoyed attitude for I was only able to speak English. And on some occasions I am called names which I consider rude and insulting. Although I've mentioned before that most locals are fine with English being used in a conversation, apparently my accent seems to be in the way. It seems that some people believe that it is weird for a Chinese to be speaking in an American accent and because of that, they would want to avoid me.

    Well, it is what it is. Although I am a Singaporean, I personally do not enjoy where I live but I must say that I am thankful that Singapore is sheltered from natural disasters, less prone to terrorism, low-crime rates and a government isn't corrupted. If I had a choice, I would pick to stay either in Japan or America. I feel more at home over at those places rather than my home country.

    Well that was quite a comment and I apologize that there is no TL;DR
    Thank you for taking your time to read this!
    If you have any thoughts or anything, I'd love to hear them out :)

    I think that a move to Japan would up most peoples mental endurance.
    Where someone from the west would normally say: "You don't see that every day..."

    Instead, it would be replaced by: "That is completely normal. Nothing weird about it. Just an ad, or a name of a store... yep. Completely normal."
    ***Mental Endurance has increased by 1. Current ME skill is 100. Perk: Can never be driven "completely" insane.***

My japanese friend didn't understand him so didnt let him get in his car until he shouted LET ME IN YOU BEADY EYED CUNTBAG . I pratically died of laughter while my japanese friend did not find it amusing and started saying "translation please?" Just goes to show how different japanese humour is lol

    Wouldn't it be said as suki though? Because, although it's spelled as pocky (Which a lot of English speakers I've heard say it as rhyming with rocky) on the box, it is said as pokki.

    It's funny you mention the random encounter thing. When I traveled there I would strike up conversations with someone at a coffee shop or bar randomly and at first, they are almost startled by a stranger talking to them.

    Then after a minute of chit chat... They don't shut up until the beer is gone and the store is closing haha. They are such friendly people with a lot to say but just don't say it

    Hi, Chris, i enjoy your Video very much. I live in England. I agree with your comment 100% on "4 Ways Living in Japan Changed Me" I also congratulate you winning the competition TOHOKU 365 , we have a weekly Japanese newspaper in London in this paper , a couple weeks ago I saw the article about you winning the competition -OMEDETOU GOZAIMASU-. one thing I have noticed about this Video SUKKIE Chocolate , I guess the Japanese company try to pronounce the name SUKKIE is not SAKII but SUKIDESU NO SUKIII. I think so. Ilook forward to watch your new Video soon. Good Luck in Japan. Rakutenka Kayoko

    I lived in Tokyo in the 1990's. Lived there for 6 years. What a great experience. It changed me. Japanese perspective on certain things is very different from the way things are done in Canada. I learned there was no correct answer as usually, after listening both sides of the argument, you can see the upsides and downsides of each argument and of each method. When you realize this, your mind is greatly opened up. I became a more open minded person.


    well done on the 100th video :) i think it has changed you as you see the rudeness of our uk when you come home your much more aware of respectful behaviour. i left uk for 11 yrs came back and was shocked at how rude and ignorant people are mean too. japan sounds great.

    whats their organic like there do they have lots of organic produce?
