1,000 Yen Meals Day 298: July 16.
I went to the parks today. On a holiday. What? That was stupid. Eating food? Not stupid. Here’s what I ate:
▪️Morning Smoothie: (not counted)
▪️Boring-ass Steamed Veggies: (not counted)
▪️FIDDY Bento: ¥215 (original price: ¥430)
▪️Curry Rando White Bread Sandwich: ¥95 (original price: ¥119)
▪️Mochi Turds: ¥162 (original price: ¥324)
💱 Grand Total: ¥472
✅ Money Leftover: ¥528
Was gonna get SOBBAAA tonight, but I was lured by the FIDDY bento I haven’t seen in a while. Should have passed on the curry rando white bread sandwich. But those mochi turds? Sooooo good.
Aight. That’s it for today! See y'all あした!
Getting my obnoxious energy before our Jesus Reigns event with JTG.
I am so thankful that God provided me with the connections to come to this nation and serve the people here.
Also, if you haven’t seen it yet... I have a vlog up! Link in bio!
Bec carried my beloved Mr. Potatohead around with her when she hit up Disneysea with the gang. She even filled him with magical milk chocolate popcorn - miraculously I even got a taste! .
I am on a mission to get the Buzz lightyear in his rocket and alien buckets now!
Snapped this pic on my ride home from BUTT SUMO PRACTICE! (Stay tuned!)
I took this picture with my #samsunggalaxys7 and cleaned it up using the photo editing app #afterlight . It was my first time using the app. What do you think?
And there I was, chucking an old man’s mud-filled books and other things into one of the long lines of trash.
I was a bit hesitant to go today - much easier to rest up, and I was feeling kinda bad the day before.
But I went.
No pictures today. We were all told not to, and rightfully so.
I thought things were bad in Takahashi. Absolutely no comparison to Mabi.
Yet, the man we helped out seemed so full of joy. Loved to talk. He was an active (non-disaster) volunteer helper himself. Cracking jokes. “If you look around, you might find some 10000 yen bills ($100), haha.”
“No, no, no, I won’t take anything!” I said.
He had a load of fishing gear to throw out, and talked about his trips to Canada.
Later in the day, another volunteer asked if I was from Tochigi (my license plate). I said no, then he said they had driven 9 hours from Tochigi to get here for the weekend. Wow! Dedication.
Overall, a great experience. If you want to get involved, check out this page. Just know - should have some decent language ability if you want to participate.
