Hi! I'm Anya (Mintea from Swap-bot!), and I'm a 20-year-old university student in Tokyo, Japan. I'm actually originally from Seoul, though I've also lived in Miami, Atlanta, Panama, and Singapore. I don't know what to answer to the 'where was the best place you lived?' question that I get often, though, because each place had its pros and cons and whether I liked a place or not has more to do with the quality of social life I had there more than anything to do with the country itself, haha.
The radiation fears in Japan are stressing me out these days! I'll probably die of stress before radiation effects me critically, haha. Since I can't use tap water, I'm currently cooking pasta and rice with Evian and Volvic @_@.
Japan does have nice cake though! They have a cake buffet (funnily enough, buffets here are called 'viking's here. Wiki says it's because the first buffet in Japan was from a restauraunt called 'Imperial Viking', but Japanese people have told me that it's because buffets type meals originated in viking ships, though that doesn't seem to be true) that everyone checks out at least once. However, TIP: don't try to stuff plates of cake in an empty stomach. You just want to throw up after a while! Our friends ended up spending a lot of time trying to dispose the cake (including dissolving it in drinks!) that we couldn't eat so we didn't have to pay the fine.
My friend and I eat dessert every Monday (it helps brighten the awful, awful Mondays!), and here's one from my latest trip:
Despite all the cake eating and stuff, I don't like sugar very much. I scape off all whipped cream from sweets and I don't like chocolate bars. I hate doughnuts. I like spicy food best, like Korean, Thai, Mexican, and Indian. Give me spices! I don't like a lot of Japanese food (especially because I hate seafood, although I like tuna and salmon sushi because they don't taste fishy) except for katsu curry don and Japanese ramen because they are aweesome.
That's pretty much it for today. I don't have a lot of hobbies besides digital drawing, writing, and reading fan fiction, but if I ever decide to show other people the first two (although mind, I am too good at procrastinating), I hope you guys will see it :D
And here's a photo of me with my friend, though it's not the one I have Monday desserts with, haha (I'm on the left):
