Alvinisms 218

"You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do."

-Eleanor Roosevelt

Did you know: Shabu Shabu is a type of nabe. Shabu Shabu gets its name from the swooshing sound its makes when mixing and cooking the food. "Swoosh, swoosh!"

Thought of the day: First day back to work and Preezy just left yesterday. Sorry for all you avid readers. I'll just leave this short so ya'll can see the pictures and captions. See ya'll real soon. Don't expect a lot cuz brotha is a bro ho! Peace. Love. Faith.

-Alvinism of the Wildboyz

-We did all that...IN JAPAN!!! Drunk train rides to the airport are the best!

Wildboyz are just startin to blow up! KOS represent yo! Sugoi!

This is Preez and I in front of a five story pagoda in Japan. How many people do you know have been to a real pagoda? How many people do you who've been to a five story pagoda? How many people do you that have been to a real five story pagoda in Japan!

Same as above but a giant temple housing a one of the world's largest buddhas.

In San Deezy we don't have real seasons, in Japan, I've come to full appreciate fall and all it's friggin beauty. To see the leaves change colors is amazing.

Note the homemade compass attachment so I don't get lost.

Jealous yet?

This is in one of the gardens in Nara. For some of the critics, they'll say I'm missing out by leaving Japan. I say, they're missing out by never coming.

The perspective of sushi in Japan may be all wrong, there really aren't dragon or catepillar rolls. Its mostly sashi and just fresh fish. This is a kaitensushi place that I got to the most for sushi. Dankage!

We met up w/ Vince in Ame-Mura for some chu-his and then we went to Fight Club to meet our friend Shin. Drinking in public is the shizz.

Afterwards, we met up w/ Maribel as well to play some 3 puck air hockey! My new favorite arcade game!
If you don't know what fugu is, its blowfish or globefish or pufferfish. You have to have a license to be able to serve it at a restaurant and have a licensed chef to cook it because it's poisonous and people have died from eating it.

We all flirted with death and we all survived! Maribel just had karage though. We flirted w/ death...IN JAPAN!!!

Did you know all these pictures and events happened on the first full day of when Preezy was here! Yup we ended the night at a bar called Balabushka where they have 2 free pool tables. Japan is sugoi!!!

These are my nieces Reinah and Sammy on Thanksgiving. Looks like they are having a blast. I can't wait to see them again and spend the rest of my life with them! Love you two!
