Eat Your Sushi: Ep 4

Hello everyone! We just had the best week ever? Did you have a great week? Because ours was awesome! We just moved into our new home! And I realized that most of the sentences this post are going to end with exclamation marks. Because we’re so pumped!

You know, it feels like so much has happened since we moved to Japan, but it’s only been one month. One month! It feels like we’ve already been here for a year. Moving into our house alone feels like it was six months ago, even though it was just last week. Making that Ikea bed was a month in solitary confinement. Hard times, those were. Hard times.

And our neighbours are so lovely. We didn’t tell you about another neighbour we met. Our realtor took us only to meet the neighbours that directly touch our house. One day, though, we met a neighbour that was three houses down. An older man who, lucky for us, speaks perfect English! And he had a really nice old dog named Atom. I was able to pet the dog profusely, because I miss Spudgy so much. I’ve been profusely petting just about every dog that I can get my hands on. Anyhow, the man said if I needed any help I could ask him, which was really kind of him. I also met another neighbour outside of the scope of our initial door knocking and cookie giving. I was talking with the sweet grandmother outside and one of the neighbours who didn’t answer the door when we knocked because they were out of the house finally got back and saw me, so I tried talking with her as best as I could. The grandmother was explaining in Japanese where we’re from and what we do, and I looked at our neighbour and started gurgling. Not intentionally, mind you. I was trying to say “nice to meet you,” but I forgot how to say it. So I looked at her with what would probably be interpreted as a constipated face, and I kept on thinking “stop being delicious stop being delicious what is that in Korean?” until it finally came out HAJIMA MASHITE! Which isn’t the right pronunciation, I know, but it’s understandable at least, and significantly better than sweating and grunting.

Also, we haven’t really done a meet up here in Tokyo yet, and now that we’re kinda settled in I think we’re ready to try! But we want to try something a little different: so, on March 5th, in the YouTube Studio in Roppongi Hills, we’re going to be filming an episode of Eat Your Sushi, and we’d love to have you take part in it. Click the link here to sign up! We’ll be telling some stories, answering your questions in person, playing a challenge which we’ll need your help with, and taking punishments as well. I’m not sure how it’s going to turn out. We haven’t really filmed anything like this before, but we have done something like this when we were on tour, so we’re excited! And nervous!

So that’s it for this week! We’re off right now with my new grandmother (she’s mine I tell you mine!) to city hall to pick up specific garbage bags for disposing batteries. Yep. They got special bags for that. She’s gonna show us how to get them. Ok bye!

  1. I’m glad you’re having a great time(and that Martina is doing well), when i visited Japan last Dec/Jan going through bic camera and yodobashi and those huge stores was amazing (and i agree with Martina, Kirby is my fav in smash bros cuz he floats). Unfortunately my week wasn’t as good cause i got stolen and they took my wallet that had my purikura, fortunes and gashapons from Japan and also my cellphone that had a super cute pikachu flip case T.T, but at least i’m okay! As the japanese say shoganai~

    I remember spudgy being an awesome green, but when you got him he was only white(ish)

  2. Spudgy had a green color for his back. IKEA is my favorite store ever! It is my happy place. Question (or two) about IKEA: Do you have one there and can you film one of your trips the next time you go? It would be great to see how they have it set up.

    By the way, my family has been watching your success and growth since you first moved to Korea. Thanks for letting us enjoy your adventures with you!

  4. Spudgy’s rocking mohawk was green. And I would find the guinea pig petting zoo terrifying. Guinea pigs plan on training the evil that are chickens to take over the world O.o lol I had requiring nightmares about that happening when I was younger.

  5. Spudgy had a gloriously neon green stripe from mohawk to tail!

    For the next dye, I propose something along the lines of a salmon pink, à la salmon-nigiri-esque.

  6. Spudgy had a green mohawk back in the day~ :D like a lime green ^.^

  7. Hello!
    Spudgy was first greyish white, since he didn’t have any colours when you got him from the shelter and it wasn’t until a little later that you died him green.

    Pink should be next, to match Martina’s hair! ;)
    Hope you’re happy in Japan, I live my adventures through your Youtube Channel, so keep on livin’! :)

  8. Spudgy had a bright, lime green Mohawk back in the day! Can’t believe I remember when he first became blue, such a long time ago.

    It’s so great that you have some great neighbors in your new area (both human and canine!). Since you guys have a house now, how long until you’ll get to bring Spudgy and Meemers to their new home?

  14. Hey guys! About your sweet neighbor: yes, give her gifts! Gift giving is huge in Japan. If you are wondering what to give, from my experience living there, I found that people were most happy when given typical food from home (maple syrup FTW). Also, Japanese people love “omiyage”, travel mementos (still usually food :D). So if you travel outside Tokyo, make sure to bring her back something typical from that part of Japan! She’ll be super happy, not only because of the gift, but because you also show you understand and partake in a very Japanese tradition.
    That message was too long already – I’m stocked about you guys being in Japan!! It brings back sooo many memories! Looking forward to more adventures :) <3

    • I am from Minnesota, so when I went to China I brought my Chinese roommate maple sugar candies as a gift! She had no idea what maple was, and she had very limited English (and I had limited Chinese), so I ended up describing maple as “the blood of trees.”

  15. That toy store sounds amazing and I would probably have a very hard time controlling myself and I would end up making my wallet very, very sad.

    Skill Test: Before he was blue, Spudgy was lime green.

  17. Skill testing question answer!

    Spudgy’s first style was a bright mohawk that ran from his head to his tail, roughtly colored #A7E849. He then received a make-over about year after losing the mohawk. He kept the color but this time having two tones with his spine roughly colored #AECD77 and his tail at a darker #699A4A. He then got colored #007DDD but still kept a bit of the old color underneath and finally colored to what he looks like today.

    Or simply, he was originally green. :D

  20. Hey Martina and Simon! So glad to see you getting settled. Just a quick question: will you be reviving your old music segment for the Japanese music scene?

  21. Spudgy was originally shaved and white but later had a lime Green Mohawk!
    When you first got him you weren’t going to let him go all fluffy cause you like the shaved look, now you can’t get enough of your Marshmallow dog! And neither can WE!

  22. Spudgy was originally pure white when Martina and Simon got him but then they dyed his back/tail green (Like a cute little dragon puppy!) Sadly it did not last and they changed it to blue, which is sooooooooo his color!!

  23. Spudgy was lime green color before he entered the animal clinic salon and was pure white long hair. :3

  24. I’ve been watching your videos for a long time, but not always in chronological order. So I will have to guess. I want to say he was pink, even though many people say he was green.

  25. Spudgy had a flowing mane of bright green before he was blue. So excited for your house! I’m glad I’m on this journey with you~ (。・ω・。)

  27. I seriously laughed so hard with the information being given about the person assisting you with the videos and what not.All this makes me think of is a new group teaser, SM or YG style. I can only imagine how many people were beyond happy to find out said person was single. BIGGEST LAUGH OF THE DAY FROM ME!!!so good , so good ….

    As for the question/ contest:

    The Spudgy was Green and I remember we voted on this a very long time ago.

    I have always secretly wanted Spudgy to be the colour purple…

    Love you guys :)

  29. Spudgy was an awesome green dragon before he turned blue due to his age. (That’s specific to his kind obviously) lol

  30. Spudgy was a lovely LIME GREEN before his current fashionable blue state! I wonder if the groomers in Japan are as skilled at dog-dying as those in Korea. Maybe he needs one of those cube haircuts that were all the rage last year to go along with his stripe!

  31. Spudgy had a neon green mohawk. Pretty sure you show this pic when you show us his new look.http://m1.i.pbase.com/o4/47/116347/1/57412161.DSC_0048_0317200601.jpg

  32. Spudgy was shaved all white when you brought him home and then he was an awesome green Spudgy dragon :)

    Also thank you Martina for telling us how you stay positive. I’ve been having health issues, er visits, and Dr appointments since the new year and I really needed that perspective :)

  33. GIFTS! Dorky thing I love: figuring out gifts for people. I’m that freak that actually enjoys shopping at Christmas; making lists and themed gifts sets for friends and family. Worked ‘gift retail’ for years, and got pretty good at it. XD

    Can you find any ‘Canadian’ themed items there? Like maple syrup? Red and white home decor-y things? Try to get her something that represents the both of you and where you’re from, but something she’ll also appreciate, enjoy and use.
