Hello everyone!

Ok this is great. I’m writing this blog post in a house after a day of filming in Oshima Island, and now the host is telling stories about music videos he worked on, and we’re looking at kitties as they run around his backyard. He won’t let the kitties in. OK I JUST CAME BACK INSIDE AFTER PETTING THE KITTIES THIS IS THE BEST TRIP EVER. Wow. I really miss my animals. I got all choked up when I pet the kitty in the video. Spudgy and Meemers are gonna be with us in less than a month. Ah, we miss them something fierce!

This week was quite a busy week. We had our friends from Kobe come visit for the week. You might remember one of them from our What is Kobe Beef video ages ago. Well, now that we live in Japan they came to visit us in Tokyo, and we showed them around a bit, and played a bunch of board games. Yes, board games. We’re nerdy like that. We played Pandemic, Dominion, Sushi Go, Forgotten Island, and more. We also built our first gaming PC, finally! I’ve converted to PC Master Race. We’ll be posting a video of that as soon as we can. Whoa, was that ever a story to tell! We would have published the video about it sooner, but with friends over, and with us prepping for our trip over to Oshima Island, we didn’t have enough time. Next week, I hope!

One story we didn’t tell: you saw the gift we got from signing up for a credit card? Well, right before getting that gift I learned something special about Katakana. See, I filled out the form for the credit card on a tablet computer, and I had to write out my name in Katakana, which I totally can do with a pen, no problem. The computer, however, couldn’t understand what I was writing, even though the lady with the computer fully understood what I was writing. Every character I wrote the computer would rewrite into a Kanji character. Why? Because STROKE ORDER, that’s why. I would write the character in a way that’s totally legible, but the computer registers the direction in which you write something, and I would write the characters in the wrong directions. I had to be shown how to write the characters in the right order for the computer to register what I was writing. Interesting, eh? Another interesting tidbit: I was asked to check off a tab on the computer that states that I’m not part of the Yakuza. Bizarre how they made a tab for that. And if I was Yakuza, would I even admit it? Do Yakuza regularly admit that when signing up for credit cards? I’m confused.

Also, you might be confused by the sneak peak clip we included in this video. It’ll all make sense soon. It’s a pretty big project we’ve been planning for a while now. I hope you like the video when it’s finally ready to publish. We’re putting on the final touches but it’s almost ready to share. Yay!

So that’s it for now! We’re off to film another day in Oshima. Have a great day everyone!

  1. I didn’t know there was a Sailor Moon concert going on! I looked into it and I think I needed to get the ticket before the 31st, otherwise I would love to go! :c

    While investigating I found out about a Sailor Moon exhibition and cafe starting on the 16th of April in Roppongi, though. Again, it might be too late for me to get in when it opens since I only just figured out about it…but apparently it goes on into June, so maybe Martina can make it!

    As I type my boyfriend and I are in Toronto waiting for our first of many flights to get to Tokyo. Really excited! Grabbed a bag of Tim Horton’s coffee just in case we by crazy chance bump into you. xD

  2. Congratulation on getting over a million subscribers!! :D Woah.. I remember when I started watching you guys and you had around 50 000 subs at the time.
    Martina injured her ankle because she was dancing really hard at a club (I think she was trying to do the korean football dance move). Buuuut it might be because she was saving puppies from a burning building. They did food porn videos aka FAPFAPs so they could continue filming as a replacement for WANKs. First episode was the korean meat soup.

  3. You guise started the FAP FAP program as a replacement for going WANKing when Martina was on crutches after broke her ankle saving a puppy… or jump dancing and landing on someone’s foot in a club when you went to go visit your friends one time… whichever is actually true. :P
    And congrats on 1 million subs, been watching a long time but not really commenting much because of social anxiety. I’m trying this new thing called interacting, it’s weird. Love you guise.

  4. Congratulations on surpassing 1 Million viewers! So AWESOME!

    If you could please answer Cassandra C’s question about the new addy for fan mail, I’d love to send you guise stuff! What are you missing there in Japan? I know that there are a lot more American foods/goods available, so please let us know what’s HTF there ^_^.

  5. Just a quick question, what is the address to send fan mail? I have been looking all over for it :(

  6. Ah, the bowing in Japan :) I spent 6 weeks there one summer and it took a couple of months to stop automatically bowing when I returned to the US lol. Welcome to the PC master race, Simon! I’m very much looking forward to seeing your PC build video.

  7. FAPFAP was started because Martina broke her ankle from… dancing? or was it saving puppies from a burning building..? Can’t remember the specific reason, but because it was too difficult to WANK with crutches, you went to the restaurant to eat and film, and FAPFAP was born.

    Wonder if that shelf will have room when more fan girfts arrive…

    BTW, SUUUPPPER hyped for season 3 of Sailor Moon Crystal. This is my FAVOURITE arc in the manga.

    4 years ago
  8. The birth of FAPFAP’s was due to Martina injuring her foot/ankle and not wanting to go without filming something for the Nasties if not a WANK video; came up with the inception of said FAPFAP’s. But now that I refreshed my memory and I see others share the same inquiry, did we ever finally receive closure on the real reason Martina injured herself? Whatever did happen to that puppy that Martina save? Could she have possibly used her dancing skills to rescue the poor puppy? We Nasties may never know?!

    4 years ago
  9. FAPFAP’s began because Martina injured her ankle while dancing (although she always said it was injured by rescuing a puppy) and you guy’s couldn’t film your WANK’s because of mobility issues (camera equipment + crutches + lots of walking = bad day for all involved) and thus FAPFAP’s were born! You guys could show us delicious Korean food and not have to travel too far – the first FAPFAP was Meaty Korean Soup and it looked amazing <3

    On another note Martina where did you get your Bowie shirt? It's super cute and amazing

    4 years ago
  10. I didn’t remember why you guys started the FAPFAPs until I read in the comments, then I felt embarrassed because I should remember that! Once I read what happened, it came back to me. I’m really glad you guys do that segment, though I love WANKs as well!

    A note for makeup first-timers: I started doing my makeup in my mid-20’s, I was like 23-24 ish when I was learning. Nowadays, people tell me ‘you should do tutorials!’ I’m not good at teaching people stuff like that, so I defer to the people I learned from. You can find anything on youtube, but sometimes it’s hard to find the good ones. Below I’ve posted links for 3 youtube makeup gurus that I absolutely love.

    Gossmakeupartist is a Caucasian male, and he often does makeup on himself, but that doesn’t really make a difference in how you learn. His videos aren’t organized super well, but you can use the search bar and look for ‘foundation, eyeshadow’ etc to find what you want to learn about. My favorite thing I learned from him was how to really effectively use concealer (if you have an under eye puff, NEVER put concealer on top of that puff, put it only in the shadow below! Otherwise, you are highlighting your eye puffiness).

    From Head to Toe has been doing this for a LONG time, and Simon and Martina actually know her and they have visited while they were in the US. She is one of my favorite gurus, and I’ve learned a lot from her. She is Asian, but she is still able to show you how to do makeup properly no matter the face shape.

    Pixiwoo is a sister sister team based in the UK. They do a really good job doing the full beginning to end makeup looks. They also do a lot of testing out of different brands so that you can get a look at lots of different items. I think their stuff may not be quite as good for someone just starting out, but it can definitely give you a good idea of what you might want to work towards.

  11. I’d love to see some more makeup tips from Martina whenever’s possible -your makeup is always flawless and so inventive + colourful! Maybe some time on Open the Happy? Stay safe guys!~

  13. Japanese do like to collect stamps! :D I sometimes collected different stamps too and one time in a museum I was going crazy when I couldn’t find one of the stamps so I had to go back to find it. haha (there was one in each floor you see)
    Btw I commented about the importance of the stroke order in your Learning Japanese video so I wasn’t making things up. XD

  14. Because, Martina hurt her foot/ancle while dancing (or the martina version of the story, saving puppies) and couldn’t go wanking because wanking requires a lot of walking.So you guys went to a traditional korean reastaurant.The the name of the restaurant even was tradicioanl korean restaurant. And Martina was also using socks below her gloves because the crutches hurt her hands

    (Ps. Sorry if I have any mistakes, writing english is still kinda hard for me)

    4 years ago
  15. YES MARTINA! MORE MAKE UP TIPS!! Maybe it’s own video? I’m pretty helpless…
    Also, I would love to know what you guys do all day, cause from a fan’s point of view it looks like you just eat fun food and go fun places all day. ;)

    • Hahah. No. That’s not it at all. Most of our week is spent editing videos. We sit at home and edit, then pack up when we need a change of scenery and edit somewhere else. They we grocery shop and go home to make food. Then go back to editing :)

  16. Hey I was playing Sushi Go today as well! Really excited for your house tour video. Also, maybe if you have some photos or videos from your friends of Spudgy and Meemers you could add it in the next video? I miss them!

    4 years ago
    • Ahhh, we thought about using the footage, but it’s hard to. Whenever our friends send us videos of our animals we just feel like crying. It’d be very emotionally challenging to edit :(

      4 years ago
  17. You guys started the F.A.P.F.A.P’s because Martina hurt her ankle / foot (Nobody knows the real reason… Was it because she was saving puppies or was it because she was dancing like nobody was watching?). Getting food and filming the meal was more convenient than making Martina walk around for a W.A.N.K video and thus the F.A.P.F.A.P was born. I also think this was the video that Martina was using socks as cushions for her hands because crutches are a literal pain.

  18. You guise should try doing bacon and pineapple instead of a standard Hawaiian, it’s amazing.

  19. You guys started the FAPFAP’s when Martina broke her ankle dancing stupid at the club (or saving puppies) and since the WANKing meant lots of walking you guys decided to eat delicious food that was nearby. When Martina was on crutches had one of my favorite moments with you guys. It was when Martina made Simon do her ‘being excited about TOP skipping’ outside because she couldn’t do it on crutches. I’m also totally jealous about the sailor moon fan club. I wish they had a cool sailor fan club near me. I would soooo join. Instead I have to be a nerd by myself while everyone makes fun of me until I go to cons where I can find cool stuff and other nerdy people to nerd out with. Kind of ageing myself here but the sailor moon cartoons would only be on while I was at school, so I used to put in a VHS tape and hit record before I left and just let it run until it ran out of tape so that I could watch the episodes (I didn’t know how to program my VCR…..don’t judge me). I’m also a late comer to make-up and I fully admit to often looking like an idiot while I try things out. It’s also kind of scary going to the make-up section of the store and wanting to try things but not knowing what they’re for or how to use them. I did find Martina’s video on how to do the cat eye thing with the eyeliner incredibly helpful and I use that one often. My problem now is that I’ll get my eyeliner, mascara, and eye shadow on and it looks cute until an hour later when I look in the mirror and the eyeliner has made a frowny face on my upper lid and trying to fix it makes me look like a drunk that fell asleep in her make-up. I heard someone say I should use like a toner or something along those lines to keep it from smudging but I haven’t quite figured that part out yet…..Anyways, sorry for the rant. Good luck to all the girls out there that like me have no idea what they are doing with make-up!!! Love you guys!

    • You should try an eye primer. That’ll keep your eyeliner and eyeshadow from smudging. If you can buy elf from where ever you’re from they have a primer from $1 and it’s really good. Or if you have the money Urban Decay has their eyeshadow primer potion and it’s amazing.

      4 years ago
    • Hey there, I have an idea on how to fix that upside down mark on your upper eyelid. Don’t use toner, toner is something you apply before you do moisturizer, it re-balances your skin ph levels after washing your face, and some other things.

      ANYWAYS, even if I use a really high quality, water/smudge proof eyeliner, I will often get that upside down mark as well (my go to is Kat Von D inked eyeliner, which is pretty good stuff). The best way I’ve found to keep that mark off my lids is to just dust a little eyeshadow on. There are colors that are basically skin tone if you don’t want to have colored lids! My everyday lazy color is a light silvery color, it gives a little shimmer when I blink, but you can’t really see it when my eyes are open.

      If you use a face powder foundation, you could also specifically swipe an extra strip of the powder over the spot where you get that line. Hope that helps!

    • I used to record them too! One time I had recorded the movie that played on YTV and when I came home I hunted through the VHS only to find it didn’t record fully!! I remember it even now, I was so sad.

    • Oh I totally forgot to mention! I don’t know if you guys already have some of these, but I have been getting apps on learning different languages and they have some that teach you the different strokes you have to use when writing in Japanese and the game gets angry at you if you do it incorrectly. The one I have is kind of a kiddy one with an octopus or squid that teaches you and you have to play games to remember the symbols. Anyway, you might try some games.

  20. You started doing Fap Faps cause Martina broke her ankle While dancing at a club. You still wanted to make videos so you decided to do the food adventures cause they can be shot while sitting down and you started at places easy to get to with her. You guys kept it and, started alternating it with the WANKS cause it’s awesome too!

    4 years ago
  21. Okay, I’m insane and tried to watch all of your videos, but I watched while doing homework. At one point in time I think I looked up and saw that you guise made a new segment: F.A.P.F.A.P. The reason being, if I remember, is because Martina broke her foot and you guise couldn’t easily adventure all over Korea with all of your equipment so you split Wonderful Adventure Now Korea into W.A.N.K and F.A.P.F.A.P.

  22. I am still amazed by your stories of the two people profusely bowing/apologizing for what in my mind were minor social missteps. I don’t think I have ever heard of anyone doing something like that in the states. I am an over-apologizer (used to drive my piano teacher crazy), but I don’t see a lot of other people doing the same. In fact, typically people ask me why I am even apologizing. Clearly I am in the wrong country.
    Loving these Eat Your Sushi episodes! They are my new favorite segment!

    • Yeah, I think weird things happen to us compared to other people. We’ve heard others say that their experiences are vastly different from ours. Like how talkative people are with us; that doesn’t happen to everyone. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s the pink hair?

      4 years ago
      • Lol, I’m certain the pink hair helps. And Simon’s epic beard. So possibly the secret to making friends is proper and unique hair grooming.
        Or maybe you both smile a lot? I have a cousin that is a very smiley, bubbly person and random strangers talk to her all of the time. But it is probably just the hair.

        4 years ago
  23. Wow, that was one bushy cat! It was so cute how it was grooming Simon. :) Question: How do you film your opening shot? Is there someone filming it for you? It always looks like you are using one of those flying drone things. I like it!

  24. Cafe du Monde! Oh you lucky ducks.
    The best spot in all of New Orleans. I stalk up every time I head to Orleans, getting looks when I go through customs on route back to the Tdot.

  25. I think that it’s funny how Simon talks about how much Martina cheats when he cheats so much more often, and is a much sorer loser.

    I actually had a similar problem to the blog’s stroke order story. I was playing some brain game on the DS and it would not acknowledge how I wrote the number 2. I played that game so much, I actually started writing “2” differently outside of the game.

    4 years ago
  26. Ooo, ooh, I know, I know! It was because Martina saved a puppy (While dancing. No, wait, she was just dancing, there was no puppy) and then broke her ankle so it was hard for her to walk around with crutches doing w.a.n.ks. and voila, F.A.P F.A.P developed!

    4 years ago
  27. You started doing FAPFAPs because Martina was on crutches and had a hard time walking during WANKs, so instead of WANKing on Thursdays, y’all went to a restaurant and the segment got so popular that you decided to have the WANKs and FAPFAPs alternate.

  28. Girl Scout Samoas are my favorite cookies!

    4 years ago
  29. I have a couple guesses on why you started the FAP FAP series. You wanted to show the different types of food/restaurants in Korea and show people where to find them/how to order. And your probably wanted to show your family, back home in Canada, that yall are doing okay. And it was a good excuse to eat more food. FOR SCIENCE!!!
