Ok: it’s settled. This is officially my favorite challenge ever, and I want to do it every week from now on. Hell, I want to make an entirely separate series just based on this challenge. This will be the mokbang of the future. What other foods can we eat here? No wait – that’s aiming too low: We should be doing this at restaurants. How good of a food critic can you be when someone else’s hands are blindly feeding you. Can you appreciate the subtlety of flavors? Discuss. Oh god, I loved doing this so much!
On another note: I spoke with some people at Breaker about our movie theatre experience, and they told us it was uncommon, and that we were probably just in a bad theatre. We didn’t really have a point of comparison for it in Japan, since it was the first theatre we ever went to, so we can’t say that all theatres are like this, of course. We were just amazed at how quiet the whole experience was, especially for a movie like Civil War, a blockbuster. It was more like a block-unsettler. Otherwise, another thing we didn’t talk about: we saw a lot of people going to the movie alone. The girl beside us was watching it by herself. And we saw plenty of other people walk in their on their own and sit by themselves (there was no one sitting beside them). I don’t remember seeing people watch movies alone in Korea. Fascinating!
Also, hey: isn’t Spudgy SUPER ADORABLE on the bike? Oh my god! I’m so happy! We’re taking him out on the bike every day, and he’s getting a lot more used to it. For the first couple of days we took him to and from the park close to our house. Then we started taking the long way back. And now we’re taking detours, riding through the forest, and he’s got his head up and he’s sniffing everything and seems to really be liking it. We’ll see how far we can take him :D
Ok, well that’s it for now. Off to the Sailor Moon exhibit!
