Eat Your Sushi: Martina’s Mokbang

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!

  2. The mokbank was hilarious made my day. It would be great to see more. Lol. Thank you both. :)
    Spudgy is sooooo cute! I think it would be so awesome to watch a TL;DR on gardening. I’m sad to say I have a thumb of death when it comes to plants… Maybe Martina’s knowledge could help were the internet failed lol.
    Keep up the amazingness. :D

  6. First time commenting here. I have been loving your youtube channel for a couple of years now. You guys are a wonderful example of marriage.
    I thought this would be interesting/helpful for you to watch. I follow this family in Japan (my kids and I love watching them together) and they had a whole episode about Japanese waste management. Here is the link:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OafCWKqwgpY
    I hope it’s helpful!

  7. Heya Simon and Martina! I was wondering if you could do a video or talk about how the recycling and trash system works in Japan and what you think about it~ I know that it’s strict but I want to know from the view of a person who is currently living in Japan. Anyway I love your videos and hope you can continue having so much fun adventuring in Japan!

  8. Guys, a question for you to answer next week…we all know the kind of relationship you have. I mean it makes us all say ‘ Simon and Martina- #RelationshipGoals! ‘ Now, is there anything or something absolutely annoying or something either one of you don’t like about each other? please don’t say, he eats my cupcakes…or she loves Sailor Moon more than me.(come on…all that is very natural and yes who can deny the fluff of cupcakes or the power of Sailormoon?! ;)) so what would it be?
    I hope you guys answer my question, if not, i shall annoy you next week! hehehe

  9. When you are retired and you are documenting your earthship lifestyle on youtube, younger documentarians will turn to you for documentoring.
    You documentees will occasionally drive you documental but you will recover without docudrama or docuremorse.

    There is nothing wrong with black, it is a lovely lack of color that is flattering and sophisticated or threatening, depending. I wore black exclusively for years. Now I am all about color.

    Martina you looked absolutely fabulous in your black and white houndstooth or was it a check? I know that you like cute things and they look adorable on you. I just happen to like how you look when you go the sophisticated lady route.

  10. You both call each other Ducky. I used to love the Dothraki Man-Warrior nickname Simon used to use. Simon also calls Martina his Pretty Girl or just Girl or Sunshine a lot too. I love that you two use nicknames a lot. I actually call my husband by a derivation of his online username and to me that’s his “real” name because we met online first. When we married a couple of years ago, I made sure that we used that name too. It’s weird to call him by his real name. :)

  11. Skill testing question: you both call each other ducky, Simon calls Martina sunshine and Martina calls Simon pacha, or maybe pancha, I can’t decided of there is an n in there or not.

  12. Firstly, I agree with the people from Breaker about the movie theatre. I went to see movies in Japan a few times and they were all normally loud. lol
    Secondly, oh boy the importance of the garbage rules… American teacher at the uni I went to in Japan told us how his boss got a phone call (from the city hall I assume) that his employee (the teacher) was not sorting out the garbage well. The boss was the one to scold the teacher. Not sorting the garbage well will of course bring shame not only to the teacher but the uni too! And I understood that this was normal that the boss might get called if his/her worker has some issues with the garbage. :’D You bet I sorted my garbage well after hearing that! lol
    Oh and last thing, I hope Simon washed his hands before doing all those things to the food! haha

  13. Haha, the situation with the dog bags is the same for me – we don’t have strict laws or rules in Latvia about dog poops (if there are, then they sure aren’t effective) but people are very annoyed and don’t hesitate to bash a dog owner as soon as they see a dog pooping… It sucks in the sense that we’re the only ones among like four 5-9 story buildings that actually clean up after our dog and getting bashed for something you didn’t do is just… Ugh… Other dog owners don’t give a damn but I’m a very anxious person and to have someone come up to me and yell for something I didn’t do is quite unpleasant to say the least… So yeah, waving the bags around for every person around to see xD As for the nicknames, there are a few O_o Dothraki man warrior, gurl, boo… But I’ll go with ducky and sunshine ^^

  17. I totally got last week’s question right!!!! I really wanted that hoody. :( So close, yet so far.

  18. Shall I be that obnoxious person teaching you the name of the anime on the 3rd card you got? It’s called Ace of the Diamond AKA ダイヤのA (AKA how am I even meant to pronounce it) and OMG OMG OMG I’M SO FANGIRLING RIGHT NOW SQUEEEEEEEEE. Ahem. I mean, I can’t be the only fan of that anime in the comment section, right? Guys? *awkwardly flailing away*

    More seriously, I saw they made this postcard on Twitter but I had no idea they’d give it for free at the theatre. We don’t really get goodies like that at the theatres in France (at least I don’t think so, I haven’t been there in a while). I think it’s pretty cool :D

  19. Ok. So as for the question. I know of course that you call each other Duckie all the time. Which is soo cute. And then for more specific names. Simon calls Martina his Pretty Girl and sometimes Sunshine. And Martian calls Simon her Dothraki Man Warrior along with Cheater McCheaterson. lol. But I just wanted to tell you guys how much this show means to me. Currently, I’m a freshman in college. Now during my sophomore year of high school, I started to think about being a teacher because I had this really amazing World Culture/History teacher that got me interested in Japanese culture. So I thought about being a World Culture teacher. But then during my Junior year of high school I came across one of the first videos you guys made where you talked about what to do and what not to do in Korea. Funny story, I later stumbled upon more of your videos and then became a fan of the channel or a Nasty as you guys called it. Anyway, when I first started watching your videos I didn’t realize you were married until you mentioned that you were — I just thought that you guys were best friends. (RELATIONSHIP GOALS) lol. Anyway as I said I began to watch you guys all the time and it was also during my Junior year that I thought about being an English teacher instead because I was doing very well in that class and had a good relationship with my teacher that year. So watching your videos I basically fell in love with the idea and through you guys fell in love with Korea and life over there. Long story short, I wanted to tell you guys THANK YOU SO FLIPPING MUCH!!! I <3 y'all and hope you get everything out of life that you want! You've seriously been such an inspiration to not only me but everyone who watches your videos! Thank you for sharing your experiences with me. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I'll be a Nasty for life! ^w^ – Ciara

  22. Guise! I would totally move to your commune! Earthships rule! I’d even make automated tractors so that we could enjoy the garden without all the work in our retirement ;).

    I had such “Ryan Stiles and Colin Mochrie – Helping Hands” ala “Whose Line is it Anyways?” flashbacks during your weekly challenge scene. Martina, you handled that like a BOSS! My son and I were in tears of laughter the whole time. Hardly seems fair that the challenge amounted to just kai bai bo – Simon should get the front seat next time! XD

    Brightly coloured clothes DO help with positive attitude. Black isn’t that slimming anyways, any darker colour will do, it’s the cut that makes the difference. In fact, I refuse to buy a black or boring umbrella because I don’t want to bring myself down an already rainy day.

    BTW, Martina, your hair has looked just tremendously awesome since you moved to Japan! While I thought it was a mistake at first that you no longer had a pink triangle in your bangs, I realized that the very blond really brightened up your face is such a flattering manner and that the pink was just further down because it grew out. Your hair in the “Samurai Hoodie Birthday Special” was even more super awesome with the fuschia ombree effect on the ends as well. Hope you had a great birthday!

    Cyber_3 – if you no like cake, whyfore cook cake in new oven? Pie is easy as pie!

  23. Hi Simon! Hi Martina! Oh my god, the Mokbang made me laugh so hard that I had to stiffle it since it’s midnight here in Vancouver.
    As Question for the week, I know Simon calls Martina Ducky and Pretty Girl. Martina calls Simon her Dothraki Man Warrior (cleaving through crowds in Korea) and Cheater McCheaterson.

  24. Hmm… 2 nicknames I know of is that Simon calls Martina Ducky, and Martina calls Simon a Dothraki man warrior. HOWEVER, she also calls him Cheater McCheaterson when he cheats at games.

    Off topic, but I bought this cute bead the other day that looks like a duck! Oh and some that looked like sushi pieces! Going to use them for something awesome that will be seen later. Maybe.

  25. Ok I’m posting this because aside from calling each other ducky these are my favorite things that you call each other Simon calls Martina pretty girl (<3 <3 ^•^ *.* love) and Martina calls Simon something related to game of thrones (I think) to relate to his hairiness and my favorite on almost every video where they compete a Cheater McCheaterson lol thanks for the video guys you really made my bad day better. Love you guys stay happy. And again thanks for responding to my question even though it was silly :) ;)

  26. I know you guys call each other Duckie all the time. Simon will call Martina “Sunshine” and Martina calls Simon her “Dorthraki Man-warrior”. By the way have you guys been keeping up with Season 6 of Game Thrones?

  28. I am guessing that the Japanese guy on your end card on the phone is Dan! I can’t imagine anyone just waiting in front of the turnstiles for no reason, especially a country as courteous as Japan.

  29. The whole garbage thing sounds overwhelming and scary to me. There are so many times when I’m running outside in the morning to put the trash out cause I heard the garbage truck coming down the road. I may have a tendency to forget things. It actually made me totally happy that you do a birthday pie thing instead (or at the very least would like to). My family usually does birthday pie instead and people are always saying how weird we are. We always do it for my brother especially since he doesn’t like cake and his birthday is on pie day! I used to do lemon meringue pie or blueberry cheescake for my birthday. The main thing is that I actually don’t like a lot of frosting. I don’t mind the cake part so much, but I’m just not a huge fan of frosting. When I used to have cake (before they told me to go gluten free – insert sad face here) My sister would make a chocolate cake with chocolate pudding in the center and whipped cream and fresh raspberries on top. I will say that that was pretty delicious. As for the question I know you call each other ducky but I’m not so sure on the other. I was thinking that is was bunny, but I could be totally crazy. Also, spudgy was totally cute in the bicycle basket :)

  30. HAHAHA I loved Martina’s Mokbang!! It was so hilarious! And Spudgy is so adorable in the bike basket. I know that one of the nicknames you guys call each other often is ducky. And I think it was Simon that mentioned he called Martina sunshine in a video years ago when you guys did the cake decorating challenge!!

  31. Oh my god, I want some of those cute little house kits! I love building stuff like that. When I was little, my parents somehow procured one of those really extravagant Victorian-style dollhouse kits, and we spent pretty much a whole summer assembling it as a family, with all the furniture and everything. It was a really memorable experience for me as a child…including all the pieces we broke trying to pop them out. XD

  32. :O Why does it say “Sludgy’s First Bike Ride?” I love how snug he is in his basket!!!! I wish we had those power-assisted bikes here (if we do, I’ve no idea where to get one), I’d be biking everywhere! ^_^ LMAO at the Sumo-Man-hands erhmaigerd! Hands all in! And he made you lick his finger then ice cream facialed you! Simon, you’re SOOO BAD!!! I’m laughing so hard I’m crying!!! ORIGINAL CUPCAKE!
