there’s a bookstore near my house, across from the 7-11 that I frequent. it is a used bookstore that sells manga and CDs. Yesterday on the way to the supermarket to buy beer and chips (essential food staples of the -need to pass time-) I spontaneously bought volume 15 – 17 of Lovely Complex. I am now only missing volume 1. I have the rest of the volumes in Chinese though. It’s kind of weird, but at least my collection or as soon will be complete?

The cover of volume 15, the mangaka deliberately drew Risa to look like Ema Fujisawa!!!! The actress that played Risa in the live-action version of the manga. The manga were extremely cheap and good quality, the stickers were still there! My taiwan version of the manga, around volume 6, the stickers stopped coming, I thought the mangaka started to cheap out and not include them, but actually the tw version started to be cheap and not include them.

I love the bookstore very much and today I bought Utada Hikaru’s 2nd album, Distance for only 500 yen!? And it was like newww! It’s kind of like a treasure hunt because there are so many random albums there. Distance is my favorite hikki album thus far.

I once read somewhere, perhaps on wikipedia? That the First Love album sold so much because of the super high quality glossy paper that they used to print the album booklet or something, holy crap, it Is super glossy?! I’ve never had such glossy booklet paper? I listened to the album on my laptop, I couldn’t tell the difference, hopefully when I go home and try it on my CD player the difference will be magnitudes.

Hopefully.

I am enjoying the 2nd hand bookstore very much, I remember there being one near my university that sold hard to find biographies that we needed to write out papers with. But I dont remember going in once. I remembered buying it new at the bookstore then returning it … because I need 1 quote and the book was not at the library and $100. Sorry…

So are there used book stores near you?

I also realized that when people blog, it tend to be about one thing, such as, peppers, or cat-store? or MSG4. But I always write about whatever I want in a ramble about nothing, well my life, but yeah.

So far living on my own for 1 month had lead me to savor the large variety of instant, microwavable (although they have this awesome oven thingy that is kind of like a microwave) foods. But look!? I made chicken and stir-fry cabbage that my mom use to make, but hers tasted better, duh.

The chicken was pre-soaked in whatever, I just had to fry it in a pan. Although that may seem like nothing, it was a BIG deal to me. And I am getting better at not cutting my hand. Win-win.

My boss mama-san asked me to go play at the store, because they were making ume-shu. It’s plum wine? But it needs to be soaked for 6 months. Too bad I won’t get to taste it. Annnnd! WE also made the new sign for the store. I drew the chicken in the corner.

Finished product!

And i got this, but I dont know how to eat it..

500 CC! Upgrade size of beer here. Very important since I can’t sleep at night / in the morning because my cousin is talking on the phone / waking up super early to do laundry, maybe this will knock me out of tonight! Please do… I can’t take another night of 2 am and still chatting on the phone, SIGH!
