#Day35 #365JosHappyDays – Building Projections

Always wanted to see one of these massive projections on the side of a building and what a building! Was lucky enough to catch it on the way out from leaving the company stand at the Tokyo gift show. These 4 upside down pyramids are the entrance to Tokyo’s biggest exhibition centre and they are built in this specific formation to symbolise.. Nah I’m just messing, nobody has a clue why it’s built like this and believe me there are some weirder looking building than this!

It’s was pretty cool but I wanted less dancing and more building manipulation and illusions to mess with ya head. I would definitely like to see it one on some older architecture and have the classic ball of light pretend to flow in and out of the windows 🙂

Only in Japan! – Does a policeman give me a kawaii keyring

image

Long story short,  I was in the Honda shop and a policeman gave me this rather adorable keyring. Not quite my style though.. Il send this one home 🙂 not that I’m challenge the Japanese police but they really don’t give off a very threatening vibe, I mean some of them are tiny and even in Japanese standards.  But I get sense that people respect the rules here oppose to needing fear of the enforcement. Probably the safest country I’ve been to.

P.s Katie would you like this?

#Day34 #365JosHappyDays – Magical lip cream

image

This stuff saved my day! So apparently it’s real important to have a humidifier during the winter or the aircon will dry my lips as crispy as I like my bacon. Not a fun day when you live in fear of opening your mouth to much because of a cracking lip but lucky I found this stuff and by morning I woke up with ‘Perfect Moist Lips’  aha 🙂

#Day33 #365JosHappyDays – Japanese Menu Lucky Dip

image

Well this was a fun game, I have pretty much no ability to read Japanese and in here on my own sooo…  Let’s play lucky dip!  It actually went pretty well, first off with my basic Japanese I could handle getting a beer, chips and some fried chicken. (biru, potaeto, tori.. really not that hard aye!) But the fun begun with pretty much calling the waitress over and pointing at random things on the menu,  smiling and nodding, then waiting eagerly to find out if what I’ve ordered is even edible!… First guess nope no edible,  but however was quite drinkable : a whiskey hill ball 🙂  OK so now I’ve established that page one is probably all drinks and over to page 2 where I upped my game and ordered a tomato salad, weirdly the most expensive thing I bought! Next up I saw 200yen with some downward writing n thought/hoped it was Sushi,  took a risk there as it was the cheapest thing on the page, could have been drinks again but I won that round wooohoo!

So I came for the cheap beer (180yen = about £1!), but I stayed for the cute barmaid ahaha!
Everybody this is Yuee-chan 🙂

I’m impressed with their cheep beer though, check out the machine that pours the perfect pint. It tips the glass so it runs so smooth without throff that they actually require a second nozzle to finish that puts the head on ha. 
Well done Japan..

#Day32 #365JosHappyDays – Tasty Street Food

Found some street stalls selling a load of treats at the entrance to a temple in Utsunomiya. Street stalls are always my favorite, love the smell of the food and being able to watch and learn the process before I choose to buy it. However in my record all the street food tastes good and is usually fairly cheap too, leaves me more money spare to try the rest 😀

#Day30 #365JosHappyDays – Snow in Tokyo!!

Woke up this morning and it started snowing pretty heavily out my window and it’s even started settling, wasn’t expecting this in Tokyo! Snow turns me into a giddy little excited child so as soon as i had my coffee I ran up to the roof top to take a better look (Even called for the lift.. But it was too slow so stairs! haha). 

Tokyo is a bit of a white out so I tried to capture what had settle on my building.  And it the time of writing this post it has quadrupled!  Man I love snow, first time I’ve posted a happy days on the same day let alone immediately after waking up 😀

#Day29 #365JosHappyDays – 3D Printing Win!!

image

Love this sooo much! Right so not only does is that little super tool useful for sanding down and taking off the the excess plastic of a 3D print but it can put it back on too! So happy to find out the tool is spot on the same size as the filament we use so I just slide it in, crank up the rpm and the plastic friction welds both bits together.

In this case we cracked part of the hand forcing a pin in to hard but I’ve just used some spare white filament and tested out joining back together and it worked a treat 🙂

.. I may have spent the end of the day just experimenting putting in different filaments and colouring things with my new hot gooey plastic pen ha,  great fun!…  *Also dangerous if it’s unbalanced and high rpm haha I soon put the goggles on 😉
