6 In Japanese learning journey (:


Dedicating all of today to studying Japanese so that I will be prepared for an oral and listening text next week! And I’m just in the mood for Japanese because I’ve discovered an awesome site to learn from! 😀 More on that next time.

Was studying and came across the word 焼きそばパン! OMG. Noodles and bread together??! MY KIND OF FOOD. First came across this term in a manga years ago and I thought that it was a ermm original creation of that manga. Like it just doesn’t exist in real life.

Singapore has loads of Japanese food but I’ve never seen yakisoba buns before. So I was kinda surprised that it really exists!! If I ever go to Japan, that is a MUST try for me. Kind of curious where you usually get them. Convenience stores? Bakeries? Yakisoba shops? O.o

I barely know anything about Japan / Japanese culture. But my interest in piqued. ^^ My method of learning Japanese right now is simply to go through new materials but not bothering to deliberately memorize anything. (:

DANG. I want one of these right now. Anyone tried this before? 😀

    Yakisoba pan can be found at local convenience stores and quite often found during festivals. If i remember correctly, can even buy from vending machines!

    Do you have any recommended sites to learn from for Japanese? Which steps you should avoid and where to begin? It’s a djungle out there.

    Is Genki 1-2 good?

    I have a really hard time deciding on to learn Japanese or Korean. Both have their own charm but I would say that in general Japanese sounds a bit cooler and looks cooler too. Though hangul can look very pretty with other fonts than the standard one and sound very pretty in mellow songs. And it’s not that many who can actually speak Korean compared to Japanese. 🙂

    Thank you!

      Hi Chris! I guess i can blog about your questions 😛

      As for Japanese vs Korean, my biased answer will be KOREAN. But that’s just me. Follow your heart (:
