    Aki is way too spastic with her hands, almost smacking emma and slamming the table, the mic picks up the slamming. WTF stop slamming the god damn fvcking table!!

    My favorite conbini hack is 7-11 egg salad sandwich and karaage on a stick.  Put 2 karaage inside each sandwich half.

    When I was studying abroad in Japan, my favorite convenient store is for sure 7-Eleven <3 I also did a project for my Japanese class while there on which convenience store college students preferred and a majority liked 7-Eleven, followed by Family Mart (because of Famichiki!) 🙂

    I had the peach kit kat in a japan snack box and it punches you with a strange sour tart flavor, but then gets softer and is really nice.

    I really need to try more of the hot combini food next time I am over there. On our last trip we would typically have a proper good breakfast at the hotel, a bowl of ramen or similar for lunch and then combini snacks or smaller noms for dinner (my wife was normally at the point of not being able to walk much by then), and we would normally stick to the cold stuff (7-eleven strawberry and cream sandwiches………………………………………………), but I think I shall definitely be on the chicken and other hot stuff next time.

    12:09 That isn't a Japan thing, it's an American thing. They got it from America. (hence why it's in English, "Sea Chicken" シーチキン)
    Chicken of the Sea is the most famous canned tuna brand in America, and that's how they adapted the phrase from it.

    For the Jagariko hack, if you add sakeru cheese, you can make cheesy mash potatoes!! ( it was a trend last year I think? It’s called Jagariko aligot)

    Find Rakkan Ramen! VEGAN BROTH. Literally the best ramen I've ever had. They have stores in LA but originate in Tokyo. Get the Spicy Miso Garnet.

    "I just wanted you to eat butt man noodles" 😂 I also love those little vitamin C drinks, I drink them when I think I need a Vitamin C boost.
