Tonight, Hiromi, her brother and myself headed downtown to go to Karaoke for a girl named Nao, who’s leaving to go back to Japan. Though I didn’t know anyone, it was fun to be surrounded by Japanese people again. There was another American too, actually from New Orleans. He couldn’t really speak Japanese, but he could sing a song in Japanese–which happened to be from the same artist as I love! So together, the two white boys sang this Utada Hikaru song (quite well I might add ;) ) and had a good time. The smoke was a bit Japanese too, so we ended up leaving just after an hour.. We then headed to the Rocks for a famous Pancakes House, and had a great Bananarama–banana and caramel pancake with vanilla icecream! YUM.
