Shopping at COSTCO

2013-05-21 10:22:48 | 日記
While shopping at Costco, I saw a nicely dressed lady walking towards the Coke machines, with 3 or 4 empty cups of Coke in her bag.
The bag was from Gap.
So, I assumed that she was bringing the empty cups of cokes from outside.
Later when while eating ice-cream outside, I saw the same lady, with the same Gap bag, with some filled Coke cups inside.
I wonder why people, despite having money, become so cheap!

コストコにショッピングに行った時、素敵な女性が3~4個の空のコカコーラカップを紙袋に入れてソフトドリンクマシーンに近づいて行くのを見ました。
紙袋は「GAP]でした。
たぶん彼女は空のコカコーラカップを外から持って来たのだと思います。
その後、私が外でアイスクリームを食べていたら、その女性を見ました!
GAPの紙袋の中には、コカコーラがいっぱい入っていました!
お金ががない訳ではないのに…なぜ、そんなことを????

Poverty and Diet

2013-04-17 18:25:50 | 日記

I wrote about poverty in the world and then I also wrote about losing weight.
I think the more we are busy with work, the less food we eat.
I believe we sometimes eat because we have nothing else to do.
Now that my classes have started, maybe I can lose some weight.
And maybe I can become more mobile and win a tennis tournament.

Second again

2013-04-15 20:59:26 | 日記
Yesterday. I played in Ina's tennis doubles tournament and lost in the final!
I was sad, but when teammates said that I need to lose weight in order to become faster, I became very very sad!
It is one thing to lose a match, but another thing to be told you are overweight.
Oh, well, after the tournament I came home and has a nice dinner with Yuriko.
For one night, I forgot about dieting and enjoyed the meal.

Poor Americans

2013-04-14 09:40:22 | 日記

Everyone thinks that America is a rich country.
But did you know that in 2010, about 20,000,000 Americans lived in extreme poverty?
This means that the family's income was less than $10,000 a year, or about 1,000.000 yen a year (about 80,000 yen a month).
How can you pay for rent, food, clothes, and other things with only 80,000 yen ?

Poverty

2013-04-10 20:40:44 | 日記


Did you know that about 1,400,000,000 people live in extreme poverty worldwide?
They live on less than 200 yen a day?
And did you know that around 900,000,000 people go to bed hungry every night?
Maybe it is a good idea to experience it.
Try to live on 500 yen a day for 3 days.
That includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, drink, snack, etc.
