Sneak-Peek Sunday!

My book, Lost With Translation, published by Discover 21 Publications, is set to appear on shelves in Japan (and on Amazon) in late January/early February.  It will be comprised of signs in funny English that I’ve found here in Tokyo.  Enjoy this little look into the book!

Personally, I like my rice bowl to be polished, lest I get some ceramic mixed in with my food.  However, if they’re referring to my rice, polishing seems a little odd and makes me think of shoe polish, which is completely unappetizing.

Sneak-Peek Sunday: To Smoke or Not to Smoke?

My book, Lost with Translation, is set for publication from Discover21 Publications on November 15th.  Please enjoy this funny look at one of the signs from the upcoming book!

Spotted at Starbucks in Shinjuku

At Starbucks, patrons can smoke for free, even on the terrace.  That’s what this sign says anyway.  Smokers will soon flock to this Starbucks in Shinjuku in order to smoke as much as they would like, all for no cost.  No I’m joking. I think they forgot the verb in the sentence.  They meant, “please let us BE smoke-free.”  People who go there for the free smoking will be sorely disappointed.
