  1. >> Which one’s more popular in Canada (and America)? Wii or PS3?

    Actually, I think in North America, Microsoft’s XBOX360 is the most popular, although I wouldn’t be surprised if the Nintendo Wii has surpassed XBOX recently because of its broad appeal (of all ages).

    >> Did you watch any Japanese 花火大会 (fireworks shows) yet?

    Actually, yes, I watched the Edogawa fireworks over the weekend – I took pictures and a video, will do a blog post later. We also went to the Sumida River event last week, but left early and didn’t see the fireworks.

  2. Hey this blog looks so much prettier than your internal one. Well done! I’m adding it to both my blogroll and my reader.
