  1. Wow, you get to live in Japan and you get paid for it? Slippers from the washroom? I guess I'll learn all the proper etiquette when I get there. It's so different from the Aussie culture though. We're so laid back.

    With hotels in Japan, are they equipped with western style showers and beds?
  2. So I should kick myself if I forget to bow lol. Yeah I figured if I just copy what everyone else is doing that would be fine. So your three year stay was for a job? Or did you just decide to holiday there for three years?

    Is there anything else I should be careful of? =]
  3. How fluent is your Japanese? And did you live there for a job or something?

    There's something that's nagging me though. At the interviews the man told us all to be careful about our manners and things like that. Apparently some people in Japan will be offended if you look them in the eye when you talk to them, because that means you're putting yourself at their level, but as a visitor you're at the bottom of the social hierarchy. That makes sense, but it's still strange because in western culture, it's polite to make eye contact when you're speaking to someone.
  4. Wow you lived in Japan for three years? Where did you stay?

  6. High school lol. I'm not that old! Though it's my final year so I'd better get that scholarship, otherwise I won't be able to apply anymore.
  7. It's the AFS Experience Japan program. I'm not sure exactly where I'll be staying if I get the scholarship, but I think it'll be somewhere near Tokyo because that's where I'll be getting off (Tokyo International Airport). I'm so excited about the home stay and going to a Japanese school. =]]
  8. You are just full or inspiration. It was cuter spelled the wrong way! lol
  9. Guided tours are overrated. Come to Sydney again and I'll take you to the places that count. Anytime in the next six months is ideal for tourists because of the nice weather. Not as hot as Cuba but definitely great beach weather.

    Actually, if all goes well, I should be visiting Japan for two weeks this December. I applied for a scholarship program and have been successful through to the interview stage. Successful applicants are notified around mid-September so fingers crossed! =]]
  10. I'd like to be named Sydney, so when I introduce myself, I can say, "Hello I'm Sydney, from Sydney". =]

    Mean girl? =O Preposterous! I'm niceee!

    Hey you've been so Sydney! How long ago was this? I hope you liked it, and if you didn't, you weren't in the right places! =]

    No I haven't been to Cuba =[ I haven't been outside of Australia =[ Shame on me I know =[
