I strolled through the shops and bought sweets^^ In Nanba are many little shops that seel sweets much more cheaper than in the supermarket and I found Kyoto-Kitkat! So I bought too much again XD
And I saw something funny XD A restaurant and at the entrance was a big aquarium with fishes~
And next to it you could see how the fishes would look on your plate XDD
I imagined the poor finshes seeing the table and every 5 seconds getting she shock of their lifetime, like "Holy sh**! They gonna kill me!!" Every 5 seconds again and again XD
Or maybe they think "Oh I'm happy to become such delicious sushi" XD
However, I drove home in the afternoon to meet Katrin for some Karaoke :D
But I still had a lot of time when I arrived at the Karaoke place so I went to the nearby Book-off...and there I had a very strange and for me not so nice experience with the "Openness of Osaka-people".
When I looked at some books, I noticed suddenly that a young guy was standing next to me and kept staring at me. I started feeling uncomfortable and went to another book-shelf.
He followed me(-.-;)
I felt more uncomfortable and went very far to the DVDs. A few seconds later he stood next to me again! I thought "Holy shit! What's going on?"
I ignored him, though he kept looking at me.
Then he startetd saying "Hello" and smiling a big smile. Well, he was no "Otaku-stalker"-guy, but young and quite good-looking but - I mean, I wanted to look on books in peace and not get flirted or whatever!
So ignored him. But I really felt uncomfortable. I mean, I have a boyfriend since almost 5 years now, so no interest.
He kept saying "hello" until I looked at him. I was afraid if he noticed, that I understand Japanese he won't let me go so I said, I could not understand Japanese. Perhaps that was quite stupid, inside a japanese bookstore XDDD
But well, I just hoped he would go away.
But he didn't. Kept saying stuff like "he likes my looking because I am a beautiful looking foreigner", I kept saying that I don't understand XD
But well actually it wasn't that funny, I really didn't want to speak with him.
It was so obvious that he wanted to flirt and I showed him that I didn't want by looking at the DVDs and don't answering but he kept talking and saying words in english.
Then he asked if I have a boyfriend and -happily- I said "yes!" hoping he would go now.
But, he didn't. (-.-;)
he then asked me if we could be friends. I was really hoping for the shop staff members at that time to rescue me, was so annoyed and I didn't know how to get away from this guy without being impolite.
But then I didn't know what to do so I just said "no!" and then "sorry" and went away-.-
Maybe it sounds funny but it wasn't that funny for me.
I mean, I showed him so clearly that I had no interest and he kept talking and asking with importunity..
The worst thing was, that this guy didn't go away. I went to another book shelf and noticed that he followed me but didn't speak to me. So I went outside.
I still waited for Katrin so didn't really know where to go and then he stood outside the Karaoke bar again. I think it maybe was not stalking but just by accident,maybe he waited for someone too. I really don't think he was a bad person but he was really kind of brash.
And I didn't feel very well all alone and so on~
So...that was my 2nd and not so nice experience with the Osaka-openness XDD
However Katrin rescued me in the end and we had some nice hours of Karaoke :D
The food in the karaoke bar we went to was really cheap and good so we had dinner there^^
|I had Udon on the right and sweet potato wedges :D|
Chilling at karaoke :D
Later we went home again.. On the next day (wednesday) I sadly had to drive home again (;__;)
Here are my food buys XD, Gosh I really was in a holiday-feeling in Osaka, just ate all the time :D
|Kyoto Kitkat! (*0*)|
I really fell in love with Osaka. If I had to chose a city to live right now, I would pick Osaka^^
I don't know why but since I'm interested in Japan I'm way more interested in Osaka and the Kansai region than in Tokyo. I wanna go to Tokyo too somehow my interest in Tokyo is not so big..but I wanna go there in December, I'm looking forward^^
But Osaka has my heart, and Kyoto too^^ I want to go back there so soon!
