Break down: New Years Holiday my SANYO Aqua AQR-261b decided to stop cooling. What better timing… On the bright side, the leaning house seems to seek and find equilibrium with outside temperature rather quickly. Which means in 0c weather it’s pretty close to 0c indoors (3-4c) and so the food doesn’t go bad right away. As the temp indoors is cold. I only noticed … Continue reading Refrigerator troubles in Japan. (SANYO Aqua AQR-261b)
As mentioned before I bought a pressure washer. But what I didn’t expect is the anti-mould bathroom spray to be so effective on the brick. As this is a rental house I shouldn’t even be doing this but I’d rather clean what I can instead of waiting for the not-so-quick to respond owner to do anything about it.

Septic tanks… much like sewers are things vital to our way of life but we’d rather not think about. Living in Tokyo I never had to deal with calling a company … Continue reading Septic Tank
My morning ritual at some time started off by going to a coffee shop or convenience store to get a coffee. Convenience store coffee were introduced in 2010 ish in Japan. The auto-freshly-milled-&-brewed coffee for 100¥ is great. On a side note at said convenience stores. Ordering a small cup and accidentally pushing the big button fills the small cup nicely. Anyways… Waste coffee ground … Continue reading Do waste coffee grounds prevent weeds?
