Every few weeks, something peculiar happens to me ><.
One of the tell tale signs is when I start to use this emoticon, ><, a lot.
This is usually followed by imaginary smells of miso and soy sauce in the air.
Then, small black hairs begin to grow on my forearm.
What’s happening is this:
The 25% of Japanese in my blood is coming to the surface.
So, how do I cope with this sudden influx of Japaneasyness?
First, I seek out or make Japanese food, like these Sushi and Rice balls that I jerry rigged together last week. (BTW The drink in the picture is home made Horchata. Maybe I am a bit Mexican as well?)
In any case, if Japanese food is no where near, I am forced to cope through song.
More specifically, through Japanese Enka. For those of you who don’t know, Enka is a traditional Japanese style of music with themes of lost love and home town longing. Tonight, since I could not find any Japanese food, I had to relieve myself through a song entitled Kita Guni No Haru or Springtime in the Northern Country Side. Below is my rendition, and the first ever performance of Japanese Enka in the Sudan.
Let Me Know What You Think!
You almost scared me with the intro! =)) You have a nice voice! You sing, I dance. Now I am thinking of dancing using a Japanese song! =))

Hahaha, I can’t help it, too much passion sometimes.Thanks. You should! I’m gonna do one with some good dance moves when the Japanese in me hits again.
