Japanese discount store Don Don Donki’s second outlet in Singapore will have a new “mobile foods” concept to cater to busy workers in the CBD area – and don’t worry, the baked sweet potato, one of the store’s most popular items, is still on the menu. It will have a Japan Mobile Foods section, which offers takeaway items such as yakitomorokoshi (Japanese-style grilled sweet corn), takosen (octopus takoyaki sandwiched between Japanese crackers), watagashi (fruity and colourful cotton candy), and gelato. Unlike the store’s flagship Orchard Central store, which is open 24-hours, the new outlet will operate daily from 8am to midnight, although it will open at 10am on its first day of operation.

A Japanese company has created a device that offers a sense of security for women who live alone, by projecting a moving shadow of a man onto a window curtain. In Japan, many working adults move out of their parents’ home and live alone, or relocate from the countryside they grew up in to work in the city. In order to help protect women from creepy stalkers, Leo Palace 21 recently announced a possible solution “Man on the Curtain”.
The Japanese never fail to impress us with their artistic and quirky creations, such as these beautiful and life-like portraits, an unbelievably smooth and shiny ball made of aluminium foil, or even these creepy “snowmen”. In the tweet, @mina_naya posted some of her amazing creations, which are inspired by the characters from “Kantai Collection” and “Magical Girl Madoka Magica”. For the skeptics who don’t believe these are really flat images, @mina_naya had provided photos of the same illustrations at a different angle.

While Japan was hit by heavy snowfall recently, Fukui prefecture reached a record-high of more than 1.30 metres last week. For some, it was a good reason to snuggle up in warm blankets at home, or to never leave the kotatsu — a low, wooden table covered by a futon, with a heat source underneath. For others, it was prime time to build snowmen, snow Pokemon, snow Totoro, and in some instances, chillingly eerie snow Noh masks. 親の車埋め尽くしたった pic.twitter.com/zfxbxkICYU
