Vending Machine Ramen?!?

I'm only half-joking here. Technically it's not a vending machine, but you do drop in your cash and choose what type of ramen you want. Out pops a ticket that you take to a cook inside who will whip up your meal. Next photo is the board above the vending machine. I've seen these at truck stops but this one was an actual restaurant in Yokohama.

She Sells Out for Cells

Cameron Diaz with her toothy mug is the new spokesperson for a mobile and internet service provider, Softbank. I hear the tv commercials are pretty clever though I haven't seen them. (Note to self: In the future, don't pose next to tall, skinny, blonde knockouts...)

Two For One Sale on...

Don't ask me. I don't get the connection between clothes and furry critters or between fashion and nether regions either...

(Thank you Daily Planner Dave for also snappin' this photo of colleague Karen and I in Tokyo!)

I Never Thought of this Expression as Being Cute , But She Pulls it Off

This was taken by my colleague, Daily Planner Dave, while we were in the Shibuya subway station in Tokyo.
What do you think? Does she know how it translates in English slang?
