We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
Some comments mentioned that some smaller towns might offer financial incentives to have people come and have babies (essentially lol), maybe they have family planning in mind? I don't know much about the housing market here, but I got that impression too, that once you own a house here, usually it's the one you'll die in, moving around and reselling doesn't happen once you are a certain age and commit your family to a neighborhood etc.
Maybe she has an American market mindset...? That seems naive though, I dunno, maybe they are comfortable living in the inaka 4 lyf.
It's not necessarily an AMWF group, it's for foreign wives of Japanese spouses, but close enough.
Anyways, yeah, a lot of the comment mentioned the things you did. I also have never heard of anyone buying a "used" house, but she mentioned that they are looking for one built within the last 15 years. I think she probably has a lot to consider still and was just looking for input from others who have experience doing something similar. But yeah, a little surprised she seemed so worried about money, but planning to buy a home within the year, must not be such a bad situation.
In this photo, he looks just like Frieza from DBZ. Also, you need special paperwork to bring in prescription medicine into Japan for YOURSELF. There is usually like a 1 month supply limit as well. There is also no special visa pass that would allow her to enter, she's have to hope that they don't tag her for entering too much as a tourist. TLDR she cannot legally bring Venus medication, she would have to smuggle it in. I call more bullshit.
I don't remember if it was in this thread or another, but the general information on baby fang was that it was doing a tour of pop up shops in Parcos or some other mall chain in Tokyo, Osaka, etc. and I believe Kota mentioned making it available overseas which I am assuming means an online store. It was temporary at best and I'm guessing whatever inventory she has access to, she is pawning on that shopping app. If it had been a hit then maybe we would still be hearing about it but it was just overpriced junk unfortunately. Dakota's struggle to be relevant is real and even if she has managed to save some from her stint in the spotlight, it's not enough to retire from her idol career just yet. I predict her next step is to marry the finest suitor that comes along and if she's lucky, he'll have a good career and steady income so she can keep up the social media glamor. If not, she's going to run into visa issues sooner or later that will send her back to the not so kawaii US of A.
I don't think it's that simple, I am a native English speaker and I have a hard time deciphering everything in a conversation between two Jamaican people. It's funny, at least in my case, one girl I know used to work in tourism in Jamaica so she can speak "pretty English" at non-Jamaicans and then when she speaks to other Jamaicans, it's like another language.
To quote Wikipedia, "Jamaican pronunciation and vocabulary are significantly different from English, despite heavy use of English words or derivatives." Anyways, Mira has a lot of language learning to do, but I suggest she start with English and Japanese before she expands into others.
Not to mention, everything that person mentioned can be read about under the Wikipedia entry for septic shock, just sounded like a regurgitation diagnosis. With that same knowledge base, she could have gotten near septic shock from appendicitis, which woud need surgery if it didn't heal by antibiotics etc. Lol I'm not a doctor obviously but I don't think that person is either. Venus didn't share all the details, it's not anyone's place to tell her how to eat. She may not be 100% independent, but I think she can adult well enough to determine what and when she eats. Some people lol.
Under Armor is sold here, it's just as popular as Nike in terms of number of stores and what not IMO. Taylor announcing her BF is just not surprising to me in any way. Good for her, keep him off camera if she wants, I think that's the smartest thing to do with a relationship. No one wants to face a future where you'll have to explain that relationship didn't work out later. Whether he is Japanese or not, really again doesn't matter IMO. Plenty of Japanese people do speak English so it wouldn't be impossible for her to find someone to talk to. Plus she is living in Japan, odds are high she would meet a Japanese guy interested in her. And if he isn't, that's fine too. Honestly I'm more surprised she isn't with someone who is vain like her and wants to show themselves off in a "look at us, power couple!" kind of way.
This blogger has a lot of beautiful styles/tutorials for long hair: http://www.freckled-fox.com/p/hair-beauty_4.html She recently lost her husband though and it's really tragic, I'm not sure if she will continue blogging.
I started following her because of this thread and her Lady Amalthea inspired makeup (Last Unicorn reference you guys!!), but I do agree, she over edits her pics. Which is strange because she is so thin already. The image @Lilnat posted is super obvious she warped her neck on the left side. Just look at that lampshade/choker warp.
Good thing she takes her selfies in the same spot constantly lol.
Margo is seriously going off the deep end. She cannot stand being the center of attention? I am not surprised. Japan has a universal health insurance system, as long as Venus has residence in Japan she would be required to register into it, as soon as she registered her residence. But I'm sure Manaki registered her onto his after they were married, especially assuming she is here with a spouse visa. So I'm sure she has insurance. Still though, Venus having insurance ain't got nothing to do with the hole you dug yourself Margo. I can't believe she is comparing her situation to Venus and ahhh she just makes me upset the more I think about it.
