    I've never had any issues with them... even when I lived outside of Japan and would email them through the customer serivce email form with google translated requests to order.

    I decided to check my weight on a whim this week and I seem to have dropped 5kg somewhere over the last month, which is sort of the opposite of what I've been trying to achieve.

    I always loose weight in Japan. Pretty sure I was about 52kg before I left, and now I assume somewhere around 47kg. I'm not aiming towards it either, as a matter of fact I forry for my health since I feel very fatigued ...so I decided to go to shinsaibashi to try those famous cheesecakes at Pablo's today XD

    Funny that, I had just left Pablo when I read this! I bought the Uji Matcha and Azuki smoothie though.

    I went to an Onsen today for a rest after travelling around, decided to check my weight and I'm at 69kg now... when I came to Japan last year I was somewhere between 75 and 80kg, not long after I arrived I fell really ill and was hospitalised for a week and my body weight dropped to something like 65. Once I got my strength back I climbed back to 75, but for the last 5 or so months I've been working out a lot and now at 69kg I'm the strongest I've ever been and have the best physique I've ever had.

    Ow, I just assumed it since you said you went there aswell ^^'


    On another note, on my way from Nanba station to Shinsaibashi a guy passed me wearing a Madeth gray'll t-shirt.... probably first time I've seen anyone wearing a vk merch outside of a concert hall/club.

    After nearly 8 years, I think my Macbook Pro is starting to reach the end of it's life... I hoped that Apple would update the non-touch bar 13" model this year but it looks like they're going to let it die and I don't want to pay a premium for a touch-bar that I will almost never use. ;_;

    What's your main reason for wanting to stay with Apple products ? I used to love them and what the company used to stand for (etc..), but tbh I can't justify their cost since like... 2010 I think

    I don't like what the company has become, but I like OS X and I've had this computer since the start of 2011, so I know the build quality is good (or at least, was).

    Though really, on laptops I've found it doesn't even matter unless you play games. Graphics cards are like 40 times faster than the ones they had in 2011, but a top-of-the-line Thinkpad from back then will have an equivalent or faster CPU to any laptop sold today.
