Shopping day/Journée de magazinage

Posted on 2/2/2008 by Eric Jobin

February 2nd, 2008

Today, we decided to go do some shopping to get some important thing that will help us survive thru the next 3 months. Don't forget the place was empty. From things I knew in Japan, Jusco was one of them. Unfortunately, the only one I knew was located near Noda where the hombu dojo is, and no so close from here. Then I asked my friend google and he told me that there was one relatiely close to here.

It took us about 20 to 30 minutes to walk from the apartment to Jusco. There we found a few things we needed such as: Bowls, pans, utensils, chopsticks, shower curtain, little carpet, etc. We had lunch there and then walked back to our place.

We then went to BicCamera and bought a nice digital camera each. We were lucky enough to get help from someone that could speak a relatively good English. I bought a Canon IXY 810 IS. I also bought a wireless router with no help this time. Then we went to the 100 Yen shop (dollar store) and then we did some minimal grocery. Yeah, the fridge too is pretty small.

Back home after all that walking, I decided to setup the router... Oh oh! No router in the box... It was just a router case... Damn, I will have to construct some phrases tomorrow and try to exchage it for a real router.

Tomorrow, getting better in Japanese.

Aujourd'hui nous avons décidé d'aller magaziner pour les items important qui vont nous aider à survivre pour les 3 prochain mois. N'oubliez pas que l'appart était totallement vide. Selon ce que je connaissais du japon, Jusco est une d'entre elle. Malheureusement, le seul que je connais est situé à Noda près du Hombu dojo, pas très proche d'ici. J'ai alors consulté mon ami google et il m'a dit qu'il y en avait un pas très loin d'ici.

Ca nous a pris environs 20-30 minutes de marche pour ce rendre de l'apart au Jusco. Là nous avons trouvé plusieurs des choses que nous avions besoin, tel: bols, ustensils, chaudron, poele, baguettes, petit tapis, etc. Nous avons dinner dans le "food court", 2 repas de viande et riz avec une soupe et une boisson gazeuse pour un total de 700 yen (environ 7$).

Ensuit nous nous sommes rendu chez BicCamera et nous avons chacun acheter une camera digitale. Nous avons été assez chanceux pour avoir un comis qui parlait assez bien anglais. J'ai acheté une Canon IXY 810 IS. J'ai aussi acheté un router sans fils sans aide cette fois. Ensuite nous sommes allé au "100 Yen shop" (dollarama) et ensuite une petite épicerie. Le refrigerateur est aussi tres petit.

Retour a la maison apres toute cette marche. Je decide d'installer le router... Oh non! Pas de router dans la boite... seulement un "case" pour un router. [Insérer sacre(s) ici] Je vais devoir construire quelques phrase en japonnais pour essayer de faire un echange pour un vrai router.

Demain, je deviens meilleur en japonnais.

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is magnificent blog. An excellent read. I will certainly be back.
