Native Expat

After living in Australia for 19 years, it’s nearly two months since I have moved back to Tokyo, Japan. Re-reading my post when I wrote at a month mark, I do feel that things have started to shift from being a tourist to a resident. Being a Native Expat is a challenging identity to come […]

Tokyo; the very name conjures up images of neon flashing lights, humans crunched in crowded subways, cute schoolgirls with pigtails and plaid skirts holding hands, skipping with purple-colored cotton candy in hand, and drunken businessmen trying to catch the last train home. Stereotypes or reality? 100% reality. Tokyo is the Capital of Japan, and the […]

Native Expat

After Mount Fuji, cherry blossoms and ninjas, I think Japan is famous for food. Ramen 🍜 , sushi 🍣 , sake 🍶 , matcha 🍵 are some of Japanese food that are globally available, known and craved. Food is one of the most enjoyable ways to experience another culture and something I have got stuck […]

Seattle to Saijo

Finally getting around to this blog post! Last year I was in Singapore for almost the entirety of spring break so I had no idea how busy it is at school. Each morning this week we have had an all-school staff meeting from 9am to 12:30pm and it has been quite exhausting. Finally today (Friday) we don’t have […]

Maz On The Road

After the slow pace of Myanmar, I landed in one of the most hi-tech places on the planet, Tokyo, and experienced a kind of reverse culture shock. There are so many people. The men wear trousers not skirts. The doors open automatically. The toilets have a mind of their own and should come with an […]

We arrived in Tokyo Tuesday evening ridiculously jet lagged to a midst of neon signs whizzing past us on the Subway to our Hostel (Hostel Anne, Ryogoku) £20 per night.
