Eri and I, determined after our respective dinners, to go out and do something, tossed around the ideas of Candy Bar Bingo and Karaoke. Karaoke in the city won out – it seemed the more ‘Monday Night’ thing to do, so we jumped on a new tram into the city.
Heading up Swanston street, a little before our stop, 20 uni students get on the tram and sit down. One calls
“Good evening everyone! And welcome to TRAM BINGO!”
The people across from us hand us pen and paper.
And the game began.
4 21 7 9
I only had one number to go before someone down the other end of the tram yelled bingo and won some something or other.
And then as soon as they had got on the tram, they all got off and everyone (everyone was about 4 people) was kind of like ‘Did that just happen?’.
I’m glad it did! Because I got to do bingo and Karaoke tonight. What a glut of entertainment I’ve been indulging in!
Anyway, we arrived at K Box. They had a really up-to-date DAM (サイバーダム) setup and we belted out Japanese song after Japanese song.
The whole time we were both saying ‘This is great, because it’s just you! I don’t care if it sounds any good or not!’.
And it really didn’t matter! Although we could hear the blaring canton-pop ballads clearly word for word from the next box, meaning that they could hear my bad Japanese rap (bad as in bad) and Eri’s rendition of 80′s J-Pop classics. We didn’t care.
The bill was a little dearer than expected, but that’s to be expected, and still a 20% student discount made it ok. Had better milk it like I can. Although maybe I’ll ask around and see how I can get one of those seemingly perpetual student cards that several people I know have.
Anyway it’s late so I’m going to have a cup of tea and go to bed. And I don’t want any more of this blog to deteriorate into a “And then I…” style blog, so this is the end of this post.
