Before him, I didn't know that sushi can be ordered! Everything is ordered where there is a restaurant right? U got the menu, u choose then wait for foods to be served. If u don't wanna order so u went to sushi train that pick the ones u like! That is the reason we went to sushi train but not nihon ryori, as everything has already been placed on the roller??
So when he started to enjoy what he had ordered, I was still holding the chopsticks waiting for my favourite one moving towards me. Yes, I spend most of the time waiting, especially when I sit far and my favourite ones had already been taken by the customers sitting in the beginning of table! That for the first time I get to know that sushi can be ordered.
By the way, he is so sexy when ordering food in Japanese.⁄(⁄ ⁄•⁄ω⁄•⁄ ⁄)⁄
When he ordered ramen and yakiniku for me in japanese, that is so cool!
Not only ordering food, i enjoy listening him speak japanese. As I am crazy about anime and I like those CVs a lot. I feels like a real CV besides me because I have no chance to listen to a real Japanese speaks sexy Japanese to me! Anyway my japanese classes start next week and i really wanna surprise him when he comes back.
2. SPICY だめ
I used to be crazy about spicy food and i believe most of the Chinese love spicy food. On the contrary, my boyfriend cannot have spicy food at all! When we went to have 麻辣烫, he always said "wowowooww" when he saw my bowl, which had already turned into red with a lot of chili oil on top. 麻辣烫 is similar to hot pot that customers can add sauce by themselves, but once the waiter added chili for him! ﾉ)ﾟДﾟ(
So it is a little bit of interesting that he agreed to go Sichuan with me as that place is the paradise of chili haha. Our first meal in chengdu is definitely hot pot. My friend ordered special one with a pot of original soup in the center just for him. And next day we had more spicy food and he said ”美味しい”！Unbelievable!
Anyway I cannot have spicy food now, which might be a good news for him.
All Japanese love salty food? or 彼氏だけ？
When we had ramen together, i always ordered lighter base and might add more water. Everytime i said salty he said he loved it. mum told him salty food is not healthy i guess he didn't take it serious. And what he cooked at my home is also salty (明太子 パスタ と 生姜焼き）。Would like to change his diet habit and wonder whether it is possible.
i like sweat food so coffee is never in my list. Chinese around me prefer tea, milk tea. He loves coffee so much and must have at least one can everyday. Unbelievable! For me, i even dont know how to order a cup of coffee in the cafe. Recently he bought a machine that can make coffee at home. So maybe our home in the future will be full of coffee smell. Maybe I will like it then, just maybe.
Cony is my favourite character of all cartoons I have ever seen.
I found so many similar traits of myself in this cute rabbit.
What's more, my boyfriend is even more like the partner of Cony - Brown.
Our story was just like those cute stickers and we are sure to have a happy ending as well.
My boyfriend is Japanese. He is quiet and silent for most of the time. He doesn't talks as much as I do. We use three kinds of language when we communicate with each other (English for most of the time, Japanese after I learn some new phrases or sentences, Chinese when I teach him our dirty words), or to be accurate, I use three kinds. When we are together, I am always the one that keeps talking. Lucky that my boyfriend is patient enough (maybe) to be the listener.
We are definitely the A Type.
Our first date was in a Ramen restaurant🍜.
He wore a beige sweater, with one of his feet standing against the wall.

And he had a black headphone around his neck ,
which appeared many times in our following dates as well .
"He is so tall", I said to myself, because you can never tell the height from the photo. What surprised me a little bit is that he had long hair.
He tied them up into a little knot.

And yes, the third one オダギリジョー is exactly the appearance, because he also has beard and moustache.
Suddenly I started to feel nervous when I walked closer to say "Hello, I'm Julie" in front of him. After that one-sentence self introduction I didn't look at him at all because I had already felt my face going blushed (*////▽////*). We both arrived earlier than the opening time of restaurant, so we went to the cafe nearby and waited for another 20 minutes.
I don't know why I bring two little 🍊 with me so I gave him one.
The way he peeled that orange was another interesting point that i remembered till now.
Because the way I peel the orange is to tear into many small pieces.
but he keeps the peel a complete piece, which is easier to clean.
“这个可以” (いいですね), I said to myself secrectly. ⭐️
We talked about animes. So happy to meet someone that likes animes and manga as well. More points were added. ⭐️⭐️
I ordered Chashu ramen.
He paid in cash for our bill so I said "My treat next time".
Then we went to a Starbuck and had a happy but little formal chat. We introduced our hometown to each other. We kept searching online for the expression we wanna use. Google translation helped us a lot, which was definitely the most funny part.
After that I went to class and he went to his meet-up activity. I felt a little bit nervous or worried I couldn't tell. I wondered that whether today was the first and the last date. What if he didn't like this Chinese girl. What if he thought I was too extrovert and too active? What if he thought I talked too much and was noisy? After all it was the first time for me to go out with a foreigner. I kept checking my phone for new message.
After six hours anxious waiting, I received his message. A photo of ramen in Hataka Maru and "my second ramen today", he said.
Not only excited, but also delighted, I know I fell in love.
First Chinese Food
We met in a Chinese restaurant for our second date. I introduced our Chinese noodle to him.
We had many ramen/noodle/soba/udon/pasta till now.
He wore a hat that day.
Now I know it was because he didn't tie his hair.
"面倒くさい", this might be his words.
We went to Aqua S to have that sea salt icecream and took this photo, which is the very first photo we took together.
And after this we had many icecream together:
First Nihon Ryori
We had our first sukiyaki nabe on the day I finished my mid-term exam. He visited my campus and main building for the first time. I took a photo for him besides the logo of my university and that was the first time as well. He changed this photo as his new portfolio,ちょっと嬉しかった🤓
First time hand in hand
That day we met at my uni and we had meat box for dinner.
He showed a book he newly bought about how to learn Chinese.
When I was watching his live performance on that little screen, I held his hand which had already held mine. My heart was beating sooooo fast that I could even hear that loud sound all around the building.
My First Cooking
Our first meal at home was Nabe with miso base.
And then I walked him home
The story of this part will not be disclosed in text.
I bought tickets using student discount.
We went to the cinema in its last week before it was demolished.
