Hishamuddin Rais in Tokyo: Sushi News 1, 2 & 3!
ricecooker note: With the Ramadan upon us, Bau-Bau Cafe closed for renovation, leaving The Ricecooker Shop feeling very lonely on the verandah. I’ve been there a few times when I’m free enough to go and it’s really dead. Hopefully, Things will be back to normal once Raya fever dies down.
BTW; am very sorry to all sebab lama tak update this site. Been very busy carimakan.
OK. Maybe some of you know that our intrepid reporter The Handsome Rais has gone into a phone booth in Brickfields, changed into SuperBelacanMan by stripping down to his non-existent underwear and flew off to Tokyo last weekend.
and now he’s reporting from his condo in one of the skyscrapers overlooking the chaos.
Over to you BelacanMan!

autumn is here – a bit chilly – my window is opened to get the smoke out – they gave me the RIGHT smoking room – i lived in in room 327 – very japanese – all in – the net is great – very fast –
last nite i went to makan Jap restaurant near my place – lousy – then beli sushi from supermaket – BETTER – breakfast included with the room – european – coffee good – lupa bawak kopi Muar – today publik holiday – beginning of autuman – lucky i brought all that baju – i need it –
met almost all the participants – NOT sure of them – not cool enough for me – THEY did not even know Johnny Rotten – fuck – i thought i was in a wrong crowd – one guy from China, one lady from Hong Kong, one lady from Thailand, one lady from Bombay – i have NOT met the Jap – he went home over the weekend –
this place is high end of tokyo – big garden – chic street – not the place i stayed in 1974 –
i just sent an article for Oriental Daily – have all the time here – almost three – i will go to the shop to get some sushi – i m going to eat sushi until i got fade up of it – kat supermarket murah.
WOW – a bit stupid – the towel, shampoo, body lotion etc… all ada –
i need to contact some Malaysian students – so that i could start to venture out and do my research on JAPANESE YOUTH CULTURE –
TV – Japanese tv – plasma – but all in fucking japanese – 45 fucking channel right next to my computer. what the fuck it was all about – i bought a bottle of gin and martini – they are my loyal friends as for now –
i should be here until NOVEMBER – but the weather is getting colder –
saw some really chic Japanese girl on a bike yesterday – haven’t seen jambus yet – but the BIGGEST is language –
and my biggest WORRY is that i run out of KRETEK – i will be dead!!
take care –

TIME – 10.47 tokyo/9.47KL
The weather is getting chill-ier – autumn is here – bloody hell this reminds me of London – i hate this weather, plus aku tak ada seluar dalam – shit – semenjak di Malaysia – aku tak pernah ada seluar dalam – part of my deal with my self on arriving to the tropical sun.
YESTERDAY – i presented my PAPER / Malaysian Youth and Social Resistance – the coolest paper; talking about underground scene, punk rockers, graffiti artist, food not bombs, body piercing and body painting – shit – the participants have no clues of such scene – they saw it BUT they failed to understand that this is the new force for social change –
My research is on Japanese YOUTH – but language is fucking problem laaaa…. now i am hunting for some Malaysian students who could help me with the translation –
Two nites ago – went to SHUNJUKU – kira-kira Bukit Bintang laaa. this is where the the fucking ISETAN started – fucking big mother fucking crap deparmental store – just passed through it – NO INTREST whatsoever to enter it – kill me if u want BUT i will NOT be there – like HARRODS – fot 20 years in London – i just went in only ONCE.
we were brought to visit NGOs – on gay and lesbian – like PINK TRIANGLE – cool place – then went to a miserable transexual bar – which i found BORING a million time – transexual bar where some fucking filipinos working – shit – drink only tea – cost 5,000 yen – just devide that by 30 – two of the participants are into GENDER/SEXUAL study – LUCKY LUCKU LUCKY – they bar was smoky = so they pulled out – after a boring 40 minutes – some of the Japs stayed.
FOOD: hahahahh… load of sushis.. .many resturant here BUT language is the main problems – i have enough money to venture there but what to order?
LAST NITE: stumbled into THE REAL TAMPOPO – well i’m NOT telling it here – i am writing it for The Edge – so buy the next month OFF THE EDGE you will read it – i m going to be there a couple more time.
ALSO – ada warung – this will also coming in The EDGE – sorry!
GIRLS – cun laaaa…. tapi tak tahu apa nak buat – banyak yang berjalan dgn anjing – wow – aku pun ada ANJING yang bernama RAMADAN – so i staterd the trend at home.
JAMBUS – tak tahu mana yang jambu dan mana yang tak jambu – nilaaa payah ni… nak tunggu ISTERI LATIFFFFFF datang –
TODAY – another seminar – on japanese politics.
THE NET: best in the world – tak perlu render – just like tv – well kalau system ni ada di Malaysia goodbye RTM, goodbye ASTRO, good Bye TV3. i could watch anything from google video – i think STREAMYX Malaysia will never upgrade thier system because this will KILL United Malay National Organisations propaganda – DEATH TO LOCAL TV STATION!!!
ok – take care – Dont fuck around, FUCK STRAIGHT
