My home cooked lunch


I used the chapatti skin to wrap the veggies and meat and ate it as main meal. I have 2 pieces of fried spring rolls. The grilled fish was bought from the supermarket at S$3.50.

Japan govt subsidized rental apartments in Kitakyushu Fukuoka 【素敵な市営住宅】

These rental apartments are subsidized by the government for the lower income Japanese. They look like the HUDC and EA in Singapore. Unlike the HUDC and EA, these apartments are not for sale. Monthly rental is from JPY6,000 to JPY 60,000 (SG$55 to $550) depending on income etc. The apartments are quite huge (130 sq m).
Enjoy the video.

It is getting colder in Fukuoka, Japan

 I love the cold weather but like it more if it is sunny and less windy. Today's max temp is 16c and in the night it may go down to 5c. I don't worry too much because I have the heater switched on throughout the cold season. I don't worry much about the humidity because I have a humidifier in my house. Overall, I feel comfortable living in Fukuoka. The things I am missing most are my friends and the Singapore hawker food.

It's autumn in Japan

 Today is a sunny and cool day. Average day temperature is 17c with light breeze. It is a lovely day for an outing. I can't leave the house as I am nursing a sore on my belly. I have consulted a dermatologist and things are going right. I should be up and about in a week's time.

I am not a diabetic so don't have to worry too much. The sore started with a pimple-like growth. Thinking it was a small matter, I self-medicated and got infected. It was painful but after consulting the dermatologist the sore is getting better.

The cost of living in Japan Pt.2 (medical )

 Medical care is excellent (including the medical staff). One does not have to see a GP first but can directly consult a specialist whose fee is not very expensive. The reason is because one is required by law to pay for the medical insurance. Over 75 years like myself pays 10% of the medical bill. The insurance coverage for me is slightly higher than those below 75. I don't know exactly how much but my wife takes care of the insurance thing. I think my insurance is about S$40 a month. Medical consultation is not expensive like in SG. Recently, I consulted an eye specialist for bloodshot eye and I only paid $10 for it. The waiting time was about 20 minutes and I did not have to make an appointment to see the eye specialist. It was a walk-in thing. Dental treatment is also not expensive. A general cleaning session of 1 hour at the dental clinic is about $10 (10% of the full bill).
