This is Takoyaki! Japanese Octopussy balls!!!? Wait that didn't sound right, they are more like small round pizza balls with Octopussy inside. After you pour mayo and bull dog sauce on top... Very Yummy!

Do you know what this is?

So they are talking about the water being bad for new born babies... And everyone went out and bought all the water! I had stored about 60 liters after the first hit on 3.11 and it is coming in very handy now.

OK! We can't buy water today in Tokyo... But we are not missing any food... The situation over here is very strange...

This is great! I have full tank of gas!

After my morning battle with the treadmill I am now on my way to Nagoya, just for a lunch business meeting, then back to Tokyo this afternoon! Japan looks the same going south of Tokyo...

Meeting went well, I am on my way back to Tokyo now! I haven't felt any quakes today and it is a fine day. My back feels better but not healed yet, but I am proud of having worked out this morning. It feels good getting back into shape...

I needed a couple o liters of gas to fill up my bike after going and coming back from Yokohama, we had to retake the radio show I do on Sundays. Made it more up to date after the catastrophe, so I kind of ran out of gas. But this station gave me a full tank after of 35min. Of waiting in line...

Tokyo is slowly running out of things to get... Last it was toilet paper, now it's gas for my bike, just went past 5 different stations only to find one open and a line of about 100 cars and bikes at the last one... Might have to take the train today , I am going down to Yokohama for a retake of my radio show.

I am staying! I believe in life, my family and I choose Japan as my home. This is my home, I am not abandoning my home. Thank you all for the prayers and support, but we are all fine. I love my wife and family. I love Japan. I love Karate and it has given me. I am not loosing this battle, believe you me!

Second reactor just blew up! Not quite sure what that will mean...

Monday, March 14, 2011

So I was just going to get some toilet paper... But that was not the only thing the store was out of...

OK, I know that I said that life goes on... But, I think now that I was way too early in saying that !!?
It has been confirmed that the quake was 9.0 ???

Unreal, coming back from the bike shop and turning on the TV I am sure this is going to be a lot worse than I first thought!

I wish you all the best,

Nicholas

Bike is still street legal... But we are missing the tank, chain and some cables before I can ride it!

Got the extension on now we need to put all the parts back on and wait for the new chain before I can ride it!

And life goes on, SP Works with Sherif trying change the swingarms on the Busa!

It's the morning after and I spent most of yesterday in front of the TV, it has slowly gotten worse and worse. There are so many people out there that are missing, I don't know what to do...

There is someone in that car with the lights on trying to get out of the way of the Tsunami, better get out before the next wave hits...

We are all good! It was a magnitude 8.4 and although my youngest daughter and wife were out shopping while it happened! Everyone is home and safe! Wow, that was really scary, we all ran outside the house! First I tried holding down the fish tank, but gave up as the water started spilling over! Tokyo was not hit as hard as other regions of Japan but it was pretty darn big!

LOL this was the first 3D picture I took almost 20 years ago...

So have you ever walked into a store and thought to buy something without knowing your wallet is empty? And then had the pure pleasure at finding a crumbled note in your pocket and being able to pay for the bread and cheese...
