Hi guys!!! This is a NEW chat, feel free to ask me ANYTHING here and I would be more than happy to discuss or talk about all sorts of things with you guys!! 😊😊
First thing first, I have a few days off this coming Golden week, and would love to try out any new cafes/ restaurants in Tokyo. So if you guys have any recommendations, please drop them here 😊😊
I love any kind of food so any recommendations would be great !! 🤩🤩
Hello Maddie! I watched your video on YouTube. How did you learn your pronunciation?
Your English is so easy to understand😊
Hello Maddie 😊 I have no idea about cafes/ restaurants in Tokyo but I really want you to try a Ddungcaron in Shinokubo. Maybe you already knew about it??
Hi Hazuki!! I know it!! Ddungcaron is a macaron with really thick cream filling in the middle, right?? I haven’t tried it though because I never had a chance. Will definitely try in the near future though 😍😍
Hi Masa!! Thank you for your kind words!!😊😊
For my pronunciation, I mostly just do shadowing with my favourite animations/movies/songs/etc. I also try to repeat the pronunciation of new words slowly and practice precisely every syllables of that word. I hope this helps 😊😊
Hi Maddie, it’s good and nice to take a few days off to relax and enjoy some stress free days. As for food, if you like ramen, I would recommend Kyushu Jangara ramen… it’s wow!! mama-mia 😋
whenever I have guests from overseas and they want to eat ramen, this is the place to bring them to. 10/10, never one guest complaint & say it’s horrible… all thumbs up 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Hi, Maddie. Do you like a pancake? It is a chain store that is named "FLIPPER'S". It is in jiyuugaoka, too. But it isn't my recommendation,my daughter told me.
OHHH!! flippers in my dream place to go! I really need to try their pancakes! they look sooo fluffy 🤩 🥞
Oohhhhh!! I actually already ate pancakes at Flipper’s Jiyuugaoka store Zack. They were AMAZING 🤩🤩 !! The pancakes were fluffy like cloud and a bit savoury. Perfect pancakes 😍😍
Thanks for your recommendation Kevin!!! Some of my holiday plans require me to pass through Akasaka so will try to check it out 😍😍
I actually uber eats myself some pancakes last weekend lol
From Flipper’s?? or from other places??
Hi Maddie! "Factory & Labo 神乃珈琲 (kanno coffee)" is one of my favorite cafe! there are many varieties of coffee and it has a really good atmosphere✨
Other place @Maddie 😔
Hi Anju!! I searched the cafe and it looks amazing 😍😍 Thanks for the recommendation, will definitely give it a go!!
Hi maddie!!! I wanna ask you something. I love your style so much 💕🥰 How do you get inspiration especially fashion?? For me, Pinterest is my inspiration!!!
Awwww thanks so much Alyssa!!! 🥰🥰 I get my inspiration from my instagram feed (i follow lots of US and Korean celebrities especially), also I follow lots of fashion stores and luxury brand to see the latest trends 😊😊
omg!!! that’s why you look stylish ❤️ who’s your favorite on Instagram you following??
Hello Maddy! I'm sorry I couldn't attend your session today because I got a job just before. By the way, it may be far, but Kamata has many good restaurants and cafes.
It’s alright Sakako!!! We’ll have a chance to talk again 😊😊and I’ve never been to Kamata before, will find some time to go :))
@Alyssa I have so many favourites!! But i get a lot of ideas from @q2han 😊😊 They’re my favourite fashion youtubers/instagrammers!!
Happy Golden Week and Friday everyone!! How are you all spending your holidays??
I met up with my friend today. We did a little catching up in a cafe in front of Tokyo station (the view and atmosphere was awesome 😍😍), went shopping and then had an amazing Greek dinner in Ginza. It was such a great healing day for me 😊😊
love Greek food 🇬🇷🌱
you gotta tell me where exactly it was!
Greek food is fire 🔥🤩 im at the gym at the moment and later will go to some ヒトカラ🎤👩🏻🎤
It’s called “The Apollo” @Natsu !! Its in Tokyu Plaza in Ginza. Defintiely worth a try 😊😊
@Meya That’s a nice way to spend the weekend!! But as fun as many people have said it, I can never do karaoke by myself 🥲🥲
karaoke with friends is definitely more fun but I like to practice singing when I can too 🤩
@Meya As you might not know, i used to be a ヒトカラ junkie guy😅 i did that right after uni class.Surprisely, Karaoka in Shizuoka I only paid 120yen per 30min with drink😳😂
@Maddie The strongest enemy is the receptionist😤 Just to exist them makes you think they're judging,right? Once you've done it ,it'd have been easy!
hahaha definitely ヒトカラ can help with releasing a little bit of school stress 😁 I wish Poland had this kind of Karaoke when I was a Uni student
@Meya well to save money and time as a broke student, i had to make do with my own free ヒトカラ aka my shower/bathroom 🥲🥲
@Yasu I get what you mean 😂😂 it’s also one reason i’m kind of hesitant to go to ヒトカラ
@maddie I went to the beer festival!! I ate eight sausages and drunk a beer. It is quite good 😊 But there were so many people that I had to sit down a stair in front of The red brick warehouse😓
@Zack I get you 🥲🥲 even on a rainy day (when i went there), there were no seats available. But hope you had fun at least 😊😊
golden week is definitely a difficult time to enjoy outside activities 😭 i prefer to take time off on weekdays and non-holiday days haha
So true!! Everywhere I go, there’s so many people. And it’s super hard to make reservation at restaurants 🥲🥲
@Maddie your sessions looked so fun today (as
always✨) what topic did you talked about today?
I wanna see your session! @Maddie the Tabehodai Killer!
@Natsu We were talking about the topic “Who is the decision maker among our family members?”. Like who has more power in the family (like who chooses the music in the car, who has more say in the tv programs we watch, etc. ) 😂😂 it was hilarious!!
@Meya you’re always welcome to my session 😉😉 and oh my god, I think that nickname is going to stick around for a while now haha 😂😂
@keni I’m glad you could join our TGIF!! hope to see you in the next one!! 😊😊
I wanna join your tabehoudai hang out someday 😂
that nickname is here to stay 😂
Happy hump day everyone!! How is your week so far??
I webt to Disney Sea with my friend yesterday. The weather was nice, less waiting time than before (maybe because it’s after GW), and the food we ate was actually better than I remembered!! 😆😆 I also tried garlic shrimp flavoured popcorn, which was so good!! 🤤🤤
Nice!! I never tried that flavor before but it sounds good.
Did you need to book online?
Yes. I had to buy the tickets one week before from the Disney website. But of course, there were many tickets available after GW 😆😆
@keni It’s always great to see you on my webinar 😊😊
Maddie, you had the best weather on the Disney trip, didn’t you! 🤩 so lucky! ^^ I went to Disney 3 years ago and now I’m thinking to organise a trip to USJ but it’s so faaaaar
Hi, Maddie and Meya! This is my first time to comment this chat.
＠Maddie Your plan was so nice! I wanna go to Disney sea,so I envy you😍
＠Meya I'm thinking about to USJ! But, it's far from here, too:(
Hi Maddie! I went to Disney Sea yesterday, too! The weather was not good, tho TT However inside park was empty, so it's good for me😆💓 Which rides did you go on?
@Meya @Yui i think we were lucky with the weather and tickets 😊😊 and it was the perfect day out
@Haruka oh no, that’s a shame. But i think its lucky that most of the attractions are indoors (just the waiting part might be a bit hard) 🥲🥲 I went on the rides in Indiana Jones area, Nemo area, the little mermaid, the ride about flying and Journey to the center of the earth. 😆😆
@Meya I went to USJ on a 1-day trip before (and came back to Tokyo right after) 😆😆 so you can do it!! Also i love USJ!! especially Harry Potter world, i spent half of the day in there 😆😆
the ride about flying is called soaring :)
@Makoto Right, that’s the one!! Have you tried this ride before??
wow, you went on a lot! It must be good day for you!
@Haruka yes, I tried my best to go on as many as possible. Which attraction did you try??
That's good!:) I tried it before, too😂 In my case, I didn't go on not so much this time😵 Only Toy Story Mania.lol And I enjoyed watching a show and shopping because I entered the park late time😵💫
@Haruka Oh i see. Toy Story Mania was the only ride I missed. Glad at least you have fun though!! 😊😊
Happy Monday everyone!! Hope you are all having a good start to the week. How was your weekend?? 😊😊
Hi I hope you have so too. I went nearby bar and talked with a master. He told he tries to get younger to stay all the night, terribly drunk, lost his memory and ate ramen next morning. It was funny
Wow thats an interesting start to the week 😂😂
My housemate just came back from Osaka, and gave me this famous 551 Horai 豚まん. It was delicious 🤩🤩
You guys tried this before?? and what did you guys have for dinner today?? :))
Hi Maddie!!! I ate this before.Actually my grandma's hometown is Osaka(she's living near my house now and her father from Kawagoe )So I've been Osaka many times!!Osaka people is so nice and funny!!
Maddie!I'm jealous😍I love that‼️When my husband go to Osaka on business trip I always request that as a souvenir✨
I love their シュウマイ too🥰
Hi Maddie, I stayed in Osaka for a about 8 months & 551 Horai is present in almost every big mall in Kansai. what makes me wonder was, is it 崎陽軒 (Kiyoken, famous with its shuumai) is representative of 中華 for Kanto, while 551 Horai is representative for 中華 for Kansai! 🤔
@Alyssa I totally agree!! It’a completely different vibe went I went to Osaka 😆😆
@Yui Ooohhh I heard about their selection of food too on Youtube. They all look delicious 🤤🤤
@Kevin I am not so sure about the representative for Kanto though, maybe some members here and help us answer this 😊😊
But it’s so cool that you stayed in Osaka for a while. What were you doing there Kevin??
Good morning Maddie, one of the previous clients from the financial market I had been dealing with, during my working days invited me to join his company for full time job in 2018.
However, I couldn’t commit as I was away from my family. Tried for 5 months & it was tough, then another 3 months extension to pass everything back to them & left Osaka.
Osaka is a totally different cultural place, so different from Kanto area. However, food was really good, and lots of varieties. Even the same food, way of cooking was totally different.
Hey Maddie did you watch Business Proposal?
@Kevin Ooh that sounds tough, but glad you enjoyed your time there (at least with the food :)))
@Ant Not yet, I saving it until I have time to binge watch the whole series :)) Did you watch it yet??
Yeah Maddie, at least happy with the food & memorable time… on the food. 😊
hey,Maddie!Do you know 顔タイプ診断(face type check) you can check which type your face you have.I put the link:)
my face type is "soft elegant "
so if you get result,you can tell me:)
Thanks for sharing the link with me. It’s so interesting!! I got “Active Cute” as my face type 😆😆 the description on the website is accurate too!!
I understand you are Active Cute haha :)
I did watch it lol, but I'll save my comments for after you watch it haha
Haha yes, will be looking forward to that talk 😆😆
Today me and Meya did a TGIF mukbang with アルフォート. It was amazing!! 🤩🤩
Do you guys like this snack?? Try to guess which flavour is our favourite and also what is YOUR flavour??
I love when we do those delicious TGIF’s 😂 we have to do the Oreo one! and KitKat! 😂 maybe you guys also have suggestions for some tasty episodes? 🤤
I love アルフォート. I usually prefer center one and 2nd from the right
@Ken.Y Oh you mean the milktea and raspberry flavoured ones?? The raspberry is one of Meya’s and my favourite as well 😍😍
@Meya Definitely!! Food is the best match for us 🤤🤤😆😆
And I just thought of it, but if you like, we should also do a Pocky one. There’s so many flavours of Pocky :))
Happy Sunday guys!!! Finally it’s my day off today 😆😆
I’m going to watch Fantastic Beast (the new one) this afternoon and I’m super excited!! How are you all spending your Sunday?? 😊😊
I am going to have a lunch with my wife😊
I'll go for a drink at an izakaya with my friend today🍻
Do you go often an izakaya, maddie?
That sounds great. I don’t go to izakaya that much. Only when my friends ask me to :))
@Zack that sounds nice!! Let me know what you finally decided to have, would love to see it 😊😊 Have a great lunch!!
I misunderstood that there were 5 kinds of flavors. And yet the raspberry looks good. I think I’ll try it 🤔
Hi, Maddie! I've never watched the series of Fantastic Beast but I'm curious, tho. How was it?:)
Hi Haruka!! The newest one was so good in my opinion. Maybe because I am a Potterhead (big Harry Potter fan) and I used to research/read so much about it, so I could enjoy every little detail in the movie 😊😊
Harry Potter was the reason I fell in love with reading 😭 that was my first book ever and I read all of them multiple times (in both languages Polish and English ^^) but I really don’t like the new movies 😭😭😭😭 I wish I did
Well i did hear there mixed opinions about it. But thats so cool @Meya 😍😍 I saw the movies before the books so I just watched them over and over again, and never had a chance to finish reading all the books 🥲🥲
I really recommend reading them (I have first three in English here in Japan if you’d like to read- I can just give them to you ahahah ) the characters in the books are sooo much better (especially Ron and Ginny - the movies made them terrible 😭 book Ginny is so fun and Ron is soo smart! )
Maddie, Thanks for the session😊
I wish I could go to Phuket too🏖
Next time you're in Phuket, show me some pics!
@Meya This is so funny because actually, I already read the first three books of Harry Potter. Just I couldn’t continue after that 😂😂 (and you exactly the three that i already finished lol)
@hatsue Thank you !! It was great to see you today too!! And definitely, I will have so many photos after my trip so will show them for sure 🤩🤩
Makes sense, I guess I should finish to watch/read Harry Potter before Fantastic Beast. (watched the Harry Potter series except the final tho😂)
@Meya when you read them in English did you read the British or American ones? They're slightly different in what words they use. It's kind of strange lol
@Maddie I watched video which you tried mouko tanmen Nakamoto! In fact, this cup noodle is normal level of Nakamoto. I expect some of you mates try Hokkyoku ramen and see the hell🤭
@Ken.Y I googled Hokkyoku ramen and it DOES look like “hell” 😂😂 I feel my throat ripping apart already just by looking at it, but maybe @Meya can take on this challenge 😆😆
I think she can do. If you get feel like to try, prepare your holiday following day. Cuz someone have to stay at rest room after the battle. But you will find something new while or after trying..
hahahahaha 😂😂 will keep that in mind @Ken.Y
I came back to my hometown after two years and my mum is feeding me so many good stuff. This is the roast duck that she bought for lunch 🤤🤤
oh my gosh Maddie! I hope your trip went well! that looks absolutely delicious! i will look forward to more pictures from vietnam (if you have time to post of course)
I'm glat to hear that! Finally you could meet your family:) This picture makes me hungry🤤🍴🍗
Maddie this looks insanely tasty!!! 🤤🤤🤤🤤 I want to go to Vietnam too!!!
@Mina of course!! get ready for more photos to come 😊😊
@Meya you should come!! It’s so easy to get in now, no restrictions 😆😆
@Haruka Aww!! There will be more to come 😉😉
Hi Maddie, must be happy back at home. Hope you will have a super trip and have a good nice time with your family. Besides the delicious roast duck, the French baguettes next to it, is that Vietnamese banh mi?
Yes it is @Kevin !! This is just the bread though. We put different toppings inside the bread and then it becomes banh mi 😊😊
I went to Phi Phi Islands in Phuket, Thailand today with my family. The view was just magnificent!! 🤩🤩
Has anyone been to Phuket before?? Or maybe you guys can share your favourite views/scenery while travelling??
Wow! Maddie are you in Thailand? looks gorgeous 🤩
Yesss!! I’m on a family trip right now in Thailand 😊😊 and the cameda really cannot capture how beautiful the view is here.
Hi,Maddie！This is first time to chat here.I’m always check your instagram!You seems like happy to travel.
I’m also happy to see your posting on instagram.

Hi, Maddie! I was happy to see you today! Have a good day ahead😊💕
It was great to see you too @Yumi!! 😊😊
@Haruka I can’t wait to talk about it too!! Hope to see you soon!! 😆😆
@Chika You’re asking about the colourful one right?? I forgot the name but the seller told me it’s some kind of pudding, topped with coconut milk and comes in many flavours/colours. :))
Yes it is!
I was very surprised to hear that,because these are so colorful🌈
I was surprised too, I thought they were tarts or pies at first. But the different colours are due to the various ingredients used :))
Happy friday everyone!! It’s getting really hot today and over the weekend too so please take care and stay cool. 😎😎 You guys have any weekend plans???
I’m just going to stay home and bunge watch Stranger Things . Anyone also watch this series?? 😊😊
Hi, I’m gonna play AR sports HADO in Odaiba! I’m hyped since I couldn’t play last month☺️
I’ve always wanted to try AR games!! Is this your first time trying it @Ken.Y ??
No! I play every month!
I’ve only watched the first season of Stranger Things. Should I continue to watch next seasons? It was quite interesting though :)
Yes you should!!! It’s very addictive!! 😊😊
Stranger Things Season 4 Volume 2 comes out next week!!! 😁
Omg yessss!!! They really just left me with the cliffhanger 🥲🥲 cant wait to find out what happens next 😆😆
Maddie, thank you for the interesting webinar as always.
I got a question related to today's topic.
When i heard "scornful", it reminded me of a "scone" 🤣
As looking up, i can distinguish between scorn and scone by listing to "r" sound I realized. Are there any ways to distinguish between scorn and scone?
Hi @serina !!! so sorry for the late reply. But I would say for “scorn” and “scone”, the difference is how you pronounce the letter “o”. For “scorn”, the o is sounded like in the brand “Dior” (in English). For “scone”, o is pronounce like お. hope that helps 😊😊
Thank you for replying💓 And I see, o in "scone" sounds stronger. I came to be able to listen to the difference between them completely! And also thank you for the great webbiner today💓 I enjoyed it!
My pleasure!!! Glad to hear you enjoyed today’s webinar!! 🥰🥰
I copied your gesture saying " I'm obsessed with your outfit " 😍🤣 Hope to show you that someday... 🥰
@Serina Well, I can’t wait to see it!!! 😆😆
Maddieeee💕 I'm soooo happy that one of my big dreams finally came ture 🥺 I've been hoping to talk to you for a long time! I'm moving to Kusatsu in Gumma next month so I'll go meet you in near future 😍
Omg yessss!! I was so happy to see and hear from you @Serina !! Can’t wait to meet you in person!! 😆😆
Hello Maddie! I really liked your vlog, do you have any plan to shoot more? or any other mates? look forward for it🥰
Hi @Ayaka !! I’m so happy to hear that!!
For sure I will be shooting more when I have a chance!! and of course, I’m sure our other Mates will try to do so too 😊😊
I started this app now.
Nice to meet you!
Hi Azu!! Nice to meet you!!😊😊
I watched your crepe video!
If there is an activity to go eat crepes, I'll definitely participate🧡
I’m glad to hear you that @mao !! We had so much fun filming that video 😆😆
I watched it too and enjoyed a lot :))
Bc of covid 19, I cannot go to Tokyo… so I envy you and was shred yours happiness 🏻🏻🏻
Hi @Reika !!
