Ghanaian filmmaker Arthur Musah was interviewed by TIA on his latest documentary film One Day I Too Go Fly which is about four African youths from different countries and socio-economic backgrounds as they pursue knowledge at America 8767 s premier technological university the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Musah follows the lives of these African students during their four years in MIT. In this interview we get to know Musah 8767 s motivation and his experience filming these individuals both in MIT and also in their countries.
Come to think of it, I do remember seeing a woman with bright purple eyes at the credit union about a decade ago and she told me she had contacts, but I haven 8767 t seen that around here since then granted My town has only 855,555 people and is no large metropolitan trendy place to live (and I certainly don 8767 t party out a lot nowadays)! I have seen pics of that Human Barbie girl on the internet and she must use them, since her eyes look HUGE ! Well, I knew that people could look very different with make-up and effects pieces on their faces, but it always surprises me when I see such a huge variance between the before and after pics like on that web site Ken referenced.
Secondly, I’m by no means saying that “ All Japanese women are like this.” Because, okay, some are also like “that.” So I know I’m painting with a broad brush, and naturally there are exceptions to everything. Somewhere out there, there’s a 85-pound house cat and a Labrador Retriever small enough to fit in your pocket too. But if you ask me to describe a cat or a dog, I’m gonna try to give you a realistic picture without writing an encyclopedia in the process. So yes, I’m generalizing , and I’m sure your girlfriend/wife/co-worker/neighbor is really a wonderful person and a fabulous lover. In that case, it’d probably be in everyone’s best interest not to show her this article, really.
8. Do not answer his phone or search his phone. Men hate when women invade their private space and they do not want to answer to their indiscretions. They do not want to put the woman in a position for her to witness messages in his phone that may hurt her. You lose your right to question him about anything dis-satisfactory you found in his phone since you are by law not suppose to search phone. 8775 Anything you get, you must take, you went looking for something and you got what you were searching for 8776
They don 8767 t necessarily wear contacts, but as a girl, let me tell you that there are MANY things you can do (. fake lashes, make-up tricks) to make your eyes look bigger.
You know that even high school students aren 8767 t allowed to wear make-up in Japan, right?
So many of them are natural beauties. It 8767 s so sad that some start transforming themselves into completely different people once they 8767 ve graduated just because they can. I 8767 m not a big fan of all this fake stuff.
I don 8767 t mind if people take care of their beauty, not at all. But wigs, fake lashes, contacts, even surgery etc. that sounds like carneval or Halloween to me. :(
An older woman asked me: “How many mixed cultured couples do you know who have grown old together?” True I didn’t know any mixed elderly couples, but perhaps this is because there is a greater diversity of Africans living in the diaspora than there were 85 years ago. Furthermore, as a new generation embracing and becoming more comfortable with cultural differences, might not some of us become examples for future generations of the mixed-culture couples that lasted, if we last?
8. Do not insult him in front of his friends or in public. You can even pretend to support his stance in front of his friends but do not damage his social image or reduce his peers 8767 respect for him by constantly asserting your opinions and emasculating him. This is the reason why he may be forced to insult and humiliate you so that he can retrieve his masculinity and peer validation. It is best to acquiesce and make him look good in front of friends. So do not become argumentative with him during a debate, if you are not on his side, 8775 it better you no say nothing 8776
I recently started dating a japanese girl here in the states. She has been here about 65 years and is 9 years older than me Im 86 btw. Things couldnt be more amazing than they are. She is divorced and has a 65 year old but she is awesome and doesnt care I dont make a ton of money. She has been very good at teaching me japanese and I have been helping her son with reading and spelling. The article was really interesting but she doesn 8767 t sound like the women you have written about. Maybe I got a rare one? Anyways good luck to anyone seeking these foreign beauties, my gf gets prettier everyday!! =)
A few months later and okay, I know this is kind of a theme, but that’s just how things worked out I met this girl in a bar in Shinjuku and we ended up in a love hotel. We paid the money for a room with lots of mirrors, went in, started making out on the bed, and then just as we were about to, as they say, consummate matters, she looked up at me and asked, “Are you my husband?”
I was like, What the hell? Are all the women in this country mental?
And you know I’m not trying to lead anybody on, but for Christ’s sake. I mean, really, have some timing.
I looked at her and said, “I think we can safely conclude that, for tonight, baby, I am.”
However, as I got older and continued to date people from other countries, I realised there was always a barrier in the way, almost like a culture clash, and language, I felt, was the ultimate clash as it is one of the key markers of culture. It didn’t help when I went to their houses and the family would purposely speak in their language to exclude me, which reminded me that I wasn’t one of them. It was for this reason that I began to look for like-minded guys who were also from my own culture, guys I could relate to. “Dating is one thing, but marriage is another”, an aunty told me. She’s right. Marriage and dating are two different things, clearly, but which factors are fundamental when deciding whom to marry? Is culture one? Should it be?
Perhaps this is my fault for not painting a fuller picture, but I was trying to write about Japanese women, not so much myself. However, let me clarify and say that the women I 8767 ve dated I 8767 ve met in coffee shops, grocery stores, the train, restaurants, and yes, on rare occasions, bars. If you really want to hear about me talking to a girl in the frozen food section of 7-66, well, I guess I could write that. But unlike the women you described, they were very ordinary people with good jobs: a doctor, an author, a nurse, a teacher. Not sure what 8767 s so bad about being a receptionist either, although I 8767 ve never been out with one, so maybe they 8767 re terrible folks.

There are differing views about same-sex marriage within the Anglican communion, putting the American and Scottish Episcopal churches at odds with the majority stance on traditional marriage. African Anglican leaders, the Archbishop Nicholas Okoh of Nigeria, Stanley Ntagali of Uganda and Onesphore Rwaje of Rwanda boycotted the global Anglican Communion meeting, as the rift over same-sex marriage and LGBT rights in the Anglican Church widens.
So can you “get” a Japanese woman?
Well, if you spend enough time fishing, you’re bound to hook a boot or an old tire eventually. But in the West, if you’re a handsome, well-spoken guy with a good career, you can date sexy, generative, and highly successful women.
Here, well, you’ll get something, but it’s unlikely to be someone on your same level. Anyway, hot dog bun.
Nowadays, in this current generation of or recently married, we don’t so much as bat an eyelid when we see mixed couples, but as one uncle put it to me, “Where would you live when you retire? England is not your home. If you married a Nigerian, how would you cope if he wanted to retire in Nigeria? Think about it. I doubt he will want to move back to Congo. You will just die in Nigeria. Love blinds common sense.”
In the end, Japanese women aren’t simple and gullible, although they’re good at pretending to be. You really shouldn’t mess with ladies who are better than you at math, you know. And like women anywhere, they can be controlling, angry, and vindictive if you screw up. Do not screw up. Trust me on this. They want a house, kids, and a husband who brings home a paycheck. That’s the game they’re playing, and this is their home turf.
As for Roppongi, although it has a few seedy places, it 8767 s actually one of Tokyo 8767 s higher-class neighborhoods, and home to several great museums and restaurants. It shouldn 8767 t be mis-characterized as a bad place. It 8767 s nothing compared to Shinjuku, for example. Anyway, I 8767 ve only been to the bars there a handful of times in a decade, for whatever that 8767 s worth. Too loud and crowded for my tastes.
It just started out as curiosity because those are such impressive trombones and I just wondered how much they 8767 d cost if they dropped them so I had some time on my hands and looked it up, just for giggles and grins (and because you CAN nowadays with the internet BTW, I started as a trombone player but went to the Tuba and String Bass). I was wondering why trombones would be used as props though, not something you usually see at a wedding LOL, plus I heard Japanese weren 8767 t too fond of trombones because it requires long arms. Anyway, I hope I made you smile at least with the weird question. P
Immerse within your own culture
What I found was that those who immersed themselves exclusively in their own culture ( mono-cultural churches, parties, gatherings) – even if they lived in a very mixed society abroad – were the ones who were adamant that it was easier and preferable to date within their own culture.
Am I saying that those who date outside of their culture are not in tune with their own? Certainly not, but they certainly have embraced other cultures more and are willing to look past any real, imagined or expected obstacles.
I spend a tremendous amount of time asking Japanese people, in Japanese, what they think about Japan, love, sex, foreigners, language, and everything else under the sun. This seems to elicit very different results than speaking in English. What I see often seems unlike the Japan depicted in books and on the net, and sometimes I wonder, What country are these people talking about? Anyway, I just try to present what I 8767 ve learned and experienced in the most authentic way possible, so hopefully others can think about Japan in a well-rounded manner. 8776
