Maki on the radio!

I was interviewed on WRS Geneva, an English-language radio station in Geneva (Genève), Switzerland, this past Tuesday, on their food programme called Stir It Up. The MP3 is up now for download (link now corrected!), so if you want to know how I sound, with a stuffed nose (from allergies…agh!) complete with my totally mixed up accent, my segment starts after the rhubarb at around 9:45. It might be of interest to people who want to know why I started blogging about Japanese food after moving to Switzerland of all places. I also talk about about the growing popularity of bento boxes!

Re: Maki on the radio!

That was a fun interview- I enjoyed listening to it. (If you ever had a New York accent, Maki, I think it's gone now. :) )

I still remember how hard it was for my parents to get Japanese (or even Asian) food when I was little. We used to have weekly trips to Chinatown here, and to New York just to get staples as well. Now, there are more grocery stores closer to where my parents live that carry Asian food, although my dad will still make an occasional run to New York.

Re: Maki on the radio!

I think I really only took on some NY vocabulary, like 'oy vay' and 'chutzpah' (don't say much of that anymore, but I still say 'oy vay' a lot).

I always thought Zürich was a desert when it came to Asian food, but now I know that it's really not so bad...compared to other places -_-;

Site performance issues

I know the site was hanging up a lot yesterday...when I was on the road, of course :/. It is experiencing some growing pains, which I hope to do something about as soon as I can.
