I met a fabulously funny girl at the foreign correspondent's club of japan on Saturday night, and she has asked all of us to help her get the word out on her new blog.
Her name is Petal, and she has started a blog called Dear Ms. Petal which is an advice column for Western girls who are dating Japanese men.
Ok, so you're not a Western girl dating a Japanese man? That's ok, neither am I. (A Western girl, that is.)
Trust me, it won't matter where you or your partner is from, Dear Ms. Petal is hilarious. She's only written a few entries so far, but she promised there's plenty more breaking of cultural taboos and table-turning on the "white guy with Asian girlfriend" phenomenon to come. Enjoy!
