Hi! I’m MJ, and I’m currently working in Japan as an educator since Aug 2013.

My interests include travelling, photography, and eating sweets.

I like Japan a lot, and had traveled to Japan several times before I started my job here. I find the language interesting as well, and have been studying it for several years now.

I do photography as a hobby, and I like shooting random static objects like signboards, and also like taking scenic shots and street shots. Lately I’ve taken an interest in HDR and long exposure photography as well. Feel free to access my photoblog at http://iroiro.tokyo if you are interested!

Like most of the other contributors of this blog, I’m pretty wired up as well and have my fair share of gadgets. When the time comes to replace my gadgets I would normally choose to go back to the brands which I’d tried and tested. A list of the gadgets that I currently own is listed here:
