Emobile’s Pocket Wifi

Hereby I’m proudly announce that I’m now an Official User of Emobile’s Pocket Wifi.

It happened that today I went to Akihabara to researching PC Hardware with two of my friends who want to custom make up a Dekstop Computer. After we done our researching, I went to Sofmap to asking for Internet Service Provide. Just to let you know that I will move to Kanagawa and not in Tokyo anymore this coming 6th March. So I think it’s about time to apply for an Internet Service for my new place.

This is what the packages included. A SIM Card, Battery and the Device itself. With tons of statements and Instruction books.

I had been wanted the Pocket Wifi since half year before but can’t really make up my mind since I still can use Free Internet from my dorm at Asia Bunka Kaikan. And then today, I finally signed their contract for the 2 Year M Plan with monthly usage of 4980 Yen for the speed of 7.2 Mbps download and 5.8 Mbps Upload. While you need to pay 5980 for the first time for the device.

Starting it up for the first time. ^^

I signed it up mostly because I’m owning an Iphone. For Iphone Users out there, I’m sure that you have to pay around 6000 Yen monthly for your Packets fees. But with Pocket WIFI, you can use WIFI for your Iphone, Nintendo DS, PSP, Laptop, etc…. It can connect up to 5 devices at the same time!

So, the deal is that you don’t use your Iphone’s 3G network at all and using Pocket Wifi for networking. So you can save up to 4200 Yen monthly from your Iphone and pay up 4980 Yen for Pocket Wifi. So you are actually getting Pocket Wifi with only 780 a month!

Lovely. Liked it ^^

Really happy about it now and trying it out for Iphones and PSP now. If you are a person which keep travel outside and need internet connection everywhere you go, Emobile’s Pocket Wifi is definitely your choice. ^^

Results of Speed test and Ping test from Speedtest.net

What ISP (Internet Service Provider) you using now? Still remember having Streamyx back in Malaysia which provided 512Kbps for RM 66(around 2000 yen monthly). ^^

節分の日-豆まき (Setsubun’s Day, Throwing Beans)

Today I went to one of the nearest Shrine, Fuji Jinjya(富士神社) from my school for the setsubun festival(節分の日).

This is the building where all the kids are gathered.

In japan, usually 4th February is the day where it meant that the start of the new season, Spring. At that day, there are having the 豆まき(Mamemaki – Throwing Beans) ceremony which hopes that they can get good fortune for the year. They usually shout 「福は内、鬼は外」(Good fortune come in, Ghost go out!) and they start throwing the Beans at the people who act as the Ghost.

The one in green shirt is the Head Priest and he will leading all the other priests to throwing the snacks at the kids.

The Word “Bean” in Japanese is called {Mame} which have the meaning of the 魔滅 (Mametsu) – meaning destroying the Evil. So they believed that the bean can keep out bad fortune and asking good fortune in.

This is when they started to throwing the snacks.

I went there twice that day. The first time I went there alone at 3.00 p.m. At first I wonder why all the kids are holding up a plastic beg. Soon I know what happened. It’s used to catch the snacks which had been thrown by the priest from 2nd floor of the Shrine building. I didn’t bring anything with me and so I ended up empty hand…. LOL

Friends. From left: Yi Chin, Ming Li, Niji, XXX(forgot her name ^^)

The second time I went there at 4.00 p.m. This time I went there with few of my friends from my Japanese Language school. They also want to went there and take a look. Suddenly I encountered them at lobby and so we decided to go together.

She is the Ghost(Oni)!

One of my friend give me the idea that using the cap of my coat to act as the plastic beg to get the snacks. And what surprised me, It WORK!! I am able to get lots of snack at the second time. ^^

The Snacks we got from the Mamemaki Ceremony. Most of it is what I got. ^^

Friends with snacks get!!

And here you are, My photo once in a while. ^^

Really having fun that day with friends and once again I felt the greatness of the cultures of Japanese. One of my online friend said that it’s like children day for Japanese kids. I just smiled. ^^ what do you think?
