It's almost five years since I started learning Japanese. At about that time, inspired by watching Cardcaptor Sakura, I also made my first attempt at okonomiyaki. In the words of the Pokemon games, "It wasn't very effective."

Okonomiyaki (after a fashion)

As it happens, my Japanese class's homework this week was to make okonomiyaki, following a recipe in Japanese. It turned out rather better:


But of course, there's still a long way to go. Okonomiyaki here stands as a rather obvious metonym (or is it a synecdoche?) for my understanding of the culture and language generally. Vita brevis, ars longa, and all that.

I forgot. Battalions are made up of usually 4 companies, roughly 100 men each. The company is composed of platoons of 30. Three per company. Then section (ten men) and half section (5 men and a Lance Corporal).

Thank you. :)

I don't know what that dish is, but even to the untutored eye, the second one looks nicer and more tasty than the first. :)

The untutored tongue confirms this!
