Fridge Magnets from Celia

An avid traveller, Celia did a month long trip to Europe in May this year and she got me a few fridge magnets. They arrived in the post on 28 July 2017.

People magnets are my favourite, also map and flag magnets too.

Apart from the people magnets, Celia also got me these:

Gonna put these under Transport and Animal. I'm a sucker for displaying and storing my magnets according to themes.

Wages of a Part Time Restaurant Staff in Tokyo

If you're wondering why things are relatively expensive in Japan, take a look at what a part time kitchen staff/floor staff earns in Japan:

Photo was taken from one of the notice boards at Shinjuku station in Tokyo.

The pay of JPY1,050 per hour is equivalent to the wages of a full time assistant manager or manager in Malaysia! Do the math and you'll know what I mean.

However this rate of wages for a kitchen staff/floor staff is justified due to the high cost of living in Japan. Imagine if their wages is low, people won't be able to survive.

So if a part time restaurant helper already earns this much, I wonder how much a manager earns in Japan? Probably equivalent to the wages of a CEO in Malaysia? Just kidding ... but who knows.
